Eleven Things

I was tagged by the lovely Katie at Love, Lattes & Lullabies! If you don't already follow her, you should. Get on that.  Smiley

1. Post the rules
2. Post a photo of yourself & 11 random things.
3. Answer the questions set for you in the original post.
4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and tell them that you've tagged them.




My 11 random facts:

1. I hate citrus. Oranges, grapefruit, lemon, lime, all of them.

2.  prefer to be barefoot. I have nothing against shoes, I have a few pair of heels that I adore. But given the choice, I'd go without more often than not.

3. I adore traveling. I am totally at home in an airport, on a plane and in hotels. I even love long road trips. Well, I might not now that we have a little one to deal with. We'll find out soon enough.

4. I'm a computer nerd. I don't game, but I spend way too much time on the computer. Blogging, Pinterest & forums are my downfalls.

5. I love snow & snowboarding but I hate winter. It's the cold. I can't stand being cold.

6. I LOVE our pellet stove. It gives off plenty of heat so we save on oil and it makes the living room so comfy & cozy.

7. I don't want any more animals. Doug thinks he wants another cat down the road. We'll deal with it later.

8. I have all fake plants except one. It's an aloe plant and I don't know how I not only haven't killed it, but it's thriving. I'm not good with plants. We'll leave it at that.

9. I'm easily irritated at things like rudeness. It takes very little effort to be polite and it makes you a better person.

10. I love being crafty. I love being able to say "I made this". Of course, that's assuming it care out good. If not, I try again. Sometimes.

11. I am addicted to Pinterest. My only consolation is that I am actually doing some of the things I've pinned. Go me.      


Questions from Katie:

1. What's your favorite breakfast food? Crepes. Love them and now I finally have a good pan for them so I can make them whenever I want. Luckily, Doug & Keira love them, too.

2. What's playing on your iPod right now? At the moment, I'm listening to the beautiful silence of naptime. Yesterday, I was listening to Zac Brown Band and Frank Sinatra.

3. What are you wearing right now? Jeans & a t-shirt. I had shoes at one point but I'm not sure where they are now.

4. What is your biggest fear? Failure. Well, that and drowning. Though, they could be considered the same thing.

5. Chocolate or vanilla? Depends totally on my mood. Sometimes, I want one or the other and sometimes, I want both.

6. If you could have dinner with one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be? What would you say to them or ask them? I've honestly never been able to answer this question. I'd rather have dinner with my husband than someone 'famous'.

7. What's the most rewarding thing about your chosen profession? Being able to spend time with Keira and watch her grow and learn new things.

8. Name three good things that happened to you this week. I made a really big decision and I feel great about it. I made some really good headway in our home. I discovered I had more ambition than I realized.

9. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? My self-doubt. I usually will begin something with a lot of ambition & faith. Then I start to wonder if I'm doing it right or a million other things.

10. You get a free roundtrip ticket to go anywhere in the world. Where do you go? New Zealand. It's beautiful and I've always wanted to go, but the tickets are so expensive.

11. If you could have one superpower, which one would you choose?  Telekenisis. I'll admit it, I'm lazy. I want the ability to clean up my house just by thinking it. Who wouldn't?
