5 Questions- Brittany Toll

I am so, so, so excited to introduce this months 5 Questions participant- Brittany Toll! Brittany blogs over at Happy Brittany- which really IS the Cutest Blog on the Block- and was Miss New Mexico USA 2011. To me, the most admirable and impressive thing about Brittany is that she is so dedicated to closing the education gap! She's a former Teach for America Corps member and a current staff member. Her passion for what she does, for closing the education gap, is so inspiring.

Here are Brittany's answers to 5 Questions:

1. Something on your bucket list: 
Travel the Grecian Islands.
2. Best piece of advice and/or favourite saying/quote: 

The book The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz gave me some of the best advice I have ever heard. I have re-read it a few times now and hearing about the Four Agreements never gets old.
Those agreements are:

1. Be impeccable with your word
2. Don’t take anything personally
3. Don’t make assumptions and
4. Always do your best.

If you read the book the detailed descriptions of each help you internalize how to follow the Four Agreements and apply them to your life.
3. Favourite place:
Las Cruces
, New Mexico
a) Where to stay:
The Hotel Encanto

b) Where to eat:
Breakfast: Mesilla Valley Kitchen Lunch: Andales Dinner: La Posta

c) What to see/do: Check out the Plaza at Old Mesilla full of a beautiful old buildings and churches, food, shopping, entertainment (look up happenings before you go) and rich with culture of the Spanish-Mexican-American southwest.

4. You're given $10,000 and 24 hours to spend it. You can't give it to other people, invest it or save it. What would you do:  
I’d pay off all of my debt, plain and simple. I have incurred a lot from traveling, competing at Miss USA and moving to new cities & places. 
5. Historical figure or fictional character you'd like to be:  

Alice from Alice in Wonderland. I actually feel that I relate to her a lot with her curiosity and hunger for adventure and who wouldn’t want to spend their time in Wonderland and reconnect with their gratitude for the real-world?

HUGE thank you to Brittany for participating and taking the time from her super busy schedule to answer these questions. Please check out her blog, Happy Brittany. Brittany's blog always adds sparkle to my day, inspires me and helps me put things in perspective.
