  1. There are seven years between my brother & me.  It worked well for us, we have always gotten along and never really dealt with that sibling rivalry.  We live together now and still get along.
  2. From the age of five on I said I would be a lawyer, yet here I am at 26 and still not pursuing it, I still want to though, someday.
  3. My dog Belle is 4 years old and I feel like she is a direct copy of me.  Attitude included.
  4. When I was in the first grade my best friend told me only boys wore jeans, so until fifth grade I refused to wear jeans.  Drove my mother crazy I'm sure.
  5. I have ridiculous short arms & legs, like I am pretty it is a disorder.
  6. I have never been on a plane and I worry the longer I don't the more anxiety I'll develop about it.
  7. I have Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) It sucks sometimes but I try not to let that define me or use it as a excuse to be unhealthy.
  8. I want a bunch of kids, I always saidI would have like seven, but should probably get in a serious relationship first :)
  9. My fasvorite color is pink.
  10. I have this annoying habit of listening to a song for 25 seconds and  then changing it.  It can drive people crazy!
  11. My very first job outside of babysitting, I kind of fell into, and now I am doing it full time. 
Now on to the questions that were asked of me. I had two sets :).

7. Favorite memory?
Last December I went to Myrtle Beach with a friend & her family, my grandma happened to be down there as well, so we met up with them and I got to spend a day with her on vacation.  We had a lot of fun together, went swimming and just talked.  I feel like i don't make enough time to spend with them so that was great :)

Haha is talking an option? I won a tongue twister in the seventh grade, maybe that? :)

OO good one..I really like the Motto song by Drake I think? Random I know. and I love Katy Perry's Part of Me.

This is hard, I like all music.  I would say if I had to pick one it would be Country,
