1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed?
I've been blogging for 4 months! My blog has kind of changed from just my little personal journey, to a full-blown teachers blog, with my journey in it!
2. Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?
Yeppers! I went to Oral Roberts University and studied Elementary Education with a concentration in Teaching ELLs. {sidenote 1: it feels so weird to say "went" because I just graduated!} {sidenote 2: it feels so good not to have to explain ELLs!}
first year- at the entrance!
at our graduation with some ed. friends!!
3. Where have you traveled?
I have traveled all over the U.S. on family vacations- from NYC to Texas, from Wisconsin to Hawaii. But my favorite places have been outside the US! 
Bogota, Colombia- it was here where I first discovered that I
wanted to teach in South America and travel around the world!
Togo, West Africa! I went here last summer with a missions
team of 8 for 4 weeks! I LOVE AFRICA
4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
A car with a personal driver! I know, random. But it's a long story!
5. What are your 3 biggest pet peeves?
1. being late for something
2. gossip
3. people in the kitchen who aren't supposed to be when I'm trying to cook!
6. What is your favorite movie?
Ooh, toughy! I'd have to say Pride and Prejudice! I love romantic comedies!
7. What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea?
I love iced tea (especially McAlisters Sweet Tea!) and water!
8. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time?
blogging, crafting, catching up on my TV shows
9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?
Eeek! this is hard! It's a toss up between Target and Hobby Lobby!
10. Share with us an embarrassing moment of your past? Or present.
so, we were on our way home from Togo last summer, on the airplane across the atlantic ocean. in togo, they speak french, along with the indigenous languages. so I had gotten used to saying "merci" since it means "thank you" in french. every day for a month, I would say it all the time! Well, as we are nearing NYC, they pass out the citizenship papers (or whatever they are called). The rest of the team got theirs in English, but mine were in French! The reason? Whenever the stewardess would give me something, I would say merci instead of thank you! LOL! So she thought I spoke French!11. What day would you love to relive again?
Any day in Togo or Colombia!12. If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you?
Zooey Deschanel- I LOVE her in New Girl- since she's a teacher/hipster!
13. What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?
My first job was my fave. I worked as a receptionist for my dad's Medical spa. I also worked at a grocery store, for a non-profit called Campfire USA, and for a couple areas at my university.14. Show us a picture from high school or college.

Oh wow! I want to go all over the world! But I've always wanted to go to Paris!

this past year I was a chaplain (spiritual leader) on a dorm wing,
and this is a picture of  the group of amazing ladies who also were

head chaplain (in the middle on the bottom row), because she
got married the day after graduation!
