Party Time!

So, I've been contemplating on weather or not to do this.  Mainly because of time, but I found a few spare moments and thought what the hay!

  So a blog called 5 Minutes for Mom started this Ultimate Blog Party about 5 years ago so others could get to know each other and find new blogs. I am suppose to tell you all my dirty little secrets and get real personal...well, only the good stuff. ;)  Here goes nothing....

My name is Jessi and I'm in my 30's.  I've been married to a very loving, supportive, handsome man for the past 3.5 years.  We just had a beautiful baby boy in November.  His name is Spencer Emery and he has become my ray of sunshine.  Life as a full time teacher, full time wife/mommy is slowly starting to braid it self together.  Some of my hobbies include, crafting, camping, yoga, reading and now blogging!  I'm also a Christian who loves my Lord!  I have a wonderful church and I am so blessed to have them in my life. 

My Blog:
My blog started off as a way to connect to other teachers, get ideas and also share mine.  I've been working in the Early Childhood sector for approx. 15 years! I really do love what I do.  I've been through some jobs that made me think otherwise, but for the past 6 years I've found an environment that really agrees with me.  So, with my great job, I'm able to do what I want in my classroom which makes for an extremely loving, relaxed, stress free teacher!  We have a lot of fun with crafts, games, songs, and just good old play!  My blogs name came from a nickname my mom gave me, Messy Jessi.  (I guess I wasn't always the tidiest of kids growing up...which is funny because now I'm organized and like to have a neat area!)  We don't always get "messy", but I'm definitely not afraid of a little mess.  A lot of my ideas come from other blogger's, online resources, teacher resource books or my own crazy little noggin'. 

So that's it in a nut shell!  If you like what I've got to say or not become my follower!  You never know what's going to pop up on my blog! 


  1. It definitely shows that you love the kids! S has thrived in your class, and I can't wait for R to have her turn - and believe, me, she can't wait either. "When do I get to go to Ms. Jessi's class?" She asks EVERY DAY! Bring on summer!

  2. Visiting from UBP - and your newest follower. Looking forward to some great ideas for my preschooler! Ever need a book suggestion? Stop by Little Srout Books

  3. Hi Jessi! I'm visiting from the UBP11. I have a 3-1/2 yr old son who started preschool last November. He goes to the Early Childhood Special Ed class in our area. Following you now. I hope you get a chance to visit my blog too.

  4. What a fabulous blog title and image! I have a couple of little ones as well and always enjoy finding blogs that share activities and such! Happy partying!

  5. Lily has been calling you Messy Jessy all week, she thinks it's pretty hilarious :) We had a great time meeting you on Friday/Saturday, looking forward to August!
