Won my first blog giveaway!

I am new to the blogging world and so when I came across and saw that they were having their very first giveaway of a beautiful bracelet from their etsy shop ( I entered immediately!

And, I just found out I won! :)

There is something about being the "winner" of something that makes me feel like a little kid....I can't wait to get the bracelet in my mailbox and wear it!

Thanks again creativeflydesignz!

3rd Grade!

I finally got my student teaching assignment!

Good news is: it is at the school I wanted (only 9 blocks from my place!), it is with the teacher I requested (woo hoo!), and it is with the cutest little 3rd graders. I don't start "officially" student teaching until the beginning of October but I went in on their first day of school and met all the little kiddies.

I am excited and nervous!

Any other teachers out there with some words of wisdom?!

Addicted to Etsy

I think I need to give myself a specific amount of "Etsy time" a day. I recently joined and set up my shop ( and just spent all day, and I mean ALL day, re-doing/editing my entire shop based upon the amazing feedback I have recieved from fellow Estians. :) I am really happy with the new look and hope people like my picture frames!

Now I am hungry.

5k and Ice Cream

Today I ran a 5k...
and it was actually fun! A few people from the bootcamp I go to talked me into it. My time was 26:11. Pretty good for my first time running any type of race. I even convinced the boyfriend to come cheer me on at 8am!

And just now...
I canceled out the benefits of running by eating a half a thing of ice cream (but hey, it was soy ice cream!).
