Show & Tell

Well, hello again. Sorry for the short absence. I went out of town this weekend to visit one of my best friends, Katie. We went to Sequoia National Park on Saturday and played in the snow all day, it was fabulous. We spent the weekend talking, exercising, and eating lots of chocolate. I will post pictures soon. But, now it's back to reality. Today was the first day of my second semester of grad school. I have class Monday-Thursday from 4-10P. Ouch. Plus I have to teaching/tutoring hours for four of my classes.

Before I left on Friday I stopped by the new Goodwill in Sacramento. And it was ahhh-mazing. I can't wait to go back with Liz on Saturday. I only had a few minutes, and I was with one of my students, so I couldn't look at everything. But look at what I did find!

Floral Fabric- $.50
Green Thermos- $1.99
Holly Hobby Print- $1.99
Glass Owl Cup- $.50
Zippers (For a headband!)- $.99/piece
Jesus Christ Superstar Album (For Jordan)- $1.99

Also, my lovely sister just spend the last two weeks in Hawaii and came back with the most ridiculous tan that made me want to smack her (out of jealousy). But, she did get me presents!!! Oh, how I love presents. And how perfect is this- it's all plumeria stuff! Very appropriate I would say.

She got me a beautiful plumeria vase. I wooden plumeria bookmark. A plumeria root/stick/thing that I get to plant and grow (with help because I manage to kill even cactus). Annnnddddd, she even gave me a pearl- you know the kind that are still in the oyster and you get to open it up! I was so excited. I am taking it to a jeweler on Thursday to have it set in a silver ring.

Okay, Okay, that's enough show and tell for one night.
