Wednesday Night Randomness

If you are looking for a great book to read the book my book club read for January was fabulous!

Here's the description of the story from Amazon: 

After losing her high-octane job as an entertainment blogger, Noelle Hancock was lost. About to turn twenty-nine, she'd spent her career writing about celebrities' lives and had forgotten how to live her own. Unemployed and full of self-doubt, she had no idea what she wanted out of life. She feared change—in fact, she feared almost everything. Once confident and ambitious, she had become crippled by anxiety, lacking the courage required even to attend a dinner party—until inspiration struck one day in the form of a quote on a chalkboard in a coffee shop:
"Do one thing every day that scares you." ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Painfully timid as a child, Eleanor Roosevelt dedicated herself to facing her fears, a commitment that shaped the rest of her life. With Eleanor as her guide, Noelle spends the months leading up to her thirtieth birthday pursuing a "Year of Fear." From shark diving to fighter pilot lessons, from tap dancing and stand-up comedy to confronting old boyfriends, her hilarious and harrowing adventures teach her about who she is, and what she can become—lessons she makes vital for all of us.

It was such a great beginning of the year story! 
It truly made me think about the things in my life that scares me. 
Such good food for thought! 

My friend Liz told me about the coolest game to play on my iPad 
and now I am TOTALLY addicted to it! 
It's called W.E.L.D.E.R.
If you like word games like Scrabble and Words with Friends you will love it! 

Listening to:  
My kids say the craziest things............and so do I! 
This past week alone I've heard or said the following in my classroom:

-We do not do the chicken dance in GT! 
{Yep. Said by me.}

-I ate my way through the holidays! 
{Said by one of the funniest 6 year olds ever.}

-My mom likes to toot.....a lot. And everyone laughs.....except my dad. 
{Said by one of my 3rd grade boys. 
I am sure his mom would LOVE knowing he was telling that to people!}

Super strong and super long lasting. 
My favorite is The Market. 

What are you reading, playing, listening to, and/or smelling?
