Versatile Blogger Award!

I was sooo excited when Elyse from Life with a Cherry on Top awarded me the Versatile Blogger award! Thanks Elyse! If you aren't already reading her blog, you should definitely go read it! She's super fun!! :)

Here are the rules for this award:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Include a link to their site.
3. Include the award image in your post.
4. Give 7 random facts about yourself.
5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.
6. When nominating, include a link to their site.
7. Let other bloggers know they've been nominated.

7 Random Facts About Me:

1.  I was born in Cincinnati, OH and despite having lived in Virginia for the past 20-some years, people STILL tell me they can hear a "mid-west" accent when I say certain words. Too funny! I don't hear it at all, haha...

2.  I LOVE pasta or any type of Italian food! I would eat some type of pasta every single day, (actually I sort of do...!) Ha! 

Homemade Rotini---absolutely one of my favorite foods to eat! :) 

3.  I am obsessed with reading! I am constantly reading and often have several books I'm reading at one time. Some of my favorite authors are Nicholas Sparks and Mary Higgins Clark. Also, I get a lot of my new book recommendations from my teenage cousins, who introduced me to the Matched and Divergent series. Haha--well, at least I'm reading the same books as my students. 

4. I have bright red hair, blue eyes, super pale skin and tons of freckles. I also get asked on a fairly regular basis by random people when I moved to the US from Ireland. Ummm, wouldn't I have an Irish accent if I was from Ireland? (Hmm, that would actually be pretty cool!) Hah..

My skin looks even paler than normal here--yikes! Also, I  get sunburned on cloudy days if I'm not careful... ( Boo!!

5.  In August, I will be starting my FIFTH year of teaching and my fifth year of teaching sixth grade--wow! Funny story: when I first began my teaching license and master's program, my friend Holly and I swore up and down that 6th grade was the ONE elementary grade we never wanted to teach. (She was afraid the curriculum would be hard (not really true) and I was afraid the students would all be taller than me, which is unfortunately true...lol!!) Little did I know where I'd end up a few years later! :)

6. Related to my last random fact, I am 4'11 and can relate to SO MANY of the short people problems I see all over Pinterest. I'm the shortest in my family and many of my much younger cousins are now taller than me! Sad! Oh well...
