11 Things

I was tagged by Carly of Texas Lovebirds to participate in this 11 Things post! Here goes nothing! 

1) Post these rules.
2) Post a picture of yourself and 11 random things.
3) Answer the questions set in the original post.
4) Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
5) Go to their blog and tell them you've tagged them.  


1) I was born on my mother's birthday. No matter how hard my husband I tried to conceive a January 11 baby to make a 3rd generation birthday share happen, it never did. We were destined to have summer/fall babies. 

2) I don't watch sports, but I REALLY want to. I think it's the mother of boys thing. Suddenly I desperately want a team to root for for Football and Baseball. Hockey, too. Ritchie is totally against this. 

3) I go through phases where I want a drastically different life. Same people (meaning Ritchie and the boys - obviously!) just different locale. Some small farm town, London, Australia, the East Coast, Washington - basically I just want to be anywhere but here sometimes. I'd like to pick up and move, get to know a whole new place and lifestyle, live a grand adventure. And then, since CA is nothing to sneeze at, I'd probably like to come back. Unless I happened to find some other magical place that was 80 degrees in winter. 

4) I almost never like my hair. If it's blonde, I want it brown.
 If it's long, I want it short. Bangs, I want them gone. 

5) I have a huge sweet tooth. I'll eat pie and cake and cookies all day. 

6) When I was little I wanted to be an actress. I used to be in Junior Theater and daydream about being on Broadway. I still have Broadway singing sessions in my car, but I don't think I'm winning a Tony anytime soon. 

7) I wear my heart on my sleeve and am very trusting of others. 
Sometimes this bodes well for me, other times, it doesn't.  

8) I don't like art, unless it's photography of my family or some sort of object (oars, anyone?) 

9) I watch movies AND TV shows over and over again. I love the comfort of knowing what's going to happen and get a lot of anxiety watching things when I don't know how they end.  

10) I always thought I'd have a house full of girls, but I LOVE being a mom to two little lads. 
I think the universe really knows what it's doing sometimes. 

11) I'm a believer of karma. What goes around, comes around so I really try to be 
kind and truly happy for others, even if it's hard sometimes. 
1. What's your favorite color?  
Blues and greens are the colors I'm most drawn to, both for wearing and for decorating with. 

2. What would your "last meal" be? 
Oh man. I enjoy way too many foods to answer this question. I want to say a really good steak and baked potato. And a freaking HUGE Diet Coke. 

3. What's your biggest pet peeve? 
Hmm.. I don't have a lot of pet peeves. I guess when people are mean? Lame answer, sorry. 

4.  What movie character (not the star playing them!) do you think you're most like? 
Man, Carly. Why you gotta make me think to answer these?! I would say I'm most like Monica from FRIENDS. I know it's not a movie. She's a little neurotic and yet, still lovable :) 

5. Do you have kids? If you do, do you want more? If you don't, how many would you like?
I have two handsome boys. It's up for discussion on whether or not we're having more, but I do think we're done with having biological children. If we have more, they would be adopted. 

6. If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
See above! It changes all the time. Lately, I want a farm house in the middle of nowhere. 

7. Tell us something about you that we don't already know. 
I have a celebrity crush on Tom Hanks. I know, I know. He's no Channing Tatum - but he's so talented and I grew up watching Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail so, Tom Hanks it is. 
Oh, and Patrick Dempsey!! Although, that one is probably more self explanatory. 

8. What kind of tv shows are on your DVR?
Holy sheet. I have SO many. Teen Mom (1&2) and 16 and Pregnant are up there with my favs. Biggest Loser, Ellen, Secret Life of the American Teenager, Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother, Private Practice, Parenthood, Desperate Housewives, So You Think You Can Dance. Okay, so I watch too much TV. 

9. What is your guilty pleasure?
TV. And cookies, ice cream and brownies. And manicures! 

10. Are you a morning or night person?
NIGHT!!  Basically you don't want to talk to me in the morning unless I got a lot of sleep. A LOT. 

11. If you had to live in a reality tv show, which would it be? 
Real World. You know, because it's so real. Nah, I think Biggest Loser! My own trainer (who looks like Bob Harper) and nutritionist?! Yes, please. Only, I would beg them not to make me put on spandex and step on a scale in front of America. I would also request some sweets in the house. 



1. What is your dream vacation?
2. If you could meet any celebrity (living or dead) who would it be and why?
3. What is your favorite blog to read? 
4. What would your ideal day consist of?
5. Show us a picture of your dream living room. (some Pinterest fun for you!) 
6. If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
7. Where is your favorite place to buy clothes for yourself? Your kids?
8. What is your favorite beverage?
9. What jewelry do you wear everyday?
10. Favorite movie and TV show?
11. Tell us one bucket list item for you!

You watch Parenthood?! My husband & I LOVE that show. Have you heard the rumors that this season was the last? Makes me super sad.

Patrick and Kimberly Gillette said...

Whoa, it BETTER NOT BE THE LAST SEASON of Parenthood! That would break my heart. Also, Jamie, you know me, and this type of thing is so not my forte. I may take a stab at it, but no promises. I can't even keep up with a once a month post about my growing babe. Loved reading yours, though! :)
