Regency 110

These lovely ladies are my roommates Erika, LaChelle, and BJ.
And I am feeling the love for them today so they are getting a whole Blogpost dedicated to them.

She loves her niece...
... and she loves her sports.
Erika is from Maryland, but she wants to be from the South and she does a really convincing Southern accent. Also, her dad is in the military so she lived in Germany for (I think) two years. She is so fun and so nice and she is my braid-slave. Everyday I look forward to seeing her, partially because she is funny in the mornings, but also because she always makes me smile. She's a gem and I love her.
Us as Napoleon and Deb.
This girl is CRAZY!
With her cousin Kathryn (she's pretty cool)
LaChelle lives her life to the fullest. She is constantly doing crazy, intense stuff... she is really brave. LaChelle is a fitness fanatic. She is a Nutrition and Wellness major and she works as a Zumba instructor. She is always going, just thinking about it makes me tired. We are really different and if she hadn't been my roommate I don't know that we would ever have been friends, but I am so glad we are. She is so goofy and silly and we laugh so hard at the dumbest things. She makes me do things I wouldn't normally do and I love her for that.

or as we know her
Ain't she a beaut?
Just being awesome in the Philippines.
Because she just feeds tigers like it's no big deal.
BJ is seriously one of the most interesting people I've ever met. She grew up in Korea, her parents currently live in the Philippines, but she really loves Spanish culture. I don't think I've ever seen her eat an actual meal. Instead she eats weird snacks in little bits. Like... she eats salsa (just salsa, by the spoonful), then leaves, comes back and eats brownie mix (just the mix, by the spoonful), then leaves, comes back and eats jalapeƱos.... and so it goes. She can be so calm and collected and at other times she is wild and crazy. Originally our relationship was more casual and fun, but as we spend more time together and talk more the closer we get. Hopefully that will keep being the case. She is just the coolest and she just got her mission call to Ukraine! Much more exotic than Riverside, California :)

We have two other roommates, Jessica and Krystal, and they are super cool too. I haven't known them long and I haven't spent much time with them, but hopefully we'll be closer someday. One thing I must say about these two is that they think I'm hilarious. Which is gratifying, but also makes me awkward (I don't take compliments well). They are so nice though and really seem like cool people, so I'm hoping to get to know them better.

Tattoo Tuesday complete with Martinelli's shots.
Anyway I love my roommates! They are special snowflakes and I love them like I love Disney (which is so much).

Cupids Shooty Things

This is a conversation I had with one of my Kindergarteners today.

Him: You know that baby, that wears a diaper and flies around?
Me: Cupid?
Him: Yeah! And you know how he has those... um... you know... shooty things?
Me: A bow and arrow?
Him: Yeah! And you know how if he hits you you... well you feel... I mean you...
Me: Fall in love?
Him: Yeah! ...*sigh* I wish that would happen to me.

...and it totally made my Valentine's Day!
