The Most FAVORITE of them all.

Tomorrow is my last day of school. My last day of my first year teaching High School. The LAST day.

Jumping in Jumpers HAPPY!
No more teaching those RUDE High School Boys.
No more staring at bullet holes.
No more pencils.
No more books.
No more Teacher's dirty looks.
...until August anyway. But still...I'm EX....wait for it...CITED!

I have some summer goals I'd like to accomplish. I'm going to go Cray Cray on this summmaaaaa!

1. Kick out this summer reading list
  • Bossypants
  • The Happiness Project
  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
  • Reread The Alchemist
  • AND SO MANY MORE! **Any Recommendations?**
2. Jog at the beach. Sleep at the beach. Eat at the beach. Read at the beach. Make sandcastles with  paper cups...complete with the moat that will never hold water because the water just wont stay above the sand at the beach. NOT swim. at the beach (Maybe I should make "Learn to Swim" a goal?)
Barbados 2006 with my beautiful Auntie Irene
3. Organize the HECK out of our house. Purge all the closets. Get rid of the junk (T, can you please come over and help me with this? I'll pay you in....Crustables.) Put away wedding stuff...because the wedding has been over for 7 months now, Joanna!

4.  Be a better Blogger. I have been slacking on my Project Wifey Wife. I assure you that I have been eating good dinners, even if I haven't been posting them. And Hubby is being fed still, too. I have some summer recipes in mind and a new project in store. ::rubs hands together::  MWAHAHAH!

5. Jump back on the Healthy wagon. This is what I ate for dinner last night....

I didn't eat this ALL by myself. I had some help. But now I feel like I just murdered someone. Guilty. If I don't do something about this soon...someone will have to shoot me with a tranquilizer gun. I'm going to run my buh-dunka-dunk like a tranquilizer fun is being aimed at my muffin top. Healthy eating. Heathy habits. Heathy feeling!

  • What are you summer plans/goals?
  • Any book recommendations for me?


  1. OMG, you teach at a high school?!? Sorry, I feel sooo bad for you. lol Especially if you taught at the high school I went to. lol

    LEARN HOW TO SWIM!! Please!! I'm not the best swimmer but plan on taking lessons so I can take surf lessons :)

  2. How exciting! Hooray for your last day!
    I want to finish building my house this summer and move in already!

  3. Sounds awesome! I'm super jealous of your summer plans :)

    Don't feel too bad about your dinner last night. Looks awesome! We all need a little of that in our life :)

  4. Yay for the last day of school! I wish I lived closer to you so I could be a BEACH BUM with you! sigh... maybe one weekend I'll fly over there just so we can lay on the beach, talk smack about the weirdos on the beach, and eat ice cream!

    I'm soooo envious of your dinner - I've been craving the HAT months now.

  5. How exciting!! Congrats on your first year Joanna! P.S. Don't feel too guilty about that dinner. It looks mighty tasty. Plus, you can claim it as your celebratory meal :)

  6. Sign me up for the beach! My biggest goals are similar- read and run more, maybe do a little writing, and clean like crazy. And also get the puppy fully trained before school goes back in August.


I want to know what you really I do! Leave a comment, question, or just a hello. It'll make me SMILE!
