Meet and Greet! Get ready for Teacher Week '13!

I am linking up with 
for Teacher Week '13! I am so excited! If you haven't checked it out, it is a HUGE link up party for every day this week about all sorts of good things!!!  Up for today is 
I'm going to try to think of things that I didn't include in the past posts.. so here it goes!! 

{one} I am a procrastinator. I wait till the very last minute to get things done.  Terrible!! It's the very opposite of what I tell my students NOT TO BE! Ugh.. and I never change (see... me writing this at 5:39 pm on Monday...)

{two} I just bought a house this year! We are busy gardening and getting dirty outside while trying to make it pretty inside!  It is never ending and the "list" keeps growing.

{three} I hate silence.  I always have something on in the background, usually music, and I just feel weird when it's really quiet.  Although, there are those days where I do enjoy a silent car ride home.  

{four} I love birds! I have a hummingbird feeder up and a couple bird feeders and I love to watch them and see what different varieties come around.  

{five} My favorite movies are Dirty Dancing, Pretty Woman, and The Wizard of Oz.  Every time they come on TV I HAVE to watch...

{six} My brother in law is getting married this September and my husband is the Best Man.  The wedding is at the Cape (Cape Cod, MA) and I am excited to get away and spend the weekend by the shore!

{seven} I can wear my hair curly or straight.  It's naturally wavy, so I get the option to choose depending on my mood. Normally, it's straight.  I can get a couple days out of it and I don't have to dry it in the morning.

{eight} I am an only child.  But I grew up with 3 boy cousins around allllll the time, so I played more with G.I. Joes than Barbies.  In fact, I never owned a Barbie.  

{nine} I love to scrapbook! If I had it my way, I would have a room in my house devoted to scrapbooking and lock myself in there for hours.  In reality, I rarely get the time.  A girl can dream, right?

{ten} I am allergic to carrots, celery, and apples.  Bummer, I know.  Carrots and celery I can live without, but I LOVE apples.  I still eat them and deal with an itchy scratchy throat because it's worth it.

So those are my ten.  Short and sweet!! Can't wait to read everyone else's links and get to know everyone better!

See you tomorrow for

P.S.  My Rafflecopter raffle ends tonight at midnight! Enter if you wish!


  1. I am totally with you on the silence thing! I love to have music on in the background, no matter what I'm doing. Even if it's quiet... I need something!
