So, where have you been all this time?

I just finished student teaching this past Friday, and I'm starting to get things together to begin subbing.  It's so bitter-sweet to be done.  In some ways, I feel as though I have just climbed a mountain, and on the other hand, I know that I will really miss my students. 
I have had a really different student teaching experience than the average student.  First of all, I'm not an undergrad, so that gave me a boost in the right direction from life experience.  The second thing that made my student teaching experience different from most was that I'm pregnant.  That's right!  Jason and I are having our first baby.  That's kind of why I have been so absent from blogging.
I know there are plenty of expecting/mom bloggers who can keep up with their blog, even with being so exhausted all the time (like the lovely Meg!  I don't know how she does it.)  During my first trimester, I would work all day, and go to bed as soon as I finished dinner at 5:30 or 6.  As of this week, I am 19 weeks pregnant, so I'm thrilled to be out of that position and to have more energy!

So that's the update!  Jason and I get to find out on Friday what the gender of the baby is.  We're so excited!

Fill in the blank Friday.

1. My favorite place I've ever traveled to is probably the Rockies of Wyoming or Seattle, WA.

2. Copenhagen, Vienna, or Venice are places I'd love to go someday.

3. I pass the time on a plane (or bus, or car ride or train) by knitting, reading, and thinking.

4. My three must-haves when I travel are minimal.  I toured the country for months at a time with nothing but a ukulele, autoharp, a journal, a few change of clothes, deodorant, and a toothbrush.  They all fit into a tiny messenger bag!

5. My favorite travel companion is my husband.  He never makes me drive unless I want to.

6. The craziest thing that ever happened to me while traveling was meeting my husband.  I played at the coffee shop he runs, and the rest is history.

7. The most exotic food I've ever tried while traveling is an Idaho Spud, among other regional candies and soda!

8. If I could live anywhere else, I'd live in Vermont, Washington, Austria, or Norway.

9. I have been to 38 states total.  My goal is to visit each state before I die. (I only have ten left, including Alaska and Hawaii!)
