11 Things…

When the blog is somewhat quiet, sometimes a meme is order. Thanks to Mrs. Momma Bee for tagging me to try out this one!

11 Things You May Not Know About Me

  1. I have an obsession with to-do lists. I can’t write them down on paper because when I do one of the tasks and check it off/cross it out/whatever, I MUST immediately re-write the ENTIRE list again, so it can be fresh and clean.
  2. I can’t cook breakfast foods. Even with a recipe, breakfast foods and I just don’t get along. Instagram for photographic proof.
  3. I’m working on creating my own business. It’s pretty scary and awesome at the same time.
  4. I could O.D. on strawberries. We have been buying cartons of them from Costco and they don’t even have time to go bad! It’s the best time of the year.
  5. I was a cheerleader in high school – I was even the flyer for the varsity team when they needed to practice new moves. That’s the one they toss up into the air and hopefully catch on the way down!
  6. I was going to audition to be a costumed character at Disney, if other things hadn’t changed my path. A professor at my college really thought I would be great at it, because I’m expressive actor with my body. Hehe.
  7. I have almost 600 friends on Facebook but only check the status of about 200 of them on a given day. That still seems excessive looking at it now.
  8. I am trying to be a better Cardinals fan this year by paying more attention to the games as they’re played – and not asking who a particular player is because more than likely he’s been on our roster for three years.
  9. I have only owned two cars in my life – and they were both red Saturns. :) Hubs’ cars don’t count.
  10. I own three iPhones – an iPhone 3G that I use for podcasts, an iPhone 4 that I use every day and an iPhone 4S for work. Plus a shuffle means that I have too many things to carry around with me.
  11. A weekend afternoon nap is my favorite part of the weekend, hands down.

11 Questions

1. What is your profession?

I’m an event planner by day, wedding planner by night and a sometimes-actor. I think that sounds like an odd type of super hero or something.

2. How would you describe your style?

Confused? Is that a style? I would say traditional.

3. What one make-up product can you not live without?

Mascara. I look so weird without it, but it’s worth putting it on in the morning, even if I do get raccoon eyes at the end of the day if I forget to wash it off.

4. If you could be besties with one celebrity, who would it be?

I miss Ugly Betty on TV. I think America Ferrera looks like a fun gal to hang around.

5. What is your dream vacation?

I love taking cruises. The idea that your hotel room travels with you to beautiful ports of call is just the perfect vacation for me. But the dream would be to rent a huge fancy yacht and sail it around the world, stopping whenever and wherever we’d like.

6. What magazines do you subscribe to?

Real Simple. And I’m still six months behind.

7. If you could have any special talent {that you don't currently have}, what would it be?

I would like to be able to sing in church without making dogs howl.

8. What is your favorite breakfast food?

Anything that I don’t cook? But really, a nicely done french toast with maple syrup and powdered sugar is amazing.

9. If you could do anything, what is your dream job?

Cruise director. I wanted to do that right after college, but meeting my future-husband changed the direction of my life. I think living on a cruise ship, meeting lots of different people, sounds awesome.

10. What is your guilty pleasure?

I’m gonna go with Mrs. Momma Bee – trashy TV. Although I’m trying to break myself of the habit, I still watch the Bachelor series (I’ve only been into it for a few years, though!) and the Duggars and the like. I’ve stopped watching the Sister Wives only because I can’t take it anymore.

11. What is the best piece of advice you've ever received, and who gave it to you?

"Ask God's blessing on your work, but don't ask him to do it for you."
~Dame Flora Robson, English thespian

And now, to tag a few other ladies…
