I've been tagged!

 Good afternoon readers!  I don't have a card today, but I was so excited that the lovely Lisa tagged me in this fun little post where you get to tell your readers a little more about yourself!  Before I get into that, I'm so excited for tonight!!!  =D  My birthday is this coming Sunday (I can't believe I'm going to be 27 already!), and so we're going to go out for my birthday tonight with a bunch of our friends to one of our favorite local places!  It's going to be such a great night, and the perfect way to kick off the holidays!  =D 
Ok, without further ado... here we go!
