11 Things About Me

Its so nice to be back! What a week/weekend/Monday we had this week! Starting on Wednesday, my little stuffy nose became a terrible cold/cough/who knows what else because I kept throwing up too has had me sidelinded!

Then (despite not feeling at all better!) this weekend, I flew out to New York to look at wedding venues and go to my dad's Bruce Springsteen party - and I couldn't fit my computer in my luggage!

As a result, I am very far behind in my commenting/emailing/blogging, but today is my catch up day!

I know I need to share:
Friday/Saturday of A Week in the Life 2011
Pictures from the party, including all those decorations my mom and I made
Scavenger Hunt Sunday photos
some fun wedding stuff

So keep an eye out for all of those things this week!

But Sunday, the awesome Tracy tagged me in her post 11 Things About Me - so now its my turn to share!

The rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and 11 random things.
3. Answer the questions set for you in the original post.
4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog and twitter and tell them you've tagged them.

Since you guys see lots of grown up pictures of me all the time, I thought I'd share this one of me when I was a kid!

1. There are at least 6 boxes of macaroni and cheese in my house at all times. Right now, there are 10.
2. I've seen Bruce Springsteen so many times I've lost count (I think its around 14 now) and I'm going to see him again in a few weeks.
3. I am totally afraid of the dark. When AJ isn't home, I sleep with a light on...sometimes all the lights on.
4. I'm terrible at geography. Really bad. I though Chicago was in Ohio until I moved here. (It was the whole ending in "o" thing, I though all cities matched their states because of New York and Philadelphia!)
5. I love to bake, but don't like to eat baked goods. Fortunately, my brother, my dad and AJ all loooove freshly baked cookies!
6. When I was in school, I would get in trouble for reading too much. I'd always have a book out, during lessons, during dinner, all the time.
7. I can sleep anywhere. Friday, I slept sitting up in the airport with all my bags on my lap.
8. I wait all year for peppermint hot chocolate to come out. It tastes like Christmas time.
9. If possible, I would spent my whole summer sitting either on the beach or in my backyard. I've even tried to scrapbook in the backyard on pretty days, although I don't recommend it, there are little tiny winds you didn't expect!
10. My credit card is not happy when I go to Staples. I love office supplies, especially pens and post its. I carry a small pencil holder with a bunch of pens and a few different post its at all times.
11. I still can't believe I'm getting married next year. It doesn't seem real, but I am so happy that it is!


1 What is your favourite craft to do? 
Scrapbooking
2. Where were you born? 
Long Island, New York
3. What is your favourite crafting tool? 
You mean I have to chose just one?! That is way too hard Tracy! If I had to chose just one...okay, well, I'm going to say my eclips, because I love the shapes on their cartridges, especially their fonts!
4. What is your least favourite household chore? 
I hate folding and putting away laundry! I tend to leave my clothes on the drying rack until I'm ready to wear them!
5. Sweet or Sour treats? 
I'll take sweet over sour, but salty over anything!
6. What is your favourite movie? 
When Harry Met Sally. I kind of have a thing for Billy Crystal in that movie, it totally freaks out AJ!
7. What is your easiest meal to put together? 
What we had for dinner last night - bruschetta topped pasta, its just penne with diced tomatoes thrown on top. If I'm feeling fancy, I'll toss some Parmesan or mozzarella on top. If I'm feeling really really fancy, I'll use the little bite sized fresh mozzarella balls. 
8. What is your best project you have ever made...photo if possible :)
Right now, my favorite is my "LOVE" project (you can check it out here and here)
9. What is your guilty pleasure? 
Goldfishies, I can eat tons and tons of them. Extra points if there is a trashy reality show TV marathon going on while I'm eating the goldfishies, and I get to stay in my pjs to watch it!
10 When is your best time to create? 
I am a total night owl. I love to create at night, and stay up super late then sleep in. The whole "having a job" thing kind of messes with that!
11. What is your favourite season. 
Fall. Especially October. That's why we are getting married on October 5, 2013!

My questions to you are:
1. What is the best part of your day?
2. What is the worst part of your day?
3. What is your favorite song of all time?
4. Where is your dream vacation spot?
5. Paint or wallpaper?
6. What was the last movie you saw (and would you see it again)?
7. Have you ever lived in another state or even another country?
8. Do you watch the Oscars for the dresses, the awards, or don't even turn it on?
9. When did you start crafting?
10. What is your least favorite food?
11. What is one thing you just can't live without?

I'm going to tag:

I can't wait to read everyone's posts! I'll be back tomorrow for WOYWW!
