TAG- I'm it and giveaway reminder!!!

I’m so excited!  I was “tagged” by Elizabeth from  You have to check out her blog if you don’t know her already.  She is absolutely hilarious.  She tagged me in a blog tag…

So here are the rules:

1. You must post the rules.
2. Post 12 fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create 12 new questions for the people you tagged.
4. Tag 12 people and link them on your post.
5. Let them know you've tagged them!

Fun Facts- I tried to make them non-teaching ones!!!
1.      My husband and I actually met on a double date!  (Believe me the story gets even more weird!)
2.    My husband and I have recently fallen in love with Mexico.  Our traveling buddies introduced us.  There is nowhere else you can stay for 7 days and never take out your wallet for THAT cheap!
3.    We have 3 dogs.  Yup- we don’t live on a farm in a housing development and it seems CrAzY 24/7!
4.    My claim to fame is that I was on ESPN Sports center!  My brother-in-law was playing at the Walnut bowl and I decked myself out with face paint, a crazy hat and a sign that said, ESPN vertically and I wrote Hey Spielman, Happy New year on the sign.  The announcers said, “Hey it looks like you have a diehard fan!”  J
5.    I discovered about a year ago that I am gluten sensitive.  I am pretty good at staying on my diet- until brownies or Waffle House is presented.  J
6.    I am ObSeSsEd with Silver jeans.  I seriously cannot get enough pairs of them! 
7.    I usually buy fun and colorful binder and paper clips once a month to make my school day a little brighter!  ;)
8.    My favorite movies are polar opposites- Easy A and Good Will Hunting.  What is with that???
9.    I CANNOT cook!  My husband does all of the cooking.  I am excellent at making appetizers and salads,  By excellent- I mean that it is edible.
10.  I own 1 vehicle like a typical American.  My husband however owns 4!!!!  2 trucks, 1 car and 1 race car.  I think that I should at least get one more just to even it up a little!
11.  As a little girl I always wished to have a “mansion”.  After living for 3 years in our first house- my “wish list” has narrowed down to only 3 wishes.  1.  A mud room (Um.. I have 3 dogs!), 2.  A large garage so that I may someday park in the garage.  3.  I actually want a ranch house with a finished basement!
12.  My number one favorite hobby is… buying people gifts!  I don’t care if we have only known each other for 4 minutes- I’m probably going to buy you a gift.  I need to learn how to be crafty so that I can make cute gifts to save on the moo-lah!  J

My Questions from Elizabeth:  J
1.     How much time do you waste spend online blogging and blog hopping per week?
Oh gosh- I’d have to say at least 9 hours!  J

2.  Pepsi or Coke?
Dr. Pepper actually but usually diet coke because we have a coke machine in the teacher’s lounge and that is when I definitely need the caffeine!

3.  Are you addicted to Pinterest?  If so, what is your favorite board?
No!  I should be!!!!!  I need suggestions stat!  I only have 1 board and it is a page of small gifts for coworkers.  SUPER cute!

4. Do you have a Smart Phone?  Do you use it to take pictures of your class/classroom?
Yes I have an iphone.  I use it for tons of things in the classroom
!  I take photos. Videos/ time students for fluency, have students use it to record their thoughts etc.

5. What is your favorite movie?
A tie- Easy A and Good Will Hunting.  I know, I know… super weird!

6. What are your hobbies?
I guess I should have read these BEFORE I wrote my fun facts!  I LOVE shopping and trying to buy thoughtful gifts for people.  Seriously- it is a sickness.  I can fill a shopping cart and only have 1 thing for me.

7. If you were given $1000 to spend RIGHT NOW, what would you spend it on?
Hmmm… I would buy gift baskets for my friends!  See above about my sickness.  A close second is massages and an all inclusive trip to Mexico for my hubby and I.  (Well a 4 day trip.)

8.  What SHOULD you be doing right now, but can't pull yourself away from the computer to do?
Lol… grading papers!  It definitely is not my favorite part of teaching!

9.  Are you teaching your dream grade level?
Ummm… yes but I would love to try second grade!  I think I’d like a crack at having a class of students that are a tad bit more independent!  I would however be happy to stay in first grade for at least 5 more years!

10.  What subject is your least favorite to teach?
History!  Thanks goodness my 1st grade level history isn’t too bad to teach!

11.  Do you have a TpT store? 
Yes!  I started it solely to keep up with what I’m spend!

12.  How long have you been blogging?
Gosh- not long at all!  I started blogging at the beginning of the school year.  I am still trying to get the hang of it!!!!

I’m tagging:
*Rachel from edlink first grade
