Me: A to Z..Yippie!!!

I have seen this on a few blogs and thought it would be fun to do! A lot of the items are random tidbits about myself, but random things are sometimes the most fun to know about others! Dave and I came up with the categories ourself, that way I could switch it up from what others have posted. What can I say I sometimes just like to go my own way......go my own way...anyone, anyone get the reference?!?! Anyways, I hope you enjoy!!!

Books I really, really like:  This Much I Know Is True, Lovely Bones, A Tree Grows In Brooklyn, (almost) any Laurie Notaro book.
Colleges Attended: Minnesota State University, Mankato (MSU) and George Mason University (GMU)
Dad Memory: every summer my dad would take me on a trip in his Semi to Texas, it was just us and the open road for a week. I loved it, it made me feel special and close to him!
Eye Color: Blue
Favorite Movie: Away We Go, if it is on the TV I HAVE to watch it!! The end, it always gets me, I cry soooo hard. I want to one day live in the farm house where my mom and I grew up, it is filled with so many memories and I would love to fill it with more family memories.
Games I like to play: Scrabble, Drunk Monopoly, and Scategories
Husbands Name: David Andrew Roberts.  I call him 'Babe' or Davi

Inspirations: clouds, love, trees, children, colors, openness, quite, the world
Job: book seller at local family owned bookstore

Originally From: Huntley, Minnesota...small town, probably about 300 people. It has a church, bank, cafe/post office, and lots of farmers!

Patience level: not very high, this is something I need to work on.
Questions I most frequently ask: Why? Does this look cool? What are you doing?
Reality Shows I'm addicted to: Farmer Wants a Wife, The Beauty and The Geek, The Bachelorette,The Amazing Race, Kardashins,...I will watch almost any reality tv show. I love other peoples drama and then am glad I don't have drama in my life.  Maybe I learned this from my mom who used to watch the Jerry Springer Show to make herself feel normal!

X-Rays: only of my collarbone when I was little, I fell off my grandma's bed.  My mom was an X-Ray technician so I grew up around X-Rays and trying to figure out what was wrong with people.
Yard Sales: YES PLEASE!! I love yards sales! We used to have one every summer and for some reason I loved working it all day long.
Zoo animal: elephant, if it's a baby elephant it's even better!

Thanks for reading! I hope you learned something new!
Have a great Tuesday!

FPW: Oct 2nd -9th

Sorry this is a little late today! I worked today and then did not feel well at all, so I had to take Tylenol PM (the only thing we had). No later than 1 hour after taking the pills I was asleep in my bed for 7 hours, but at least I do feel better!! Without further ado, here are some of my favorite pics from the past week!

A surprise carnival on the way to the beach!
