My Turn.

So Alivia tagged me...

1. What is your favorite part of the day?
Well that depends greatly on what day it is.  If it's a weekday, perhaps 3:00pm, when all students are safely tucked on the bus and I have a brilliant half an hour to figure out what the heck just happened today.
If it's a Saturday, definitely the moment I wake up and realize the alarm didn't go off because I didn't set it because it doesn't matter what time I get up~and then I smell the bacon...because my husband is phenomenal and my life is awesome.

2. Do you have a guilty pleasure band or artist?
I think I may always love Duran Duran from the bottom of my heart...and I love cooking to Celine Dion classics...(and singing into my spatula).  I'm pretty sure that counts.

3. What is your favorite thing about where you live?
In 5 minutes, I can be surrounded by manure-saturated farm fields.  In half an hour, I can be climbing a mountain.  Also, in 45 minutes, I can be in the heart of Philadelphia.  Also, in an hour and 45 minutes, I can be on the beach.  Love that I'm so close to all my favorite things.

4  What is your biggest pet peeve?
Socks with sandals.  Leaving like 7 seconds on the microwave without clearing it for the next person.  People who steal stuff out of our front yard while we're at work.  Not sure I could choose between the three.
5. Do you have a favorite celebrity? A least favorite?
Umm...Michael Kors?  Currently I'm dying over Sue Heck from the Middle.  She just kills me.  Not sure if this really counts as a celebrity?  I also love that Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman, now has her own tv show on the food network.  Again, I'm not really into celebrities.

6.  If you could travel to any place from a story, book, movie, etc. where would you go and why?
 My first thought was Narnia, but then I realize that for most of the story it's winter there, and I HATE BEING COLD.  So no, not Narnia.  My second thought is that I want to be in the fun little fantasy world where the kitty lives in The Shy Little Kitten golden book.  It was my favorite book when I was little and I drove my dad crazy asking him to read it to me repeatedly every night.  He hated it because the kitten is rebellious and wanders off when her father tells her not to.  And it's kinda boring.  Ha!

7. What are 5 things you like about yourself?
I like that I'm learning to be more adventurous and my cooking, my personal style, and my relationships.
I like that I can sit down at the piano and "wing" a new piece of music.
I like that I'm becoming more open with my friends and family and getting past myself.
I like that I'm able to be patient with my students and help them value themselves for who they are.
I like that my hair is getting longer and I've so far resisted the urge to chop it off.

8. If you could acquire one skill instantly, which would it be?
The skill of gardening, and all the little skills that come along with it.  Fingers crossed that my plants last longer than a few weeks this year!

9. What song would you choose if you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life?
This kinda changes on a daily basis, but today, I'd say this new gem from the Civil Wars...have you seen this yet?  wow.


10. When do you feel most safe?
Cuddled up in bed with my hubby and my kitty-cat.  Sigh.

11. How would describe yourself in only five words?
Tomorrow I'll stop by with some questions of my own, the rules, and some tags for the fearless bloggers who are next! muahaha!!
