There are some rules that go along with this honor. I am now required to:
1.) Honestly divulge 10 things about myself (this could be scary)
1. I am a hopeless "Fanilow" - yes, that's right, I LOVE Barry Manilow! I told you this could be a little scary. I hope you can still respect me now. :)
2. I am absolutely phobic about dentists. I usually hyperventilate at least once and I cry the whole time. Really. No joke. Remember, I'm required to be honest.
3. I am a complete and total freak about baseball! (some of you may already know this)
4. I played both trumpet and French horn in high school.
5. If I could change one thing about myself, I would wish to be a morning person. Morning is so hard for me!
6. I love shopping online, vanilla lattes, and chocolate with nuts!
7. I was 40 years old before I got my first cell phone. Ugh! Did I say that out loud?
8. My dream agent would be Emily van Beek of Pippin Properties! (Hey! A girl's gotta have a goal) :)
9. My favorite picture book author is Patricia Polacco. Ooooh, I love her! :)
10. I'm a high school English teacher and I totally LOVE my job! :)
Okay, if you're still with me and haven't run away screaming yet, here's the fun part! I am going to pass on the love to... may I have a drumroll please?
