Tag, you’re it!

My (real life and blog) friend Ashley over at The Pollock Potluck tagged in a game of blog tag!  Ashley lives in the cutest little town with her husband, adorable son Luke and two doggies!  We actually met in college because both of our then boyfriends, now husbands were in the same fraternity.  I wish we had known each other better then because we seem so similar in our values and interests!  But better late than never!  Ashley writes about all of the funny and not-so-humorous moments of being a new mom.  Go on over to her blog and check her out!  I’ve never done anything like this before but I can’t wait to answer her questions and tag some of my blog friends!

So I am supposed to answer the 11 questions Ashley came up with and then create 11 more questions and tag several bloggers/friends!  Here we go!

1. If you had to change your name, what would you change it to and why?
Hmm, I don’t know if I would change my name.  I have always loved Erin Elizabeth (is that vain?).  I like a ton of other names but I can’t even write them out because pretending to have another name feels so weird!!

2. What website(s) consumes most of your internet time?
Eek.  I am ashamed to say Facebook and Pinterest.  I’m more ashamed about Facebook.  I check it way too often- it doesn’t help that it’s on my phone.  But I love Pinterest and I think it was one of the most brilliant ideas ever.  I’m still waiting for an Ipad app though, HINT HINT Pinterest!  Feel free to follow me!  Pinterest is especially helpful right now because I’m helping my future sister-in-law and brother plan their wedding!


3. Is there one household chore you love to do?  How about detest?
I don’t particularly love doing any chores but I love the feeling after I do them.  I guess I love vacuuming because you can see an instant change, like the lines it makes in the carpet.  :)  Haha I need instant gratification!  I would say I detest cleaning toilets, I mean who doesn’t?


4. Coke or Pepsi?  Diet or regular?
Well I would definitely prefer coke over pepsi and totally diet over regular but I am really trying not to drink soda.  I stopped having soda consistently in August of 2010 and have only had about 10 sodas since then (when I’m super craving them).  Before I quit drinking soda I had atleast one Diet Dr. Pepper a day.


5. You have an entire day off to yourself- no commitments, no responsibilities.  What do you do?
Wow anything I want???  Can I use imaginary money too?  I would probably go get a massage and then a mani/pedi.  Then I would get a banana pudding milkshake from Chick-fil-a and I’d probably go shopping.  I think that’s it.  It sounds kinda lame but that’s the best I could come up with without doing the impossible like teleporting to a million places.  That would certainly make my time much more efficient.


6. Have you ever been to Disney?
Yep, we went for 7 days in 1993.  My parents took 4 kids who were 9, 7 {me}, 5, 3.  Crazy.  {I know there is a good pic of us at Disney- in matching outfits- but I don’t have access to it.  Maybe I’ll add it later… if you’re lucky. Trust me, you’ll want to see it.}

Here are the pics!  See?  They are amazing.

Matching fanny packs and outfits!  Holla.

Tree trunk legs are hot and totally not awkward.

7. If you online shop, tell me where?  If not, what stores do you frequent to drop some dolla dolla bills?
I think I probably spend the most online at Amazon (books, music, general stuff).  Stores that I frequent the most are probably Target, TJ Maxx and Homegoods.


8. What are your fears?
I think some of my most frequent fears are losing other family members.  My dad passed away when I was a freshman in college so I frequently think about losing other family members.  I am also very afraid of finding a dead body in a bathroom stall.

But going in a different direction, an inspirational quote from one of my favorite authors.

{I can’t find the source, sorry!}

9. If you were a famous athlete, what would you be famous for?
Probably soccer.  I think I started when I was in about 3rd grade and played every year through the end of my freshman year in college.  I have played on a couple of indoor teams since moving to Richmond and I’m about to start playing again {starting next weekend!}.  I am so excited!  {The pic below is me probably as a sophomore in high school}.

10. Right handed or left?


11. 30 years from now, what does your life look like?
I hope to have a lot of kids- few of our own and a few Haitian bebes- probably living in a big farmhouse on a bunch of land.

It’s your turn! {even if I don’t tag you, you should do it.  Come on PEEER PRESSURE!}
