Let's Get Acquainted... NOUNS! And some giveaways

Happy Monday!! I'm usually not a fan of Mondays, but I'm LOVING this Spring-break-Monday! I'm also LOVING Flying Into First Grade's weekly Let's Get Acquainted linky parties! I think everyone else is too! They're a big hit!!

This week's theme is the noun game! You have to name your favorite person, place, thing, and animal! Here are mine! 
This was pretty hard 'cause I have LOTS of favorite people, but my MOST favorite of all is my baby girl, Makenzie!! She is truly the light of my life. She's the kindest, sweetest, most loving, and most hilarious little girl I know. I'm so blessed to be her mommy. This is a picture from the first day of pre-k this year. I can't believe how much she's grown in these last 8 months! I also can't believe i'm signing her up for Kindergarten next week! Waaaahhhh.... I wish she would stop growing up. We have a "boo-hoo" breakfast at our school every first day of school for our kinder mommies and daddies. I get it now... {tear}
This was a LOT easier! My all time favorite place is Key West, Fl! It's SO much fun!! My husband and I decided that we'd probably have the MOST fun on our honeymoon if we just drove down there... and we DID! I hope we're able to go back this Summer. It's been 6 years since we've been there, so I think it's time!
Hello my name is Jackie, and I have a technology addiction. If I'm not on my laptop, I'm on my iPhone. God help us all if I ever get the iPad that I want! 
This pup is my old dog, Cassi. She passed away in November of 2010 at the age of 14. She was the quirkiest dog ever, but she was SOOOO sweet, and she was my first baby. She was originally my sister's dog. My sis got her the day I graduated from high school, and she was hers until she went to college. My mom couldn't bring her to her new condo when she moved, so I brought Cassi down to Florida with me when I moved here. We haven't had the heart to get a new dog yet, even though Makenzie asks us almost everyday. Maybe one day soon. 

Now for some giveaways... check them out by clicking on each picture... they're all awesome! 



Hope you liked my "nouns" and all of those giveaways!! I'm off to do something springy... maybe rake up some leaves from this past winter, or work on my 3rd grade number of the day packet. =)  Enjoy your day!!

  4. I found your blog through the linky party! It is very hard to watch your little girl go to kindergarten:) My little girl is 12 and is a full blown tween. I do wish I had been able to hold onto the pink and princess days a little bit longer.

  6. Key West is one of my favorites, too! Steven and I went there for our 3 year anniversary, but it rained the ENTIRE time (which they kept telling us NEVER happens). We need to plan another trip soon!

  7. Awww, your daughter is so cute!!! They grow so fast!!

    I am with you on the technology!! ;O)

    Your dog looked just like the one I grew up with. So sweet, and she was the sweetest, too. We just lost our (my husband and my) first dog together last year, and she was the best ever! It's so hard to lose a pet or imagine getting another!! No two dogs are alike!

  8. My daughter started kindergarten this year. Although I thought it would be a sad moment for my last child to enter kindergarten, I'm so happy to have her come to school with me every day! Is that the glitter paper you were telling me about? Love it!
