Ra Ra Random

So there are lots of getting to know you games floating around in the blog world. While I usually don't jump on board with the tagging and bloggy awards (if you do ...more power to ya), I thought it would be fun to answer some of the questions I have been tagged to. Let's be honest...I am home sick today stuck on the couch with nothing else to do. Hope you enjoy!

My girl Sarah tagged me and asked the following on her bloggy
{1} If you could go anywhere in the world, money not being an issue, where would you go and why?
I have always been fascinated with Fiji and would love to spend a week or two there in my own little hut. With KR of course :-)

{2} What's the craziest thing you've ever done?
hmmmm....I have to admit I am not one for wild and crazy. I bungee jumped once. Does that count?

{3} If you could have any car in the world what would you choose?
I am not really into fancy cars. Quite frankly, I don't get the need for them. I have always wanted a little red corvette. However, I would never splurge big on a car. I would splurge on a big SUV when I have a ton of kiddos and dogs to haul around in the back seat. The redneck country girl  in me would much rather have a big loaded pickup truck versus some little schmancy sports car.


{4} If you could have dinner with 3 people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
a. My dad's dad aka Papaw Wid. He is the only grandparent I never met. All my grandparents are still living and I am so blessed to have them in my life. I would have loved to have met my papaw too. I know my brother and I would have been so special to him just as he would have been to us.
b. Oprah Winfrey - because I think she is one of the geniuses of our generations. I would just love to be in her presence to feel her strong spiritual energy.
c. Jesus Christ - i don't think this one needs an explanation

{5} Least favorite chore.
Laundry! I hate everything about it. You have to sort it, load it, change it out, fold it and then put it away. Ugh. Thank goodness KR does most of the laundry duties around here and doesn't gripe a gripe.

{6} What's the best vacation you've been on?
A cruise with Kev to the Bahamas summer of 2009. It was our first "big" trip together and our first cruise. The whole trip was fabulous - the weather, the food, the drinks, the scenery! It was on the back of the cruise ship that I knew I was in love with him. Well I knew there was something about him the first day I met him, but that's a story for a different day. 

{7} What was your first concert?
The first big concert in an arena I went to was Brooks & Dunn with Martina McBride and Clay Walker at Rupp Arena. I remember my mama took me and I got to bring a friend for an overnight out of town trip. We stayed in a hotel downtown Lexington. I thought I was so cool.

(8} What is your food weakness?
I am a sucker for ice cream. I probably have it every day of my life. Now it may just be a spoonful, but I still eat it daily. The only time I don't eat it is when it is not in the freezer because I don't have self-control when it comes to sweets. None!

{9} What's your favorite part about blogging?
Definitely meeting all the amazing gals and having such a supportive community of women. It blows my mind when I sit down and think about it. It is a very powerful network and I am so glad I am a part of it.

{10} How many first kisses have you had?
I do not kiss and tell :-) However, the first time Kev kissed me I thought fireworks were going off in the sky. True story.

{11} What would your dream job be?
I have two.
1. A country music superstar.
I can not even begin to tell you how much I love country music. It is music to my soul. It is all I have ever been raised on. I feel like each song tells is a story about my background. Sometimes I sing it so loud in my car that I give myself a headache.
Just call me Carrie Underwood or Miranda Lambert 
2. I would have a house on tons of land with a big insulated barn and just save, rescue and adopt doggies. I mean as many dogs as I could take and shower them with love and affection.  I think this is somewhat of a more realistic dream job. I could totally see Kev and I doing this on a small scale in the future.  

Miss Ashley also tagged me and asked these:
{1} What was the last thing you bought?
Makeup. I went to Macy's yesterday and tore the MAC counter up. I also went to Sephora and did a little damage there. I was out of everything.

{2} What is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning
Already dreading the gym. I don't know why i wake up dreading it. I am not a morning person at all. Don't mess with me until I get at least 2 cups of coffee in me.

{3} What did you do for your last birthday
A combination of time with family, girlfriends and  KR.
Well you can read all about that here and here.

{4} What was the last thing you ate?
 I had a bowl of cereal for lunch....it was the only thing that sounded appetizing

{5}  If you had to choose between Facebook and Blogger? which one?
hmmm...that is a hard one. lately i am spending much more time on blogger than facebook.

{6} Name three things that make you happy.
That is easy.
Family
KR
and
The doggies

(7) What is one of your resolutions for 2012?
Kind of a lame one, but to get better committed to my gym routine. I can always talk myself out of going.

{8} What would you do if you were given one million dollars?
A combination of taking care of my family, pampering myself a little, investing, donating, building a dog shelter and taking an overindulgent vacation.

(9} What would your theme song be when walking into a room?
that would just depend on the day and the mood. there is no way i could pick just one.

(10)What is something you wish you could change?
About myself? Well, that is they way I will interpret it. I wish i didn't care so much about making other people happy. I spread myself too thin doing that sometimes and sacrifice my own happiness. Hey, but we are all a work in progress.  

(11) What is your favorite television show.
Currently, The Good Wife on NBC. I am obsessed.

If ya'll have any other questions you just let me know.
I would be more than happy to answer.
