TAG - you're it!

Three lovely bloggers Ashlee, Brittan and Ashley tagged me in the blogger game! I'm sure y'all have seen this floating around, right?

{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!

Okay, so let's see if I can think of 11 fun facts about myself..1. When using the restroom in public, I will always and ONLY use the first stall, closest to the door. Statistics show that this stall has the least germs because it's rarely used.


2. Clearly I'm a bit of a germophobe. I wash my hands A LOT, and sometimes I'll wash them and 10 minutes later even if I haven't touched anything, I feel the urge to wash them again. I can not stand for my hands to feel even the slightest bit dirty.

3. I don't own a pair of plain white socks. I do however own a ton of socks with funky designs on them. And, I only wear socks at work. Otherwise, I'm usually in flip flops.

4. I just love to cook and bake. It is a hidden dream of mine to one day own a bakery of my own.

5. One thing that drives me crazy is when time is left on the microwave. Is it that hard to either let it finish the time you typed in? Or, if you stop it before, all you've gotta do is press clear. Drives me nuts!

6. I am an impulse spender. When I see something that I want, if I have the money on me, I will get it without even thinking about what I actually need to use that money for. One of my worst habits.

7. I am only 4'10 1/2" which means I'm very close to being considered a legal midget, which also means I'm incredibly adorable.

8. I competed in spelling bees all throughout elementary school & junior high school. Need help on a word? I can probably spell it for you! ;)

9. I hit puberty way before any of my friends did in school, which meant I was embarrassed by my boobs. This lead me to walk around hunched over so no one could see them. FAIL.

10. Not much makes me more mad than being interrupted when I'm talking. I feel like that is only something children do, so it really irks me when an adult does it.

11. My wine rack in my kitchen is never empty. Did you expect any less of me? ;)

Now, without further adieu, the questions!


Ashlee's questions:
{ONE}
What is your most embarrassing moment?
I am TOO embarrassed to admit to the MOST embarrassing one. So, I'll just talk about the second most embarrassing thing to happen to me. ;) In high school, I worked at Sonic. One night, at the end of my shift, I was doing dishes in the back. One of my co-workers came and "pants-ed" me, annnd I wasn't wearing any underwear. I do not know why, but I wasn't. Silly me, turns completely around to face the kitchen, where all the cooks were, to pull my pants back up. I about DIED.

{TWO} Favorite thing in your closet?
I'm going to have to go with my True Religion jeans. They are ridiculously comfortable, and I love that I can dress them up or wear them with a t-shirt. I'm also quite fond of my dress collection. :)

{THREE} Favorite blog post?
Just one? I have many, let's see. I told y'all
how I met my boyfriend. I wrote a tribute to my dog brother. Annnd, I professed my undying love for Paula Deen.

{FOUR} If you could pick any car to have, what would it be?
Honestly, right now at this moment.. I REALLY badly want a Honda CR-V. I know that most people would say something outrageous like a Lamborghini or a Ferrari, but I'm a simple girl who just wants a classy SUV in her life.

{FIVE} One store that you can't go a week without shopping at?
Target. I have one within walking distance from my apartment, and I go there 3 times a week, at minimum. They have everything, and it's safe to say that I'm a little bit addicted. ;)

{SIX} What is your favorite kitchen tool?
It's a toss up between my fabulous red blender or my coffee maker. I'd die without that thing.

{SEVEN} If you had to wear one color for a month what color would you choose?
I should say a fun, bold color, but in all reality, it'd probably be black. If you look in my closet, almost everything is black, navy or dark gray. I just gravitate to those colors when I shop, I guess.

{EIGHT} What is your least favorite thing about flying?
Turbulence and layovers. Both equally suck.

{NINE} What is your current magazine of choice?
Gotta love People. Has all of the up to date celeb gossip, and it's a magazine that I feel I can trust the news that it offers. Plus, I'm obsessed with the crossword puzzles in the back.

{TEN} Do you follow celebrities on Twitter? If so, who is your favorite?
I follow a couple, but not a lot because they tend to only retweet people who are obsessed with them. That's annoying when my timeline is blown up with retweets!

{ELEVEN} What is your least favorite chore?
Mopping. I hate it, and to tell you the truth, I don't remember the last time I did it. Oops!

Brittan's questions:
{ONE}
What are your favorite boy and girl names?

Y'all don't be stealing these.. ;) For a girl: Jensen and for a boy: Braxen

{TWO} What is your dream job?
Pediatrician, but that's not gonna happen. So how about an RN or an NP?

{THREE} Do you use Twitter? If not, what the heck not? :)
Uh yeah I do. Self proclaimed addict!

{FOUR} If you could visit anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
Europe. More specifically, Italy. I want to experience what my great grandparents did, and the amazing food and wine? Count me in!

{FIVE} Are you a mac or a PC?
A PC for now, but I'm hoping to invest in a macbook soon! :)

{SIX} How many speeding tickets have you gotten?
Just two. Which is two too many, in my opinion.

{SEVEN} Do you prefer the mountains or the beach?
The beach, for sure. I love the water and laying in the sun!

{EIGHT} What is your favorite snack?
Popcorn!!! Also, triscuits topped with cheese and pepperoni.

{NINE} What's your ideal date night?
How about I tell y'all typical Friday date night? We go to Buffalo Wild Wings and play trivia together. Then we come home, cuddle on the couch and watch a movie on Netflix. Perfection :)

{TEN} What's your favorite thing about blogging?
Definitely the friends I've made. I've never felt close to people I've never met before, but blogging is totally different. It doesn't even feel like I've never met y'all. :)

{ELEVEN} What do you do during your "me time"?
Read, paint my nails, treat myself to a pedi, or clean my apartment.

Ashley's questions:
{ONE}
Where is your dream vacation?

See above - Europe! :)

{TWO} What is your favorite blog?
There's no way I can pick just one. I love all of the blogs that I follow. You're all my favorites. :)

{THREE} What is your favorite movie?
All time fave movie is The Breakfast Club. Such a classic!

{FOUR} What is your favorite book?
Either The Great Gatsby or Catcher in the Rye. LOVE.

{FIVE} If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
Physically - my teeth/smile. Mentally/emotionally - my anxiety.

{SIX} Do you have any pets? If so, what are they and what are their names?
I don't myself, no. BUT parents and sister do. My dad has a dog named Roxy, my sister has a dog named Hallie and 2 hamsters named Dallas and Dublin, and my mom and her boyfriend have a dog named Precious and a cat named Smudge. It's a zoo, all those animals! :)

{SEVEN} What is your favorite TV show?
Will & Grace, Friends, Grey's Anatomy and Nip/Tuck

{EIGHT} What is your absolute dream job?
See above - pediatrician. But I'll settle for a job as an RN in pediatrics instead. :)

{NINE} What store could you spend hours or more in?
Target, which happens on a weekly basis.

{TEN} Are you a morning person or night owl?
A little of both. I'm not a person who can fall asleep early, unless I'm sick, so I'm a night owl in that spectrum. And I don't like waking up early, but once I'm up and productive, I'm glad I'm up. Plus, sleeping in also makes the day go by so fast and I hate that.

{ELEVEN} What is your favorite skin care or make up product?
Skin care - Clinique moisturizer. The stuff is heaven sent. Make-up - MAC Graphblack Eyeliner.

Oh my gosh, someone PANTSED you?! I'd be in prison right now if I were you, haha.

Trish said...

I am TOTALLY one of the evil people who leaves time on the microwave. My boyfriend hates it. I'll hear him in the kitchen yell out numbers. "TWENNNTYYYY SEVENNNNNN" and then I'll hear the microwave beep. That's his passive aggressive way of saying "You left 27 freaking seconds on the microwave you she-devil."

I'm trying to reform myself though. It's not going well so far :)

A Babbling Brunette said...

I love all of your answers! I feel like we could be twins! #5 cracks me up! I always clear it if I see the numbers still on there!

Jessica said...
