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 :)
