Liebster Blog Award + 11 to Go!

I missed my 200 followers giveaway when my laptop crashed. I am 11 away from 250 and I think that it's great number to have a giveaway in it's place. Invite your friends to follow me so we can celebrate! If you want to help out with my giveaway let me know! I would love to have you! Thanks! 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was nominated by Nikki at Love, Laughter and Lesson Plans for the Liebster Blog award
 at the beginning of December. Even though I have over 200 followers, I can't resist telling you all a bit more about myself.

Here are 11 random facts about me! 
1. I took 5 years of Italian in High School and College.
2. I cannot bake anything without having some major fiasco.
3. I am left handed which I have a love-hate relationship with.
4. I refuse to eat hot dogs or pop tarts.
5. I am addicted to Pinterest D.I.Y crafts.
6. I watch far too many reality/game/competition shows.
7. I am allergic to dogs/cats, grass and pineapples.
8. I love playing board games.
9. I hate amusement park rides.
10. I have to listen to music to fall asleep.
11. I could eat Chinese food every day.

Here are my answers to Nikki's questions:
1.  What movie would you identify your life with and why?
Oh boy I should probably have watched more movies so that I have something to relate to. This is the toughest question! I guess recently, I really related to Toy Story 3 because it came out right as I graduated high school and was going to college and my friends and I sat in the theatres and just cried because we were growing up and moving on with our lives. 

2.  What is your favorite sport?
My favorite sport is softball/baseball. I have grown up in a baseball family and it's where my heart is at. 

3.  Are you a dog person or a cat person?
I am not going to lie, I am not really a huge dog or cat fan because I'm allergic to them but they are both absolutely adorable! 

4.  What is your favorite subject to teach and why?
I love teaching math! Math was my favorite as a child. I love how there is one definite answer to a problem but a million ways to get there. 

5.  If you could move anywhere in the world where would you go?
I would move to Italy in a heartbeat. It is just beautiful there! 

6.  What is your favorite winter time tradition?
My favorite winter time tradition is sipping hot chocolate by the fire while watching The Polar Express but I recently bought an Elf on the Shelf and I am in love with it! 

7.  What is one thing that you wish you had for your classroom right now?
How about just a classroom of my own? I can't wait to teach! 

8.  Favorite book of all times?
There are so many amazing books to choose from! In my opinion, children's picture books are the best in general. I have become quite a Fancy Nancy fan recently but going back to my childhood, my favorite book is Guess How Much I Love You. 

9.  What are some of your hobbies?  (outside of school!)
Some hobbies are playing board games, making jewelry, scrapbooking, interior decorating, and reading. 

10.  What do you do for stress relief?
For stress relief I take a hot shower, listen to calming music, and read.

11.  What is your number one thing you advise new teachers to do for a successful school year?
I don't fully know from experience, but I would say establish a solid routine, and have consistent classroom management.

Now here is the part where I am supposed to highlight 11 blogs with under 200 followers. The only problem is that being late to the party, it seems that every blog I know of with under 200 followers has already been nominated. If you have a blog with under 200 followers and want to be nominated, let me know and I will update the post and nominate you.
