All about me and a sale!

My journey in blogging is so different today than it was a few months ago.  I feel so much more comfortable and willing to share, so here it is! 
Today I am linking up with Step Into Second Grade for the Tell me more, tell me more! linky.
Here are some interesting facts about me.

1.  I am originally from Louisiana.  I was born there and even had alligators in my backyard.  I came to Virginia kicking and screaming when I was 13.  Now I won't move back for anything!  I love Virginia!!
They don't have these in Louisiana!
2.  I used to listen to hard rock and longed to go to all of the concerts.  Bon Jovi was my favorite, and I have yet to see him in concert!  Maybe one day!  {SIGH}
I had these all over my acid washed jean jacket!
3.  Now I love Jimmy Buffett, though I still enjoy my hair bands!  I have been to three of his concerts and am heading off to my fourth one this September!  Can't wait!!!
The crew of us at the last Buffett concert we went to.  Ice water was important!!
4.  I have taught both 3rd and 4th grades.  I have always had a heart for reading.   I struggled greatly in math as a child, and I used the tricks my dad taught me to help teach the students.  I can only hope that it helped!

5.  I enjoy reading adult books over the summer when I don't have to read kiddy lit.  This summer has been the summer of Sophie Kinsella.  So predictable, yet funny and witty.  Love it!

6.  Two of my favorite times of year are summer and Christmas.  It is a much needed break from life at school.  I also love the snow we get here, though the last two winters have been bummers in that area.  Tomorrow I am joining the Christmas in July sale that Blog Hoppin' is hosting.  All of my holiday items will be 20% off.  Check out the other stores that are joining in the fun!  Head over to my TPT store to see what I have to offer!
Also, check out my giveaway, which ends on Thursday.

Until next time!


  1. Okay, we have one more thing in common - Jimmy Buffet! My hubby is a HUGE Parrothead, and I've become more of a fan now that we're married. We've been to his concerts the past two years (even when I was quite pregnant last yer), but we're skipping out this year in the hopes of returning again!

  2. I had a ton of those buttons as well. I thought I was so cool with them all over my pink denim jacket *sigh*. :)
