It's that time for Teacher Week 2014 hosted by the gals @ Blog Hoppin... So make sure you check out all the great posts & link up.
Today is Who Monday so I will tell ya a little about myself.
I feel like I am always saying this but if it's your 1st visit to my blog then it'll be new to you... I am a Mississippi girl who is now living in Alberta, Canada (thanks to my Canadian husband). I have been living in Canada for 2 years now. I love it here (with the exception of winters...brrr.. I hate the cold!) but I do really miss home, especially the warm weather & beach. My little princess daschund & I have survived the last 2 winters though.
spoiled rotten precious Emma Lou will no longer be the #1 princess of our house come September 2nd. We will have a new princess though her name is undecided at this time. We have a few names in mind but we are waiting until we meet her to decide for sure. I am impatiently anxiously awaiting her arrival.
A sneak peek at our maternity photo session came out today. YAY! I know maternity photos are so cheesy but it's nice to have a decent photo of me prego since being prego makes me feel fat & yucky.
This awesome dude is my baby's daddy...aka hubby. LOL! I am so lucky to have him. We have been married for
three 2 years (I think). I am awful with remembering dates. My bad. It will be interesting to see how we survive this parenting journey.
And I am SUPER excited about this little surprise!!! If you have a best friend that you did everything with through college & in your young adult lives then you will completely understand... It seems as though God knew we wouldn't survive pregnancy without going through it together. :)
My BFF is also prego!!! Ahhhh! Words cannot explain how excited I was when I found out. Her little boy will arrive just 2 months after our girl so she already has an arranged boyfriend. Ha ha... I cannot wait for him to arrive so I can give him lots of hugs & kisses. Our soon-to-be little family will be flying down to Mississippi in November to see this little dude make his appearance.
I have also met some pretty sweet girlfriends up here in Canada since last year. These ladies help keep my sane through the winter & the times when I miss my home, family & friends most.

As for teaching I have a BIG change this year & it's not the baby. I will no longer be teaching kindergarten (sad face). I am teaching grade 4 this year. Eekkk! I am super excited but nervous for sure. I think it will be a bit of a challenge since it's so new for me & I feel like such a big change from my little sweet kinders. On a plus side- no more tying shoes, buttoning up coats or worrying about bathroom emergencies. lol. I know I will love it but change is a little scary. I find it a little more scary since I will not be going into the classroom until January after Christmas break due to maternity leave for the 1st 4 months. This will be my 2nd year teaching in Canada. I taught kindergarten last year here in Alberta & in Mississippi I taught kindergarten for 2 years & 1st grade for half a year.
I can not wait to see all the classroom setups tomorrow!!! It's one of my favourite days to Teacher Week. I just get so inspired & so many great ideas. Don't forget to go link up so I can read all about you & check out your fabulous classroom dig tomorrow. :)
