Awards! Yay me! (so proud!)

Wow! I am sooooo honored....I can't even speak (type) properly! I was awarded 3 awards in one day! I am fairly new (just about 3 months) to blogging and I am in LOVE with it! To have someone think I deserve an award makes me all teary! I was jumping and hollering and telling everyone who would listen (and many who wouldn't...LOL). its my turn to pass it along! Bear with me while I figure this out!

My First Award is the "Versatile Blogger" from Shernika at Threadgill's Teaching Toolbox ! I can't thank Shernika enough! She is soooo sweet and has an awesome blog! Be sure to check it out!

OK....Here go the random facts:
  • I have 9 tattoos....I am addicted :) (My students have no idea :))
  • I went into labor on the 4th of July....22 years ago :)
  • Everyone in my family has a tiny base clef tattoo (except my 12 yr old daughter, of course) We are a very musical family :)
  • 3 of my 4 awesome children have college degrees!! (and 1 is a teacher!!)
  • I make a veggie lasagna that is to die for!! :)
  • We buried our pet hamster, Stewie, with pieces of dark chocolate (they were his fav....long story...but that didn't kill him)
  • My fav candy is Hot Tamales....not the fire ones...just the regular ones :)
Shernika also nominated me for the "One Lovely Blog" Award :)  Like I said....the girl is TOO MUCH! (And this was even before my swanky new look!!!) I hope she still likes me with the new one :)

Hilary over at Fifth Grade Fancy also nominated me for these award!s Let me just say about this woman....she has been here for me from the start! She is the sweetest thing!
