Pumpkin Pie

I was inspired by the pumpkin in my pantry to make pies for my students. We are learning about the letter P this week, so Pumpkin Pie will be on the menu for snack tomorrow.

It's fun being a preschool teacher (most days).

Beach People

I have laughed that there are beach people and mountain people. I just don't get mountain people. Yeah you can say, wow that's a big mountain. That is cool.

The ocean, you see it, you smell it, you hear it. Well, you can even taste it if you really wanted to.

Ah, I am one of the beach people.

The Year of...

Last Year I listened to a lot of Jerry Jeff Walker. Josh and I stumbled onto an opportunity to see him perform in April and it was the beginning of an almost obsession with Mr. Bojangles.

In 2010, I saw Lyle Lovett in concert twice and listened to his music in heavy rotation.

Who will I discover in 2012?

Shopping Goals--Update

I wish for three things in my upcoming shopping trips:

A pair of black comfortable pumps

A belt worthy of wearing with dresses/tunics

I bought one belt at target and one at Burke's Outlet. I have worn the Target one with many compliments.

A pair of skinny/straight legged jeans that will stay tucked in boots

I tried on a pretty fabulous pair at Target, but $27 seemed steep for Target for a style I wasn't sure about. They were also quite distressed and I wanted more of a dark wash. I bought a dark pair at Walmart for $13 that are oddly comfortable and fit pretty well. I think I will like this style more than I thought, so I may keep the look out for a higher quality pair.
