Let's Get Acquainted Linky

Hey y'all! I'm linking up with Latoya who blogs over at Flying into First Grade. She started a linky party called Let's Get Acquainted Linky Party so that teachers could get to know one another.

This week, the theme is the NOUN GAME. You simply name your favorite person, place, thing, and animal.

Here goes nothin'!


My all time favorite person is my momma. That woman has been to hell and back for me, and would do it again in a heartbeat. She's my rock, my best friend, and one of the very few that truly knows who I am. She's there when I need her and I could not be happier to have such a great Momma!

My favorite place has to be the beach. I know, so cliche. But, it's the one place I feel like ME. I love the water, the sand, and the sun. I also find it very relaxing to just be able to look at the waves, hear the sounds, and so forth. It also reminds me of the past times I've had when we went to New Jersey EVERY. SINGLE. SUMMER. when I was younger! My favorite.

A blanket. Sooo simple, but I am a blanket hoarder! Nothing provides warmth, safety, or comfort like a blanket. In every room of my house, you will find a blanket for each person that lives in the house. The kitchen included!! I'm not kidding... :)


I don't have just one... I've LOVED all the pets we've had (Ozzy, Kitty, Damon, Jesse, Missy, Socks, and Tucker), but if it weren't a pet choice, I'd go with an elephant as my animal of choice. I say it all the time and I'll continue saying it... when I get older, I WILL be that person that has an elephant in the backyard. You just watch!

I mean... how can someone say that is NOT cute!?

What are YOUR favorite nouns?? Go link up with Latoya and let us all know!

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner! And Tucker Update

Hey y'all!!

If you made a comment on the post below (the video introduction of the landform pack), you received the pack FOR FREE in your inbox :) I decided that everyone who took the effort to watch the video and make a comment deserved the pack. I appreciate y'all and the time you spend supporting me, so why not!?

So my 6 commenters, check your inboxes!

Tucker is HOME. He came home Thursday afternoon, although I could have brought him home Thursday morning! They called and said he had such a bounce back that they were SO happy and were ready to let him go home without having to have too much observance. So, we're feeding him a tablespoon of food, half a pill, and 2 ml of amoxicillin in the morning and in the evening.

I think we picked up the wrong puppy from the hospital though because he is a WILD child and is hyper as can be... the opposite of what he was when I first dropped him off!!

But, I am so happy to have him home and I know Cody is, too. SO, I appreciate the kind words, prayers, and continuous thoughts - it's y'all who brought him home to us so early :)

Be back soon with a content post!

Have a good day, y'all!

Landform UNIT Video and GIVEAWAY! And Tuck Tuck Update

UPDATE ON TUCK: He's doing FANTASTIC. He ate twice today (Wednesday), ate through his catheter (they replaced it.. oh golly), and is up and moving around. Playing a little, too. Said they are going to keep him for one more day at least (Thursday), but he could potentially be home as early as Friday :) thank you for all the kind words & prayers - Cody and I truly appreciate each and every one of you!!

I FINALLY finished my landform unit!! I am so excited to tell y'all all about it.

I decided to create a video to introduce my new packet. I'm going to warn you now... it's a lengthy video but I go through each activity & give little details. You can fast forward, but you may miss something - just a warning!!!

DO NOT judge me on how dweeby I sound. It's my first screencast for my blog, but I had fun making it!!

Keep your ears open for something SECRET in the video :)

To purchase this unit, click here! This pack will be on SALE for $5.00 until March 22nd (tomorrow) at 11:59 PM. After that, it goes back up to $7.00. But as you see, you'll get PLENTY of activities!


AND if you remembered, there was a SECRET WORD in the video that I said. If you are able to tell me the word in a comment, you will be put into a drawing for a FREE packet! Only three people will win, but you've gotta have that silly secret word!

Leave the comment below with the word by 11:59 PM CST FRIDAY, MARCH 22ND to be entered into the drawing! Comments will be hidden until the deadline so y'all can't cheat ;) hehe


Thanks for coming by & good luck!

Baby Tucker Needs Your Prayers

I've got a somber post today, but I gotta ask for your prayers & good thoughts to be sent our way as a fur-family!

Tucker started feeling poorly on Sunday morning - he would not eat, would not drink. He wouldn't run, his spark had gone, and I knew something was wrong, but thought it was just upset tummy (who wants to eat when your belly hurts?? Not me...).

We were going to wait until tomorrow to take him to the veterinarian's office, but him throwing up all day long and not keeping anything down, I knew something wasn't right.

His temperature was fine, his stool sample came back negative for any parasites or things of that nature, but he was tested for parvo, and that came back positive.

If you don't know what that is, just like I didn't know until after the veterinarian told me, it's a HIGHLY contagious virus. His small intestines are being ripped apart and being shredded, which is what makes him very sick. There's another strand that will affect the heart, but we will not know if he has that until after a couple of days.

The bad thing about this virus...  it comes with a pretty good chance of fatality. Yep, I said that f word. Talk about heartbroken.

Tucker is struggling and is being hospitalized for AT LEAST three days, if not more. Now, if you're a fur momma, that's about as bad of news as having your human baby hospitalized.

At the moment, Tucker is hooked up to IVs galore, being given antibiotics as often as possible, and is going to be watched intensely 24/7.

He's one of the cutest, sweetest pups I've ever known. He's learning SO much every day and I am so proud of where he's come from when we got him to now - he knows what the word NO and what the words, "Kisses only" means!

So, please keep this spunky boy in your prayers! Tucker baby, you're going to make it!!

Mommy, Daddy, and Bubby love you <3

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the kind words, prayers, & thoughts. It means more than you'll ever know!

Have a good night, y'all.

Another Pick You Plum website - but Better!

Hi friends! Just stopping by real quick to tell you about a website called Educents.

How many of y'all shop deal of the day sites like Pick Your Plum, Very Jane, GroopDealz, ScrapAce, ScrapbookDeals, SheDeals, CraftySteals, and so forth (meeeee...)?

Well, they are FINALLY coming out with one specific to EDUCATORS. How cool, right?

The website itself is not set to launch until April 2nd, but if you sign up now, you receive a $15.00 credit that is in the form of a code (similar to Teachers Pay Teachers gift certificates or others out there).

This offer WILL go away on April 2nd, so if you're interested in signing up, click here to check it out!

I hope that y'all will because when you can get educator products at 30-90% off... who WOULDN'T want that?! Just sayin' :)

Now off to work out... it's an early, but hopefully productive, day for me!

Have a good day, y'all!

I kinda cheated on this one - 2 more words than what I was supposed to include - oops!
Like: summer - self explanatory 
Love: sticky notes - what teacher DOESN'T like sticky notes?!
Hate: spiders and snakes scare the bejeezus out of me - they're so crawly, slithery, weird, gross, scary.. ahhh!!

I'm An Alabama Blogger! And Tucker :)

Hey everybody!

I know, I know... I've been gone in what seems like FOREVER. I'm trying to make time for blogging and it's falling way behind everything else I've got to take care of. BUT, no longer :) I will be back to blogging at least 3 times a week!!

So, today is one day for this week - yay me!

Have you heard of the BIG ol' link up of blogs by state provided by Diane at Fifth in the Middle?!

You haven't? Oh, well I'm about to tell you all about it!

Diane wanted a place for bloggers to link up because she kept reading ALL about the blogger meet ups. Well, she lives in Iowa and wanted to know who else lived in Iowa. What was a little curiosity became a linky for all states!

Bloggers are to go to Diane's blog and click on the Blogs by State tab at the top! After that, find which "area" you are in - whether it be midwest, northeast, southern, or western. I'm in Alabama so I'm going to be Southern - BUT I'm from Ohio, so of course I checked out the midwest page, too ;)

Anyways, once you've found your area, find your state! Link up your blog, grab the button, and add it to your page.

Mine is over there on the right -------->

I love this linky because now I'm going to be put into touch with southern bloggers that may live close to me - what a great way to network!

Thanks, Diane, for creating such a fantastic "directory." Perfect way to find bloggy friends close to you :)

Now it's your turn... go link up by clicking HERE!

To end this post... here's some pictures of our new baby boy, Tucker! If y'all follow my FB page or are friends with my personal page/follow me on isntagram/follow me on twitter... you've seen all these BUT who's to complain?! He's so dang cute!!

We're also holding a puppy for a friend - her name is Fionna and she's on the right in this picture.

Tucker on my lap, Fionna in the bed

Yes, I'm taking care of TWO 9 week old puppies... and Socks :)

Enough cuteness for the day. See y'all later!
