TAG!

Chickadee Jubilee has tagged me! I usually ignore these when I get them by email or Facebook but I am not sure of blog-etiquette for this type of thing. My apologies to all if I mess this up. I have been experiencing a lot of blogging firsts this past weekend and this is another. So here goes.. wish me luck!

The rules are as follows:
1 ~ Post the rules
2 ~ Post 12 things about yourself
3 ~ Answer the 12 questions sent from the person that tagged you.  Then create 12 new questions for the people you tag.
4 ~ Tag 12 people and link them to your post.
5 ~ Let them know you tagged them.

Things About me:
1 ~ I could totally live in a Barnes and Noble store and be completely content. If only they would let me.
My boys would want to live there as well. It has books and Starbucks. We are good!
2 ~ I don't watch TV. Not on my own anyways. Hubby may ask me to watch a movie or a show with him but you won't catch me vegging there.
3 ~ I love Starbucks and chocolate but my favorite food is salad and ice water with lime. How does that work!?
4 ~ I am a Chicago Bears fan and no I am not from Chicago. Neither is hubby although he did live their for awhile. Football is a season at my house. 
5 ~ I live in the Southwest in the middle of dessert. I have a Southern accent that I hide pretty well until I am emotional. Can anyone figure that out? 
6 ~ I am half way through my graduate degree with a 4.0!! Don't ask, I don't know how I did it just still so excited to have a perfect score.
7 ~ I love to exercise but rarely do it. I can get the weight off but have to exercise to keep it off. It is a never ending circle.
8 ~ I claim I am not crafty just so I can get out of doing things becoming a teacher has ruined that illusion. The secret is out.
9 ~ I LOVE to clean things. I LOVE to organize things. Clean, organized things make me happy. Even better... clean, organized matching pretty things with a little bit of glitter thrown in.
10 ~ My biggest pet peeve is dishonesty
11 ~ I love to be outside... camping, hiking, climbing, mudding, 4x4ing, ATVs, snowboarding, or lying about reading a book
12 ~ I have 3 boys who drive me insane some days but swear that I am an EPIC mama and treat me like a princess. Who could not help but forgive them when they say and do things like that?? (Hubby is a great example. I love him too!)

Answered Questions:
1 ~ It's a tie between Clutter-free Classroom & Teacher Tipster... love them both!
2 ~ I love to teach history through literature. My two favorite subjects together what could be better?
3 ~ It's a surprise!!
4 ~ The rotating bookshelf from Pottery Barn (future blog post)
5 ~ The color scheme
6 ~ Sweet Home Alabama.
7 ~ Only 1 book! That is so not fair! Oh.... I know... The Complete works of C.S. Lewis, that is over 1000 pages long. It should keep me nicely entertained. I was going to say my Bible but it's an app on my phone so I don't have to use up that one with this question.
8 ~ Wedges
9 ~ Salad & Fresh Fruit
10 ~ Going to my grandparent's farm every summer
11 ~ It is part of a Dr. Seuss quote from my classroom website. "Think and Wonder, Wonder and Think". I also used Dr. Seuss to build my classroom philosophy off of (future blog post).
12 ~ Grace (I love the boo-boo song!)

 Questions to ask:
1 ~ What is your advice for new teachers?
2 ~ What is the one thing every teacher should own?
3 ~ Where is your favorite place to read a book?
4 ~ How do you destress after a long day?
5 ~ Share a favorite memory of one of your students.
6 ~ What is your biggest challenge in the classroom?
7 ~ What is your favorite snack?
8 ~ What is your classroom theme/color scheme?
9 ~ Why did you become a teacher?
10 ~ What grade do you teach?
11 ~ What blog would you recommend others to visit?
12 ~ What is your favorite thing to do
