Brittney at Running in High Heels has tagged me with the Honest Scrap award. Thanks Brittney, I love reading your blog! Here are 10 truths about me:

1. I am a list-maker! I have all sorts of lists on all kinds of different notepads everywhere and sometimes it is secretly fun when I find an old one and can cross things off. 

2. I have danced since I was three and was a cheerleader in middle school, high school and my freshman year in college at Elon. I am stubborn and didn't cheer after my first year there because after the season was over, they decided they wanted to require the team to go to study hall together. Well, I was pledging Sigma Kappa and one of our requirements was to attend study hall. My cheerleading coach would not let me combine the two and I wasn't about to be in study hall for hours and hours every single night when I already had great grades anyway, so I said goodbye to cheerleading. Worked out though because I got involved in many other things!
3. The summer after my sophomore year I did an internship with the American Junior Golf Association. I was on the west coast team and traveled all over as a communications intern. I also had to be a rules official, even though this was my first experience in golf. This is where my walkie-talkie came in. On a daily basis I would call in for help, example — "umm, a boy's golf ball got stuck in a tree, what is the ruling again?? . . . " Once I thought I could make a ruling myself, yeah, it was wrong. 

4. I have quite a sweet tooth. I could eat only sweets for a meal and be satisfied. This is very bad, don't worry I don't actually do this.  

5. I love all things Disney and I'm not afraid to admit this. That includes the Disney Channel and High School Musical!

6. I have an interesting monogram. My initials are AEP so when they are in monogram form they end up being —  aPe. Now don't get me wrong because I love my whole name, but I prefer to just have aep straight across when I have something monogrammed :)

7. I studied abroad in Barbados. I don't like to admit this, but it really was like a vacation. In my defense I did have to read books, journal and have quizzes. And I did learn a lot. But, I also went to the beach every day. (This was during winter term, so just a month long.)

8. My real-life best friend Emily (Life Is A Party) and I have a love of feather boas!! At Elon we loved to be silly and wear them. We once wore them to the movies and got our littles to wear them as well. It made for a fun big-little outing!

9. I have to dress appropriately for holidays. Whether it's St. Patrick's Day, The 4th of July, Valentine's Day or Halloween, you will find me in the correct colors and usually with a matching headband and accessories. I find great joy in this. I ignore the teasing of co-workers and others. I figure, why not be cute and celebrate? All thanks to my mom because she gathers up fabulous holiday items and sends me a package.

10. If I could have any job in the world, I would be a Radio City Rockette.  

Thanks for reading! Feel free to play along.

I love the stories about your dance background! I couldn't have worked at a golf place. I would have started smacking people with the clubs when they annoyed me!
