Blog-tember, Day 1: All About Me

Happy Blog-tember, y'all! Oh. My. Stars. TODAY IS THE DAY!  Another year in the making, the 2016 Blog-tember Challenge kicks off with a start and the train keeps on truckin' through to the end of the month. I am SO excited that you're here, and I can't wait to get to know you all better by the end of this.

For a complete list of The Blog-tember Challenge prompts, go HERE!

Day one is always fun with an introduction, and this year I wanted to mix it up a bit. I could tell you I'm a high school theatre teacher, or that I'm a Texas gal born & raised. I could say that I love to travel and I spend too much time on Instagram, or I could mention that I'm an over-packer and a star procrastinator. In previous years I've done a vlog, an essay, and so on to tell you all these things, but today I thought I'd play a round of Either/Or. I'll admit it, I'm NO good at this game, but it's my challenge so I'll do what I want ;)
