11 Things...

My lovely bloggy friend (well, and real life friend, too), Steph (not to be confused with this Steph, which, when we are together, makes a Steph Trifecta), tagged me on her 11 Things Post via twitter. So now it's my turn. And then I get to be "it" and pay the love forward!

You wish you were this hot.

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.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and tell them that you’ve tagged them.

11 Random Things About Me
(I am drawing inspiration from a post I wrote years ago, so they might not be completely new to you...)
  • I'm a science geek. I LURVE all things Earth and Space Science. I secretly wish I had become a science teacher.
  • I can't fart unless I'm on the toilet.
  • Breyer's Butter Almond Ice Cream is my absolutely favorite ice cream flavor. Ever.
  • I am afraid of balloons.  Not like CRAZY afraid. I would just prefer to not be around them. Or have them in my house. Because, you know, they might POP. Unexpectedly. And scare me. Which subsequently causes me to pee a little.
  • I met my husband when he was a freshmen in high school. And I was a senior. SCANDALLLLL.
  • I grew up Catholic. My confirmation name is Cecilia.
  • I 100% absolutely positively owned the album "Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego" by Rockapella. I am thoroughly proud of this accomplishment. And sometimes wish I knew where the CD was so I could still listen to it.
  • When I was in 7th grade, I accidentally wet the bed once. Because I was having this dream where I had woken up, walked to the bathroom and was "doing my thing." But then I woke up. And I was still in bed. And still "doing my thing."
  • I have a tattoo on my lower back of the chinese symbol for "faith."
  • My favorite kind of salad greens is arugula. I eat an arugula salad almost every day for lunch. Srrrsly.

(OK I chose 7. Don't hate me).


  1. Had to respond to #6 because I think I REALLY cleaned my kitchen floor once or twice since we've lived in our house (going on 2 years). Let's hear it for slate floors!!

    Glad I didn't get tagged so I don't have to answer #11. What a doozy!

  2. In order to hack this prominent game, you should download and install the data to your tool.
    It enriches, provides financial security and
    is always fashionably late. Typical time allotment per
