Tell Me More!

Hi everybody!
I feel like I have been out of the loop for the past few days! I had a long (but wonderful) weekend. A wedding on Friday and my grandmother's 78th (woo hoo) birthday on Sunday. Crazy but well worth it. I am looking forward to the last day of summer school and a week of break before it is the new school year!!!! My goodness that just snuck up on me!
Anyway, I plan since it is almost the school year, I am planning on posting things about my classroom management system (no, it's not a clip chart, gasp!), classroom organizational things and more classroom photos. For today, I am linking up with Mrs. Lemons for here Tell Me More Linky Party

I am copying Miss Kindergarten's way and giving you the ABCs of me...

A- Age: 27. I know, I know, I'm not old but I am having a really hard time with my age this year. I keep telling people that I'm 25 again. I just don't want to be a grown up.
B-Bed size: California King! I LOVE it! My husband doesn't care too much about the size because no matter how big the bed, I still take up 80% of it! 
Absolutely us!
C-Chore you hate: I don't like doing any and all chores but dishes are definitely my worst enemy! For some reason, I ALWAYS get my shirt all wet and ruin a manicure!
D-Dogs: My puppy is now 9 years old! My hubby gave him to me for Christmas when he was just "the boyfriend." He surprised me with a gift bag and said, "Open it." I said, "Aw, thank you, I'll open it later." He said, "No, just do it now." He handed me the bag and out popped this little fur ball! Sully came out of the bag and threw up on the floor. Merry Christmas! lol.
Meet Sully
E-Essential to start your day: Silence, I'm not a morning person! lol.
F-Favorite color: Purple. Always has been. 
G-Gold or silver: White gold! lol. 
H-Height: Short. My school is a K-8 school and most of those 6-8 grade kids are taller than me! 
I-Instruments you play: I play great drums on Rock Band! 
J-Job title: Kindergarten teacher!
K-kids: none yet! 
L-Live: The best place on Earth, CALIFORNIA!
M-My mom's name: Mom, duh! 
N- Nicknames: Nessa. My cousins all called me Ness or Nessa when we were kids now my nephew is starting to say Nessa and I LOOOOOVVVEE it!! Vanessa is just too many syllables and sounds to say for a 2 year old.
O-Overnight hospital stay: I have had a couple overnight stays in a hospital but never for myself. Thank goodness. 
P-Pet peeves: loud chewing, crunching or smacking food for all to hear. Seriously, it drives me insane! I can't even watch the Kit Kat commercials that have their theme song in crunches, it's so gross! People who chew ice, please stay across the room! lol. 
Q-Quote from a movie: "Be cool, huh?" -Danny Zuko
R-Right/lefty: I write with my right hand.
S- Siblings: I have 2 younger sisters. My youngest sister has the cutest baby boy. The first grandchild AND first boy (besides my dad and my husband). Needless to say, he's spoiled rotten! 
Making funny faces at my husband.
His favorite thing to do! Isn't he a doll?
T-Time you wake up: Well, my alarm goes off at 5:15 but I usually wake up at 6am! I love sleeping more than I love waking. lol. 
U-Underwear: What? Yes? I'm not sure how to respond to this. hahaha.
V-Veggies you dislike: ummm.... brussel sprouts! My mother always told us that we had to try it before saying we don't like it. My sisters and I like veggies so we never really broke this rule with veggies but I remember spitting out brussel sprouts right onto my plate and saying, "Ok, I tried it."
W-What makes you run late: My husband! I have always been very punctual, mostly because my father is a stickler about punctuality but my husband can never seem to be on time for anything!! It drives my crazy. I have resorted to lying about what times we actually have to be places and now my friends are doing that to me because of him! ugh! I even lied to him about what time to arrive at the church on our wedding day, that's how late he is to everything! Luckily, he really wanted to marry me so he showed up on time, well, the made up time. lol. 
My favorite picture. It's just so sweet.
X-X-rays you've had: At the dentist. Man, I hate the dentist. 
Y-Yummy food you make: I make desserts! All kinds... 
Z-Zoo animal: OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH, I LOVE the zoo!! It is seriously my favorite. I love to animal watch. Animals just fascinate me.

Well that's me.


  1. I love the ABC's idea :) I too hate doing the dishes. I will let them pile up into the sink and do them as a very last resort.

    Oh my goodness. My husband makes us later for EVERYTHING!!!! I too have told him a different time we have to be places because of how late he is. He did show up to our wedding in plenty of time so that was a good thing :)

    1. Ha! That is so funny! I'm glad I'm not the only one!

  2. What a cute idea (ABC's about you).I also work at a K-8 center and almost all the middle schoolers tower over me! And I like to trick myself too in staying asleep (alarm goes off at 5:30, but usually I wake up at 6)


    1. It's one of the reasons why I could never teach middle school, they are just too tall! haha.
