Eleven ... Once' ... Onze ... Undici ...Elva

Eleven. For those of you (like me) that require Google Translator to know what those words are up there in my title, they are the word "Eleven" translated into Spanish, French, Italian and Swedish.

Why Eleven? 
I got tagged by Rachel over at "In my Life, I love you More" - I need to answer 11 questions, create 11 new questions and tag some friends, and mention 11 random things about myself. Phewww. That's a lot. I better get going on this for the weekend!  This is pretty cool, and since I took zero pictures for my Project 52 this week, I will post this as a nice change-up...

There are 6 rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself & 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the 11 questions set for you in the original post.
4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog and tell them you've tagged them.
6. No saying, "If you are reading this, you're tagged."

11 Random things about me
  1. My daughter and my husband complete my life (yeah, I know that is sooo Jerry McGuire, but too bad, it's true!)
  2. I am the world's biggest NY Yankees fan. I live for baseball season & don't miss a game! 
  3. I am a computer & tech gadget geek. (including my blackberry which I can't live without!) 
  4. I love my hair 
  5. Can't live without my Clinique moisturizer and MAC Lip gloss
  6. I'm a Law & Order junky. The original & SVU. 
  7. I will NEVER drive a Mini-van. Never. Ever. Never. . 
  8. I have lived in NJ for almost all of my 41 years. 
  9. My favorite food - Italian anything. 
  10. My dream job (if money were not a concern) would be either a Ski Instructor or Bird Rehabilitation (Ornithologist). Or perhaps a newborn photographer. hehe.
  11. I used to hate kids. I never wanted kids. I changed my mind after I got married and still wasn't convinced it was for me until I actually gave birth. I "used to be" one of "those" that would give screaming kids mother's a dirty look in the store or restaurant. Well - Kharma got my ass back (in a good way) LOL. Because now I love kids. I love my own more than anything in the world (goes without saying), and I love all other babies & children. It's like I'm this new improved model of what used to be Skye! I now am sympathetic to that screaming child's mom (or dad) in the store or restaurant. AND if anyone gives them or me with my kid, a dirty look, I shoot the look right back and then say out loud  "If you don't want screaming kids, then don't come to a family restaurant". Talk about doing a turnaround! haha! I can honestly say, I wish I did not wait so long to have my daughter. I wish I would have done it sooner. I now know if we never had her, that I would have been missing out on the absolute best thing in my entire life. I would have never felt that joy & unimaginable passion that takes over your heart & soul as a parent. 
Well #11 was kinda long- sorry! 

11 Questions from Rachel to me: 

1. If you could choose one food that you could eat for the rest of your life with reckless abandon and never gain an ounce from it, what would it be? 

2. What is the most memorable book you’ve ever read? (Alternately, which book that you’ve read has made the biggest impact on your life?) I read this book after I had Julianna and it broke my heart. I can't imagine any father having to go through this kind of loss. But the ending of the book, and how it turned out is very incredible. Sad book but it was a fabulous read since it was a true story - Two Kisses For Maddie - by Matt Logelin. 
I am going to add a 2nd book that changed me earlier in life. This was my favorite book from my pre-teen  years- I still remember it as being the greatest book and I can't wait for my daughter to reach the age where she can enjoy this book as I did - Are you there God, It's me Margaret -  by Judy Bloom. 

3. What is your favorite vacation you’ve ever taken? My 11 day trip to St Lucia for our honeymoon. Hands down. Here is my post with pictures about it: Honeymoon

4. What is your favorite article of clothing that you own? (Bonus points for posting a picture of you wearing it!) Hmmm. I can't say I have a favorite article of clothing b/c I don't care for the way I look in anything. Oh wait, I know, It's my Yankees ball cap!! :)  And here is my bonus picture: 

5. What blogger that you’ve never met do you think would be your BFF in real life and why? Tough choice because I love so many of my bloggy friends out there! But I would say, Karli from the Bonnie 5! She's cool peeps! We've had some fun offline conversations. 

6. What is the next trip you plan to take? Charleston, SC 

7. If you could spend the day with one person, living or dead, who would it be? Bill Gates. 

8. Have you ever eaten a bug, by accident or on purpose? Probably 

9. What is your favorite holiday? Christmas. Hands down. 

10. What is one quote that you find inspiring or motivating? Not sure, I am not one of those quote people. I don't know one good quote I can think of.
