Heyyyyy, my peeps! As promised, I’m here to share some pics from the Musically Macabre Halloween Hootenanny I attended on Saturday. It was a BLAST AND A HALF! We kicked things off at Adam and Roxy’s place, some teacher pals who throw the absolute BEST parties. I met a ton of celebrities while I was there.
Yo, Halloween, ‘sup? I’m ready for you! Well, not really. But I totally know what I’m gonna BE! Or who, rather. That’s half the battle, right? Now all I need to do is hope I can scrounge up an outfit in time for the Halloween Karaoke Extravaganza I’m attending on Saturday!
Last year, I went to the same party and knocked everyone’s socks off with my Sandy Olsson costume. I was ‘bad’ Sandy with the leather and the tight pants and the at-ti-tude. Oh, lookie here, I have a couple pics!
Okay, you guys, it’s time that I confess. I am not cut out for camping. I’m just not. I’ve tried to like it, tried to pretend that it’s something I’m totally capable of doing and ROCKING, but it’s no use. This last trip to the Adirondacks proved it.
Hey, all you fabulous people!
I can’t come to the blog right now ’cause I’m Adirondacks-bound! That’s right, for three exciting days and two starry nights, I’ll be totally off the grid. Soaking in the beautiful scenery, hiking, camping, and bonding with all the outdoor ed. students who are lucky enough to ditch school for the remainder of the week! And, best part of all, I’m actually getting paid to help supervise this group of teens with several other teachers! Saaaweeeet!
Ahh, the Adirondacks in the fall. I took the liberty of Googling images and here’s my fave:
When you think of me this week (as I’m sure you will), imagine me here in this very spot, and try not to miss me too much. Hopefully I won’t freeze my buns off.
Take care, brush your hair, and I’ll see ya next week!
It’s World Teachers’ Day! In honour of this day devoted to teachers, I want to quickly mention a few of the teachers who inspired me to enter the most rewarding profession in the world.
Well, you’re in luck! That is, of course, if you live in the Ottawa area. I’m participating in my first author panel! Check this out!
Connecticut…the state where there’s a gazebo in every town. Like, EVERY town. I stopped taking pictures after the fifth one I spotted. Now, you may be wondering what a Canuck like me was doing in a place like Connecticut. That’s an excellent question and I’m glad you asked. Firstly, to visit Washington Depot–the town that inspired Stars Hollow, the setting for my beloved Gilmore Girls.
Hey, hey! You, you! Get into myyyy car! 😀
Did you hear that I got a new car? Didja? Have I mentioned it enough yet? Well, my new baby and I have only been together for six days now, but I can’t imagine my life without him. Ladies and gents, I introduce you to….
Bubba Gump, my brand-spankin’-new 2016 Subaru Forester!
Because she has laryngitis and she’s en route to Ottawa to renew her passport and buy more medicine and get an enormous cheque from the bank to pay for the new car she bought even though she doesn’t officially have a long-term teaching gig yet for the new school year.
Oh, and I have this note so I’m totally allowed to ditch:
I promise to share pics of my car baby (a steel-grey 2016 Subaru Forester named Bubba Gump) when I return next week! Tootles, my loves!
Hello, my friends! As promised, here are some of the pics from my many adventures during MOAR Tour, 2016! It was a much-needed retreat with my girlfriends that I’ll never forget. 🙂
