It has started!

College Football Season!

The Pirates kicked off their season today against Virginia Tech. While the game was not perfect, and a lot of mistakes were made... the Pirates pulled it off with a V-I-C-T-O-R-Y!
A win is always a great way to start a season. Coming off of a Bowl win last year and a win in the season opener, our team's confidence should be through the roof! Can't wait til next week for the first "true" home game of the season!

"I just want to thank everybody I've ever met in my entire life."

Especially the people who have inspired entries in this blog! :) I won an award! Imagine that... I go a whole month without posting, and a lot of my posts don't amount to much, and I still won an award!

My friend KT over at Stumbled Onto the Blogwagon presented me with the Brillante Weblog Premio award! Here's the "trophy"

Isn't it cute?! She noted on her blog that I "make a mean towel cake" Thanks KT :)

Now it is my turn to give this award to other bloggers... so here is a list blogs that I will give this award to... (click on the names to see their blogs... some may be private)

How I Changed a Year - This blogger writes about how he finds random change laying around and collects it. He updates the blog with a running total. What a great idea!

The Desert Glows Green - I found this blogger on a message board for Substitute Teachers, which now is no longer running. He writes about a variety of things, much like me. A lot of his posts deal with teaching.

The Theologian's Cafe - This is a xanga site that I have been reading for years. Dan blogs about almost anything and everything. A lot of his posts make you think.

If Walls Could Talk - This one is private I know... but its Lindsey... who I have heard so much about in person.. and actually got to meet once... She thinks I am a lot more hilarious than I actually am.

Congrats to the winners! I read a lot of other great blogs, but a lot of them have already won the award... so I didn't really follow the rules. Speaking of rules, here they are....

1. Post the award logo on your page.
2. Link back to the person who awarded you.
3. Nominate seven other blogs, and add links to their blogs.
4. Make sure your nominees know they’ve won!

Oh one more thing....

Since I have installed SiteMeter on my blog, it is very interesting to see who visits my blog and what brought them here. I actually come up in a few google searches, some of them on the first page of results (how cool is that!).

The one thing that brings most people to my blog the most, which is surprising, is an image search for Teacher Hand Pointers. I bought one earlier this year at a book fair (click to see post). However, the image no longer shows up, because the link I used for the picture is broken. I found another picture, and decided to upload it this time, so there will be no broken links.

This is my #1 referral to my site....

Really cool Teacher hand pointers!

Ok, really going to bed now!



I can't believe that I haven't updated my blog in almost a month! I haven't forgotten about it, but I have been really busy! Things are starting to slow down, so hopefully I will have some time to update things. For now, I will just hit some of the highlights... I will probably elaborate on some of these later.

  • It is only a month and a half until my sister gets married... I've been being the great MOH that I am and doing lots of stuff for the wedding... so I've been busy.
  • I'm still liking my job. We had a few crazy weeks, but things are starting to calm down, I think.
  • Tupperware has kind of taken a back burner to everything, but hopefully it will be picking back up soon. (NOTE: The current catalog is about to end, so some things are on sale right now. A new GREAT catalog will be coming out August 30. Check out sales and HUGE savings at
  • Still very single, with no sign of that changing anytime soon :(
Well now, I must go to sleep because work comes early in the morning!
