I've Been Taged!

Lindsey, over HERE, tagged me a post! I love this idea :) So, here goes! 

[the rules...]
one\ you must post the rules.
two\ post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
three\ answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
four\ tag eleven people and link them on your post
five\ let them know you've tagged them!

[Eleven fun facts about this girl...]
one\Like Lindsey, I'm a lefty :) It's funny because only lefties, notice lefties. lol 

two\ I have to eat things in even numbers. M & M's, tic tacks, things like that. I know, I'm weird.

three\ I started training with a friend to become a cheerleader in high school.  Our first 'workout/practice', I busted my elbow, got a huge blood club, had to wear a sling for a week, and a metal contraption at night for three months! (my arm would not move from a 90 degree position, so I had to literally stretch my arm back out. Still just slightly off, but would never notice)

four\ I played soccer from a little girl, through my junior year in high school.  Sadly, I was way better and scored all the time when I was little.  As I got older? Maybe I just lost the drive for it. I also HATED running when I played soccer, and ironically, I've run 7 half marathons and counting! lol

five\ I have to fix my couch, kitchen, house before I leave.  Even if no one is coming over, no one will see it, I cannot leave my house messy.  It stresses me out!

six\ I can be very impulsive.  Usually with spending (this is NOT a good thing).  When I get something in my head and I really want it, I can't stop thinking about it and usually end up getting it. 

seven\ I day dream A. LOT. I sometimes find myself staring out into space and thinking about something.  This can be good and bad. lol

eight\ I wear my heart on my sleeve.  Nine times out of ten, you know exactly what I'm feeling.  It's not the best quality, but it's hard to control.  I'm working on it, but it's tough....

nine\At the core, I am hopeless romantic. (this was Lindsey's answer and I am 100% with her!)

ten\ I still watch the Real World.  You can judge. I just can't help it! The drama sucks me in!

eleven\ I am a super routine oriented person.  My whole body/soul/mind can totally get mixed up and crazy if my routine is thrown way out of whack.  At times, vacations can wear me out more than relax me! It's a curse...

[questions from Lindsey]

one\Since you know will soon know what I am looking forward to in the new year, What are you looking forward to? I am looking forward to growing my business, both Preimer Jewelry and my own business plan. 
two\What must always be in your purse/bag when you leave the house? My Erin Condren Life Planner. Would not know what to do!

three\What did you want to be as a child, is that who you are today? I remember always wanting to be a kindergarten teacher :) lol I am NOT that today. Late in high school and into college, I knew I wanted to do business. I always looked up to my dad in that sense, not that my mom didn't work, but he had the 'office' high powered job, and I always thought I could do it.  I definitely am not there, but when I'm a business owner, it may be a different story lol

four\What is your favorite TV show at the moment? Once Upon a Time! Seriously! AMAZING show!

five\What is your greatest fear? anything and everything.

six\What is one thing you would want in your dream home? This is tough! I want a huge bathroom, walk in (super organized), closet, amazing kitchen! OH, no this is my number one thing. A porch.  A porch with a railing, chairs or swing...someplace to sit and have coffee, watch the sun set, talk, or just settle into the peace of God's world...

seven\I am borrowing this from a question I saw once, Is there a certain trend you wish you could pull off? What is it? This one is hard...I try to be my own, when it comes to trends... I tend to try them all at some point lol.  I do love the high wasted pant though.  I have really long legs, but no torso to balance it out, so they always look stupid on me.  

eight\ Why did you start your blog? I originally started to track running and fitness. That went out the window in about a week lol.  I just got into writing about life.  My thoughts, my feelings...It really has become an online journal, and a way to connect with other people and relate.  Makes me feel like I'm not the only one feeling a certain way, etc.

nine\If you could meet anyone, past or present, who would it be? Why? I want to meet my dad's dad.  He died the year I was born and I remember when I was growing up, my mom always said I was like him. She said we'd get along and I can imagine him being my best friend...

ten\Favorite vacation spot? Aruba! Hands down.  It is such an awesome place!

eleven\What are your feelings about macaroni and cheese? Random, but it is by far my favorite.  LOL I love it! still buy it at 26 and eat it probably one a week?! I like making homemade mac and cheese ;) Like Outback style! Delicious!

[my questions to you]

one\ Is there a word you don't like? 
two\ If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what would it be?
three\ What is your favorite drink?
four\ What would you name the autobiography of your life?
five\ What story does your family always tell about you?
six\ What's your favorite season?
seven\ What would your ideal job be? 
eight\ What's one thing you regret? Do you have regrets?
nine\ What is your favorite food?
ten\ Are you a morning or night person?
eleven\ If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
