I've been tagged by... Camille at Crazy Mama. I am new to her blog and looking forward to getting to know her better. 

The Tagged Rules
1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things 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 peeps!

 I started this post a several days ago and have since also been tagged by Farrah at 3 Kids, 4 Years. I am going to combine the posts by answering both of their questions, but only posting 11 random things about myself, creating only 11 new questions and tagging 11 other bloggers.

Yep, parent here. My husband and I have 11 children between us. My older children: Steven, Floyd, and Krystal. My husband's older children: Chris, Amanda, Candice, and Alex. Our children together: Tabitha, Amelia, Hannah and a little boy due to make an appearance Feb 17 via C-section.

Farrah's Questions to me:

1.) How many children do you have and do you want any more?
All together we have 11 children. I have 3 from a previous marriage. My husband has 4 from a previous marriage and we have 3 together with one on the way. While I would have loved more, we have decided this is our last child because I am almost 39 and this is my second c-section.
2.) What is your all time favorite movie?

While I love Twilight and Harry Potter, the movies leave a lot to be desired. I would have to say (because I haven't read the books) that I love the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, with Return of the King being my favorite
3. Do you have a favorite sports team?

The New York Giants (this was my father's football team), I also root for the Bills with my husband, but if they are playing the Giants I have to root for the Giants.
4.) What is the hardest decision you've ever had to make?

Deciding what to write down for this answer. No, really, I am not sure. I would have to say deciding to sign the divorce papers my ex-husband brought before me. My church was advising me not to sign as it would make me have a part in the divorce. But I couldn't afford a lawyer and didn't know what else to do. Plus my ex kept getting in my face and yelling at me about it when I said I would not sign. So in the end, I signed the papers.
5.) What is your least favorite food?

Clam chowder
6.) What's the first concert you ever went to?

My mom took me and a friend to see Stryper at Radio City Music Hall.
7.) How old were you when you got your first kiss?

Not exactly sure. Maybe 16 or 17.
8.) What was your first pet?

I had a goldfish growing up. This was when I was really young, between 5 and 10. It died the first night, so for the longest time my favorite color was orange.
9.)  Chocolate or white milk?

White. Chocolate is an occasional treat.
10.)  How do you deal with stress?

Not real well. I have a spot on my left index finger that is calloused because for over 20 years I will bite it there when I am stressed.
