Meet the Teacher Linky Party!

I'm writing this post from my bed because y'all, the 14 hour work days have begun! And this is the EASY part. The setting up of classrooms, getting acquainted with new co-workers, learning the in's and out's of a new school/district...that's all easy-peasy compared to what August 25th will bring! So needless to say, I'm in need of a party! A linky party that is! I love this one that cutie pie Stephanie over at Falling Into First started. I can't wait to read more of the posts so I can learn more about some of my fantastic blogger buddies! I'll be link #210 so that may take a while. ;-)


So howdy friends! I'm Destiny and this will be my 4th year teaching. I've taught Kinder 2 years and 1st for one. I just recently moved to Austin and am super-duper-duper excited about this school year! I'm a new-ish blogger and TpT creator (I've only been blogging about 3 months). 

I come from a small family (only child) and am not married but I have THE CUTEST PUP that keeps me company. He makes me smile when I'm sad and is the best cuddler. 




THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...
Coffee. Larabars. My dog. Netflix. BBQ. The lake. Texas. Austin. Crafting. Insanity & Shaun T. (that's more of a love/hate kinda thing). HEB. Reading. Dallas Cowboys (football in general really). Road trips. Sunshine. Shopping. Cupcakes. Bubble baths. 

IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
I actually got my B.S. in Fashion Merchandising so I would probably be doing something in that area. I always wanted to be an event/wedding planner too!

THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Goofy. Sensitive. Picky. 

FINISH THE SENTENCE, "_____, SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"
"I just have too much space and storage in this room!"...Weeelllll, actually I MAY have said that once today while I was setting up. Our new school is seriously a teacher's dream and my room is my dream room. But I really do have a TON of space, so much so that I feel like I need a megaphone to communicate with my teammates when they pop their head in the door and I'm in the opposite corner! And the storage, oh the storage! My stuff doesn't even begin to fill half of it! Guess that gives me an excuse to go buy more stuff to fill it with right? RIGHT?? :)

IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?
George Strait. Enough said here. 

IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?
Though She Be But Little She Is Fierce (would that be plagiarism to take a line from Shakespeare??)

YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
Mind-reading. Not all the time. Just when I'm totally clueless about what someone is thinking. 

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?
Everything happens for a reason. 

IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Katy Perry- Birthday!! Oh. My. Goodness. I. Just. Love. Katy. Perry. May or may not have dance parties in the living room when she comes on Pandora. By myself. :)

ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?
Me? A morning person? Ha!...Me? A night owl? Ha!...LOL I'm an in-betweener. I don't like getting up super early but I'm my most productive in the AM. And I'm such a grandma that even on nights out I'm usually ready for bed by midnight, if not sooner! 

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?
I have a grand total of 6 products in my store because I just got started. My favorite thing would be my number posters though!


SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU!
I used to have burping contests in college with one of my best friends. We would buy Barq's root beer (and ONLY Barq's!) and just belch away. I always lost though because she burps like a man. Better than a man actually! Not very lady-like huh? We didn't care though and still don't! #sorrynotsorry

August (yikes!) Currently

Goodness it's been a while since I've written a post! I'm thinking I need to invest in a blog planner- possibly this one from the super creative, super hard working Schroeder Shenanigans in Second. Possibly during the TpT Back to School sale?? ;-) Click the pic to add it to YOUR wish list too!


Ok, on to the reason for this blog post- linking up with Farley for August Currently. August....August. I had to say it to myself a couple times just for it to sink in. I swear it was just the last day of school in June yesterday! This was seriously the shortest summer ever!



Hop on over to Farley's blog to link up your currently.



I only have 8 days left until I go back. Although I'm sad summer is coming to an end I'm excited to start learning the in's and out's of my new district and school. Bring on the new year!
