I finally created a YouTube account for my classroom! My school webpage has changed and those are the only videos we are allowed to upload!  So I figured I would share it with you guys as well! The page is "MsLindstromsmath" There will be more to come as we go throughout the year! And my infamous area video will be up on it once I reach that unit in my curriculum! For now here are my two favorite songs/chants we've done so far!

Aussies and Magnets

First off. I love random titles for my posts. I especially love looking back at them!

Anyway, this weekend I had the privilege of being a friend's date to a wedding that he was in. The groom of the wedding was on the Baylor tennis team and is from Australia, so a handle of his "best mates" were in town for the wedding. Basically, I got to hang out with crazy cool Australians all weekend. They were awesome Aussie's and I definitely spent a good part of the evening trying to teach them how to correctly say "y'all." They tried to teach me how to make my accent better... although Melanie already informed me it is still awful. :) Oh well!
My main buddy for the night, Dave!

Fred, Dave, and Tye! They make me look white! ha So tan!

 My newest addition to my apartment! I cannot ever keep track of my bobby pins! I go through so many! I am constantly buying more, so here is my solution. I bought a roll of magnet strips from hobby lobby for 2.99! I cut two strips and placed them in my medicine cabinet. The bobby pins stick right to them! Now I'll have a place to put them and hopefully not lose quite as many! Yay!!
So easy!

6 Confessions

6. I love shoe shopping. This one is a serious addiction. I see a pair of shoes and obsess over them until I buy them. I once had someone ask me how many pairs of shoes I own.. I tried to do a quick count.. probably somewhere around 35? This doesn’t include sandals/flip flops. I’m talking shoes. Here’s the latest pair I bought. I’m 6’2 when I wear them. 6'3 if I tease my hair.

5. I’m obsessed with my closet. My closet is so organized it’s ridiculous. Not only is it color coordinated, but it’s also type of clothes organized within the color. It’s definitely an ocd thing. I don’t like people touching anything in my closet. My room may be a mess, but my closet is always perfect.

4. I am horrible at taking pictures. I love pictures. I love having the memories; I am just horrible at remembering to take them! I always tell myself I’m gonna do better, but this past week I gave my camera to my college roomie for the week because I knew she’d do a better job.

3. I am an old lady at heart. As much as I love going out with my awesome friends. I really love being home, cooking a good dinner, and getting some awesome sleep. Like tonight, I love nights where I can take my Christmas things down, clean my entire apartment, and try and decide which recipe I’m going to cook first in my new crockpot.

2. I love living by myself for one sole reason: I can sing as loud and as often as I want. I’m sure my mom loves hearing my voice and I know Melanie got used to it in college, but now I have free range to just belt it out. Trust me, I sing all sorts of stuff. My opera is getting better. Just kidding. Ish.

1. I am honestly and completely 100% happy with where I am in my life right now. I have friends in all stages of life right now. Some still in school, some who are succeeding in their work already, some in newlywed bliss, some about to be first time parents, and some who are on to baby #2! I’m not really sure where I fit in.. but all I know is I am happy with where I am, who am I, and where I am going. I still plan on growing though, don’t get me wrong. I want to grow as a person and continue to find out what I can do independently, out on my own. I also want to grow in my walk with Christ. There’s always room for improvement and by the end of year, I hope to share how Christ has worked in my life this year.

Christmas Presents!

I can finally post about the presents I made for my family this year!!! :) I have been finished with them since the middle of November, and have had to keep quiet about them! It's the same type of project I've done for my room. I love these gifts.

About 15 hours of work, but I love them. 

Carolines! I re did the bear claw 3 different times!

Hannahs! Her favorite verse!

My moms. I found this on pinterest and adapted to fit us.  I love every "rule" on there. It truly defines my family.
