Monday Made-It!

 I know! Last post of the day....

I actually made it (kind of) to finally post on 4th Grade Frolics Monday Made-Its!  It's not quite done, but I have been working hard on it this week.  I am making a 5th grade interactive grammar notebook.  So, here are the first couple of pages...more to come.

Let's Talk About Me!

I'm linking up with Blog Hopping for

Like the post says, here's a few things about me.

1.) I am teaching 5th grade at a new school in the city where my husband lives!  It's completely brand new (as of Nov. 2012), and no one has used my classroom.  The best thing about this school is the fact that I student taught there 5 years ago.  So the 5th grade kids I'll be teaching were the Kindergarteners hat I student taught!  I am very excited to see them!

2.) I am married to the most patient, calm, and understanding man.  We had been dating for 7 years before we got married.  We have been married for 2 as of this past June.  However, the summer before we got married, I got a job 4 hours away from home (where he is in a doctorate program).  So now we finally get to open our wedding presents, and live together (see #1)!

3.) Like Kacey, we have two dogs who are spoiled beyond belief.  As of right now, Aster (right) and Shelby (left) are the grandkids our parents keep dropping hints about. 

4.) I love TV.  I just like it on when I am doing things.  However, there are several shows that I like and am pretty loyal to them: Sherlock, NCIS, NCIS LA, Burn Notice, White Collar, Warehouse 13, True Blood (this is a maybe, especially this new season), Game of Thrones, and Sons of Anarchy.  My husband hates my cop shows but whatever. 

5.) I am a perfectionist.  I like things the way I like my things.  I am very detail oriented about certain things.  I think that's why I spend hours on a project (TpT) and not stop until I am satisfied.  Sometimes, this can drive my husband nuts, but he loves me still.

6.) I love coffee.  Don't talk to me unless I have had at least one cup.  Don't expect any logical or coherent answer until I have had a cup.  If I don't have it, I get very cranky, and it shows.

7.) I love color!  I love bright, vibrant colors.  Right now, I am obsessed with hot pink, aqua, and bright green.

8.) I am a loud person. Period.  My family is loud; we talk loud.  I know that bothers some people, but I can't help it.  I've had a friend comment that a conversation between my mother and me sounds like a screaming match (especially since half of it is in Chinese and the other half is in English).

9.) I dislike: mosquitoes, traffic, people touching me with their toes, crooked picture frames, crickets, oatmeal, obvious grammar mistakes, and rain.

10.) I love: dogs, naps, reading, knitting, Photoshop, coffee, technology, chocolate, office supplies (especially pens), kids, and sunsets, ocean waves, music, hanging out with friends, and bad movies.

And those are a few things about me :)

August Currently!

I give you my August Currently:

LISTENING: So, okay.  I am obsessed with Pitch Perfect.  I know; it's not rational.  The movie isn't even that good...but I LOVE IT.  Don't ask me why.  I got my husband to figure out how to make ringtones with the songs.  So now my phone plays Don't You Forget About Me (for all you young folk, it's from The Breakfast Club) whenever I have an alarm set or if someone calls me.  And yes, I let it ring a bit longer because I want to hear it :)

LOVING: I finally went to the dentist and got my teeth cleaned!  It's been awhile, and I am terrified of the dentist (bad experience as a kid, long story).  I went, and it's over!

THINKING: Seeing that I'm suppose to leave for Texas on Sunday, from Richmond (3 hours away), I should pack.  But no, I'm writing on my blog. :)

WANTING: I need about that much time to get my head around the new job (YES!), living with my husband (YAY!), getting my room ready (EEKA!), and moving (UGH!).  Hence, wanting to aparate.  That means I can twirl around and be somewhere else instantly.  Do you know how easy moving, shopping, going anywhere would be?

NEEDING: This house is full of stuff I don't even remember buying!  I never knew I had so much junk!  Fall Cleaning here I come!

1.) Everyone needs Flair Pens; that's all there is to it.
2.) My new school doesn't give us plan books; so I am in need of one.  I could make one, but honestly, I really don't have the time.  I'm contemplating using this year to see how it would go.  I used it sparingly last year, and I liked it okay.
3.) I really want Hope King's Desire to Inspire Subway Art Pack.  My room has lots of walls and this would be a great motivational part!

and that's about it.  Okay, maybe I should do laundry, so I can pack soon.

Hi All,

So I went to my new school to check out my classroom and meet my fellow 5th grade teachers.  We had a great meeting and hashed out the important details at least.  However, I was able to get into the room that I am pretty sure will be mine. This is what it looks like:

I AM SO EXCITED!  I KNOW I'VE SAID THIS BEFORE, BUT OMG!!   I can't wait to get in there with all my stuff!

New Job!
