The rules:  

1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions set for you in their post.
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people.

So here we go ….

1. I can tuck my ears into themselves. Have since I was a baby, and I still do it when I’m bored, or when I’m driving (no lie).

2. Not that this is a secret, but I have an anxiety disorder. And, I am INSANELY obsessive. Once I get an idea in my head I can’t let it go.

3. At this moment, if I could pick one place to visit, it would be the San Francisco area. I am dying to go to Alcatraz and the Winchester Mansion.

4. Kind of stolen from Shannon – I am addicted to Burts Bees (and ChapStick). If I suddenly realize I’ve forgotten it one day, my lips will actually hurt until I get my hands one some.

5. I am scared to be alone in my home. In fact, I’m actually scared to go downstairs in the middle of the night while Brad is asleep upstairs. I am constantly looking over my shoulder as I walk back up staircases in my house.

6. When I was in school/college, I actually enjoyed taking notes. One history class I had, the professor talked the entire class, and you just had to write down pretty much everything he said. I think that was my favorite class. J Sometimes I wish I could take a college course online now, so that I could take notes.

7. I knew Brad was the man I was supposed to marry about a week into our relationship. 100% certain of this, and I never doubted it, even if it took him a lot longer to get there.

8. I miss Game Nights with Shannon, Bryan, and Adam.

9. I just joined Weight Watchers at work. (Hopefully, we’re still waiting to see if we have enough people).
 Only planning on doing it for 3 months, because it will be fully reimbursed by my health insurance. But I’m excited to get some healthy eating tips from them.

10. Similar to #8, I need more crafting/girl time with Shannon and with Lindsay. Ladies, we’ve gotta schedule regular times to get together!

11. I do not plan to have any more children. One baby, and one pregnancy, is plenty for me!

Now, I have to answer Shannon’s questions!

1. What’s your favorite animal at the zoo? White Tigers. And Penguins, though around here that tends to be more of an aquarium type of thing.

2. What is your worst, and best habit? My worst is speaking/reacting before I think. I have no idea what my best one would be. I suppose telling Brad and Austin and my mom ‘I love you’ every day. (or in Mom’s case, almost every day).

3. Who are you most like in your family? I suppose my mom. She’s worse than me, but we both have a little hoarding tendency. We love “stuff.” However, it doesn’t take over our living spaces. We just like to fill our storage space to the max. J Also, we both LOVE containers and pretty boxes. But, there are definite qualities that I hope I never pick up, such as criticizing my child’s parenting.

4. What celebrity do you think you would be actual friends with if they knew you? The cool people don’t like me, and Shawn Michaels is married and probably wouldn’t be “friends” with me. I’d probably be friends with someone from HGTV. Or maybe Rachel Ray.

5. What kind of class would you like to take? Too funny that this comes after my random fact above. Probably history. Again, because I love taking notes. My favorite history class ever was The Holocaust, in high school. We had an amazing teacher.

6. Would you go on a reality show? If so, which one(s)? Shannon, I can’t believe you’d turn down the $5,000 visa gift card. I so want to be on “What Not to Wear.”

7. If you had to change your first name today, what would you change it to? Lexi. Always loved the name Lexi.

8.  Do you dance at weddings? Hell yes.

9. What is the worst thing you have ever tasted? Egg Foo Young. Or pickled beets. Both of them are something I will never put into my mouth again.

10.Would you rather go without deodorant for 3 months, or without brushing your teeth for one week? Without deodorant. I rarely stink, but I can’t even stand not brushing my teeth for a day.

11. Carebears, or Popples? Oooh, I had a Popple sleeping bag when I was little! But I never actually had a Carebear or a Popple. I do think Popples are cuter because they flip inside out, though! So, Popples!

And now, MY questions to my tagees!

1. If you could swap careers without further training or money concerns, what would you do?

2. What is one thing you are constantly struggling with in your life? (Work or personal).

3. If you had $1 million (net after taxes), what would you do with it?

4. If you could only read one blog/website for the rest of your life, which one would it be? You have to choose ONE. Search engines don’t count, sorry folks.

5. Describe your dream home. What does it look like? How big is it? What special features would it have?

6. It’s your last meal before a major fast (for whatever reason). You can eat anything you want. What is it? No judging here, be as unhealthy as you want!

7. What’s your favorite movie from your childhood?

8.  If you were stranded on a deserted island, but you had clothing, electricity, food, and water, what would be the one item you would want with you?

9. What is your favorite thing to do (when not away on a vacation – I mean during your regular everyday life)?

10. How much would you need to be paid to lick the inside of a garbage truck?

11. A Christmas Story or Christmas Vacation?

I’m not tagging anyone specific, because I hate making people do surveys if they don’t want to. But I hope everyone reading this could answer at least one of my questions (or all of them, if you like!) in the comments. Or, repost this and leave a link to your post.

  1. You KNOW I gotta do yours now!

    1. If you could swap careers without further training or money concerns, what would you do?
    Probably a Personal Trainer, or maybe a successful hippy, healthy restaurant owner!

    2. What is one thing you are constantly struggling with in your life? (Work or personal).
    Confidence/Self Esteem. I started to list like 5 things, but I realized this was the base of all of them!

    3. If you had $1 million (net after taxes), what would you do with it?
    Joel would make me save it. The bastard! :-) But I would probably do a minor (a few thousand!) clothes shopping spree!

    4. If you could only read one blog/website for the rest of your life, which one would it be? You have to choose ONE. Search engines don’t count, sorry folks.
    DANG. That is hard! Probably... PostSecret, or CuteOverload!

    5. Describe your dream home. What does it look like? How big is it? What special features would it have?
    It is ginormous, but for no reason at all. I just like really big, open rooms! dark sexy hardwood floors, inground pool, billiards table, aaaamazing kitchen with every gadget, big walk in pantry, and a sunny, windowed bedroom with remote control black out curtains! And no other houses around for miles!

    6. It’s your last meal before a major fast (for whatever reason). You can eat anything you want. What is it? No judging here, be as unhealthy as you want!
    Brown's lobster, fried clams, frenchy fries with you! THEN, chocolate cupcake with perfect buttercream frosting and a reese's peanut butter cup!

    7. What’s your favorite movie from your childhood?
    Labyrinth! Ok, still is! :-)


    8. If you were stranded on a deserted island, but you had clothing, electricity, food, and water, what would be the one item you would want with you?
    LOTION! :-)

    9. What is your favorite thing to do (when not away on a vacation – I mean during your regular everyday life)?
    Get into my heated bed, with Joel & the pups, and watch a show or movie.

    10. How much would you need to be paid to lick the inside of a garbage truck?
    This made me laugh out loud!
    I'd do it for.... $300.
    I'll lick anything, pretty much.

    11. A Christmas Story or Christmas Vacation?
    Never seen either!
