Hey, hey friends and followers!!! I know I said I was going to post the winners yesterday after the Bachelorette "finale", but here's what went down.... (if you are rolling your eyes at the thought of Bachelorette and not a fan, just skip this next paragraph).
First of all, I didn't realize that last night was not the actual finale. I was waiting for the "most dramatic finale in Bachelorette history" as Chris Harrison always promises and forgot that of course it would be a 4 hour finale that takes place over 2 weeks. Duh!!! What was I thinking? So I sat down on the couch with my laptop and starting watching. I got up to the first Fantasy Suite invitation. Let's stop there for a second - each season I think, there's just no way they will keep the exact same wording on the Fantasy Suite invitation AGAIN! But, shockingly, they DO!! I know it word for word by now and always wonder how they even read it out loud without a smirk or sarcastic comment. We all know what it's going to say and yet somehow they are always *surprised* to read it. So somewhere along my disappointment of the lack of creativity of Chris Harrison, I fell asleep on the couch and woke up a few hours later with a kink in my neck and my laptop still on my lap. I had DVR'd the show so I quickly watched the ending (Poor Des!) and went to bed. Sorry for not posting when I promised.
So here are the winners......
#14 was Melinda and #6 was Roxanne.
I will be emailing you shortly - Congratulations!
Before I end for tonight, I just have to share that I work with some pretty amazing people! For the last two days I have been working with 3 of my fellow first grade teachers on a Math summer project. I can't say I was eager to get back to work (even for a few days), but these ladies made it SO MUCH BETTER!!! We did get a lot of work done, but we also took some much needed sanity breaks. During these breaks we laughed about our husbands, ate some delicious homemade cookies, took a nice lunch break, and watched screaming goats on YouTube singing Whitney Houston (seriously, check it out because it's hilarious)!
I'm a lucky girl! I hope you all have people like this that you work with - because sharing laughs and watching stupid YouTube videos with colleagues really makes our job so much better. =)
