I Love Weekends

Uff da!  I am so glad the week is over.  Something got into my kiddos yesterday and they were wild!  I have a new kiddo starting Monday so it's the perfect opportunity to go over the rules and expectations *smile*.

It's Saturday night and I am at home, wrapped up in a blanket drinking tea.  It is 14 and snowing outside *sigh*,

I was super excited to get the. . . . . . .

{seriously - I did a little happy dance}

The rules for this reward are as follows:
1. Thank the person(s) who presented the award to you and link back to them.
Laura at 

Holly at

Stephanie at

and Desiree at

2. Tell seven things about yourself.
1.) I have not had a Diet Pepsi since Monday {or any soda at all}.  I'm trying this whole "no processed, no preservatives" thing and I typically drink at least 2 a day.  Amazingly, no headaches.
2.) I work 2 jobs.  Obviously I teach Kindergarten, but I also tutor 3 days a week at one of those chain tutoring places.
3.) I was hired on a Friday night and was on a plane to Alaska by Wednesday and started work on Thursday.
4.) I love Twilight, like seriously *love*.  I've been to Forks, Washington and went on a tour people {it made my fan-girl heart squee}
5.) At some point I want to do my National Boards, just trying to pay off some debt first.
6.) I took 8 years to get my BA.  I went to Community College and got my A.A, then worked for a couple of years before I went back.  I then worked full time {teaching preschool and running a daycare} while taking a full course load.
7.) I have a tattoo and nose ring, I've also had blue and purple streaks in my hair.  My reward for losing 50 pounds is going to be a white tattoo that says "shine" on my wrist.

3. Pass this on to 15 newly discovered blogs and let them know they've received the award.
I tried to find blogs that hadn't already received the award
