Let's Talk About Me Monday

It's teacher week! Wohoo! Monday is all about ME!

1.  I have two precious pups named Walter and Emmett.  Emmett is the older and wiser guy, he is 5 years old and we have had him for 4 years.  Walter is probably 2 years old and we just got him at May.  The local Humane Society has a mobile adoption center that was at the opening day of our farmer's market.  After texting my husband a picture of Walter and dragging him there to meet him, we knew that we couldn't leave without him.  Walter fits in with the family perfectly!
Meet Emmett and Walter!
2. I started running recently with the Couch25K app.  After completing a few 5k races, I have upgraded to the 10k program.  I don't LOVE running but I love how I feel after I finish.  I am lucky that I live in a great neighborhood where we have fun running together.

3. My husband is a HUGE Seattle Sounders fan.  He loves all things football (soccer) and loves living in a city that celebrates it as much as he does.  He has turned me into quite a fan too- we don't have season tickets but we try to go to as many games as we can.  I have so much fun in the packed stadium singing along with everyone! :)

4.  My husband is in graduate school studying Museology.  He gets to play with fun artifacts and study in museums! I am really proud of him!
Here he is leading a discussion at the local community college
5.  We are thinking of trying to buy a house but that means we would have to commit to a city!  Both my husband and I are wanderers so although we want to own instead of rent for the rest of our lives, deciding what city we are going to live in is a big challenge!

6.  I spend a ton of time watching the Real Housewives.  I love the women of New Jersey.  I can't wait to find out what is going to happen with Theresa!

7.  I have been a pinterest fanatic for a while now.  You can follow me here!  Most recently I have been learning how to wear make-up.  I have always worn make-up but I just kind of slapped it on my face, not really knowing how to do anything with it.  This weekend I practiced using bronzer and highlighter to contour my face.  Not sure if it actually works or not- but it is fun.  
New haircut and a lot of make-up to look like a little

8.  I am crazy organized at school but once I get home I am so tired I have a hard time staying on top of everything! My house looks completely different in the summer because I have time to get organized!  My friends know that in the summer they can drop by anytime but once school starts- they either need to call or be prepared to stand around while I shove everything into the bedroom!

9.  I love shopping but never buy anything.  I need to have people with me to convince me to buy things, otherwise I wont do it.  Even things I need.  It is strange.

10. I blog stalk- a lot! I hope to do more posting myself and leaving more comments so that I am not a stranger! :)

So that's my 10 things- now go and write yours! Be sure to link up at Blog Hoppin' and be ready for the rest of the fun things for teacher week!


  1. Maybe next year you can run the Rock and Roll! :)

  2. I'm so glad to hear that someone else has organizational problems at home during the school year. My classroom looks MUCH different than my house during the school year. And don't worry....I don't ever buy anything either when I "shop".

  3. Hi! I found your blog through Blog Hoppin’ Teacher Week! The summer went too fast and I cannot believe it is that time of year again!

    I am a beginning runner too...I ran a couple of 5K's this year and I am training for a 10K too. Which plan are you following?

  4. I loved reading about your comments! I found your blog through another blog!

    Love your make-up, I probably should be checking that on pinterest too - but it's more fun to search organisational tips!
