2013 Ultimate Blog Party

I am linking up with 5MinutesforMom.com for their 7th anual blog hop.  You can to by clicking the image above!  The goal of the blog hop is to meet new friends and learn about them and their blog.  Here's the 4-1-1 on me...
My name is Dana and I live in Tennessee.  Smack dab in the middle.  Seriously.  The middle of the state marker is just a few miles away from where I sit right now.
I have 2 daughters who are soon to be 11 and 17-birthday's in April and May.
I have a BS in Early Childhood Ed and a Master's in Library Science.  I teach 1st, but want to be a school librarian when I grow up.  This may be happening soon...more info to come ;)
I've taught for 11 years (k-2nd) and was voted Teacher of the Year at my school this year!
I love Target, The Walking Dead, Downton Abbey, and Teacher's Pay Teachers.
Now about my blog- It will turn 1 on April 23rd!!  It's been quite the experience.  I admit, I am a little obsessed with watching the numbers (stats, followers, comments, etc).  I started writing it after a few months of reading other blogs.  I wanted to be a part of the blogging community.  I have made so many (online) friends through blogging!  If you are thinking about getting started in the blogging world, I say go for it!  I've learned so much this past year.  As a way of giving back, I feature new bloggers every Tuesday on my blog. If this is your first time to stop by my blog, I thank you and hope you'll come back often!
Here are a few pics that kind of describe me...
