My Favorite Quotes:

A person's a PERSON no matter how small... -Dr. Seuss

I am a little pencil in the hand of God who is sending a love letter to the world. - Mother Teresa

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to THINK, than WHAT to think- rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men. - James Beattie

Beautiful Blogger Award--- awwww... shucks!! :)

I just received this sweet award from Confessions of  a Fitness Instructor. and let me tell you- Suzi is one healthy, fit, and beautiful blogger! :)    I really appreciate you thinking of me, Suzi!!  :)  Thank you. are the rules to receive the Beautiful Blogger award:
  • Thank & link to the person that gave you the award --- Check!  Thanks again Suzi!
  • Pass this award onto 15 bloggers you’ve discovered & think are fantastic.
  • Contact said Blogs & let them know they've won (wouldn’t it be awful if you didn’t do this? Gosh!)
  • State 7 things about yourself.
Okay- 7 things about myself...
1.  I am the oldest of 8 children and so yes... I am bossy!! And NO- it doesn't mean I'm going to have 8 kids- so stop asking! LOL
2.  I love to plan things: parties, lesson plans, vacations- that's my thing!
3.  I feel like a Texan since I've been here so long... but I'm actually a Hoosier at heart :)
4.  I would LOVE to write a bestseller Children's book... I just haven't had enough quiet/alone time to do it with little ones at my heels all day.
5.  I LOVE to act, sing, and I adore musical theatre... and until kids I was in a few shows around town- I am trying to get back into it but haven't found enough time yet.
6.  I love holidays- I love to decorate my house for the holidays (and sometimes it can be quite cheesy!)
7.  I would really LOVE to move away from the city- out of the "rat race", cleaner air, less rush, ... sounds good to me!
