11. I love Saturday mornings.
Saturday mornings are undoubtedly my favorite time of the week. I love getting up early, making myself a good cup of coffee and just relaxing. It's my me time. I find it incredibly rejuvenating. For just a few hours, there's no schedule I have to keep and nothing that I have to do, so I often spend a lot of that time reading, listening to music or just thinking.
12. Seasons are my favorite time of year.
Yeah, that's right. I said seasons. Technically, fall is my favorite time of year, but I love all of the seasons. I love the feelings I associate with each one, and the anticipation that comes as one season transitions into the next.
13. Growing up, I lived next door to an Olympic gold medalist.
Jim Hartung! Check him out!
14. I love Shirley Temples!
I'm not ashamed of it, either. Even when I'm not acting as a DD, I still order this drink. It's that sweet, sweet grenadine. I just can't get enough!
15. Carnival rides -- oh, yeah!
I absolutely adore carnival rides. I can't help myself. They leave me smiling so much that my cheeks hurt, but all I want is more! There's just something special about being flipped around at night, among flashing lights, cotton candy and funnel cakes in a contraption that may nor may not be completely safe. Oh, and the best part? My favorite rides are those that most people hate--ya'know, the super spinny ones that leave you feeling sick and dizzy. Bring on the tilt-a-whirl!
