Ninja Mode & Boat Makeover

Just so you know ahead of time.... this post is not teacher related.  But you know what?  Teachers have lives too!  However minimal they are.  When I started this blog, my intention was to share things about my life as well as teaching ideas so I am taking a step away from all the "teacher stuff" today to share some random life happenings.

First of all, I'm home alone tonight!!  My husband is in Sales so he drives a lot.  Sometimes he has to go out of town for the day AND night!!  Today is one of those days :(.  He left this morning and won't be back until tomorrow evening!!  I do get sad when he has to leave, especially for a night.  But really, I will probably get a lot done around the house today!  And I'll probably do a bunch of school stuff, duh!  Anyway, I found these on Pinterest awhile ago and they cracked me up!!  I think it fits my situation for tonight!

No, I will not be answering the door bell if it rings, and yes I will be checking all of my locks several times throughout the evening, especially if I hear a noise.

I also want to share our boat makeover!  My husband was raised in St. Louis, where we currently live and he is a pretty big St. Louis Cardinals fan!  After two years of being together, he finally took me to my first Cardinals game in May! We have been a couple times since then.  Once was when the Cardinals were playing the Kansas City Royals, which is where I lived for almost ten years.  So... I felt more obligation to the Royals then to the Cardinals and felt like being a little bit of a rebel.  I wore Royals gear... to the Cardinals game!  That was a big NO-NO according to my husband.  But guess what.... the Royals just happened to win that game!!  I'm not joking when I say my husband wouldn't talk to me after the game.

Anyway, since my husband loves the Cardinals, he decided to show it on our boat.  He had the boat "wrapped" by Vinyl Images.  A boat's a boat to me!  But my husband loves it, and what makes him happy, makes me happy!  We took it out last weekend for the first time since it got it's makeover.  We got a lot of compliments!

I even got to wakeboard, which makes me happy!  I learned how to wakeboard last summer and love it!  Soon, school will be starting and we won't have the time to go out, so we need to enjoy it while we can!  What do you think of the boat?


  1. I can't wait to see the husband's handiwork in your classroom. The pieces look great. What a guy!

  2. My husband travels for work too, and I hate it! Do not watch a Law and Order marathon and think you're going to get any sleep. Foolish!

    1. Oh I know Megan! I have to watch "happy" stuff when the hubby is gone! I swear 30 minutes after posting this my doorbell rang!! But it was still daylight so I felt comfortable answering it!
