One Lovely Blog Award

I am so excited!!!  I recently received an email from Sarah at Shine on in First Grade for the One Lovely Blog Award!!  She wrote the sweetest note and it just made my day!

I started blogging just over a year ago.  I enjoyed it but didn't make it a priority.  I used it a few times during the school year, to reflect and share the things going on in our room.  This summer I made some personal goals for myself and blogging is now a priortiy!!! I can tell you one thing, it isn't about how many people are reading (but a HUGE thank you to those that are!!!) it is about being proud of myself and reaching for the stars.

The first blog I ever found was Step into Second Grade with Mrs. Lemons!!!  I have said many times that I am pretty sure my students thought Mrs. Lemons was their invisible teacher that year!!!  Since then I have found so many awesome blogs and follow the teachers behind them.  I love that I have cyber friends who get me, even though we have never met.  
I also love to meet cyber friends in person!!

So here are a few things about me....

1.  I became a mom this year!!!  Well actually I became a mom September 30, 2013 but this year we began our forever together!!!!

2.  I have only traveled out of the country twice, and both times were to Haiti.

3.  I love Notre Dame football!!!  So excited for the season to kick-off!!!

4.  Teaching wasn't my first career, but it was the 2nd best decision I have ever made. (1st is obviously deciding to adopt!!!)

5.  I love things to be organized & cleaned, but this summer my house looks like a HOT mess!!!

6.  Polar Pops are my most favorite drink!!  Dr. Pepper if its the AM and Mountain Dew if its the PM!!!

Another huge shout out to Sarah for the nomination!!!  I would love to pass this on to some of my favorite amazing bloggers out there!!!

  1. I'm not sure how I'm just now reading this, but YAY! I'm so glad you were as excited as I was!
    I love seeing all your adorable photos of your daughter on Instagram! Teaching and adopting seem like 2 fabulous choices and I'm so happy they have both worked out so well for you! :)
