Simply Awesome

In all the hubbub of back-to-school week, I simply forgot to choose a winner in The Simply Bar giveaway.

I’m simply apologetic, but can’t wait for someone else to discover the joys of The Simply Bar, and perhaps have it simply save her life stomach, the way one saved mine on Open House night. [As shown above.]I am simply THRILLED that the winner is the simply lovely Debbie @ Accidentally Delish.

Simply predictable in her flavor preferences... :)

I am simply blessed to not only have companies like The Simply Bar send me free products to sample and review, but also simply amazing friends through blogging like Heather…who mail me packages so simply overwhelming in their glory and bounty that I simply had to put everything away and save most of it to simply savor at a later date. [Post on that to come I’m sure…]What could simply not wait to be eaten (due to its simply perishable state of being) was the simply surprising package from Chobani that arrived on my doorstep!I simply expected that when they offered to send me a sample of their new Vanilla Chocolate Chunk, I would simply receive one 16 oz. container…not SIX.

However I have quickly discovered the simply perfect combination that I’ve recreated a number of times now: Vanilla Chocolate Chunk Chobani with Love Grown Cocoa Goodness Granola, Peanut Butter Cheerios, and 34 Degrees Graham Crisps.

With or without a cherry on top. :)

Truth be told, right now I’m simply exhausted.

Teaching is a bit like riding a bike, in that you never really forget how, but it’s also a bit like riding a bike in a triatholon in that it can be simply tiring. It’s not just chasing the ‘simply perfect’ books through library branches around town…

…but the fact that six-year-olds simply wear you out.

I simply need more coffee.

And I’m still not quite ready to give up making my oatmeal on the stove in the morning, which means I simply have to wake up a bit earlier.

Breakfast is simply more delicious when it is not microwaved in the teachers’ lounge.

Although some days I simply run out of time and it is simply NOT this thick...

So I simply MUST go to bed (right after I cut out 30+ head shapes in various skin tones for an art project tomorrow).

Thus, I’m keeping it simply short (like my my student’s attention spans) and simply sweet (like their immediate unconditional love).[This last image was simply my attempt at continuing my Friday summer series of Things That Are (Simply) Awesome as I planned. I simply had to at least try…]
