My First Award(s)

I received my first award today from Katherine, over at Blessed to Teach. Thank you Katherine, that was so sweet of you!
This award is named for the german word "Liebster", which translates to  "beloved" or "favorite" and is given to a "new, up and coming blogger".

Here are the rules:
1. Link back to person who gave it to you
2. Post the award to your blog.
3.Give the award to at least 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers.
4.Leave a comment on the five blogs to let them know that they have been offered the award.

Not only did I receive one award, I received TWO! So here is the next award. I received this from Amy at Adventures in Teaching, by the way I love that blog name, so cute!

This award has a little more work to it than the first one.

Versatile Blogger Award:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Include a link to their site.
3. Include the award image in your post.
4. Give 7 random facts about yourself. 
  • I am in love with The Beatles. It's true, I have a collection of Beatles memorabilia and I keep adding to it. My favorite Beatles is George Harrison.
  •   I love to be crafty. I have three Cricuts!! I love making cards, scrapbook layouts, and things for my classroom.
  • I am obsessed with owls. Anything that has an owl on it, you know I will be buying! I went to Pottery Barn kids just to buy my new lunch box this year and yes it does have owls all over it.
  • I am secretly still a kid at heart, but aren't we all? I love watching Disney movies, coloring, and singing children's songs. It's a good thing I went into teaching. Now I have an excuse, hehe!
  • I can't go without painting my toe nails. Even in the winter when my toes never make an appearance, I have to have them painted. When I have time and I'm not too lazy, I like to match my pedicure with my manicure. I will change them every week depending on my mood. Once I did zebra print when we took a field trip to the zoo. We had a vote in my class to see if I would do zebra or cheetah, zebra won. ;-)
  • My car has to be spotless. I cannot stand driving in a car that has trash all over it. It doesn't bother me if it's not my car, but I'm a very organized person and I tend to loose things easily. Hence the reason why I have to be organized. So keeping my car clean is just one less worry. Now if only I could keep my classroom as clean...
  • I've actually been blogging since 2009, but I never felt confident enough to share it with anyone. Now I figured, why not it's fun! 
5. Nominate 5-10 other bloggers, include their link, and let them know. 

I am nominating the following blogs for both of these awards:

Blessed to Teach
Mrs. A's Room
Adventures in Teaching
Teaching Little Apples


  1. Thank you for the awards Jenn!! I really appreciate it!

    I think I would die without Pinterest! lol!

    Also, "Where do teachers go for tips? Teacher Tipster.com" LOVE him. If you haven't already you should follow him on FB. :)


    1. Man, I get that song stuck in my head all the time!!

  2. Thanks so much for the awards! I am a Cricut newbie, so I'm learning a lot! My babysitter actually GAVE me her old one (the one that does 6"x12"), which was awesome, because I really had no idea about them. Now I LOVE IT! I made all my son's birthday decorations/banners with it, and they turned out awesome. Do you have a recommendation for a good font cartridge? I want to cut out some vinyl letters/phrases, mainly for my classroom. :)

    Thanks again, and I'm your newest follower! Oh, and I love your blog design!
