11 Random Things About Me Tag

Hello, I was tagged by Hayley at The Flaxen Owl do this tag.  Through this post, I wanted to be more open and to share some facts about myself.  I often find this type of posts written by other bloggers quite interesting.  Let's get started:


Rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions the tagger 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 that you’ve tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tagging section about ‘you are tagged if you are reading this.’ blah blah blah, you legitimately have to tag 11 people!



11 Random Things About Me:


1)  I am a city person.  I love everything about living in a city, the conveniences, restaurants, and shopping.  I thrive on the energy surrounding me.
2)  Although I am not the tidiest person myself, I do not like to be see messes in my own home. I feel extremely uncomfortable when I am visiting someone's home that is messy.
3)  I am always on the go and find it hard to relax.  I have been told that I need to learn to relax.
4)  I can't function and be productive if I get less than eight hours of beauty sleep.

6)  My favorite food in the world is Chinese food.  I enjoy cooking it and eating it.
7)  My favorite color was red, but it is blue now. Go figure! 
8)  I can be stubborn.  Once my mind is made up, it is hard to sway me.
9)  I am obsessed with my new iPad that I got from my company for Christmas.  I love all Apple products in general.
10) I have a dog that dreams a lot.  He is entertaining to watch when he tries to run lying down in his sleep.
11)  I have the most wonderful husband in the world.  Kudos to him for being so supportive and putting up with me.
