11 Things

11 Things...

I've been seeing these pop up all over and I was tagged by Heather, so of course I'm going to play!

Here are the rules:

1. Post these rules
2. Post a photo of yourself and 11 random things
3. Answer the questions set for you in the original post
4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them
5. Go to their blog/twitter and tell them that you've tagged them.

11 Random Things:
 Me and Courtney <3 she took the photo of me below (I'm on the left)

1. My hair color is all natural. I used to dye my hair all the time. I recently stopped so that I can see when I start to go gray (true story) I'm 27 now and holding strong! But if bub continues to keep leaving his boots all over the apartment, hide his "car repair manuals" under the covers at the foot of my bed, thinks that cookies are an acceptable dinner meal & shooting me with nurf guns it might come sooner than later.

2. I MUST have "paper napkins" given to me at a restaurant while eating. I feel like wiping my hands on a "fabric" napkin does nothing for me.

3. Whenever I walk into any store I will always bee line it towards the back to the clearance section. Mama loves to save money.

4. I check to make sure I unplugged my flat iron at least 5 times before I leave the apartment. Its one of the few things I am absolutely OCD about. I will even stare at it for a good minute seeing it NOT plugged in, walk away and think "Ya know I bet you there is SOME WAY the flat iron magically got plugged in again…" then go back and check. Again.

5. Wanna know why my hair is super long? I will be donating it soon! I am letting my hair grow to Guinness world records lengths first so when I hack off the 9" my hair is still fairly long. The only awkward thing is when I get out of the shower my hair "tickles" my butt. It took me a while to figure out it was my hair and not a spider--by the way doing the "OMG THERE IS A SPIDER ON ME!" dance while naked and wet is not fun. You know what dance I'm talking about.

6. I think about death way more than the average person should. Let me clarify, I am not suicidal! I meant that I think about what happens "after you die" way too much. It freaks me out and gives me heart palpitations.

7. I write neater on a diagonal then on a straight line

8. One year bub and I had a hard time figuring out what to be for halloween. This of course led to an argument (duh). In a fit of fury and frustration I yelled "YA KNOW WHAT?! LETS BE PETER PAN AND TINKERBELL! CEPT I'LL BE PETER PAN AND YOU CAN BE TINKERBELL!" it was the best couples costume ever.

9. I dont tan. I have never been tan. I don't know what I would look like with a tan, and thats kinda sad to me. Worst.Italian.Ever.

10. My eyes are made out of 3 colors. They are outlined in gray, green is the main color with flecks of brown.

11. I miss the old "facebook" where it wasn't intrusive. I thought it was a nice way for people to keep in touch but STILL talk to each other to know what is going on in their lives. I worry facebook for the younger generation is going to kill them of any and all social skills. I am SO HAPPY it was not around while I was in high school, it first came out when I was in college but like I said back then it was minimal and no where near how it is today (annnnd my first "WHEN I WAS YOUR AGE" Moment is sponsored by ginkgo)

And.. the 11 questions Heather wants me to answer:
1- Sweet or Sour? how bout both because I order the sweet and sour chicken at chinese food places! (Bada Bum!) (yeah, I just "drum beat" myself) (im not proud of this)

2- What is your favorite kind of music? Going to be totally honest here, I'm not really a "music" person. I'll listen to the pop station or country station but I dont keep up with the newest thang. Although LMFAO's "sexy and I know it" is fun to "wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle" to

3- Where do you see yourself personally in 5 years? In 5 years I hope to at least be engaged (lord willing) have a pup named Hercules, make Yellow Heart Art my only source of income, be a home owner, and finally figure out how to plant seedless watermelon.

4- Do you know any other languages besides english? I know the language of the sailor. AKA I have a potty mouth.

5- What is your biggest pet peeve of all time? People who are always late. I mean COME ON *always* late? I always tell those people to meet me 1/2 hour earlier than planned so they come "on time"

6- Have you ever been in a fight and thrown something made of glass at someone, like they do in the movies? HA! LOVE this question! And no, I haven't. The closest thing I have come to this was one time in my "clubbing" days (yes, I live on Long Island, its what we did for fun in college ok?? JUDGE ME!) I was "seeing" this guy who was a few years older than me (that's all you're getting a "few" years ha!) My friend Heather was seeing his Friend at the time too, so it worked out perfectly whenever me and Heather wanted to go to the club to see this guy and his friend. The 4 of us planned to meet up at the club, but the 2 dudes were COMPLETELY ignoring heather and I. They made no effort to talk to us the entire night. When I found "my dude" huddled between 4 tall gorgeous blondes I took  my dumpy 5' 3" self over there, got in the center of the huddle, got in his face and said "DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND TAKE MY NUMBER OUT OF YOUR PHONE" I then threw a drink at him and walked away. Best moment ever.

7- Reincarnation: What do you come back as? I want to come back as a successful boy band member. I want to know what it feels like to have women flock all over me and be a bagillionare for singing songs about sharing ice cream and going to the mall.

look at me rocking out, total boy band member status right there. Also? I own at guitar hero. Ok, thats a lie.

8- If you could go back to any age you were and live it again, how old would you be & why? HANDS DOWN 22. You were past that exciting "WOOOO I'm 21!" Phase, and you were still in college and kind of an "adult" but not totally one quite yet. I frekkin LOVED IT. I was taking all graphic design and art classes at the time so my entire day consisted of creating things FOR GRADES (uhhh AWESOME) during "breaks" between classes my friend Erin and I would go back to her dorm room and make music videos. I also worked part time at Abercrombie and used my discount to buy sweet clothes. Damn, life was awesome.

9- Cats or Dogs? dogs hands down. I get freaked out by the way cats stare at me, they look like their plotting the best way to kill me while i'm sleeping or something.

10- Have any guilty pleasures? I watch family guy marathons on TBS. I know I know you can judge me, this time I totally deserve it.

I tag Erika, Julie Ann, Ilene, Amy and Caroline! (& anyone else that wants to play!)

To answer these questions-

1. If you could have any super power what would it be and why?
2. If you HAD to quit your job (or change your college major) and you HAD to pick a different career path what would you do?
3. What was your most embarrassing moment
4. It's 2012, when you were younger how did you think the world would be by now?
5. What is a fear you are trying to work on?
6. Do you remember POGs and if so HOW the HECK did you play??
7. What talent do you wish you had but lack skills in? (For example I do not have an athletic bone in my body, when I tried to ski I totally ate snow)
8. What store can you max out your credit card in?
9. What was your favorite childhood toy or activity?
10. If you could have a 2nd house anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

    The spider dance literally made me laugh so loud that my co-worker stared at me like I had lost my mind. haha!! So funny...and yes, I totally do that! When I spot one on the wall I do this embarassing squeak and hop away on one foot(because that helps,right?) and go in search of my bug killing ninja (husband)
