Two Truths and A Lie: Tell All Tuesday



Updated Information is in TEAL!

We hope you are enjoying your summer thus far.  We have been enjoying taking a few weeks off (from working on school-related stuff) to refresh and breathe.

Today, we are super thrilled to be linking up with our friends at Teach.Talk.Inspire and A Day in K to bring you "Two Truths and A Lie: Tell All Tuesday."


We've met some really creative people through the blogging world and we are linking up to tell you about ourselves.


We are two teachers from Birmingham, AL.  We currently teach Kindergarten in a K-2 primary school.  We have 14 kindergarten units!  Can you imagine?!?!  We joined the blogging world a little over a year ago and have LOVED every minute of it.  We have met some of the sweetest people and have learned so much from so many inspiring educators.

Something else that you may not know about us is that we are POLAR OPPOSITES!  We love each other fiercely, but have only a few things in common.   We have different tastes in clothes, music, movies, outdoor activities…basically we bonded solely on our passion for education.  Over the years, we have become very fond of each others' differences and even celebrate them!  (Cue Paula Abdul's "Opposites Attract") HA!

Now, let's play a little game…
Below are three "facts" about ourselves.  Two are true statements and one is a lie.
If you are the FIRST person to comment with the correct lie, you will get to pick one of our products (under $5.00) for free!

Congrats to Tiffani Humphries for being the FIRST commenter to guess correctly!  If you also guessed that Number 1 was our lie, we'd like to give you a free product, as well!  To claim your "prize", please email us at markersandmascara@gmail.com and let us know which product you would like for FREE (under $5.00)!  And, thank you for stopping by!  Congratulations!

#1: Both, Ashley and Brooklynn, graduated from the same university. 
THIS IS THE LIE!  
Ashley graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Brooklynn graduated from Auburn University.  *We did graduate from the same high school….one year apart.  However, we did not know each other in high school.  Ashley is a die-hard University of Alabama fan and Brooklynn bleeds orange and blue.  In case you aren't aware, by living in the great state of Alabama- you are required to pick of the two universities: Auburn or Alabama!  You must devote yourself wholly to all things related to that university and you cannot waiver.  There is no in between…it's a FULL commitment!

#2: Both, Ashley and Brooklynn, are pregnant.
Surprise!  Yes, we both ARE pregnant!  The good Lord works in the most AMAZING ways!  Brooklynn and Chad's little girl is due in mid-August and Ashley and Nick's bundle of joy is due in early December.  We are incredibly excited about starting this new journey together.  We just know they will love each other as much as we do!  We've already found them matching shirts…

#3: Both, Ashley and Brooklynn, have only ever taught Kindergarten.
This, too, is true!  Ashley and Brooklynn both interned/student taught in several other grades, but have only had kindergarten classrooms of our own.  We fully believe that kindergarten is the place for us!  

Can you guess which "fact" is the lie???  Leave your guess in the comments.  We'd love for you to play along with us.  You can write your own "Two Truths and A Lie" with your guess and we will try to pick the lie.  

Come back on Friday to find out the lie!

We hope you all have a wonderful week.  Thank you for stopping by!

Again, thank you so much for coming back to read more about us! Thank you to Teach.Talk.Inspire and A Day in K for hosting such a fun linky party.  We can't wait to link up again next week.  If you are interested in linking up- stop by their blogs to find out how!
