I've Been Tagged!

Apparently, there is such a thing as blogger tag!  Mary Beth over at Run, Teacher, Run!  tagged me!  

Here are the rules:

1. You must post the rules. 
2. Post 12 fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create 12 new questions for the people you tagged.
4. Tag 12 people and link them on your post.
5. Let them know you've tagged them!

12 Fun Facts...
1. Like Mary Beth, I also like to run, although I've been too busy making teacher stuff lately!
2. I am a HUGE coffee lover!
3. I love chocolate even more than I love coffee!
4. If it were socially acceptable, I would wear pajamas 24/7.
5.  I drive a van that doubles as a closet.  If you need ANYTHING, it's probably in my van!
6.  I always complain about not having enough time to watch tv (I'm a big tv fan, as opposed to movies).  My husband laughs and proceeds to name the 6 or 7 shows that I DVR and watch on a regular basis!
7.  I am a huge Walgreens shopper.  I love their sales!
8.  I'm one of those "couponers" that everyone always hates getting stuck in line behind.  But, if you knew how much money I save, you'd do it, too!
9.  I have "food rules" that my family thinks are really funny.  For example, you MUST eat noodles with chopsticks.  If a hot dog has a bun, I have to eat it with mustard.  If there is no bun, I eat it with ketchup.
10. My computer goes everywhere with me.  
11.  I have a southern accent.  I have lived in Illinois long enough that it's usually not obvious.  But, when I go back home or talk to my mom on the phone, you can really hear it!  
12.  I have sooooo many books!  At home, at school, for me, for my kids, and on and on!  I just cannot resist buying a good book!

Here are the 12 questions that were left for me . . .

1. What is your favorite thing about the blogging world?
     Collaborating with other teachers is the best!
2. What is one thing you would tell a 1st year teacher?
     Always have a plan B (and sometimes a plan C)
3. If you could do whatever you wanted without going back to school, what would you choose?
     I would want to be in law enforcement.  
4. What is the best concert you've been to?
     Counting Crows (Like, a zillion years ago!)
5. When did you realize you wanted to be a teacher?
     A little late in life.  I was working on my doctorate in school psych and had to shadow the school psychologist.  He had a meeting and left me in a first grade classroom helping her cut out materials.  When he came back, I didn't want to leave!  
6. Who was your most inspiring teacher, and why?
     I was lucky enough to have several.  Mrs. Howard encouraged me to write.  Mr. Evans encouraged me to be creative.  Mrs. Johnson helped me navigate those awkward junior high years!
7. What is your favorite unit that you've created for TN or TpT or that you've bought?
    I LOVE my Word Work Packs.  I'm using them at home with my preschooler as she learns to read, as well as at school.  
8. Where do you like to shop for your teaching clothes?
    Kohl's and JC Penny.  
9. How do you use parents in your classroom?
     We have parents come in to help with art projects and parties.  
10. What is your favorite holiday to celebrate in your classroom?
     Valentine's Day!  Yay!
11. What is the best date you've been on?  
     When my husband proposed to me!  We went out for a practice run the day before my first marathon.   
12. What is one thing you'd change about your house, apartment, town home, etc.?
     I have always wanted a house that had red trim on the outside.   

Here are my questions for the bloggers I tag . . .

3.  What's your favorite grown-up book?
4.  What's the funniest thing that ever happened to you?
