The Random 11

Lucky for you guys, Michelle tagged me a Random 11 post that has been circulating the blog world recently, and because I love all things random, yet list-like, I decided to play along! :)

The Random Eleven
The Rules:
  • Post these rules
  • Post 11 random things about yourself
  • Answer the questions set for you in their post
  • Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer
  • Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them
  • No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people!

11 Random Facts About Me:

1 - I was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around my neck 3 times. I think that explains some of my ditziness!

2 - I am addicted to any Real Housewives. ADDICTED. It's really sad. I will watch the same episode over and over and over again! GAHHH I love the drama. I can't help it. Except Atlanta. I do not watch Atlanta at all--they are too ghetto for me! 
And one Sunday last December, I met Paul and Adrienne from Beverly Hills! They were at our mall to promote Adrienne's new shoe line! 

3 - I moved from Michigan to Ohio when I was 14 and have never forgiven my parents. It has been very convenient during wedding planning when they don't want to spend money on stuff...."Remember that one time when you made me leave all of my friends in Michigan in the middle of my freshman year and I was so miserable?! Let's up our flower budget!" HAhahaha

4 - When I was little, all I ever ate was lima beans! I was a strange child. 

5 - I LOVE making lists! I make lists of lists of lists. Specifically, to-do lists. I currently have 3 to-do lists and 2 grocery lists on my phone; plus a school to-do list and a home to-do list on paper! Plus a wedding to-do list that has several sub-to-do lists to go along with it! 

6 - My brother and I were on TRL (remember that show?!) in 8th grade! It's kinda my claim to fame....

7 - I can't stand ranch dressing. It makes me nauseous

8 - Speaking of nausea, I have the worst motion sickness! It used to be not-so-bad, but now, if I am not in the front seat (and preferably, driving), I want to die the whole trip! For planes, I always pop a Dramamine and then I'm good to go because I'm asleep! :) 

9 - I am terrified of rodents. Mice, rats, hamsters, gerbils, you name it. Their tails sketch me out. And their beady eyes. 

10 - I don't put milk on my cereal. It gets too soggy. Travis doesn't either...when I found this out, I knew we were a match made in heaven! 

11 - If it is pink, preppy or looks expensive I either own it or want to immediately!

11 Questions from Michelle
  • What is your favorite vacation spot? I studied abroad in Spain summer after my junior year and I have wanted to go back so bad ever since! 
{Salamanca, where I studied!}

  • What are the 5 items you cannot live without? Definitely my phone, running shoes, water (I hate being dirty), makeup (can that count as 1 thing?), and chocolate! 
  • What are your top 3 favorite movies? Legally Blonde, Clueless, and Love Actually (I clearly like movies that make me feel smarter!)
  • Chocolate or Flowers? Chocolate alllll the way! 
  • What are you most proud of so far in your life? Obviously, I'm proud that I made it through high school and college and got a job; but most recently, I'm pretty proud of myself for running a half marathon! It was my first running race ever and I got 3rd place for my age group! 
  • What is favorite cocktail/drink of choice? Wine. Any type is acceptable except Chardonnay or reds. Polka Dot Reisling is my absolute fav, partially just because of the bottle!

  • Do you prefer the beach or the mountains? Beach, although the mountains are super romantic!
  • What's your guilty pleasure? Watching trashy TV shows (see above). 
  • What is your dream job?  If I wasn't a teacher, I would want to open up my own cupcake shop. My specialty would be red velvet cupcakes with Carolina blue frosting! Oh wait, that's our wedding cake....but its kinda my fav!
  • Ballet flats, boots, or heels? Ballet flats for sure! I live in my Tory Burch Revas!!!!

  • Would you rather run outside or on the treadmill? This is so funny, because before I started training for my half marathon, I hated to run outside! But now, I love it! The treadmill gets so boring! I also love it even more now that we are living out in the suburbs and there are so many more great places to run than when we were living downtown! 
11 Questions: Basically, I am super lazy, so if you want to do this, just use Michelle's questions! She thought of some good ones, so no need to reinvent the wheel! :)

Who I'm tagging: Anyone who is reading this! :) Feel free to tag yourself!!!

  1. So glad you participated! I love learning more about my blog friends :)

    I could make lists all day long! I love it - I'll add something I just did to a list I've made just so I can cross it off!

    My husband doesn't put milk on his cereal either!! I had never met anyone that did this until I met him....apparently there are other of "you" in the world, haha

    I really want to run a 1/2 marathon but it scares the crap out of me. So props to you!! Way impressive!

    And, we have the same taste in wine :)
