11 fun or random facts about Erin
1. One time, before we were dating, I pretended to be asleep on the band bus so that I could rest my head on Jake's shoulder... Thinking I was asleep, he kissed the top of my head. I think that's the moment that I fell in love with him.
2. I am a beauty product junkie. Skin care, hair care, makeup... I love it all. 
3.  I still watch Glee every week... Even though the show just isn't as good as it was. 
4. I crack my knuckles all the time... I can't help it.
5. I am a respectful age of 25 and I take gummy vitamins. 
6. When my husband, then boyfriend, was at AIT in Huston and D.C. we played World of Warcraft together. (I can't believe I just admitted that!!!)
7. I can't stand plain chocolate. I can devour any other sweet... Except plain chocolate.
8. I hate sweating... Working out isn't worth the sweat. Eww.  (I need to get over that. Sheesh)
9. Football equals nap time... But my Degree is in Sports and Leisure Studies... Ah the irony.
10.  I didn't get my license until I was 18 because I had to pay for the classes myself and I didn't think they  were worth it.
11. My sister is 6 years older than me. When I was born I was 'her baby'. She, literally, did everything for me except breast feed (obviously). Mom thought it was cute.

Questions from Darby for me to Answer:
1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging for wedding planning reasons. To keep track of ideas and fit in with the girls who were on The Knot boards.
2. Do you have a bucket list? If so what are two things on it?
I want to see wild elephants... So to go on a safari in Africa. I also want to kiss the blarney stone... So I'll just say a general tour of Europe.  :)
3. What is one thing you can’t live without?
Music. 
4. What was the last book you read? Did you like it?
I just finished The Hangman's Daughter for my book club. It was a German novel translated to English... It wasn't my favorite, but it wasn't bad.
5. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
As long as I have my family, I can live anywhere.
6. What dish or recipe have you always wanted to make, but have been too scared to?
I don't cook... So let's just say anything involving using the oven and the stove at the same time.
7. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I'm kind of both, it depends. I can get up early if there is a reason, otherwise let me sleep... But I can stay up late if I get caught up in something.
8. What is your pet peeve?
Talking during a movie or TV show that I'm really interested in. I've gone so far as to harshly kick people out of rooms. 
9. What is your idea of a perfect vacation?
Family and sunshine.
10. If you were given a million dollars, how would you spend it?
You have no idea... This is a for real conversation that is had on a regular basis. 
10% to church
pay of all of my family member's debt. 
Buy my parents a ranch house and flip their old one.
Buy a modest size house with a barn and 2 horses (the barn will have a small apartment upstairs where a student will work while attending college. We'll partner up with the 4H program or something.)
Buy 2 reliable cars.
Take the entire family on vacation to Europe. (main stops being Scotland, Ireland, France, Greece, Italy and Germany)
Split what is left between charities and savings/CID/invest or whatever Jake wants.
11. What is your guilty pleasure?
I love reading. Give me a good book and warm blankets and I'm good to go.
