Tag, You're It!

I've been seeing a lot of this little game floating around the blog world, and I have to say I was excited when I got tagged! The name of the game is Bloggers Virtual Tag.. Lets Play,

The Rules:

1. You must post the rules
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog 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.

Eleven fun facts about me:

Sidenote: I'm not sure why but I have the hardest time coming up with answers to this question. In school 90% of my professors required us to go around the room and say an interesting fact about yourself on the first day of class. I was always the girl that couldn't think of anything and would spit out something like I have a Basset Hound.  Not so interesting..

1. I LOVE music. I update my Ipod almost every other day. I listen to music while I'm driving, while I'm getting ready, when I'm blogging.. just anywhere and everywhere. Music can be an immediate mood changer. I'm a big country music fan but also love beach music, oldies, and even a little rap! (not much rap, mainly songs that remind me of high school)

2. Going along with music, I also love to dance. Growing up I took about 12 years of dance lessons. I tried everything from point to clogging. Towards the end I began focusing on ballet and truly love it. College was the end of my dance lessons but the beginning of something else.. shagging! This is most definitely a Carolina thing. NOTHING makes me happier than a sunny day, a sundress, beach music and a shag dance partner!

3. I'm a NC Teaching Fellow

4. I love Paula Deen and hate all the bad publicity she has been getting lately!

5. I started blogging almost a year ago as an outlet to post about the random thoughts I had during the day. I don't have the most interesting life so I didn't expect to ever have very many, if any, followers. Knowing I now have over 150 followers warms my heart(:

6. I'm a morning person. I enjoy waking up early, pouring a cup of coffee and then having an hour completely by myself to blog, read or watch a morning show. That is my me time.

7. My mom is originally from Alabama. Growing up I had the opportunity to visit AL often, instilling in me a love for the state. Roll Tide!

8. I prefer to go shopping by myself rather than with friends.

9. I talked to Scotty McCreery on the phone once! I'm a huge fan of that cutie from Gardner!

10. I think cleaning and organizing can be fun. Weird I know.

11. I hate saying "no" to people. I don't want to come across rude or as a mean person so saying no is rather hard. This gets me in trouble sometimes, for example.. when two friends ask me to do something, or when said boy wont stop texting me because I agreed to one dinner in fear of hurting his feelings. problem!

Eleven Questions from Seersuckered Sailor

1. Favorite de-stressor? Blogging has become that outlet for me!
2. Diet Coke or Tea? Sweet tea! Early Bird or Night Owl? Early bird Soup or Salad? Salad. Milk or Dark Chocolate? What about chocolate milk? E-books vs. Real books? Real books! There is something magical about the pages. Hair up or down? Down! Water or snow? Snow!
3. What is your favorite time of day/day of the week/month of the year? A Friday morning in the middle of Spring sounds perfect to me.
4. What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod? Sweet Southern Comfort by Buddy Jewell
5. Do you plan out blog posts or is it spontaneous? They are mostly spontaneous.
6. Are you and your friends like twins or polar opposites? I would say twins.

8. If you could offer a new blogger only one piece of advice, what would it be? Be yourself! Your blog is for you- stay true to your character.
9. If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose? Hm, that's a good question! The best I can come up with at the moment is Ariele from the Little Mermaid because what girl doesn't want to be a mermaid?
10. What is your biggest pet peeve? Watching others be mean/rude to other people. This makes me feel so uncomfortable. I just hate it!!
11. What’s the one blog post you’re most proud of? I'm most proud of my first post. Not because it's spectacular but because it represents the leap of faith I took in creating this blog. I have met so many people and learned so much through it.
