Second Post of the Day...Linky Fun...

With all of the state testing days approaching, it's time we had some fun!  Mimi over at 5th Grade Rocks, 5th Grade Rules (one of my favorites, I must say) has started a "Getting to Know You" linky party!!!  Your job is to copy and paste her questions, fill in your answers, then add one new question to the bottom of your blog...oh, and of course link your survey back to her page! As she put's "mindless fun".  We ALL need that about now!!

1.  Are you married, do you have a bf, or are you flying free as a single lady/man?
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Scott.

2.  Where did you grow up?

Good ol' Pasadena, Texas.

3.  Do you have any pets?  If so, what kind and what is his/her name?
Yes.  Cooper, a mix between a chiuaua and a yorkie.  He's a mutt but should be a cat because of his attitude!

4. What is a favorite tv show you are embarrassed to admit to watching?
Jerseylicious.  I don't know why.  I also love all the psycho Real Housewives.    

5.  Are you a saver or a spender?

6.  What is your favorite children's book?
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

7.  Were you the class clown, teacher's pet, or neither?
I was in between.

8.  Who is your favorite athletic team?
Houston Texans!!!!

9.  Where did you go on your last REALLY fun vacation?
Denver, Colorado with the fam!

10.  Who is your favorite actor?  Actress?
Actor-Gerard Butler;  Actress-Anne Hathaway

11.  Tell about the last time you cried because you were happy.
When my daughter had her military wedding.  We loFve our son-in-law and she was so happy...

12.  What is your favorite season?
Fall, of course!  Some small winter weather (cold rain, light wind), Christmas smell, falling leaves...

13.  What is your biggest regret?

Not having more friends MY age who have children the same ages as my own.

14.  What food do you just NOT like at all?
Liver! ::ACK::  Once, when I was little, I thought it was a piece of steak (and I looooove steak).  I picked it up to take a big bite before my mom caught me and it was the driest, most disgusting thing ever.   To this day, I won't even try it.  Plus, the thought of eating some animal's live is disgusting...


15. Who was your most memorable teacher, and why?
Sister Florentine...yes, I was taught by nuns!  If we were too loud, she would give homework assignments in the lowest voice possible.  And we were in big trouble if we missed them. (Our parents were paying directly for our education, mind you.)  But I also remember her encouraging my love for reading and having contests that I enjoyed.  I think I read a book a day in her class; every Beverly Cleary/Judy Blume I could get my hands on!

16.  What is your most embarrassing teacher moment?
 Falling down the stairs when trying to be authoritative!!! My biggest fear and my most embarrassing moment...and it happened TODAY!

Link on, my friends!


  1. Love, love, love the new makeover! You're one of my faves too! I love the new question...I pretty much embarrass myself daily...sometimes I embarrass myself on purpose to make the kids laugh. I'd have to say though that my biggest embarrassing moment as a teacher was when I was chosen to speak with a group of teachers from other districts around the US. When they asked me a question I gave a completely wrong answer to what they had asked and my principal chimed in with the correct answer. I was mortified for being stupid in front of important people. Luckily it hadn't happened before then and hasn't happened since. Ugh. :) Hope you're okay from your fall! :(

  2. I am so touched and HONORED to be on your BloggyList!
    What a LOVELY surprise and a perfect ending to a crazy day at school.
    Thanks, Tammmy!
