01. My favorite movie (of all time) is Gone with the Wind. I love Scarlett.
02. I (also) love to read. My favorite genre is YA fiction. The last time I went book shopping my daughter asked why all the books I like to read look like they’re for teens. :o
03. I was 10 the last time I dressed up for Halloween. My mom made my sister and I wear matching purple Treasure Troll (yes, Treasure Troll) costumes. I think she hated us, lol.
04. I am terrified of flying roaches. So much, that I’ve been known to wake up my 10 year old asking (ok, begging) him to kill them.
05. I’ve had a diary journal ever since I can remember. When I was 16, my mom read them and I got so mad that I threw them all away. I kind of wish I’d kept them.
06. I am the oldest child (which means I’m kind of a control freak, but also weirdly calm when things are complete chaos).
07. I look way younger than I actually am; most people think I’m about 20 (I’m not). Not too long ago, someone asked me if I was still in high school. Ha. Though most days I still feel like I’m 16 years old, so maybe that’s why?
08. I went to three different elementary schools, three different middle schools, and three different high schools. This is why I am so socially awkward. 
09. I love making lists. It makes me feel super organized and responsible. Never mind the fact that they usually end up lost in my purse. For those few minutes, I feel like a total grown up.
10. Sometimes I want to pack up my boy friend, kids, and dog and just travel the world. What will we live off of, you say? The universe will provide!
11. I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.  

11 Questions Liz asked:

01. What is your earliest memory?
In my earliest memory, I am missing some one. I won’t go into more detail that that, but I kind of feel like it’s the story of my life. 
02. If Ryan Gosling & Joseph Gordon Levitt both proposed, who would you pick? {you have to choose one or the other & you can't say neither}
Ryan Gosling because a) just look at him b) I love all of those ‘hey, girl’ post card things and c) Joseph Gordon Levitt looks like he’s 15 (imo).
 03. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In five years I see myself being done with school, having a “real” job (that I actually like), and being the best mom and girlfriend I can be. (Wow, am I exciting or what?)
 04. If money wasn't an issue, what's one thing you would purchase?
That’s easy: a beach house.
05. What was the last vacation you went on?
I don’t think I’ve ever been on a proper vacation. The last one turned into me living in that country for four years. That still counts, right? 
06. First kiss?
My first kiss was super awkward. I had no idea what to do and just stood there with my mouth open. I was 12 and it was awesome, lol. 
07. If you could trade places with anyone for a day, who would it be & why?
I would trade places with someone my age that does not have children. Not because I hate my kids, but I always wonder what child free people do with all of their time. 
08. What do you do to relax?
I my perfect world the answer to this would be read. In the real world, I clean. 
09. Favorite cocktail? {or non-alcoholic beverage, if you don't drink}
I don’t drink alcohol, but my favorite beverage is agua de Tamarindo 
10. Is there anything you felt strongly about when you were younger which you now have a totally different view on as an adult?.
I guess that every.single.thing is not the end of the world. When I was younger, it seemed that the smallest things were so serious and important and now I know that they really aren’t. Don’t get me wrong, some things really are like life and death situations, but most things end up not mattering as much as we think they will. 
11. Who is the one person you can tell anything to?
My boyfriend, aww.
Ps. So. I wasn't actually tagged for this, but I decided to do it anyway. I used Liz's questions.
