List 3 random facts about you!

Fact 1- I'm a teacher, but not working until my last baby is in school. I really miss teaching, though! My degree is in secondary education, but I taught Kindergarten for a year after college and I'm definitely going back to that!

Fact 2- I had gestational diabetes with my last pregnancy and my blood sugar is already a little high with this pregnancy. I've been on a diabetic diet from the start of pregnancy, so hopefully that helps keep in under control. It's kind of a good thing, though, cause I'm HUNGRY and all the protein is helping me not eat everything in the house. Wink

Fact 3- I've lived in 4 states- Oregon, Washington, Texas, and Oklahoma.
