fall festival

today i had a fall festival party in class with my students and i spent a lot of money and time getting everything ready but it was so worth it because they had so much fun. my favorite was when they played the mummy wrap game.

working with kids is the best, i had a lot of laughs with them today.

cheers to 25

i've had the most awesome birthday week!
my birthday was last saturday and i spent the weekend in beautiful puerto rico and it was perfection. but more about that later with pictures.
last night i celebrated with my miami friends and we had an awesome time. we went to splitsville which is the best bowling alley and the food is amazing there.
i think 25 is going to be a good age.

fins to the right, fins to the left

so last weekend i went to my first pro football game ever and i had an awesome time.
it was dolphins vs the bills and the dolphins did not disappoint me and came through with the win. i am surprised how much i loved it, i'm ready to go get some season tickets, who's with me??

my old friend jo-nathan who i haven't seen in quite some time so it was great to catch up.

i loved his shirt, muy creative!

very near and dear to my <3

hello fall

i am so excited for fall. don't get me wrong summer is my favorite season but i'm ready for this fall season. i can't wait for it to cool down. although this is miami so the cold days will be few and far in between but thats the kind of relationship i like with the cold weather, short and sweet.

i think all the shopping i've been doing is what's really getting me excited. i'm a huge fan of tights, dresses and sweaters! please come soon chilly weather.

windy city

so chicago did not get the 2016 olympics, boo!!!
i could have easily experienced the olympics for the first time in my second home. oh well looks like i'll just have to make a trip to rio de janeiro in 2016;)

but even though the olympics won't be in chicago, i will be there in november! i miss my family so much and i LOVE getting to spend holidays with the whole family.
can't wait to see these people.
