Teacher Week '13 Has ARRIVED!

Tomorrow is my BIG day, friends...First day of school has arrived! I can't wait to meet my new batch of kiddos. But, before I do, I want to link up with Blog Hoppin' for a week filled of teacher excitement- Teacher Week '13! I can't wait to see what everyone is up to in their classrooms! Let the fun begin...

Today is all about the teacher!!! Hey, that's me!

1. I am starting my 15th year of teaching! It seems like yesterday that it was my first year. 

2. I always get butterflies in my stomach the night before and morning of the first day of school. You would think I would be used to all this by now- but NO!

3. My mom and I taught at the same school for 10 years before she retired! I taught first grade and she taught second grade. Once she retired, I moved into her second grade spot! Lucky me!

4. I have an amazing husband who I have been married to for 12 years! We met on a blind date in college and have 2 beautiful boys together!

5. I have been brainwashed (willingly) to be a devoted Chicago Cubs fan (hubs family is from there).

6. I love reality TV. Our DVR is full of Housewives of New Jersey, Orange County, Beverly Hills, Big Brother, the Voice etc... Just can't get enough!

7. I love white wine. Red is OK but not my fave. The hubs and I love wine tasting, wine products etc. 

8. I live in the same neighborhood I grew up in about 2 miles from  my parents' house.

9. I love traveling and a beach vacation is my idea of heaven, minus the sand. I know that sounds crazy. I love the ocean... the smell of the salt water, the sound of the waves, etc. but I HATE sand! Kauai is my favorite island to travel to!

10. I have been blogging for a little over a year. I am so thankful for all my blogging friends and can't imagine life without their support and friendship. 

Make sure to link up this week and share a little about yourself and your classroom!  

Also, thank you to everyone who entered my Wise Decor giveaway. A winner has been selected! A BIG congratulations to Andrea L.!

  1. Loving your comment about being brainwashed to be a Cubs fan - hubby brainwashed me into liking sports - although with 6 boys I never stood a chance!
