WINNERS & Let's Talk About Me

First, I want to announce the winner's from my 100 Follower/Back to School Giveaway! Thank you to everyone who entered and a BIG thank you to all those followers! {Winners should be receiving their e-mail sometime tonight!}

I am so excited to participate in Teacher Week '13! I am so excited for this school year and can't wait to meet my new kiddos. But for is everything {and more} that you could know about this crazy teacher!

Nick and I are getting married June 21, 2014. I simply CAN NOT wait! We have so much to do before then, but we are so excited for our special day. It's going to be a day filled with fun, laughs and lots of DANCING! Nick and I met through mutual friends a few years ago on the now infamous "Ski Trip." After the ski trip he invited me to play trivia with all of our friends at Mellow Mushroom. From then on we were attached at the hip. He is so patient, kind and laid back! The complete opposite of me...minus the kind part! ;)

I L.O.V.E to travel and see different cities! Last year we went to NYC with our very best friends and had the best time! This year we went to Asheville where we got engaged at the Biltmore House! Next year, NASHVILLE for my bachelorette party! WHOOO!!!

Kids are funny! My friends are funny! My family is hilarious and Nick always makes me laugh! I can't stay in a bad mood long before something makes me giggle. My fifth grade teacher used to describe the student of the week and we all had to guess. He said one clue, "this student giggles ALL the time!" My fifth grade friends knew right away that it was me!

I am NOT a dog person. In fact, I swore up and down that I hated dogs/cats/animals. Well...Nick convinced me last year that we needed a puppy. I fell in LOVE. Rudy is the greatest snuggle buddy and walking partner ever. He is spoiled rotten and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Seriously. My family is FUN. They are always on the go and up for anything! Whether it's a laid back beach weekend at home or a family road trip to NY, somehow it always ends up comical! My friends are obsessed with visiting my parents in Hilton Head for our annual friends beach trip. They are convinced that "Annie and Big Lane" throw the best party around!

I have traveled to Italy in high school and then again right after college. My mom, Lindsay and I loved wandering around Italy and Greece eating, shopping and trying every glass of wine that was offered our way!

I graduated from Clemson with my undergrad and masters degree. Then I went back for a third time for my early childhood certification. Needless to say, Saturdays in the fall I spend my days in Death Valley with my best friends cheering on our Tigers! Thankfully, Nick is a Clemson grad, too! ;)

When Nick and I get married I will "officially" be Aunt Sarah! I couldn't be more excited. These two boys are the most fun, most hilarious and sweetest little nuggets on the planet! Not to mention, they will be the cutest little ring bearers EVER!

When I switched schools last year, I found out that my classroom was going to be a 1:1 iPad classroom! It has really enhanced my teaching and more importantly, student learning! Last year was a wonderful experience and I can't wait to learn and grow with my new babes this year!

These are *most* of my cousins. When I say cousins, I mean they are my first and second {and the little nugget is a third} cousin. We are all very close and still get together at least once a year for Christmas. My {first} cousins and I grew up more like brother and sisters, and I talk to my aunts and uncles just about as much as my parents! Needless to say, for our wedding guest list our family takes up about 75 people! :) 

Well, that's everything and more you could ever want {or need} to know about me! Don't forget to link up at Blog Hoppin' and tell us all about you!
