MIA & Lots of Linkies

And no, I am not talking about the singer.

I have been totally MIA lately.  I've been stalking (somewhat), but have been super busy with finishing a unit work sample for evals., grad school work (okay, just grad school...I have done no work), teaching, and hanging with the fam.  My posts will probably continue to be sporadic so apologies in advance.

Oh yeah, I've also been officially obsessed with this little thing you may have heard of...

Oh my gosh.  I am obsessed.  The hubby thought I would finish it in a week and it's taken me longer, only because I am so darn tired when I get home and read. 

There are lots of linky parties I'm going to hook up with so please forgive this extra long post!

First up, Jeannie over at Kindergarten Lifestyle is having a "You Know You're a Teacher When..." Linky
Disclaimer:  I'm sure some of these are probably repeats so sorry in advance :)

Next linky:  Chrissy at Buzzing with Ms. B is hosting a linky about how you met your honey.

The hubby and I actually met in high school.  We had geometry together in 9th grade.  I was new to the school (relatively...I went to a school for the arts for middle school) so I felt super awkward all the time (who doesn't?!).  Anyways, I always thought he was super cute.  One time in class, a kid was "talking back" to the teacher and the hubby laughed.  Our teacher told him to "wipe that sh**y grin off his face."  I of course thought the whole thing was pretty funny, because our teacher cussed!  Later, I found out it didn't bother the hubby one little bit because it got me to notice him (awww).  Of course, I'd had my eye on him pretty much all year.  One day we actually talked after school while he was waiting on his dad to pick him up.  Normally he was a bus rider, so I jumped on the opportunity to talk to him.  Of course, right as we started talking, his dad pulled up.  I honestly didn't think that much of our convo, I was just trying to be my cheerful self (I was a cheerleader after all...).  We somehow got each other's AIM SN's (that would be AOL instant messenger screen name for all of you non 90s peeps).  I'm pretty sure I probably got his by my stalking ways.  We started talking online a lot and I started hanging with his crew at lunch.  Finally, on the last day of school (after school) he asked me!  He was scared I would say no!  We've been together pretty much ever since!  Here's some pics for your enjoyment :)

Our first picture together!

I hope you head over and link up!  I can't wait to read everyone's!

There was more, but that's enough for tonight.  I think the hubby will kill me if I'm on the computer any longer!

Hope you join the parties :)

Great pictures! Loved the Hunger Games trilogy too. Now I'm looking forward to the movie, although it won't be as good of course.

Wow, this post is jam packed with good stuff. :)

I love your story. I can't believe you have been together since 9th grade! I love that first pic.

Oh and I am dying to read Hunger Games. It has been on my nightstand for months. Like you, I am just too tired by the end of the day, so there it sits. I'm going to try tonight because way too many people have raved about it!
