Assess Me!

It's summer break. No time to thing about that "A" word, UNLESS you're linking up with The Tattooed Teacher for a fun link up!



1. I talk to myself...sometimes. Is it ok as long as no one else hears me??
2. Not superstitious at all. This one time..at band camp...I walked under a ladder. My friends threw salt at me so I wouldn't bring them bad luck. Soooo that incident made me not like superstitions anymore. HAHA!!
3. No knuckle cracking here! My mama said my fingers would be fat when I go older if I popped them. I'm 35 and have skinny knuckles...That's the only skinny thing about me! lol
4. We just had lunch at Wendy's. Not hungry right now.
5. Yes, my tv is on. Once we got home from church, I turned on Hulu to watch the last season of Revenge. So sad the series is ending!!
6. I have 1 wisdom tooth. 
7. I have not showered today. I showered last night because it is a mad house here on Sunday mornings getting ready for church.
8. I have been to Disney. I went 19 years ago with my school band. I hope to take my kids there next summer!
9. My vision is great so no glasses needed! :)
10. I do live in the state I was born in. I live 3 miles from the house I grew up in. 

Assessment time!! If you would like to get to know someone new, link up here.

Periscope is my new addiction

In a very short time, we have all jumped aboard the "P" word. That's right friends, Periscope.  It is da bomb!! Although I didn't need another addiction, I'm glad I jumped on the band wagon. I have met so many great teachers.  Before joining Periscope, I had actually never heard of Sheila Jane Teaching. I know that's bad. BUT I know who she is now!! :)) 

I've made one very short periscope video. Thanks for the hearts if you threw one at me. :) If you're not following me and would like to, my username is @mrschristysleap. If you have an account, please leave your info in the comments and I will follow you! Sheila Jane Teaching is having a link up. Teacher bloggers are writing about periscope and linking up to meet new bloggers. You can link up here

In other news, I made a facebook account for my blog! WooHoo!! If you want to check it out, you can click here. I'm excited about it!

Sunday Scoop

This has been such a good week! Although I didn't get to go to Vegas, I really enjoyed reading all the posts and seeing everyone's pics. Oh Ya'll Periscope. Isn't it something?? I'm sooo addicted! I love it when I look at my phone and see a notification that someone is LIVE! I've found new blogs to stalk and talked to several new people. I love that we can now put faces, voices, and personalities with the blogs we follow. 

I'm linking up for Sunday Scoop. If you would like to join in, link up here. 
 

1. * Even though I'm nervous, I will do a periscope video tomorrow. Pinky Promise!
    * My husband bought groceries this weekend and didn't but any chocolate. How am I suppose to stay in this house next week with three boys and NO oreos?!?! Come on!!
    *  Yep, it's that time again. It's time for me to go back to school and work in my classroom. I had planned on doing the cute instagram bulletin board that a lot of people have pinned on pinterest. Well, two other teachers as my school have already put it up soooo I guess I better find a different bulletin board idea...(sigh)
2. *This is the first year I've participated with the BlogHoppin scavenger hunt. It's so much fun!! There's a few on the list that I will never find. BUT I can't wait to ask my principal to get criss cross apple sauce and take a pic! HAHA!!!
   *I have a ton of teacher blogs that I follow. I have 500ish Instagram teachers I follow. I just realized that I'm not following all of my ig friends blogs. I have to fix that!!
3.  *Last but not least, cuddling with my three boys. Tonight, we jumped on my bed and watched Barney. Yes, I said that right. BARNEY! My 19 month old loves that purple dinosaur. My family is hoping this phase passes quickly!!

Link up and let us know what your Sunday Scoop is!

Work It Wednesday

I am lovin' everyone's photos from Vegas. I'm very a little jealous but I'm happy my blogging friends are having the time of their lives!  I had lunch with a coworker today. We agreed that we WILL go to Vegas next year!

I'm linking up with Katie for Work It Wednesday.

At the end of the school year, I had NO energy. I was mopping around and was feeling sorry for myself. June 1st I made a commitment that I would begin working out. NOT for a few weeks, this must be a life style change. As the summer as passed, I have learned that I enjoy jogging on my treadmill. I feel better, I am in a better mood, and I am realizing that I'm stronger that I ever thought I was. This is a WIN, WIN situation!!

637.6 calories burned is a HUGE to me!!
 

I jogged/walked 4.5 miles. Never walked that far before. EVER!

Katie inspires me on her instagram account. Here's the link if you want to follow her amazing progress.
