Fess Up Friday


It's Friday, it's Friday... I'm so excited! Oh. Wait. I've got an inclement weather make up day tomorrow. Ugh. Oh well. Only 15 more days of school, and 17 more days of duty and then... SUMMER. Then 2 more weeks and then... MARRIAGE. Eek. Time is flying and crawling at the same time. It's kind of like when I was little and Christmas seemed to take forever to get here, but it's different.
 Oh well, on to the 'fessions. :-)
  • I am in love with a book written for kindergarteners.
Isn't it cute?!?!? But why, you may ask, is this a confession?
Because I don't have children.
  • Along the same lines, I started a book by one of my favorite British authors on my birthday (in March). I still haven't finished it (or the other 2 books I bought with it) because I'm too busy reading books that were written for little kids. See the following:
  • Exhibit A
Exhibit B

And the slighty less embarassing because it has more than 10 pages,
Exhibit C
  • I played Scrabble with Amanda Jo last night. I won. By like, 30 points.
    We're hanging out again on Saturday. I probably should not have bragged about beating her because pride comes before a fall.
    Not sure if this counts as a confession, but I wanted to brag, pride fall or not.
  • I was in charge of bringing the snacks to Amanda's last night, I was really good and brought carrot and celery sticks. Then this morning, I went to the donut store. Oops.
  • I tried to say "phooey' and "poop" at the same time, in reaction to something not fun that had happened. I don't remember why I said it, I just know that when I tried to combine "phooey" and "poop", I got "foop"
    I don't even wanna know what "foop" would look like.
  • I had to edit this post 3 times because I kept forgetting things I needed to put on here, like the "Fess up Button". The last time I had to click the "Edit Post" button, it was because I forgot to add that I had had to edit the post 3 times. Blah
I think that's all I've got for today. I'll add more if something else occurs to me. Have a great weekend everyone! And hug your momma. She deserves it, I know mine does!

I seriously read your post to my husband because he kept asking me what I was laughing at. The Foop... and the books for kindergartners.... oh, man, good stuff this week Allison. I am going to link you up myself because I have no idea why it's not working for you. That's weird.

And if you forget to use the 'fess up friday logo, that's totally okay! I forgot too! Until about six hours after I published my post and I was looking at it going "there's something missing... what is it?"

I'm a little jealous that you and AManda Jo get to hang out in real life. I want to play scrabble with you too!

just ask me any questions you wanna know about me, or just random ones! :):)

Hey! I was shopping for books for my 9-year-old tonight and it occurred to me that you would be the perfect person to ask. Do you recommend those Rick Riordan books for a 9-year-old, and do you have any other series that you think he would like? He has read pretty much all the magic treehouse and A-Z mysteries and the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. I was thinking of getting him Percy Jackson but I haven't read it myself and I don't know if it's age appropriate.

Also~ you must be getting close to your wedding! Hope the plans are all coming together. I've been thinking about you!
