Tagged by Jill--11 things

So Jill at Jill's World tagged me.  There are some rules.  Let's see how well I do with the rules.
  1. Post these rules.
  2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
  3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post.
  4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
  5. Go to their blog and tell them that you've tagged them.
  6. No stuff in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you are reading this."  Legitimately tag 11 people!!
OK so #1, done.
#2 eleven random things about myself:
  • I have dexterous toes, I can pick up just about anything with them.  I haven't tried but I could probably write with them.
  • I really like to play some of the silly games on Facebook.
  • I like the color green.
  • I like cats.
  • I'm less than vigilant about antibacterial stuff.  I figure my immune system needs something to do.
  • I don't do well with caffeine.  It seems to want my company in the middle of the night.
  • I am an avid reader, but looking at the bookshelves in my home would confuse most people, I have eclectic interests.
  • I hate potty training.  The end result is desirable but getting there, not so much. 
  • I love living near the mountains, but love to visit the ocean.
  • I am a small town girl at heart.  Just not too small.
  • I like Scooby Doo almost as much as my boys do.
  1. What is your one promise to yourself, or resolution for 2012?  I just posted these but the main one would be to do something for myself--healthwise, but also for my mind and soul.
  2. If you could be anybody in the world – celebrity, rock star, author, ANYONE – who would you be?  This one is tough, since I don't do the limelight very well, I think I'd have to go with an author, maybe Nora Roberts?
  3. What is your favorite recipe to make?  (Please share how to make it, or link it up if it’s somewhere on the Internet!)  My favorite recipe to make is Sausage and Peppers with noodles.  Boil water and cook spaghetti noodles(enough for the number you are serving).  Meanwhile, take one package of Italian Sausage and remove the casings and break up and brown in a sauce pan.  Chop green, red, orange or yellow peppers (we use mostly green, they're cheaper) into bite sized pieces.  When sausage is evenly cooked, drain excess fat and add the peppers.  Cook until peppers reach desired doneness (we like them crisp tender, but you can cook them more if that's what you like).  Drain noodles and add to sauce pan and serve mixture of noodles, sausage and peppers.  An easy tasty dinner, and it reheats well too.
  4. Do you have a sport that you love to watch?  If so, what is it and what’s your favorite team?  We are not much for sports in our house.  We watch the Superbowl and root for who ever we like better.  We do like to watch the Olympics, but really not big sports fans here.
  5. If you could have the ability to expertly play any instrument in the world, what would you choose to play?  The saxophone.
  6. Why did you start blogging?  To meet other people.  I like to write and finding other people with interests that are similar to mine is difficult in my home town.  I started blogging as an outlet and have met some fabulous people.
  7. If you knew you could only have one last meal, what would you choose to eat?  Your last supper, so to speak?  Surf and turf--Lobster and rib eye steak. With an artichoke and a fluffy baked potato.  And cheesecake for dessert.
  8. Who is your hero, and why?  I'm not sure I have a specific hero.  In general I feel anyone who has served our country in the armed forces is a hero.
  9. If you could bring back any old TV show that no longer airs, which one would you bring back?  I'd have to say M*A*S*H.  I love the show growing up and love the DVDs I have now.
  10. You’re a superhero.  What’s your power?  To be in two places at once.
  11. Team Edward, Team Jacob, or screw that silly vampire crap?  I have to go with option three, sort of.  I like reading about vampires, but I like my vampires all grown up.
Now for #4:
  1. Do you have a nickname?
  2. What is something you've always wanted to do, but never mustered up the courage to try?
  3. What did you want to be when you grew up?  Did you go through with it?
  4. Would you rather have a housekeeper or unlimited spa services?
  5. Do you collect anything?
  6. How did you name your blog?
  7. What is the best compliment you have ever received?
  8. What was your "Oh no, I'm turning into my mom/dad" moment?
  9. What is your quirkiest habit?
  10. Favorite 80s movie?
  11. Name one thing you are proud you have accomplished.

  1. I feel all kinds of famous! How cool to be nominated!! I'll work on this over the weekend. Wish me luck!!!

    And THANK YOU! xoxo

  2. HOW in the heck did you get so lucky to live with 3 dudes and NOT have them be into sports??
    I have to think on this so I can do it justice...:)

  3. Thanks for the nomination! I was having a bit of Bloggers Block and this helps!

    Ha, I have dexterous toes too. It's funny-I think I'm more coordinated with my toes sometimes than my fingers!
    I'm with you on the antibacterial stuff. I think antibacterial products are responsible for super bugs and illnesses that are immune to our drugs.

    I'm dreading potty training when I become a mommy. I have heard nothing but bad things!

  4. Alright, i did it. That was hard!

  5. I'm not so sure I can handle the pressure of coming up with 11 new questions. I'll do my best but please don't hate me if I can't.I of course have a softball tournament this weekend and will be going non stop, but I promise to try.



I love to get comments! They make my heart go pitter-pat! Go on comment--I'll do my best to go give your blog some love too!
