I Got Tagged :)

Wonderful and ever so thoughtful Maggie, from a carolina love tagged me in this little game. I was pleased as punch when I found this out! Thanks, Maggie! This means you guys will get to learn some new things about me here in this little post. You should be excited. Seriously.

But first, I have to share the rules (cause that's the rule and I am a rule follower :)

1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
5. Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her.

1. What is the one item you have to have in your fridge/pantry? 
Right now, I would have to say Claussen Pickels. I love pickles. A lot. And I have tried many different types and brands of pickles. This one tops them all. They are pretty much the best thing ever. Hubby despises them, but hey, that's just more for me! 
2. Is there a song that evokes an emotion/memory from you no matter what? (can be a happy, nostalgic, etc)
There are a few of these. But I think I would have to say, "Viva la Vida" by Coldplay. I had the pianist play this song right after the hubs and I were hitched and were walking out of the church. She was amazing. And I love the song. Every time I hear it I go back to that moment. I could hear it a thousand times and never tire of it. 
3. What do you feel is your biggest accomplishment to date? Could be personal or professional.
Golly, I feel like there are a few things that could fit into this one too! Oh, how to pick one... I guess, I will have to say, running the Princess 1/2. I am not the athletic type. And far from the running type. In fact, I'm the type that calls the people who run 1/2 marathons crazy. But I decided to run one. And I did. It was a pretty wonderful feeling of satisfaction when I crossed that finish line. I debating about running another one. 
4. Would you rather go the rest of your life without ever watching your favorite show/movie or without reading your favorite book?
Life without my favorite movie. Hands down. Even though I love my favorite movie (who wouldn't), I could not live without my favorite book, "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers. It is one of the best books, in my opinion. Granted I have a lot of favorites, but this is one I have read about a dozen times already and I could read it a dozen more. I love the story. If you haven't read it, you should. 
5. Skydiving or bungee jumping?
Neither? If I had to choose one... Skydiving. The fall is a lot longer. And you jump from a lot higher up. But, you are strapped to a professional skydiver who isn't going to let you die. Plus, you get two parachutes if there should be a problem with one. I feel like you might even have a back up, that's four. Yep. No rope around my ankles, please. 
6. Where is the one place you want to go before you die?
Ireland. And Scotland. And New Zealand. And ... It's just so hard to pick one! There are so many places I want to visit! But if I had to pick one, Ireland. I have always wanted to go there. One day, right?  
7. If you had a book written about you and your life, what would you want the title to be?
"The Indecisive, Hometown-less, Baker." ...This is a tough one. I've never really thought about what a book about me would be called before. But for now, I feel as though these adjectives describe me pretty well. At least for tonight. I might change my mind about that.  
8. What would you want your 15 minutes of fame to be for?
Humm... this one, I don't really know about. That I wrote a book? Maybe. I'll just say that for now.  
9. Is there a hobby or activity you did when you were younger that you've given up, but wish could start again?
I feel like all of my hobbies or activities that I have or am interested in now are the same ones from when I was younger. Obviously I'm one exciting person, I've been baking, reading, writing, crocheting, and the like for 20 some years now. New hobby?  
10. What would be the hardest food to give up forever? (Mexican, Italian, cake, etc.)
Bread. I love it in every shape, type, and make of it. 
11. If you could be amazing at one thing, what would you want it to be?
I wish I could be an amazing writer. 

Okay. That's all about me! Riveting, I know :D  Now, my questions:

1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be? 
2. If you had to choose between never brushing your hair again or never washing your face again, which would you choose? 
3. If you had to live in one place for the rest of your life, where would it be? 
4. If you had the choice, and had to live in a different time period/era, which time period/era would you choose? 
5. What do you wish you could have the will power to do that you just can't bring yourself to do now? 
6. What super power would you like to have?  
7. Say you lost your hands and the only thing that could replace them were paws or hooves, which would you choose? 
8. You could only receive text messages or letters/cards (you know, the kind that come in the mail that the mail man brings to your house) for the rest of your life, which would you choose? 
9. If you could only wear one thing/outfit every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?  
10. Guilty pleasure? 
11. What do you want to be when you grow up?
