Blog Star...

I'm joining Mrs. Monologues for the Blog Star link up. What a great idea.

If you are a (somewhat) new follower, you are joining my lil' part of bloggy land at a very pivotal moment in my life. You see, before this life changing decision, I was a 20-something, recent graduate, living in the suburbs of Chicago with my parents, trying to find a teaching job...ANYWHERE.

Here are some other posts that describe who I am---before I let you in on this big life decision.

10 things you might now know about me

2011 Bucket List

2012 Bucket List

I know it's a lot, but they let you know a little bit about myself.


I'm accepted a job in Clarksville, TN teaching 1st grade for this upcoming school year. I'm super excited and very nervous. I actually leave today to attend the new teacher conference and my mom is coming with me. School starts August 6th! So, I have to move down there into my new apartment, set up my apartment, and set up and organize my first ever classroom of my very own!

I've been pinning like crazy all stuff school, classroom set up and 1st grade stuff galore! If you won't get sick of all my pins and repines please Follow Me on Pinterest

Join me on this new adventure as I will be blogging about everything from; decorating my first ever apartment by myself, to setting up my first classroom, and as to whether or not The Boy will be coming with (that's for another post) and moving in with me.
