11 Questions

I was tagged by Claws Up and I Bleed Polish for the 11 Questions tag. I think these are really fun, so thanks you two! =)

11 Things About Me
1.  I’m addicted to McDonald’s mocha frappes.  Someone needs to come up with a secret formula to take all of the calories OUT of those delicious little devils.
2. I went to college at the University of South Dakota—and graduated in 1995, which feels like 100 years ago now!
3. I broke my arms/wrists 9x when I was a kid. >.< Can you say KLUTZ? Seriously, I fell off anything, from swings to roller skates, you name it! I even managed to fall off of a foot stool (in 1st grade, of course). Lol
4. I have 2 leopard geckos~ Romeo & Juliet.
5. I have wanted to be an art teacher ever since I was in 4th grade.
6. I sleep with a fan on—my college roommate got me started on this and ever since, I can’t even begin to think about falling asleep without some sort of fan noise on.
7. I LOVE sleeping in in the morning and staying up late at night.
8. My newest passion is blogging!! I am having so much FUN with all of you! I had no idea what an amazing nail polish world there was out here just waiting for me to find and explore!!!
9. My kids and I have been watching all of the Friday Night Lights episodes on Netflix, starting at the beginning.  We never watched it when it was actually ON television and we are really enjoying the quality family time!
10. I am obsessed with Lacquistry Nail Polish (created by Jenna Herder). I love ALL of her amazing lacquers and I think she just has mad skills when it comes to creating top notch nail polishes
11. I could eat pizza every day if my family wouldn’t mind…I’d even order from different pizza joints if it would make it easier on them! :P
