11 things about me.. what about you?

Tagged.... I was. 11 is the magic number....

Here we go:

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!

Random things about me:

1.  I don't regularly wear deoderant

2. I was kind of arrested sort of .. once.  

3. I really really really like bananas. Like best food ever.

4.  I used to work as a compliance officer at a financial services company

5. I love to paint.. like interior walls not artistic stuff

6.  I used to drink like a fish and now I am wasted after two glasses of wine.

7. I'm a people pleaser. Except when I'm not. No seriously.. I talk a big game, but I really want everyone to be happy.

8.  I don't bathe my kids every night. Go ahead call CPS. I've been waiting for them.

9.  I plan to live to be at least 100. My family has ridiculous longevity and I have no reason to believe that I would not follow suit. Jason PROMISED I could live w/ him when I'm super old.

10.  I struggle almost every time I go to the grocery store. Do I buy the organic broccoli w/ the packaging or the conventional broccoli free of packaging. I once read the book The Story of Stuff and had to send Tom to the grocery store to pull the trigger on the items I just couldn't buy.
