I want to thank Marissa from Wild About First Grade for giving me the Versatile Blogger Award!! Marissa is actually my younger sister who helped me start this blog!! I am super excited and always texting or calling her that I got a new member!! She has been a big help...and not just because she is my little sis!!

Here are the rules....

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Include a link to their site.
3. Include the award image in your post.
4. Give 7 random facts about yourself
5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.
6. When nominating, include a link to their site.
7. Let other bloggers know they've been nominated. 

Here are 7 random facts about me:

1. My mom, sister and I are all teachers. My mom retired 2 years ago.

2. My husband and I met on a blind date. Actually, 14 years ago a parent in my class introduced us. The father of one of my students and my husband were business clients. Of course, the husband and wife came to our wedding!!

3.When I read a really good book, I will stay up all night just so I can finish it.

4. My very first teaching job was with the same principal who suspended me in 7th grade for spitting water on someone during the last week of school.(He was a vice-principal back then.) He was a great principal, but retired now.

5. I love to bake!! It makes me happy. I seem to do it more when I am stressed.

6. I love to shop. The Loft is one of my favorite stores. I shopped there so much that at Christmas they sent me a beautiful bracelet as a thank you for being a great husband says it's called spending too much money!!
