So excited... my First Award!

I have been absent from Blogland for the past two weeks, and VERY present in my classroom.  School has started and is in full swing now.  Imagine my surprise when I finally checked my blog yesterday, and saw that Mrs. Wyand over at Keeping it True in K-1-2 left me a comment, and has awarded me with my very first blog award! I ran around telling everyone who would listen (maybe I'm not modest enough...), and now I get to post about it!  It's the Versatile Blogger Award.  

Here are the rules:

 The Rules after accepting the Versatile Blogger Award are:
  • Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Pass this award along to 15 recently discovered blogs. 
Thanks Mrs. Wyand!!
7 things about me:
  1. I don't watch T.V. except for the occasional PBS cartoon with my boys.
  2. I do, however, watch certain shows on Netflix, and I get so addicted I watch the entire series in only a few weeks.  My loves:  Grey's Anatomy, Glee, and Merlin (the current one).
  3. I am also addicted to chocolate - only the real stuff. I dream of DARK chocolate cakes and brownies.  
  4. I know how to make old-fashioned ice cream sodas, milkshakes, etc. as I used to work in an old-fashioned ice cream parlor.  
  5. I am a listmaker - I have a list for everything!
  6. I love writing my family's menu each week, and trying out new recipes I find on blogs.
  7. I enjoy children's books and young adult novels more than books written for grown-ups.  
15 blogs I've recently found: 
1. Shenanigans in 2nd Grade (Very creative teacher!) 
3. Counting Coconuts  (Montessori-inspired activities for preschoolers!  I heart this website so much!)
5. Miss O's Library Land  (Great idea for a blog, and great place to find new books for kids)
7. Pencils, Glue, and Tying Shoes  (Wow!  I haven't checked this one in a month or so and she has tons of cute stuff up -- some of my same ideas, too.  Great minds think alike! Ha!)
13.First Grade to the Core  (I linked up to a GREAT idea!  Buying my brain today! ;-)  )
15. Tickled Pink  (New one for me -- I need to explore it more!)

Thanks so much for reading my blog! :)


  1. Thank you! Just saw my award as I have been MIA for awhile....beginning of year (eek).
