The ABC's of me


Wow.  It's Friday already!  I don't know where the week went, but I spent it neglecting my dear little blog.  So sorry everyone!  I'm still getting used to blogging while working full time again.  We just finished our first full week of school, and it went really well, but that doesn't mean that I'm not looking forward to having Monday and Tuesday off for Rosh Hashanah.  Seriously, when do I do laundry during the school year?

So with all of that said, I thought I'd cheat a little today and repost something from my old blog that a lot of you probably never read before.  And for the ones who have, thanks so much for sticking around.  I love you guys!

It's an old meme and I've updated whatever has changed since last year (which isn't a lot).  And I promise to be back with as much fabulous original material that I can come up with next week.  Have a good weekend everyone!

PS- Thank you all so much for your amazing comments on my Priced Out of Brooklyn post.  It's been so much fun reading them all week, and I feel like we've got a great conversation going!   Please consider stopping by to say something if you haven't already! xo
