Let's Get Acquainted Linky Party

I am linking up with Flying into First Grade for the Let's Get Acquainted Linky Party!  This is my first time linking up for this.  I have enjoyed reading every one's posts and decided that this time I was going to link up!
So, here is the game and the code:
TOPIC - Skittles Game
Here is the code:
Red- Favorite Ice Cream Flavor
Orange- Favorite Memory from College
Yellow- Favorite Sports Team
Green- Favorite Fast Food Place
Purple- Wild Card (Tell anything about yourself)
Hmm...Does this give you a hint?  I just happened to have this in my freezer right now!  Don't get me wrong, I love cookie dough, moose tracks, cookies and cream, but my all time favorite is by far mint chocolate chip! 
I don't think that I can pick just one memory from college.  I was just chatting today with a fellow teacher about our college. (We both went to Bowling Green in Ohio and are teachers in NC.)  My college years were some of my favorite years ever. I met some of my best friends in college.  We are still pretty close today!
Here is a picture from our trip to Myrtle Beach during college.
Here is a picture from this last summer of me and my friend Kelly.  She is in the picture from the beach as well!

I love watching sports. I don't really have one favorite sports team.  I am a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals and the Reds.  Those are probably my two favorite professional sports teams.  My brother played football at Northwestern so I still cheer for them in college football.
My favorite fast food restaurant in NC is probably Zaxby's. They have a really good grilled chicken salad served with Texas toast!  I also love a fast food restaurant from Cincinnati called Skyline.  This is my actual favorite, but I know less people will know what Skyline is!  It's Skyline time!
I love to read.  I wasn't really a big reader until I was in fifth grade and was given the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of genres and authors.  I now love to read and that is one reason I look forward to the summer.  During the summer I read anywhere from 1-3 books a week.  During the year I read some, just not as much.  I have not read much at all this school year and I am really looking forward to picking up some good books this summer! 
Thanks for getting acquainted!


  1. So, I love that I just found you because I am also BG alumni! How fun! By the way, I am jealous that you made it to NC to teach!

    1. Yay! Glad you found my blog! I stopped over by yours! NC is beautiful. The weather is what brought me here.

  2. We have so much in common. I'm a BG alum and Cincinnati native as well. I loved BG. It was an amazing college experience. I'm also obsessed with Skyline. I always eat there a couple of times while I'm home visiting. I also love the Reds and Bengals too. I'm about to watch the Reds game right now.

      We do have a Lot in common! There are a ton of BG grads down here. I guess after a few years in the cold and wind we all needed a break! :) ps just talking about Skyline makes me crave a coney!

  3. I love chocolate chip mint TOO! :) We just finished a half gallon at my house! :) I like to eat it with Magic Shell on top and rainbow sprinkles! It's the best way to polish of a tough day! :)

    So nice to meet you! :)
    It's always nice to run into another blogger from first grade! ;)

    I am hosting a linky. It all has to do with one dollar: anything that you buy, sell, find, love, or make for only a dollar. One reader just posted a diet coke—so anything goes!

  7. Thanks for stopping by! I will make sure to check out your blog and linky!

  8. I read a ton in summer too! I wish I could read more during the school year but I can't find the time like in summer!
