11 Random Things Tag

I was recently tagged in the 11 Random Things Tag by Every Day In Stilettos. I generally like tags, as long as they are a one post type of thing. Remember the Behind the Blogger Series that I totally failed at? Yeah... I'm a one post tag kinda gal I guess.




Here's how it works:




  • Post these rules
  • Post 11 random things about yourself
  • Answer the questions set for you in their post.
  • Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
  • Go to their blog and tell them you’ve tagged them.

  • My 11 Random Things

    hey kara! Thanks for thinking of me! I'm so sorry that I don't even have 2 seconds to be writing this comment right now- we are in the middle of moving and it's basically the most stressed I've been in a long time! But like I said, thanks for thinking of me! Maybe I can get to the Q&A when this move is over?

    Thanks for the tag - I will participate! I'll do it tomorrow. I like doing these things. They're fun. I also am adamant about gardening. My husband cringes at the amount of water it takes where we're at, so I always water when he's not at home. Then if he goes to water, I don't say anything because the more the better. :) Poor guy. He's getting hosed. (pun intended)
