Top 10 Things About Me

If you haven't already checked out Mrs. Owens linky party, you've gotta click on over and check it out! Top 10 Things About Me
Here's my top 10:
1.  I know it can be a bit raunchy—but I love the HBO series True Blood! There’s just somethin about those hot vampires and werewolves!

2.  I H.A.T.E. frogsEspecially those little, suction-cup-toed frogs that cling to your windows and doors, and jump crazy far.

3.   I love Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.  My current fave is a large iced coconut coffee with skim milk and 3 sweet and lows.  Mmm mmm

4.  I am tenacious!  Although some people have other ridiculous words for it, like, I don’t know--stubborn.

5.   I am a total “Teacher Geek”And I am fine with it!

6.  I love the Target brand--"market pantry" peanut butter-filled pretzels.  Dip them in Nutella and call them DELICIOUS!

7.  I am a Target addict.  I know many of us teachers are, thanks in no small part to the Dollar Spot.  But I actually make-up reasons to go to Target.  “Oh no, I’m out of laundry detergent again”…”uh-oh, we need cat litter”.  Then of course when I get to Target you know where I head first, right?  Yep, I make a bee line for the Dollar Spot, and cautiously scour every inch to make sure I have not missed one single thing I could use in my classroom.

8.  I am obsessed with downloadable graphics.  I love scrappindoodles.com and justsoscrappytoo.com!

9.   I am originally from Minnesota, right in the heart of all those lakes.  Specifically the Brainerd Lakes Area.  But I now live in New York.  So I am a code-switcher, for instance: in Minnesota we wear tennis shoes, in New York we wear sneakers.  In Minnesota we drink pop, in New York we drink soda.  I could go on and on and on about that one!

10.  I am obsessed with teaching blogs, all those wonderful, creative, generous teachers are truly gifted.  And I know without a doubt, that since I entered the blogging world last November, I have become a better teacher thanks to my obsession.
