Let's Get Aquainted!

I am linking up with Mrs. Reed over at Flying into First.  She's hosting an awesome linky party! 

So, what does this linky party entail?  Well, you have to take a look at this Tic-Tac-Toe chart and choose three of the categories to discuss.  They must line up  as they would if you were playing Tic-Tac-Toe.  This is a great way to get to know some of our fellow bloggers!  Here's the chart:

I'm going to go with the third vertical column.  I'm a little sad that it has nothing to do with school, but, I like these categories!  So, here goes...

Dream Vacation:  This one I am having some trouble with because I have SOOOOOOO many!  I love to cruise, but, I think I am going to go with something else here.  My dream vacation would be to spend one whole month in Europe!  There are quite a few countries that I would love to visit in Europe.  Here is the list in no specific order:  Portugal, UK, France, Ireland and Italy.  To spend at least one week in each country would be amazing!  I would love to visit Portugal because I am half Portuguese.  I would love to see where my grandmother was born and grew up.  I am also part Italian, so beside the historical aspect of Italy, I'd really like to see the culture.  Ireland and France are on the list because they both have such beautiful aspects about them.  And, I am also part English, so visiting the UK would also be intriguing.

Books I'm Reading:  I am currently reading Francona: The Red Sox Years.
  I am a huge Red Sox fan and I am fascinated with Terry Francona.  He was such a great coach for the Red Sox, so, reading his account of the years he spent in Boston is really interesting.  I am about half-way through the book and am hoping to have it finished by the end of the month.  Once I am finished with that I am moving on to the Kingdom Keepers
 I am a huuuuuge Disney fan, so I am very interested in starting this series.  My co-teacher actually bought me my first book in this series.  I can't wait to get it started!

Hobbies:  My two favorite hobbies are photography and cake decorating.  I love, love, love to photograph things!  Here is a photo of one of our poppy flowers:

My other hobby is cake decorating, although I have been doing a lot of cupcake baking.  Here are some of my goodies:

So, that's about it for me!  Head on over and link up, too!

  1. The chocolate cakes with cream filling look so delicious! Photography and cake decorating... that's a combo that could easily fill up a pinterest board or two. Those are fun hobbies.

    1. Hi Sarah!

      We love to vacation in North Conway! :) We are down in SE Mass, close to RI and the Cape. Teacher blogging doesn't seem to be as big up here in NE like it is in other parts of the country. Maybe we can start a movement! :)
