I am stuffed like a turkey..literally :)  I love Thanksgiving.. but I am actually still full :)  As I was preparing for the twenty people for dinner, I checked my e-mail on my phone and was giggly with excitement to see an e-mail from Realistic Teacher nominating me for a Liebster Award!!!!  I was full of smiles....My mother even asked me why I was smiling as I was reading my e-mail :)  LOL

11 Random Things about ME :)

1.  I am 100% sure I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.  When I get my mind set on doing something, there is no stopping me and I dive in ALL THE WAY..there is no half-way with me.  Good thing or bad thing..not really sure :)

2.  I love silence.

3.  It is starting to really bother me how short I am...it never bothered me before...but now it does.

4.  I LOVE Twilight!  The Books...the Movies...the whole shabang..I know..I'm like a kid.

5.  LOVE LOVE LOVE The Housewives of New Jersey...LOL

6.  I am dying to visit Venice...But I wish I could just blink my eyes and and transport there magically so I don't have to fly.

7. Even though I love my job and what I do for my little kiddos every day...I wish I were a Stay-at-Home mom.

8.  I have to eat chocolate every day.

9.  I must wear socks to bed, even when it is extremely hot.  And my feet have to be covered or the monsters under the bed will get them... LOL

10.  I have wanted to be a teacher since I was 5 years old. 

11.  Even though I love teaching, I wish I could take a year off and only work on my photography.

Questions from Realistic Teacher...
1. What is your favorite genre?
Fiction - Mostly Romance novels...I know..corny..but I love them :)
2. Do you parallel park or find another spot?
Parallel...I can do it in my sleep...
3. Do you have any tattoos? How many? Of what?
No tatoos...I absolutely hate needles...I actually cringed when I wrote the word needles
4. What is your favorite book?
Please don't laugh..I LOVED Twilight..I'm like a teeny-bopper in a 40-year old body!  LOL
5. When did you last laugh?
Last night on Thanksgiving. My nephew is the most impatient 18 year old on the planet.  He refuses to be patient while we cut the turkey, so he pulled off a piece.  He said it was hanging off, so I wouldn't get upset.  He was actually eating the turkey's butt! I don't think he will do that anymore!! LOL
6. Where have you traveled and what was your favorite place?
I absolutely LOVED Turks and Caicos!
7. Do you like to dance?
Yes...but I am usually too tired
8. What is your favorite type of music?
You will never believe this..but I never listen to music!  I think that is because I never have silence in my life..23 second graders...my 11 year old twin boys...my hubby...There is never any silence in my life. So I never listen to the radio.  If I have a long drive in the car alone, the radio is off the whole time....Weird..I know.
9. Have you ever, or would you ever, go skydiving or bungee jumping?
Absolutely NEVER!  I am deathly afraid of heights.  I have to be medicated just to fly on an airplane
10. Do you garden?
Nope...My husband is the one with the green thumb.  My house looks like the Botanical Gardens. Yesterday I was preparing for 20 people for dinner and he was planting tulips FOR NEXT YEAR!!
11. If you could eat lunch with a favorite person who would it be?
I would have to say my mom or my best friend Tree :)  Love them both to death!
