I had this weird idea for a bean-dippish-taco-meat-cheesy-onion-dip-type-combination-concoction-thing for a few months, but finally got around to seeing if my idea worked a couple weeks ago. It worked. Enough so that Sean has asked for this to eat while we... Continue reading

I did this at the beginning of the semester and it is awesome. It's amazing that such a simple change could make me feel like I have control of all the emails from students, as opposed to being at the mercy of the a notification popping up. And has anyone mentioned how cute all your apps look in rainbow order? Love it!

Starting about 2:30pm, Shamrock perches himself in front of the front windows waiting for Sean to get home. Cute, until he starts barking at something (or pretty much anything) he sees. I've felt a lot like poor Shamrock this week,... Continue reading

I bought these pens ...a cute, little, fine-tipped rainbow...the entire package of eighteen pens is only 5 inches by 6 inches. This is good because my school bag pretty much ends up as a traveling office. I try to pack... Continue reading

I was trying to combine Summer, Fall and Winter...since basically it's the time of year that all three seem to happen at the same time. Right after Christmas I was in the backyard and saw our next door neighbor's backyard... Continue reading
