I've Been Tagged

The gorgeous Megan from I Made My Bed... tagged me in one of these little "getting to know you posts." And, I have to be honest, I LOVE these! They're a fun way to get to know random things about fellow bloggers AND who doesn't love when a blog topic just lands in your lap?

So, here are the rules: 
-You must post the rules
-Post 11 Fun Facts about yourself 
-Answer the 11 questions that the tagger posted for you in their post & then create 11 questions to ask the people you've tagged
-Tag 11 people and link them in your post
-Let them know you have tagged them

11 Fun Facts About Kristin:
I had a really hard time coming up with 11 I got in touch with the people who know me better than anyone and enlisted their help. I have to say, it was hilarious reading what they came up with.
Here's just some of what they had to say...

Husband: "You just learned how to burp.
It's true, up until a few months ago I didn't know how to burp, which made drinking pop and/or beer really difficult and I'm a beer drinking, burping machine. So ladylike.

Mother: "You can count in Greek.
Yup, I can count to 10 in Greek. My grandpa was very patient with me one summer when I decided it was my goal to learn to count in Greek. I also spent a summer trying to write left handed.

Father: "You had 2 jockeys as childhood imaginary friends, Jimmy Alarco and Trotter Ray."
I wish so badly that I remembered what those two looked like. 

Brother: "The ability to consume more Twisted Tea than any human should"
Both my husband and brother brought this one up, so I had to include it. I really LOVE Twisted Tea. It gives most people gut-rut after 2-3 but I can drink those babies like water! Not necessarily something to be proud of, but it's the truth. 

Best Friend: "You like it warm and sunny and are handy with a bedazzler." 
Two facts, I know, but both are very true. I LOVE summer, the hotter and sunnier the better. 
And, I used to LOVE my bedazzler. 

Husband: "You're afraid of birds." 
A lot of people think it's dumb but it is a legit fear. Birds absolutely horrify me!  It's bad. They're scary. 

Father: "You peed on the doctor at birth" 
Yup, that's me. Came in to the world with a classy bang!

Best Friend: "You're an expert on 'Friends' trivia"
Beyond obsessed with that show and know more about it than one person probably should.

Brother: "You eat baby food"
Yeah, it's true. I love baby food. Not the gross kinds like turkey or peas but I love the fruit ones. Bananas and Hawaiian Delight are my favorites. 

Mother: "You were a photographer for the University of Minnesota newspaper." 
This is one of those experiences that I am extremely proud of. Got hired by the MN Daily as a Freshman! 

Husband: "You're obsessed with Tom Hanks." 
I really am soooo obsessed with Tom Hanks. It's hard for me to even describe how much I love him.

11 Questions from Megan: 
1. If you could travel anywhere for 10 days, would spend all 10 days in one location or 10 days at different locations? Where?
I would hands-down go to Greece. I would stay in Greece all 10 days but travel around the country.

2.Favorite accessory (don't say phone)
My wedding ring. Sorry, boring answer,but it's true! 

3. Favorite Breakfast food?
Eggs Benedict! But I sub-out the ham for a sausage patty. SO good!

4. Do you really use recipes/ideas from Pinterest?
I have made probably 15 recipes from Pinterest. OBSESSED! 

5. Biggest pet peeve to fellow bloggers?
Not having your e-mail set up! I hate seeing noreply@blogger cuz then I can't respond to your comments!

6. Favorite US City other than your home area?
Easy, NEW YORK CITY, hands down. Obsessed. 

7. Do you use cash (daily, not event related?)
Almost never. 

8. What celebrity would you like to be and why?
This was tough...but I think I'd be Carrie Underwood. She's uber-talented, uber-gorgeous and seems super down-to-earth and sweet. 

9. If you could have a chef cook all your meals would you use him/her or still cook yourself. 
I LOVE cooking! I would still cook, but could I use the chef to grocery shop and clean up afterwards?

10. What website (other than GR or Blogger) would you say you never go a single day without viewing it? 
Facebook. Lame but true. 

11. Single or Married ladies...what is your best advice to the single ladies?
Don't get involved with committed's wrong and if they cheat on their current wife/gf they'll cheat on you too. 

OK, now that you know every little thing about are my questions for you ladies: 
1. What's your middle name? Any special meaning behind it?
2. If you could have one special talent {that you don't currently have} what would it be?
3. Where is your dream vacation? {Don't cheat...somewhere you've never been!}
4. If you had to get rid of ALL of your makeup except for one item...what would you keep?
5. Guilty Pleasure? {Movie, Food, TV Show, Song?}
6. If you could banish one celebrity to an island where they would never be heard from again, who would it be?
7. Who is your favorite 'Friends' character?
8. Do you have a lucky number? What is it? 
9. If you could meet one blogger in real life, who would  it be?
10. Backstreet Boys or NSYNC?
11. What's your greatest fear or phobia?

I had to laugh at your first fact because I'm 26 and STILL don't know how to burp! I've had so many people try to teach me and I just can't do it! I don't drink pop, but I totally understand the difficult/painful beer drinking! Too funny!
