11 things...

Ok, so I've been tagged in the bloggy 11 things game.
I think some of the rules were lost or broken along the wayside, so
I may diverge a little, but you'll love me anyways right?! 

1. Post these rules
2. Post a photo of yourself and 11 random things
3. Answer the questions set for you in the original post
4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them
5. Go to their blog/twitter and tell them that you tagged them

11 random things about me, myself and I:

-I grew up on a farm. Sometimes in the winter when our cows had calves my dad would let me bring them inside and I would read them bedtime stories.

-I have a phobia of groupings of things; bugs, birds, bees, etc.

-I took Karate when I was younger and made it to a brown belt, but I don't remember any of it.

-Everything in my house has its place and Mr. Baker has learned them nicely.

-I think being a mom is the best thing ever.

-I love chicken. It's my favorite.

-I'm obsessed with scarves and shoes.

-I've always wanted to live in the jungle like Swiss Family Robinson.

-I'm a terrible driver. I have been pulled over for almost anything you can think of.

-I'm a hypochondriac. Have you seen the movie 'The Switch'? The little boy in that movie could totally be my son.

-I'm late. No matter how much time I give myself I always find a way to be late.

No new questions were posted so I answered the original ones asked to Rouge & Whimsy.

1. If you could have any super power what would it be and why? Teleportation. So I can travel anywhere without having to fly, duh.

2. If you HAD to quit your job (or change your college major) and you HAD to pick a different career path what would you do? Well, I will NEVER quit my job as momma, but if I had to choose a different career path/college major...maybe...journalism...nursing...or veterinarian...

3. What was your most embarrassing moment? Not sure if I should disclose all the info on this one, but it has to do with underwear and a sporting event. very. very. embarrassing. 

4. It's 2012, when you were younger how did you think the world would be by now? I don't know about you guys, but I was hoping for robot maids.

5. What is a fear you are trying to work on? I have a fear of death. Even though I have a relationship with my heavenly Father, I fear the unknown. I'm trying to transfer this fear to faith.

6. Do you remember POGS and if so how the HECK did you play? Of course I remember pogs although, I do not remember how to play. I think I used them more for decoration-I remember sticking a Felix the cat pog on my stereo with putty. Real cool, I know.

7. What talent do you wish you had but lack skills in? I need to improve my math skills I'm tired of counting on my fingers and photography.

8. What store could you max out your credit card in? Oh man. There's a lot. H&M. Target. Pottery Barn. Gap. Urban Outfitters. Forever 21. and so on and so on.

9. What was your favorite childhood toy or activity? I played outside all the time. I was a tomboy. None of that Barbie and house stuff. I loved swimming and sports.

10. If you could have a second house anywhere in the world where would it be and why? Santorini, Greece. Look it up and you'll know.

Here are some new questions:

If you could have dinner with any famous person past or present who would it be and why?

What is the most valuable thing you own?

What was your favorite birthday and why?

What life lesson did you learn the hard way?

What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

If you could instill one piece of advice in a newborn baby's mind what advice would you give?

What would you not give up for 1 million dollars in cash?

What is your purpose in life?

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?

What is your favorite childhood memory?

I don't feel like tagging people right now, but if you want to play along just link it back to me or post a comment!
