Singles Day


Apparently I spent ‘too much time #shopping’ according to my #Huawei mother phone. Over 3 HOURS. Well, no duh! Silly!

November 11 was #11/11! #SinglesDay in #China and a very big Shopping day. #Shopping around for great #sales is a must! Here are some of my #hauls yesterday!

1. A #JYJ pillow ❤️ (25% off)

3. A meat grinder for #cooking (40% off)
4. A #nut gift set (50% off)
5. Set of Glass Jars for #homedecor (80% off)
Did you go out and #shop? What did you get!?!

#Halloween Haunted House!

Totally awesome haunted house tonight.  So proud of my juniors!  All by themselves, they planned and put the party on. The 3rd and fourth floors had been transformed.  Piles of leaves all through the halls and rooms, scattered chair overturned for the ‘abandoned effect’!  The classrooms were amazing – evil butcher room with the creepy guy chopping bloody stuff; creepy dead bride in her red wedding dress, ghosts everywhere including up in the window ledges – they’d jump from the ceiling to scare people. 😱👻 People hiding under tables or in fabric screens would grab your feet 😂  I loved it!  Such a great job!

#StPatricksDay Blessings!

Happy St. Patricj’s day from #china!  Starting off well! One if the #students was asking a friend to translate what I was teaching them about the holiday.  He calledme ‘Beauty Teacher’. 👸 MADE MY DAY! ❤  I obviously got some #goodluck somewhere today! 🍀

Merry Christmas from China!

Great Christmas Eve! 🎅 Went to breakfast and shopping with mom. Saw totally cute gift ideas!! 😊 Then my friend Harry came by and we made peanut butter and ritz cookies, had delicious dinner, walked the river looking at the lights, saw the fireworks, etc. ❄ Even saw an electrical fire! 😱 Then the lovely cafe owner’s wife gave me a cupcake for Christmas 😍 Even though China doesn’t really celebrate Christmas, lots of locals stopped to wish me Merry Christmas. Then woke up this morning to awesome gifts, delicious breakfast treats from a friend, and a spa day. Tonight I party with some friends here at the foreign housing.  A real wonderful life!

Bad News: no electricity from 8-8 so no meals provided. Which is against my contract but they don’t care. —_—

Good News: I am surrounded by amazing friends, family, and students who I love so much and who love me in reyurn. And these lovely roses were only $1 each 😁 What a blessing!
