6. In high school I went to a Poison concert (just dated myself there) and got to appear in the music video for the opening band Britny Fox the song was Save the Weak.  If you record the video (or watch the video here) and then pause it at a certain spot you can see my head as the camera scans the audience.....I'm famous you guys!!!!
7. I'm a business owner.  My friend and I opened up Little Britches Consignment Sales (a semi-annual consignment sale) in our community about 10 years is the perfect second job for a teacher!!

And my nominations are......

  1. Thanks so much for the award! I will be sure to give it out to some other very versatile bloggers! - Krista

  2. What?!?! I did not know about #7! Now I need your autograph.

    1. You mean number 6? It was the concert I went to with Stacy and Shannon and I think Rae??? The car broke down near Topeka and Dad had to come and rescue us. I think you were with me at a party at Stacy's (or maybe Darrel's) when the video came out and we watched in the living room with a bunch of other people.


Thanks for your comment!
