Let's Get To Know Each Other

I discovered a new blog, Create Like Crazy, this morning and snagged the idea for this post from her. She created a list of random facts about herself to use as an atypical "about me." I loved what she shared and was inspired to create my own list...

1. I have a habit of reading the last page of a book early on.

2. I'd rather go to the mountains than the beach.

3. I can never settle on what my "dream" grade level to teach is. Just when I fall in love with the little ones (K-2nd), I develop a love for the older kids (4th/5th).

4. Only two books have made me cry; Redeeming Love and A Thousand Splendid Suns.

5. I've kept a journal consistently for the past three years.

6. I write letters to my future husband that I'll give to him once we're married.

7. A large majority of my clothes are from thrift stores.

8. Peanut butter M&M's are my downfall.

9. Driving with the windows down while singing along to my favorite songs is a stress reliever for me.

10. Tulips are my favorite flower, but gardenias are a close second because of their smell.

11. I could listen to (Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding over and over.

12. I truly don't know what I would major in if I weren't pursuing elementary education. I'm a huge (future) teacher nerd.

13. I lived in Tallahassee until I moved away for college. I don't ever plan to move back.

14. I blog stalked for two years before I started my own. I've grown to love this creative outlet and community of women I've "met."

15. I love my middle name, Grey. I wish I had never stopped being called Samantha Grey when I was seven or eight.

So, there you have it...a hodge podge of random facts about me. If you decide to make your own list please share it with me!

Hi Samantha! I'm so glad to see that you were inspired to share your own list!
I think it is so cool that you write letters to your future husband. I wish I had thought of that! So sweet.
And I think "Samantha Grey" is adorable! You could always start introducing yourself as that! ;)

Thanks for sharing!

I prefer the mountains too! I wrote a letter to my husband before I knew who he was and it was so special t give it to him on our wedding night.

Thanks for the book ideas! I'm going to have to read them. Also...when I did my internship..I fell in LOVE with 1st graders. I felt like they lost their innocence in 4th. It's sad. But at the same time..it should be MORE about the teaching aspect. Ahh. Choices, choices.
