Blogger 411

Becky over at fromMrstoMama hosted a fun link up the other day. I am a few days behind but it is still open and I hope to find some new blogs to read from it! 
1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed?
I have been blogging over at Moments Like This for a little over a year. I was watching the news one night and saw a story about a family that was due to have quadruplets any day. They kept talking about how the soon to be mom had been giving updates about her pregnancy on her blog. I checked it out one night and it took off from there. I read blogs for a few months before starting my own. My blog hasn't really changed much. I try to post a few times a week and hope to get better at posting more often. 

2. Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?
I did! I attended Texas A&M (whoop!) for my undergrad and Concordia University for my masters. I absolutely loved my time in College Station and my husband and I go back for every home football game!

3. Where have you traveled?
I have traveled to different parts of Mexico on a cruise and to Antigua for our honeymoon. I have also been to around 20 states for different vacations. 

4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
Hmm, I can think of a lot of things I would like to buy for our new house but I would probably foot the bill of the trip my family is taking to Hawaii over spring break. Our family has been through a lot in the past month and I would like nothing more than to help out with that!

5. What are your 3 biggest pet peeves?
- Slow drivers in the fast lane!
- People wasting my time!
- Dishes being left in the sink with food still on them! (really, don't even bother putting them in the sink)

6. What is your favorite movie?
I really am not a huge movie person. I can't really think of one favorite movie but more of a kind of movie I like. I could sit and watch Disney movies all night! Shrek, Toy Story, The Incredibles, etc. 

7. What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea?
My day does not start until I have had a Coke Zero! I rarely drink water but am trying to fix that. As far as alcohol, I like vodka, Riesling, or Ace Pear. 

8. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time?
Take a bubble bath while blogging or reading a good book!

9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be?
At this time in my life, probably Bassett furniture. My husband and I just built our first home and I want nothing more but to fill it with beautiful furniture. I have our bedroom, dining room, and living room tables picked out and will slowly purchase them all! A close second is Target. I am slightly obsessed with the store and you can get anything and everything you could ever really need! 

10. Share with us an embarrassing moment of your past? Or present.
Well, I embarress myself on pretty much a daily basis so I have plenty to pick from. I will go with the most recent which happened at one of my best friends weddings this past weekend. A little back story, I introduced the two of them and am very very proud of it! During their ceremony the preacher was talking about them as young children. He says to raise your hand if you have known the couple since the beginning. I am one to quickly assume I know exactly what everyone is talking about so I shoot my hand up in the air, wave it around like I just don't care (sorry, couldn't help myself) and then realize that he is talking about who has known them both since birth... Oops! I am sure more people than I wish noticed my mistake but I was humiliated!! 

11. What day would you love to relive again?
Hands down, our wedding day! It was by far the best day of my (our) lives so far! I wish that I had slowed down a little bit and soaked everything in a little bit more. 

12. If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you?
No clue!

13. What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years?
I started working as soon as I possibly could! I loved the responsibility it made me feel. My first job was as a secretary at my mom's office. Second was a hostess at Texas Roadhouse. I was also a lifeguard for 3 summers during high school. When I went of to college, I worked at American Eagle and the on-campus daycare at A&M. Since graduating from college, I have had my dream job of teaching.

14. Show us a picture from high school or college.
This is a picture of my husband and I getting ready for prom our senior year of high school. 
This is me getting my Aggie Ring junior year of college. 

15. If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go?
I'm sure this is a very popular answer, but I would love to go to Bora Bora!

16. Show us the most current picture of you or you, or your family, or anything of meaning to you. 
This picture was taken at the wedding I was talking about earlier that was this past weekend. It is my new favorite picture of us and I wish the quality was a little better, it was taken with an iPhone. 

17. Where do you see your life 5 years from now?
Happily married, in the same house, an assistant principal, with a baby!!
