Questions and Answers x 11

I've been tagged in a game by Shelley from Crazy Wonderful, and thought it would be fun to join in.

Eleven is the magic number here.  Answer eleven questions, tag eleven other bloggers (or ask everyone to play), and come up with eleven different questions to ask them.

1) If you could go back in time and change one thing what would it be?

Can I change two?  I wouldn't have quit dance...and I would change my major in college and go for art and graphic design instead of marketing and business.  To any young girls out there that read this blog...follow your dreams.  Yes, money is important so you can feed yourself and your family if you have one, however quality of life is very imporant too.  I have been just as happy (if not happier) broke...then when I've had plenty.

2) What is your favorite trend in decorating?

I have always been into kitsch and vintage.  Most of my furniture and decor has been found at thrift stores, was in the family, or found on the curb.  The first thing we are going to do when we move is buy a real grown up comfy couch.  You know, a new one from the couch store! 
I adore Thompson Family Blog. She is one of my all time favorites.

3) What is your reoccurring dream? 
Wow, I had night terrors when I was little and moonlighted as a sleepwalker (or at least that's what they told me). I am fearful my kids may have them too. 
Very weird, but when I was young I had terrifying dreams.  I had a reoccuring dream of the stations of the cross and I always saw my dad's face in Jesus.  It was horrifying.  They went away and never lasted long. 
I also had a recurring dream that a guy with a knife came into my gymnastics class.  We would all be sitting on the beam when he approached us one at a time.  Some girls ran, some didn't.  I would run, and I always woke up when I reached the back door of the gym.

I still have reoccurring dreams that I want to run, but can't.

4) If you could take any type of class what would it be?

Graphic design or Illustration.  DREAM!
SALE 20% off / marked down from 30 USD

5) Do you have a secret talent?
 I am very good at making my friends pee their pants.  It's a gift, and I take it very seriously.  It helps that I have no shame and don't embarrass easily. 

6) What celebrity do you think you'd hit it off with?
Amy Poehler
Amy Poehler make-up test polaroids

And, Amy Sedaris...we would never forget each others name.  It would be like Heathers for dorks...but more fun and without all the murders. 
7) Calories don't count, what are you going to devour?

This entire case of donuts...duh.

8) If you could do one thing without any repercussions, what would it be? 
Quit my day job and open a shop.  It would consist of an arts and craft studio/woodworking shop, and we would sell vintage clothes, housewares and records...and of course fresh donuts and hot coffee....and that's all I would need.  And, a spot for my rascals...I like to keep them in tow.

9) What's a TV show you're embarrassed to admit you watch?
 Young and the Restless!   I'm really not embarrassed about it...but I do get slack for it.  My hubs and I watch it every night...or we'll watch a marathon in one sitting.  That's right. Y and R baby. And, since I know you are wondering, Victor-the mustache Newman and Nikki are almost back together for the 329th time.  Aaahhhh, sweet love.
Eric Braeden and and Melody Thomas Scott

10) What song could you listen to over and over?

Gotye-Somebody that I used to know....with Kimbra.  I am obsessed.

11) What have you said to get out of a speeding ticket? 
I've only gotten out of one ticket in my life.  It was about 3am and I was eating Taco Bell while driving.  Totally let me off.  I have tried crying before...but that didn't work.  I have however gotten two friends out of tickets.  I am all about taking one for the team.

Now come play along....whoever wants to.  Link up your post in the comments so I can come read! 
My 11 questions:
1.)  If $10,000 fell from the sky and landed on your porch...what is the first thing you would do?
2.)  You could live anywhere in the world...where would it be?
3.)  You get to pick one skill you can suddenly be a master in...what would that skill be? 
4.)  Dream job?  What is it?
5.)  City or Country?  and why.
6.)  What is your perfect day?
7.)  Favorite meal or snack.
8.)  You have a chance to get together with your favorite blogger.  Who would it be, and what would you plan to do. 
9.)  You can get any haircut/ matter how drastic...and you can have your old hair back in a week.  What would you do? 
10.)  Where do live and what do you love about your city.
11.)  What are you obsessing over now?

I am tagging a few, but anyone come play along if you're feeling froggy.
