Another Award! So Exciting!

I just received my second blog award!  Thank you Cindy over at Hop N Dots Teaching Blog for nominating me for The Versatile Blogger award.  I am very honored to have received this award and I am excited to tell you a little bit more about myself.  
So now I need to tell you seven random facts about myself and then choose 5 awesome blogs that I found. 

 Here goes nothing
1. I was born and raised in New Jersey but I moved to Florida to start my teaching career.  My life literally changed in one week.  I had my interview with my principal on a Friday and was hired on the spot!  I flew back home that Sunday to tell my parents I am moving out and starting my career a thousand miles away from home.  Oh and I was to start my new job in one week.  So I found an apartment here in Florida, moved here knowing absolutely NO ONE.  I like to think this was a brave move for my young self at 23 years of age.  Oh and to top off my life changing week, my fiancĂ© was living in NJ and had his career going in full swing.  He gave it all up to follow me to Florida for our Happily Ever After!

2.  My fiancĂ© who so gladly gave up a lot to follow me to Florida is now my husband of 5 years.  We got married on 7-07-07.  We love enjoying life as a couple.  We just bought a beautiful home last August and our life is in full swing.  I cant wait to see what our relationship holds for us in the future.

3. I am a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE Eagles fan!  I love the Philadelphia Eagles and I try to never miss a game. 

4.   I actually like working out most of the time.  This year I have tried to really start to take care of myself.  I am not a crazy watch what I eat and burn that many calories a day doing crazy exercises kind of person.   But I do enjoy going to the gym to get a little work out in. 

5. I am a little bit of a clean freak. 

6. I love Zac Brown Band.  I will be seeing them in concert in October for the second time.

7. Jobs before teaching: Chick-fil-a cashier, Carlton cards manager, Ritas Water Ice manager, and Head Teller at Commerce Bank (Now TD bank).  I worked at both Ritas and Carlton cards since I was 16 up until I was 22.   What can I say; I am a creature of habit.  

Here are Five awesome Blogs I found (Check them out):
