I love me some spirit week.
The awkward outfits, the sense of community, the laughs - it's all golden.
I don't know if it's "cool" that I participate, or totally lame, but nonetheless I do it.
The kids seem to crack up & fortunately my colleagues play along as well, making it worth all our whiles!

Monday - "Back in the Day"
...my 90's interpretation 
Think jean-on-jean, scrunchies, metal clippies, and a tshirt tied around the waist
it screams "Clarissa Explains it All," no?

Tuesday - "Tacky Sweater Day"
got this beaut at a local consignment shop and felt a little guilty about thinking it was tacky... the sales girl said how much she "loved it" and how "beautiful" she thought it was
....your thoughts?

At least my mom & Laura agreed with me ;)

Wednesday - "Western Day"
...It's kinda sad that although I'm not a "country" girl I can whip this baby up easy as 1-2-3 without having to purchase anything.  I was asked by a fellow teacher if I had lost a bet when he passed me in the hall.  That made me feel like a million bucks, that's for sure :-\ 

Thursday - "Alter Ego Day"
huge football fan in my spare time.
steelers.  penn state.  
yes yes yes yes yes 

Friday - "Spirit Wear Day" 
It's amazing how many surprising//shocked//unsuspecting looks I got on my way to work for this one...  What's the big deal, anyway?  I thought it was great that I paired these hues together and could honestly be the next "it" fashion blogger.  #jokes  In all honesty by this point in the week, I figured go big, or go home.  (aaaaand chickened out and took off the wig. eh, win some, lose some) 

so there you have it, embarrassment & laughs on me for the week!

Hope your week was full of fun & spirit, too!!
I'm off to chaperone some homecoming - boogie -dancing
...no nutzo outfit for this one
((but I might see quite the get up or two tonight if I'm "lucky"))
have a great rest of your weekend :)

pssssssst: may I remind you there's not much time left to enter the BHB giveaway!?
