My Top Ten!

I am linkin' up with Blog Hoppin' to tell you just a little about me! Here are my top ten things that you should know {although some are a little random}!

10. I am a total Craft-A-Holic and love creating, gluing, bedazzling and making anything sparkle. I love, love, LOVE to paint and swear that I can make anything look better with a little "touch up"!  Seriously, this is an intense addiction! :) Especially now that Pinterest is in my life, I always have to itch to create! It is my therapy! :)  

9. I am obsessed with Diet Dr. Pepper!  If I told you how many of these I drink a day...I would be totally embarrassed! {Please don't tell my runners!!! - refer to number 7}

8. Is anyone else on Team Edward? Yes, yes, I am a definite Twi-hard and am totally OK with it! I am counting down the days to Breaking Dawn and may have even read the books...TWICE!!! {don't judge} 

7. I love to run! Ok...I am in love with running! I have ran since middle school and continued into college where I ran Cross Country and Track for my University. I am now assistant Cross Country coach at the high school in my district! Our girls won state last year and we are headed for Double Trouble!  WATCH OUT! ; )

6. I am a BIG reality TV junkie! Yes...anything and everything including the Bachelor and Bachelorette, Teen Mom, Jersey Shore {shhhh!}...seriously the list goes on! I won't go there!

5. I Can't live without my Keurig! It ranks right on up there with my husband Diet Dr. Pepper!

4. I begin my PhD program in January at Clemson University {Go Tigers!}...say a little prayer for ME!

3. I LOVE my job! Although the teaching profession can get a tad chaotic at times, there is no other place that I would rather be. There is not greater joy than to see those bright smiling faces each morning that just can't wait to learn. Light bulb moments are the best and my hope is that I inspire my students half as much as they inspire me. I am truly, truly blessed to work with such amazing kids!

2. I am married to the most patient, Godly man in the entire universe. He is my biggest fan! We just recently celebrated our one year anniversary! We were married last July in Venice, Italy with about 30 of our closest friends and family. Hands down...the most ROMANTIC day of my life!

1. Jesus is my Savior and without him I am nothing! He makes me everything that I am and prepares me for everything that I will become! He is my strength in this crazy life!

Head on over to Blog Hoppin' to link up with all of the fun!

  2. I don't think it's possible to be a teacher without a diet soda obsession. My "need" for diet coke reached such a high towards the end of the school year last year that I put myself on a pretty serious diet coke restriction this summer. Of course, now that I'm back working in my classroom everyday the restriction is over. I hate coffee, so I need the caffeine to be productive!

  3. I'm totally Team Edward! You're wedding looks so romantic! I love Venice! Good luck on your PhD!Rambling About Reading

  4. YAY for Clemson! I live about 30 minutes from there! Go TIGERS!! =)

  5. Congrats on going back to school! I have been thinking about it and just need to get the application going. I am dragging my feet on putting together the sample research piece that is required. It has been a long time since I have done that stuff! Best of luck and hopefully I will be having the same experience next fall!
