Teacher Week 14': WHO

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.

My 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. :)
Oh & grab a FREEBIE HERE !


  1. Your blog is super cute! Congrats on the baby girl! That is so exciting! And to be pregnant with your best friend is awesome. My bff tried to convince me to take the plunge when she started trying but I just wasn't ready yet : )

    The Sassy Sub

    1. Thanks so much!!! Yeah she wasn't ready either but I am glad it happened when it did. :) I know... selfish me but she is happy too. lol. Thanks for stopping by.


  2. Congrats on your little blessing! She will be perfect! I hope I have a best friend pregnant when I am pregnant too - how perfect! Good luck in grade 4.

    My Carolina Classroom

    1. Thanks so much Kristin. It's funny how a good amount of people happen to get pregnant at the same time. It must have been the water in our school because 4 other teachers on my hall at my school are pregnant too.
