So there are my not so fun fact about me... now to answer DeAnne's questions!
1) What is your favorite recipe? (Would you like to share?)--oops that's 2 questions.
My best friend just taught me this recipe yesterday... it is sooo yummy.
Pollo en Salsa (Chicken in Sauce)
Fry some chicken (I used chicken breasts and thighs) in a pot.
Blend the following items together: 3 medium tomatoes, 2 jalapeno peppers, 1 clove of garlic, some pepper, 1 teaspoon of chicken bouillon, 1 cup of water, and a quarter of a small onion.
Once the chicken is slightly fried in the pot, pour the tomato sauce in the pot and bring to a boil on high. Once it is boiling, add a bay leaf to the pot. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is completely cooked. 
Serve with your favorite sides, we used rice and beans... YUMMY!
We didn't use any real measurements because it is an old recipe from her family but just eyeball everything haha!
We also used a lot more peppers because we love it spicy but try it and let me know what you think!
2) If you could have a profession besides teaching, what would it be?
I have always been interested in medicine {doctor, nurse}. I would need a whole lot more schooling!
3) Are you a sports fan?
Kinda! I love the Arizona Cardinals and the Arizona Diamondbacks! I love going to their games!!
4) Do you have any hobbies outside of blogging and school related things?
Shopping!! Reading!! Spending time with my Aly bear!
5) What is something you won't leave home without?
I try not to forget my iPhone and wallet!
6) Where do you like to vacation?
I haven't really been on a real vacation but I would love to go to Hawaii or somewhere far and beautiful!
7) What is your favorite movie?
I don't really LOVE movies but I do enjoy comedies! I love to laugh!
8) Do you have a special talent?
Nope! I wish I could sing or draw but I can't!
9) Who is your favorite CHILDREN'S author?
Mo Willems is great!
10) Do you think technology makes things easier?
Yes!! I love that I can Google everything!! :)
11) Would you ever participate in extreme sports?
Yes, if I were good at it! I tried skateboarding once and I kept falling so I need something that I am good at!
12) What do you like most about teaching?
I love little lightbulbs going off. I love when kids are beginning to learn how to read and see their little eyes light up! Love Love Love!
