4. I've lived in Iowa all my life and love it.

And I could certainly go on since there are many more great bloggers out there, but I'll stop here.  I also have to let you all know that I won't be commenting on blogs as frequently for the next month or so because the rest of my semester is going to be very busy!!  I'll have much more free time during the summer though, and I'm looking forward to blogging more regularly!

I hope you're all enjoying some great spring weather!
