Getting to Know You Tag

My new friend April from My Captivating Images tagged me in a Getting to Know You tag. I thought this would be a fun thing to do. I've been trying to expand my blog from just creations to encompass more of my life.

First, 11 random facts about me:
1. I love penguins! I think they are just adorable. We have tons of penguin things in the house like a penguin cookie jar.
2. My "big toe" is actually really small. It's smaller than most of my other toes and it's totally weird.
3. I love naps! It just works for me to refresh in the middle of the day.
4. I don't like a lot of things that other people like for example avocados (even though I'm from California), Dave Matthews Band and The Simpson's to name a few. People think I'm odd.
5. I carry a thermos of ice water around with me almost everywhere I go and it makes a little noise that I find a little embarrassing.
6. I'm super clumsy. I trip over my own feet and ram into things all the time.
7. I just discovered a love for YouTube. I used to watch it every now and then but now I'm obsessed with watching tutorial videos.
8. I wanted 6 kids before I had kids. I'm not so sure anymore.
9. I get warm really easily. I often wear short sleeved shirts in the winter.
10. I'm obsessed with Kawaii (cute) things.
11. I enjoy couponing, bargain hunting and getting a deal.

Now I need to answer April's questions:

1. What is the number one thing on your bucket list?
Go to Paris. Sigh...one day!


2. What was your favorite childhood toy?
Magic Nursery Babies. They were like Cabbage Patch Dolls but they came in a hospital gown and hat so you didn't know what gender they were. You dipped this card thing in plastic to dissolve this papery stuff and it said "Congrats! You have a baby girl/boy!" I had like 6 of them.


3. What is your favorite book?
Eat Pray Love. I love Elizabeth Gilbert's view on religion! It was really refreshing to me. I also love her writing style and sense of humor.


4. Do you prefer a busy city or a calm country area?
I like the Suburbs. I think I might be the only one out there. I don't like to be too crowded or have to fight to get where I'm going but I also don't like being too far from civilization. I like being a 10 min drive from the grocery store, restaurants, etc...

5. Who is your role model and why?
I don't really have one. There are people who inspire me like Ghandi and Mother Theresa but I don't know that they are role models.


6. What is your special talent? (everyone has one, even if it seems small, it is not!)
I multitask really well

7. What do you do to relax when you have alone time?
Read, craft, watch a movie

8. If you could live anywhere, where would you live and why?
I have no idea. Maybe Monterrey because the pace is so calm.

9. What is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?
My husband cleans the house. :)

10. What is your favorite time of day?
Bedtime for the kids? ;)

11. If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
Does Queen of the Universe count?


And now I have to give 11 questions:
1. What did you want to be when you grew up?
2. Where was your favorite vacation?
3. What's your favorite store to shop at?
4. If you could get one thing for yourself for free, what would you pick?
5. What is your favorite comfort food?
6. What is a tradition that you want to pass on to your children?
7. What's your dream pet?
8. Who is your celebrity crush?
9. What's your favorite scent?
10. What hobby do you wish you could get paid for?
11. What's your favorite TV show right now?

I'm supposed to tag 11 people to do this but I'm not going to. If you'd like to do this tag so I can get to know you better, I would LOVE that. Leave me a link in the comments section and I'll come check it out!
