3. I have a niece that is 4 and she always has to have animal print on her nails when she comes to my house. 

4. I have to sleep with a fan on.  Not really to keep cool but to circulate air.

7.  I am a Taurus and can be extremely stubborn at times.

11.  I absolutely love looking at nail art blogs maybe even more than writing my own blog.
