Tell Me More, Tell Me More!

I decided to link up with Step Into 2nd Grade with Mrs. Lemons for her Tell Me More Linky Party.
I always think it's fun to read about other bloggers, so here you go!
1.  I met my husband in college.  We were both college cheerleaders.  It was so much fun and we have tons of great memories!
2.  Speaking of my husband, let me tell you a short version of his proposal.  We started dating on Halloween 1999.  On Halloween 2002, he created this story about a friend moving out of town and that we were going to do something special for him.  Long story short, we pull up to 19 carved pumpkins spelling, "Jodi Will you marry me?" that he and some friends had carved. He had every detail planned out.  He had even timed how long the candles would stay lit so he could tell my brother when to start lighting them.  We even ended up on the cover of our local newspaper. 

3.  Now we've been married for 8 years and have 2 beautiful daughters.

4.  Anyone that knows me, knows that I am obsessed with Crossfit!  I have always been active and have always worked out, but last September, my husband and I started Crossfit and I fell in love with it.
These pictures are from a competition that I was in last weekend.

5.  I absolutely HATE snakes!!  I never really liked them, but when I was in 6th grade, I found a 6 foot black snake hibernating in my bedroom.  {We lived in the woods.}  I have had a phobia of snakes ever since then.  I don't even like to see pictures of snakes.

6.  My first job was as an Art teacher.  I had no idea what I was doing, but I made the most of it.  It was a job and it got my foot in the door. 

7.  I have been in love with Pinterest for awhile, but I recently got my husband addicted to it as well.  We are just beginning the process of getting ready to remodel our kitchen so he has been on there all the time pinning kitchen ideas.  {So, if you follow me on Pinterest and have noticed Kitchens coming up in odd places, like Back to School boards, that's my husband.  He hasn't quite figured it out yet. Lol!}

8.  My Silhouette Cameo arrived yesterday and I am so excited to start using it.  I made these today to hold pencils.  I would love to hear your ideas for using the Cameo in your classroom.  Please :)

Well, there you go.  Head on over to Mrs. Lemons blog and read about other bloggers.


  1. Awww-that is definitely the first time I've ever heard of a jack-o'lantern proposal--too cute! :)


  2. Aww that proposal was so thoughtful! What a neat story to tell your girls! Was it very hard to figure out the Cameo? I am hesitant to get a Cricut or Cameo because I am worried I won't be able to use them correctly lol!

  8. Your hubby is super creative--I am not familiar with a cameo-so, sorry, but you rock on crossfit. a friend of mine and her husband do documentaries, and just went to LA for some film festival because they made a documentary on cross fit athletes. stop by my blog when you get a chance, I'm having a give away.

  10. I absolutely hate snakes as well! I won't look at pictures of them either (which makes it difficult at school when the boys find out just how much I am terrified of them!).
