Let those 11 bloggers know you tagged them!

So lets see here are 11 fun facts about me!
1- I was born in the same hospital as my dad, at 4:44 in the afternoon, yes 4 is my favorite number.
2- When I was 5 I asked my dad how old you had to be to drive, upon finding out the legal driving age I told my father I would be driving a red sports car when I got my license-yes I was 5!  I am still waiting for that red sports car... 
3- I think shopping is sometimes the best cure for a bad day!
4- I originally went to Butler for dance and ended up switching my degree to International Studies!  
5- I can come off as a bit of a girly girl but I actually love being outdoors.  I grew up going to the lake with my family.  Hiking, water skiing (wake boarding) and swimming in the lake I love it all!  Still trying to get used to the idea of camping though, I am more of a rustic cabin girl!
6- I plan my outfits for the week on Sunday night.  It is way to hard to coordinate an outfit at 5 in the morning for work!  A girl has to look cute!

  2. Such great facts!! I completely agree shopping makes it all better!!!

  3. How short are you?! :) I hear you on the dietitian thing, but I'd like to be a holistic one just because i don't completely agree with regular dietitian's with our food pyramid and all. They once told me to feed my daughter avocado mashed with butter and cream to fatten my baby up. She wasn't even underweight! I just stuck with avocados. :)

  4. We have so much in common -- the name obviously, my last car was a Jeep Liberty, Breakfast at Tiffany's is my favorite movie and fall is my favorite season. Pretty cool. One of my sisters is in grad school to be a dietician and I love being able to go to her with questions. Have a great week!
