I've been tagged and other random things

I've been MIA from the blog world this past weekend. I was with my church on a youth retreat and didn't have time to get on the computer. Meanwhile, I got tagged twice. So I guess I better post on that. Also, I am slowly attending the kindergarten Expo. It's awesome and I'm enjoying it so far. I love Hadar's rules and routines and have started Crystal's writing workshop. It was just what I needed.
Anyway, here are the rules:
These are the Rules
1. You must post the rules.
2. Post 12 fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create 12 new questions for the people you tagged.
4. Tag 12 people and link them on your post.
5. Let them know you've tagged them!

1. I'm getting involved in boy scouts because my fiance is a troop leader.

  1. Mellow Mushroom? Where you at girl, Georgia? Harry Potter is totally my fave too! And I love your room theme. How cute! I'm also an obsessive reader. I read a book a day on vacation. I really like the feel of an actually book but for vacations I use an e-reader. All those books were making my suitcases mighty close to 50 pounds! You should read Sharp Object by Gillian Flynn if you like dark twisty kind of novels. Really good.

  2. Funny that you don't do pets and you're marrying a vet. My cousin and I are both single and both don't do pets or debt. We're not sure which would be worse....marrying a guy with pets or lots of debt!
