Hi, friends!! Can't wait to link up with you all for #teacherweek2015 !

Today is Monday, which means 5 Fun Facts!!

Here they are, in no particular order:

1. I am a Disneyland Annual Passholder! I have held a pass since 2009, and can't imagine what I did for fun before! ;) I try to jam down there (I live about 5 hours north of Disneyland) after school on Fridays for long weekends, and go during summer break, spring break, winter break, and any other time I can!
My favorite character is Minnie

I even RUN sometimes!

2. I drove the same Ford ZX2 from 2002 (the year I graduated from high school) until 2013. I bought my very first car on my own with my own down payment the weekend before the school year started. I love the color of this car, but I love that NO ONE helped me purchase it even more! :)

Not sure why my tan is funky in this picture....

 3. I may be slightly seriously addicted to Dr. Pepper. I am Christian, but practice the Catholic tradition of Lent most years, and I pretty much ALWAYS give up Dr. Pepper. Not soda. Dr. Pepper. I take major offense when a server at a restaurant offers "root beer" in its place.When my family visited Texas 3 summers ago, I made sure to visit the Dr. Pepper Museum in Waco. Do you believe my love for the 23 flavors yet?

4. My whole family cheers for the San Francisco Giants. I was raised in a SF Giants household, but I am *GASP* an Oakland Athletics fan... I joined the fandom in 2006, and haven't looked back (even when the bandwagon fans jumped ship during the 2010 World Series)!!

5. In February 2014, People Magazine contacted me because I had won a trip to Fox Studios (I had entered an online contest on a whim), and would get to visit the sets of New Girl and The Mindy Project. I was a New Girl fan already, but quickly became a fan of The Mindy Project as well. It was a trip of a lifetime, and I am glad I got to share it with my sister and parents!

I hope you enjoyed reading my fun facts! Link up at Bloghoppin' to share yours! 


  1. You may be shocked to hear that I've never been to Disneyland OR Disneyworld. Never. I'm not much of a traveler, and they're too far away. Dr. Pepper and root beer are NOTHING alike!

    1. You NEED to go!! I haven't been to WDW, but I don't know what I would do without Disneyland!! :)

  2. How could root beer be considered a substitute for Dr. Pepper?! They aren't even in the same ballpark! We're Oakland A's fans in our house, too. When my son's little league team was the SF Giants, we had a few people on edge, but we got through it. ;)

    1. I agree! Dr. Pepper is FAR superior to root beer!! YAY for Oakland A's fans!!

  3. I'm so jealous of your Annual Pass!!! I haven't been since I was 7 and I'm WAY overdue for another visit!! My niece is completely obsessed with Minnie, I myself am an Eeyore fan!! I LOVE that you love Dr. Pepper so much!! I too am a fan, and OMG root beer is not even close!!! Congrats on your new car, what an amazing feeling that must have been to drive it off the lot!! Isn't that new car smell the best?
    Thanks so much for sharing your five fun facts with us, I love getting to learn more about my friends!!
