Liebster and Versatile Blog Awards

Thank you to Alex over at The School Potato for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger and Liebster Blog awards! I'm so excited to be working with this enthusiastic new educator. She is truly a breath of fresh air and reminds me WHY I love education so much. I cannot wait to work with her in a mentoring role as I know I am going to learn just as much from her as she will from me. I've already stolen several ideas from her, sought her for advice and it is her encouragement that got me here blogging in the first place! I am so looking forward to having her awesome group of second graders visit the lab and to co-teaching with some fancy technology integration. Pop over to her blog to check out her amazing resources (Can you believe she is a first year teacher?)! How lucky are we to have her at our school this year?

Versatile  Blogger: 7 Random Facts About Me
1. I am allergic to seriously, I have severe allergies! I am allergic to almost everything under the sun!
2. I have two puppies (hypo-allergenic), Lilly & Gremmy. Lilly because lilies are my favorite flowers and Gremmy because the name had to end in a "y" or /e/ and she looks like a gremlin. 
3. 7.28.12 the best day of my life when I married my best friend and an amazing man in my favorite place OBX.
4. I live, eat, breath, sleep, walk, talk ... school. I'm kind of a nerd!
5. I am obsessed with AWFUL reality TV (Bachelor, Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad, Big Brother). I am embarassed to admit this fact.
6.  I try to love working out and exercising but the whole time I am thinking of all the "better things" I could be doing or things I should be doing. I am attempting to run, maybe a book on tape will help me be more motivated.
7. I love to shop! It's not that random, basically every girl loves to shop but I have two closets full of clothes and two large dressers plus bins to switch out for each season and to think I can never find anything to wear!
