thirty-four

My birthday is June 1st.  This year I turned 34 years old.
I thought it would be fun to share a few photos and thirty-four random things about me!

1. I am a Starbucks Gold Card member and I love when I receive these little cards in the mail.
2. I love coffee.  Plain, black, coffee.

(My birthday coffee with an Oh Sweet Joy coffee cuff.)

3. I started teaching when I was twenty-three years old.  Right out of college.  I was young.
4. I was offered my teaching contract at the same time as my Matron-of-Honor.
5. I graduated from the University of Iowa.  I will always be a Hawkeye!
6. I used to wear a lot of white.
7. Now I wear a lot of black.
8. I love jeans.
9. I love to wear skirts and dresses in the summer (but not in the winter.)
10. I am an introvert.
11. I hardly ever start a conversation with a stranger.
12. But if a stranger starts a conversation I will happily chat away.
13. I could listen to Dave Matthews Band or The Nadas all day long.
14. One of my favorite summer jobs was being a camp counselor at Living History Farms.
15. I am not a swimmer and don't like to be in water where I can't touch the ground.
16. But I do love boating.
17. I only camp under certain conditions.
18. I was a Girl Scout.
19. I am sensitive.  Really sensitive.
20. I am a picky eater but I try to hide it.
21. People tend to think I am a "good-girl."
22. I am really a wild child.
23. I have the mouth of a sailor (if children are not present.)
24. I have yet to swear in front of my students.
25. I have sworn in front of Kate.

26. I have a wicked sweet tooth.
27. I love to bake (but dislike cooking.)
28. I eat chocolate daily.
29. I never turn down a piece of cake or cupcakes

(Raspberry Lemonade cupcakes from Happy Cakes.)

30. I hope to one day own a charming older home with lots of character.
31. I love technology.  Sometimes a little too much. 
32. I try to always put others before myself.
33. I love my family and friends more than words can ever say.
34. I hope to live more, laugh more, and love more this year!
