One Lovely Blog Award

Hello, friends! It is Friday, and what better way to spend the evening than cuddled up, watching Real Housewives of ANYwhere, listening to Periscope, and talking to you!? Awhile back, Jayme nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award, and I have been meaning to post about it, but with summer break in full swing, it has taken me awhile..
This award usually goes to us "smaller" bloggers!! What an honor to be nominated for this award!!
So, here are 10 "fun" facts about me....

1. I am the second of 4 kids. The order is boy-girl-boy-girl. Both brothers are married, and the eldest has 2 boys, making me a very proud auntie!!

2. I have taught every grade level. I once taught at an independent study/home-school charter school, seeing students once a week... Talk about crazy lesson planning and grading!!!

3. I have a book addiction. I love to buy books, but I usually read about 6 at a time because I have trouble committing to one. (Unless it is written by Emily Giffin or Jennifer Weiner. I love them)

4. I am sensitive. I get my feelings hurt easily, and get teary when someone else is upset. Thankfully, I can usually hold the tears back when needed.

5. I may have more Disney movies than most children.

6. I watch A LOT of reality t.v. and teen dramas. They're my guilty pleasure.

7. I played trumpet for 8 years, but not many people knew it. I even hid this fact from friends in high school and made sure I was never in marching band. I now wish I still played.

8. I eventually want to get a Master's degree in curriculum and instruction. This is waaayyy down the line, but I think creating for TPT has really interested me in the what and why of creating curriculum and lesson delivery/engagement.

9. I have never been to WDW. It is a bucket list item, and we are planning a trip in a few years when my parents celebrate their 40th anniversary.

10. If I wasn't a teacher, I'd be an event coordinator or an interior decorator. I love making things look spectacular (on someone else's dime, hehe)!!

And now, my nominees!!
