Interview from Nell

I got these questions emailed to me from Nell.

1. How many pairs of shoes do you own? Are they all different or do you have a shoe "type"?

I own too many to even think of counting! Most of them are black...no specific type, unless you count casual as a type of shoe. I am now in love with Mary Jane Crocs!

2. What's your pet peeve? What really annoys you?

Hmm...my pet peeve would have to be people who don't listen to me the first time I say something and I have to repeat myself!

3. What is one piece of advice that was one of the best you’ve ever received?

When doing your job, think of the person who comes behind you and what will be expected of them (I am always telling my interns this advice).

4.If you had to pick one color to wear for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Green!!!

5. Do you have a "green thumb"?

Oddly enough, for a person who loves green as much as I do...I don't have a "green thumb." Hubby takes care of all the plants around here!

Want to play? Here's the scoop:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me." (and
give me your email address if you can to make this
easier on me!)
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I
get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the
questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to
interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you
will ask them five questions.

Champion Reader


Battle of the Books Trophy
Originally uploaded by jmnkrt.

Yes...it's true...I am a Champion Reader complete with a trophy to prove that point (lol). I read all of the Sunshine State 4th Grade Battle Books this year. I liked some...and others were not that good. What ever happened to children reading the classics?

Secret Pal 10 Package #1

Imagine my surprise to come home to this package! Everything is so nice and again I have a wonderful secret pal! My pal used some pretty green flowery wrapping paper and also some green bags with wizard of oz stickers holding them closed. I received some Opal sock yarn, a Starbucks card (woohoo coffee!!! Caramel Macchiato, here I come!), some scrapbook supplies, a sheep magnet, some easter chicks, a stuffed bunny (wearing green of course), and some chocolate! Also there was a sheep card with a cute note written inside! Thanks secret pal....whoever you are!!

Boring Field Trips are the worst!!

Florida Aquarium

We went on a field trip today to the Florida Aquarium in Tampa. The last time I went was during their one year anniversary and even with all the additions, I am still equally unimpressed! Most of the exhibits are focused on wetlands and swamps, only a few dedicated to the beach. Also, the displays are all in very dark rooms and it is hard to take a good picture of anything. The kids were bored for most of the trip...they got excited for lunch (that they brought from home). Here are some of the pictures that came out ok...
