Happy Friday!

It's gloomy outside and about to rain, but I don't mind because it's Happy Friday!

A few things are making me happy today:
  1. I have new blog followers, yay! And to those of you who have added me because of giveaways past, thanks for sticking around. :D
  2. I ordered Benefit's confessions of a concealaholic kit and it arrived today. I can't wait to try it out -- I have some serious under eye circles that regular concealer doesn't do much to camouflage -- here's hoping this will!
  3. I am finally beginning to learn my students' names -- all 200 or so of them. I can't tell you how important this is -- they get severely peeved if you get their name wrong, and it's awesome to see their little faces break into a smile when you finally get it right.
But the big reason why I'm happy today is because it's FRIDAY. Which means I can SLEEP IN tomorrow. The word "yay" doesn't even begin to encompass my excitement over this fact.

Here are my answers to Lauren's fill in the blank for this week...

1.   The strangest thing I've ever eaten is  alligator meat. As you can expect, it tastes like chicken (why does everything taste like chicken?!).

2.  I wouldn't be caught dead   in a bikini right now -- I need to get in shape, the quicker the better, so that I can flaunt that bikini bod next summer.

3.  When I am 75 I will....  hopefully have a few published books under my belt, a lifetime's worth of teaching experience, and most importantly, a lifetime's worth of love, family, and joy.

4.  If I had to be named after a place I would want to be named   Florence, or to make it even more exotic, Firenze, like the Italians call it. I just think it's a pretty name.

5.  My name is  Ana Cristina Simon de Gonzalez. But you can call me Annie. ;)

6.  My all time favorite photo is  the first photo that Ricky and I ever took officially as a couple -- it was at a work party, and we are both wearing ear-to-ear grins. I need to post it on here someday -- right now it's sitting on my desk at work.

7.  If I could afford it I would  have a maid to cook my meals, clean my house, and wash my laundry. All the silly chores that take up so much time and make me so annoyed. This would give me more play time, which would be nice. (Ah, to be rich...)

yes, yes, of course you would talk about sleeping in! i went to bed at about 12:30 last night and woke up at 6:30 this morning, and i'm not happy about it; that's too early even for me!

also, speaking of you getting something about confessions, you still have to start the confessions of a shopaholic series so we can discuss!

i hope you have a good weekend, and you WILL receive a long overdue email!
