I Was Tagged!

That's right... I was "blog" tagged by Katie from His Diamond and Mine. Normally I'm not too big into chain emails and such, but I guess this came at the right time. I'm pretty sleepy and am lacking insight tonight. So here goes nothing...

The Rules
1. You must post the rules.
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've been tagged.
4. Tag eleven people and link them in your post.
5. Let them know you've tagged them!!

My Eleven Fun Facts
1. I'm graduating in May!
2. I love to run half marathons. I think 13.1 miles is the perfect distance, especially if you have a good running buddy.
3.When I was little, my nickname was Hollywood- hence the title of my blog. I was the girl on the soccer field doing dances, gymnastics and singing instead of being a proper goalie.
4. My best friend is engaged and it makes me anxious for an engagement of my own- which my boyfriend and I have clearly decided won't be for a few years. Paying for medical and graduate school need to come first.
5. On that note- my boyfriend and I have been together for almost 3 years. We met studying for finals during our Freshman year of college. True story :)
6. I love OPI nail polish but I have hard time choosing just one color to buy at a time.
7. If I could meet two musicians during my lifetime I'd choose John Mayer and Carrie Underwood.
8. My brothers are identical twins, but everyone thinks we're triplets.
9. I love Argentina and one day hope to have a second home there.
10. I'm half Mexican even though some people think I look Asian.
11. My guilty pleasures are frozen yogurt & Mexican food.

Questions for those I've tagged:
1. What's your guilty pleasure?
2. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
3. Do you crave sweet or salty?
4. What's your favorite brand of make up?
5. What's your ideal Saturday afternoon look like?
6. If you are at a bar, what drink do you usually order?
7. What color is on your nails right now?
8. Do you prefer to write in blue or black ink?
9. What's one thing you hope to see change in the next year?
10. What is your favorite song of all time?
11. Have any books changed your life? If so, what are they.

Questions from my tagger:
1. If your friend was asking you to be in her wedding, how would you want her to do so? (This may or may not be for my personal use ;) )
I think a cute monogram notepad or anything from Pintrest would be great! I was also asked once with a blank photo album that said fill this up with memories from our wedding...
2. What are you opinions on Facebook and Twitter?
I love them both but I think people should filter what they put on both sites. Employers truly do take a person's online identity into account when filling job positions. But it's been a great way to keep in touch with all my friends from Argentina.
3. What is your favorite place to relax?
I haven't truly relaxed in a while. But I do enjoy pedicures.
4. What do you want to name your future children?
Whitney, Bradey, Ellie... Yes, I have a Microsoft Word doc with names!
5. Dog or cat?
Dogs, although I've never had one in my life... I'm super allergic to cats.
6. What is your favorite holiday? Why?
My favorite Holiday is Christmas Day- I love gift giving and watching people's reactions, the reminder of Christ's birth and eating all the homemade Mexican food with my wonderful family.
7. What is your favorite quality in your significant other? If you don't have one, what is the most important trait you want a future significant other to have?
Mike has such a big, caring heart. He had AML Leukemia as a child and I think it's enabled him to value everyone and everything, each day.
8. What TV are you upset if you miss?
So You Think You Can Dance!
9. What is your biggest fear?
10. What do you use to stay organized?
My 8.5 x 11 agenda from Target. I've used the same brand since freshman year of college. Everyone knows it's my life! :)
11. If you could buy anything in the world under 500 dollars, what would it be?
Tickets to an amusement park (Disneyland, Six Flags or Knott's Berry Farm), a hotel room & gasoline for the car! Mike and I are in need of a fun vacation!
