The Life of Bon: It's the end of January as we know it let's all say a prayer of thanks.

Thursday, January 30, 2014

It's the end of January as we know it let's all say a prayer of thanks.

I was looking through my camera today and found some pictures that never made it to the blog.  What? Never made it to the blog?!  Now that's a travesty!  Most of them are from December- that month was so freaking crazy with the morning sickness and constant nausea, it was all I could do to wake up in the morning.  I have no idea how I managed to show up anywhere let alone get pictures of as many things as I did.

But here the pictures are.  Magically on my camera.  And I have faint memories of being all those places.  I think?

So here they are.  Some pictures of stuff that happened long, long ago.



^^^A bridal shower for my little sis and bride to be.  Talking about sexy stuff makes her uncomfortable so I made sure to pick out some extra embarrassing gifts.


^^^Our church primary class.  With the beginning of every year the classes move up and so that means we got all new students the first week of January.  We miss these two little buggers, but they make sure we say hi to them every Sunday.  The one on the left often texts us pictures of his origami creations and made his parents invite us over to dinner.  Oh, ten year olds.


^^^I know this picture is really not "blog appropriate".  I mean, it's not cute and it's blurry and the brown background!  Yuck!  But I love it for a lot of reasons.  I love it because of the ridiculous amounts of apples on my little paper plate,  (Hello pregnancy!) for the look that I am giving Greg that says "What?  A picture?  NOW? You devil, you!"  I love it because my fingers look like a pteradactyl's claws and because I have never seen the vein in my neck before and it's awfully scary. But mostly I love it for my blurry, smiling brother trying so hard to get in the picture in the background.  I really like my brother and he's pretty much always smiling.  (Also the fact that he is clearly on his second piece of cake is pretty awesome.)



^^^Ugly sweater Christmas parties with third and fourth period the day before Christmas break.  They read their poetry and we drank hot chocolate and acted like hipster poets. Some took the sweaters more seriously than others, obviously.  Please notice the deep pink v neck in the back left of the first picture.  Priceless!  All pictures of students are taken with their permission and are used on this blog with written consent from parent and student.  Gracias!

That's a wrap!  You folks ready for February yet?  Ah, yah.

  1. February. PLEASE. Because it's always over almost before it starts and then we just have to suffer through March. AND THEN. Sun. I can make it. We can make it.

    Also, that can't be a vein in your neck, can it??? I think it's just a weird shadow from your hair.

  2. Bonnie, I like your blog and congratulate you and your husband to your pregnancy!
    I was wondering for a while already: Are your students okay with you taking their pictures and putting them on your blog? I mean, you are even telling us the name of your school and I believe that is a lot of information on the internet already! I was just wondering...
    Have a great weekend,
    Jasmin

    1. Hi Jasmin! Thanks for your concern. As mentioned in the post, all pictures are used with consent from the students and written permission from students and parents. I also have never said the name of the school where I currently work on my blog.

    2. Thanks for your response. That is good to know :) Do you know if any of your students are following your blog? That would be interesting!

  3. It's only going to be sunshine and rainbows from here on out, right? Right?? Looks like you had a fun and productive month when you could, even though much of it was spent in morning sickness hell!

  8. Hey Bonnie I am a new subscriber & am making my way through your archives. You are a wonderfully talented writer. I'm not reading anything else for fun now that I found you. That indeed is not a vein. Both your jugular vein & artery go down in a semi straight line, not accross allowing for slight differences in anatomy. Just FYI. You will be seeing lots of new veins due to the increase in venous pressure due to pregnancy. Congrats to you & Greg.
