Three things - Meet the Teacher Monday!

I am linking up again this week with Trina over at The Ordinary to Extraordinary for this weeks Meet the Teacher Monday.  Yes, I know that today is already Wednesday, but she knows how busy we all are and I love that we can link up any day of the week!!

This week's topic is . . .


List three words that describe you:

1 - Organized - before we had kids I was even more organized than I am now.  I would still say that I am pretty organized, I do plan our meals a month at a time, and have to plan out my grocery list before I head any where.  I try to keep my classroom organized too, but that is something that I am continuing to work on all the time!

2 - Planner - I am a HUGE planner!  I like to plan everything.  If I don't know what is going on, then we usually don't do it.  My husband on the other hand is not a planner, and usually does not keep track of what things we have going on.  This has caused some missed events over the years, but we are starting to find a system that works better for us.  (Thank you iCloud for connecting our devices and calendars!)

3 - Introvert - I am very shy when you first get to know me, and I rarely am the first one to talk in a large group.  Even if I am in a group of friends I tend to be one of the quiet ones in the room.

What are three things on your bucket list?

I want to watch my kids grow old, vacation on a tropical beach with no worries, be debt free!  (You could say my bucket list is more of a wish list!)

What is your favorite music genre?  What are your three favorite songs (any genre)?

I love music!!  My favorite genre is probably Christian music or Country music.  I could listen to both all day long!  Currently I have a few favorite songs!

My favorite Christian song at the moment is Cornerstone by Hillsong.  I just love it!!

An oldie, but a goodie is This Man by Jeremy Camp.  This music video is crazy with scenes from The Passion, but the lyrics are AMAZING!!

Another favorite song is by Brad Paisley!  This was my first dance with my hubby at our wedding!  Since we used it my best friend and her husband had to pick a different song, even though we got married two years apart, and we were the only couple that was at their wedding that was also at our own wedding!

If you won the lottery, what three things are you going to buy first!?

The first thing I would do is pay off all of our debt!! I hate having debt, and just want to be debt free. After I did that, I would buy another car!!  We are living on one car right now, and have been making it work since my son was born, but it is starting to get hard!  Lastly, I would buy my class a set of iPads!

What is your favorite movie genre?  What are your three favorite movies?

My favorite movie genre used to be horror movies.  I could watch them all, and never be scared.  Now movies are too jumpy for me.  I hate when things jump out at me!  I love the Saw movies though, and my husband says that make me sick!  haha

My three favorite movies, that I could watch over and over again have to be:  Pretty Woman, The Breakfast Club, and too many to choose from!!  Step Up, RENT, Phantom of the Opera, The Proposal, Ice Age, Beauty and the Beast

List three of your character flaws:

I can be very indecisive if I don't really have an opinion - drives my husband crazy!

I take offense when parents say negative things about my class or classroom.

I will spend hours reading the car rather than having a conversation with my husband - also drives him crazy so I'm trying to work on it!

What are three friendship personality DEAL BREAKERS?!

Someone always trying to one up you - you know the people who always have something better or bigger than what you are talking about.

Someone who never has anything positive to say, about anything!!

Someone who can't listen, but always has to talk.

Three things you want more of?

Sleep - baby girl will be one in April, hoping that is the magic number for her like it was for her brother!

Time - my babies are growing up WAY TOO QUICKLY!!

Books - I can never get enough!!  I love to read!

If you made it this far thanks for taking the time to get to know me a little bit more!! I would love to hear from you!!  Let me know if we have anything in common, or if you hate any of my favorites!!  :)


  1. Hi there!

    My name is Chelsea and I blog over at I'm not sure if it would be something you are interested in, but I am starting a new feature on my blog called the Thursday Featured Teacher as a place for other teacher bloggers to have the opportunity to write a guest post and reach out to my readers to maybe gain more followers. If you are interested, I'd love to have you write something short, like a mini blog bio, or even just repost something you've already written! If it's not something you are interested in, I completely understand! Either way, have a great day! :)

    1. Chelsea! I would love to do this for you!! Just let me know what you are looking for, and when you would like it by! I don't think I could have it to you by tomorrow, but maybe next week!? Thanks for stopping by! I am your newest follower too!

  2. You live in Arizona and haven't been to the Grand Canyon! I'll definitely let you know when I get there - we can go down on the mules! If you ever come to Boston, let me know, too - although there's nothing as exciting as the Grand Canyon here.

    1. I know Susan, isn't it crazy!! I am still about four or five hours away from the Grand Canyon though. When I think about going on vacation, we went to Orange County before kids. Now, with kids, we are usually going on trips to see family during the summer. My husband did talk about making a weekend out of it, and going some time this year so I'll let you know if we end up going!

  3. Well I enjoyed reading that. The Breakfast Club and Pretty those too.I wish I was more of a planner and more organized. One again, I bought myself a planner. But the problem is, I forget that I have it most of the time. So, either things do not get written down, or I forget to pull it out to see what HAS been written. Sigh.

  4. You and I share the same taste in our hopes and dreams for the bucket list! I too, am more of a listener than a talker, unless it's about something I feel strongly about!

    You could not pay me to watch a Saw movie. I would never sleep again! :)

    Hoping you get some well-deserved rest. It is hard with little ones.
