11 Things About Me!


My friend Ali from Embrace the Struggle tagged me in one of her recent posts, so I'm sharing 11 things about myself and answering her 11 questions to me.  Next, I'll ask 11 new questions of my blogging buddies, in hopes that they (and all of you!) will join the fun!

Here goes:

11 Things About Me:

  1. I love to shoot! .50 Cal, Shotguns and hopefully soon I will try archery!
  2. I was in Marching Band AND Theatre when I was in High School.
  3. I love NJ, the Shore, its proximity to the city, but I don't love its cost of living and overcrowding. 
  4. I think I love to play in my daughter's Ikea Circus Tent more than she does...don't judge me.
  5. I was a Girl Scout!
  6. Going to Australia and checking out the Great Barrier Reef is on my bucket list!
  7. I have lived the majority of my life in the United States, however I am Puerto Rican, and I credit that with my love for tropical weather and ultimate loathing for SNOW!
  8. I wanted to be Marine Biologist growing up and I still have this passion to one day become an Underwater Photographer!
  9. I have a guilty pleasure, and that guilty pleasure is: Dancing with the Stars!
  10. I used to be a social butterfly, but since having my daughter I love staying home!
  11. I am allergic to dogs!! Yup even the "Hypo-allergenic" ones.....brushing out my dogs coat causes my hands to break out in hives.

My answers to the 11 questions asked by Ali:

  1. What's your #1 pet peeve? Babies (infants) at late night movies in the movie theatre!!! Those little precious babies should be asleep peacefully at home, not shrieking to the sounds of explosives in an action film!
  2. What facial feature do you find most attractive on the opposite sex? Eyes!
  3. Are you a clutterer or a neat freak? Clutter :(, but I try to minimalize it.
  4. Which subject were you the worst at in high school? Pre-Calculus...HANDS DOWN, I hated it.
  5. Dogs or cats? Definitely dogs.
  6. Who was your favorite child star growing up? I loved Saved by the Bell...soo Mark-Paul Gosselaar aka Zack Morris! 
  7. What skill do you still want to master? Sewing clothing!
  8. If you had unlimited money and time and didn't have to work, what would you do daily? Send my daughter to the best schools, spend edu-vacations with her, and continue making things for Heavenly Blossoms, except all proceeds would goto my church and various organizations!
  9. Who is your favorite cartoon character? Rainbow Brite.
  10. Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Introvert, mostly.
  11. Which social cause interests you the most? At-risk children and teenagers, who have the potential to do and be great, but lack the necessary resources to get there!
