11 Things... Tagged and Bagged...

So, I am maybe one of the world's worst in doing email/blog posts about answering
questions about yourself, but I'm feelin it today. One of my besties, Rachel tagged
me in her post she did so what the heck, let's do this thang!

Here are the rules:

1. Post these rules.2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.3. Answer the questions 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 you’ve tagged them.

6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people.

So... here we go.

1. I HATE possums. Despise their being. I think they are satanic little creatures that roam
the earth that may have come straight from Hell. And yes, I deliberately hit them with
my car if I have the chance.

2. I was issued my second passport in 2007 and made a goal to go to a different country
every year that the passport is valid. 10 years. In 5 years I have visited 4 countries
(Italy, Venezuela, Guatemala, Mexico) and have 6 left to go!!

3. I LOATHE the smell/taste of mint. I can't chew mint gum and can barely brush
my teeth with mint flavored toothpaste. It honestly makes my throat close up and want to gag
when I smell it. If you are chewing mint gum and especially spearmint near me PLEASE
don't breath on me or I may walk away.

4. If I could be anything I wanted to be I would chose a singer/songwriter/rocker.
I LOVE good music and all the emotions it brings out. To be able to do that successfully
every day of your life and have people respect and admire you for amazing pipes the Lord
blessed you with would be a dream come true.

5. I love Italian food. I think if given the choice I could eat it every day of the week and never
get tired of it.

6. I love the words "Milk" and "Moist." Weird, right? I know. I love the way they sound
when you say them slow.

7. I don't like Birthday cake or Icing! Yep, I said it. I always got those big
chocolate chip cookies for my birthday and still do. Cake kind of grosses me out.

8. I don't eat the ends of things. Like for example take a chicken finger. I realize that you
do have to start at one end, but I don't finish. The ends gross me out. French fries
are the same way. Start at one, but don't finish on the other.

9. Last fall I met the Executive Producer of The Today Show!! Talked with him, got pictures
with him and personally sent him my resume. Working at The Today Show would probably
fall second into dream jobs after being a Rocker!

10. I love purses and make-up. Two of my favorite things to indulge myself with. Have
loved both of these things since being a little girl.

11. My kitty cat, Harley (that all my friends hate) sleeps in between my legs every night
and I love it!

My Questions to Answer:

1. What are you wearing right now?

A white waffle robe. No make-up. Hair in clip.

2. If you could move anywhere in the world, where would you move?

Oh gosh. Just one place? So many different places to go and experience before
I can answer this. But, with my limited knowledge and experiences I would say Italy.
What an amazing, romantic, historical place! ahhhh, yes!

3. Who is your celeb crush?

You know, I watch a lot of movies and get into all the celeb gossip, but I don't have just
one person that I'm obsessed with. But, a few of my loves would be David Beckham,
John Krasinski, Ryan Gosling, and Adam Levine.

4. What is a beauty product you couldn’t live without? (i.e. mascara or chapstick)

Seriously?? Just one product? My chest is getting tight... ha.
Man.. this is hard. Ok, I can't... here is top 3.
Lip gloss

5. Do you think you are high maintenance or low maintenance? Why?

Some would tell you high. But, honestly I think not. Do I like nice things? Yes, of course.
But, I feel like I am a grounded person that tries my hardest to keep my priorities
straight and in line with being a Christ-follower. I do have to check myself often and ask
myself questions to see where my motives are, but I am very laid back... easy going... and
always drama free. Hate drama and caddy people. Ask Alison.

6. Would you rather have to run a marathon and a half marathon on consecutive days or be stuck on “It’s a Small World” for 5 hours?

Ha! Oh my word this is comical. I don't exercise people. I try and I go through phases where
I do (normally in spring for upcoming swimsuits) but never consistently worked out. So,
without a doubt I would say be stuck on It's a small world. Bring on these creepy little

7. What is your hands down, all time favorite movie?

Cant' answer this one. I don't have an all time fave.
Movies I quote from often are Anchor Man, and Dumb and Dumber.

8. If you were on Death Row, what would be your last meal?

Penne Pasta with Italian sausage tossed in a marinara sauce with garlic cheese bread
and a coke or sweet tea. For dessert... homemade chocolate chip cookies.

9. What is your guilty pleasure?

For food... Recess's Peanut Butter Eggs!!!! Fave candy of all time. Hands down.
Other things... make-up, purses, clothes.

10. Do you wash your hair everyday?

LOL! Another comical question for me. Heck NO I don't wash my hair every day. I wash
my hair two times a week and use dry-shampoo in between and my hair thanks me for it.
My hair looks the most fabulous when dirty.

11. Do you prefer to text or talk on the phone?

TEXT!!! I'm not a phone talker. Ask any of my friends... this may be the most frustrating thing
about me as a friend. I hate the phone. I would much rather see your beautiful face in person
over dinner/lunch/coffee/house. I have found Hey-Tell (app for iphone) very
useful though. I can hear your voice, but still carry on what I'm doing without being tied
down to a long phone conversation.

My questions for fellow friends:

1. Birthdays. Love them or hate them.

2. Get your purse/gym bag: What are the first five things you pull out?

3. What is the one meal you can make better than anyone else?

4. You get one wish. No restrictions. What is it?

5. Cake or Pie?

6. What’s your secret talent?

7. Early bird or night owl?

8. Biggest pet peeve?

9. What’s your favorite weird food combination?

10. Which would you choose? No social media for a year or no working out for a month? Why?

11. What are you sending me for my birthday?

I'm tagging:


  1. #6 is super weird, and I think "moist" is a gross word in general! :) I like the word "cake" and the K sound in general. Who thinks of these things??!

    But...I completed my assignment as requested!

  2. Sounds like fun!! Thanks for tagging, I will post mine next week!!! :) Have a fabulous weekend!!


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
