#TeacherWeek 15!! -- Fun Facts Monday

Hey y'all! I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin's #TeacherWeek15 !! 
Today is...

So here it goes...

I am married to my very best friend! We have been together for 10 YEARS and will be celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary this November! <3 

Andrew is the definition of Real Men Marry Teachers. He's the most patient man I know and always encourages me to be the best teacher I can be. 
I'm a K-1 looping teacher!! ... What is that you ask? Well, it means that I start with one group of kindergarten students, and then "loop" with them to 1st grade for another year. Having the same students for 2 years is amazing. While looping has it's pros and cons, the relationships I am able to make with each student and their families are incredible. I wouldn't trade it for anything. 
My class two years ago- right before I got married and became Mrs. Saxon :)
Same group 2 years later! 
This is my 6th year teaching and I'm back in Kindergarten starting my 3rd loop with a whole new group!  Beginning with a brand new batch of kinder babies is always insane exciting! 
I have the cutest dog known to man. 
Meet Baxter. 
He's a Morkie (Maltese & Yorkie mix) and he's spoiled rotten. 
Soooo much puppy love for this guy!

I have a very unhealthy  obsession with Fixer Upper. 
Y'all if I could just be Joanna Gaines for just a day, I'd be happy. 
I'd even settle for just being her BFF.
Make that- I'd settle to just MEET her! 

Because of her, I have become completely obsessed with the "farmhouse" style and my house is now exactly that. I've never met a rugged old piece of wood or an old antique window that I haven't contemplated bringing home.
My friend, Katy and I made a trip to Waco to visit their little shop on Bosque. 
I may have cried and screamed when we pulled up. 
No shame. 
I'm now the proud owner of a Magnolia coffee mug and tea towel #cantaffordthemagnoliawreath

Can't wait for the new Silos location to open in October. You can bet I'll be there opening weekend! 
Painting my nails is my favorite boredom killer. I got so tired of spending way too much money on going to get my gel nails done- so Mom had a genius idea for me to get the at home gel kit. 
I'm in love! 
Best. Purchase. Ever. and has saved me SO much money!! 

Hop on over to Blog Hoppin' to link up for Teacher Week so we can get to know 5 fun facts about you!! 
Come back Wednesday for this year's Classroom Reveal. So excited to show you my room! 
(And yes, you read that right- I skipped Tuesday. That's because Tuesday is Make Ahead Meals and this girl doesn't cook. )


  1. I'm so glad to meet another looper!
    We are a rare breed!

  2. I would love to loop at some point in my career! I changed schools within my district (we only have two elementary schools) and two of my kiddos I have again! I absolutely love it!
