So the rules are as follows:
1. Thank the person (or people) that gave the award to me and link back to them
2. List 7 things about me
3.Pass this award to other bloggers

I spent all weekend thinking of some things to share with you all. Here goes:

1.I have a very unnatural obsession with all things zebra print at the moment. 

{Source} Btw.. how CUTE is this luggage! WANT IT!
Anyways, I want anything and everything zebra print lately which led to the following discussion at Hobby Lobby between me and Derrick.
Me: Look!! A zebra print filer.. Look! A zebra print storage box!! Look!! A zebra print blah blah blah.
Derrick: What is your deal with zebra print? You don't need any of that.
Me: Yes I do. 1. It's ZEBRA PRINT. 2. I can file my photography files in the filer and my photos in the photo storage box. 3. It's 50% OFF!
Derrick: You don't store photos, you put them in an album.
Me: But, it's 50% off.. but fine, I bet I can find a zebra print photo album. *Goes looking*
This resulted in Derrik rolling his eyes at me and telling me that just because something is 50% off doesn't mean I need to buy it. This also resulted in me walking out with my 50% off zebra print filer.. SCORE!

2. I loved and still do love any and all (pretty much) of the WB, CW, UPN tween shoes.

This includes and is not limited to: Dawson's Creek, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, America's Next Top Model, Gilmore Girls.

3. I was in the drill team my senior year of high school.

I really wish I had a picture of myself on the drill team on my computer, but I don't. But yeah.. as much as I love to dance, making the drill team really surprised me since I have no natural rhythm. I practiced my heart out to make that team and I completely rocked try outs. I enjoyed being on the team and still remember some of the dances and it's been 8 years.

4. I wish, more than anything, that I could have gotten to know my mom.

She died when I was only 2 and in a lot of ways I feel like I was cheated out of a lot. She won't be there for my wedding day (well, physically at least) and I never really got to have any of those mother-daughter chats growing up. As much as I want to have children someday, it also terrifies me because what if I die young like my mom did and leave my children behind. It's an everyday struggle to not have her here and that's the last thing I want to do to my children (not that she had a choice, it was a heart problem that led to her death). But still, the thought terrifies me.

5. I seriously have one of the most awesome best friends. We've been friends since kindergarten (with the exception of a few times where we weren't friends, but I think we just needed to grow on our own and it made our friendship stronger) and we've been on some awesome adventures together. 
{She's going to kill me for adding this picture!}

No matter where we go, we always manage to have fun and make great memories. Like the time we raced a train or traveled all the way to Nashville in horrible weather just to try out for the Biggest Loser. lol. We have so many inside jokes and memories together and while we haven't been on one of our awesome adventures lately.. we are planning on going to Atlantic City, NJ for my bachelorette getaway (FIST PUMP MANIA) in September and who know what shenanigans we will get into there.

6. I played the trumpet in band from 5th grade all the way until I graduated. (Hello band geek! LOL)

The reason I started playing it in the first place was because my mom played the trumpet when she was in school and it was something I felt tied me to her. I may have never gotten to know her, but I somehow felt connected to her when I played the trumpet.

7. I love love love playing Board Games.. my favorite being DVD Scene It (which no one will play with me because I always win!) But Monopoly makes me more mad than any other game.

First off, this game lasts WAY too long.. secondly, it makes me mad. I have literally gotten so mad at this game that I knocked the board off the table and walked away. Yes, I'm that intense when it comes to board games.

Pass It Along- I tag:
