Here are the answers to the questions from the blogger who nominated me:
1. Who was your favorite teacher? Why? This is a tough one for me because I have had so many great teachers in my life. I loved my fifth grade teacher because I thought she was so cool. I would actually write down things she did in her classroom so I would remember them when I became a teacher. I also loved my freshman English teacher. I hated her at first, but she really challenged me to become a better writer.
2. What is your favorite kind of movie to see in the theater? I like to see comedies. I find the laughter of all those people so uplifting.
3. What dish do you cook that everyone just loves? Everyone who eats my pepperoni bread loves it and I recently made these meatballs and they are always a hit.
4. What is your ideal "night in?" I am perfectly content ordering pizza and watching a movie or a TV show from Netflix with Hubs.
5. How would you describe your home decor style? Right now, I feel like it's a hodgepodge of stuff. We have the new part of our house that we renovated and the old part of our house that we haven't done anything to and they don't exactly mesh. I like my house to feel warm and welcoming.
6. What do you do for a living? Do you like it? I am a first grade teacher and most days I love my job.
7. Describe your everyday handbag. Is it huge and filled with tons of stuff or small and neat? My current bag is a Kate Spade one I bought on super sale as a "You're doing a good job growing a baby" present to myself. It is not huge, but definitely has a lot of stuff in it.
8. Mac or PC? Never thought I'd say this, but I am officially a Mac convert.
9. What is your favorite season? Why? Summer...uh no school then!
10. Do you have a special talent? Is there something unusual that you know how to do? I literally consider myself talentless. I can't sing, dance, or sew. I am pretty damn good with a glue gun though!
11. What is your favorite way to waste time on the internet? Facebook, The Bump, Pinterest, blogs...I am a great time waster.
