11 Randoms meets BabyWeightMyFatAss

I was tagged by Kandi and Jen  and Jennifer for the 11 Randoms posts that have been all over running blogosphere this past week. 

The rules:
1. Post these rules
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself
3. Answer the questions 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 you’ve tagged them
6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people!

The randomness about me:
1. I love to fish and wish we can start taking the kids this year. 
2. Turning 40 didn't bother me until I got this  brow line thing going on between my eye brows. I would take a pic of it but I look like I have 5 chins and that's a no tonight. * I don't turn 40 til May 6th. So you have about 90 days to save up for my gifts! lol

3. I take a herbal medication for anxiety called Valerian. I am so glad that I do.   
4. I was a photography major for a while in college before turning to social work. I left all that for a glamorous job at a nuclear power plant. How's that for random? 
5. I have cankles and am pretty sure nothing I do can get rid of them. My Dad had the stumps my Mom was a tiny little petite thing. Did not get those genes. 
6. Our 8 year old tv is about to take a dump. Awesomeness. 
7. I grew up in Chicago. 
8. My sister lives outside of Atlanta. This is only important because there is a place called Partners Pizza that has this awesome Potato pizza. Here is the description: We spread our crust with Sour Cream, layer it with sliced Potatoes, top it with Green Onions, Bacon and Cheddar cheese.  YUM!! When I first heard of it I thought they were crazy. Then I had it. Then I brought some home on a plane. LOL. I have found some comparable recipes on Pinterest but have yet to try them. 
9. On that note about Pinterest. Some men on pinterest irk me. I know, I know anyone can be on it. But there's something creepy about categorizing your porn. Just saying. 
10. I only watch two regular network tv shows. The Big Bang Theory and Mike and Molly. 
11. Did you know I'm a huge Toby Keith fan? LOL.

11. If you were invited to a wedding reception but not the ceremony, would you be offended? No not really. In fact about 13 years ago a coworker invited me to his reception after the dinner part to drink and party. I knew some of the people because of work but it was a turning point. A few months later same coworker asked if I could fill in for someone who bailed on a ski club trip.
