i was tagged!

I was tagged by Meghan at Shine On in a fun little blog game!

Tag! You're it!

1. You must post the rules.
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
4. Tag eleven people and link them on your post
5. Let them know you've tagged them!

Facts About Me!

1. I am extremely double-jointed. Especially my elbows and fingers. This has always fascinated people...except for photographers. When I was on Storm Squad and had to have pictures taken, the photographer would always tell me to fix my arms so they didn't look broken.

2. I am the proud godmother of this little pup named Finley.

3. I've worn a beard for an extensive amount of time in front of 19,000 people. (For the playoffs, of course!)

4. I've been in the pants of Jared from the Subway commercials. (That sounds so weird. Explanation: I had to stand in them at the State Fair with a couple of other girls. Jared was a nice guy.)

5. I've had the same best friend since I was 11. We're both named Ashley/Ashlee.

6. This is my 6th year coaching basketball. I get intense.

7. I could eat chocolate ice cream with every meal, at any time of day. 

8. I can sing every song from every High School Musical. Don't judge.

9. My last name is my mom's first name. 

10. My favorite character in The Hunger Games is Finnick Odair. Probably because I love complicated characters who aren't always what they seem.

11. One of my favorite things about my wedding was that my mom gave me the veil that she wore in her wedding. It was so special to be able to wear it 28 years after her and know that their marriage is still going strong. It also worked out that it had aged to match the color of my dress perfectly. :)

Questions from Meghan
{one} what are you most looking forward to in 2012?
Our 1st anniversary coming up in March. :) Summer, just because I love it and also I got a super nice body board for Christmas from my man. Can't wait to use it! Oh and one of my best friends is getting married in August - all of the festivities involving that are gonna be awesome.

{two} what is the first thing you notice about people?
Their demeanor - if they're quiet, cheerful, serious, outgoing, etc. 

{three} where is the furthest you've ever traveled from home?
Hawaii! The most spur-of-the-moment, amazing, surprise trip ever! And I loved it. Except for the ridiculously long plane rides and the loss of my husband's wedding ring.

{four} what's your favorite sport and why?
Oh man. This is a hard question for me because I love sports so much. Although basketball is my favorite sport to play and coach, and hockey holds a special place in my heart - baseball is my favorite sport in general. I've loved it my entire life and am utterly devoted to my Red Sox.

{five} what's the numero uno most-played song on your ipod?
Well, I can't just look that up because I don't have iTunes on my computer, haha. I know, weird. My iPod doesn't have a home. But I bet that it's either a Coldplay song like Green Eyes or The Scientist, or Magic by BOB since that was our surprise dance song for the wedding and I listened to it a LOT when we were choreographing it and practicing! 

{six} what's your least favorite chore?
Absolutely doing the dishes. Even if it's just scraping them off, rinsing, and putting them in the dishwasher. I strongly dislike it. 

{seven} what is one of your favorite quotes?
This quote was used in church yesterday and it always convicts me: 
"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose."
- Jim Elliot

{eight} coke or pepsi?
Neither, but I do like Cherry Coke Zero and Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi. I love it when drink machines have Diet Coke and Cherry Coke and I can mix them. So good.

{nine} if you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?
I'm just gonna go with what first popped into my head: Jesus walking on water and Peter walking out to meet Him. When I was little I would always ask my Dad to tell me that story. It's always intrigued me and I think it's an amazing picture of the Christian journey - failures and all.

{ten} if you could be any fictional character, who would it be?
This is a tie between Princess Leia from Star Wars and Princess Jasmine from Aladdin. I cannot choose between my favorite princesses.

{eleven} what do you miss most about being a kid?
Playing in the woods with my brother. We were so blessed to have places to build forts, climb trees, and have nerf gun fights. Now the town of Cary has taken over those woods, but I think about it every time I drive through where we used to live.
