1. I'm a freak about washing my face. As in, if I fall asleep on accident I will wake up in the middle of the night to wash it. yep.

2. I'm a cowgirl to the core. There's nowhere I'd rather be than riding a horse on my family's ranch.

3. We decided to get a corgi right after my family's dog Bandit passed away. Bandit was a pembroke Welsh Corgi, like Watson

4. I'm a book fanatic. I'm always reading something.

5. I'm a frequent visitor on Mugglenet.

6. I've read the LOTR series several times (including the Simarillion and the Hobbit). Occasionally I'll go on nerdy rants about my respect for J.R.R. to my husband and/or students. Sometimes the nerdiness--is that a word?-- just can't be contained. 

7. I still cry about my horse Frosty passing away. It's been almost two years. It'll happen probably once a month, I'll have a memory or see a picture and get emotional. I miss my man. 

8. I have a funny habit of laughing really loud during previews at the movies. It's probably really annoying but I can't help myself. 

9. My husband and I still cuddle all night 95% of the time. tmi? I've been told that this is weird? We're just really cuddly people. Plus we like each other.

10. There are certain movies that I can watch over and over again without getting sick of them (I'm talking probably 50 times at least). Most of these are Jane Austen movies.

11. I didn't get into thrift stores until I went to Hobo's with Susan in Redlands, CA our freshmen year of college. I still dream about that place. It's where I caught the bug. Some of my favorite thrifted purchases have been made at that store!

  1. What song is currently stuck in your head? I am a Pirate King -- from Pirates of Penzance. (I'm directing the sixth grade musical this year.)
  2. What is your biggest pet peeve? Mean people.
  3. What got you into blogging? My husband, ironically enough.
  4. What's your most embarrassing moment in high school? slipping and falling on a stray balloon while doing seconds in front of the entire school at a rally-- cheerleader. I know, no judging. 
  5. What is one physical quality you would never change about yourself? My legs. Weird, I know. 
  6. If you had the opportunity to go back in time for 24 hours where would you go? Tough. I think it's a tie between 1813 Southern England or 1923 Paris.
  7. If you had the opportunity of receiving 1 million dollars if you didn't use the internet for 3 years would you take it? Yep.
  8. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? I don't know, maybe perm my hair to have a semi-fro. I'll probably do that at some point in my life anyway.
  9. If your life was a show what would it be called? The Chronicles of a fantasy book-loving, vintage, j.crew wearing cowgirl and her hot hubby Steve.
  10. Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying. By far.
  11. What is your happiest childhood memory This is really hard. Probably going exploring to the waterfalls with my Grandma and sister. Or driving to horse shows with my Dad and Frosty. Or maybe coming home after school and eating hot fudge and bananas on the counter with my mom. It's hard to say, I had a good childhood!
