My First Blogger Award!

I am blessed to be nominated for this award by two of my favorite people! First, my amazing sister-in-law Bailey.  Bailey has just recently joined the blogging world and I have loved keeping up with her life as a newly wed to my brother on their blog; she is a very gifted writer.  Secondly, I was nominated by one of my oldest and dearest friends, Courtney.  Her blog is also amazing and reveals what a wonderful woman she is.  Thanks so much girls! Both you hold such a special place in my heart!  Here are the rules:

1-Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2-Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3-Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4-Name 7 things about yourself that people may not know.
5-Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6-Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7-Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they've been nominated.

Okay now it is time for 7 things about me that you might not know.

1. For the most part I do not enjoy being by myself.  I am very much a people person, and feel content when I am surrounded by people I love.  I do enjoy my "me moments"  I just don't like them to be every day.  This whole hardly ever seeing my husband thing is leaving me feeling lonely, but I am doing my best to keep a positive attitude.

2.  I love reading children's books.  A perk of being a teacher is that I have an excuse to read them all the time.  This summer I read a book picked out from my classroom library by each of my students last year.  Some of the books I read are now my favorites!

3.  I am not as neat as I would like to be.  Due to the craziness of life my house is messy and it is embarrassing!

4.  I have to have the bed made each morning.  If it is made I feel like my life is a little more together.  If it is not made I feel a little crazy and like I am all over the place.  It's crazy, I know.

5.  I want to learn how to decorate cakes.  I don't know when this will happen, but someday...

6.  I have always wanted to open a bed and breakfast in an old Victorian home, in some quaint location.  I think this would be a great post retirement activity that would keep me busy doing other things I love, entertaining, baking, and cooking. 

7.  I knew I was going to be a teacher when I was in 3rd grade, and did not change my mind once.  And yes,  I still want to be a teacher.  There is nothing more rewarding.  I was reminded of that this week when one of my buddy students made up a song for me and sung it beautifully out at recess.  It was so sweet it made me tear up!

Okay...I now for the 7 nominations.....

I promise to write more about our actual lives soon!
