Holy Moley!

I've been tagged by the awesome Poison who's blog is one of my favorites!! She's a rock star!! Check out her blog here!

Here are the rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things yourself.
3. Answer the questions the tag­ger set for you in their post.
4. Create 11 new ques­tions for the peo­ple you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them that you've tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tag­ging sec­tion about ‘you are tagged if you are read­ing this.’ blah blah blah, you actually have to tag 11 peeps!

OKAY HERE WE GO. 11 Things You Never Really Wanted to Know about Me.

1) I am obsessed with the color Red. My childhood bedroom was beige and one wallwas wallpapered and when I was 12, I ripped down all the wallpaper, moved out ALL my furniture and forced my parents to paint my bedroom fire engine red. I don't have any red walls in my new house but I had red living room furniture, pops of red in the kitchen and red bedsheets!

2) I was almost a professional bassoonist. I started looking for colleges in 2004/2005 before I graduated high school and I had my heart set on going to music school. It was a spontaneous last minute decision to go to school for nursing!

3) My favorite movie is Labyrinth. David Bowie's package works for me. I also know just about every word... and own the soundtrack.

4) Bulldogs are my favorite kind of dogs. And someday when I live in a house, I'm going to have a whole bunch of bullies!

5) I hate talking on the phone. I have a cell phone and a work phone and a home phone...and I really wish I didn't have to have any of them. I just don't like it!! You can just text, blog me, e-mail or facebook if you want to talk to me, haha.

6) I'm obsessed with travelling. I've been to Germany, Ireland, and in February 2012 (just a few weeks!) I'm going to visit my little sister in Italy!

7) I love romance novels. I have just tons of paperback novels and books on my kindle. The dirtier the better, hahah.

8) I love cleaning. It's true, I'm a freak. I worked in housekeeping for several years while going to college and also in highschool. I had private clients that I would clean for. And I love when everything is in its place, shined up and smelling fresh!! Can't stand a mess in any way, shape or form.

9) I love crazy patients. Seriously, the crazier the better. Psych is totally one of my loves. I have a lot of experience working with psych patients of all ages and stages and levels of crazy. They make my day!

10) My dad used to call me Peabug as a kid. And my father's family calls me Katebug (to this day). I don't know where the nickname came from but it's something that's followed me!

11) My favorite thing to eat is mushrooms. I buy 4 pounds of sliced mushrooms a week. And I eat them all. I'm not kidding. Mushrooms. Yum.

Here are my questions from Jen (Poison)!

1 - What do you want done with your body after you die?
I'll get back to you on this one. I'm terrified of dying...

2 - Would you rather receive a practical gift you need or something silly that means something special?

Hard one! I'm a practical girl at heart...but I do like to be suprised with something cute and silly. But at the end of the day I have to say practical.

3 - How many pets do you have and what kinds?

No pets. :( In Febuary 2010 I opened my home to a rescue bulldog but unfortunately I like on the third floor of a condo and she was an older dog, not to mention weighing 65 pounds...it was very hard for her to go up and down and she almost fell a couple of times. And when I was gone during the day the neighbors complained she barked and I got letters from the assocation. So she had to go back. I was devestated. Her name was Shea! I still miss her so badly. I cry all the time missing her.

4 - If money weren't an issue, what would you buy?
Hybrid SUV, buy a big house with a fantastic kitchen, a personal trainer

5 - What is one thing you plan on doing before 2012 is over?

Visiting Taryn in CANADA. Which means hitting my halfway goal. GET READY GIRL.

6 - How did you spend your last birthday?
Working. 3-11 then 11-7 double shift.

7 - What are you hoping your next NSV will be? (Non Scale Victory)
Fitting into my new ModCloth dress

8 - What is your favorite healthy snack?
Sabra Supremely Spicy HUMMUS!

9 - Do you like crunchy or creamy peanut butter?

Crunchy! I can't stand the texture of creamy!

10 - Do you wear your shoes inside your house?
No! And you can't either! Na na na booboo! I want clean floors!

11 - What kind of car do you drive?
2006 Ford Focus ZX3 (2dr hatchback) in...RED!
