Newbie bloggers blog hop and a delicious recipe!

While I am not new new to blogging, I still consider myself a newbie! So I am linking up with Grade Three is the Place for me in her Newbie Bloggers Blog Hop! I can't wait to get to know more new bloggers!

1. What state are you in?
I am currently in North Carolina. My hubby and I have very high hopes of moving back to Michigan(where I am from) or Hawaii( where my husband is from) in the next year or two! It all depends on where he can get a job!

2. Your Current Teaching Position:

I currently teach 3rd grade and love it! It really is the grade for me!

3. Your Teaching Experience

This will be my 4th year in 3rd. I previously have taught kindergarten for one semester, a year of first,  and a year of second.

4. When You Started Blogging

I only started blogging this past April over spring break. I have always been big with online networking through ProTeacher and sharing my ideas. I always wanted to blog but never had the guts to do it! I am SO glad I did! I really look forward to reading blogs each day. I get so many great ideas from great teachers out there!

5. Share a blogging tip/blogging resource
To not do it all at once. Blogging can be a bit overwhelming. Just try one thing at a time. Don’t be scared to ask other bloggers a question! That is exactly how I started blogging. I asked some questions even though I felt like I was bothering that person. It really is nice to help other new bloggers out there!

This going to the coffee shop to get on the internet is a lot of work! It's a good thing Starbucks is a MILE up the road! AND, I have a Starbucks boyfriend:) hehe! His name is Danny and he always gives me free drinks! It's a good thing my hubby knows about him...haha! He even said I should bake him something and bring it to him! So, well, I did! I made these last night and brought them to him today! He just told me they are delicious and I am his favorite!
These are seriously EVIL...they are sooo good! Click the picture of you want the recipe! 

 I hope everyone has a nice Sunday! 
 See you all tomorrow for Monday Made it!


  1. Yep, those look DELICIOUS!!!! I wish I had a starbucks boyfriend... I feel like that would come in soooo handy! And possibly moving to Hawaii? Wow that would be beautiful! I lived in San Diego for a few years and LOVED the beach. And the warm weather. How cool! What brought you to North Carolina in the first place?

    Reaching for the TOP!

    1. Teaching brought me to NC. I have been here for 5 years now. I did teach in VA for 2 years first. Danny is very sweet and I love that he gives me coffee for free. I will continue to bake if that means I get free coffee;)

  2. Yum yum your cookies look wonderful!

  3. So excited to find a fellow 3rd grade teacher! I can't wait to explore your blog :)

  6. Well since you may not mine, I have a question. What program do you use to create activities and worksheets to sell on TPt and TNB? How do you put the frames in word? lol! Glad I found you. I'm your newest follower. if you get a chance please visit my blog @ Calling Plays in 2nd Grade.

    1. I don't use word at all! It is not user friendly for creating things. PowerPoint is the way to go:)

  7. Hi...I am your newest follower. I think I gained 10 pounds just drooling over those yummy looking bars. Stop by my blog and say hello when you get a chance. It isn't much yet...but it will be!

  8. Tonya,
    I am your newest follower. I am in the midst of creating my new blog...trying to figure out the ends and outs of everything. If you hop over please be patient. :)
    I have followed you for a while now on Pro Teacher. I love your ideas and have used some of them in my classroom...Brain Bubbles were my summer project last year along with the Think Bubbles ..which actually a friend liked them so much I am creating a set for her as well. I know that having twins keeps her plenty busy.
    Once again I look forward to your posts.
    Thank you for being inspiring! :)

  9. I just found your blog through the newbie blog hop and I am your newest follower!! It is so cute!! I would love for you to visit when you have a chance.
