1. I celebrated my 32nd birthday this week. I was overwhelmed by all of sweet gestures from my friends and family. *Feeling so blessed!* I was brave enough to have my students guess how old I was turning. Their guesses ranged from 23-100! :)
2. I created these adorable Valentine's for my little loves at school... and the ones below for my children.
3. My team and I started planning our Seuss week... and I found several new Seuss ideas on Pinterest. :)
4. My students created these beautiful hearts by using bingo dotters on coffee filters.
5. I continued meeting new blogging friends through a Love Notes Link up I am hosting. It has been so much fun getting to read more about other teachers!
I thought it would be fun to host a
little “Love Notes” Link Up. It’s February and time to share all of the LOVES
in your life.
a post with your “love notes” and link up!! It will be a super fun way to get
to know more teacher bloggers... and provide some fun reading for the last full month of Winter!

What are your favorite hobbies or what do you enjoy doing during your free time?
Being a mom!!!! I know this isn't a "hobby" but I really enjoy spending most of my free time with my children Scott and Madilynn. We love hiking, dancing (*our dance parties are getting serious now that Santa brought a disco ball and Scott deejays on his ipod, ha!*), going on adventures to the zoo, children's museum, King's Island, playing games (we play one every night and are currently obsessed with Uno), and just spending time together. Children grow up too fast and I am just enjoying every minute with them!
I also love going to cardio boxing, cooking for family and friends, blogging, photography, traveling, and shopping at Target.
My favorite "couples" destination is Hawaii. Mike and I went went we were first married. It was gorgeous, relaxing, and romantic!
My favorite family destination is Naples Beach or Disney World.

See what I mean about growing up fast - this picture makes me want to cry my eyes out. ;)

I have SOOOOOO much fun with my friends who love me for ME!

Most rewarding part of teaching? Helping children fall in love with books, watching their growth in writing, and seeing all of their smiles and eagerness to learn. What are you known for?

I love to laugh.
