Excited for the First Day!

So thanks to everyone who has made it over to my new blog so far. I know I'm breaking rules by posting twice in one day....but I've had so much stuff I wanted to share and link up that I decided today I would do 2.

I was awarded the Versatile Blogger award by Learning In Spain! Thank you so much!

Here are the rules for the award:
Thank the blogger who nominated you & include a link to their site
2. Include the award image in your post
3. Nominate five other bloggers for this award, tell them they've been nominated & include a link
to their site
4. Share seven random facts about yourself

Facts about me:
1. I love football. I can't wait for football season to start (Go UNC!).
2. I live in the south and I love sweet tea. It drives me crazy when I travel and I have to drink soda (because I rarely drink it) because they don't have sweet tea.
3. I have played softball since I was 5 years old and I still play for a recreation league.
4. I like computer games.
5. I love to travel. I have been to many great places and I am always looking for a new adventure.
6. When I graduated from college (the first time) I spent the summer teaching kindergarten in Costa Rica.
7. Since I've graduated from high school (10 years ago) I've only not been in college for a total of 2 semesters. This is the first summer in the past 4 years that I have not taken a summer school class. I love school and would be a professional student if that was a job or if someone would pay me to go to school. Or at least pay my mortgage for me. My husband is ready for me to finish this round of school and then hopefully take a break for a semester or year. 

Blogs that I have nominated for the award:
First Grade Fingerprints (she is also having a giveaway right now so check it out)
Learning Is Something To Treasure (also has a great giveaway going on right now)
005 Watkin's Way
Joy of Life 2011

I have also linked up with this month's current from Oh Boy 4th Grade

There is another giveaway going on as well. "Teachin' Little Texans" is celebrating having 50 followers so go check it out!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic July 4th! Don't forget to check out my giveaway!
