It's been too long... What I'm Loving Wednesday

Sorry it's been a while Jamie!

Friends, Family, and Followers,

It has been so long since I sat down and took some time to write.  There are a million reasons why I haven't blogged in a while but the long and the short of it is that I have dealing with an old computer and a jam packed calendar.  I have missed blogging and the time it allowed me to reflect on my life and things I love most.

There is no better way to get back in the swing of things than to write about what I am LOVING today....

If you did not know, I am a big football fan.  I enjoy attending games and tailgating with family and friends.  This season, I have seen my Fresno State Bulldogs lose to Cal at Candlestick Park and attended a few Raider games with my lovely friend Cristina.  The Coach, Cristina's boyfriend, has a few tickets to each game and I am always happy to go.  Cristina and I tailgate - AKA sit on the trunk of my car, drink cheap beer, and eat appetizers.  Last game we met up with some friends....
Unfortunately, the game did not turn out the way we wanted but there is always next Sunday.  RAIDERS!!!

Though Halloween is not my favorite holiday, as a teacher I have to put on a happy face and embrace the chaos all in the name of the children.  This year, one of the parents at the school offered to make me a costume!  She said, "Ms. Graham, I would love to make you a costume.  I see you as a fairy.  Very girly and very pink."  HAHA!  She hit the nail on the head... I am very girly and I LOVE pink.  The Phantom of the Opera and a fairy in training...I was missing my wings.

Next, I LOVE that Modern Family is back on TV.  I think this is one of the best shows on TV and if you haven't watched you should start NOW.  Love, love, love....

As the weather is turning cold and the nights are growing longer I am beginning to revisit my love affair with tea and all things related.  Tea pots.....tea cups....and nightly tea time.  I remember when I was growing up my parents would have tea almost every night.  My dad would fix my mom a cup of Good Earth and they would enjoy their tea as they drifted off to sleep in front of the TV.  I guess having tea and those little sugar cookies just reminds me of simpler times.  Just tonight, I spoke with my mom and aunt to see if either of them had any tea cups that they could send my way.  I am pleased to report that I will have an abundance of little tea cups and saucers to bring home and call my own.  I know it is dorky but I am very excited.  I am fairly certain that Miss V will be excited too.  I will make sure to have them for our sleepover next week.  :-)

It is time for me to get to bed but I am happy to be back.  I am happy to share my comings and goings with my family, followers, and friends.

  1. Nothing I love more than a cup of tea to end my night!!! Can't wait so happy you are back in the blogosphere.
