Sunshine Award!

So, I woke up today to an early Christmas present...a sinus infection.  Despite my misery, I was able to squeeze in some last minute fun at my brother's fire house on LI and took my kids to the beach where I worked every summer during college.

I was so excited to share my pictures that I got right on my family blog to post pictures, or at least I thought I did.  Turns out in my sinus stupor, I actually blogged about it on here instead of on my family site: Simply The Family. 

It wasn't until we were on our way home that I realized the mistake, but I decided to just leave it.  So I hope you enjoy a random taste of my "non teacher" life. :)

We finally arrived home at 11pm.  Yup, after my 6 hour drive(although hubby actually drove), here I am on my blog instead of resting and getting rid of this infection.
Guess what I found when I checked my email?   This:
I received my first ever blog award!
