Another blog award!!!

I'm soooo excited to have received my second blog award!  A BIG thank you to Katie from Dirty Hands and Lesson Plans for awarding me with the Versatile Blogger award!

The rules for this award are as follows:

1.  Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2.  Include a link to their site.
3.  Include the award image in your post.
4.  Give 7 random facts about yourself
5.  Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.
6.  When nominating, include a link to their site.
7.  Let other bloggers know they've been nominated.

So, seven random facts about myself are:
1. I ran my first marathon at the age of 42!  It was on my bucket list but I never thought I would actually accomplish it.  I'll be running my second (and last) marathon this October in Chicago at the age of 43.
2. My name is spelled Aimee instead of Amy because my mom hated the name but my dad insisted on naming me.
3. I was awarded Elementary Teacher of the Year by my school district in 2008.  One of the highlights of my teaching career.
4. When I was in kindergarten I sang Delta Dawn in the talent show because I wanted to be a country music singer when I grew up.  Funny thing is... I can't carry a tune and I hate country music!
5. I have a crazy memory when it comes to dates and numbers.  I can, given a date, usually tell you what I was doing on that date and what I was wearing.  
6. I am a thyroid cancer survivor.
7. I absolutely HATE to cook.  My husband does all the cooking at our house.  He is police lieutenant and is currently on 2nd shift.  My daughters and I are starving to death!

Drum roll please, I am now nominating the following blogs...

 Jackie at 3rd Grades a Charm
 Krista at Stellar Students
 Darleen at Third Grade Love
 Yvonne at Sassy in Second
 Lyndsey at A Year of Many Firsts
 April at Wolfelicious

On a side note, I'm almost at 100 followers!!  I'll be giving away a FREEBIE to everyone when I reach 100!
