Oh NO!

So Brad doesn't think a LIVE tree is necessary. But I, on the other said,
So to a tree farm we went after a nice hunting morning with Julie in Lehi.
We got a little tree and decorated it so nicely.
Brad said since I brought in the live tree factor, he could bring in the real candy canes on the tree factor, then I said okay. I didn't think I would like white cords...but I do (or I like them enough not to return them and go get green ones). 

It's going to be my first Christmas away from home, so I thought I could have a tree at my house to smell, since Brad's mom doesn't really have a live tree...nor the smell I am used to.
Brad also insisted upon me getting my own stocking, Brad's mom thought I should use Mike's.
Brad said, "She is not an appendage, Mom."
Also, I think it bad luck to not have your own stocking.
My skin is improving, still crazy town though.
But lighting up.

Imagine bloody scabs, and bloody tights, and bloody garments.
That's what my life is right now. 
A scab will accidentally get touched, then my tights will accidentally be soaked with blood.

It's finals week for Brad.
It's Christmas Around the World for me at school.
Today I taught them that England is where Christmas Cards originated from.
Tomorrow I am teaching them about how poinsetta's originated from Mexico.

Its gonna be an awesome week.

The symptoms. VDA

Well it started two weeks ago with a headache.....then it turned into a dagger in my throat, which apparently they call strep throat. I waited from Friday until Tuesday to go to the doctor. Took the antibiotics as I was told. Then I like to say I slept all day crying every time I had to swallow Nyquil to fall back to sleep on Wednesday. Are you supposed to take Nyquil during the day...well I did, got a sub, and Wednesday night when I still wasn't better I got a shot. Right in the butt. I felt better within four hours, first time I slept through the night without getting up to drink nyquil every four hours. I thought I was in paradise!!! I was! My throat went from bleeding and throbbing to scabbed...or so it felt.

I thought it was paradise. . . Then around Sunday I started seeing bumps on my face, I continually told Brad.. "Look at the bumps! Do you see them?" He said, " I can hardly tell, don't worry, you are beautiful." Typical answer.

Then they were spreading...these bumps. Brad kept saying I looked fine...
I said to him about on Tuesday, "I don't care how I look!!! I just want you to acknowledge that they exist!"

Viewer Discretion advised...due to Brittany half dressed and some disgustingness ahead. 
The bumps...those bumps...they own me now.

Brad just kept down playing it, in order to keep me confident.

Now I am more than confident with myself.

I currently am sporting the rash as if it is the new scarf, or the new boots.
 Can you guess what part of my body this is??
It doesn't really matter, since every body part looks like this.

The rash is just doing great residing from head to toe.

 I don't even know what smooth skin looks like anymore, or feels like. 
I have gone through 3 bottles of Cortizone, one pack of Benadryl and lots of Epsom salt baths.

And I have family pictures to look forward to after Thanksgiving, not only will I be bloated, but covered in a million small pox. Good thing we are wearing black and I am wearing a high necked white button up...

Now its off to Standrod for Thanksgiving...stay tuned for that wonderful disaster of food, children, and spreading of diseases.

(you know because people are sick...duh)

Went for a little visit..

It was Echo's state volleyball. In between the games we went to the driving range. Thanks Aaron for buying all the balls, and thanks old man with nice golfing shoes for giving us your left over balls.
It was a beautiful fall day and Brad just swung away. Golfing is like baseball. Thats all I know about it.

I like his wash in his jeans right here, and his knee placement. Nice Bradley.

 So graceful. I look like a dying Indian when I swing.

And the finale. Perfect 80000 million yarder. Nice.

Chandler was more of the tomahawk. 

Brooke did her motherly her sister.

Okay, so I was teaching Ethan how to golf....and he said, "Why are you teaching me, you aren't very good?" Then I said, "I know, I'll leave."
Ethan made me promise not to give him any tips, the tips only made him worse.
Aaron just spoke Canadian the whole time. He doesn't speak much English.
He took over teaching Ethan. Ethan speaks that language. 

Ethan is a fine lookin gent. He is tall, lean and nice. Hope the girls are nice to him.

Landon kept asking Brad, so what did I do wrong there...
Brad would say, "I don't know."
Then I would say, "Well at least say something so you sound smart."
He is the only one who truly knows golf (Aaron too, but you know he doesn't speak much English) but yet he offered little to no advice due to being too humble thinking his advice wasn't valuable. 

Tiera was quite cute out on that fall day and I love her shoes. Like slippers, thats my thing. She is married to Landon if you forgot.
I'm glad my husband will always look young, I don't want to be married to an 80 year old, when he really is only 40. If that made made sense to me, in my head.

I can't tell if this picture is creepy or cute. My left eye is Asian.

We found a worm and Faith quickly named it Echo. Here I am pretending to eat the worm. Let's take a closer look.
Her worry and concern.

The close up. The worm is struggling for its life, it has only had close encounters with beaks, never with glossed lips and tongues. 
Also check out the cute Zebra pink pants I just got her at Gap, I go in to shop for dress pants and I come out with zebra pants. So typical of me.

Oh I forgot about Echo and volleyball.
Here she is facing the net wiping her brow. So tiring know Echo is like 6'5''. And she had about 4 blocks in a row, it was exciting.

This image is speed walk Echo.
She is just zooming through time with her bootie. you know she has always had a bootie like that, so cute, every since she was a wee babe. 

Well they lost at state, but we had a fun time.

We payed 20 dollars to watch her game, but there were free mini chocolate milk (Idaho Dairy hosts sports) so Brad said, "I paid 20 bucks for this, I'm taking 5 milks."
7000 calories later, we were happy.

A whole new world...

Halloween happened...
in my house it happened a week early. You see we dressed up as a couple. I would say Latino couple, but I think we were going for more of the Mexican side of things.

I think we succeeded in our feat.
Is my belly hanging out from the bottom a little? 
Yes yes it is.
And do I have a unibrow?? Yes, yes I do.
Did UP characters win best costume??
Did Jamie play her part perfectly?
Yes. She was casting spells on me all night.

The whole party was a success.
We went up to Zermatt to our friend's parent's timeshare and had a grand ole time.

And as for my new world...
They are doing well. Chelsea borrowed me her attire. I didn't want to dress up all fancy. Then the kids wouldn't take me seriously, they wouldn't listen to me when I yelled. 
JK I don't yell.
I may raise my voice sometimes?? Nah...probably not :)

 They are doing quite well :)

At what point..

A few times I have gone to post on my blog, but then I get scared to look at it. Scared that I haven't posted for so long. . . and all my friends stopped being my online friends. But so much as happened. I have participated in several weddings...parties....and 5 year old catastrophes.  You see there are all these forms you have to fill out in school. And sometimes I just sigh and wish I had a personal form filler outter.

And we have those Trafalga passes, and sometimes we drive to Lehi and play laser tag. Laser tag with people who take it way more seriously than I do. We walked out and I looked at the score board. I said, "AWESOME!!! I GOT THIRTEENTH!!!"

Then Brad said, "Brit, there was only 13 people in there."

Then I said, .. nothing because it made sense because my alias name was Mozart and his was Iron Man. Clearly this is why I lost. Mozart never killed anyone. Never. Iron Man never left anyone alive.

I found out that the girl who followed me around and shot me every time my vest clicked back on after the time she had just shot me before....won.

Clearly she won because she was 12 and I felt sorry for I let her shoot me.

We had this pumpkin carving party, after going to La Jolla Groves. With Heather and Kevin.
Heather carved MYERS for their last name, and Kevin made an attempt at the Zelda sign. Brad and him had to do the same thing...who knows?
Brad got this new hat after the Rangers made into the world series. 

He also won the best costume award last week at a party, but I'm not sure how much I want to post our offensive costumes?? 

I carved a ghost. But then it didn't look like a ghost so I just pretended it was Yoda.
Clearly it was Yoda. Meant to be Yoda.
Clearly is a great word today.
"MRS CLARK!! I LOVE YOUR TIGHTS!"-little girl in my class
Had to throw that in. Sorry. 
Did you know that Ian and Lad made a movie about Legos....and this was the intro image...YOU TUBE Productions pesents.

Echo made it to state volleyball....we may travel to Declo to see that one.

Hannah is having a girl, Amanda (sis in law) is having a boy. And I am having a....
long pause....
Tricked ya.

But Brad takes the MCAT soon. Then its a whole new phase of life. Teaching is going well. I love my kids. The other day one student said to me, "Wait, you are married?"
-Yes I am very married.
-How many kids do you have?-Student
-None- Mrs. Clark
-Wait, but how can you be married and have no kids???-Student
-You know I didn't think it was possible...but it is.-Mrs. Clark

My students have started this new thing where when I turn my back they all stand up and dance like crazies. Then I turn back around and they sit back down. Its fine because they think they are sneaky and that I don't know...but I do and that is the greatest part. 

On that note, Christmas is coming.

And we love Christmas.

But first Thanksgiving.

I like breaks in school, then my brain gets a break, and forms, and lesson plans :)
Once again, I apologize if I lost your friendship due to my lack of posting.

I guess I forgot to mention..

That those are baby wraps, and you wrap up your baby like this...
And you can find one at
Sorry I'm losing my mind.

I did Natalie's wedding flowers...
that means I made her bouquet and stuff :)

This is my brother holding it...not Natalie, Natalie's arm's aren't that hairy.

Or maybe they are. But I don't think they are :) She is on her honeymoon. I wanna go on another honeymoon. I miss mine. Warm, sunny, and lots of love. (not that there isn't lots of love, but you know you are secluded and full of love without the hussle and bussle.)

I am so busy. School, weddings, flowers, now my other great friend is getting married on Thursday, and there is wedding stuff Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night. I am not doing her flowers though, just being her bridesmaid. So I will be fine!

I asked my dear kindergarteners why they shouldn't do drugs. I received many very serious comments.

"Becuz you will get addicted. Addicted to drugs. Then you will start playing video games, and your family will be sad and tell you to stop."

"Because when you cross the street you won't be able to see cars." (They were combining Pedestrian Safety and Drug kids.)

"Because you can die of cancer."

"My grandpa died of cancer but he didn't do drugs."

"What are drugs?"

"So Mrs. Clark, I have two things to say. First, when is Music?  Second, I don't do drugs."

Then I decided it was time to tell them I loved them, and to remember that when they are offered drugs that Mrs. Clark would be so sad if they ever did them.

"But Mrs. Clark my mom smokes."

"Okay, just don't you ever smoke okay buddy?"-Mrs. C

I love them, and they are so thoughtful and remind me of how I should be, innocent and kind.

Brad is doing well. He got a glock. Finally. He has been dying for one. I am so glad he got one. Now he pretends he is shooting (not with the gun in his hand) at everything. It's humorous. He still searches for cars, guns, and guitars on KSL. I don't think it will ever stop. I realized I don't search for anything online except for books for my kids and games for them to play. And emailing parents. I have 45 kids and 90 parents!!!! Ha! Kinda a lot to figure out.

OH and we bought a car :)
Its nice. And the windows are so tinted that I can't see bikers at night. I did hit a mailbox yesterday. That's a sad story. But I didn't cry, just laughed. Then called Brad saying, "I'm so so sorry." "Are you mad? Are you mad at me?"
"No, well yes a little bugged."-Brad
Now he just jokes about it every chance he gets.
You can imagine the things he says.
He's a sweetheart.

Do you have a baby?

If you have a baby you want one of these. Cuz they are cute, hip, and gorgeous. And Chelsea and I made them. So, if I know you they aren't 25 dollars with 5.00 shipping! They are FREE SHIPPING. And you want one.

You want one now.

Don't waste any time. Just go buy one. You will not be disappointed.

Well I got this new mascara, and I love it. (I'm not wearing it in this photo) It is seriously a revolution. My eyes are still so pop out there by the end of the day. And I need all the help I can get. Kindergarten gives me bags under my eyes. Don't get me wrong. I love them like crazy, but wow, they just know how to make my nerves be gone. Or high...? Or whatever happens to nerves.

Anyway, I am always stuck on one mascara, but Drew Barrymore sold me out. No really she sold Sally and Echo, and then I saw how great it was and bought one myself. Love it. Live by it. And when mascara is your staple make gotta have it last.  

Anyway, I get really excited about the cool brush, and putting this mascara if you are interested in an incredible mascara, get this one. Loreal lash blast volume, or length, or for a few dollars more, both. I got length and swear by it.

Smells like...


It was so nice to get away. Get some old school (that means from my old school) football and friends to visit.

They lost, but Shad played great....
and Ethan stood so good on the sidelines (he is a freshman so doesn't play much on Varsity, but he is the QB for JV, and Shad is the center.)

Lad lost some teeth. Brad asked him how he was eating an apple. He said, "On the side." Then he calmly continued to chew his apple on the side of his mouth. Totally normal for teeth losing peoples.
Hannah came up for her 10th year! HOly Smokes! My five year is next year. Its crazy to think that I am so old, but yet Hannah is older and still feels like she is young.

Halle learned the ways of relaxing in Standrod quite quickly. She didn't mess around.

I said, "Hey Brad let's go check out the garden."
He said, "Okay."
Then we lost each other.
I found some bunnies in the carrots. 
The carrot rows were bigger than my house. Actually three of my houses.
My dad picked me an entire huge box of carrots, and I said, "Well I didn't want a whole row."
Then he said, "Does it look like I gave you a whole row?"
And I said, "No it looks like you did not pick any from this mass of carrots."
Faith lost her bag of M and Ms like eight times in this garden. 
I also watched our kitty catch a mouse and eat it alive.
We left home with our tires saggin due to the weight of veggies.

If you are in need of anything in this category....
cabbage bigger than your body
peppers of many kind
garlic chives
and other random things that you may need...
let me know I will give them to you for free. In any quantity. 
Life size cabbages

Brad found himself here.
Bikes, fourwheelers, puppies, horses, and unlimited steak and scones.

His true home.
Only if we could make a living there. Apparently Standrod has no plans for a med school. 
Stupid I think.

Teaching is going well. Sometimes I wish I was superwoman, but I'm not so I have to go home not having everything done that I wanted to. I'm about ready to hire my own aid so that I can do everything that I want to. But, I'll figure it out and I am so happy doing it! 

Brad is doing well in school. He is shadowing a surgeon, which he loves, volunteering at a clinic, going to school full time, and working part time. Also, somehow he manages to play his guitar non-stop and practice the song he wrote me for my birthday. I love him to death. But you all know that, and I get annoyed when wives tell their blog readers they love their husband ninety million times a day. You know that duh! And if you are single its just like I rub it in your face even more.
But I do love him to death. Today he said to me, "Brit, I love you."
I said, "Yep, I know."
He said, "No really, you are everything to me."
I said, "Yep I know, love u too baby face lover cake."
I wish I was always that confident about stuff....maybe its just today.

OH! He is playin my song right now. I love it. Someday he will let me record him singing it, but probably never. 
"So let's lay in bed all day long, maybe I'll write you another song." 
Just trying to give you a piece of it's literary genius.
