11 Questions: Part 1

There is this little tag game going on in the blog world, and I was lucky enough to be 5 wonderful blog friends! I've been trying to figure out how to answer all of these questions, and I think I'll break it up into 2 posts. Thanks to these lovely ladies for tagging me:
Brittany from Blogging Out Loud
Emma from Legally Lovely
Laura from Twirl
Katie from Katie Lately
Sarah from Simply Sarah

The rules are:
List 11 random facts about yourself. Answer the questions provided to you. Come up with different questions, then tag 11 people to do it, too.

So in Part 1, I'll list my random facts and answer 2 sets of questions. Then I'll be back later with the rest!

1. I am not comfortable unless I sit indian-style. In the car, at restaurants, everywhere...probably my weirdest quirk!

2. I hate grape-flavored anything. When I was younger, I told people I was allergic to it just so I'd never have to eat it!

3. I'm watching Alvin and the Chipmunks as I write myself...and I'm not embarrassed by that at all. 

4. Coffee upsets my stomach, but I still drink it every day. I can't stop!

5. I played the piano when I was young and now wish I would have kept with it!

6. To this day, Gilmore Girls is still one of my all-time favorite shows.

7. I had 2 hamsters in college that I named Kitty and Puppy. (It was a sad ending...Puppy killed Kitty)

8. In high school, my best friends and I went dumpster-diving at Wendy's to collect 200 cups that we mailed in for free round-trip flights to New York! Thanks again, AirTran :)

9. In college, my goal was to become a wedding planner. I had an internship and made contacts, then I decided I didn't want to work complete opposite hours as Doug, so I dropped that plan. I still don't regret it! I like my weekends :)

10. I sleep in the Heisman pose. It's really weird but the only way I'm comfortable!

11. I had a really hard time thinking of these, so I asked Doug for help....first thing that came to his mind? That I make baby dinosaur noises. I have to say, it's spot. on.

Okay, now for Brittany's questions!
1. Which Disney princess is most like you?
I'd have to say Cinderella. I would love to be surrounded by singing animals! Plus, Gus Gus is the cutest thing ever.

2. What song do you have on repeat right now?
Taylor Swift's Enchanted

3. Who was your first crush?

John Champagne- my 'boyfriend' from 1st through 5th grade! We always went to the sock-hops together :)

4. Where do you see yourself in five years? Be honest.

Hopefully, with a baby in my arms!

5. Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? Why?

Weird...I was just thinking about this the other day! Losing my vision terrifies me, so I'd definitely choose to keep that. Plus, I know sign language so it'd be a much easier transition.

6. What scares you the most?

Not being able to have kids. Or losing a family member. Eeek.

7. When was the last time you cried?

During the previews before we saw New Year's Eve. I cried in 4 out of 5. Doug made fun of me, but 2 of them were The Vow and War Horse!

8. What three physical attributes do you find most attractive in a guy?

Smile, eyes, and build (they can't be skinnier than me!) haha

9. If you had unlimited money, which store would you visit first?

TARGET! I think that's the only store I would visit, too!

10. What is your guiltiest pleasure?

My favorite TV shows- Pretty Little Liars probably being the favorite!

11. If you could wake up tomorrow with a new talent, which would you choose?

I've always wished I could sing. I would love to have a voice like Martina McBride!

12. If you could have any exotic animal as a pet, which would you choose?

Well, as I recently posted, I've always wanted a pig. But a spider monkey is a close 2nd!

Emma's questions:

1. Are you a Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda, or Carrie?
I've thought about this one before, too :) I would say mostly Charlotte with a little bit of Carrie!

2. If you could go on a date with ONE Hollywood hunk, who would it be?
This one is actually hard! My biggest celebrity crush is John Corbett (Aidan from SATC) but he is about 30 years older than me, so that would be weird. Let's just go with Bradley Cooper :)

3. A plane just landed in front of your house. Where are you going on an impromptu vacay?
Europe! I'm dying to go back!

4. If you were on The Bachelorette, what over-the-top date would you plan?
I prefer pretty simple dates (dinner and a movie is PERFECT!) but I think it would be amazing to go to a movie premiere! 

5. If you could switch bodies with one person for a day, who would it be?
Reese Witherspoon! I love her.

6. What is your favorite book?
I can't decide on just one! Anything by Nicholas Sparks, the Twilight series, Redeeming Love, The Help...I can't decide!

7. What is your absolute dream job?
A stay-at-home mom...that may be lame, but it's what I've always dreamt of!

8. What are three words that you would use to describe yourself at 8am?
Groggy, grumpy, and disheveled. 

9. You're lost in the Amazon for a day. Who do you want with you, and what one item do you have?
Bear Grylls and a huge picnic basket full of food...I get grumpy when I'm hungry :)

10. Would you rather hitch a ride on the space shuttle, or get a brand new car of your choosing?
New car! Although I'm pretty happy with my 8 year old X-terra! 

11. What is your idea of a perfect Friday night?
Pizza, a movie, snuggled up on the couch with Doug and Maisy. Lucky for me, we do this most Fridays :)

12. What is one embarrassing fact about yourself that you would normally never blog about, but now you have to?
You WOULD do this to me, Emma! Going along with Brittany's peeing her in pants theme, I'll share my own. In high school, I was jogging to LA Fitness with 2 friends along a busy road. One of my friends tripped over a cable, flew in the air, and face planted...and I was laughing SO hard that I wasn't able to completely control myself. I think admitting this on here is even more embarrassing than it was!

And I think I'll end this post on that note :) Hopefully, this post was so long that y'all didn't even make it to the end! I'll be back Monday with the rest of the questions!

YAY! I am SOOO glad you responded!!

Hahaha...finally a big difference between us! I LOVE grape flavor!

OH NO! Puppy killed Kitty! That's awful!

I CANNOT believe you got free round-trip flights to New York! I would TOTALLY dumpster dive for that.

Every year, I post a Youtube video of precious Gus Gus saying, "Ha-ha-ha-happy BIRTHDAY!" on Jenn's facebook for her birthday. I love him.

A movie premiere date is such a great idea!

Hahaha...your embarrassing story sounds like something that would happen to me. Actually, it basically has.

...sorry for the novel. I want to respond to everything.

amylu said... Best Blogger Tips

Aw I'm so glad to hear the Xterra is still around! Question is... do you still have the pink throw pillows in the backseat?

ha remember that?!

Amanda said... Best Blogger Tips

Coffee makes me sick every day! But, like you, I still drink it every morning! My husband thinks I'm crazy!

Laura Rowe [twirl] said... Best Blogger Tips

HA! You got tagged by five people that is so fun. And that means you have to tag 55 :)

Love learning these fun things about you!

Megan said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh gosh, just more reasons that we are twins. I sit Indian style ALL the time!! Even sometimes when I'm driving on the interstate in cruise control and hubby freaks out! Haha! Anddddd I hate grape flavor and I used to play the piano, but quit. And regret it.

We are so meant to be bff. Now get on the same wavelength as us. ; )

Legally Lovely said... Best Blogger Tips

I am loving your responses and am happy you played along!

I can't believe you went dumpster diving for plane tickets! If they ran that promotion tomorrow, I would be diving too. That's awesome. I can't believe you wouldn't pick an over-the-top Bachelorette date! Alex and I play that game all the time, because we love hypothetical daydreamining.

A stay-at-home mom is up there on my dream job list too, but I doubt it will ever happen. Not with the loans I'm racking up!

Hope you had a great day!

Alex Byer said... Best Blogger Tips

I feel like I know so much more about you now! I love this and can't wait for the next set of questions :)

J and A said... Best Blogger Tips

Love this. I also sit indian style and sleep in the heisman!! So funny. And LOVE Talor swift. :)

Sarah @ Simply Sarah said... Best Blogger Tips

I love your answers! I would totally swap with Reese Witherspoon for one day. I love her!

Can't wait to see your answers tomorrow :)

jessica dukes said... Best Blogger Tips

for some reason when you said you had two hamsters, i thought you said two sisters...and i was really confused with their names and that they killed each other. man, what happens when you read fast. haha, well, thats not funny at all...but you know what i am saying! haha

and i am a new follower! i found you from hollie's link up! i love the title of your blog!


Elle Sees said... Best Blogger Tips

i sit that way too--even in restaurants!

Sar said... Best Blogger Tips

I think I'm more of a Charlotte with a little bit of Samantha (the non-slutty, super sassy part). I love that your biggest celebrity crush is John Corbett; it makes me laugh! It's sweet.

Love your blog! Following you from Holly's #FF!

Anna said... Best Blogger Tips

I enjoyed reading this post and getting to know you a little better.

I think being a stay-at-home is vastly under appreciated. It would be one of my dream jobs also. :)

Cole said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi! I'm a new follower from Hollie's #FF link-up. :-)

I have a similar story with my high school hamsters. Miss Piggy killed Kermit. It was tragic...

Sarah said... Best Blogger Tips

I don't blame you about the Gilmore Girls. I still make references to them today. I wish they would make a movie or like a later on wrap up episode. I still have SO many questions! I love that you watched Alvin and the Chipmunks by yourself, though! I'm watching the Princess Diaries 2 by myself right now too :)

Meghan said... Best Blogger Tips

That dumpster story is amazing! And I LOVE Gus Gus!!!

Unknown said... Best Blogger Tips

Allison said... Best Blogger Tips

I love you even more after reading these facts. :) Dumpster diving...go girl! No shame! And I saw one of your fav books is Redeeming Love! I looooove that book and have read it twice!

Ruth said... Best Blogger Tips

I sit Indian style almost everywhere too. I did it for the ACT in these big chairs in the library of MMI and it really weirded the boys out

Ashley said... Best Blogger Tips
