Ten Sunshine Award Questions (and answers):
Favorite color: Pink, no question!  I have always, always loved that color!  That is the color I even choose for my bridesmaids dresses this past summer :)
Favorite animal:  It definitely has to be dogs!  Ever since I can remember, I've had a dog and life wouldn't be the same if I didn't have  my baby Lucy!!  The are very loyal and protective pets.
Favorite number: 21, when I was younger, I couldn't wait to get to that age.  So, it just became my fav number! 
Favorite non-alcoholic drink:Crystal Light!   I love just about any flavor: pink lemonade, fruit punch, strawberry kiwi, and etc.
Prefer Facebook or Twitter? I only have Facebook, so that's the one prefer. 
My passion: It has to be teaching.   I love being able to help students out and seeing "the light bulb click".  It can be a challenging job, but it is soo rewarding:)
Prefer getting or giving presents: Giving.
Favorite pattern: Ummm...not really for sure.  It used to be damask, but I don't know what it is now!
Favorite day of the week: Saturday because the weekend has just begun and it's not quite over with yet.  Plus, this is usually the time I get to see friends and family:)
