Thanks A Bunch!

Awww! A big thank you to blogger Barbara over at Grade ONEderful for awarding me the Versatile Blogger Award. I feel so honoured to have gotten more than 50 followers in such a short time! I hope you find some useful things on my blog. I like to create and share, so take what you need! :)

As part of the awards, we're supposed to say seven things about ourselves and then pass the Versatile Blogger Award to 15 recently discovered blogs.

Well, let's start with seven random things about me in no particular order:

1. I love to scrapbook. I wish I had more time for it though!

2. I love love LOVE slurpees. Dr. Pepper is my favourite.

3. I am a bit of an organizational freak in the classroom, but my house is a disaster. 

4. My best friend is my aunty (who is actually two years younger than me!) She is an AMAZING teacher and talented musician.

5. I have two cats named Oscar (orange tabby) and Ashley (black long-haired). I also have a chocolate lab named Bella. She is only 4 months old and a big bundle of energy!

6. My favourite TV shows are Glee, Grey's Anatomy, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Criminal Minds, and The Office. I'm loving these new shows too though: New Girl, Prime Suspect, Free Agents, and Up All Night.

7. I stay up way too late most nights... even school nights!!

I have given out the Versatile Blogger Award here to these amazing blogs. Some I have just started following, others are what started the addiction. They are all amazing and inspiring! Thanks everyone :)
