Tell Me More Linky party....

I have been blogging since February so I feel still like a "newbie" in the blogging world.  I have become a better teacher since I began blogging.  I am so thankful for all of the great ideas I have learned over these past few months.  .... I also enjoy reading everyone's posts about their life outside of the classroom.  We are all teachers.. but we also have beautiful families, friends, and other interests outside of the classroom.  I LOVE hearing about them from all of you.  So I couldn't wait to link up with Mrs. Lemons at Step into Second Grade for her Tell Me More Linky.  
Here are some things about me...

1. I rarely go to the movies...... I can not sit still that long.  I would rather watch a movie in the comfort of my own home so that I can get up, move around, and work on something while I am watching the movie.  Sad, I know.  It frustrates my kids and husband.  ( We did see the new Spiderman movie as a family, and my youngest did a much better job at sitting still in the movie theater that I did.)

2. I am a bit of a hypocrite when it comes to the subject of curly hair.  My daughter has beautiful curly hair.  She Hates it.  Actually she even wishes for a different hair color.    I often remind her how beautiful she is.  BUT then what do I do?   I color my hair ( to cover my gray) and straighten my curly hair with a flat iron.  I have even gone as far as to have a keratin treatment done on my hair to tame the curls.  ( I wasn't born with curls... I inherited them after the birth of my youngest child.)

3. I LOVE to run.  I am a SLOW runner ( 9 minute mile) and run between 3-4 miles a day, but I LOVE it.  I used to HATE it, and even went as far as to tell my husband who is an avid runner that ( God didn't create me to run.)   It helps alleviate stress, and helps me sleep better at night.  :)

4.  I often reread my blog posts and second guess myself several times before ever actually publishing a post.  My biggest worry ( Will this post be helpful to anyone?)...

5.  I scare very easily.  I do not like horror movies.  I even have a hard time watching " Ghost Stories" with my husband.  I think this is one of his favorite shows.    I am also terrified of storms.  I have been through a few tornadoes, and the sound of hail or  wind has me shaking in my shoes.

6.  I LOVE to see my kiddos smile.  It brings me such great joy.  There's nothing like a smile that spreads from ear to ear.

7. I get so emotional over inspiring stories.  My family is used to me shedding a tear or two after hearing an emotional story.  

8. I LOVE to watch sports.  My favorite team is the St. Louis Cardinals and any team that my kiddos play for.

9. My idea of relaxing is heading to the pool to soak up some sunshine or curling up with a good book.  I LOVE to read!

10. The first time I ever met my husband was at church.

Don't forget to link up with Mrs. Lemons at Step Into Second Grade.  I can't wait to read more about everyone.

I always get scared I'm going to make a typo. I've learned it's ok to make mistakes!

I took some kids to go see A Dolphins Tale last week. I was holding back tears the WHOLE time! Between the hurt dolphin, a little girl in a wheel chair, and a hurt army veteran; I was a teary eyed mess!

Oh my goodness your first one is so me. I cannot sit still anywhere. Today during church my hubby said he thought I was going to break out into convulsions because I was moving so much. I am just a mover and don't like sitting still for too long. I would so much rather be in my jammies at my home to watch a movie so that I can do something else while watching the movie if I want.

Oh my goodness, I can't sit through a movie either! Even at home, I get distracted and wander away. Drives my husband crazy!

I'm loving number 9! I've been a total pool junkie and can read an entire book in one afternoon!

I REALLY wished I liked to run. I heard that if you just ever get started and get into it, you enjoy it more. Ugh.
