Good morning! The lovely Mrs. Elizabeth @ David & Elizabeth tagged me in this fun post, so it's my turn to answer the questions.

The Rules

1. You must post the rules.
2. Post 11 fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post.
and then create 11 new questions for the people you tagged.
4. Tag 12 people and link them on your post.
5. Let them know you've tagged them!

11 Fun (or not so fun) Facts:

1. I have a major slight obsession with HGTV and could spend hours in home decor stores (including the home sections of Marshalls, Ross & TJ Maxx)

2. I have 8 birth marks. I don't mean those little dark moles/sports, I mean five darker brown patches that are bigger than a quarter. Only like 5 are where everyone can see them, especially a long oval shaped one on my calf. My parents thought I had this disease called "Cafe Au Lait" that results in lots of birth marks on people, but one of the common side affects of the disease is stunted growth.. I'm 5'9 so obviously it's not an issue.

3. Josh and I watch reality shows on the History Channel, Discovery and A&E like it's our job. Our favorites are Moonshiners, Sons of Guns, Deadliest Catch, Pawn Stars and American Pickers

4. I leave a trail of bobbi pins wherever I go. I can't help it. They either fall out of my hair or I take them out and mean to put them back in but forget. Josh HATES it.

5. The sound of something clicking their nails together makes me want to die.

6. I say "I love you" at the end of EVERY phone conversation with my family, Josh and best friends. I just like it to the the last thing I say to them.

7.  I am a complete sci-fi/fantasy nerd when it comes to movies. I love Underworld, Dune, superhero movies, Star Wars and the like. 

8. I have lived in five different houses, all in the same county, but I consider the first one I ever lived in "our old house".

9. I have a new-found bangle addiction. Seriously, it's getting ridiculous.

10. I hate coupons. I wish I could get into the craze, but if I have to search and search for a coupon then read the fine print and then find out which store will accept them, I'd rather just not save $2. Props to those who enjoy it and make lots of money doing it.

11. I have intense road rage. Like I've been known to yell at people, climb out of the car a few times and make not nice hand gestures. (sorry if you're reading this daddy)
