My 11

Hi everyone!  I was tagged by Beth at Kitchen Minions to take part in this question list. It is a fun way to get to know other bloggers and to do something a little different from the same old routine.

Ok so let's get to it! It has RULES and everything! I also need to TAG a few make sure you scroll down to see if you are "IT".

The rules: 
1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions set for you in their post.
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them you've tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people.
So here we go ....
