I am a Done Girl.
I am DONE hiding.
I am DONE with negativity.
I am DONE with the lazy lifestyle.

Personal Information:
I teach 1st grade in Minnesota. I just moved to a new town and for the first time, am living on my own.

Other Information:
I have quite the list of hobbies! I love reading, but I feel like I never have time for it. I also love music. I play the flute and piano and whatever other instruments are lying around. I also really love theater and going to plays and musicals. My favorite musical is a toss up between Rent, Les Mis and Wicked. I really enjoy going to movies with my family and watching netflix at home (I really love documentaries). I also really love craft projects (and quilting) so I'll be set when I have my own classroom for all those school projects :-)

WAy to go girl! I am so proud of you. I started in the same place at the same time but I got pregnant and derailed. You are such an inspiration, I am so excited to have this little boy this summer so I can start working out and looking as smoking hot as you do! Keep it up! I love checking in on you and seeing all the amazing things you are doing! I am getting the okay from my doctor, I want an exercise routine before the baby gets here so I can start with a bang after I get released after the delivery. I am so happy that you are doing so wonderfully! You look absolutely amazing! Size 16 I haven't seen that since I was in High school eeek! I can't wait to see you have hit the onederland!
