Skittles: Let's Get Acquainted

I was absolutely shocked to hear the news about the Boston Marathon this afternoon. I lived in Boston for 2 years and watching the marathon inspired me to run 5 marathons of my own. Never would I expect a bomb to go off during a marathon! I can't imagine running 26 miles and then having to run away from an explosion.

If you're like me tonight, I'm trying to find a few light hearted things to read tonight.  I decided to link up with Flying Into First Grade's Let's Get Acquainted Linky

This week's topic is a Skittles Game!

Favorite Ice Cream - Mint Chocolate Chip! I really like the Publix Yogurt Mint - it has balls of mint in it.  

Favorite Memory From College - All I can think of is my most embarrassing moment EVER. I was taking a history class (by the same professor I had for several classes - I really enjoyed his assignments). Well, the class was US History 20th century. The first day of class he called me and another student to the white board to write down other students' thoughts about US History in the 20th century. Students were shouting out answers. 

Let's just preface with, I'm not the best speller.

Someone said "Atomic bomb." Well, I totally blanked on what to write, so I had to ask "How do you spell bomb?" (In a 3000 level college class)

But that's not it.

After someone told me, I wrote boob on the board.

BOOB, people!  On the first day of class!!! 

Favorite Sports Team - I'm not big into sports, which is rare in the South! I cheer for Georgia Tech, mainly because all of my high school friends went to UGA.  Luckily, I married into a family that cheers for Georgia Tech.

I accidentally typed "Teach" instead of "Tech" first. Yeah, that would have been funny if that got posted!

Hopefully if you cheer for UGA we can still be friends.

Favorite Fast Food - Chick-fil-a!

Anything About Yourself - I have 13 nieces and nephews with 2 more on the way! One on the way is a boy and we'll know about the other one in a few weeks. There are only 5 out of the 13 that are girls (and 4 of them live in other countries). If I'm ever lucky enough to have a baby, I think it'll be a boy!

I also wanted to mention a few giveaways!

Amanda from Teaching Maddeness is hosting a giveaway for a Mother's Day and Father's Day Magazine.
