Thanks Heather (Pen, Paper, Lots of Coffee)

First I want to say thank you to the blogging community that is part of my blogging world! It's amazing that I have never met some of you, but value and trust your opinion on books! I would really like to thank Heather of Pen, Paper, Lots of Coffee for giving me The Stylish Blogger Award!

Next, I'd like to thank Mask AKA The Blogger Formerly Known As for awarding me The Stylish Blogger Award.

In order to accept the award, I have to:
1.) Thank and link back to the person who gave the award
2.) State 7 things about myself
3.) Pass the award to 15 recently discovered bloggers

Here are seven things about me:
1. I am a high school English teacher
2. I just remodeled a 1905 house this summer ...and still working on it.
3. I wrote a book and working on the next
4. I like really big dogs. Like the bigger, harrier, slobber-ier (sp?)the more to love. One of my dogs is a mastiff.
5. I love to cook
6. I do a Battle of the Classes for my students each year and make them do ridiculous things that make me smile all year long - like dress me up like a rockstar, eat mystery food, play musical chairs as a relay race, put shaving cream on their heads and come up with a hairstyles, put peanut butter on their faces and have some one throw popcorn at their face and see who catches the most popcorn (the list goes on)
7.I love to travel and the farthest place I have gone is London.

My favorite 15 blogs and bloggers are:

Congrats everyone! Thanks for posting!

  2. Oh, I love big dogs!!! :) We had a rottweiler, who passed before Easter last year. We now have two, yes two (we might be a little crazy) German Shepard puppies. :) I'm hoping they get HUGE. :) But I love mastifs. I actually wanted to get one, but there where none around here for sale when we went looking. :)

    Thank you so very much for the kind words and the award!

  3. Congratulations Michele! You are one fun, fine teacher. Thank you for the award, and give those "puppies" a hug from me,(and Mr. Darcy).
