I think one of the things that my blog could really use to improve is more of a personal touch. I don't think that you, my readers, really know who I am. You don't feel any kind of connection with me, so you don't leave a lot of comments, follow on Facebook, etc. In turn, I don't really know who is reading this blog, except for the few of you who have left comments (thank you!!).
So today we are going to get to know each other. And to bribe you to participate I am going to giveaway one hot pink Blooming Sash Belt to one lucky follower. All you have to do is read a little bit about me, then follow the instructions below to tell me a little bit about you.
Hi. My name is Aubree. I am a happily married wife of about 4 years. Husband is Spencer. We are both from the same town. We are both jr. high teachers. We both have our own side businesses, although his is much bigger. : ) I teach history, health, PE, student council, and yearbook. I run Yellow Blackbird. He teaches Spanish and owns a flooring company.
This is a list of things I love in no particular order: history, WWII propaganda posters, esp. Rosie the Riveter, the movie Tron: Legacy, chocolate ice cream, learning, taking pictures, clothes, shoes, fall, bird watching, brightly colored paint, books, reading, crafting, going to church, music, driving, mornings, roller blading, pasta and playing ski ball.
I strongly dislike ketchup, most all condiments, carrots, when people say "going down" to a northern location and vice versa, late night, and making mistakes.
I wear contacts. I am allergic to nuts. I am terrified of snakes. I have a pretty ridiculous laugh (called the "cackle" by my family). I have a strong conscious and great desire to be a good person. I am a terrible speller. I wish I could be an awesome fashion blogger with lots of great photos. I love to hang out in bookstores and libraries. I know that God lives and loves us. Right now, I am really into nautical stripes, vacation planning, and the new Adele album.
Okay your turn. You have two chances to win the beautiful belt pictured below. For your first entry introduce yourself to me briefly. Perhaps you can mention what state/country you are in and some sort of random fact and/or a link to your blog. Second, leave another comment telling me what you like about Yellow Blackbird and why you follow. Also, what would you like to see more or less of?
Good luck! The contest ends Wednesday, June 8th. The winner will be announced the next day on my Facebook page.
