Tell Me More! and Monday Made It

So I have linked up with Step Into 2nd Grade and 4th Grade Frolics linky parties!

Here is a little more info about me...
 I have been with my boyfriend for almost 8 years! Crazy how time flies! Right now I'm dedicated to my career and we both decided not to get married anytime soon. We were thinking of moving to France sometime in the near future. More on that later..
I'm in love with my 9 year old pug, Maggie! I have a slight obsession of any pictures or things with pugs!

I love to travel! Whether it may be to different countries, on a cruise, or road tripping, I love them all :)

A few years ago, I decided to chop 14 inches of my hair and donate it to Locks of Love. I have extremely thick hair and they were able to create 3 wigs!

I LOVE Tom Brady! Not only did he play in UM, but he's a fantastic football quarterback :) This leads me to...

My boyfriend is a devoted Wolverine (University of Michigan). So when a game is on, I am watching it with him. GO BLUE!
I'm a cookie monster! Chocolate chip cookies to be exact!
I'm an avid collector of all thing Hello Kitty. All my students surprise me with Sanrio trinkets

I have been caught with the Pinterest bug. Then again, who hasn't :)

And last but not least, is my love for fashion. I love all things trendy and timeless (oxymoron?) I try to create looks based on my fashion mood board on the weekends (I have to wear a uniform for work :( )

And lastly for my Monday Made It, I made 6 crate seats with my mom! I love them and I will post pictures as soon as my mom gives me back my memory card from my camera :)
These are NOT my crate seats! They were found through Bing Images.

That's all for today folks! Have a great Monday :)


  1. Congrats on your blog award. I love your seat crates. I made some animal print seat crates to go along with my jungle theme. Hopefully I will be able to post them soon. Love your blog. I am your newest follower.

    1. Thank you..I would love to see how your crates turned out :)

  2. great to get to know you - welcome to the wonderful world of teaching kindergarten (which was also MY dream job). I taught pre-k my 1st 4 years, then co-taught as a special ed. teacher in 4th & 5th grades, and then 3 years ago finally got where I wanted!!! I love love love Kindergarten. The first few weeks will wear you out... but once you train them, they are usually the best of the school ;) if you EVER need me for anything, let me know!!!
