2. Favorite animal? Cats!  I have two kitty cats that have been with my husband and I since we first married.  They were my “first born” fur babies.

3. Favorite number? 7. My birthday is June 7th and it has always been a good number for me.  Last time I was in Vegas I did pretty well with it on Roulette!

4. Favorite drink? Coke.  It is so bad, yet so good.  I don’t drink much coffee so my trusty Coke gets me going in the morning!

5. Facebook or Twitter? Facebook when I have time.  Which isn’t much. My profile picture is Kinley and Santa.  From last year.  Oops.  Better get on that one!!!

6. Your passion? Teaching and reading.  I love being around people that will let me talk about teaching.  My best friend isn’t a teacher BUT her mother is a retired teacher and her father is a retired teacher turned principal. She gets me.

Reading is a close second.  I love fictional books that take a part of history and turn it into some kind of mystery.  Like the Da Vinci Code.  I know, some people think it is drivel.  I must confess I read about everything EXCEPT British chick lit.  I just can’t do it.  I want sensational, trashy and engaging. Even better if it is ALL in the same book!!

7. Giving or getting presents? Giving.  Although I am a HORRIBLE gift giver.  I am TERRIBLE at keeping secrets (and tell people right up front) so it KILLS me to not tell people what I got for them.  I get so excited I just *have* to tell!  It drives my hubby bonkers!
This is me- with less curls.

8. Favorite day? It’s Friday, Friday. Gotta get down on Friday. Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend.  Uhhem.  I mean..right, Friday.  Every Friday.  It means fun is around the corner.  Now what I did for fun 10 years ago is way different than now.  But a day at the park with my family beats a night at the club any day!

Now I’m passing the award onto these fabulous blogs. Congrats!
