Two New Blog Awards!

Kaitlyn from Smiles and Sunshine has given me two awards!! The first is the Liebster Blog Award!

The award goes to blogs with less than 200 followers and here are the rules for the award:
  1. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
  2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you and link back to them. - THANK YOU KAITLYN!!!
  3. Reveal your top 5 picks for the Liebster Blog Award and pass it on to them by leaving a comment on their blog. - Sorry I'm only going to be able to leave 3 because I need to get to bed so I can get better!  I can't kick this cold :o(
My Top 3 Picks are....

Layla from Fancy Free in Fourth

Fancy Free in Fourth
Emily from I Love My Classroom


The second award is the Versatile Blogger Award!  I also received this award from Sarah at Teaching Star Students (double honor)!  Here are the rules for this award:

  1. Thank the blogger who gave you the award. (Again, THANK YOU KAITLYN AND SARAH!)
  2. Include a link to their site. (Smiles and Sunshine and Teaching Star Students - def check them out)
  3. Include the award image.
  4. Give 7 random facts about yourself.
  5. Nomiante 15 other bloggers for the award.
  6. When nominating include a link to their site.
  7. Let other bloggers know they've been nominated!
Seve random facts about mysef:  Hmmmm...

1. I like bald cupcakes (not a big icing girl) and consider them on the same level as a muffin in the morning, lol, yes I'm well aware they are not but a girl can dream!

2. My birthday is on Valentine's Day.

3. If I couldn't be a teacher I would want to be a professional book reader... They have those right?  Well on Amazon, I always see people say "Amazon sent me this book to read and leave a review so here it is."  That's what I want to do!!!!!  I'll even do it AND be a teacher :o)

4. As you can tell from above, I'm an avid book reader. I love all genres and have a really hard time letting any of them go (for space purposes).  Which is a plus with the Kindle, I don't have to!

5.  I love it when they say the title of a book/movie in the book/movie!

6.  I'm a huge history nerd, shh.

7.  I could watch old movies all day: Alfred Hitchcock, musicals, Cary Grant, Doris Day, and the list could go on.

I am going to have to apologize now on how many people I give this award to.  I'm battling a cold right now and am doing this from my sick bed :o(  But here are a few that I know deserve it!

Miss T from Journey of a Substitute Teacher
