Now...Let's Talk About Me! No school stuff, there will be enough of that Tues-Fri!
#1 I am a coffee addict! Now that I live within five miles of at least 5 Starbucks, it has gotten even worse. I grew up and lived in a small town with the nearest Starbucks 60-75 miles away. Even so, I leave it as a Friday AM treat...or else my wallet would be empty!
#2 I am a newbie runner, as some of my blog posts have mentioned... I am now training for a 10K! Wish me luck!
#3 I am the mother of an almost 4 year old! OMG! How did she grow so fast...I keep getting "when are you going to have another one?" Daycare in our area is crazy expensive...so maybe after Addy goes to kindergarten next year.
#4 My husband, Ben (who is a NEW 4th grade teacher!!), are going to be married 5 years this September (27th). We will be together 11 years on September 18th...so I always claim that we are celebrating for 10 days...One year we will go someplace tropical to celebrate!
#5 I am a BON JOVI fanatic...even though his last concert was not up to par with the past concerts, I am still a huge fan. But I will admit, Richie Sambora was my favorite...so I guess I am bias now that he is not a band member anymore. I have seen them in concert 13 times!
#6 I am a NY native! Only moved to VA (NOVA) 19 months ago. And not NYC...I'm talking upstate...in the sticks!! Only graduated with 26 people! Around here K-12 are in the small building...and there is a superintendent in every school! But, there are no jobs here. I subbed, daily and long term, at the same school for 4 years and they were not hiring at the end of the year, they were laying off. And one thing is for sure, I DO NOT MISS THE SNOW! On the left is the first apartment my husband and I lived in as a married couple...no sunlight got in between the buildings so there was always a 5 inch layer of ice on the driveway. This picture is from a blizzard we had back in 2010.
#7 I have a weakness for geeky-hot men! Especially Jason Bateman! I have heard that Arrested Development is hilarious, so I guess I am going to have to Netflix it...
#8 I never miss a season of the Bachelor/Bachelorette...I know, I KNOW! Bad reality TV junkie meetings are in my future! I am super excited about Juan Pablo being the next Bachelor.
#9 I LOVE the funny/almost always snarky someecards! I have a Pinterest board dedicated to them...
#10 ...and lastly...I know I said I wasn't going to talk shop, BUT... I absolutely love the beginning of the school year. Buying new clothes, breaking down and getting the Erin Condren planner...adding my name to the wishlist for a pair of pretty little black Tieks, creating my own classroom decor, ALL OF IT!
