Monday Meet Me!

I've gotta admit, 'getting to know you' posts are my absolute favourite to read!  I guess I must be super nosey. :)  This week as part of their Summer Bloggin' series The Teaching Tribune is hosting 'Monday Meet Me' - perfect to get to know your favourite bloggers better - and maybe to meet some new ones!

Here's a little bit of random info about me:

I teach 4 and 5 year olds in their first formal year of school.  Here in Queensland it's called Prep, but most other places around the world it'd be called Kindergarten.  I LOVE it, I have definitely found my niche. :)

I have a pretty wonderful life - I live 2 minutes walk from a gorgeous beach, I have a great job, a wonderful family and a pretty special man who loves me.

I watch anything reality based... but dating/romance shows are my fave.  As we speak I'm watching 'Come Date With Me' - one of those elimination dating shows.

I'll listen to any type of music.  Growing up my Mum always had the radio on so I literally know the words to pretty much any song that I hear - doesn't matter if they are old or new, well known or not!  I can't stand silence, so at home I play Pandora when I'm cleaning or working.  

I read way too many blogs!  I have to set a time limit on how long I spend perusing Bloglovin' because I just LOVE searching for new classroom ideas and getting to know teachers from all around the world.

I do things in a round-about, illogical way.  I have the attention span of a flea and will forget that I'm right in the middle of a task and move on to something else.  I drive myself completely crazy sometimes and say to myself "Finish what you started, Lauren!"on a regular basis. :)  Please tell me this is normal?

Link up to 'Monday Meet Me' so I can visit and get to know you better, too!  I'm going to read one post in between each report card comment I write.  Tomorrow is 'Two for Tuesday' so I also need to plan which 2  of my TpT products I'll offer for 50% off.  :)


P.S. There's still a few more hours left in my 'pin it to win it' giveaway if you'd like to join in!

  2. Thanks so much for linking up! I am thinking that if we lived closer, there would be lots for use to talk about... if you could drag me away from the beach! THAT is my dream - to live close to the beach!

  3. I wish I had your discipline when it comes to trolling Bloglovin'
    I spend hours on there and end up coming away from it with so many ideas and no idea where to start!

  4. I live 45 minutes away from the beach and 2 minutes from the bay for the past 10 years and just want to keep moving closer! I love the whole lifestyle that comes with living on a bay and near the beach!

  5. Ahhhhhhhhhhh....the beach! How nice!
    Very nice to "meet" you!

  6. We might not be able to share a bookshelf, Lauren... that would just mean we would need MORE bookshelves! ;) I'm pretty much the same with music, though!
