Tell Me More Tell Me More!

I am linking up with Amy over at Step into 2nd Grade for a linky party!  I love linky parties, especially ones that have a little get to know ya type aspect to them!  So head on over to her blog and link up so that I can learn more about your little quirks!!

So here ya go... Where to start, I guess we'll start from the beginning!... Don't judge! haha!

1. When I was 3, I blew on a dandelion and wished for a brother or sister... When my 3rd sister was born (I was 10) I told my parents "no, I asked for 1!" 

2. I love family and I can't wait to start my own!

3. I have tried just about every sport there is out there and didn't stick with any of them for more than 2 years... I did not get the athletic genes in my family.

4. I was terrified of dogs as a kid to the point that I would not go to a friend's house if they had one.  Somewhere between my junior year in high school and my senior year in college it kind of just faded away and I am completely obsessed and head over heels in love with my puppy Charlie!

5. When I was 15 my parents told me that I needed to learn how to ride the riding lawnmower before they would let me go get my temps for my license I'm pretty sure they just said this so that I could help them with cutting the grass, but that plan failed.  My first time trying, I ran it into the neighbors house... I never had to cut the grass again and I still got my license!

6. I love cheese but I will not eat it on anything that I will put mayonnaise or ranch dressing on... it's just too much creamyness!  The Hubs thinks I'm crazy!

7. And on the topic of Ranch dressing... I am OBSESSED with it and will put it on just about anything!

8. I am terrified of masks!  I don't know what it is but it is safe to say that Halloween is like torture for me.  My sweet nephews are also aware of this fact and use it against me as frequently as they can.

9. My husband and I met on a blind date 2 weeks before I left to go back out of state for school... We made it work and have been together for almost 4 years now.

10. I will NOT go without my toes painted and not just in the summer when I'm wearing sandals.  I won't even go more than a day in the winter either.  The thought of them being unpainted completely freaks me out. 

11. I have had 10 surgeries/procedures and I actually punched a doctor while under anesthesia... It's ok, I still see him and no damage was done!

12. I am not in my dream teaching position... I am not the biggest fan of a pull out resource room setting.  I dream of having my own classroom some day, but for now, my job is a safe and I am pretty good at it.

Welp, that's all for now!  Your turn to air out all your dirty laundry! Haha just kidding!  Head on over to Step into 2nd Grade and link on up!



  1. Girl, I'm with you on the ranch! I LOVE it too!

  4. I love your link up! So Glad I got to learn more about you! Gonna have to do this one (if it's still open when I get back from vacay!) ... But I must disagree about the ranch thing ... My hubs thinks I am crazy about hating ranch!


  5. Definitely can relate to #10. I love getting pedicures and have never been without polish. Probably unhealthy but I love polished toes. Ranch is yummy! Love it on pizza.

  6. I love your blog!! When I saw the baking, crafting, and teaching part I knew I had met a kindred spirit. haha. In addition to being an education blogger, I'm a Pampered Chef consultant I'm ALWAYS baking and coming up with new recipes. I do hand-decorated sugar cookies and cupcakes on the side. And I just celebrated my first anniversary with my husband too!! Stop by and visit me at Simply SWEET TEAching

    1. Congratulations on your 1 year!! So glad that we found each other, we sound like 2 peas on a pod, hahaha!! And on the Pampered Chef topic... I just got a pizza stone and used it this weekend... OMG, it was the best pizza I have made yet!

  7. We have a lot in common! Not only are we both scared of dogs, I have an irrational fear of masks (as in, if you're my size or bigger, you shouldn't be allowed to have one), my hubby and I are a long distance success story, and I'm a reading intervention specialist (Title I teacher)! So glad you found my blog!

  8. Nice to learn more about you! I am heading into surgery next week - let's hope I don't punch the doctor!
