Here are the questions Jen posted for me! Go visit Jen's blog!!!!! :)

1. What is your most prized possession?
Photographs. I love documenting EVERY. MOMENT. and looking back at them and reminiscing! 

2. If you could do anything today what would it be?
Jump on a plane to vacation NOW instead of wait until Friday!

3. What is your favorite dish to make?
Chicken Marsala with EXTRA Mushrooms! It's my signature dish! :)

4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was in elementary school, we had to draw what we wanted to be when we grew up and it was published in the yearbook. What did I put? A MILLIONAIRE. It was a picture of myself (very classy stick figure) surrounded by dollar bills. BUT, once I realized that I actually needed a PROFESSION, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. My parents laugh because (other than that lapse in judgement in elementary school), I've never wanted to do anything other than what I'm doing (definitely not a millionaire). 

5. What is your favorite holiday?
Christmas! It's the only holiday that me and V can make it home to Indiana. Family is VERY important to us and it's one of the only holidays that we can spend with our families. Plus, V's dad & stepmom go ALL out and spoil us rotten!!
Look at all those gifts!!!!!
6. Morning person or night owl?
Night owl.... I have such crazy sleep habits!!

7. What is your favorite movie?
Ever? The Mighty Ducks 2.... Yes, you read that correctly. I can repeat every word from that movie. 

8. What is something we don't know about you?
As much as I love teaching, my dream job would be a psychologist working with serial killers on death row or a psychologist working with the mentally ill. I am OBSESSED with serial killers (in a non creepy way). I pretty much know all there is to know about the most 'famous' serial killers. When I backpacked through Italy, one of our stops was Florence. Instead of seeing the famous David statue, I, instead went to a serial killer museum across the street. 

9. If you could have any car you wanted, what would it be?
My dream car as a child/teenager was a Yellow Jeep Wrangler (I had such high standards, huh). Now, I would LOVE a Lexus SUV!

10. What is your perfect date night?
Staying in, cooking a nice dinner together and cuddling up on the couch with a movie! 

11. What is something you'd like to accomplish in the future.
I would love to go back to school for my Masters!
