Wednesday Randoms

Morning, friends! Jen over at Boys will be Boys tagged me in a 'random facts' post so I thought I'd participate--- and let's be honest, some days it's just easier to not come up with an original post ;)

Random Facts
*I lived in 8 different houses growing up before I moved out on my own (I think 8, fact check Mom??) No reason, my family just likes to move. Probably where I got my love for house hunting, even when I'm NOT moving!

*I absolutely LOVE to go boating with my friends, but almost pee my pants bathing suit every time I do either of these activities:

*J and I start planning our Halloween costumes months in advance. We're cool.

*Every New Year's Eve for the past 18 years my family and I have eaten at Benihana's-- our favorite Japanese steak house. Is that a tradition or WHAT?!

*I've been at my current job for almost 3 years and feel like I'm going to be that rare person that retires from
 the first full-time job they ever had.

*I'm still obsessed with photobooth pics on my computer and generally end up crying from laughing
every time we have a photoshoot.

Now for the list Jen provided, here are my answers :)
1. What is your profession?  I work in the football world, that's all I'll say ;)
2. How would you describe your style? Simple, but classic
3. What one make-up product can you not live without? Rimmell mascara!
4. If you could be besties with one celebrity, who would it be? Probablyyyy Carrie Underwood... or Zoeey Deschanel
5. What is your dream vacation? There are sooo many places I want to travel to, but Fiji is definitely high up on the list!
6. What magazines do you subscribe to? Better Homes & Gardens and ESPN, lol... couldn't be more different, right?
7. If you could have any special talent {that you don't currently have}, what would it be? I'd LOVE to be an amazing singer-- I'm an average singer now, but to just be able to blow people away with your voice... sigh, dreaming!!! ;)
8. What is your favorite breakfast food? I'm a granola and protein shake kinda' girl now... but if I didn't care about weighing 457 pounds it would be waffles!
9. If you could do anything, what is your dream job? I've kinda' already got it... but I'll again throw out a singer/musician and an author... the author part is in the works!!!
10. What is your guilty pleasure? Candy... OH MY GOSH. Some people crave ice cream... I crave Nerds, Sweedish Fish, Reese mini's, etc!! Oh-- and any stupid show they put on TLC, lol!
