I was tagged by Mysti at Digging Out From Our Mess in a meme that’s been sweeping the PF blogs I read.
Here are the rules:
#1 – Post these rules.
#2 – Answer the 11 questions from the person who tagged you.
#3 – Create 11 new questions for the people you tag.
#4 – Tag 11 people and link them to your post.
#5 – Let them know that you tagged them.
Now instead of tagging people (since I can’t keep up with who has already been tagged), I’m going to ask 11 questions for you guys to answer in the comments. You can answer as many (or as few) as you’d like. If you just really want to make it a post, link to your post in the comments so I can be nosy and see what your answers are!
What financial decision would you still make, knowing what you know now? I’ve made so many poor financial decisions, I’m not sure I’d want to repeat any of them. I do think I would stick with the decision to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. At the time that my ex-husband and I filed, we were seriously so deep in debt we couldn’t afford to buy food. It was our own fault, but I was relieved to have an option to start over. I just wish I would have been ready to change my habits instead of getting back into debt a year later.
First car? A 1991 Honda Accord. I got it in 1999 with 127k miles, then proceeded to drive it until the wheels fell off. I made it 7 years before I had to trade it for something dependable – trade-in value was a whopping $500.
Favorite meal? Fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, my grandmother’s dressing, green beans, corn, and macaroni and cheese. What can I say? I’m a Southern girl at heart.
Pancakes or waffles? I’m not sure why this has to be an either/or thing. I love both!
If you could change your real name, what would you pick? I’m pretty used to my name, so it’s hard to imagine changing it. Yeah, I got nothing. I’ll just leave it.
How did you meet your significant other? Bwahaha, a question I don’t have to answer. As a single lady, I have no significant other to talk about!
How do you take your coffee? In a cup that belongs to someone else? I’m not a coffee drinker.
What color do you have the most of in your wardrobe? Given the fact that I just decluttered my closet, I’m not really sure I have anything left! I do wear a lot of coral because people always say it looks good with my skin tone.
If you had $10,000 to spend on a vacation (and only a vacation!), where would you go? OMG, I need a vacation in the worst way. I’d love to go to Barbados. Another blogger is thinking about going – I can’t remember who it is at the moment – and it got me thinking how awesome it would be.
If you have kids, what is your biggest parenting mistake? Comparing Jayden to other kids. For obvious reasons, that’s not a good idea, but it’s really hard not to do it!
What one thing do you not like to admit about yourself? I can only pick ONE??? I hate admitting that I don’t know how to do something. Instead, I usually spend a lot of time with my BFF Google so I can learn on my own.
