Sunshine Award, and Holiday Excitement!

Ok my posts are getting closer together so that IS a good sign...but I'm still not where I want to be!! I have been learning a little more about uploading everything though so hopefully I will be up and running with fun ideas in NO time! Hopefully before the Christmas season is over because I love love LOVE this time of year and would love to share my cute crafts with all of you!!

I am also SUPER excited about this giveaway Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade and all the other FABULOUS bloggers are doing! These ladies are all super amazing and I am so greatful they are going to such great lengths to give away such awesome freebies!! So head on over to Farley's page and check it out because it is TRULY a spectacular giveaway!!

Ok so my next order of business.....The Sunshine Award.

I cannot even belieeeeve I was awarded this because in my opinion my blog is nowhere NEAR worthy of an award. However I am still very very greatful to Andi at Pencils, Glue, and Tying Shoes for awarding me this award. I promise I will make this place much more worthy of it over Christmas break when I have tonnnns of time! :) Thanks again Andi!

Ok so on to my award responsibilities...
1. Thank the person who gave this award and write a post about it.
2. Answer the following questions below.
3. Pass the award to 10-12 fabulous bloggers, link their blogs, and let them know you awarded them

Q and A:
1. Favorite Color?
Pink and Yellow will always have my heart as my fave colors<3
...Buuuut I do love black and gray most when it comes to clothing!

2. Favorite Animal?
I love a lot of different animals, but hands down dogs would have to be my absolute fave!
3. Favorite Number?
5 all the way! Or 55..I'm not picky :)
4. Favorite drink?
Well I am a soft drink pretty much any type of soda, except I'm not such a Mountain Dew or Root Beer fan. I mostly stick to Coke but love all soft drinks. Seriously, I drink Cokes like most people breathe. I have probably at least 4 or 5 a day...which is not something I am proud of but yes, it is definitely a fact!
I also absolutely love love LOVE margaritas. Especially in the summer, but make no mistake, I love them ALL YEAR ROUND!
5. Facebook or Twitter?
Obviously blogger should be an option! I never hopped on the Twitter bandwagon, so I guess I would have to say Facebook. However, I am not Facebooks biggest fan these days either. There are too many changes way too often and I am getting sooooo sick of reading about peoples every moves. Suuuuuper annoying.
6. Passion?
Well teaching is definitely my main passion in life and has been since I was 11. I love everything about it. But I also have a strong strong strong passion for music. I grew up with two music loving parents and relate everything in my life to songs. I love {almost} all types of music. I am always singing or quoting songs in everything I do. I even remember certain years or events by what songs were popular at the time....weird I know, but I think you get the picture...I love music :)

7. Giving or Getting Presents?
Definitely giving. While getting presents is always nice, there is nothing I love more than giving presents to my family and friends. I love Christmas shopping and coming up with ideas to get for everyone. The hardest part is waiting. I always want to give my gifts as soon as I buy them! I love seeing their reactions when they open them! :)

8. Favorite Day?
Well I feel the two most obvious/commn responses are always birthdays and Christmas. While I do love my birthday, it is always a little bit of a downer because it is in late July so that always means summer is coming to an end....Christmas is definitely my favorite time of year, as I love love LOVE the season, decorations,

Ok, so now I'm passing this award on to the following blogs:
Erica Bohrer's First Grade
First Grade O.W.L.S.
The Teacher Wife
Frogs in First
School Girl Style
