I "Mustache" you a question...

One of my "intentions" for December was to post at least once a week. I guess I forgot how exhausting the 3 weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas can really be when you're a teacher. I had planned on a "Weekend Update" post...but I just can't muster up the energy to do it.

Luckily, a few weeks ago I was tagged by Kelli over at Redhead on the Run to complete a fun little survey! I had every intention of completing it within a few days of being tagged...unfortunately life got in the way (the 3 weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas strikes again) and I had to put it on the back-burner. I've been filling it out a little at a with the little energy I have left today I decided I would complete it :)

1. Four names that people call me, other than my real name:

a. Ms. Walter- I teach 3rd grade and I hear my name more times in a day than I can count :)
b. Aunt Heavy- It's not the most endearing name....but it's what my sweet little niece has come up with, so I will smile and embrace when we were kids her dad used to call me I suppose it was only natural :)
c. Mrs. Walters- for some reason people just can't seem to remember that it's Walter not Walters and that I am Ms. not Mrs. I even got mail all through college addressed to Heather Walters AND Heather Walter. I'm still not sure that the university didn't think that I was 2 different people!
d. Goose- My best friend from college (and her family) call me this. The nickname all came about from a very non-traditional way of meeting your best friend :)

2. Four jobs I have had:

a. Sonic car hop
b. Tanning Salon attendant (is that what you would call them?)
c. Summer Camp Counselor/Teacher 
d. Teacher (5th grade and 3rd grade)

3. Four movies I've watched more than once:

a. Dirty Dancing
b. Along Came Polly
c. Star Wars
d. Fight Club

4. Four Books I recommend

a. House Rules by Jodi Picoult
b. Look Again (Lisa Scottoline-or any book by her really!)
c. Still Alice by Lisa Genova
d. The Help by Kathryn Stockett

**This list was REALLY hard to narrow down, I LOVE to read and I have SO many books that I would recommend!

5. Four places I have lived

a. Gardner
b. Baldwin
c. Pittsburg
d. Overland Park

6. Four places I have been

a. Montana
b. Cancun
c. Florida
d. Minnesota

7. Four places I would rather be right now

a. Anywhere sunny and warm
b. With my niece Finley
c. Cuddled up in bed
d. Running

8. Four things I don't eat

a. Onions
b. spicy food
c. black olives
d. paint chips? I couldn't think of anything else...I love, love, love food and I will eat just about anything :)

c. My 2015 New Year's Resolution!
d. Running another marathon (maybe?)

12. Four things I am always saying

a. I feel like...
b. Your voice needs to be at a 0- this is our noise level system at school...and my spirited bunch needs reminding 20-40 thousand times a day ;)
c. I'm never drinking again ;)
d. I'm hungry
