Hit a Nerve!

Here's something I've recently learned.....

If you're going to pass out, it really is best for it to happen while you're at the Doctor's office.

Oh, yes. This was the first time I've ever passed out when somebody was trying to take my blood. I was so embarrassed. The nurse dug and dug around for a vein and hit a nerve. All I can remember is an extreme pain shooting through my arm. Apparently I passed out and was very nauseous when I came to. I had to be checked out by the doc.... AGAIN! Blerg....

Sadly, we didn't get my lab work done. I told them I'd have to come back another time. I was just too sore.

It's hard to believe that I was having lab work done every 1-2 months for over 2 years. Now I have to do it a couple times a year and my body isn't happy about it. Darn health complications!!!

Baby Shower!

No, not mine, silly!

Maybe I should be careful. That's how rumors get started. FYI- We're waiting a few more years.

I helped host a baby shower for a wonderful teacher at school. It was so much fun! Here are a few (unedited) photos I took...

Mmm... Tasty cheese and crackers.

This was my first attempt at Cake Pops/Cake Balls.
I'll be making them again soon.
I may have to go with the
good ol' BOOMER SOONER theme. = )

Cheesecake bites


Love these!

The sweet corsage the mommy-to-be wore.
Can you believe her mom wore it and saved it all these years? WOW!

The Mommy's plate.... CUTE!

CONGRATS to my Sweet Friend!!!
She is going to be an amazing mother.

So, a few months ago (on my birthday in June to be exact) I went to Tener's in OKC and purchased a cute shirt. It has the word ROCK on it along with an electric guitar and some bling. I thought it was the perfect shirt for an elementary music teach to have in her wardrobe.
Well, a few weeks ago, a student of mine wore a shirt that said "You Rock". After telling the student how cute her shirt was I also informed her that I had a shirt that was very similar.
The student came to my room after school yesterday just to ask me if I would wear my ROCK shirt today. Isn't that cute?!?! How could I resist? So yes, I wore my ROCK shirt today along with a cute black skirt from Anthropologie, black leggings, and my b/w plaid Converse. Yes, I was very 80s. ; )
My outfit was quite the conversation among all my students today. I received so many smiles and compliments. Some students even told me I looked like a teenager. Imagine that! HA!!!
One of the TAs that come to my classroom thought my outfit was really fun. She stated how neat it was and said that my students must really love me. It was interesting to hear things from her perspective.
I LOVE teaching elementary music! I feel that my position gives me an incredible opportunity to get these kids pumped up and excited about music. Not all musicians are crazy old men (sorry, Beethoven). Ha!

After school today, one of my students asked me a really cute question...
Student: "Mrs. M, do you ride the same bus as T (initials only for privacy)?"
Me: "Ummm, no. I drive a car."

The things elementary kids say really make me smile. = )

So... here I am sporting the ROCK shirt and my new hair cut.
