11 facts about myself:

2. I have 2 cats, Booger 12, and Cleo 11.

3. I have been to just over 15 countries

4. I've been married for almost 14 years

5. My daughter is 6, will be 7 in Nov.

6. I have lived in England for 5 years total now, 4 years the first time and just over a year this time.

7. I have also lived in 4 different states: Indiana, Florida (twice), Montana and North Dakota

8. I have recently decided that when we retire from the AF I want to move to Utah. I don't know why but I fell in love with the mountains and the area north of Salt Lake City up towards Great Salt Lake seems perfect!

9. There is a group of 11 women I consider my best friends that I met online, and have only met about half of them in person! We all get along sooo perfectly, I am forever grateful to have them in my life, and the fact that the 12 of us are all friends makes it even better!

10. I love to travel, especially by cruise! I've been on 2 and they were the 2 best vacations I've had.

11. I've swam with stingrays, they are so amazing!

Here are the questions I was asked:

1. When did you start blogging?

I started blogging at the end of February this year.

2. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?
My answer to this question is always the same: Ireland! I've been twice and will always want to go back. Hopefully sometime soon.

3. If you were stuck on an island what are the top five things you need?

My Nook (with unlimited battery lol), Wi-fi, my laptop (unlimited battery again), nail polish & supplies, my husband & daughter

4. What's your favorite nail polish color?
Overall favorite polish color is blues, but specific color is China Glaze Riveting

5. What's your favorite make up brand?
I'm not very loyal to make up brands, I have a few pieces from a bunch, but if I had to pick one line to use for the rest of my life I think I might pick Clinique

6. Who do you look up to and why?
My mom (cheesy I know) because she has always done whatever is needed to make sure that her family is taken care of and after my brother was born she (along with my dad) raised a baby, waitressed full time and went to nursing school all while still being my Girl Scout troop leader. And I never felt neglected no matter how busy she was.

7. What are your hobbies other than blogging?

video games, reading

8. What is something you love, but everyone else hates?

I honestly can't think of anything! There is way more of the other way around lol

9. What trends do you hate?
Ummmm, I don't follow many trends, but I really don't like the new Spotted from OPI, and not really a fan of magnetic polish, mostly because it doesn't work well with my nails so it looks bad

10. If you won a million dollars what would you do with it?
First thing is pay off all our bills and buy a house, nothing fancy, just something big enough for the 3 of us to have plenty of room. Make sure my daughter has enough money put away for college. Then I would pay off my parents, inlaws and brothers bills as well, and give them all some extra. Then I would get my group of friends together somewhere for an amazing vacation, just the girls, and I would buy them all cool gifts. If I had enough I would help them all out with bills as well. Then I would travel all around the world and see all the places I have ever wants to go. Nope, haven't ever thought about this in great detail before, never! lol

11. What are your pet peeves?

Picking something up and not putting it back where it belongs! My husband is incapable of taking something out of the fridge or pantry, using it for 2 minutes, and remembering where he got it from. Even though everything always goes in the same spot!

Now for the 11 questions for those I tag:

1. Favorite part of blogging?

2. Favorite nail polish/make up brand, both big name and indie?

3. Dream car?

4. Worst beauty related purchase?

5. Favorite tv show?

6. Do you prefer shopping online or in store?

7. Favorite book?

8. Best summer memory?
