Teacher Week: 5 Fun Facts

Happy Monday!  Boy was it hard to get out of bed today.  I am beginning my second full week of school and I think my exhaustion is catching up.  I will be happy when the upcoming 3-day weekend arrives!  

Today I am linking up with Blog Hoppin' for teacher week.  Today is five fun facts about me, so here you go.

1.  Here is my family.  I think they are pretty cool.  My husband and I will be celebrating our ten year anniversary in a couple of weeks and our son will be 8 a day after our anniversary!

2.  I love to shop.  That picture of my family above shows why.  I live with two boys and they are total boys when it comes to sports obsesses.  I am outnumbered.  So sometimes I need a break and I just need my mommy time.  So shopping it is.

3.  I love to travel.  Before I was married, I traveled during my summers off from teaching.  I have traveled to every continent except Antarctica.  My husband and I traveled to Italy for our honeymoon, but really that has been our last international travel we have done.  We bought a house, got a dog and then had a kid and that's where we are now.

BUT, this summer we got our son a passport and renewed ours so things may change!

Here is picture of me in Zimbabwe at a lion rescue center holding an eight week old lion cub.

4.  I love coffee.  No explanation needed.

5.  Last December my world changed when I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 43.  I don't have the breast cancer gene and had no history of breast cancer in my family.  It just happened.  I am no cancer free and so fortunate that it was caught early #getyourmammogramsyearly

My sweet class last year made me this sweet countdown chain before I went out on medical leave.  They wrote notes on each one.  It still hangs in my house.

Have a great Monday!

    Your paper chain is precious. I'm so glad you kicked cancer's butt! :)
