Teacher Week '13 {Let's Talk About Me}

Teacher Week is seriously as good as Christmas!

At least in my book it is :) There are alot of wonderful topics for this week and I can't wait to share them all with you!

I just love reading all of my friends blogs and learn more about them! So the 1st topic of Teacher Week '13 is just PERFECT!

So before writing this post, I read my friend Kelli's, from Surviving the Little People, "Let's Talk About Me" post and she said it made her think of the song by Toby Keith "Let's Talk About Me" and now, I can't get it out of my head! Thanks alot Kelli ;)

Anyways, onto 10 things about me...

1. First and foremost, I am married to the best man a gal can ask for! We have been together 8 years this summer. We met when we were camp counselor at Sky Ranch. It was immediate attraction ;) that grew into a lifetime of love! We got married (Sept. 2009) 4 years after we met. I have to say dating for awhile was such a blessing. We have been married for 4 years this September and I feel the same way about being married for awhile before starting a family. I've enjoyed all the fun we've had, but now we are ready to add a few more to our family!
here we are! 8 years ago!
and on our wedding day. Look how handsome he is!
2. The only babies we have are our fur babies. Stella, our golden retriever, and Allie, our king charles cavalier. I love them both so much! Stella is definitely her daddy's girl and Allie is a momma's girl. Allie is really going to freak out when we have a baby because right now she's the baby of the family.

3. This will be my 6th year of teaching. I have taught 2 years of 4th grade, 3 years of 1st grade, and this year will be my 1st year in 2nd grade. I'm excited for my new journey!

4. I LOVE changing my hair. I have had short, long, blonde, brown, curly, straight, bangs, no bangs. I'm not scared to change my hair at all!

5. The year after I graduated college I was in the Miss Texas USA pageant. I was Miss College Station. Can you say BIG Texas hair? 

6. My family is very close! My mom and my sister are my best friends. Can you tell why?

7. I LOVE clothes! My favorite store is JCREW. I swear I could buy their entire shop.

8. I have played the piano since I was 8. I can't wait till we can get a piano for our house. My childhood piano is at my parents house and I'm sure it'll stay their for awhile.

9. Oh my goodness! How could I forget about this?! I went to college at Texas A&M. Love me some Aggies and I'm hoping Johnny Football gets his act together because we can't have ineligible for the football season!

10. If I wasn't a teacher, I would definitely be a wedding planner! After planning my own, I just knew this is something I'd enjoy doing! I love details and I'm really good and not forgetting those tiny details that no one thinks of. I'm kind of a perfectionist and I won't leave anything half done. I always think if I had gone into that major instead of education, where would I be?

Well I hope this post allowed you to get to know me alittle more than before and make sure to stop by tomorrow to check out my classroom digs!

  1. Haha... Oops!! I can't help it that the song is catchy! :) I love everything new that I've just learned about you!! I love the pageant pictures, I'm sure that was a fun experience! I too, love JCrew, if only it weren't so dang expensive! & By the way... When did you learn you're doing second?!? I swear I read somewhere that you were going to be some kind of specialist on campus? :)

    Surviving the Little People

    1. Yes! I am going to be the Title 1 teacher for 2nd grade at a school right down the road from my school. It's part time and absolutely perfect for my family's needs! I'm very excited since most of the babies I work with will be low and will be on 1st grade level which is what I know alot about. :)

      As for JCREW, go to the outlet! I NEVER buy from the actual store :) They give a teacher discount too!

    2. Haha I totally thought I missed something! Glad to know I didn't! & when I do shop JCREW it's only the outlet!!

  2. WHOOP! I'm an Aggie teacher too! I love your post! :)

    1. yay for Aggies! I'm coming to follow your blog right now! :)

  3. Girl.... your wedding dress was AMAZING!!!!! Loved reading about you!
    Thanks for linking up!

    1. aww thanks so much! When my mom pulled it off the rack I said NO way because of the straps but she said I should just try it on! So I did, and I'm so glad because it was the ONE! :)

  4. Pageant girl, say what!? I thought you looked familiar...LOL just kidding. And as for football season, I'm SO ready!

    For the Love of First Grade

    1. pahaha oh I didn't get very far in the pageant :) haha more of an experience! And yes!! Football! Maybe that's where we should meet! Weekend in Aggieland for a game! What do you think?!?!

  5. I love all the pics of your hair(s)! I really like the pic of you and your husband that looks like you are standing between two peices of striped metal. Where is that???

    1. It's actually between two beds of semi trucks! Our photographer found them in a small town called Prosper, right outside Dallas! The picture turned out amazing! Thanks!

  6. Love all your pics! I love changing my hair too but I promised my hubby that once we got married I would stay (some version) of blonde. I miss changing my hair. We are ready to start a family too. Scares my husband completely. No idea what our spoiled fur baby will do. Loved getting to know you a little better!

    Rowdy in First Grade

    1. Sounds like we are very much alike! After we got married, I cut my hair into a short bob and went blonde. I got married with long, brown hair. I definitely like being blonde more. I can't wait to have a baby :) My husband is scared too, but ready! :)
