Link Up, Buttercup!

Ahhh summer! The time when we get to relax, plan, create, spend quality time with the people we love, and HAVE LINKY PARTIES!!! Oh my gosh! There are so many going on right now, I just have to link up to a few! 
But before I do so, I want to remind you that if you would like to contribute to my giveaway coming soon, email me at or leave me a comment! It's going to be a great giveaway, and I already have a couple friends involved! I'd be happy to give away ANYTHING- it doesn't have to just be a teacher item!
Secondly, I'm looking for some guest bloggers! I'm going on vacay during the first week and a half of August, and want some awesome peeps to come share! If you would like to guest blog, please fill out the form on my Be My Guest! page above.
Alrighty! Now for the linkies!
Remember! I'm having my own linky about healthy living! It's my first one, so link up!

Miss Nelson is having a fonts party:

Run Miss Nelsons got the Camera
If you've never heard of, please head over to her blog and get enlightened! If you use Google Chrome for your web browser, you can get an app for it put on the browser!

The next partay is an AWESOME resource!
The Teacher Wife
The teacher wife is hosting this linky! I'm super excited to sit down one day, and read all the posts, and make a huge list for my classroom library! Instead of trying to think up my own list, I thought I'd share an AWESOME resource! This should definitely be bookmarked on your computers!
Storyline Online is a website you can visit where you can play videos of celebrities reading your favorite picture books! Your kiddos may not recognize all of them, but it gives them more reading enrichment with a different source! Show this on your Smartboard on a day when you're too tired or too sick to read, or when there is a sub in your class! Remember BOOKMARK. You'll thank me later!

The next party I'm linking up to is 
Blog Title
So fun! 
1. Reality TV
I know, it's bad! But I just love it! I can't wait to see who Bachelorette Emily chooses TOMORROW! I really really really hope it's Jef! Aerie's great, but their connection is pretty much just physical. With Jef it's so much more! {Sidenote: can i just say that I respect her so much for not spending the night during the fantasy suite dates with the guys? That's how every woman should do it! WAIT TIL YOU'RE MARRIED!! ok I'm done!}
2. Tea
I know, it's not that guilty! But I love tea! Hot tea is my fave- with the works! Cream, sugar,...delish! I love iced tea too. Besides water, it's my drink of choice!
3. Thrifting!
I LOVE going to thrift stores, garage and estate sales, and finding gems that no one else would find cool. It seriously is the thrill of the hunt! I have an old camera collection, and I love finding things for the home, and the classroom! EEK!
4. Pinterest!
I know, it's a common one among girls, but so true! I love pinercising, a word determined by DeAnne at 

It's a combo of Pinning and exercising! I do it best with my iPhone on the stationary bike at the gym!

The last party is actually a blog hop:
So, here goes!
1.  what state you are in
I'm in the lovely state of Nebraska
    2.  your current teaching position
I'm currently finishing up my degree- so no job yet! But I'm hoping to substitute this year. I really want to teach 3rd and 4th grade!
    3.  your teaching experience
I've had student teaching/practicums in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade,  but I've worked with all ages in some way or another!
    4.  when you started blogging
March 2012
    5.  share a blogging tip / blogging resource
There are so many! Seriously, if you are a new blogger, go see what everyone has to say! For me, a huge one is to join big linky parties! A lot of people read posts from those, and you'll gain more followers that way! Two of my top faves are:
Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade has a monthly
