My blogger buddy Brooke from What's the Story, Brooke? tagged me in a fun little game! Here it goes:

Here are 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.

Okay, so here we go!!: 11 Random Things about me:

1.  I am deathly afraid of snakes and any other creepy crawlies. I literally scream like a baby and jump around and refuse to come remotely close to any of them!!
2. I am trying my hardest to be a good cook. I don't love to do it but I do love it when I cook something and it turns out edible! I love it so much that I brag a bit and talk about my wonderful cooking skills for days! :)
3. I love high end fashion and styles but I also love finding an awesome sale or a great deal!!
4. I won third place and $50 for an essay I wrote in 7th grade but I can't remember now what it was about.
5. I have developed an obsession for Dorothy Draper furniture! Too bad every piece I see is a few thousand dollars. Enter Ikea and a DIY project thanks to Pinterest!!
6. I take vitamins regularly but I suck at swallowing pills. If they are big, i have to bite them in several pieces before taking them. How gross is that?!?
7. The Amazing Race is my favorite reality show. [I don't watch much tv at all]. I secretly want to submit a video and apply to be on the show but I am not a fan of flying or bungee jumping. 
8. My first time in an airplane was on my way to our honeymoon destination. Husband had never flown either.  Definitely an experience for us! It was also our first time out of the country! :)
9. I am addicted to coffee which I said would NEVER ever happen to me. I can drink a Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte in 3.5 seconds and then want to just eat the cup to go along with it. Thanks mom for always telling me that one day I would enjoy sipping chugging coffee with you. It happened.
10. My family eats at the same restaurant every Friday night. We've been doing it for 15+ years. My husbands family=same restaurant, every Friday night, 15+ years. Hence how he recognized me before we met. Now..we all eat together at the same restaurant every Friday night! :)
11. I love running and being healthy and living an healthy lifestyle, but I also love sugar. BLAHH! I have a love/hate relationship with my sweet tooth.

My Questions to Answer:

1. Birthdays. Love them or hate them.
I love birthdays. I love celebrating with friends and family but I don't like to think about the fact that I am one year older! Age is just a number and I will NOT focus on age as a measure of anything!!
2. Get your purse/gym bag: What are the first five things you pull out?
Hobo wallet, lip gloss, tide pen, old receipts, a healthy snack of some sort
3. What is the one meal you can make better than anyone else?
Black bean and corn salad!
4. You get one wish. No restrictions. What is it?
Wow, this is a hard one. I would love for doctors to find a cure for cancer! I would also love for all of the world to understand that fad diets do NOT work and that living a healthy lifestyle is the only way to go!!
5. Cake or Pie?
Either, I love sweets of all kinds!!
6. What’s your secret talent?
Singing..i use to do it in public some but since then I have quit. I don't have a wonderful voice but its not bad either! I need to join the church choir again! Maybe one day!
7. Early bird or night owl?
5 years ago= night owl, like stay out all night and sleep until 12 total early bird, like 4:51am the alarm goes off! My dad tells me all the time how proud he is of me! We both now get up at the same time and I use to think my dad got up in the middle of the night! :)
8. Biggest pet peeve?
aggressive dogs that are loose and chase me when i am running, chewing with your mouth open, smoking, being late, saying you are going to do something and not follow that enough?!?!
9. What’s your favorite weird food combination?
cucumbers with pepper and vinegar...cant let it go to waste so I drink the leftover vinegar!
10. Which would you choose? No social media for a year or no working out for a month? Why?
Definitely no social media for a year. I don't think I would even want to live with myself if I had to go a whole month without working out. Me = total grumpy face!!!
11. What are you sending me for my birthday?
Lots of love and birthday wishes for a great day!!
