This will be a quick post because I’ve got to get dressed to head off to The Nutcracker Ballet!!!!! I’m so excited, it should be a really fun date night!
Not as exciting, was this morning, when I overslept and had to sprint to school to make it to my classroom before the bell! I snacked on this Chocolate Peppermint Stick Luna bar on the train ride there.
I used to have a love affair with Luna bars in college but they are not my favorite anymore. I’m not sure what is turning me off, I think the texture. I’d like to retry some of the flavors but I don’t want to spend the money if I end up disliking them.
I obviously couldn’t pack lunch this morning so I ended up eating an unphotographed slice of cheese pizza (and an Emergen-C). I also had a sour patch kid – my girls’ class is so cute, they bring me a piece of candy every day! I had a pretty good day today. My kids were calm and they got really into our reading lesson. We are on a journalistic article unit so I brought in magazines for them to analyze. And during our writing period (we are writing articles about the 1920’s) I blasted some Dizzy Gilepse for theme music!
When I got home I found this wonderful Christmas box from my grandma:
A and I each got an ornament (mine is a kitchen mitt and A’s is the leg lamp from “A Christmas Story”)
and I got some TJ’s $$ and my Nana knitted A a homemade stocking! So sweet.
For dinner I topped my chicken chili leftovers with a Tbsp TJ’s light Mexican cheese and a dollop of nonfat plain Greek yogurt.
Chili is always good leftover, this was even better than in the restaurant!
I’m still a bit hungry so I’ll probably have a snack at some point. I’m so excited about tonight! What is your favorite dance/musical production?
