Eleven Facts About Me

1. What is your profession? I am an Elementary PE teacher.  I love working with kids and seeing them have fun and run around.  It is challenging but lovely.
2. How would you describe your style? I think I have migrated towards having a classic style that is still on trend.  I used to be really trendy and looking back at pictures I say to myself "What was I thinking??" I don't want to do that to myself anymore, So classic here I come.
3. What one make-up product can you not live without? Well geez, like I said above my style has changed.  I wear sweats everyday so I can't keep up with trends.  I would say that I need either mascara or bronzing powder.  Probably Mascara because I think it gives a finished/polished look. 
4. If you could be besties with one celebrity, who would it be? I love Claire Danes and Leslie Bibb so its a toss up between the two.
5. What is your dream vacation? My dream vacation would be all expenses paid trip to Ireland for 20 days.  Preferably in their "warm" season.
6. What magazines do you subscribe to? The classics, Martha Stewart and Better Homes and Gardens.
7. If you could have a special talent {that you don't currently have}, what would it be? I wish I could be an Olympic level gymnast.  It has always been my dream to just walk down the street and pull out a back handspring series or a back handspring back tuck step out back handspring full twisting layout.
8. What is your favorite breakfast food?  I love poached eggs Benedict without the Canadian bacon.
9. If you could do anything, what is your dream job?   I would love to own a little shop of all my favorite things; A coffee/espresso bar inside a vintage/antique/junk store and a little cafe/restaurant with specials of the day.  Also I would want it to be a little bakery where I could sell my own baked goods, goats milk and eggs.
11. What is the best piece of advice you've ever received, and who gave it to you? Marry your best friend and treat others as you wish to be treated and to be honest and to give of yourself fully.  I learned these from a variety of people.  IDK who told me these things but its what I believe.  I know that I got most of these from my mom.
