Shout Outs and Birthday Shenanigans

  I just want to take a minute to give a shout out to all my readers and to everyone who has approached me in the last week that reads the blog. I am always flattered to hear that people from around the world read this blog and I am so happy to hear that I have helped so many. Special shout out to Stephanie, who approached me at Maya Island in Abu Dhabi last Friday and had so many lovely things to say. 
    School has started and it is not going so well. We are missing teachers, so the teachers that are here are overloaded. The last two years I taught 18 hours a week and now I have been bumped up to 24, I will be teaching three sections of grade 8 Science and one section of grade 7 Science. Hopefully, we will get another science teacher at our school and then we each can teach a grade. 

This past weekend I celebrated my birthday in Abu Dhabi and had an amazing time. 

  One of my coworkers husband is an artist and they know that I love art, so they gave me this piece for my birthday. 

    I had this delicious cake from Cold Stone, peanut butter and chocolate are my favorite combination.

  Went out on Thursday night to Le Royal Meridien in Abu Dhabi, the skirt I am wearing is made by the same lady that made the dress I wore to the wedding a few weeks ago, she is in Montreal. I bought this material in Tanzania. 

Friday took us to Al Maya Island.

This lovely bathing suit comes curtosy of rue107.

Thanks to all who came out! 35 is going to be a wonderful year!
