Meet the Teacher Blogger! {a linky party!}

My sweet friend Stephanie from Falling into First is hosting a Meet the Teacher Blogger linky party! Such a fun way to read about your favorite teacher bloggers and share a little about yourself!

Here's a little about me...
I will be starting my 5th year of teaching in Southern California! I've heard year 5 is the best ;) I have taught Kindergarten-3rd grade, but my heart belongs to kinder! I work at a fabulous school, with an even more fabulous team and I could not be happier about it!

My fiancé and I ;) We recently got engaged and are planning a wedding in April. 
4.11.15 because I'm OCD about numbers ;)

Here's a look at my amazing ring! I am on lucky lady!

Q: These are a few of my favorite things…
Shopping at Target {duh}, chevron print, and watches. I'm kind of obsessed with watches.

Q: If you weren’t a teacher, what would you want to be?
A professional organizer, hands down!

Q: Three little words that describe you. 
Creative, Obsessive, Positive

Q: Finish this sentence, “___________________, said no teacher EVER!!”
"There's so much time in the day!", said no teacher EVER!!

Q: It’s your birthday and you can invite anyone {dead or alive} to the party. Who are you inviting?
My sister!

Q: If someone wrote a book about your life, what would be the title?
Just a Little Crazy ;)

Q: You get to pick one superpower. What is it?
Okay I seriously was thinking this today! I wish I had the power to create something {anything} in my head and have it print out into real life. Like when I spent hourssss looking for the perfect engagement picture outfits, and I knew exactly what I wanted, but I just couldn't find it anywhere. I would like to use my super power then ;)

Q: What’s your favorite quote or saying?
"Believe you will succeed, and you will."

Q: If you HAD to sing one song on American Idol, what would it be? 
Ooh this is a tough one! My secret dream is to be on American Idol but I definitely would be the "blooper reel". I think I would choose Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

Q: Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I am a middle of the day person, thankyouverymuch.

Q: What’s your favorite resource that you’ve created in your TPT shop?
So hard to pick!! I think I would choose my calendar notebook. It's the newest addition to my shop so maybe that's why I heart it so much :)

Q: Share something we might not know about you!
I shared this a few years ago on my blog, and people thought I was crazy, so might as well share it again ;) I have a thing for dryer lint. I love to collect it {not like I keep it! Collect it and then throw it out!} I'm okay with the fact that no one else removes the dryer lint because I obviously love it.

Now it's your turn! Visit Stephanie's blog, grab the buttons and the questions and link on up!

  19. I was a big weirdo about my wedding date, too. I chose 3-23-13 because I had to have a 3 as the final digit in each part of the date. Which part of Southern California are you in? I'm at a K-8 charter in San Diego.
