Versatile Blogger and Space Activity

Yall, I am totally breaking the "one post in a day" rule. Oh well, I kinda like this blogging thing! ;) The wonderful Ms. Solano from Ms. Solanos Kindergarten and Sarah from Kindergarten Korner awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award! WOOHOO!!! Thank you both!! :)

Here are the rules for accepting the award:

1. Thank the person that nominated you with a link back to them.
2. Tell 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass this award on to 15 newly discovered blogs and let them know that they've received an award!

Here we go...

1. I am a country girl!! I am from Texas and yes, we have cows and horses! HA! I love it and wouldn't have it any other way!

2. I am slightly addicted to Erin Condren's products. Okay, slightly obsessed.

3. I have recently been on a Starbucks kick. I love me some Skinny Vanilla Lattes! yum, yum! In fact, while my fiance studies for the GRE (prayers are appreciated for that, by the way), I am sipping on one here at Starbucks. Love it!

4. My fiance and I are from complete opposite ends of the state. For real..look at the map. I am from Corpus Christi, Texas and he is from Amarillo, Texas. Cuh-ray-zy! I can't wait to marry my groom...June 9th is the big day. :)

5. I make to-do lists ALL. THE. TIME. I sometimes feel like it is a bit too much.

6. I am an early bird. I can't stay up past 9:30 sometimes and it is embarrassing...HA! On the weekends I try to stay up late, but y'all, during the week I feel so lame! Haha!

7. I LOVE country music! George Strait (my fav), Carrie Underwood, Sugarland, Brad Paisley, you name it.. I probably love it. :)

Hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about me! Here are the blogs I am passing the award on to, in no particular order:

Teacher in the City
Crayons and Curls
Echoes of the Creator
Kinder Karen

I know this isn't 15, but y'all my fingers are tired. Please forgive me. :)

***I also uploaded a Math and Literacy Game with a Space Theme. We are doing Space in a couple of weeks, but I wanted to get a jump start. Space clip art is SO cute!! Hope you like it! :) Here is the link to check it out at my little TPT shop and my Teacher's Notebook shop. I'll send a copy to the first person who comments. Just leave your email. :)

Don't forget to stay tuned for a giveaway of my Winter Math Center Activities along with Creating and Teaching! Yippee!! :)

Cheryl, I actually teach at a private school so we are not required to do CScope. However, I did use CScope when I was student teaching, so I know all about it. HA! :) So glad to have a Texas buddy in the blogging world!

Hey again! I saw that you didn't have the little code to link your blog when you leave a comment. I can make it for you and email it to you if you want. :) (I figured it out and it is easy to just insert your blog address). You can email me.
