Is It Christmas Morning?!

Thank you, Heather's Heart, for being my first (and only) follower... so far!  I was a little nervous to look at my blog because I feared seeing the big "0 FOLLOWERS"... but, you made it feel like Christmas morning!  :)

Heather's blog is super cute and the first thing I saw was a "Hug your Heart" jar (which she found on Teaching Maddenness).  SO CUTE.  I have about a gazillion things on my to-do list that aren't getting done... and now I'm going to have to add one more!  There are tons of super cute ideas floating all over blogland and Pinterest and I'm dying to try all of them!  I'm really trying to tap into my creative mind to make something super cute and original for my classroom... but I'm just all out of creative juices.

On a different note, here's a little about me... just to "introduce" myself to my followers follower. :)

I've been teaching for seven years in the same charter school.  It's definitely not my first pick of places to be teaching and, at times, I don't love it.  But, then I think about all of the kids that I get to help and love and it makes my workplace not-so-bad.

I'm married to my perfect match - Dave.  We went to high school together but only really knew of each other.  During college, I ran into him again at a bar and the rest is history!  We've been married for almost 4 years.

I LOVE my dog, Tobey.  He is my world!.  He's a Shiba Inu.. which is a funny, interesting breed.  He loves to yodel and shriek (Listen.. that's not Tobey but he definitely sounds like that).  He really only makes those noises at the vet or when he's getting a bath.  Other times, he's so loving, sweet, and perfect!  I love having the summers off with him but literally cry when I have to go back to work in August (hah, imagine how I'll be when I have kids!).

Time to get ready for a big day! I'm heading out to Lakeshore Learning today and I'm OVERLY overwhelmed.  It feels like it's been an eternity since I've been in my classroom and I'm just not sure what I need.  I'll probably walk out of there spending $200 (that I don't have) on things that I don't need.  

Thanks for reading!  Tomorrow I'll show you what I got from Lakeshore!  :)

New Blogger - Need Followers! Ah!

Hi blogger friends!  I feel like I know all of you (since I've been stalking you for over a year!).  I tried starting a blog last summer but it was more for the parents and students.  After a couple of months of endless posts, NO ONE FOLLOWED ME!  I don't even know if anyone viewed the blog!

I'm a little self-conscious about starting up another blog.  This one isn't for my classroom.. it's for me to *hopefully* connect with some fabulous teachers/bloggers.  I'm envious of their wit, creativity, and fun linky parties.  I want to be in the cool crowd!!

If you happened to accidentally stumble on this blog, please don't leave without following me.  Please?!  I promise I'll do my best to learn how to be a super blogger!  And.. I plan on offering up some cute freebies.. soon!  I'm not against a little bribery! ;)

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
