stamp me a liar.

I had such big plans to blog, blog, blog this year.  Much like many of my best intentions, I've failed miserably.  Stamp me a liar.  Ok, not going to dwell...

So, it's spring and life is in full swing for Bo and I.  Among other things...
  • Bo has recently been named Travelers Rest High School's Head Wresting Coach.  He is super excited to be back at it.  He could barely handle a season away from what he loves to do the most--coach. I have to admit I'm pretty excited too, and I'm ready to get back to weekend tournaments and life as a team mom.  
  • I've been licensed to teach Zumba and TurboKick for several months now, and I've done nothing with it YET.  Monday, I've got a meeting at Anytime Fitness about teaching group fitness classes and training and I couldn't be more excited about it!  I've been working on Zumba choreography all. day. long.  Wish me luck!
  • Bo and I are in the process of building our first home together!  We found a great neighborhood in Simpsonville, which is about 15 minutes from where we are currently renting.  The projected completion date is the end of September.  Did I mention that's right after school starts back?  Yikes.  Our lease ends July 31st, so my gracious in-laws are allowing us to stay with them until the house is finished. With two dogs, that's not just gracious of them...that makes them saints!
  • In February, I was chosen as a Golden Apple Teacher.  Being new to Greenville, I wasn't even sure what it meant at first but I found out soon enough that it was a huge honor.  I can't believe that out of the thousands of teachers in our district, I was nominated for this award.  My room dad, Rip, is responsible for my nomination.  He is phenomenal, and he deserves more credit than I do honestly.  He has been such a blessing to my class!
    Rip in action with the kids!
    My students made a toast to me for receiving the Golden Apple Award :)
    If you're brave enough, you can see the video here.  View at your own risk.  I can promise you'll see sweat on my upper about nervous!
  • I've made an incredible friend through work.  You only come across these kind a few times throughout your lifetime...the kind who you click with quickly.  The kind of friend who gets you, and still loves you.  Danessa is that friend, and I'm SO thankful for her friendship!

    Ok, so last, but most importantly...this girl is missing her family!  I'm so sad to say that this is the first Mother's Day I won't be home to spend it with my mom.  She's truly an amazing lady, and she's made me who I am today. 

    Happy Mother's Day to the world's best mom!
