Seven Secrets

I was tagged by Jodi of day2daywear to reveal seven secrets about myself, and then pass this on to seven other bloggers.  I have enjoyed reading fellow bloggers' secrets and getting to know new blogs!  So, without futher adieu, my seven secrets:

  1. I have a subscription to Life & Syle magazine.  I do not admit this people I first meet because it usually makes people think I'm shallow!
  2. I have been in school for my whole life and just graduated in August with a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.  Most therapists dislike Dr. Phil... I think he's pretty alright.
  3. If my apartment was on fire and I had to choose between saving people or my two kitties I would save the kitties.
  4. If my workplace ever read the funny emails I exchange with my buddy/ co-worker Jessica, we'd have some major 'splaining to do!
  5. I'm semi-addicted to Zumba.  I love the workout and learning the new dance moves, but crack up whenever I catch myself in the mirror.  I'm trying to look cool and failing miserably. 
  6. I cannot be trusted near a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
  7. I'm not a kid person at all, but I pull it together for my niece and fiance's nieces and nephews.  They are the only kids I can get along with.  I try, but kids and me are like oil and water.  That is why I only do therapy with adults, no children!
And a little something extra for you because I like you...

I've gotten a few emails about who my fashion icons are.  I could say the name of some celebrities that I like, but I choose to take fashion advice from my Mom! 

Okay, there is an explanation for this.  Two years ago, when my little sister graduated from college, we all went out to the campus bars to celebrate.  We asked our mom to come with us, but she thought we didn't really want to go to the bars with our mom.  WRONG!  We called her and begged "Please come out with us, we're having such a good time!"  So she, and two of her sisters, got all dressed up in the most mismatching clothes they could find, piled on tons of gawdy makeup and jewelry, did their hair all crazy and came and found us at the bars.  When they walked into the bar, all eyes were on them as they came running over shouting "Kinsey!!  Rachel!!  Yohoo!!"  They were trying to embarrass us, but we we both so happy to have a table with the most beautiful ladies at the bar.  We all had a lot of fun that night, and I always remember how "fashionable" she looked that night!

Funny pics! I'm with you on #3, I would definitely save my cats before anything (or anyone) else!

I love #3! I'm the same way. My boys are my babies. I was asked recently what would happen if I had a baby who is allergic to cats. I told the lady I would either give the baby up for adoption or load the baby up on Benedryl. She looked at me like I was crazy. I told her I was kidding... kind of. :)

How fun that your mom is willing to just let go and have a good time! :)
I have never been good around kids either, but it's definitely different with your own baby! :)

My therapist friend Bethany loves Dr. Phil, so you're not alone :)

And zumba, oh my gosh, so much fun! Kind of ridiculous, like you mentioned, but that is the great part!
