tag! - i'm it! ...for now.

This little game is making its rounds throughout the blogging world. I think it's a great idea because you get to learn so much about your blog friends - which is always great. :) PLUS, it gives your readers a chance to find new blogs to watch.

Thank you to Hannah for tagging me! Have you seen her page? She and her little family are darling.

So here are 'The Rules'...
1. You must post the rules. (and then break, bend, or create your own)
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post. (I am choosing not to do this.)
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven (or a couple) new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
4. Tag eleven (or a couple) other people and link them on your post.
5. Let them know you've tagged them!

My Questions from Hannah:

 If you could have any job in the world what would it be? 
That is a really tough question!  There are many things I would love to be, but the one that definitely sticks out the most is to be a party planner. I loved planning Ellie's 1st birthday and I can't wait for the day that I get to plan my wedding.  There's something about chalkboards, paper straws, and cupcakes that just makes me happy! I couldn't imagine if I could turn that into a full time job like Kim Stoegbauer did!

Why did you start your personal blog?
When I first started blogging, I thought it was mainly to keep others updated on my pregnancy and Ellie's first days. But then once she came, I realized how fast the time was flying by and how important it is to document every moment. I want to be able to remember these days when they're long gone. 

What is your biggest goal in life?
My biggest goal is to always be happy. I think a lot of people get caught up in the material things and can dwell on unhappy things and stressful situations. As long as I can focus on what keeps me and my family happy, I think I'm doing the right thing. 

What is your biggest pet peeve?
Without a doubt - poor grammar. I cannot take someone seriously when horrible grammar is involved. I am quick to judge when someone can't spell - and I shouldn't be, but I can't help it! :/

If you could invent anything in the world what would it be? Why?
This may sounds silly, but if it could be anything in the world, I would definitely create a magic potion that heals ALL sickness and all hurt. I hate seeing family/friends . . . even strangers! . . . in any sort of pain. I would love to be able to just take that away from everyone. 

What do you like the most about yourself?
Probably that I am forgiving. I'm glad that I don't sweat the small stuff and I won't hold a grudge. Don't get me wrong, I definitely get mad on occasion, but typically I get over things pretty quick. 

What is your biggest weakness?
Impulsive spending. I buy WAY too much - I love to shop! I need to start saving money and not buying so many pointless things. Yes, Ellie's bows are adorable, but they are pricey! Sheww!

If you were given 1 million dollars today, what would you do with it?
Pay off my parents mortgage - they do so much for me, and I would love to do something big for them!  Then I would use it toward student loans and pay off my car. THEN, do some impulsive spending.
^^ see above ^^
 Lastly, I would invest and start saving for Ellie's college costs. If education is pricey now, I can't imagine what it'll be in 18 years!
