11 things tag

This is going around! :)  And Marcia at The Studly Runner tagged me so here we go:

1. Post these rules
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself
3. Answer the questions set for you in their post
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer
5. Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them
6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people!

The 11 things about me:
1. I've totally furnished a guest room of a house that I don't have yet! :)
2. I went shopping today and spent $93, but saved $684!
3. My birthday is in two weeks and I'm celebrating by watching the Super Bowl.
4. I'm addicted to the Bachelor this season and I can't stand him... or the girls.
5. I love J-Lo and Steven Tyler on American Idol.
6. I learned the hard way that the gym at 3:30 in the afternoon is the highschool hangout (like, O.M.G) 
7. My sister, who teaches high school, should be sainted. 
8. I hate the snow, but was so excited to see it come down on Friday.  It can leave any day now.
9. I'm so glad that bathingsuit season never really hits me.
10. Although if I had the chance, I'd don one right now so that I could be at a beach!
11. My hubby is the best! (Let's see if he reads this... um... I don't think so!)
Answers to Marcia's Questions
1. Do you have any pets? - Yep, two dogs, Buddy and Charlie
2. Most embarrassing moment? - Hum... I don't know.  It's funny because I honestly can't remember something that totally sticks out to me.  I guess I've done so many dumb things in life! :)
3. Favorite brand of running gear? Brooks or C9 from Target!
4. Dream vacation? I'd love to go back to the French Polynesian and stay in a hotel with the huts on the water.
5. Dream race? Any in which I can put my toes in the sand with an umbrella drink the next day! :)
6. Favorite GU flavor? Not a gu fan, but I love Watermelon Gu Chomps!
7. Snow ski or water ski? Snow skiing
8. Do you get a flu shot? Yep
9. Gold, sterling silver or platinum? Ha... on my budget, sterling silver
10. What grade in school did you enjoy most? Least? Hum... I was a total dork and liked school, but probably 5th grade best because I was in a gifted program where I got to leave the school a few days a week and take special classes where we just did all kinds of projects.  Least - hum... maybe 2nd grade when I moved in the middle of the school year.
11. How often do you get a haircut? Not nearly often enough - maybe every 4-5 months.

Questions for the people I tagged:
1. Where is one place in the world you'd love to travel?
2. What one food could you eat for every meal?
3. If you were a super hero, what power would you possess?
4. If you won the lottery, would you still work?
5. You are stranded on a deserted island... what three things do you have with you?
6. If you could bring one person to the island, who would it be?
7. What's your favorite holiday?
8. What movie could you watch over and over and over?
9. How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?
10. Would you rather be really hot or really cold?
11.  If you could change just one thing about yourself, what would it be?

And finally here's who I tagged:

There... now you can't say that you don't have anything to blog about! :)  Check back this week for a giveaway! :)

I love your new header!!!!
I am also addicted to Bachelor and I dont know why...he is so boring and I still watch... :)

Jill said...

Love getting to know people from these things. Thanks for sharing.

Oh the Scott bike...we will see if that happens. Hoping a few connections can help me make that happen. I'm not holding my breath too long.

I'm so anxious to get a road bike..I can't wait.

misszippy said...

Love your new header--to go with the new house? ; )

I'm with you on that vacation; sounds perfect. So do you race using chomps? I can train w/ them, but find them a bit difficult to take in during a race. And nothing wrong with sterling silver!

adena said...

I love these things! I didn't see yours til after I posted mine, I tagged Matty too.

adena said...

and love the new look on the blog!

Matthew Smith said...

Well, thanks for tagging me, I guess... :)

Nice work with the shopping savings! That's incredible!!!

I hate the snow too, but it's raining right now and melting it all away! Don't worry...there's not too much snow in GA!!! YAY!

Matty O said...

AYE CARUMBA! Tagged by 2 people so far (I haven't even finished blog reading yet) and since these are different questions... oh man am i screwed.

Our rec center does not pull many high schoolers for some reason? At my old house, totally can relate to the high school hangout comment, pissed me off, they are all inconsiderate spoiled jackasses!

Coy Martinez said...

All I can think about is beach now!!!

Unknown said...

ha! I tagged you too :)
I was in G&T 2-7th grades so that must be why we tagged eachother.
we're super smart!! lol

Jason said...

So glad that you clarified the spent and saved.

Karen comes home and says I saved $XXXX which is all fine and dandy but you had to have spent to have saved.

You'll be celebrating your birthday watching the GIANTS in the Super Bowl.....I think is what you meant.

Kristen said...

Thanks for adding me to your list. :) Makes my night feel better since I'm off to continue grading my 55 literary analysis over "Of Mice and Men".

Karen said...

I love your new header too! I thought it looked different a day or so ago but thought maybe I was losing my mind... LOVE Steven Tyler and J-Lo on American Idol as well!

Anne-Marie said...

Fun post... I wish I were at the beach right now though!!!

I'm so behind on blogs... just got caught up on your last few posts. Hope the ATL house situation is improving!

The new header looks great too!

Has Tom read this yet??

The C9 stuff rocks! I have a ton of their long compression shirts for a base layer.

Christmas break turns into highschool time at my pool. It is the worst two weeks of the year.

Caratunk Girl said...

Your new header is awesome!!!

That was a fun post!

I am just catching up on blogs, I am going to zero out my Google reader and try again :)
