Oh my goodness I am falling into my old habits of posting every 3 weeks! Let me sum up my life right now for you in 3 words...Wedding, Wedding, and WEDDING. Between bridesmaids dresses, and bridal shows, photographers, nd not to even mention the whirlwind that was wedding dress shopping {which I just got back from and am EXHAUSTED}, I have been a total ball of stress slash craziness! So this post is basically to apologize for my slacker-ness (Is that a word? It is now.), and to tell you that I PROMISE I wll get my life together tomorrow. I started the Clutter Free Classroom Project, and have lots of pictures and info to share with you! I feel so far behind and it's starting tostress me out, so I promise I will get my life together this week and share all that I have to share with you! Just wanted to let you guys know I am barely still alive!

Hope you guys had a wonderful long weekend! {For those of you that had long weekends, the rest, I just hope you had a good weekend!!! :)}

Much love,

Versatile Blogger Award!

So, I can't believe it and have no idea why, but I have been awarded the Versatile Blogger Award! A huuuuge thank you goes out to Sara S. from Smiling in Second Grade for the award!
It's getting to be past my bedtime, so I'll get right to it! :)

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who presented the award to you and link back to them.
Thank you so much Sara S.! Go check out her blog! It's super cute!

2. Tell seven things about yourself.
1. I have the mind of a seven year old...literally. I fall asleep to the Disney Channel every night and...I don't have kids so I have no excuse! Lol
2. I have been dating my fiance since I was a freshman in high school.
3. I want to open my own dance studio someday or be a high school cheerleading coach. {Part time, of course! I will always be a teacher first!)
4. I hate's basically my kryptonite.
5. I am terrified of candy wrappers, ESPECIALLY gum wrappers. Seriously, the sight of them makes me want to puke.
6. I have the weirdest memory on Earth and remember things in extreme detail. I can remember exactly what someone was wearing on a specific date 5 years ago, or what exactly how old I was when songs came out.
7. I have a SERIOUS shopping problem! I realize that my seven things make me sound like a complete FREAK, but at least now you know me a little better :)
Ok, so I'm really NOT as weird as I sound...I just have several...quirks. :)
Pass this onto 15 newly discovered blogs and let them know they've received the award.

Learning in First

Kindergarten: for Teachers and Parents

Mrs. Huff


Ok, so that's not quite 15 but I honestly don't know of any more blogs that haven't already won the award, and like I said...It's past my bedtime!!!

Once again, thanks to Sara S. and thanks to ALL of you who support and follow me! :)

Much love,

Clutter Free Classroom Project

Happy New Year everyone!! I am sure everyone is suffering the same "back to school blues" that I am! Today is my last day of actual break, and then tomorrow we have professional development allllll day long! Don't get me wrong, I love getting new ideas and getting fun techiques and methods from a professional, but if I've gotta get up early, dress up, and be at school all day, I would much rather be teaching! However, I am SUPER pumped that I got my report cards and permanent record sheets done BEFORE break so all I really have to do is plans and my newsletter! {And yes, totally waiting until the last minute on that one!}

Anywho, I am very excited to be a part of Clutter Free Classroom's Clutter Free Classroom Project. I have been needing to declutter my classroom ALL YEAR! I know, you're thinking, "how much clutter can a 2nd year teacher possibly acquire??" Trust me, A LOT. That crazy 3-and-a-half week period between Thanksgiving and Christmas break was SO hectic this year, that I let my classroom get TOTALLY out of control. It's been driving me insane, so I am SO grateful to have found this challenge!

I think this will be a fun way to help motivate me to get my life in order!! There will be organizational challenges every Sunday and linky parties every Friday to share!! What a fun idea!!
For more information, visit the Clutter Free Classroom Project, where there is plenty of helpful information to join!

Well, that about does it for today, I am going to go bask in my last few hours of break by watching one of the MILLIONS of season dvds I received  bought myself for Christmas! :)

I hope you all had either a great first day back, or are enjoying your last few hours just like me! And if today is not your last day of freedom, well then...I hate you.
*TOTALLY* kidding, but seriously, I'm super jealous! :)

Much love,
