Random questions about me..

Don't want to read this?? I don't blame you. But one of my favorite people in the whole world tagged me (Im not sure if "tagged" is the correct blogger word but thats what Im using) to answer some random questions and then I get to tag some of you so.. here they are!

1. If you could be a superhero, what would your super powers be? 
Why are these questions so hard? I have been sitting here arguing with myself about what super power I want for the last ten minutes. How do you decide on something as big as this? If I had to answer I would probably say.... whatever power Ironman has. Genius maybe?... that and a TON of money.  I guess he doesn't actually have a "superpower" but the dude is incredible and gets to do it all! He even flies! Plus he is just incredibly witty and has really awesome toys. 
2. Hot dogs or hamburgers? 
Hamburgers. Duh.
3. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
My selfishness. I fight it! I do but it wins way too often. Hate it.
4. In the next life, when we are all perfect :) what age would you be?
I was going to say like 11 or so but thats only because it was such a fun age but I think as far as when I have felt the most "perfect" was at about 22. Although it wasn't my most favorite time in life. Physically I think I was at my peak... and then I had a baby. 
5. Tell me your favorite movie and why it is.
I literally CAN NOT pick just one. I can't do it. Can I give a few? First I would probably say Drop Dead Fred. Why? Because it brings back superb memories of my childhood and mostly my sister. Next, Now and Then because again... it brings back the best memories of my best friends growing up. And last would probably be either Billy Madison or Emperors New Groove because they make me laugh... historically... every time. None of these movies have real thick plots or amazing acting (lets be honest.. most of these movies don't even really have good plot s or decent acting. But all of them have made me relax or laugh or feel at home at one time or another. I could just add and add to this list.
6. What would your dream vehicle be?
Honestly? I don't even know anymore. I have always wanted a fully restored '67 Camero or of course my GMC truck but really... I don't care anymore as long as it runs and gets my where I want to go, Im ok with it. 
7. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you'd do with your new found wealth?
Id like to say that Id be smart with it and invest it all but the first thing I would probably do is travel. Maybe go back to Tanzania and find Melkiory?
8. If you could spend an hour with anyone (alive or dead) who would it be?
Another one that I don't know if I can answer... I guess Im going to throw out the cliche again and say Christ but if not Christ either his Mother Mary (I am so fascinated by her) or Abraham.
9. Where would you like to see yourself in 10 years?
Where would I LIKE to see myself? or where do I realistically see myself? Id LIKE to see myself living with my beautiful family in Europe or some incredible tropic island and I would LIKE us to have so much money that my husband doesn't have to work and we can just play play play all the time. But.... realistically I would like us to probably have a couple more kids, in a nice but not extreme home with land... lots of land. I wanna be a soccer mom and hopefully be doing a good job at getting my children to independently make good choices. I just want my family happy.
10. If we had the "beam me up Scottie" technology- where on earth would you travel to?
Finally an easy one. Barcelona, Camp Nou. Barce vs. Real Madrid... El Classico! Sigh....
11. If you had to change into either a dolphin or a falcon which would you become?
After much deliberation I have to go with Falcon. Although I ADORE dolphins and the Ocean is incredible.... its scares the boogers outta me. Seriously, Im terrified. I can't even tell you why for sure but I am.  And so I will go with falcon. It suits me better. The mountains are so much more comfortable for me and flying? yes please.
ok now I get to tag or spotlight (again I don't know which to call it) some of you my dear friends! and the lucky winners are...
 Um... I don't have enough friends to spotlight 11 people.. at least not without spotlighting someone who  has already been spotlighted? spotlit? huh... I knew there was a reason I used "tagged". anyhow.. anyone who I didn't tag and would like to answer the questions, please do. (cough cough kira, bradie)

  1. "and then I had a baby..." Hahahaha!! So freaking true! And we must be related...spiritually related or something because the ocean and sea creatures freak me out. I try really hard not to be, but even when we go to an aquarium I have a hard time looking at them. Especially the really big exhibits. That glass could break any time, and those fish could eat me.

  2. I'm glad Wendy did this so I could find out you where back in the blogging world! Your answers were awesome and I love your list of movies. The other day my YW were having this fascinating conversation about shampoo and conditioner, I have no idea why, so I had to do the whole "shampoo is better....stop looking at me swan" thing and they all just looked at me like I was crazy. I then realized that I'm not 12 spending my summer watching Adam Sandler movies at the Cowleys and I felt old. It was a sad day. Sorry for the long comment, your kiddo's are adorable!!!

  3. Your answers are saaaaweeeeeet! Loved them all. and they only once again reminded me why I love you :D (I also loved that you included a soccer comment in there someplace :) thanks for playing along! xoxoxoxox
