A look at the life of a girl who loves her husband, is obsessed with her puppy dog, and eats way too much fast food.
Who I Follow

Possible reasons for getting called a librarian? This is the 3rd cardigan I wore this week. And my skirt goes down to my knees.

But how cute is the print on this skirt? I got it a few weeks ago from Old Navy!

Not knocking them at all. I loved the comparison. I said “thank you” and walked away.

Better than the kid who called me ugly and then when I whipped my head around he said “nah, I’m just playin…you bad as shit.”

Did I mention that the cops came to our school twice today because one kid pushed a teacher (and he is on parole) and another kid made racial slurs last week that lead to charges being pressed against him?

But I wanted to thank everyone for the input on my gym teacher apparel crisis. You all had such great suggestions. Why didn’t I think of khakis? This is why I love you people.

But I don’t have gym until Friday. Gotta get through tomorrow first. Teach all day. Come home and teach a demo lesson plan for a cyber charter school; long term sub position. (Btw they called me today to set this up, and gave me 0 topics for the lesson plan. Just K-12th grade Special Ed lesson. So I’m doing a 3rd grade Abraham Lincoln something or other. Wish me lots of luck.) And then I have to go babysit until 10pm.

Send all the coffee.

Ohhh and today I caught a kid talking to his friend in class. I could tell he was talking about me, so I forced him to tell me what he said. He put his head down and whispered “I said you look like a librarian.” Achievement unlocked.
My current substitute job was/is scheduled to end on Friday. (2 weeks teaching high school biology at an alternative school) Today they asked me if I would be willing to stay and sub for the gym teacher. (for an undetermined amount of time) 
And like, of course I will because— hi I need money. But what does a gym teacher wear? No I am dead serious, I need to know exactly what I should wear. I asked the secretary and she said “just like nicer pants and sneakers.” nope.gif. You will not catch me in dress pants and sneakers. And I can’t wear any of my yoga pants because holy inappropriate. So does that mean that I have to go buy track suits? Please send outfit suggestions and/or actual clothing to my home. Thank you. 
[I made a funny joke about how “I will only do it if you guys let me have a whistle”… but I wasn’t exactly kidding.]

  • Liz: Did you know that Apple downloaded the U2 album to every iPhone?
  • Myles: Seriously? So it wasn't just me?
  • Liz: No. Every one. I already deleted it.
  • Myles: Oh thank God. I thought I hit something by accident, and I was terrified that you were going to see a $13, stupid ass, U2 album on our statement, and freak out at me. I was just picturing you saying "damn it, Myles--I know you screwed something up. How can you accidentally purchase an entire album." And I was gonna have to say "I swear, I didn't want this!"
  • Liz: #1 I don't talk like that. #2 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Remy is Dog Shaming’s #1 fan!! dogshaming we love you. 

Thanks for sending us all the great stuff, Pascale! (theporkchopadventures) The very first thing we did was search for Skybo (curtncurly) —so famous. 

Remy looks terrified that he is about to be shamed next, but he continues to act like a perfect angel. Is is weird that I want him to do something bad so that I can publicly shame him?  

You’re following dogshaming right??? Brings such joy to my day. 

Remy also did this today.

Fake dog.

I’m really sorry if you follow me on other social media and you have seen these already…but I’m not sorry. Because these are some of my favorite pictures I have ever taken of Remy.

He is just the most amazing dog.

Homemade chicken noodle and zinnias from the garden. I feel like Martha Stewart today. 👍

High school bathroom selfies.

This mirror is terrible for getting a good outfit shot! How rude. This skirt goes down to my knees and makes me feel like a librarian. But I had to stand back really far and then crop and I made a weird face.

Whatever, I guess work isn’t all about taking pictures of myself.
