Thank You!!

Thank you to Amy from The Resource(ful) Room for the Versatile Blogger Award! It's my first blogging award--how fun! :o)


I feel so honored to have my blog recognized! It's nice to know that other teachers are enjoying (and hopefully using) some of the tips, crafts, etc. I post on here. Thank you, Amy, for making my day!!

Here are the rules of the award:
1. Thank the person who presented the award to you and link back to them. (check!)

2.  Tell seven things about yourself.
1.) My husband and I welcomed our precious baby, Nolan, into the world on December 21, 2011. Sleep deprivation is setting in, and I'm getting accustomed to hanging out on the couch watching soaps and talk shows and napping all day. Since I've been home on maternity leave, I've been posting a little more regularly, but I haven't had any freebies or teaching activities really. Just silly, fun posts for now!

2.) I have two very spoiled cats, Olive & Pickles, and two very spoiled guinea pigs, Lola & Penelope.

3.) This is my fifth year teaching kindergarten, and I started out the year in a new elementary building in my district. This building is smaller (only 2 classes per grade level), and I'm loving it!

4.) My favorite TV show is The Vampire Diaries. I know, I know, it's totally a teenage drama show, but I just can't get enough of Elena, Stefan, & Damon!

5.) I'm kind of a tea addict lately. I couldn't have my favorites while I was pregnant, and I went into withdrawal. I'm definitely making up for it now though--I think I had 4 mugs yesterday! My current favorite is Celestial Seasonings decaf white tea...mmm!

6.) I love to bake...cookies, cakes, cupcakes, you name it!

7.) I hate collections--they can looks so cluttered and messy, but I can't help but collect willow tree angels. There's just something about the faceless figures that is so beautiful. I've run out of shelves and bookcase space to display them on, so I've been in search of some nice wall shelves to hang in my livingroom.
That was a lot more difficult than I thought it would be!

3. Pass this on to 15 newly discovered blogs and let them know they've received the award.
I don't know if I have 15 newly discovered blogs, but here are the newest additions to my google reader in the past couple weeks...
