11 .. 33 ..

I was tagged to play a blog game by my friend Christy Steel.
I have to say 11 things about myself and answer 11 questions and then make up 11 questions. Now that I've added that up I'm going to have to change the title of this blog from 11 to 33. There it is... ok. 33 not 11.

The Rules

1. You must post the rules. 
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post. 
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged. 
4. Tag eleven people and link them on your post. 
5. Let them know you've been tagged!

Alright, 11 things about me you probably wish you didn't know.

1. When I am driving and I come upon a gate that's closed I have an extremely strong urge to drive at full speed and bust through it. Really, every. single. time. I see one I relive one of those action sequences from the movies, except I'm the one behind the wheel.

2. I don't like to be kissed on the ear. It causes this screeching sound and it hurts.

3. My son says that I'm funny. I never knew I was funny.

4. As a young girl my mom would buy these chewable orange flavored vitamin C's. I thought they were the best thing ever and I'd sneak them, often.

5. I never thought I'd actually find a husband. I wasn't payed much attention to in school and honestly thought that something might be wrong with me. I am so thankful that God gave me Jacob.

6. I never knew we'd have more than 4 children. When I found out I was pregnant with Libby I cried.

7. Moving around so much is extremely difficult for me.

8. When I was a little girl my younger brother stoned me. Well, he actually threw a rock at me. I delighted in the fact that he'd be spanked for his incredulous action.... I know that was really bad of me to delight in his demise.

9. I have these strange little bumps on my arms that won't go away no matter how many times I scrub them. Isn't that weird?

10. I eat ice cream with an extremely small spoon so that it lasts a long time. As a matter of fact I eat all of my desserts this way. When I have chocolate it tends to remain for an uncommonly long time. I don't indulge and eat the whole bar, but rather eat a bit at a time over a period of a month. That's strange huh?

11. I don't like other people's feet to touch mine. It makes me feel extremely weird and angry.

Okay, to answer Christy's questions:

What is your earliest childhood memory? 
There was a storm in the dark of night and my father had to go outside and do something to make our lights come back on. My mom was sitting beside me near the door and there was a dog there.
What is your worst/most embarrassing childhood memory? 
Locking myself into a bathroom stall in middle school and needing help to get out.

Name one of your greatest strengths and one of your greatest weaknesses. 
Strength: Being married to a Marine and having to pack up our life every 1-4 years.
Weakness: Assuming I know what people are thinking about me.

10 years ago, where did you see yourself today? 
Doing the same thing I was doing then.. being a wife and mother.

How is real life like or different from your vision? 
I never really had a vision.. I was just living one day at a time. In college I took roller skating for a credit.. 

Duggars- love them or hate them? 
I'm humbled by them. So LOVE is the answer. 

What is one charity or cause that you are especially passionate about? 
Compassion International.

What is the hobby that you wish you had time/money to pursue, but don't? 
Time to pursue along with warmth of climate would be Surfing. But, only because Jake enjoys it so much.

Who is the person in your life who has had the greatest impact on who you are? 
I don't know if I can answer this question. God has used many more people than one. 

If you met President Obama and had the opportunity to ask him one question, what would it be?
Your mother gave birth to you, gave you a name, and raised you... Why do you sanction the murder of innocent children in the womb?

What book, besides the Bible, has influenced you the most? 
It was a devotional book for couples that Jake and I read by James Dobson. It upset our marriage in a very good way and helped to turn us around for good!

If I gave you $100 right now, with no strings attached except that you had to spend it, what would you do with it? 
Buy a pretty dress or some fabric.

11 Questions from me:
1. Worst Habit?
2. Where did you meet your spouse? I want details.
3. If you could sit down and eat dinner with one person who would it be? They can be living or dead.
4. What's your favorite side dish at Thanksgiving?
5. What's your dream vacation?
6. What book has influenced you most?
7. Why don't you like brussel sprouts? If you do like them, how do you prepare them?
8. What do you wish you would have spent more time doing 5 years ago?
9. If you live to be 90 years old what will have been most important to you?
10. What's the first thing you do when you wake up?

I love the post!! and I answered your questions,:)

Christy said...

Thanks so much for playing along :)

My mom used to give us the same orange vitamins when we were kids except that we hated them. Every day we would eat our cereal at the coffee table and watch cartoons. When she brought us the vitamins we would shove them under the couch behind us. No one knew...until we moved and there were hundreds of vitamins under the couch!
