Blogger Games Can Be Fun! I've Been Tagged, Too!

While I was away, the fabulous Mandy from Mommy Musings tagged me in a fun little blogger game. I like learning random facts about other bloggers, so I thought I'd play along! 

The Rules
1. You must post the rules (and link up who tagged you)
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 however many people you want
5. Let them know you've tagged them!

11 Fun Facts About Me
  1. I am the oldest of four children; I have two younger sisters and my 'baby' brother!
  2. I still eat mac n' cheese. From a box. I'm not proud of it.
  3. Speaking of food, I looooove vegetables. I could eat an entire meal full of them. Maybe I should consider doing that more often?
  4. I met B in college, but we didn't start dating until about 6 months after we graduated back in 2006.
  5. I'm a HUGE NY Jets fan (go ahead and judge), and I have been since long before they became what I would call 'mainstream.'
  6. I think I may be a shopaholic. There are very few times that I enter a mall (or a Target for that matter) without buying myself a new article of clothing. This clearly needs to stop.
  7. I love to cook, but hate to grocery shop. Is that weird?
  8. I am a clean person, borderline OCD about some things. I rarely ever go to bed without washing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen, and there have been many times when that 10-15 minutes of cleaning has caused me to be late for things like work and lunch dates! It's another bad habit I have!
  9. Have I mentioned that I love TV? Well, in case you're new here, I watch almost any ABC show, and a fistful of other reality TV nonsense, and I love it.
  10. I tell myself that I love to work out, but honestly? I really don't at all. I love the way I feel after I work out, but getting myself to do it is like pulling teeth.
  11. I have wanted to be a stay-at-home-Mommy for a long as I can remember. Now that I married my best friend, the idea of having babies is even more exciting, but it's also much scarier because it's so real now!
My Eleven Questions from Mandy
  1. How many kids do you want? My minimum is three, max is four, but I think I'll have to wait and see how I feel once I start having them!
  2. Where is your favorite place to vacation? I absolutely adore Hilton Head Island, SC, but who doesn't love an all inclusive resort some place tropical?!
  3. What time do you go to bed every night? B likes to be in bed by 10, but now that I make my own schedule, I could easily stay up til midnight every night. On average, I'd say 10:30-11ish?
  4. What is your favorite book? Gosh this is a toughy. I loved the Twilight series and a few Jodi Picoult books. Right now I'm super excited to start reading The Hunger Games trilogy!!
  5. Where do you live? {you can just put your state or region}North Jersey girl transplanted to Maryland :o)
  6. What show could you watch over and over again? The original 90210, without a doubt. I also love watching One Tree Hill reruns!
  7. What is your favorite holiday and why? Definitely, definitely Christmas for so many reasons, but mainly because the memories that I have of Christmas growing up are the fondest memories I have, and I can't wait to build new ones with my family!
  8. What is your favorite brand of clothing? I shop at the JCrew outlet often and I love their threads, but you can also often catch me sporting outfits from Forever 21 and Target. I love a thrifty shopper!
  9. What is your favorite quote? "Live like there's no tomorrow, love extravagantly, lead a life to be followed, goodby ordinary .." ~Mercy Me
  10. Where do you want to retire? Would love to retire at the beach somewhere, but I don't have a super specific place in mind at the moment.
  11. Who will you be cheering for in the Superbowl?? The NY GIANTS!! In my world, it's always "Anyone but the Patriots!!"

Whew. It's pretty hard coming up with 11 random things about yourself in combination with the answers to eleven random questions! What are my eleven questions for you?
  1. What is your favorite season?
  2. What is your favorite place to vacation?
  3. What is your favorite meal to cook?
  4. What are you most afraid of?
  5. What is your favorite sport?
  6. Who do you consider to be your 'best friend?'
  7. Where did you grow up?
  8. What college did you attend?
  9. Do you have any pets?
  10. What does your typical Sunday morning look like?
  11. Which would you choose: Chipotle or Qdoba?! (Sorry, I've got burrito on the brain :o))
There you have it! Although this was a bit of a challenge, it was also a ton of fun! I hope I didn't bore you to death yet!!
