Tell Me More! Linky Party and Giveaway Reminder!

Well I'm at the beach right now.  It has been a wonderful and relaxing few days and I can't wait for the rest of the week.  I'm such a beach junkie.  Well Amy over at Step into 2nd Grade with Mrs. Lemons is having a linky party.  She wants us to share things about ourselves.  You can check out the linky party HERE.

1.       I have OCD in my classroom but my room in my apartment is a WRECK.  If only my OCD would pour over into my “everyday life.”  I’m sure my roommates would appreciate it!
2.       I am absolutely obsessed with nutella and peanut butter mixed together in a bowl.  Seriously.  You need to try it.
3.       Sometimes when I cook, I pretend I’m on my own cooking show.  Weird, I know.
4.       I LOVE paying my bills the old fashioned way (mail, not online).  There is just something so satisfying about putting a stamp on that sucker and being done with it.
5.       I make checklists… lots of them.  And sometimes I write things that I’ve already done so that I can go ahead and cross something off.
6.       I check my email and Pinterest on my phone before I get out of bed each morning.
7.       My boyfriend is a tall, lanky redhead whom I LOVE.  I’m gonna marry that boy some day.
8.       I have an obsession with fireworks.  I don’t want to shoot them off but I love watching them.  There is something so magical about them.
9.       I am BAD about starting a book and never finishing it.
10.   I love Big Brother and Survivor.  I’ve seen EVERY single episode of both.
11.   I am TERRIFIED of frogs… really, really terrified.

Don't forget about my giveaway!  It ends on August 1st so get your entries in :)
