Here's the post I did last year about some of our first week of school activities.

Classroom Digs - a tour of my previous classrooms

This was my  classroom from last year and it is teeny tiny!  It is a 25x25 square but I think it turned out really cute!

Below is a close up view of some of the library bins.  You can see the library in the back of my room in the picture above.  It is located under the cubbies.  

In this picture the smart board isn't hooked up yet.  :(

and here's my previous classroom......

I always get asked about how to make the palm trees.  The pictures and directions can be found HERE


Meet the Teacher Monday: 10 Fun Things About Me!

I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin'   for their fun Teacher Week Topics!

So...Here we go!  WARNING:  This may include more information about me than you ever wanted to know! :)

#1  I am married to my BEST FRIEND.  A lot of people use that term but for us it really does apply.  We were best friends for 3 years before we got married.  My friends kept telling me that I was going to marry him someday to which I replied, 
 "No WAY!  He is just a friend!"   In fact, he was engaged to someone else.  :)
We've been married for well over two decades and I am still madly in LOVE with my best friend.


#2  I have 3 beautiful children and 2 ADORABLE granddaughters.  
My daughter, Britni is having a precious baby boy in October and we are so EXCITED!

My M&M's
Madison and Mackenzie

My daughter, Taylor is getting married in September to Nick.
We LOVE him so we couldn't be happier.  

My son, Hunter starts college in two weeks.  
Grab your babies because time goes so fast! :(

# 3, 4, 5  My Three Favorite Movies of ALL time are:

Forrest Gump- I've watched this movie at least 20 times and I still bawl like a baby at the end when he is standing at Jenny's grave talking to her.  It gets me Every single time!  There are so many great quotes from this movie.  But my favorite is,   Stupid is as Stupid does.

My Best Friend's Wedding- favorite quote-  "If you love someone , you say it right then, out loud.  Otherwise the moment just passes you by."

This quote always makes me think of my sweet man and how lucky I am to be married to him.  I am so thankful that I had the courage to say it right then.  Out loud...  and the best part is he said it right back!  

Sweet Home Alabama-  Oh, my word!  I LOVE this movie.  This movie makes me laugh and cry until I hurt.
My favorite quote-  "You can't ride two horses with one ass, Sugarbean."

#6,7,8  Music!  I LOVE Music!  
My three favorite songs are:


ANY song by Bon Jovi is a favorite!!!

#9 I've had some pretty cool things happen this year!  If someone had told me two years ago that I would be on CNN and  CBS This Morning I would have told them they were CRAZY!  
It is still hard to believe that it happened.  BUT it did!  As teachers we always deal with so much negativity in the press so it was great to be able to be a part of some positive publicity.  {Although some people still tried to put a negative spin on it.  Some of the comments were Ridiculous!}

#10  I can't leave out the most important part of my life.  So I have to end with this.  I serve an AMAZING God and I truly believe that HE is the reason for my success.  I was having a really tough time financially and He answered my prayers.  He showed me a way to help myself and in that He also gave me the means in which I could also help others.  If you are struggling... Pray!  God DOES answer prayers.  Maybe not always the way we want Him to but He does answer.   Remember... God sometimes answers our prayers through others, and sometimes we are the ones He puts in other people's lives to help them through a rough time.  It may be that they are lifelong friends or it may be someone we meet for only an instant.  I hope that if given the opportunity you will open yourself up and BE the ANSWER to Someone else's prayers.  It is up to each one of us to help make the world a better place!
