Tag, You’re It

What better way to wrap up the week than to participate in a lovely game of tag, right?  Katie over at NFP and Me tagged me earlier this week, so now I get to pass it on.  🙂
Here’s the idea:
  1. The first rule is to post these rules.  (Done!)
  2. Post a photo of yourself then write 11 things about you/your life.
  3. Answer the questions for you set in the original post.
  4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
  5. Go to their blog/twitter to tell them you have tagged them.

I have got to get better about having my picture taken.  I just usually have the camera in my hands.  But here I am with my baby boy and it’s a decent pic, which is kind of a miracle in and of itself.

Eleven things about myself/my life:
1.   I’m very opinionated
2.   I’m not a very good listener
3.   Married 13 years this summer
4.   I have been blessed with five children, three girls and two boys
5.   I’m a rabid KU fan (yes, I am annoying…apologies in advance)
6.   I was a toll collector in college and that job helped pay for some of my tuition and living expenses
7.   I ran a marathon in 2007
8.   I worked really hard and later that year, I ran my personal best in half marathon
9.   I dream of beating that half marathon time someday, but wonder if I might be too old
10. I’m a pretty pride-ful person (ironically, I am not proud of that)
11. I look on the bright side

Questions Katie asked of me:

1. Weirdest class you’ve ever taken?
— I took a Logic for Computer Programming course when I mistakenly thought I should be a Computer Science Major. 
2. If you could only eat 2 foods ever again what would they be?
— Olives and Pizza
3. What’s your go-to belt it out in the car song?
— Love Story or Back to December by Taylor Swift
4. What’s the most OCD thing you do?
— If people hand me papers stapled together and the corners don’t match up, or they have more than one staple, I will remove all extra staples, make sure corners line up and re-staple.
5. Favorite high school memory?
— Winning North Carolina State 4A High School Volleyball Championship my junior year (it was my school’s twelfth consecutive high school championship, but we had just moved and I made the team, ended up being one of the starters and that season was an all-around blast)
6. Won’t you share your opinion on camping? Love it or hate it?
— Strong Dislike for it.  (I’m a hotel with shower and air conditioning type of girl)
7. Weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
— Ethiopian food (my brother-in-law had his rehearsal dinner at an Ethiopian restaurant)
8. E-reader or real book reader and why?
— real book reader.  Probably because I don’t have a Kindle (yet)
9. Favorite TV show currently on?
— Smash (really…I don’t watch much TV…mostly just college basketball, but I do like this show)
10. What’s your favorite award you’ve won?
— My favorite thing ever is the one 1st place medal I got for an individual event when I was 11 years old.  I won Division II 100 yard Individual Medley.  It was incredible.  I had gotten 1st place medals as members of relay teams, but this one was all mine.  🙂
11. What’s your claim to fame?
— Well, our family was featured in the March/April 2010 Family Foundations.  Courtesy Kathleen Basi.  That was pretty cool.

Well, that was…interesting, right?  I had to think about some of those!

Here are my questions for you whom are tagged:

1.   What’s your go-to alcoholic beverage?
2.   What’s your biggest accomplishment post-college?
3.   How many blogs do you follow?
4.   How many blogs do you regularly read?
5.   What’s your earliest memory?
6.   What is one word your mother would use to describe you?
7.   What is your favorite non-fiction book?
8.   What book have you read over and over again?
9.   What time do you get up in the morning?
10. What radio station genre do you listen to the most?
11. What was your favorite vacation?

Now for the tagging.  Well, I don’t know if I have anyone I can tag since Katie tagged a bunch that I would have tagged!  Okay, so maybe Sarah, Elizabeth, Elizabeth and Jamie.
