I mustache you...

I Mustache You...

I was so excited when Beth from Our Pretty Little Girls
 Tagged me in this fun Q&A post! 
And on a sleepy Monday morning after a LOOOONG
 weekend,  It was the perfect time to Participate! 

Four names that people call me, other than my real name
  • Kel- though very few people can get away with this                                                                                without me cringing
  • Bell- Childhood nickname, sometimes my parents still                                                                                   use it
  • Babe- it's usually Christopher's go to term of                                                                                                 endearment 
  • Momma- What he refers to me as near Hallie

Four jobs that I have had:
  • Framing Specialist at Joann Fabrics- My first job                                                                                             ever. Though I quit after a pretty nasty injury to                                                                                           my finger. I worked with glass and blades, use                                                                                                  your imagination... 
  • Story Lady at Barnes and Noble- I actually really                                                                                          liked this job and made a lot of friends working                                                                                          there! I also got invited to kids birthday parties,                                                                                              which might be the sweetest thing ever!
  • Preschool teacher- I taught 2's and 3's! I actually still keep                                                                              in touch with a lot of the                                                                                                                          families and kids...they are all like 11 and 12 now! 
  • Nanny- I have met some great families doing this and am                                                                            so lucky to still work with such a great family! I have                                                                                  known these girls since the oldest was 2 (she is now 11!) 

Four movies I have watched more than once:
Just 4!?
  • When Harry Met Sally- It will forever be a favorite of                                                                                      mine that I can watch whenever, wherever! "Is one of                                                                                 us supposed to be a dog in this scenario?!" I love                                                                                             Nora Ephron!
  • Center Stage- Kinda cheesy, yes, but it makes me go                                                                                      back to my dancing days! Ahh!"Careful with that one,                                                                              you break it, you bought it!"

It was also how I announced my                                                                          pregnancy almost a year ago!
