wpid-wp-1408326424519.jpegthen today we dropped her off at college 😥 here’s my mom testing out tori’s new bed in her dorm. she said it was actually pretty comfy lol

wpid-wp-1408326416731.jpegapparently tori’s RA loves pokemon, because these are the signs she made for the girls’ doors, lol

wpid-wp-1408326410147.jpegi’ve been feeling pretty good about myself lately. at the school where i teach, they make us have a photo shoot every so often. the last two or three i did were hideous, and i was determined to make this one cute for once. the theme was “back to school, nerd/geek/dork/etc.” here’s me on the way to work with curly pigtails and glasses. my smurf shirt says, “geek is the new chic,” lol. once they “release” the ones we took, i will for sure share them here. they were pretty fun to take!

wpid-wp-1408326438579.jpegparent orientation was the same day, and although many of my fellow teachers told me that my hair was cute, and to keep it that way, i decided to change into a more professional look, lol

wpid-wp-1408326455167.jpegone of the dads asked if i was going to be teaching the kids spanish…ugh! i’m asian people!!

and finally…the other day at target i found a really cute dress at a really great clearance price. the only problem…it was a size smaller than i usually wear. today, i went to a baby shower and decided to try it on…

wpid-wp-1408326397065.jpegblack is slimming, but i am 12 pounds down now, and still going strong! i had lunch with a friend the other day that i hadn’t seen in a while and she said that even my neck looks smaller. what?! lol. at least it’s a compliment i guess. and tori’s best friend said my arms look smaller too. love it when other people notice my progress. makes me feel awesome!
