7 Things About Me
  1. I have been a SAHM for 11 years now (where has the time gone??)
  2. I love animals. LOVE them! 
  3. I am an admitted Star Trek and Stargate fan. I'm not ashamed to admit that I watch both those franchises every single day.
  4. I love to read, especially fantasy or romance
  5. I run a home daycare, although right now I only have one little fellow that I watch.
  6. I can't start my day without at least one cup of coffee.
  7. I am teaching myself how to quilt.

  1. Name your favorite color. Definitely pink. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love pink!!
  2. Name your favorite song. Oh, I just don't know! I don't really have one favourite. I love country music, but my fave changes with the countdown. LOL! Although, oddly enough, I do love the song Time of Your Life by  Green Day. I can't post the video here, but if you've never heard it, it's a beautiful song that has always spoken to me for some reason. 
  3. Name your favorite dessert. Hmmm..I'm not a big dessert eater. I do like chocolate cake, though, so I guess if I have to choose one, that would be it. 
  4. What wizzes you off? Meanspirited people. The type of person who needs to bring people down by insulting their appearance especially. 
  5. When you're upset you _________? Sit and brood for a while. I'm normally a very positive person, but like anyone else, I have my days. :)
  6. Your favorite pet I love all my pets, but I have to admit that my chihuahua Sammy is my baby. He's such a sweet little guy. He has the best personality, and everyone loves him, just not as much as me. 
  7. Black or white? I guess white? 
  8. Your biggest fear? spiders! I can't stand the creepy crawly little things. Ugh!!!
  9. Best feature? I don't put any stock in physical features, but I've been told I have nice eyes. Your physical features are what you have, and there's not much you can do about them. It's what's inside, the way you conduct yourself that really matters. 
  10. Everyday attitude? Generally positive, although, like I said earlier, everyone has those days.
  11. What is perfection? There is no such thing in people. Physical appearance is too far overrated and no one will ever have a perfect attitude.
  12. Guilty pleasure? Reality shows, especially Survivor and Big Brother. I can't stay away from them!
And now the really fun part
