My acceptance speech, a few days late!

I would like to thank the academy....

I am finallllllly home.  Again.  It is so good to be home!  The fam and I, along with my mother-in-law went to visit my brother-in-law in Virginia Beach, which on a good, traffic free day is 4 hours away.  It was good to look at the ocean, smell some salt air, shop a little, and eat some fresh seafood, but this girl is staying in hometown for at least a week.  Make it two.  While it's nice to travel, I have no lesson plans for tomorrow, laundry is in the washer, and I should be fixing the frozen pizza I hid away for our return tonight.  But instead...

This girlie is bloggin! (and watchin' some football!  My Packers had a bye week, so I'm watching Pittsburgh and Denver play...go Tebow!)

I digress.  I promised that I would accept the 9 (yes, 9...I wrote them all down so I wouldn't leave anyone out!) awards I received in the past few days.  I was completely blown away.  Again, I'm always surprised that someone other than myself is reading what I type.  Awww :) {cue the warm and fuzzy violin music....yup.}

So, I am following the rules and accepting the Versatile blogger award.  Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who gave it to you. (Thanking in no particular order:  
Stacy at  2nd Grade Paradise 
Meg at 3rd Grade in the 1st State,
Elizabeth at Fun in Room 4B,
Kristy at Cozart's Class,
Jamie at 2nd Grade Stuff,
Erika at 2B Honey Bunch,
Jessica at Apples and Papers,
Elisabeth at Twins, Teaching, and Tacos.

2. Share 7 things about myself. 
-I have been married to my wonderful hubs for 7 years.  (We met my senior year in high school...13 years ago!)
-I have an awesome daughter, Natalie, who is 2 and is her daddy's twin.
-I was a Sigma Sigma Sigma in college.  Met a lot of good friends there!
-I love music and have played the piano since I was 7.
-I would love to drive a Mini Cooper.  I sat in one this weekend!
-My dream job would be to create materials for teachers to use.  TPT and TN has helped me do that on a small scale!
-I love all things girly!

3. Pass this award on to 15 other bloggers who deserve such a great award!

 This is gonna be a hard one because a lot of you have already 
gotten this and if you have, I apologize for giving it again, so no pressure in reposting!!

Holly at Teaching is My Game

Melissa at Teaching Fashionista

Kelli at Tales from a Traveling Teacher

Allyson at Stickers and Stars

Dee at Over the Moonbow
Leanne at Spend a Day in 2nd Grade

Jen at Hooked on Teaching

Okay, I'm only doing 10, but it's late.  I had previously gotten the Liebster so I refer you back to that acceptance speech {here}.  But a shout-out to Stacy (my fellow 2nd VA teacher...awesome blog!!!) at 2nd Grade Paradise, Beth Ann at Taming My Flock of Firsties, and Kristy at Cozart's Class.

I hope I got everyone!!  Have a great Monday!
