My facts:
I love having long hair but hate how long it takes to dry. I want 'mermaid hair' though, so it'll keep growing!
My favorite colors are orange, pink and glitter/sparkle.
I must have my nails painted all the time. I feel really awkward without them painted.
I was hit by a truck one time. Don't worry, I survived. 
The pink bow emoji is one of my favorites. #iPhoneLove
Chicken is my favorite thing to eat.
Leggings are my favorite thing to wear.
I drive an orange Jeep Wrangler. 
I have two little brothers who are really awesome. 
I get paid to Facebook, Tweet & Instagram. My job has more to it than that, of course, but hey, it's cool.
I love buying and wearing pretty shoes, but I always take off my shoes to be barefoot as soon as it's acceptable.

My answers to Stephanie's questions:
What is your favorite TV show? 
Currently, I'm loving New Girl. I enjoy Hulu+ so that could change when I discover something else I can watch quickly from beginning to end :) Of course, I'm also a big fan of SportsCenter and my DirecTV only knows channels like ESPN.
Do you have a degree & what was your major? 
Yes - I graduated from Oklahoma State University in December 2010 (has it really been two years!?) with a B.S. in agricultural communications. 
Do you have any pets & what kind?
I have a pug, Molly Jo. She's super cute :) 
Favorite drink.
I seriously, seriously, seriously love diet coke. With vanilla. From sonic. Not that I'm picky or anything. In second place is sweet tea. 
Favorite hobby.
I enjoy watching OSU football and OSU, Thunder & Panther basketball games. Shopping is fun, too - especially online for anything monogrammed. Hello, Marley Lilly
Married w/children?
Nope, to both. 
Favorite night out or in?
I love OKC Thunder games! Going to the game or watching at home is always a fun night!
What's your job?
I am the eCommunications Manager at a nonprofit in Oklahoma City. It's amazing. I love it.
What type of books do you like to read?
I like reading a wide variety of books, thanks to the Kindle on my iPad, I make it through them frequently... currently waiting on me is the Hunger Games trilogy - I saw the first movie and decided I had to read the books, since books are always better than the movies. 
Favorite 2012 memory?
2012 was a pretty awesome year. I really can't pick just one - I spent time with great friends, watched the Cowboys win in the Fiesta Bowl, helped Lori welcome Baby Tate into the world, watched my middle brother play his first varsity basketball game, had my tweet on the Lamar Billboard a couple of times, spent time lounging by the pool, got an incredible job, and went to OKC Thunder games. See? There are too many to pick just one awesome thing. 
What do you like to do when you go out with the girls? 
Anything! Only one of my best girls lives anywhere close, so I do a lot of iMessaging. When we see each other in person, it doesn't matter what we do, because there is a lot of laughter guaranteed - and that, my friends, is the best part. 

My nominees:
Stephanie, from Life, Actually (who might not do it, since she gave me this award, but I'm giving it back and she's awesome so go check her out. Dealio?)
Tiffany, who is Figuring Out the Plot (I'm cheating here because she has more than 200, but still.)

My questions for them:
Who are three people you'd like to have a one-hour conversation with?
What makes your favorite school/team better than the rest?
What's your favorite way to relax? 
Do you wear jewelry? If so, what are things you must wear every day?
Heels or flats, or other? If other, explain :)
What do you do for work, or, if you're still in school, what are you studying/going to be "when you grow up"?
What is your favorite movie? Why should I see it? (I'm trying to expand my horizons here, ya'll)
Where is your favorite place to eat, and what do you order?
Have you ever broken a bone? If so, which one(s)?
