Tuesday, Tuesday!

Tuesday, already! How can that be?

Linking up with Tiffany and Lauren for Tuesday Topics 
~Four Things You Don't Know About Me~

As a teenager I had a "Britney Book".. I collected pictures of Ms. Spears and had different sections in my book by genre of picture. As you can see below some categories I had in my book were:

Young Britney
Britney wearing hats
Britney Valentines

There were multiple volumes of this Britney Book - when I would get in trouble when I was a teenager and got something "taken away" it was usually my Britney Book scrapbook materials. Embarrassing. 

Although, who am I to talk about being a changed woman - my bachelorette party was Britney Spears themed!! Yes, the bartender's arm says "I'm a Slave for Kathleen"

I do not like doing things outside of my comfort zone. I am a girl that loves routine in all aspects of life.  At the gym, I stick to all of my normal exercises - at restaurants, I always order the same things - at work, I perfect certain skill sets.

When I was little I loved performing. I did a music/dance camp every summer and thought I was a star. As I got older I thought it was cool to showcase my dancing skills at family gatherings or end of the season sports parties as seen below. I was am the uncoordinated "Baby Spice" in the background that clearly has NO rhythm.

I love the water. Growing up I was a swimmer, lifeguard, swim instructor and coach. I miss it all a lot. It was something I was good at and something that was very rewarding. Plus, the amazing tan in the summer was a bonus :)
