5 Things

I'm guest posting for Alison over at Get Your Pretty On today, so be sure to check that out!

I was tagged by Lindsay of Lindsay J Everyday to do the 5 Things About Me tag. This is a really fun opportunity to get to share some things about me that I've never shared before! There are a few silly things and a few more serious things, so let's get started.

1. I am obsessed with my DVR. I don't think I ever watch live TV anymore. I set all my shows to record the season and catch up on episodes whenever I can. Curious about what I am watching? Project Runway, The Carrie Diaries, How I Met Your Mother, Teen Mom 2 (I know, I know...its my guilty pleasure), Pretty Little Liars, and the occasional HGTV or Food Network show.

2. I LOVE Tex Mex with every fiber of my being. I could eat fajita chicken soft tacos every single day of my life. If you live in the south, you are probably familiar with Chuy's, which is my all time favorite Tex Mex restaurant. Another of my favorites is Torchy's Tacos. Yummmmm!
My favorite fajita chicken soft tacos!

3. I am involved in a wonderful singles group at my church here in Dallas that I really enjoy. I've always been a shy person, but once I got involved with this group, I really felt like I came out of my shell. I spend a lot of time with the friends I have made there, including a Tuesday night small group Bible study and of course tons of social events on weekends. I've met some of my very best friends at church!

4. I own no less than 200 bottles of nail polish. I spent about a year of my life painting my nails every 2 or 3 days, and I'm not talking solid colors here. I tried out so many nail designs, and I'm getting better at it- finally! I still enjoy nail art, but I stick to more simple designs, glitter, and nail stamps, and I don't paint my nails anywhere near as often.
This is only about half of my collection- I need another polish rack!

5. I played Clarinet from 6th grade through high school, and one of my dream jobs would be to play in a orchestra that records movie soundtracks. Kind of far-fetched and random but I would love that!

Hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about me! I tag Mallory, Ashley, Kimberly, Faith, and Agi!
