I just joined the iPod world a few months ago with a tiny iPod Nano, but I let my students use it when I take them to the fitness room twice a week, so I keep only middle school appropriate music on there. I'd love to win an iPod Touch for myself! You can have a chance to win too, by stopping by The Penny Hoarder's blog and entering! It's a simple Rafflecopter giveaway, which I love!

I just opened an e-mail from the day spa by my house and saw an advertisement for this new gelcolor by Opi nail polish.. I had the Light Concept Nails done there for my wedding, and kept them on for a little while after, but at $50 every two weeks to maintain them, it was too expensive. I love having polished nails, but for some reason, regular polish NEVER stays on my nails! Any time I've had nail polish put directly on my real nails, it's smudged before I leave the nail salon. I have been hesitant about getting the shellac because I heard it can damage your nails, so this seems like a great alternative! The price is awesome too! Only $25! Have you tried it yet?
**Disclosure--I didn't receive anything for this post. I am just curious to know if anyone has used gelcolor by Opi.**
I haven't been here since the summer, and a lot has changed. You all know my dad passed away in April, and that was rough. It still is. He was one of my best friends, and I still find myself wanting to pick up the phone to call him. In September, I started teaching middle school, all subjects. For the past five years, I've taught high school English, so it's been a huge change for me. I love my students, and teaching is something I don't think I'll ever get tired of. In December, almost 8 months to the day after losing my dad, my grandfather passed away. It was just awful going back to the same funeral home, the same church, and burying him right next to my dad. It was like losing my dad all over again. I think I'm finally ready to come back to blogging, and hope to be updating regularly again from now on.
