Valentine's and Snowmobiling

So I was looking at the usual blogs that I try to keep up on and I noticed that almost all of them had posts about Valentine's Day. Well, I obviously did not. So since I need to do a catch up blog anyway I decided that I would just include V-day in it.

Valentine's Day was great! It wasn't lavish or extravagant, but I got to spend it with Michael so it was perfect! I have never been on a Valentine's date before so I was excited to do my first one with him. I had to teach all day (my kids made the CUTEST valentine's and it was a terrific day minus a girl cutting a boys ear off...) and then after teaching I had to work. So because of those two things we kind of got a later start but I was perfectly fine with it. We went to dinner at Asian Star, exchanged gifts (he gave me a gorgeous necklace) and indulged in some chocolate covered strawberries and grapes from Cummings, and then we went and saw No Strings Attached. It was such a fun day and I am so grateful that I got to spend it with Michael. I especially appreciated the movie because he HATES chick flicks and he knew I had really been wanting to see this one. He is my favorite!

And then for an update on life... Life is so busy! I absolutely love student teaching. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't laugh out loud and getting 25 hugs every day makes me anxious to go back for more the next day. However, I don't love working while student teaching. I am at school 40-45 hours a week and then trying to work on top of it kicks my butt, but it will all be over March 21 yippee!!!

My mom took Sterling and I snowmobiling on presidents day and we all had a blast! I love any chance to spend time with my family. Some highlights of the trip were:
1. On our reservation paper it says that there are cabins available to stay in. We pull up and there are about 5 big cabins in a row. Sterling then states, "Well I guess those are the cabins people stay in." Thanks for the point out captain obvious!
2. Within our first five minutes of riding, I rolled my snowmobile with my mom on the back, then we both tried to stand up and had snow up to the middle of our thighs.
3. Sterling going off a jump and then coming over to us saying, "I feel like I broke my face and then a smile and a laugh to reveal a bloody lip and mouth and my mom then proceeding to say, "Look Morgan, he is bleeding!" Thanks for letting me know in case I couldn't notice his bright red teeth. (He is all better now, in case you were wondering).
We had so much fun and laughed a ton! I had to tell Sterling many times to stop making me laugh so that I didn't pee myself in a one piece snowsuit.

Life is great and I wouldn't have it any other way!

P.S. A few weeks ago Michael bought me a pink Williams jersey that I had been dying to have. Thanks a lot for the trade D-Will!!
