I'm a mom concerned with my kid's happiness rather than a spotless house, a wife aspiring to be a domestic goddess, an in home childcare provider studying to be a 2nd grade elementary teacher, a jean and t-shirt wearing diva wishing I was a fashionista, but all in all, I'm happy.

I eat my Starbursts in this order, pink, orange, yellow, red.
I have a neck tattoo that I am not ashamed of.
I often think about the Zombie Apocalypse.
I googled the Liebster Blog and could not find the beginning source.
I'm up WAY too late tonight.
I believe I am going to hit a midlife crisis when I turn 30 next year.
I play have been playing The SIMS since it first came out.
I LOVE the smell of Irish Spring.
Ever since I started watching Hoarders, I have been afraid of becoming a hoarder, so now I basically only keep the necessities and have gotten rid of a ton of crap in my house. Lol.
I dislike the show Private Practice, but continue to watch because I think I will miss something when they connect with Grey's Anatomy.
Ever since I started making teacher lesson plans, I am debating whether I like 1st or 2nd grade better and am unsure on which grade I want to teach when I am finally in a formal setting.
1. What or who inspired you to become a teacher?
I couldn't even tell you. I can remember for as long as I can that I wanted to be a teacher. I kind of "hate" my high school counselor for steering me in the completely wrong direction. I'm a career changing teacher, and even though it is a late start, I'm still young and after my little ones are in pre-k, I can't wait to have my first "real" classroom. But for now, my home classroom is working great.
2. If you couldn't be a teacher what would you do for a living?
Does this imply that I won the lottery and did not have to work? Because if that is the case, I would travel my heart away. But if that is not the case, then I would definitely be doing something small business like. It's sort of my other thing.
3. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Buying the new Christmas ornament. It's a tradition I started with my little family. I'll blog about it when we buy our new one this weekend.
4. Did you always want to be a teacher? If not, what else did you have in mind?
Yes, but like I said earlier, I was deterred by my high school counselor to go to film school. Yes, I have talent in that department, made some great projects in my day, but apparently it wasn't for me after all. I also dreamed of being a dancer, you know, in music videos. Until I learned most of those girls are pretty raunchy, and that is really not for me. Although I still would like to do a hip hop dance in a video, just one, so I can retire that dream out.
5. What is your favorite season? Why?
Summer, because growing up in Wisconsin it never lasted long enough, and I can not stand the cold.
6. Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what is it?
I guess you could say dancing. I don't do it as often as I should anymore. Ballet, tap, jazz, and hip hop.
7. Has any particular book influence you or left a life-changing impact on you? Which one?
The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman, really saved, improved, and continues to guide my marriage with my husband.
8. What is your favorite T.V. show?
Ooooohhh, this is a hard one. Grey's Anatomy, no.....The Walking Dead.....Full House......Fresh Prince.....Ninja Warrior....too many to choose from.
9. Do you know the meaning of your name? If so, what is it?
Nerissa, Queen of the sea, or sea nymph. Explains why fish are my favorite animals.
10. What is your biggest pet peeve?
People that chomp loudly on their food. And can you believe I'm married to one of them. : /
11. What is it about a blog that makes you stop to read or follow it?
One that actually has stuff written in it and not a ton of ads all the way down the sides of the blog or in the header. If I came to read your blog, I would like to just read that. Also one that doesn't have too many pages. To me, you have too many things you are writing about, just get a website already.
