Liebster Part 2

Thank you, Melanie, for nominating me for the Liebster award. See my post from yesterday for my first set of quesitons! 

1. If you weren't a teacher, what would you be? Probably a Pediatric Nurse. I really can't imagine being anything other than a teacher!
2. What is your favorite thing about your classroom? All of my bright colors (and owls). 
3. What do you like least about your classroom? some of the limitations such as can't put that there because that would be in the way (normal stuff)
4. What are you currently reading? I want to read Redeeming Love, but haven't downloaded it yet. 
5. How long have you been blogging? since July 1st
6. Pets? Funny you should ask. Growing up, I always had a cat outside. 4 years ago, my last cat died. Well, we decided to get a cat after we got married. It would be an inside cat. Let's just say, it didn't work out well. We are in the process of looking for him a new home or possibly us a new home that would have a backyard (we live in a townhouse). 
7. What school supply can't you live without? That's a tough question, but my husband would probably say COLORFUL pens. I did all my grading in different colors and loved it! I look at pens everywhere we go :)
8. What is your dream vacation destination? ITALY! Always has been. We hope to go for our 10 year anniversary. Only 9 more years to go!
9. What's on your summer bucket list? I think my biggest thing I wanted to do was to spend more time with family. So far, I have done that!
10. What is your "go to" blog? I am just really getting into faithfully following blogs, so that's a hard one to pick!
11. Favorite snack? anything sweet! I was craving ice cream earlier today! (I distracted myself with cleaning - lame, I know)!

11 More Facts:

1. I am extremely thankful for my teaching job! I know it's not easy to get one! I was an aide two years before I got my first job! God always provides!
2. I don't like thunderstorms. 
3. I have lived in the South all of my life, and wouldn't trade it! With that being said, I am a Auburn fan!
4. I met 5 of my students for the year today. They are attending "boot camp." I am loving getting to know them!
5. Getting up early was a rude reminder of what it will be like in a month. 
6. I have several hundred children's books, on all levels. Most were bought at yard sales or thrift stores.
7. One of my biggest pet peeves is for parents not to take care of their children. 
8. I sometimes fill my schedule way too much. I'm learning how to say no to some things.
9. My parents brought be duct tape tonight with owls on it. :)
10. I grew up playing softball and one of my favorite sports to watch is baseball!
11. One of my best friends is my 85 year old grandmother. I talk to her everyday!

I would be honored to nominate anyone! Let me know if you know someone because I still haven't found anyone with less than 200 followers (that hasn't been nominated), but would love to!  


  1. I was having the same problem finding blogs without 200 followers that hadn't been nominated! I am glad that I found you! Loving owls for my theme this year!

  2. Cute blog and congratulations on being nominated! I would love to get nominated...I definitely have well below 200 followers. Would you nominate me? Thanks!
