I got tagged to answer eleven questions by Janet at This Confetti Life. I won't tag anyone, since she tagged everyone I'd tag. But I will still play along!
1. What is your favorite type of cheese?
Brie cheese, hands down. So creamy and delicious. I even love brie on a burger; my favorite burger is from The Republic in Minneapolis, and it's got brie cheese and red onion marmalade. Yum!
2. What are you excited about?
First, I'm excited for school to be over. We have five more class days and then three days of finals. I can't wait to be done with grading! I do plan on doing some curriculum work over the summer to rework a bit/prepare for next year/make next year easier for me. But I am ready for a break.
Second, I am super excited for meeting our baby. We have been taking childbirth education classes at the hospital, and I see my doctor every other week. Starting in June, I'll see her every week. I'm 33.5 weeks now, and it's hard to believe I'll have a little one in just two months. So much to prepare.
Oh, that leads me to a before first: I'm excited for my baby shower this upcoming Sunday. A lot of gals here at school (both other teachers and faculty wives) are planning this for me. Should be fun!
3. How did you celebrate your last birthday?
I barely even remember celebrating my last birthday. I think I found out I was pregnant just a few days after, so that was a post-celebration. My birthday fell on parent/teacher conference weekend and wasn't too relaxing. Matt and I went to a movie (Gravity, I believe), and we had some frozen yogurt at one of those mix-in froyo places. Nothing to write home about; I was so busy with grad school, teaching, and coaching volleyball.
4. What is on your bedside table?
A lamp, lots of books (Harry Potter book 4, a genetics book, a kindle, and several baby books), chapstick, a water bottle, and some kleenex.
5. What do you order from the movie theater concession stand?
Usually, we don't get anything. Sometimes, we'll get some popcorn or some candy. Instead, we usually go to dinner right before/after a movie and thus don't get anything.
6. Do you have a garden? What’s growing?
We are hoping to garden this summer! Nothing but hostas are growing right now in our wee little yard. I want to plant some morning glories, some tomatoes, and maybe a few other flowers. We're hoping to do that next weekend when we get a little time.
7. Any summer plans?
Baby! I'm pretty sure that will dictate everything else we do for the summer. My parents are visiting for at least a week this summer, and I'm excited to show them around. Previous visits have been one-day or centered around our wedding, with not much time for sight-seeing.
8. Which TV couple(s) are you rooting for?
I still wish I could rewrite the ending to How I Met Your Mother, because I absolutely adored the mother. I haven't been watching much TV other than Property Brothers and other HGTV shows due to the busy nature of school these days.
9. What’s the last thing you bought?
Groceries, for sure. Non-grocery items? I bought a new black tank top to fit my burgeoning belly so that I am appropriate at school.
10. What’s one thing you are passionate about?
Teaching science well!
11. What are you grateful for this week?
I am grateful for the health of my baby, my relative health, the awesome sewing machines at school, leaves starting to come out on trees, Lucy kitty, and Matt. Life may be busy, but it is also good.
