July Currently and Blog Awards

I have been awarded 2 awards lately - WOW!  Victoria from The Wise & Witty Teacher gave me the One Lovely Blog Award.  Sara from Miss V's Busy Bees gave me the Versatile Blogger Award.  Thank you so much Victoria and Sara!


Here are the rules for the One Lovely Blog Award:
1.  Follow the person that gave you the award.
2.  Link back to the person that gave you the award.
3.  Pass the award on to 15 new bloggers.

I'm having trouble finding 15 bloggers who don't already have this wonderful award.  I'm going to keep searching and add to the list as I find them.  Please drop by their blogs and check them out.

Rock & Teach

Now, for The Versatile Blogger Award: 
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Include a link to their site.

3. Include the award image in your post
4.  Give 7 random facts about yourself
5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.
6. When nominating, include a link to their site.
7. Let other bloggers know they have been nominated
So, here goes my 7 facts:
1.  I like to walk a couple of miles everyday.  It gives me a chance to be by myself (not even the bathroom is sacred anymore) but it's starting to get too hot for walking.
2.  I am new to blogging.  I really enjoy stalking everyone else's blog so I thought I might as well join the party.
3.  I love to play Zynga games on Facebook.  It's a complete waste of time but SO MUCH FUN!
4.  I really, really, really need to wash and wax my car, but...Zyngo Bingo is distracting me.
5.  I've been teaching for 19 years and most of those years have been in 3rd grade.
6.  I don't watch t.v. much unless NCIS is on and then you better stay out of my way!
7.  I love Mexican food and can eat it morning, noon, and night.

Here are the blogs I'm nominating for The Versatile Blogger Award.  Please go check them out when you have time.  I'm a few short of having 15, but I'm working on it.  I'll keep this list updated.
