Welcome to my blog

Welcome. I thought the best way to introduce myself is to tell you 25 things about me.

1. I am 27 and have been married for 3 years.
2. I am an elementary school teacher.
3. I love to be creative. I like to make jewelry, scrapbook, draw and do other projects.
4. Part of me wants to be Martha Stewart.
5. I like to consider myself efficient. My husband considers me impatient. This is why #4 will never work.
6. I wish that I could cook better, and sometimes I get an urge to try making something complicated (because of #4) but usually it doesn't turn out quite right (due to #5).
7. I am a private person. I guess this would lead you to wonder why I would write a blog, but I like writing. You won't see a picture of me on this blog. Plus, this allows me to tell funny school stories. Trust me, there will be some.
8. I love to read. I am always looking for a good book recommendation.
9. We are working on a Total Money Makeover a la Dave Ramsey and I have recently embraced my thrifty side.
10. I get excited about sales and coupons.
11. I am a terrible speller and my grammar is atrocious. If this bothers you, consider this a fair warning.
12. I love shoes, but I also love to be comfortable. This means I mostly wear flip flops.
13. I live in Florida and flip flops are considered year round shoes.
14. I have an overwhelming urge to travel. There is so much I want to see. We are currently planning 2 big trips in 2010.
15. #14 requires lots of saving.
16. I am a picky drinker. I usually only drink water. I hate sodas, tea, and coffee. I know it is un-southern to live in the south and not drink sweet tea.
17. I don't consider myself a picky eater (my mother might disagree).
18. I am always late. Not on purpose, but I don't like to sit around (see #5) so if I think I might be early, I will add in an extra stop or find something to do. Then, I'm late.
19. I have a jigsaw puzzle obsession. I love them. I can put one together in a few hours. And I may be a little competitive about it. Or a lot competitive.
20. I tend to be a little obsessive in general. I find something to work on and throw myself into it.
21. I am a list maker. There are lists by the computer, by my bed, in my purse, on my desk, everywhere. I get this from my mom. Sometimes, she makes lists for me. I always appreciate that.
22. I love Burt's Bees chap stick. I have at least 5 tubes strategically placed around the house.
23. I love the sun. Summer is my favorite season. I enjoy the pool, the ocean and the AC.
24. I am always cold. I take a sweatshirt with me when I go in restaurants. I think my body temperature is actually below the norm. I keep my classroom AC on the highest setting it will allow. My kids get used to it.
25. I look really young. The other day, the shampoo girl asked me if I was in high school. This year will be my 10 year reunion.

I hope this blog will be a place where I can share life stories, projects I am working on, things I think are interesting, deals I find, my Martha attempts, and other musings.
