[the rules...]
one. you must post the rules.
two. post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
three. answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
four. tag eleven people and link them on your post
five. let them know you've tagged them!
1. I think a bad day can be solved with three things: a Diet Coke, some Pretzel M&M's and something on TLC.
2. I am the best at ruining my own surprises because I am so observant sometimes. It is not my best trait, haha.
3. My new years resolution is simply to stress less and pray more. I think those two go hand in hand!
4. I am now getting a second undergraduate degree, not a Master's degree. And I am still not sure what I want to be when I grow up!
5. I have lived in the same house my entire life, with the exception of college. But I have lived in three different rooms in that same house.
6. I'm a huge advocate for St. Jude and I think raising money for children with cancer is incredibly important and a cause very close to my heart.
7. I can touch my tongue with my nose and wiggle my ears. Yes, it is good to be thisssss talented.
8. I am more of a quality over quantity person when it comes to friends. I love meeting new people but I know who my best friends are when it is all said and done.
9. Hokie born, Hokie bred and when I die I'll be Hokie dead. But I am in love with a Wahoo. So I can't wait to buy all of the "house divided" stuff eventually. With Virginia Tech on top, of course.
10. I would much rather eat veggies than fruit. 
11. I own about twenty long sleeved white knit shirts. And I would like more. They are the best staples!

11 Questions from Cori to me:
1. What is your favorite song right now?
I'm not really good at listening to new music so I don't know! Some of my forever favorites are: Amie - Pure Prairie League, Something - The Beatles, Semi-Charmed Life - Third Eye Blind. I am veeerryyy music quirky :)
2. What is the one thing that you are obsessed with right now?
My cowboy boots and my nude/leopard flats. I wear one or the other everyday!
3. What is your favorite restaurant?
The Vineyards in Newport News. It is fresh, homemade Italian and Stuart and I always go at least once when we are home. So good!
4. What do you want to be when you grow up? Or are you doing it already?
Career wise, I'm not quite sure yet. I have a few ideas and endless possibilities with these degrees. Eventually I wanna be a stay at home wife and momma when my kids are little though.
5. What is your one wish for 2012?
Less stress, more enjoying life!

On and off for a few years but I really got back into it in the past six months. Originally I started my blog as just a journal of my study abroad.

Ohhh, the Twit. Love to tweet and I love that you can say more of what you want.
8. Who in your life inspires you the most?
Nick, Kaleb, Poppi, my parents, Stuart. Not in any particular order but in all kinds of different ways. Nick, Kaleb and Poppi I know are always watching me and supporting me from heaven. My parents are the realistic supporters and have helped me every step of the way and Stuart encourages me everyday to simply do what makes me the happiest. I am a lucky girl.

Run or drink a Diet Coke, and watch a movie or tv show.

Thanks for playing along! :)

That Italian restaurant sounds so good. I love good Italian food! Can I come visit? haha! :)

My boyfriend is a Florida Gator while I'm a FSU Seminole, so I totally relate to the house divided stuff! Coincidentally, neither of us are even from Florida!

Hope you're having a great weekend!
