10 on 10 :: February 2012

I decided to participate in 10 on 10 today. 

Take ten pictures on the tenth day of the month to find the life and beauty among the ordinary things of your day...

Sounds fun to me, wish I would have thought to do one in January :)

I started off the day with my trusty old flatiron. I've had this thing since college (can you tell?) and I love it. I even got a new CHI for Christmas last year, but for some reason, I can't seem to part with this guy.

Fridays are "jeans day" at work. Yippee! I would wear jeans to work every day if it were allowed.

My usual breakfast...whole wheat english muffin and unsweetened iced tea. Doesn't look too appetizing here, haha

The preschoolers don't have school on Fridays, which means Fridays are our plan day. Today I worked on my assessments all. day. long. 

The new plastic bowls I bought at Target to keep in the lounge for lunches. There are never any dishes or utensils in there. I've been known to eat soup out of a solo cup.

Look who I found snuggling on the new bed when I got home from work.

We met our friends Megan and Dusty for pizza at Angelo's. Yum!

Then to Mugsy's for Margaronas!

Ready for bed in my heart jammas.

And it wouldn't be a Friday night without some YouTube videos.
Well, that's Paul's motto anyway.

Happy February Tenth!

Insta Weekend

Last weekend Paul and I went up to Boulder to celebrate the end of recruiting season, my birthday, and Super Bowl.
Here's a little recap of our weekend, Instagram Style!

On Saturday, Paul and I drove up to Boulder. A big storm had come through the day before and they got over 2 feet of snow. I just love those Flatirons all covered in snow.

On Saturday night we met our friends for drinks at one of my favorite spots in Boulder, Half Fast. Love these girls!

Sunday morning before Paul and I headed over to the Steele's for their annual Super Bowl Party, we made a stop at the liquor store to stock up before the big game. So many choices...

Have you ever done one of these grids for a football game? It's so fun! Everyone puts money in and then you divide all the squares up evenly. At the end of each quarter, if the score matches up with one of your squares, you win a portion of the money. I won the first and second quarters woohoo!

Shots after the third quarter...

A little Kings Cup after the game.

At midnight, Rachel and Lyndsay surprised me with a bottle of vodka and a giant cookie cake for my birthday.  They know me too well ;)

On Monday, we met my parents for a birthday lunch at Ruebens (yum!) before heading back down to Pueblo. And when we got back to our house, our new bed had arrived. Yippee!

Such a fun weekend with family and friends! Another birthday in the books. I was sad to see it come to an end, but when I got to school on Tuesday morning, this pretty pink bag from my co-teacher and these sweet cards from my kiddos were waiting for me  :)
