11 questions for me! 

1) What is your biggest dream?
I love being a teacher, but I'd love the opportunity to get to be a stay-at-home mom, then get to work at boutique just for fun once the kids were in school.

2) Where would you go on your dream vacation?
I love Maui, and had the best time there getting married and enjoying our honeymoon.  I'd go back there to vacation in a heart beat.

3) What is the most important thing to you?
I'd have to say my faith and my family.

4) Chocolate, Vanilla, or Strawberry?
Ice cream: vanilla Candy: chocolate any day

5) What's your favorite accessory?
I love necklaces, so fun.

6) If you could go back in time what time period would you go to?
I'd go back to the 1960s.  It was such an influential time period for our country; I'd like to go back and be a part of it.

7) What's your favorite time of the year?
I love summer, specifically because I get to wear sundresses and flip flops every day.

8) What's your favorite movie?
Napoleon Dynamite.  So funny, and cracks me up every time.

I would love to have a bigger clothes budget....hey, a girl can dream. ;)

11) Can you speak more than one language?
No, I can't.  I really wish I could though.  I have a large population of Hispanic students, and I think it is such an asset to be bi-lingual.  It would also be great to be able to communicate more easily with the parents.
