Blog Award Combined with Tagging Questions....

Happy Saturday friends!
It's supposed to be freezing rain on this side of my world
 hopefully you are all safe, cozy and warm where you are!

Mrs. C over at My Amazing Fabulous Wedding & Life of My Dreams chose me as of the recipients of the Tell Me About Yourself Award and so i decided to accept the award and combine it to three tags i received this week.  Just so i don't overwhelm you all with information about myself.
So many of the questions i answered WERE awesome 
and definitely inspired many blog posts i am already cultivating.  
Thanks ladies for your creative questions. 
 Without further delay, here are my answers...

                                               1.What do you regret most in your life?

Love your answers, and thanks for participating! I'm busy working on classwork today, too, but am hoping for at least some downtime.

I worked and attended an amazing event that I hope works in my favor.

Awesome questions AND answers. I can relate to you watching Waitress and animal movies because I can watch dance movies all day everyday (even though they're normally horrible). The only thing I did today was go to see Red Tails. We had the freezing rain too, boooooo!

With Class & Sass,
