Tag your it!

Prepare yourself this will be a longer post than usual,
BUT you will learn quite a few new things about me along the way, 
so grab a coffee and read on.

We are playing a game of tag! And I am It!
I was tagged by the fabulous Amy of Love on High Heat (formally known as Madamyt). She is a riot! Go check out her blog, she makes amazing food and her stories are usually good for a laugh.
Thanks Amy for passing on the fun!

Here Are 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 (this might be hard)  5. Go to their blog & and tell them that you've tagged them.

11 Random things about me....

1. I hate going shopping for jeans.
2. I take both cream and sugar in my coffee...and I have several cups a day.


3. I sometimes over analyze movies to the point of losing sleep.
4. I played Maria in grade 12 when my highschool put on the musical 
'The Sound of Music'

( No I was not formerly a nun-in-training .... but Maria Von Trapp was.)

5. If I could hire out a household job it would be cooking... I really don't like being in the kitchen, except for the odd baking day.

6. I usually have 5-10 lists going at the same time 
(grocery list, project list, to-do list, etc. etc.)
.... I heart lists ... I'm a nerd like that :) 

7. I bought a smash book and I love it! (Post coming soon.)

8. I sell Beauti Control.

9. I went to Bible college, which is where I met my hubs.

10. I just recently accepted that my Bro-in-law looks like Ryan Gosling due to this picture from this site.

11. I'm not an ice cream person.

Here are my Q's from Amy:

1. If you had just won 1 Million Bucks... what would be the first thing you would buy? I'm sure I would want to purchase something big, but right now I would really love a shopping spree on a whole bunch of smaller items (clothes, shoes, bags, crafting supplies, etc.)

2.Mac or HP? Mac

3.You're deserted on an island... list your 3 must haves! A huge blanket, Bible, and a box of matches....

4.Do you love to ride Roller coasters? Nope

5.What is the first thing you do when you walk through the door from work/school? Well since I'm a stay-at-home-mom I'll say the first thing I do after the kids go to bed (similar to the end of a work/school day) and that is: sit down and relax or get at some craftin'

6.Describe your favourite Saturday. Any saturday spent at home with my little family are usually pretty awesome....sleeping in would be the cherry on top!

7.What is your favourite Coffee from Starbucks? I'm going to tweak this and say my favorite drink...which is a Chai Tea Latte .... ah-mazing!

8.Beach Vacation or Mountain Getaway? I can not pass-up a day at the beach relaxing, and with kids it would definitely be more enjoyable in my opinion.

9.Would you rather wash or dry the dishes? Depends where I'm doing dishes, if I'm familiar with where the dishes go I prefer drying but if I don't I prefer to wash.

10.The one thing in your fridge/pantry that is always stocked? Popcorn

(that's 2 popcorn makers, a popcorn bowl full of seasonings, and 2 popcorn kernel containers!)

11.Would you rather have a high-rise penthouse in an amazing city or a country cottage in a quiet small town?  a country cottage, I'm a smalltown girl, I don't think I could handle the big city for too long

And Tag, your it!

Here are my Q's for you:

If you could be anyone for a day who would you be?
If you could visit anywhere in the world where would you go?
What was your most memorable birthday?
Do you have any siblings?
What household job is your least favorite?
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Give one word that you would use to describe yourself.
What's your favorite movie of all time?
Iphone or Blackberry?
Did you do anything special for Valentine's day?
When did you start your blog?

I look forward to seeing everyone's answers :)

That was fun! Thanks Amy!
