I love to laugh and have fun. (Cliche, I know, but it is true.) And nothing's better than making those around you laugh. I am a teacher. I like to wash my car. I love taking pictures. I am a bit of a tree hugger. I laugh at myself. I love books written for 6th graders. I tend to plan ahead, but can still do things on the fly. I don't eat meat. I look for the good in people. I'm known to text and drive. I could spend all my money on concerts, flip-flops, chap-stick and rounds at the bar. I always tend to bend the rules. I can't stand dirty dishes but I am ok with a messy room. I believe that a day without Mexican food is a day wasted. I love nights out and I enjoy nights in. I love music of all sorts. I still buy CDs. I make the best chocolate-chip cookies. I can be the life of the party or just an observer of the crowd. I dont care to sit in front of the TV and watch a game, but I am down to go to a game. I'm responsible in fiances and major life choices, but I don't like to admit it, because that would mean I am a grown-up. ;-) I definitely have "my act together" when it counts, but I enjoy being a goof most of the time instead. Even though, I am teacher I am a horrible speller and my students call me out on it all the time. I'm a dog person and a cat person. Most of the time I'm a leader, but sometimes I'm a follower and quiet often I'm on my own path. I love camping! Although, I have to admit I'm over the whole tent and shovel kind of camping these days. My only drug is caffeine, but I don't drink coffee. I love kids. I also have 2 of the best brothers a sister could ask for. Not to mention an adorable niece & nephew and a rock'n sis-in-law.
I can be stubborn at times. I'm a lil picky, but I don't always have to have it my way. Sometimes my room is too messy. I'll eat a 350 calorie meal and then follow it with a 350 calorie treat. :-/ I'm overly obsessed with my teeth. And I judge people with gingivitis. Yes, I can spot it!!
The only excerise I truly enjoy is swimming and yoga. I do my best to go swim a few miles each week at the gym and practice some namaste. I'm faithful in keeping active and burning calories, but I argue with my muffin-top on a daily basis. Ha! I just like beer and ice cream waaaaay too much.
I listen to a fairly wide variety of music, but lately it's mostly country. And I'm not afraid to spend a buck to go to concerts. One year I saw Toby Keith, Matchbox 20, Kid Rock, Celine Dion, Blue October, Timbaland with Chris Cornell and Metallica. See? That's the wide variety I mention. Ticketmaster loves me! And someday I plan on filling up all 80G of my ipod with music... I'm more than half way so far.
The first thing I notice on a person is their teeth. But more importantly I look for someone who can tease and joke. I am a big believer in laughing it off and moving foward. Therefore, I'm a sucker for those who make me laugh. Having a life outside of work is important too. I'd like someone with motivation and goals, but knows how to cut loose without losing focus. I need someone who will be my partner in crime. Patience, loyalty and a good heart are high on the list. Also, I like when someone takes the time to put up real-life photos of themselves on here. I look for smarts. Not necessarily book smarts, but I am seriously fond of capitals, periods and spell check.
And there is more... so much more. Don't forget to SMILE! :-)
FYI: If you didn't chuckle at my headline you probably wont find my humor as funny. Who doesn't like a fart joke?
