11 Things

I wasn't tagged specifically by Chelsea but she tagged anyone who wanted to do this so I thought I'd do it again with the new questions for everyone.

Here are the rules:
1. post these rules.
2. post a photo of yourself & 11 random facts about you.
3. answer the questions given to you in the tagger's post.
4. create 11 new questions & tag new people to answer them.
5. go to their blog/twitter & let them know they've been tagged.


Random Facts about me:
1. I have become completely obsessed with the Harry Potter movies lately and have one on during Zane's nap time every day pretty much because to me they are just that good!

2. I hate to clean... it is the bane of my existence. If I could afford to have someone come clean my house every week I would because I hate it that much.

3. I hated being pregnant, I mean HATED it. It was the worst 9 months of my life because of how sick I was the entire time {to the point I was at the hospital 2x a week getting infusions of fluid because of my dehydration caused by throwing up 24/7} Zane literally was sucking the life out of me. But I cannot wait to be pregnant again {I know the next one could be completely different & I pray that it is!} because I know that I will get another baby in the end and it is all worth it to get to hold that baby for the first time.

4. I was adopted. {as I've said before} But I didn't tell you that my biological mother chose my parents but in order for her to give me to them she had to fly to Oregon {from Michigan} to have me. Because in Michigan when you put you baby up for adoption you have no say in the matter of who gets your child. They become a ward of the state. But she wanted me in a Christian family so she chose to come here to have me and sacrifice that for me to have a good life. I admire and love her for it {I met her on my 18th birthday & now her & my 1/2 bro are part of our extended family} but sometimes I still feel like I was unwanted {I know I wasn't} but it's an issue a lot of adopted people have, it's not really something you can control.

5. Mickey Mouse club house is the worst cartoon on the planet! But Zane loves it so I watch it every. single. day. with him because I know it makes him happy.

6. I do not like milk chocolate very much, if I have a choice I will pick dark chocolate over milk any day! I think milk chocolate has a funny taste. {I will even chose semi-chocolate over milk!}

7. I cannot wait for The Hunger Games movie to come out this month!! I just bought our Cinetopia groupon that is going to pay for our tickets yesterday and I am so so so excited for it. I am even going to buy a shirt to wear to go see the movie in. You can help me pick which one if you go here.

8. I love baseball. I sometimes wish that I lived in Seattle instead of Portland so that I could have season tickets to the Mariner's because Portland is lame & doesn't have a baseball team anymore... we just got rid of them for the Soccer team {the Timbers}. I cannot tell you how upset I was when they got rid of our Beavers to bring in the Timbers! I am a Yankee fan through & through though and I always have been... I grew up on them {my dad has been a fan of them since he was 5 & would read about them in the newspaper} and I will always be a fan of them no matter what! Plus HELLO Derek Jeter has to be one of the hottest players of all time!

9. My dream vacation is to go to Greece, Italy & France. I have always wanted to go to those 3 places.

10. I would love to be a photographer but I am not good at it at all. I would love to take photography classes someday but we just can't afford them right now.

11. I hope that someday soon I get to meet all my favorite bloggers like; Chelsea: The Curly Cues, Amy: A Good Life, Lauren: Me and Mine, Mandy: A Sorta Fairytale, Jill: The Chronicles of Corbin, Amanda: Raising Reese, Chelsey: The Paper Momma, and many many more!!


Questions from Chelsea: 

1. If you could only shop one place for the rest of your life, where would it be?: Oh man that is hard but I would probably say GAP. They have great clothes and their prices aren't to ridiculously high.

2. What do you do to de-stress? Yoga? Wine? Wall punching?: ha ha no wall punching here. I really don't have anything except to just get into bed & pray then go to sleep. That usually helps.

3. What is the first lie you ever remember telling?: Oh man it was probably something about my brother doing it rather than me so I didn't get into trouble. But I really have no idea!

4. If you had to listen to one sound for the rest of your life, what would you choose?: The sound of my son & dad laughing. I never get tired of those 2 laughing at each other... both of their laughs are completely contagious and the best sounds in the world!!

5. Your house is on fire and you can only grab 3 things (all humans and pets are safely outside), what do you take?: My computer & external hard drive, camera, and some of Zane's baby clothes.

6. Would you ever wear pink jeans? How about pink maternity jeans?: oh yes! I think they are sooooo cute and I want a pair right now but just haven't gotten around to buying any yet.

7. Would you ever consider plastic surgery, if so, what would you do?: Yes. I would get a tummy tuck... it is my problem area and no matter how hard I try or what I try it won't go away {I constantly get asked if I am pregnant... totally rude I know!} so I actually plan of having one after I am done having children. I want to love my body again... it's been a huge struggle in my adult life. I don't talk about it much and I try to hide my pain from it but sometimes it's really hard.

8. What is something your kid/significant other/best friend does that drives you crazy?: ha ha well my husband and son both chew on the inside of their cheek. It is sooooo annoying and no matter how many times I tell my husband to stop he just won't stop.

9. What is the best meal that you can cook?: Well I am not the cook in the family by any means at all! My husband does most of the cooking but I can make some mean mac & cheese {no not the box kind, it's my aunts recipe & it's delicious!!}

10. Who was your first best friend?: Kelly Hogue... she lived next door to me and was a month younger than me.

11. If you could go back in time and change one decision in your life, what would it be?: Wow... I know exactly right off the top of my head what I would change. {I warn you it's not a pretty story!} I would not go out with one of my boyfriends... he was not a good person! He forced me into having sex with him {my first time} and ruined my 18th birthday party {by smoking pot out of an apple in my backyard when I had told him not too} and was just a very bad person! It was the worst decision of my entire life to ever become involved with him!!

I tag Jules, Allie, and Jenn. I am only tagging 3 people because I can't think of anyone else right now.

1. What is your favorite time of the year?:
2. How many kids do you want to have or do you have all the kids you are going to have?:

4. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?:
5. When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?:

Love, Chelsea said...

I share in your Harrp Potter and Hunger Games obsessions! I am so excited for the movie!! Also, I cannot believe anyone would ask you if you are pregnant, how rude! Sounds like the next meet-up is going to be in Portland so maybe we will all get to meet in real life!

Hi Libby I just found your blog through Twitter and so glad I did! I loved reading your birth story (I love reading them now that I have my own little one...such miracles!) and you did have a rough one! Thanks for sharing it, and I hope when you do have a next one it is not as difficult. I cannot wait for the Hunger Games movie either...my son loves Mickey Mouse as well...and I do not like milk chocolate either...I think it has a funny taste too! Dark chocolate all the way! ---New follower :)
