I'm a playful type, and I don't mind the occasional tag, so here goes.
Here's how it works:
-Post these rules
-Post 11 random things about yourself
-Answer the questions set for you in their post.
-Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
-Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them.
My 11 Random Things:
1. I just updated my "Best of" page up above there. Go ahead. Check out some of the best of Pampers and Pinot!
2. I really like cheese.
3. I long for the ocean.
4. My least favorite time of day is 3-5 pm. Every day, I'd prefer to just skip it and get right to dinner.
5. I don't really have a sweet tooth. I did when I was pregnant.
6. I'm going to go to Target later to get some things and stuff.
7. I love listening to my music in the car really really loud. I have a problem with blowing out speakers. I'm totally that lady rolling up to the grocery store blasting my def tunes.
8. I have really vivid dreams every night. I have a few different homes around the world that I revisit in my dreams here and there. I try to play games with my dreams and think about what I want to dream about before I go to bed, and then I see if I dream about it. Most of the time I do. Sometimes I don't.
9. I'm afraid of the novel I'm writing. It's very ambitious. I don't know if I have it in me. But, I actually take that as a good sign that I'm on the right track.
10. My favorite game on my smart phone is Ant Smashers. I find it very satisfying.
I cannot decide between two things.
I would want to go back to a day with my grandma when I was young. We had been at the beach all day. After getting clean in the shower and having that sun-kissed, tired feeling, I would enjoy the smell of her home and the fresh air outside. She had big bird cages, a tree swing, a pool, and strawberry plants. I would curl up with her and enjoy just being with her.
Another time would be a weekend I lived in Iowa on a not-too-hot summer evening. My husband and I lived in the country. We would have friends come over, have a bonfire, watch the lightning bugs (man, I miss lightning bugs), and then laze about together the rest of the weekend. I would take long walks by myself down to Wolf Creek on a gravel road.
How many books do you think you have read (just for fun)?
There is absolutely no way I could determine a guess - thousands upon thousands!!! I have always been a big reader from an early age and am NEVER not in the middle of a book.
Are you a Mac or PC person?
PC, but it is not something I am passionate about. I don't really care. Just give me something to use, and I'll freaking use it.
Have you ever ridden a train?
Dark or milk chocolate?
Milk, I guess. Not really a chocolate crazy person. I know, I know, I'm a freak.
Running - Love it? or Hate it?
I WISH I could. Honestly. I enjoy exercising and do so regularly, but whenever I try to run, I have horrible, splitting pain throughout my calves. The idea of it appeals to me, but I stick to walking, dancing, strength training and Jillian Michael's type stuff.
What three foods could you never give up?
Cheese, bread products, and wine. Absolutely, wine is a food group. In my world.
What's a food you've never tried but would like to?
I'm adventurous with food and can't likely think of anything that I haven't tried that I would want to try. I was most disappointed by oysters. Thought I would like that, but just remembering the experience makes me want to throw up.
What length of socks do you prefer?
Ankle socks for working out; otherwise, I like socks up to my knees. So comfortable. But, I would NEVER wear them like that with exposed legs. There's a trend I do not like.
What was your favorite class in Jr. High or High School?
Nerd alert! Honors English classes. Always my fave.
Do you know a foreign language?
Double nerd alert! I took Japanese in high school because I was always up for a challenge and really enjoyed it! Of course, I don't remember much of it now, only a little.
What do you think is the funniest movie of all time?
What is your most frequent, daily worry?
Name one big adventure you would like to still accomplish.
What is your favorite weekend activity?
What could be a song on the soundtrack of your life?
When do you feel most energetic?
