A few things about Me

Since I am a "newbie" blogger, I thought I'd list a few things to know about me :) Here goes...

1. Palm Trees- I am obsessed with them! I am so lucky to live in California so I can see their natural beauty every day! A palm tree wrapped with Christmas lights is just absolutely priceless.
2. Mexican Food...I could eat it for every meal and never tire of it. Chips and salsa, guacamole, enchiladas...So. dang. good.

3. Michaels - I shop there WAY too much. But I love it. It makes my heart happy as soon as I walk through the door. It feeds my brain the creative food it craves. CONSTANTLY.

4. Golden Retrievers - I want one. Like, ridiculously bad. I have a HUGE spot in my heart for animals. My fiance jokes, "If we get a dog, I will never get attention from you.." (haha, he's actually probably right ;) )

5. Working Out - I will admit, I have to force myself, but when I get done, I feel like a million bucks.

6. Wife in Training - I am truly blessed with a wonderful fiance who *adores* and *spoils* me. He is also a teacher...we met at the school where I of the best days of my teaching career was telling my students, "Guess what! Miss Adams is marrying Mr. Slayton!" (cheers, screams, tears, you name it, my students did it )
7. Enjoying the Simple Things - It doesn't take much to make me happy. A hot cup of coffee. A good craft project. Sunshine. Bubble baths. A good book. Taking pictures. Two hour talks with my mom on Saturday mornings. Christmas lights. The list is never ending :)

8. October - I absolutely love fall, Halloween, the pumpkin patch by the ocean, carving pumpkins, decorating (both classroom and home), apple cider, Halloween crafts, etc. There is an overall special "feeling" of fall that just warms my heart. Not to mention, I am also getting married on October 14th :)

9. Boots - I could wear them every day and NEVER get tired of them. Boots with skirts, dresses, jeans, tights, leggings...I should have named by blog, "Teaching in boots.."

10. Flying - I have a fear of flying. Growing up as a pilot's daughter, I used to LOVE to fly. After one fateful plane ride where the emergency masks dropped and we thought the plane was on fire, my love turned to hate. I am trying to overcome my fear, one plane ride at a time.
