7 things about myself:

1. I'm addicted to reality TV.  Top Chef, Jersey Shore, Hoarders, Teen Mom, Real Housewives...seriously addicted.

2. I was published in the Mailbox Magazine for a literacy/math idea.  Kinda exciting!!

7. My husband proposed to me in my classroom in 2003.  I was teaching Kindergarten and he had me read a book to my kids.  The last page was a typewritten note from husby himself.  When I looked up from reading, he was down on one knee asking me to marry him!

  2. Awe..thanks Cara. You have to go read my blog. Look what I made. I have to stay away from that little domestic blog of yours or I'm going to weight 500 pounds.

  3. My hubby proposed to me in my classroom too! He works in federal law enforcement and was giving my class a presentation about the three branches of government. He was showing the kids what happens when they interrogate, and he "interrogated" me with handcuffs on.... and with the question of, "Will you marry me?" Love it!
