Let's Get Acquainted

I am a sucker for a good linky... I've been watching this one float around and I missed last weeks... So here I am hookin' up with Latoya @ Flying into First Grade

for the NOUN Game :)

My favorite little Person would have to be my son.  He is my miracle. 
He came into this world a tad bit early  
(3 months to be exact)
...Because as we say, he wanted some extra snuggle time with his mom and dad. :)
He spent 75 days in the NICU (I know it is that many because I was there every.single.day and knew every nurse, doctor, and valet by name).    He is now 5 years old and the happiest, healthiest, cutest, sweetest little thing I know :)

8 days old- 2.6 pounds
He is holding a very small white stuffed dog.. you'd never know how tiny that dog is because he is so little

5 years old- and HUGE :)
He's holding the same stuffed dog :)

Ok, Tori- pull yourself together... you've got more acquainting to do...

Does my chair by my computer count?  I feel like I'm there A LOT! hehe...

Probably one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to is Banff, Canada.  We arrived at night so I had no idea the beauty of the mountains until I walked outside the next morning. You know the saying... "it took my breath away?"  Well that is exactly what happened.  It was that amazing!

I'm going to say it... ok, no I'm not... YES I am...

My phone.  Ok, I said it.
If someone can be addicted to a phone... I most certainly am.  And it is getting worse.. I check it during school {gasp!}

I think I need cell phone anonymous.

Here's another thing I'll admit (man, who decided to do this linky... I'm spilling all kinds of stuff)... I LOVE LOVE LOVE....


I seriously freak out when I see one walking on the side of the road.  If I'm close by... you better believe I'm there in a flash to pet that guy...
Who wouldn't love that face??

I don't know if it is the wrinkles or the rolls- but they get me every time.  <3

I'm coming up on my 1 year blogversary!  I can't even believe its been one year already!!

Not sure how I will celebrate just yet... but I do know that everything in my store will be on sale this weekend! :)


  1. That's adorable that your son still has that same dog, and it's absolutely crazy just how small it actually is. Looking at the first picture you would have never guessed.

    And no worries about the cell phone - with technology now, I think we all are! :)

    1. I know... I look at those pics and just shake my head! Yeah... I'm reading all the other link-ups and I think most people said phone or computer :)

  2. My little one was born early too, not as early as yours- mine was 7 weeks early. Isn't it amazing to watch them grow?

  7. I just found your blog and I love it! I am newly back in the classroom after taking time off to raise my 4 children. I love your class cheers from September. Would it be possible for you to email me a copy of them?

  8. I love your son's pictures. What a beautiful miracle.

  9. Hi Tori:
    I found your blog through the "Get Acquainted" link up. Your son is SO cute. And to see that tiny being with that "big" stuffed dog... and then later with that sweet grin... yep, that's miracle material.
    Thanks for sharing...
