Meet the Teacher Linky

Hi y'all!

I was not about to blog today...
I've got a To Do list about two miles long and I am still in a little pain after my wisdom teeth removal...

BUT
When I saw Stephanie from Falling into First was hosting this awesome linky....
I knew I had to link up!


That's a horribly awesome picture of me.  I LOVE it! I guess it really should say my name, Vera and not The Tutu Teacher...but whatevs I do what I want.

Here's a little about me.






I married this sweet man just 8 months ago!  I wish we could get married again..it was so much fun.  We clearly had a great time.



We are the proud parents of one amazing fur baby.  His name is Ben and he is wonderful.
We adopted him in Austin and he is such a love bug.

This has been a FANTASTIC summer! I've been so busy and had so many adventures...
As many of you know:

Vegas



A new car



 I went back to Texas

And last week, I had my wisdom teeth removed...
That was horrible.
And there are no pictures of my ridiculous swollen mouth.







THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

My family and friends.
My adorable dog.
My spinach smoothies.
Freshly painted toe nails.
Skittles.
Jack Daniels.
Purses, shoes, Alex and Ani bracelets.
Tutus.


 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
As I child I ALWAYS wanted to be a movie star, or pop star, or just a star.
I loved performing and singing and dancing.  I am such a ham.

I still wish I could be on Broadway...



THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.

Truth.
Love.
Fun.

 
FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"

"Sweet! You want me to focus more on state standards and less on child development? Awesome,"
said no teacher ever!
 

Q: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?

OH.
It's the one and only Britney.
Or Brit Brit, which I'm sure she'd let me call her.

Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?

 How tulle can change your life.


 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
 I'd want to fly.

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?

“[Kids] don't remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are.”- Jim Henson.

Jim Henson has always been a personal hero of mine, 
and this quote has always been my teaching motto. 

Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

Well...because I've ALWAYS wanted to be a pop star...I do mini American Idol auditions in the car everyday.
I think I'd pick a Celine Dion song...she has a lot of belting out opportunities.

 
 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

Night Owls! Where you at? HOOHOO.
I hate mornings.

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?

I really do live and die by my morning work.  
I use it EVERY.SINGLE. DAY.
It's stress free.
It's scaffolded.
I love it.

 
Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU!

Well, I have over 10 tattoos. 


I'm obsessed with Melonheadz clipart because I swear to all things wonderful, Nikki has somehow found every picture of me as a child and used it as inspiration for the African American girls in her bundles.

Do you see the similarity?


I know you know I wear tutus...but did you know I make ALL my tutus?
It's only been recently that I've perfected the art of tutu making. 
Here's an early tutu:

And my most recent

So much better!

Lastly, I am a HUGE goofball.
I always embarrass my husband with my sweet dance moves...in public.
Or to sneak into other peoples photos...or conversations..
I'm also not afraid to belt out to any song I hear...anywhere.



Clearly, I'm an only child.





That was too much fun!
Thanks Stephanie! 
Head over to her blog and link up so we can learn a little more about you!

    Congratulations on your recent wedding! What an awesome day. I loved my wedding day, too :)

    Question about your morning work, do you make printables daily or use a plastic cover?
    Nice to meet you!
