Totally Tuesday ( A Tad Late)

Last week Emilie and I went to Target
and we bought some egg coloring fun things.
Tattoo Fun & Giltter Fun.
So on Tuesday night...
Emilie Ashley and I decorated eggs.
We had so much fun.
You might just be able to tell in the following pictures...
{Emilie having a little fun with the paint}
{Me with two of my eggs.}
{Ashley decorating her egg.}
{Some of our finished eggs.}

Funny (kinda) story behind this picture.
(Let's see if I can actually tell it over this.)
On Tuesday, I took Bucky on a walk down at the beach.
I thought it would be nice for the both of us.
We walked along the path in huntington.
We started at 9th street and went to 16th
(its about as far as bucky was feeling).
When we got back to the car I opened up the passenger door
to take off his leash and put in the car.
Bucky decided to hop in and sit in the drivers seat.
I thought..."Oh this is so cute Bucky."
He then would not get out of the seat.
I tried pulling on him.
Nothing worked.
Well, maybe treats would have.
but unfortunately I forgot to bring them with.
So I went to the drivers side and tried to get him out,
he decided to jump over the middle console
and hop into the back seat.
Which yeah...I was okay with.
I was backing out of the drivers side
and the wind blew my door really hard
and I didn't realize it until my hand...
was caught in the door.
Four of my fingers were slammed in the door.
Yeah...it hurt!!
My fingers may still be a little bruised.
But Buckman and I both enjoyed our walk...
thats the important part, right?

Have a fab day :)

Holla at my Labbies...

Here is a little shout out to my labbies (lab group).

no one hearing it

Many things...

I am a little behind this week.
So here is a little catch up.

1. My dads birthday was on Monday.
He is the most amazing dad.
He is such a hard worker.
He is funny.
He loves his family.
He has a strong testimony of the gospel.
And I LOVE HIM! <3
{My dad and I dancing at my last youth conference dance.}
2. Midterms are over (kinda).
I had a poly sci midterm.
American Lit midterm.
Bio midterm.
Psychology midterm is in 2 weeks.
I am so happy midterms are over.
It feels GREAT!


3. The weather has been beautiful.
And since it is-you know what that means...
BEACH!!!!!!
Time to work on my tan.
Thank you sun for shining.
Keep the good weather coming!!

4. iTunes gave me 20 free downloads recently.
There is one song in particular that I just LOVE right now.
Its a reggae song by MISHKA.
Called STAY BY MY SIDE.
If you have not heard it...I highly recommend listening to it.

5. SPRING BREAK!!!!
My spring break officially started yesterday.
I am so happy.
Monday I am babysitting for the majority of the day.
Tuesday-Saturday will be beach days.
Along with teaching piano every day.
Oh and some studying for psychology.
But mainly...Relaxation time!!

Cool as a Cucumber.

Since I know all of you have so many questions about cucumbers...
I AM HERE TO ANSWER THEM FOR YOU!

1. Feeling tired in the afternoon, put down the caffeinated soda and pick up a cucumber.
Cucumbers are a good source of B Vitamins and Carbohydrates that can
provide that quick pick-me-up that can last for hours.

2. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower?
Try rubbing a cucumber slice along the mirror, it will eliminate
the fog and provide a soothing, spa-like fragrance.

3. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge?
Cucumbers have been used for centuries and often used by European trappers,
traders and explores for quick meals to thwart off starvation.

4. Stressed out and don't have time for massage, facial or visit to the spa?
Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water, the chemicals and nutrients
from the cucumber with react with the boiling water and be released in the steam,
creating a soothing, relaxing aroma that has been shown the reduce
stress in new mothers and college students during final exams.

5. Just finish lunch and realize you don't have gum or mints?
Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue
for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath, the photochemical will kill the
bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath.

6. Looking for a 'green' way to clean your faucets, sinks or stainless steel?
Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to clean,
not only will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the shine, but it won't leave streaks
and won't harm your fingers or fingernails while you clean.

7. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the cucumber and
slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also works great on crayons
and markers that the kids have used to decorate the walls!!

AND MY FAVORITE!!
8. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or to the pool?
Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem area for a few minutes,
the photochemical in the cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten,
firming up the outer layer and reducing the visibility of cellulite.
Works great on wrinkles too!!!

Terrific Talents.

Today went a little slow and I was not having the best day.
No specific reason at all...but it was just one of those days.
I was really hoping my students would do something to make me laugh.
And all four of my students did just that.
Thanks Luke, Sabrina, Fiona, and Lauren.
{HAPPY BIRTHDAY FIONA!!}

I just had to record two of my students doing something special for me.
These two girls are so adorable and always bring a smile to my face.

Here is Sabrina {8} doing a handstand.
video

This is Lauren {8} doing some of her hip-hop moves.
She and her little sister just started a hip-hop class.

Hopefully Lauren will keep doing some of her hip-hop moves for me.

I love my students :)
