  4. Give your nominees 11 new questions to answer.

11 Things About Me:
  1. I love music from Adele to Poison to Carrie Underwood to Celtic Woman.
  2. I was raised Church of God and married a Catholic.
  3. I have a 70 mile round-trip commute.
  4. I have donated my hair to Locks of Love twice.
  5. I have participated in March of Dimes, March for Babies since before I had kids and lead my own team 2 years - we raised over $3000 in those 2 years.
  6. I have visited 2 other countries - Canada & Mexico.
  7. I have been kicked in the face by a horse.
  8. I am an oldest sibling.
  9. I once took a 3 week trip driving to Montana with my horse & primitive camping.
  10. I always have more planned than is feasible - probably nothing new to my followers!
  11. I have only owned 3 vehicles - a Ford Taurus Wagon, a Chevy Lumina, and a Chevy Trailblazer - and I paid them all off.
Summer's 11 Questions for Me:

  1. What inspired you to start blogging??  I love to write and people tell me all the time I should write about this or that so I thought a blog would be a good place to feel things out and decide if anyone besides family had an interest in what I have to say.  I also was looking to find other women who enjoy the same things as I do and make new friends outside of my family.
  2. All time favorite food??  It's a very close tie between my mom's lasagna and her apple crumb pie!
  3. Do you have pets?? What do you have??  I have a horse, pony, goat, cat and two dogs.  Can't imagine kids without animals!
  4. Do you Pinterest??  Yes, it is terribly good stuff and could suck up my life easily.  It has replaced all those years of tearing pages out of catalogs and magazines - better for my housekeeping at least.
  5. Shows you enjoy watching??  Big Brother, Criminal Minds, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team, anything on Food Network - diverse, right?
  6.  What did you want to be when you grew up??  And are you doing it??  A veterinarian but everybody said I should have been a lawyer.  Nope - life and reality of money happened but I am happy with the choices I made.
  7. What is your favorite movie and why??  "The Man from Snowy River" has always been it - a strong, good-looking man, gorgeous horses, beautiful scenery, great clothes, drama, a strong, independent woman, love wins - what's not to love?
  8. What is one thing you do every day that makes you happy??  Hug & kiss my hubby & kids every morning before we part ways and every night before we go to bed.  Everything else can be wrong with the day and that is what keeps me going and reminds me what its all about.
  9.  What is your biggest pet peeve??  Hmmmm...laziness in general.  People are so quick to look to someone else to solve any problem they have and not take ownership.
  10. Do you like twitter or face book better??  I have grown to like Twitter better.  I have FaceBook only for family right now and do enjoy the ability to share family pictures but Twitter is much lower maintenance and I don't feel like I have to read everything everyone posted every day.
  11. What would your dream vacation consist of??  My mom just came back from it - a trip to Ireland with the women I know would appreciate it.

Loved reading your randoms and answers. WOW!! kicked in the face by a horse. speechless.... I love all the music you listed. I think the only music I don't really care for is rap but then again I like eminem. I myself am an oldest sibling. I have quite a few pets and would have more if we had land of our own. It was nice getting to know you better and look forward to reading your future posts :)
