Tag, You're it!

Eeek I got tagged and I didn't even know I was in the gym playing the game.  I really like to play rock, paper, scissors tag but Erika at The Honey Bunch got me. Here are the questions she asked me.
1.  If you could be any animal what would you be and why?

I honestly think that I would be a dog.  I am very faithful to those that I love and eating and napping are my two favorite hobbies. 

2.  What is your favorite drink?

Wine! Wine, and a little more wine. 

3.  What is the best book you've ever read and why?

Sooo many great books, but probably some that are in my top 5 are:
  1.  Still Alice - it is about a lady that suffers from early onset Alzheimers.  It gave me a lot more understanding of this condition. 
  2. Ape House - such a great book about apes that have been trained to understand American Sign Language. 
  3. The Art of Racing in the Rain - this book made me cry because it reminded me a lot of my dog Ola.  It is a must read for any dog lovers. 
  4. Water for Elephants - need I say anymore... LOVE.
  5. Left Neglect - same author as Still Alice.  The main character is injured in a car accident and suffers from left neglect (she cant see or use the left side of her body). 
4.  What are your top 5 teacher blogs?

This is a really hard one because I love sooooo many blogs and I cant really narrow it down to 5... but because you are making me..
  1. Misty at Think, Wonder, & Teach
  2. Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade
  3. Kristin at A Teeny Tiny Teacher
  4. Kim at Finding JOY in 6th Grade
  5. Reagan Tunstall at Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits
5.  What is your favorite non-teaching blog?

I really like Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara.  She has some funny stories, and interesting quilting projects.  

6.  What is the name of your favorite font?

Right now it is sweetie pie! It is so darling.
7.  Do you wear a watch or not?  If so which wrist?

I wear a nixon watch that my mom got my for my birthday.  I can't live without a watch when I teach.  It goes on my left wrist.  

8.  Gold or silver?

It is silver with a coral face and a little diamond.
9.  What is your favorite TV show to watch?

Vampire diaries and Greys Anatomy.
10.  Dog, cat or other?

All of the above.  I love my doggies, horses and kitty's!
