Getting Acquainted, Nouns

Answers to 2 Truths and lie:
1. I have lived in the same house twice 5 years apart.  We lived there once, moved out, and moved back a few years later.
TRUTH: When my parents separated when I was 4, my mom, brother, and I moved in with my grandparents (and the uncle mentioned below).  We moved out when my mom remarried.  My grandparents moved out and we bought the house from them.  Same house, different floor. :) 
2. I am older than my uncle by 5 months, making my mom and grandma be pregnant at the same time-grandma still pregnant when my mom was delivering me.
TRUTH: This is true!  My grandma was 5 months pregnant when my mom was delivering me. 
I was born in October and he was born in February. Because we were living together, my uncle and I went to kindergarten together, hand in hand! :)
3. I found my dream job on my first try and and the application process was an easy one for me!
LIE: I worked in day care for 2 years HATING the experience (nothing wrong with daycare, but not a good experience with it) and FINALLY found this job as a 3rd year teacher.  After hours and hours of applying and rejection letter after rejection letter, I finally found this job and I am so, so happy now.
This week is nouns. Pick your favorite person, place, thing, and animal.

I would have to say my husband.  We have been together for 10 years. We started dating when we were 15, freshmen in high school, and have been together ever since.  We have been through all the school dances, applying to college, going to college (2 hours apart), him going to get his pharmacy doctorate in a different state while I was finishing up student teaching, living in a different state from all of our family, and then finally me getting a job I love and making it back to Wisconsin, home sweet home.  He proposed to me in the preschool in which I was doing a practicum (on campus) and arranged my roommates to video and photograph it.  He wanted to "combine the two loves of my life: him and teaching, into my proposal. He is awesome.  We were married in 2011, 8.5 years after we got together.

It would have to be a tie between my parent's cottage in Northern WI and my husband's grandfather's cottage.  They are just peaceful places for us to relax on the beach (for the 3 months of summer we do get around here) and be with family.  It can be a nice place to relax and a nice place to party with family. 
Right now, I would have to say my mantle.  I love, love, love decorating for the holidays.  I created a mantle in our house when we didn't have one and we just recently got an electric fireplace that just makes it look so much cooler! 
Our dog (a puggle) Pudge.  We adopted Pudge when he was 4 1/2.  His owners had health problems and he needed a home.  A family friend took him but couldn't keep him because she had to many dogs already. She gave him to her aunt, but she was to old to bend down and hook him up to go out so she gave him back to the family friend again.  That family friend finally contacted my mom (who is known to take in animals who need a home--she has 4).  My mom contacted me and finally, we got Pudge.  I cannot imagine my life with out Pudge.  He is our fur baby.  He is spoiled rotten and he knows it!
