Who are you?

By now I think we've all seen the "tag" game floating around, and let me just say...I love it! I love seeing the questions that people come up with and especially the blogger's answers! It's such a fun way to get to know each other more.

The lovely Emmalee at Everyday Emmalee tagged me in her post today. She is new to blogging - but you'd never know it! She is a pro already. Y'all go give her some blog love!
I know I've already done one of these posts, but this is mostly for new followers who may want to know a little bit about me!

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 tagged them!

I know the rules say to post eleven facts, but since I already did this once, I'm going to post six! These are a bit more odd than my first ones :)

1. I can't swallow pills with water. I have to put them in a spoonful of applesauce...even itty bitty Ibuprofens!
2. I think there is only one day on record that I went into Target and didn't buy anything.
3. I sleep with socks on.
4. I like to walk up/down stairs starting & ending with my left foot. If it's an even number of stairs, I start with my right and end with my left. Must end with my left. (Once I tripped because I was trying to switch my feet at the last second)
5. I subscribe to People, Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Runner's World magazines.
6. On my bed is 4 pillows, a body pillow, a penguin pillow pet and 4 stuffed animals: Stitch (my must-have...he came from Disney last year), a brown bear with a Lehigh shirt on, a penguin from Build-a-Bear and an otter holding a baby otter. I don't like to be lonely!

Okay, so now that you all think I'm five years old...

Here are Emmalee's questions!

1. When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A teacher! I used to play "school" with my little brother. What do you know - it came full circle and that's what I'm studying :)

2. What's been your favorite vacation and why?
I'm going to combine my three trips to Florida into one and say that! I've been to West Palm Beach, Tampa and the Orlando area. It's my favorite because Florida is warm & perfect kind of weather! I was also able to do fun things at each place that are some of my favorite memories!
A close second would be to Charleston when my brother was living there :)

3. If you had a time machine what time period of time would you travel back to and why?
The 50's! One word: Grease.

4. Are you a beach or mountain person?
This is a tough one! I was born and lived for a while at the beach, I now live in the mountains. I think the mountains say "home" to me, but if given the choice I'd rather be laying on the beach!

5. What are your three favorite books?
It's hard to pick just three! Pretty much any of Nicholas Sparks' books. I love his writing.

6. If you had a million dollars how would you spend it?
I would make all of my Pinterest crafts, I would buy a house to decorate with those crafts, I would adopt a puppy, I would put some into savings & then I would donate the rest to a charity!

7.  Mac or PC?
Mac for life!

8. What's something quirky you do?
When possible, I like to match my undergarments. I also always (unless wearing tennis shoes) have fun, printed socks on. You don't see any plain jane browns/whites in my sock bin! Right now I have on red socks with orange/pink polka dots.

9. What was your favorite toy as a child?
Barbie! I also had a pink, blue and white dollhouse that was played with nonstop.

10. If you could vacation anywhere right now where would you go and who would you take with you?
I would go to Austin, Texas with my family & Steven (it's where he is originally from)!

11. What's your favorite tradition you do with your family and why?
Going to watch fireworks on the 4th of July because it's one of my favorite holidays! I also like our tradition of back to school/school's out ice cream because...well, I love ice cream!

If you haven't been tagged and want to participate in this, feel free to answer these questions as well :)
I'd love to learn more about my followers!



  1. Thank you SO much for doing this! :) I'm with you on the 50's- I love Grease! And it's always nice to meet another Mac lifer. :)
    Thanks again Sarah!

  2. I want to go to Austin so badly! I just moved to Houston so I hope to go soon :)

  3. I cannot go to Target without buying a bunch of random stuff too! It's a great place to buy fun socks too :)

  4. I agree, I love the tag posts too! It's so much fun learning about everyone. Your answers were great but HOW do you sleep with socks on? That would drive me insane LOL.

  5. i am also a mac user for life! :) best money i ever spent. :)
