Thank you to Caitlin over at Your Favorite Girlfriend for nominating me.

Turn off my alarm clock and go to the washroom? Ha! Just keepin' it real here...

2. What is the 3rd picture on your phone? Share it!
So my phone currently is on it's last legs and it keeps shutting down on me today so that's no fun.

Here is a picture from the website.

Dancing with the Stars. Can I just say that I am so excited to see Bill Nye the Science Guy dance? Hilarious.

No pets but my dad has a cat named Morris who is amazing. I've mentioned him before. I'm not much of an animal person but this cat has won me it's heart. He weighs about 15 lbs.

Long sleeve top, skinny jeans, brown riding boots and a scarf. I like it keep things simple.

  2. CONGRATULATIONS on the award!

    I may have to tune into this season's DWTS. It's been awhile since I've watched, but you're right, Bill Nye is hard to resist!

    I love Coke... I'm really quite dependent. I must have one every day or I get a headache!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  3. Congrats on the award and THANK YOU for nominating me! I'm so excited! I can't wait to post about this next week :)
    I wish I could get excited about DWTS.. I tried, but couldn't. I do know who the "cast" is this season and it does sound pretty interesting-- Bill Nye, the Science Guy.. dancing.. Hmmm! LOL

  4. I loved reading your answers! And I had no idea that Bill Nye was going to be on Dancing with the Stars - the former science teacher in me may need to watch it now!

  5. OMG no coffee? I wish I knew how to survive without it! And I love your "adopted" kitty - mine is that big too and that makes them so much more huggable!

  6. I haven't watched Dancing with the Stars the last few seasons but I think Bill Nye will bring me back to that show. I loooved watching Bill Nye the science guy in school!

    Also, your Dad's cat Morris is freakin' ADORABLE!

  7. Thanks for nominating me! I finally got around to answering your questions:
