I've been tagged!

I realize that it's Thursday and this is the second Thursday in a row that I haven't had a Thrifty Thursday post up for you guys. . .please forgive me.  I'm in need of forgiveness here!  I've just got a lot going on and my days honestly kind of got away from me.  As much as I'm *hoping* that my semester will settle down soon in terms of school work, it's not looking too promising.  But, I'm going to do what I can to make sure that I don't totally go AWOL on you guys.  Annnnyways, I was recently given another taste of blogger fame when I got tagged.  Now, is time for me to pass the fame along to some other very worthy bloggers.  Without further adeiu (I just realized that I have no freakin' clue how to spell that!). . . .

I've been tagged by my real life friend, Sarah, over at Downtown Southern
Here are the rules:
1. You must post the rules. (And link up who tagged you.)
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 tagged.
4. Tag eleven people and link them on your post.
5. Let them know you've tagged them!
11 Facts about little ole' me:
1. I grew up (for the most part) in Wyoming and will probably always think of it as "home"
2. After I graduated from college (the first time) I moved to Virginia and have been here ever since.
3. I HATE milk. . .except for in cereal.  In my opinion, that's the only tolerable way to have milk.
4. I have two younger sisters who used to beat me up when we were kids
5. I'm terrified (read: TERRIFIED) of clowns
6. I  sleep with my son's blanket when he isn't home and will wake up in the middle of the night and search for it if it falls off the bed.
7. My greatest career aspiration is to open an eating disorders clinic in Wyoming
8. I don't have a favorite food--I have alot of foods that I like, but nothing is my "favorite" because I feel that choosing something as my favorite would be discriminatory against all the other foods that I like.
9. I've chosen a career where I speak in front of people that I don't know (or don't know very well) all day long but I get extremely self-consious when I'm in front of people that I kind of know.  I either have to not know you at all or know you VERY well in order to not be nervous around you.
10. I'm 29 years old and still working on my Bachelor's degree--I graduate in May and am more excited than I probably should be
11. My son is my favorite person in the entire world.
