Get to know your fellow blogger!

Thanks to Ali over at Last Splash for tagging me in the "get to know your fellow blogger" blog-o-sphere activity!  You should skate on over to her blog, she is hilarious and heartwarming, and has a wonderful perspective on life and motherhood.  Does being tagged in a blogging activity mean I am famous?  No probably not, but at any rate, I hope you learn something new about me!  So here are the questions I am to answer...

1. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
This one is tough.  I have always loved ice cream, in most any flavor.  Since my Type I diagnosis, I have had to scale back on my ice cream habit, but I have spent lots of time sampling different types of sugar-free ice cream.  My current favorite is Edy's No-sugar added Fudge Tracks...yumm!  Recently I just made some homemade, sugar-free (made with xylitol) vanilla ice cream and it was pretty good!

2.  What is the worst job you have ever had?
I am not sure I would classify any of my jobs as "the worst".  I have actually really enjoyed all of the jobs I have had and feel like I have learned many skills from each opportunity and even gained some life long friends from a few.  As I write this I am thinking about all of my jobs I have had and really, truly cannot think of a job that was worse than any other. 

3.  What is the best vacation you have ever taken?
The best vacation ever....well considering our last few vacations have ended in some kind of catastrophe, I would consider any vacation that actually went as planned would be awesome!  But my very best vacation was a trip to Thailand with my hubby and my dad.  Dad was on a business trip and hubby and I hopped a plane to visit him while he was there.  Hubby and I flew to Thailand, stayed 3 days, did a crash tour of Bangkok, and returned home.  It was the quickest, craziest, and most exciting trip I have ever taken.  The food was awesome and it was amazing experiencing a new culture.

4.  What is your dream job/career?
Honestly, I am doing my dream job.  Teaching agriculture was my dream job until my Type I diagnosis made it a little too difficult.  Now, I am a homemaker and a backyard farmer.  One day I hope to be promoted to "Goat Farmer".  I guess that would be my ultimate dream job....a goat farmer!

5.  Who was your favorite teacher and why?     
My favorite teacher....there are mom and my dad.  Honestly, they have taught me more than many of my school teachers combined.  My parents have taught me to be considerate, friendly, compassionate, polite, and spiritual.  They taught me to follow my dreams and listen to my heart (and my head!).  They taught me how to love and be loved and the value of family. I could even include professionalism, poise, confidence, and public speaking to the list!   Truly, the list goes on and on.  I can think of other folks that have had a major impact on my life, folks who have taught me many things over the years, but none that could compare to my parents.  Mom and Dad have taught me more than even they will ever know.
So, there you know some things about me that maybe you didn't already know!  Now, I guess the idea of these blog-o-sphere activities is to nominate someone else to do the same.  I would like to get to know these folks a little better...
