Teacher Week- Blog Hoppin' {Meet the Teacher}

Hey there! This week I am linking up with Blog Hoppin' for their Teacher week! I participated last year and got to see so many amazing teacher's, so I'm very excited to be linking up with them again! Now, I know you may have read my "Meet the Teacher" post from a few weeks ago when I linked up with Falling into First, so this post may be similar, but I'm going to try my best to include some fun facts about myself! YAY…for fun, useless information about Megan! 

Let's get started! 

My name is Megan and I am a 25 year old, First grade Teacher from Eastern Nebraska! I am a creator, teacher, blogger and fiancé!  I have been teaching for 4 glorious years and I couldn't be happier!  My very first teaching job took me away from the city and to a lovely farming community straight north of my home town. My first year I taught First Grade, but missed being close to home. At the end of my first year I received the opportunity to move back to my home and district that I grew up in to teach 4th grade.  Needless to say, 4th was a HUGE change that I loved, but I missed my adorable firsties. Now, I have been teaching First grade for 2 years in my hometown and I'm lovin' every minute of it! 

In June, I will be marrying the man of my dreams! My fiancé is a wonderful man who supports all of my crazy ideas…most of the time. We have been together for almost 3 years (bless his soul) and we can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together!   On August 30th (the first Husker game!), we will have been engaged for one year! Yes, we have had a LONG engagement, but I think it has made planning easier and much more enjoyable. With that being said, this year is going to be crazy and I can't wait! I'm sure you will see many photos and blog posts about this crazy, hectic year, so be sure to follow along for the ride! 

My fiancé and I are the parents to this crazy, bearded schnauzer. Say hello to Kyle, our miniature schnauzer and spoiled rotten fur baby. Yes, you read that right, his name is KYLE…we know it is a human name and we find it to be hilarious especially when you see us running down the street shouting after him and having our neighbors think that we are yelling at  a human child. Trust me…seeing people's faces when we tell them the name of our dog never gets old!  If you follow me on Instagram you know that I am completely obsessed with this fur ball! Yes, I am a crazy dog lady that is absolutely in love with my furry child, but  how can you not?! He is do darn cute and his has his own hashtag on Instagram…he is pretty cool, folks!

Now, for some fun (useless) facts about Megan: 

1. I am obsessed with temporary tattoos. I am terrified of needles (along with pain), plus I have SUPER sensitive skin, so I don't know if I will ever get a real one, but I love them!  The one pictured above is my favorite and I'm hoping one day that I will get enough courage to get it stuck on permanently (sorry mom!).  I am also very indecisive so I never know where exactly to put it…wrist…foot…wrist…foot?! I just can't decide! What do you think…should I make is permanent or stick to the temporary one's for fun?

2. I LOVE THE HUSKERS! If you don't know anything about Nebraska, here is one thing you need to know….WE LIVE FOR HUSKER ATHLETICS! We aren't known to be the Greatest fans in college football for nothin'! We live and die for Husker game days and have a blast while doing it! If you have never been to Lincoln, Nebraska on game day, I strongly suggest you do (and let me know if you do)! It is once in a lifetime experience and I promise you will have a blast!  Now, in this photo I promise I am smiling about my awesome Husker gear, I had just had my wisdom teeth out and was having trouble smiling without popping my stitches (yuck)…but I promise I was super stoked for my husker gear!

3. I have met BRANTLEY GILBERT!  Please excuse the ridiculous laughing smiles, but we were extremely giddy to meet him (and there may have been an inappropriate joke made by someone right before the photo was taken). I'm 5'3" and he wasn't a whole lot taller than I was, but my goodness I love his music!  

4. I have naturally curly/wavy hair!  Honestly, it can kind of be a pain sometimes, but on the days that it works it is awesome! Most of the time you will see my hair straight, but on a rare occasion you will see the natural waves come out.  Having curly hair can be awesome except for when you want it to be straight and it rains or is extremely humid…then it's not so awesome.  I sometimes feel like I look like Medusa when I wear my hair curly so I usually only save it for rainy days or days where I just don't want to mess with my hair. 

So, there ya have it, that is me in a nutshell folks! For some of you, you have now "met me" twice. I hope you enjoyed getting to know me and laughed at least once while you were reading.  Feel free to stick around and browse my "Blog party" or check out the other amazing teachers linking up on Blog Hoppin'! Check back tomorrow for my post about my classroom! 

Thanks for stoppin' by!
