The Sunshine Award

Hello loves, I was tagged by the sweet Katie Elizabeth to do The Sunshine Award tag. I like these tags, they help you get to know other bloggers!

Here is how it works-
11 random facts about yourself
Answer the 11 questions left for you
Leave 11 questions for the bloggers you tag

Here are my 11 random facts-

-I don't eat seafood. Not because I don't like it, because it completely freaks me out to eat something out of the ocean. I always try to explain it by, it's like eating a snake to me. YUCK.

-I always want to sit in the back row of the movie theater, if possible. If not, I continually look behind me during the movie, and annoy my husband haha. 

-I sleep with a fan on for noise and take a 1mg Melatonin every single night. I sleep very well!

-I've been at my job for 7 years. Before that I worked at Wal-Mart and a credit union. 

-I am extremely organized and want everything a certain way. It bugs me. 

-I have a MAJOR sweet tooth

-I'm a concert junkie! I can't even count how many concerts I've been to. I've seen Taylor Swift 3 times, if that gives you any idea… 

-I have 4 tattoos and my belly button is pierced 

-I LOVE coffee. When I go to bed at night I look forward to the morning and my coffee. I MUST have creamer though, and a dash of sugar.

-I have 2 brothers, one older and one younger 

-I've seen every episode of Friends more than once and watch reruns often. 

My Answers to the 11 questions from Katie-

1-What is your favorite Christmas movie? Elf, I watch it every year and always laugh a ton. My family has always watched and loved Christmas Vacation too! 

2-What's the best vacation you've been on? I would have to say our honeymoon in Playa Del Carmen, we had a great time and it was our first major trip together.

3-If you could only have your computer or television for the rest of your life, which would you choose? I would say my computer, so I could continue to blog and hey, you can watch TV shows on your computer ;) ah ha! 

4-Where were you born? I'm an Okie from Muskogee! If you aren't from Oklahoma, I'm not sure if you're familiar with that song.. 

5-What is your dream job? My dream job would be something to do with makeup/beauty. Not sure exactly what, I would love anything really in that line of work!

6-What is the best gift you've ever received? Can I say my wedding ring? I LOVE it, and it's so special to me.

7-What are your goals for your blog? I just LOVE meeting new people, making friends and building relationships with people all over the country. I hope I am fortunate enough to continue with that. 

8-What is a typical daily outfit for you? Warmer weather-jeans, flats and a top/tank. Cooler weather-jeans, boots and a sweater or cardigan over a tank.

9-How did you meet your significant other? We met through our best friends. My friend Angela was dating his friend Andrew. That was 7 years ago, they are married now too and we live a couple miles from each other. 

10-Are you named after anyone? I don't think so, although I'm pretty sure my mom got my name from Mia Farrow…

11-What is your favorite beauty product of all time? L'Oreal Voluminous mascara. I've bought it for as long as I can remember. My newest faves though would be the Covergirl 3-in-1 foundation and Urban Decay setting spray.
