I Got Tagged!


Sweet, talented Laura from Twirl tagged me to do this fun little game where y'all get to learn a bunch of things about me that you may otherwise never know.

Brace yourself.

But first, the rules!

1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
5. Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her.

1. What are you wearing right now?
It's Monday, it's raining and I have a stupid sinus headache. All of those things mean one thing...t-shirt, a hoodie and yoga pants. I guess that's technically 3 things, but you get the idea.

2. If you found $100 in your pocket what would you buy today?
I would reeeeaaallyyy love some new running clothes. Signing up for this 1/2 marathon has not helped our bank account

3. If your parting gift from the Zoo was an animal of your choice, which one would you take home with you?
Ideally, I would love to have a penguin. But seeing as how we don't live in an igloo, they may not be too feasible.  So realistically (because this is sure to happen) I'd have to go with a monkey. A little one, like Ross had in Friends.

4. Would you rather have a perpetual scab on the tip of your nose or perpetual eye goop? 
Eh...this question. I do not like it. Obviously, neither of these are desirable. I think I'll have to go with a scab on my nose because that at least may be able to camouflaged.   

5. What is the greatest lesson you learned from your mother?
To look people in the eye when you speak to them and to always say please and thank you. Come to find out those things really do matter!

6. If you were given a free Super Bowl ad what would you advertise?
This is a tough one, but honestly the first thing that came to mind was for an organization that does pet rescues/adoptions. I am a big supporter for rescuing/adopting over anything else when it comes to getting a dog or cat. Everyone and everything is entitled to a second chance.

7. What is your favorite photograph?
If you ask anyone that knows me, they will tell you that I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to taking pictures or having them taken. With that said, it would be almost impossible for me to pick my all time favorite photo, but this is hands down at the top of the list!

For our 3 year anniversary, we went to Chicago and my husband (who has been a lifelong Cubs fan) finally got to to see a game. Getting to share that with him was such a blessing! And they won!

8. If you could change your name, what name would you choose?
I really like my name and that fact that it isn't common, so I don't think I would change my name. Growing up though, I really liked the name Cassidy and would have loved my parents if they would've let me change it. 

9. What is the most best gift you ever received? 
I have a 3 things that I would place in this category:
1. My engagement ring
2. The Bible that my grandpa had with him during the war
3. My great-grandma's china

All of these things have so much meaning and emotion attached to them. They are all irreplaceable.

10. What one clothing item or accessory do you wish you could pull off?
Anything mustard colored! It's just not in my color pallet, but I think it's a great color on those that can pull it off.

11. If you had to decide which movie you would teleport into (because that is naturally how this would be possible), and live out for the rest of your life, which movie would you choose?
 Swiss Family Robinson circa 1960. My reason? Their house. Even as a kid, I realized just how awesome this thing was!
I remember falling in love with this house when I watched this movie many years ago and I still think about it! I could do without the dangerous stuff though!

Okay! My turn for 11 questions...

1. What is the one item you have to have in your fridge/pantry?
2. Is there a song that evokes an emotion/memory from you no matter what? (can be a happy, nostalgic, etc)
3. What do you feel is your biggest accomplishment to date? Could be personal or professional.
4. Would you rather go the rest of your life without ever watching your favorite show/movie or without reading your favorite book?
5. Skydiving or bungee jumping?
6. Where is the one place you want to go before you die?
7. If you had a book written about you and your life, what would you want the title to be?
8. What would you want your 15 minutes of fame to be for?
9. Is there a hobby or activity you did when you were younger that you've given up, but wish could start again?
10. What would be the hardest food to give up forever? (Mexican, Italian, cake, etc.)
11. If you could be amazing at one thing, what would you want it to be?

Love your Swiss Family Robinson answer! I had forgotten all about that place. But when I saw the photo, I remember wanting to live there too.
