So I really can't remember a time where I was happier than I have been lately. I have been busy, but I feel great. I enjoy coming to work, I enjoy my students, and I enjoy my coworkers. I love coming home and cooking great meals. Last night I cooked up steak and made a chipotle inspired dinner. They were kind of like burrito bowls. I also made a recipe for the Puerto Rican oatmeal we had this summer. SOOOOOO good! It turned out perfectly. I have also been really surprised with my bf. He has been really nice. I'm not saying he wasn't nice to me before, but he was never one to really share his feelings or be a cuddly kind of person. Well lately he can't get enough of me! lol. He has been getting his work around the house done during the day so he can spend more time with me when I get home. He said last night that he couldn't wait for me to get home (in 8 years this is a first!). He smiles at me and cuddles on me before we go to bed. Last night we were laying there watching tv and out of nowhere he says "good lord, you are pretty". What!??? He says I am getting so skinny and I'm a joy to lay with now. He can wrap one arm completely around me now. He would compliment me from time to time before, but I've never seen him lose his train of thought and thrown off track just by looking at me a certain way. This past week he's also been talking about maybe saving up for a house and has been leaning towards some more serious commitment conversations. Maybe sometime in the next 0-5 years I'll be engaged:) lol. There were times that I wasn't sure if it was going to happen for me, but I stopped stressing over it and was letting life work itself out. It is really nice feeling appreciated and desired. I really couldn't be happier with things right now. I mean, this weekend he even went with me when I ran errands for the day and took my cat to the vet. He used to not even go to the grocery store with me, let alone to the vet with me! I told him I appreciated it and he said no problem and that he was just trying to support our family. lol. He's the cutest. We are going back to puerto rico for Thanksgiving and I can't wait. He will be there Mon-Sat and I'll be there Thurs-Sat (thanks public school system for only giving us off Thurs and Fri lol). Either way, I am very excited to go back. We are staying with friends vs a hotel this time, so that'll be even better. But enough jibberjabber from me. My goal for the day is to quickly skim through a 30 pg article and write my 2 pg reflection assignment on it. My class is at 5:00 tonight. I have time to work on it after school when I am finished coach class at 3:15 (I have to leave at 4 for class), but I would REALLY like to get it done before then. I need to go to target tonight to try to find an orange shirt for our AVID induction ceremony that's tomorrow. I don't really want to go at 8:00 after class, so if I could get my hw done before the end of the day I can go to target in between school and class. We shall see:) Ttyl spark family!

So I had an interesting weekend. Friday I went to the track with my bf. That was nice. I haven't been to the track in a while and our first date was at that track in 2004. Saturday I had to work a wedding. It was pretty exhausting. Sunday I had a Sunday Funday with some coworkers. I went to her house at noon and we watched football at 1. Then we went out in the city. I left around 10:30. I drank and was originally planning on sleeping at her house, but around 7 decided I was getting kind of tired of the whole scene and some of my other friends had also left so I stopped drinking and went home that night. I really enjoyed seeing my friends and I have a new favorite, lower-calorie drink. It's grey goose citron with water and then you add that Mio Blueberry Lemonade liquid water flavor. The Mio is 0 calories and it is quite tasty. The only bad thing is that I gained 4 lbs after that night lol. I am sure a lot of it is water weight and should be going away in the next couple days. I am pretty certain I didn't gain 4 lbs of fat overnight... but it does kind of suck that I drank once in July and on my vacation in Aug and this is how one night of drinking impacts my body. I probably drink less than 10 times a year, can't I get a break!? The other thing that sucks is that I cut my toe really bad when I was walking back to my car. When I decided it was time to leave another person who is friends with my friend was also going to leave, so he walked with me back to her house so I could get my stuff. However, he was almost running he was walking so fast! I wasn't sure why he was walking that quickly (and I walk quickly myself!). I'm not sure if he was scared walking through the city or what, but I was having trouble keeping up with him. Well I stepped up onto a curb and didn't see that there was a brick border on the sidewalk. You know how in cities there are brick borders around trees on certain places of the sidewalk? Well there was a brick border on this part of the sidewalk near that curb, but the problem was there wasn't anything inside of the border... there was no tree or anything. It was dark and there was a car parked next to the curb, so I didn't see that the bricks were there. When I stepped onto the curb my toe slammed into the bricks since it was 2-3 inches higher than the curb should have been. I have a dime size flap sliced onto the front of my big toe and a cut on the top of my toe. It hurts really bad. But other than that the weekend was pretty nice. Yesterday we were off school for the Jewish Holiday so my bf and I had a nice lazy day. Took the cat to the vet and watched a movie. It was a lovely day. I have an incredibly busy week, so hopefully it goes quickly.

so i have been feeling very motivated in regards to my career... This is my first year officially with AVID. I stayed late after school with the AVID coordinator and bounced ideas off each other. Our theme this yr is super powers so i dressed up and posted what my super power is (i chose the power to motivate others).
Then i posted a blog of spending an hr reading. The kids are earning points by documenting activities like studying, reading, etc., so if i can do it they can.
Some kids i was bothering over the weekend posted a blog and did some activities themselves:) yesterday i chaperoned football and then got lunch with the avid coord and our former student. She is going to be a mom in 2 days, but is still fighting to finish her goal of earning a degree. It was a great lunch and so refreshing to see her!
Last night the bf and i went to a neighbors party. They hold it in a barn and there r hundreds of ppl! There were frozen margarita machines, two live bands, a beer truck, etc. It was bigger than any event or wedding ive attended. It was fun. Heres my outfit.
My bf found this pic when i started bartending two yrs ago (may 2011). Just a reminder of how far ive come :-\ its not my heaviest weight, but heavy enough.
