Tag! I'm It!

The lovely Stacey tagged me and I must say I am slightly obsessed love being tagged and sharing info with my readers! I have "known" Stacey for years now and she's got the cutest little girl now, please go check out her blog!
She submitted these questions for me to answer...

1. If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Now I'm not the traveling type. I've never wanted to "travel the world" and have only been out of the country once {on our honeymoon} and have only left Ohio to go to the surrounding states and Las Vegas and Florida. I have never been to NYC and honestly have no desire, call me crazy. But if I could go ANYWHERE it would be Napa Valley. I know it's not glamorous like Paris or Italy but there's something about being in a vineyard, at sunset, sampling wines with my Mr. Husband that just makes me go "aahhhh". If anyone wants to send me a plane ticket I'll gladly report back and send you a souvenir bottle of wine.

2. Which do you like better, cooking or baking?
BAKING hands down! I love cooking but oh I love love love to bake. You name it, cookies, cupcakes, brownies I like it all! My secret dream job would be to open my own bakery. I would LOVE it. I am so excited to have my little girl now and teach her how to bake and bake all the goodies for her birthday parties. It's gonna be SO MUCH fun!

3. What type of music do you listen to?
Honestly {I know this is what EVERYONE says} I listen to a little bit of everything. BUT if you got in my car RIGHT NOW it would probably be on a country radio station. I love a little rap/hip-hop to drop it like it's hot with my girls. I love me some Michael Buble to sit around and drink wine with my Mr. Husband. I like some Jack Johnson when I'm on a long car ride. If I had to go to ONE concert for the rest of my life it would be Dave Matthews, hands down. And I love a little Britney for, well, any occasion.

4. What's your favorite holiday?
Wow, do I have to pick just one? I guess Christmas. I just love seeing all the families {even if the traveling stresses me out secretly} and feeling the love and warmth of the season, or is that my belly full of cookies talking? I would say a close second is 4th of July. I love summer, so, holiday+my favorite season= a good time. And then there's Halloween. It's the kick off to my favorite {wait I just said summer was my favorite, oh well} season and drinking cider and the smell of leaves makes me the happiest.

5. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
I'd say extrovert. I have no problem talking to people and definitely prefer being around people to being alone. When I'm with my BFF I become a little more extroverted and I LOVE her for that.

6. Are you excited for fall? If so, what do you love most about the season?
OMG am I excited!? That would be an understatement! I am THRILLED for fall. It could be because I spent the entire summer GIANORMOUS and uncomfortable so this fall is like sweet relief for me. I love everything that comes with fall, the cooler temps after a SUPER HOT summer, the smell cider on the stove, having a fire in the fireplace and back yard, the color of the leaves changing as I drive home, it's all so beautiful.

7. What websites do you frequent most often?
Facebook and Blogger. I would LOVE some recommendations for new ones because I can only update my status so many times before I become "that girl" and I am all caught up on my blog friends for now. Occasionally I will visit some store sites, BRU, Target, Gymboree, etc but I'm on a shopping ban while I'm home so those have become torture off limits. I used to visit lots of celebrity gossip sites but I'm over that stage in my life. Guess that's what we call "growing up".

8. What is your favorite childhood memory?
I think my favorite memories are the ones with my BFF Kelly. I am an only child so growing up she was {and still is} like my sister. She would come spend the night at my house Friday night and then we'd spend ALL day together, and I'd go to her house and spend the night Saturday. We would walk each other home and have stick races on the bridge that we had to cross to get to each others house. When she would get "in trouble" and get "grounded" her mom would never ground her from me. After 22 years we are still friends and I still consider her my "sister".
