Lovely and Versatile?!

Thank you so much to all the terrific bloggers who have honored me with The Versatile Blogger and One Lovely Blog awards during the last week!

Thank you to....
Stephanie from  Fifth Grade Dugout
Hilary from Fifth Grade Fancy
Teri from 5th Grade Tomfoolery
Jessica from The Polka-Dotted Teacher 
Mrs. G from Mrs. G in Grade 3

The Versatile Blogger: Rules
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.

One Lovely Blog Rules
1. Follow the person that gave you the award.
2. Link back to the person that gave you the award.
3. Pass the award on to 15 new bloggers.

Here are my 7 RANDOM FACTS!
1. I'm an avid Scrabble player - it's my favorite App on my new phone. (Username callen610 if you want to play!)
2. My two favorite movies are The Princess Bride & Moonstruck and I can quote just about every line. (But I'll refrain because that can get uber annoying quickly.)
3. I can't throw a frisbee to save my life. Seriously - it just snags on my fingers and goes flying in the exact opposite direction I intended. I almost took out my brother playing Kan Jam last summer.
4. I've never been west of Buffalo, but I've been to England & Scotland. My favorite places were The Tower of London, Stonehenge, and Hampton Court.
5. I like to create mosaics, but they take me forever to complete.
6. My parents named me after the Bob Dylan song, "Corrina, Corrina" - and almost had it be my first and middle name to honor the song. (Thank you Grandma for talking my Mom out of that one!)
7. I love podcasts! My top three are: RadioLab, Stuff You Should Know (Chuck & Josh ROCK!), and A Way With Words. I have a little voice crush on Grant Barrett. :-) 

So...although many of these blogs have already been honored by these awards, I'd still like to pay it forward and pass along a few of my favorites that I keep coming back to.
1. Runde's Room
2. Ramblings of a 5th Grade Teacher
3. Think, Wonder & Teach
4.{6th Grade} All-Stars
5. 3rd Grade Thoughts
6. Finding Joy in 6th Grade
7. Classroom DIY
8. Superlative Six
9. The Teaching Thief
10. Ms. Fultz's Corner
11. Stellar Students
12. Thinking Out Loud
13. Tales from Outside the Classroom
14. A Teacher's Treasure
15. Making It As A Middle School Teacher

Thanks for stopping by and hope you get a chance to check out some of these terrific blogs!
