My self-summary
I'm a 35 year old BBW in the Dallas area. I work as a middle school reading language arts teacher and a girl's basketball and softball coach, I absolutely love it! I recently (July 2015) adopted a dog from a local shelter. My sweet little doxie is named, Cupcake - Queen of Sprinkles but, her friends just call her Cupcake.

I enjoy movies (indy, docu-dramas, documentaries, comedies are all amongst my favorites). I like to cook and bake, one of my 2015 goals is to cook at home more often. I love checking out museums, going to the zoo, or taking in a performance at Shakespeare in the Park. I enjoy a night out with family or friends but a night at home playing board games and exchanging funny anecdotes also has a special place in my heart.
What I’m doing with my life
I finished my masters degree a few years ago in literacy education and I'm contemplating going back for a PhD.

I'm looking forward to learning new things. Last summer I took a cooking class, a pottery class and a few jewelry making classes. I'm hoping to find someone who might want to attend an evening of glass blowing with me...sounds like an interesting date night, right?

I recently joined Weight Watchers and so far I've lost 100lbs in the last 11 months. I workout several times a week with friends and occasionally I just put on my shoes and go for a nice walk at White Rock. I want to be healthier and be a role model for my students and the athletes I coach.
I’m really good at
A few years ago, I learned that I'm pretty good with a blow torch! One might ask would she know this? That's an excellent should ask me. Until then..look who has an aire of mystery about them? :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I've received a few compliments about my smile and my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: There's a lot of them, but a good majority of them are young adult fiction, since I'm always on the lookout for things to use in our curriculum at school. I do a good deal of nonfiction reading for work and enjoyment.

Movies: Also a long five though.. Love Actually, The Breakfast Club, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original is the best), 50/50, The Upside of Anger. Lately, I've been drawn to older classic and cult classic movies. I love the Alamo Drafthouse for this reason. Taking my six year old nephew to see ET on the big screen was epic. He loved it!

Music: Top 40 and contemporary country. Although, my heart will always belong to John Mayer. He's brilliant, he comes off a little douchy, but he's brilliant with words and skill.

Shows: Big Bang Theory, Law & Order SVU, How to Get Away With Murder, How I Met Your Mother, This Is Us, The Goldbergs, Fresh Off the Boat, Modern Family, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, 20/20, Dateline, almost anything on the Food Network.
Six things I could never do without
I could probably live without these things, but I don't want to...
1. Game nights with friends and family (we're a highly competive group of people)
2. Conversation (I love talking to people and learning about their lives and thoughts)
3. Handbags (they're not only functional, they're cute)
4. Curling up under the blankets, cat napping while watching old movies when the weather is cold or rainy
5. Yellow cake with chocolate icing (it's classic)
6. Creative outlets (writing, cooking, painting, jewelry making, creating things for my classroom, etc.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future, long term goals, and how to get over my terrible stage fright. I almost fainted when I let my best friend (our school's music teacher) talk me into singing in the school talent show. Put me in front of 30 kids to teach writing, no problem. Put me on a stage to perform or even present an award or speech and I almost faint.
On a typical Friday night I am
On Friday nights I'm usually watching tv, out at the movies, having dinner with friends or family and I might be found perusing for books at Half Price.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Shamefully, a few years ago I told my students that one of our pet hamsters died from being sick and the vet couldn't do anything to save him. I didn't have the heart to tell them that Mario actually killed his brother, Luigi. Last thing we needed was rampant fear that a killer was amongst us. In the teacher's lounge, Mario became known as, "Murder Hamster".

I can't deal with people who don't know how to use punctuation. I get it, it's a text message...but there's no hard, fast rule that says you can't follow punctuation and capitalization rules. Remember, "let's eat grandpa!" means something completely different than "let's eat, grandpa." Don't look like a cannibal.
You should message me if
You should message me if you're a goal oriented, intelligent guy with a good sense of humor, and you'd like to fall victim to the witty and delightful charms of this BBW.
