Yup- I decided that this "Tag" needed a name.  It may or may not die with this post, but for now-
"Q-Tags" is the in Q&A tag. (I thought the former was catchier)
My Blog twin Sarah tagged me, because she is a good twin, so now I get to share it with you!

The first rule of this Q-tags, is that you must not talk about Q-tags....
Until you re-post it, that is ;)

{1} You must post the rules.
{2} Post eleven fun facts about yourself on this 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.

11 Facts about me-

{1} My #1 favorite restaurant in the ENTIRE world is Benihanas.

Circa 2009

I have eaten there for my Birthday for the last EIGHT years!  Now that's dedication.

{2} I'm sometimes viewed as a health nut...although, I have been letting loose quite a bit lately. 
Unfortunately, I only learned that letting loose is not as great as it sounds...
Pass the veggies!

{3} I love movies! Whether it's a movie night out, snuggling on the house or simply in the background while I blog- I heart them.  I don't really have favorites (I just like them all) but we did just see "We Bought a Zoo" and it was phenomenal!!

{4} I went sky diving for my 21st Birthday. It.Was.Awesome.

{5} I'm really good at budgeting...Don't know where I got it from, but Will and I have an awesome system.  Most people see budgeting as a restriction, but I see it as freeing.  I get to budget "fun money" and vacation funds, and enjoy the fruits of my budget.  It's not about constriction. It's about being aware of where your $ is going and prioritizing. 
I know I sound like a dork. I'm ok with that.

{6} I HATE loud noises.  Door slams, balloon pops, abrupt yelling;
They make my stomach queasy. 

{7} I love chocolate. Shocker.  What I can't live without? COFFEE.

{8} I am in the process of learning to drive a stick.  I'm doing juuuuust fine  EXCEPT for when Will mentions going out on the main roads.  Then I freak and stall out. Everytime.

I sat on Zsa Zsa Gabor's lap.
I got to go shopping with the All American Rejects credit card.
I danced with Usher at Timbaland's house.
I sang for Randy Jackson and the entire Ft. Lauderdale Boat Parade- impromptu.

{10} I was in a sorority.
Delta Phi Epsilon, baby.
"To be, rather than to seem to be."

Circa 2007
{11} I was once a cake decorator at The Great American Cookie Company. Fun job.
Buy me a cookie cake and you will be my best friend.

Sarah's Questions-

{1} If you could go anywhere in the world, money not being an issue, where would you go and why?
At the moment- any beach will do to get me away from the Colorado cold.  Next would be the Mediterranean, and I specifically want to visit Greece and Italy.
{2} What's the craziest thing you've ever done?
One might say the skydiving, but in my opinion- I think it's the fact that I decided to marry a man that was going in to the military.  Definitely crazy, but he's worth it.

{3} If you could have any car in the world what would you choose?
'67 Mustang Shelby.  There's just nothing like the sound of that engine.

{4} If you could have dinner with 3 people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
My Grandma, my daddy and my best friend Dani. They are all alive, I just miss them terribly since they are all on the East Coast.

{5} Least favorite chore.

{6} What's the best vacation you've been on?
It's a toss up between Europe and the cruise that Will proposed to me on...leaning towards
 the latter.

{7} What is your food weakness?
French fries. I CAN'T say no.

{8} What was your first concert?
 The Y-100 Jingle Ball

{9} What's your favorite part about blogging?
Connecting with and learning from all of you lovelies, along with that feeling of fulfillment.
I'm also very pleased to be tapping into my writing again!

{10} How many first kisses have you had?
I'd like to plead the 5th on this one.
All that matters is that I am proud to say that I will never have another first kiss, and am blessed to have the perfect man to kiss for the rest of our lives.

{11} What would your dream job be?
Professional Blogger. Duh.
Other than that- I would say a combo of event planning and marketing. I'd want to make my own hours, though, and I'd want to be able to do it my way.  Clients need to trust in the ideas of their planner.
Questions from Moi to YOU-

{1} Where were you born?
{2} Who influenced you the most as a child?
{3} Is there any significance to your name?

{4} What's your pet-peeve?
{5} What is your favorite color?
{6} What song inspires you the most?
{7} What is your favorite book?
