I've Been Tagged! -- Twice!

I'm sure almost all of you have seen the tagging that has been going around. Never did I think I would be tagged, but I've been tagged twice! Thank you so much to Emily over at The Best Is Yet To Come and Jessica over at Waking, Believing, Running.

The Rules
1-- You must post the rules.
2 -- Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3 -- Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, 
and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
4 -- Tag eleven people and link them on your post
5 -- Let them know you've tagged them!

11 Facts About ME

1 - I am bad at coming up with things about myself. Which is weird because I know me best!

2 - I sometimes struggle to get up and run in the morning but almost always feel better once I do. Plus, there is nothing more relaxing than the beach in the morning. And I know I will miss my morning routine once I start working. 

3 - I don't have time for all of the social networking internet stuff (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Blogging). I have a Twitter account but don't tweet, Facebook has been pushed to the side since blogging and once I get a job I don't know how I will keep up with blogging! Its all just too much!

4 - I grew up on the Great Lakes and now I live on the Pacific Ocean. I am a water person and have to live by water. I can't not live where I am landlocked. Which was one of the main issues with me and Colorado. 

5 - I am a mommy's girl. She is my best friend. I fear the day I lose her and don't know how I will live without her. 

6 - I never understood the concept of a "ticking clock" until I turned 28 without a ring on my finger. Now my ticking clock is loud and I wonder if I will ever get married and have kids. 

7 - One of my biggest fears is taking so long to get married that my dad won't be around to walk me down the isle or my parents won't be around for me to make them grandparents. Let's get a move on M!! 

8 - I'm trying to become a more positive person. I've learned that no matter how "bad" things may be in life at a given time, I am a lucky person and a lot of people have things worse. As long as my parents are around and healthy, thats all that really matters in the end.

9 - Family is my life. I have the smallest family ever (mom, dad, grama) and they live across the country from me. I don't know what I am doing so far away anymore!

10 - I'd rather day drink or go out for happy hour over going out at night.

11 - I love the Ellen DeGeneres show! Ellen is such an amazing person. 

Whew, the hard part is over! On to the questions.

11 Questions From Jessica

1 - What's your favorite TV show?
I'm guilty of being obsessed with the new 90210 Tuesday nights on the WB. Another new favorite is Hart of Dixie.

2 - What is the one thing you could never live without?
I couldn't live without my mom. Material item-wise? I couldn't live without having a car. I don't realize how important it is until one day its not there. And wheels can take you anywhere and everywhere in life.

3 - If you had to pick one restaurant that you had to eat at for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Cafe Coyote in Old Town San Diego. I could eat there at least once a week and if I had to for the rest of my life I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be a problem. Although I should think about picking a place with more of a variety if we are talking life here.

4 - What is your favorite song?
Its always hard to pick just one favorite song. I'd say Transatlanticism by Death Cab For Cutie.

5 - What is your least favorite food?
I like a lot of things but I guess the first thing that would come to mind that I don't like is muscles, like oysters.

6 - Do you have a favorite game? If so, what?
Loaded Questions. I've only played it once and its only fun with a lot of people. And I can NEVER think of the name of that game when I try!!

7 - What is your favorite scent?
Salt air, fresh cut grass, Coppertone suntan lotion and the smell of grilled food.

8 - What is your greatest accomplishment?
The savings account I built in Colorado. It makes me sick to have to live off of it now, not having a job, instead of keeping it for a house someday. :(

9 - If you could get plastic surgery at no cost, would you?
Yes! On my feet of all places, I have wide feet and can't wear cute flats or heels. 

10 - What's your dream vacation?
I love tropical places but I've always wanted to go to Europe. Its a tie between Bora Bora and Europe, mainly Italy. 

11 - What is your favorite outfit accessory?
I'm not too fashionable, my favorite accessories are rings, necklaces and bracelets. If I had to pick only one I'd say rings.

11 Questions From Emily

1 - If you could live anywhere, where would it be & why? 
Tough one. I already live on the beach, and thats where I'd want to live. I love the ocean and there's nothing like being able to look at it everyday. I also love warm winters :) I'd just need my mom to live where I am and I'd be set.

2 - You just got a big bonus at work but you can't spend it on something practical...what do you splurge on?
A 50 foot boat. I grew up boating and boating is my life. I don't know what I'd do without a boat in my life and hope to have enough money someday to have my own.

3 - What's your guilty pleasure?
Lately its been blogging!

4 - What's your biggest pet peeve?
I can't stand dog owners who don't pick up after their dog. Its not fun to have dog crap smeared on the boardwalk when I run. Also, I hate guys who blow snot rockets as they run, bike or swim. Just suck it up. 

5 - What's one amazing makeup tip you'd share?
I'm awful when it comes to makeup. I don't think I have any tips to share.

6 - Name one thing that you couldn't live without?
Again, my mom or having a car.

7 - What's your favorite blog post?
Well my blog is pretty young. I guess I'd say my favorite post is All About Me And The Story Of We because it gives my whole background of me, where I've come from, where I've been and how M and I became "us".

8 - What's your favorite recipe?
I have a lot of favorite recipes. Right now I guess I'd say my mom's chicken enchiladas because I've been thinking about them and might attempt to make them this weekend. 

9 - What single store could you absolutely not live without?
Gosh, I've been living without a lot of my favorite stores lately because I have no money to spend. Practical me would say Super Target because they have all of the essentials and groceries. 

10 - What is your favorite movie quote?
I'm terrible at remembering movie quotes. I'm sure it would be something from Dumb and Dumber or Wedding Crashers though.

11 - What made you start your blog?
The short version - in one word - unemployment. I've been reading a select few blogs for a couple years, tried to start my own a year ago and time got the best of me, so here I am with some time on my hands trying it out again!

Wow -- that was long. And if you're still reading, thank you for wanting to know more about me! In order to keep it shorter, instead of coming up with questions and tagging, if you are reading and 
want to be tagged, just take some questions from above and have at it!

I'm definitely trying to be more positive also!

Jessica said...

Yay! I love getting to know bloggers through these little surveys. Oh, and I guess I'll have to try that restaurant in Old Town. ;)

I found it hard to come up with facts about myself as well! I also never understood the whole ticking time clock...until I really wanted to have a baby and have been trying for a year. I feel like that damn clock just gets louder and louder!
