I decided to answer a few questions from each of my nominators. So here we go:

1. What is your favorite sweet treat?
I would have to go with ice cream. I love all the varieties you can get....whether in a fruity mood or chocolate, it totally satisfies!

2. Do you have sibling?
Yep! I'm the middle of five. One brother, the oldest, and the rest sisters.

3. What's the best thing about being a teacher?
I love watching each child grow throughout the year and seeing them succeed at hard things.

4. Name two of your favorite school supplies and why.
Glue stick is probably my number one. It gets things messy which means fun! Possibilities are endless! I would also have to say scissors for the same reason....AND fine motor is always a plus!

5. How many states and countries have you visited?
Countries: Mexico, Canada, Jamaica, Cayman Islands and, of course, USA!
States: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Utah, Washington & Wyoming. (16 down...34 to go!)

6. Do you prefer a quiet, beach vacation, or an adventure-filled time?
Definitely have to go with adventure. Although, I wouldn't turn down a beach vacation!

7. If you could have any super power what would it be and why?
I could travel anywhere with the snap of my fingers....it would be so nice! Wake up, get ready, snap fingers....I'm at work! Or, snap fingers and I'm in Hawaii or Australia! You can't deny it, that would be AMAZING.

8. What is your favorite book?
I'll have to go with the Hunger Game series....anyone else excited for November!?

9. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Africa. I want to volunteer at an orphanage, help get clean water & go on a SAFARI!

10. If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, alive or dead, real or fictional, who would it be and why?
Hmmmm.....this is a hard one. I would have to say my wonderful Grandma who passed away 7 years ago so I could hear her voice again, hug her & have my husband meet her. 

11. If you could have anything for dinner, what would it be?
Cafe Rio pork salad sounds SO good right now
