These are a Few of My Favorite Things

Spring Break is quickly coming to an end, and I am quickly beginning to realize that I need to get myself into gear and prepare for the next three weeks.  You see....we are in crunch time to The TEST!  Ahhhhhh!!!  I know that I have tried my hardest to get them ready, the standards have been my bible, but 5th grade is really a hard test year (all of those odd years are) and it is just so unpredictable. 

teaching in room 6, blog, upper grade blog, 5th gradeBut I digress.  Since it is still Spring Break, I thought I would relax just a bit and link up with Latoya at Flying into First Grade and play "Let's Get Acquainted".  Admittedly, I am late to the party here.  Latoya has been having this linky for quite some time now, and I have learned a great deal about my fellow bloggers....but I have never joined in....until now.

So without further ado, My Favorite Things.

Favorite Shop

I seriously can not get enough of Target.  If I could live there, I probably would.  It is one of those stores that I can't walk out of without spending at least $150.  Crazy.  But oh so good!

Favorite Show

Oh television, how do I love thee?  Let me count the ways.....There really are so many shows that I can't live without.  Each day I have at least one in fact.  But right now, if I had to pick one, it would be The Walking Dead.  I just get so engrossed in it, like the world actually surrounds me.  It is just so so so so good.  Appointment TV for sure.

Favorite Sweet

Chocolate.  "nuff said.

Favorite Blogger be fair, this isn't on the list, but I just had to include it.  I mean, what is a blogging list of favorites without including my favorite peers?  I really have too many to include here, but here are 5 that I adore (I also adore the bloggers behind those amazing ideas they put out into the teaching universe)

Favorite New Development

My life has been moving forward in such great directions lately.  I have already told you about our move (which was desperately needed...our family of 4 simply could not live in our 900 sq ft house any longer)  I am so stoked about it and am loving the new (twice the size) house already.  But the second new development is reason that I have been slacking lately at this thing called blogging and the Quarter 4s of the math homework for both 4th and 5th grade are just not finished.  I just have not been feeling like myself lately...tired and icky most of the time.  I couldn't bring myself to sit in front of a computer for very long as it made me feel nauseous.  However, I am now starting to put that all behind me and get myself I think it is time to tell you all why I have been so scarce (and slacking) lately.  Meet the newest development in Room 6.

We will officially meet this little one this fall.  But until then, develop away little one!

  23. Congratulations on your new little one! I also LOVE Target and the bloggers you listed :) Neat fact - The Walking Dead is filmed VERY close to where we live. My hubby has gone to watch it when they are filming and we know several of the extras :) It's really neat to see one of our favorite towns transform into a t.v. set.

  24. Congratulations!!! I'm so happy for you!!

  25. Congrats! Such a wonderful blessing!
