Little did you know!

One of my new blogger friends started this and I think it's a creative way to get to know one another and for our followers to get to know us! Hope you enjoy :) 

There are five simple rules:
1. Post these rules
2. Post a picture of yourself and 11 random things
3. Answer the questions set for you in the original post
4. Create 11 new questions and tag bloggers to answer them
5. Go to their blog or twitter and tell them you've tagged them

11 Random Things...

1. I am a girly girl and love clothes, shoes, hair and make-up but I can't do my own hair or make-up very well at all. I've had people helping me since I was in 8th grade. Very sad, but incredibly true. 

2. I've been doing Pilates for almost 9 years. It helps me in so many ways. 

3. Neon pink finger nails will ALWAYS make me smile :) 

4. My Grandmother taught me to enjoy and appreciate the finer things in life at a very early age. 

5. My mom does not like shopping at all, I do all of her shopping for her. 

6. I paint, mostly on large canvases, and when I paint I get incredibly messy. 

7. I like to get pedicures but not manicures. I think my nails look better and the polish lasts longer when I do them. I can give my self a great French manicure. 

8. There is not much in life I feel like I cannot accomplish. Our family friends joke that I could easily run a small country and I think I could. 

9. I find the wind to be magical and calming. There is something incredibly spiritual about it for me. 

10. My Grampsie meant the world to me and there is not a single day that I do not miss him.

11. I am very competitive and pretty athletic, I love running, tennis, hiking and horseback riding.

    1. Thanks Kecia, what a great idea! I have had so much fun reading your blog and I think you must have one of the coolest jobs on the planet.
