My Obsessions Linky Party

Bonnie at Living a Wonderful Life is having a Linky Party called  My Obsessions!

Here are a few of my current obsessions:

Roll Tide Roll!

My husband and stepdad say that they have never met two women who were more obsessed with football than my mom and I. You know the stereotype of the man sitting in front of the TV on Saturdays and Sundays drinking beer and eating wings... screaming to the top of their lungs? Well that's my mom and I!

2. Reality Shows
Right now I have a plethora of reality shows that I DVR and watch religiously!
Real Housewives of Atlanta
Real Housewives of Orange County
Keeping up with the Kardashians
Big Rich Texas
Teen Mom

3. My iPhone
Anywhere I am.. I have my phone with me at all times. You never know when your going to NEED to play Angry Birds or Draw Something really quick or look someone up on Facebook, heck you may even need to make a call here and there. 

4. The Beach
Every since I can remember my family has taken at least one beach trip a year. I love everything about the beach... the sun, the people, the smell, and most definitely the beautiful water! Ahhh... I could just live there year round!

5. Cupcakes
I know this probably isn't the best obsession to have (thus my weight gain) but I absolutely love them!!

So now that I've let everyone know that I am a ROLL TIDE screamin', Reality show watchin', iPhone talkin', Cupcake eatin' beach bum... what are your obsessions?

May Currently

Its that time again folks!!! Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade is hosting her monthly Linky Party!!!

Here is mine:

Hop on over, link up, and join the party!

ATTENTION: Blog Newbie Question!!!!

Hey Everyone! Hope you are all having a great week thus far! I had a question that I have been searching for the answer to near and far... I have searched and searched the internet high and low and no one seems to be giving out the secrets. I decided to come to my "bloggie" friends for answers.

So, as most of you know... I am not a teacher yet, still living the life of a healthcare professional. However, during my time spent of only working three 12 hour shifts a week, I would like to start creating cute things for my (future) classroom. Only problem... I have NO CLUE as to where to even begin. This is where you come in!

What software do you use to create your TPT materials such as classroom decor, theme sets, units, etc. I don't by any means want to steal your ideas, just want to be able to create my own!

Thanks so much!!!

All About Who? You, That's Who!

Jaque over at Mommy & Me Creations has started a linky party called "All About Who? You, That's Who!"
 Hop on over and link up!

1) Are you a mom? And if so, how many kids do you have?
- I don't have any "human" children, but I am a mom to Jordie. She is my sweet Morkie!

2) What is your most favorite thing about your mom?
-My favorite thing about my mom is that we are best friends! I can talk to her about ANYTHING and know that she will be there for me no matter what! We are like PB&J! Love her!

3) Name 3 of your favorite things that you have done with your mom.
- One of my favorite things that my mom and I do together is dance! We both absolutely love dancing!!!

**Here we are dancing at my wedding**

- Another favorite would have to be our lazy days by the pool together. You never know where the conversation is going to go with us!
- The third favorite thing is lying on the couch watching Lifetime on Sundays.. ahh...those were the days!

4) Do you have a special gift to give your mom? If so, what is it? Do you dare share?
-I haven't decided what I'm going to give her for mother's day yet! She is very simple so she would be happy with a card. 

4) What are your plans for Mother's Day?
-Right now plans for Mother's Day are to just spend the day together. My grandmother has been sick so the "traditional" dinner with her is still up in the air. This year's plans are contingent upon her health.
