11 Random Things about myself 
1. I am a new homeowner - since August of this year!!
2. I love Jesus Christ and am all about celebrating the true meaning of Christmas - was so excited when my mom found me this gorgeous nativity scene at a thrift store! Not going to lie, I broke the wise man as I was unwrapping him - but was easily fixed with super glue!
3. I'm not athletic at all...and kinda clumsy
4. I lived with 7 of my girl friends my senior year of college. Probably one of the best times of my life.
5. I make my own hair ties.
6. My "s" key on my computer is being difficult and sometimes I'm missing that letter when I type. Don't judge!
7. I got married a year and a half ago. I love my hubby so much. He's a cutie!
8. I grew up a Michigan country girl, and now live in the Chicago suburbs.
9. I hate cleaning.
10. I love using coupons and saving money! I have a lot of clothes, but just about all of them come from thrift stores!
11. I have another blog for crafty/DIY/life things - Breezy Pink Daisies

11 Questions:
1. What made you start a blog? My first blog was a couponing blog and I started it because I wanted to share all the great deals I found to others. Then I started Breezy Pink Daisies because I was bored and, again, wanted to share cool things I made. I blogged about special education on Breezy Pink Daisies too, but then felt I needed to make my special ed posts more separate, and Breezy Special Ed was born! :)
2. What’s your favorite thing to do on the weekends? Relax and spend time with my hubby and friends.
3. Name one person you admire and why. My mom - because who doesn't?! :)
4. Do you like sports? If so, what’s your favorite team? I like watching sports! Go Chicago Bears!!
5. Why did you choose to be a teacher? I grew up playing "teacher" in my basement with my sisters. I always thought I'd be regular elementary education, but then I teacher aided in my first special education class in college and FELL IN LOVE with it. I love the challenge of figuring out and helping students be successful. So, now I teach high school special education!
6. If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do with your money? Pay off student loans and our mortgage.
7. What is your most memorable moment so far in your life? My wedding day :)
8. What do you want the most for Christmas? A dog!
9. Do you like to shop? Where’s your favorite place? Um, yes! Thrift stores! haha
10. What are three blogs you constantly read? Oh my, there's a lot, but sticking with special education blogs, I'd say The Autism Helper, Sped-ventures, and Ms. Rachel's Room.
11. What are your future goals? Professionally - eventually get an ABA or similar masters degree. Personally - eventually have kiddos of my own.
