Today is a deceiving sunny day. It looks warm, but the wind is cutting. I've underdressed for 2 walks with the dog, which only makes me wish for spring that much more. It's essentially here; it's been an incredibly mild winter often in the 40s and 50s. Regardless, there's something about the mental shift of spring break to make me really think we've turned the corner. Exactly two weeks from today I'll be road tripping it to Texas with some of the fam to visit my sister and her family. San Antonio and South Padre for a few days - I can't wait for lots of beach, sun, souvenir shopping (I love it no matter how tacky) and good Mexican food. Too bad the two weeks are full of meetings, report cards, curriculum work, and oh yeah - teaching.

How have I not seen this? God Bless the person who took two of my favoritest/most pop culturally relevant things and mashed them up. This is my reward for late night websurfing/facebook wall-stalking. Does anyone say websurfing anymore? Season finale tonight, and I've miraculously stayed away from spoilers. Downton Abbeyonce.

Exactly one month from today my spring break will begin. Can't come soon enough.

Happy Puppy Bowl!

For the first time in many years I am foregoing any Super Bowl parties. I like football but I couldn't care less about either team. I'm finding other things (like adorable puppies and Downton Abbey) to occupy my time.
