Hello everyone!
Let me just say that I am so excited that Jacky asked me to guest-post. I have been wanting to branch-out and start what I like to call "real blogging" (you know... not just giveaways). This is going to be so much fun!
Well, to briefly introduce myself...
My name is Celeste and I am currently a sophomore in college - majoring in Early Childhood Education. I absolutely love kids...although my main "goal" in life really is just to become a stay-at-home-mommy someday, I thoroughly enjoy teaching in the classroom. For the past 5 years, I have been able to work in a Christian school (actually, the same school I attended) in the preschool and kindergarten departments. In high school, one of my elective periods was actually internship - and you bet I took that opportunity! :) Currently, I "team teach" kindergarten at the same said school; while I take my college classes in the evenings and online. (they call it "team teaching" - I'd call it an aide, but I do get to teach some subject areas.)

(I rambled some more here -- but deleted it ... opted for more of just a "random list" -- I love random lists.)
I have one sister, Chloe, who is 2 years younger than me.
 I absolutely love to cook/bake - but, the cleaning of the dishes? not so much. ha!
but... I'm also kinda a health-nut.
I love photography...and, ever since getting a dslr - I have kinda gone nuts. (I just. can't. stop.)!
I'm a font-o-holic.
I'm obsessed with Anthro. - although, really - their prices are a little ridiculous. (just sayin')
I do not like coffee (sorry, Jacky ... I just can't get into it.)
I never, ever, ever, EVER thought that I would be a "dog person" until we got our chocolate lab, Nora. Now, I can not imagine life without a pup around. ;-)
I am also quite passionate about politics. (Ronald Reagan is my homeboy.)
I've lived in Florida all of my life.
I'm a "military kid"- my daddy (yes - I still call him daddy) was in the U.S. Army for 29 years.
I'm a "name geek" (a.k.a. I read baby names websites for fun). ha!
If a crew of designers from Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware would like to come and furnish a home for me... I'd be cool with that. very cool with that.
I have way too many pairs of shoes. (but, not admitting an addiction...yet.)
My guilty [food] pleasure? Vanilla Coke Zero. (I know it's terrible for you, oh well.)
I drive a Honda Odyssey. No joke. I'm an 18-year-old that wanted an Odyssey. 
I love reality tv. 
Blogs are amazing. Seriously, I rarely do anything else online besides reading blogs.
I do not like Wal-mart. at all. (the place drives me crazy!)
I have a BlackBerry  crackberry - but would love to dump it for one of the shiny, new iPhones. ;-) 
and... of course! ... I am a Christian - striving to serve Him better each day and excited to see what plans He has for me!  

Now! Do you have some fun questions [or not-so-fun questions] for me? 
Anything. (random ones are always fun) ;-)
Leave 'em in the comments - and I'll answer them next Friday. 

p.s. I realized that I forgot to write about how I started my blog ... I'll post that in another post - maybe in a day or so. sound good?
