10 Things You Never Knew You Wanted to Know...

Mrs. Owens is hosting this fun linky party where you can learn 10 Things About Me! :)

So... here they are!

10.) I spent a few days on an uninhabited island with some teacher friends and a beautiful lighthouse last summer... it was not my cup of tea! My mom drove for six hours to rescue me from the "vacation" three days early!

9.) I love love to read. I read lots of things, but my secret favorite is teen fiction! Supernatural-esque stories with a smattering of romance... and NOTHING beats the "City of..." books by Cassandra Clare for a good time! Oh yeah... that's Jace the cover. I love that Shadowhunter!

8.) I have lost 55.9 lbs so far this year! This is something I'm super proud of, but haven't shouted from the rooftops yet!

7.) I am in love with the fictional character Gilbert Blythe. If you've ever seen or read Anne of Green Gables you'll know exactly what I'm talking about!
6.) I love shoes. And purses. Once my husband accused me of having 5 purses. I'm so glad that's all he thinks I have!

5.) My husband and I are heading to New York City next weekend! We'll be gone for a week and I can't wait to hit the big city, eat some tasty food, and see some shows! We have tickets to "Memphis" and "Rent"!

4.) My BFF and I aren't just BFFs... we are BFFAFALTATs (Best Friends Forever And For A Long Time After That)!

3.) I love Christmas and have a huge collection of ceramic houses for a Rudolph Christmas village. My husband says it looks like "Santa pukes" on our house at Christmas. Highest compliment ever!

2.) I am terrified of mice. Everything about them creeps me out. Their squeaky noises and long tails and buggy eyes and scurrying feet... EEEK!

1.) I am obsessed with musicals in a bad way. I love them more than anything! Fortunately, my husband supports my habit. I have seen Fiddler on the Roof, Wicked (x3), Legally Blonde, The Color Purple, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Grease, Chicago, Hairspray, Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Spam-a-Lot (x2), The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, A Christmas Carol, West Side Story, The Producers, Beauty and the Beast, and my favorite, favorite of all time (which I will be seeing for the 5th time next week in NYC! I saw it in Chicago two years ago when Anthony Rapp and Adam Pascal reprised their roles as the two original lead cast members!) is...

So, that's me in a nutshell! Head on over to Mrs. Owen's at Go Fourth! to add yourself to the fun linky party!


  1. CONGRATS on the weight jealous! I love your website BTW! I'm glad you are blogging now! Stop by my blog, follow me & find out about my 200 follower giveaway :o)
    Peace, Mel D
    Oh the Places We’ll Go

  2. I am 12 kinds of jealous that you will be seeing the new RENT!!!!! I thought I was the official crazed fan, but you may have beat me. My kids are really tired of me singing Seasons of Love for everything. My best friend's son played Mark in a community theater production last year and I was there more than once (crazy, crazy). If you haven't read Anthony Rapp's book, "Without You", you must read it this summer.

    Faithful in First

  3. I'm so glad to find another RENT fanatic! I love love love it SOOOOOOO much! It was amazing when I got to see Anthony Rapp and Adam Pascal in Chicago two years ago! I LOVE IT! :) I'll think of you while I'm there!

    I have Anthony Rapp's book, but haven't read it yet. My husband gave it to me for Christmas the year he bought me the RENT tickets to see him in Chicago and said "It came with some bookmark. I put the bookmark inside for you". And the "bookmark" was the 9th row tickets! :)

  4. Great to learn about you! Congrats on your weight loss - I am trying but itis going slowly! Loved "Lion King" and Mamma Mia - thaose are the last musical I've seen. I love reading as well!

  5. I just noticed you have read the "City of..." Mortal Instruments series! I am on book 2 and it is SOOOOOO good! Like no one has heard of it, so I'm often explaining the series, and I end up telling people it is a combination of Harry Potter and Twilight. SOOOO good:-D

    We are ALL Special!
