Tag! (& giveaway winners)


Erin and Erin B. Inspired tagged me in this meme, and really… well, I like filling out surveys (and I’m a little excited that she thought to tag ME – I love her blog, so go check it out if you haven’t already!) so what the heck?


  1. You must post these rules.
  2. Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
  3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
  4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post. Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her.
  5. No tag backs and you legitimately have to tag 11 people.


  1. I was raised around hunting (mainly deer/elk, but my husband hunts – or would like to hunt – just about every kind of game out there) but couldn’t imagine killing anything myself.
  2. … but I realllllly like to eat the meat!
  3. Since about 1/3 of the way through my pregnancy, I haven’t been able to stomach stuffed pastas (ravioli, etc.)… forget about eating it, I can’t even think about the stuff. Still.
  4. I ate my first hot dog at the age of 21. Before that, I swore I hated them.
  5. I was one of the first in my family to graduate from a 4-year university. Go Cougs!
  6. In college, I studied journalism and still love the field (specifically, copy editing and newspaper design), but working in journalism just isn’t for me.
  7. Because of studying journalism, I’m very picky about grammar. Example: I hate it when people say “over $300” when they really mean “more than $300.”
  8. I watch entirely too much Law & Order: SVU and NCIS. I am not ashamed.
  9. One of the best birthday gifts I ever received was a half flat of strawberries from my big sister. I love strawberries.
  10. I can’t imagine life without dogs. I complain about them a lot (The hair! It’s everywhere! The mess! I can’t keep this place clean! Blah blah blah!) but I LOVE our dogs.
  11. I am overwhelmed by the thought of writing E’s birth story, but it’s something I really, really want to do.


  1. Where is one place (city, state, or country) that you are dying to visit?
    Paris. Rome. London. Greece. EUROPE. Australia. New Zealand.
  2. What is your bed time?
    Ha! What’s that? I (try to) sleep when E sleeps… which, lately, has only been during the day. Apparently he’s like his mama and is a bit of a night owl in his younger years. Example: Last night he was awake from 10:30 pm to 5:00 am. FIVE IN THE MORNING. 
  3. What is one resolution or goal you have for 2012?
    Increase my patience. I’ve never been a very patient person, and dealing with a newborn with my low levels of patience is not easy, y’all.
  4. What would be your last supper?
    My mom’s fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, with my grandma’s potato salad, a fresh green salad and some pumpkin pie. And strawberry cheesecake.
  5. If you could eat a meal with one person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
    My dad… I miss him.
  6. What is your favorite animal?
    Dogs! I can’t live without ’em.
  7. What is your dream job?
    I don’t know about you, but I think the cast of Myth Busters has it pretty good.
  8. Who is your hero?
    After going through labor (and the aftermath) and becoming a mother, I have a whole new respect for my mom. Case in point: She was back to work full-time TWO WEEKS after having me. Good grief. I can’t even.
  9. When you need a snack, do you reach for sweet or salty? (Bonus points if you list your favorite snack.)
    Usually salty, but lately I’ve been all about the sweet.
  10. Does your style have a signature? (For example, [Erin’s] known for bold colors and loud prints.)
    Not really. These days, I’m lucky if my personal styles involves a shower within the last 24 hours.
  11. What is your favorite book?
    I really enjoyed “The Help.” And of course, there’s Harry Potter. There’s always Harry Potter.


  1. What is your favorite TV series?
  2. What is your favorite holiday, and why?
  3. Are you a dog person or a cat person?
  4. PC or Mac?
  5. Tea, coffee or hot chocolate?
  6. Why do you do the job you do?
  7. What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
  8. Why is dealing with the Social Security office such an immense pain in the ass?
  9. What is the best way for you to learn something? (e.g., watching someone else do it, reading, doing it yourself)
  10. “It is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.” Discuss.
  11. What is the best restaurant you’ve ever visited, and where is it? (And are there any in Washington state?)


Nobody. Sorry, I’m a grinch (and also tired and strapped for time – when oh when will Baby E wake up?!) so I’m not actually going to tag anyone… but if you decide to play along and answer the questions I supplied above, please let me know!
