Marti tagged me on a post on her blog.  This is a fun way to get acquainted, so play along.
1. Post these rules. 
2. You must post 11 random things yourself.
3. Answer the ques­tions the tag­ger 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 that you've tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tag­ging sec­tion about ‘you are tagged if you are read­ing this.’ Blah blah blah, you legit­i­mately have to tag 11 peeps!
And the questions for Marti's 11 tag-ees:

1.  Where do you like to vacation
The last two "real" vacations I've had, I've been fortunate enough to go to Denmark and London.  So...I'll say Europe.  I could definitely live there!  If I can't go to Europe, I'll say  Charleston.  Or Hilton Head.
2.  Do you have pets
Oh, yes!  I have 2 "girls":  Ally (a miniature schnauzer) and Pepper (a Jack Russell mix).  Pepper is my shadow...I don't know what I'd do without my girls.
3.  What is your favorite color
Blue.  Without a doubt.  Just about any shade of blue will do!
4.  How many are in your family
I have CH, and 3 boys who are 23, 19, and 17.  I also still have both parents living, 5 sisters, and 4 brothers.
5.  What is your least favorite thing to do
6.  What is your most favorite thing to do
I love to read, watch movies, and I used to love to play tennis, but I've had to put down my racket for good.
7.  If money were no object what would you like to do when you retire
I would move to Europe (at least for a year) and just travel all through the continent.  Maybe I wouldn't even "move" there, I would just spend a year traveling.
8.  What is your favorite season
Fall.  I love the cooler weather, the leaves changing colors, and the smell of fall.
9.  What book are you currently reading
I'm currently reading a freebie from Amazon:  A Hearth in Candlewood
10.What time do you go to bed, get up in the morning
I get up around 5:15 or 5:30 during the week, and try to go to bed around 10:00.
11.How long have you been blogging.
This February it will be 2 years since I started blogging!  It's been great meeting new people, and reconnecting with some others.  It's also been great getting to know my sister again.

8.  I'm left-handed

10. I've never worn high heels (I recognize my clumsiness!)

  1. I had to pop over and see what you did to me this morning before work. haha I really enjoyed reading your answers and believe it or not, I think I can do this one! You just gave me something to blog about, I think. Thanks for the inspiration. I had nothing prior to this morning. :)

    Have a great day and btw, you were right to not stay up for that game. I'm glad I couldn't see it. Just listening to it was torture. I went to bed with my hubby listening to it on the radio and it disturbed my sleep until the end of the game mercifully put us out of our misery. Just pitiful! haha

    Thanks again,

    For Love of Cupcakes

  5. I never thought of you as 5'9. I'm thinking that our oldest daughter will top out there. Thanks for picking me. I need to think about this one. Just yesterday I feel like I'm just sitting here nesting...that's it. Nothing else :)

  6. I had no idea you were so tall...I'd say you don't need heals at your height. :)
    I love WWF. Send me a game: busybeesuz
    I am a little slow lately, but hopefully I'll have more time soon!
