Catching Up

I know, it's been awhile since I've blogged. It seems that life has been busy and filled with more drama than I'd like. I like to keep my life simple & peaceful and lately it's been neither of these things. I'm hoping that the weekend will provide me the chance to collect my thoughts and get back on track.
Enough of that....let me catch you up on some of the fun things that have been going on in my life.
#1 Have been having a blast teaching my jewelry class at the middle school. Last week I had 6 kids (TWO BOYS!!!) and we worked outside because it was so warm and sunny =) Only two more classes left!
#2 Had a great time catching up with my crafty friend Melissa the other night. I love talking with her about etsy & blogging. If you haven't checked out her store lately be sure to get there. She has so many adorable things! AND be sure to check out her blog she always has the cutest photos =)
#3 Been going to the gym a lot lately and am 2 pounds away from my first goal. Once I hit that magic number I'm buying myself a new pair of jeans =)
#4 Doing lots of planning for our summer road trip. Found this great tent that connects to the element!
#5 Enjoyed a bottle of my favorite wine from Homer with my Stephie friend. Sometimes it's nice to debrief the work week with a big ol' pizza and bottle of wine! This was definitely one of those weeks!
#6 BIG NEWS! Adam and I have joined the iphone revolution. I have to admit, I thought it was a bit over the top at first. I really don't NEED an iphone and have a hard time justifying spending the money on a new toy. But, I've gotta say I am loving everything about it. They're so user friendly and convenient. Here's a glimps of how I used mine on the first night I had it. {went for a walk with Rosco. I'm listening to music on my iphone and I get a text from Adam "miss my dog..send pic" I take a picture of Rosco walking and send it back to Adam. Continue listening to my ipod. Decide that I'm a little bored on my walk so I check facebook and my e-mail. Get down to the lake and am enjoying the beauty of the evening when I notice a blue heron near the water. Seeing a perfect photo opportunity and hating myself for not bringing my Canon I quickly remember that my ipod has a camera!! Take picture of blue heron...not the best quality but I love that I was able to capture this moment without being lugged down with lots of gadgets!}
Looking for a fresh start and hoping for some wonderful adventures this month! I've got lots of good things planned and think it's just what I need to get back to my simple (DRAMA FREE!!) life =)
* May 2nd HAIR CUT!!!! Will it be long enough to donate???
*May 8th is Juneau appreciation day. I love the tram rides up to Mt. Roberts. I'm hoping to get up there and take some photos.
*May 15th is the Think Pink Beer & Wine tasting. It's a fundraiser that a few wonderful women are putting on to raise money for the 3 day Susan G. Komen walk. Can't wait to dress up and enjoy some good wine, tasty food, jazzy music and great company.
* May 22nd is the retirement party for one of our beloved teachers. It'll be sad not to have her around next year but I'm looking forward to a great BBQ and wishing her fairwell in her upcoming adventures!
