4.Go to their page and tell them
5.No tag backs!
Let me start by telling you 11 things about me:
1. All of my life I've been called Marilyn instead of Marlyn. It's pronounced like Marlene, but it confuses people because of the "Y". I hardly ever correct anyone anymore.
2. I've always loved music. Listening to it, singing it, and playing it (only guitar since I don't know how to play anything else). I dream of someday starting a band with my hubby and my future kids.
3. I'm a Disney fanatic! I've loved Mickey Mouse ever since I can remember, and get extra happy when at the happiest place on Earth.
4. I'm addicted to Coke (the kind you drink). I'm planning on getting sober pretty soon.
5. I love Mexican candy and sour candy.... and Hot Cheetos. (Man, I really need to get on a diet!)
6. I just graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting.... and I am currently looking for employment. (Just in case any of you can hook me up with a job. ;P)
7. I love taking photos! I take pictures of everything (as you can tell on my Instagram).
8. I love getting crafty! I am planning on learning how to sew soon. My mom is going to teach me... she's the sewing guru. I also sell my handmade bows at Little Red Bowtique if you wanna check 'em out! :)
9. I've lived in California all of my life, and I love it! I don't plan on ever leaving this place.
10. I love my family! They are my world.
11. I love dressing up! Sometimes I dress up even when I have nowhere to go. Like now.
Okay, Now on to Adrian's Questions:
1.When did you start blogging and what keeps you going?
I started my blog around 2010, but just committed to it recently. I don't plan on being a bad blogger anymore. My blog abandoning days are over!
2.If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
I could live anywhere I would live in London. I've never been there, but I've fallen in love through pictures. My husband got to go for one of his deployments and he talks about it all the time. We plan on visiting one day! Hopefully sooner than later!
3.Do you collect anything?
I collect vinyls, cameras, and owls.
4.Do you have any pet peeves?
I do! I hate people being noisy in movie theaters. I even get mad at myself when I make too much noise! :P

I don't have any co-workers at the moment, but I hope I can share my blog with them whenever I do have any! :)
6.Has anyone recognized you from your blog?
Not yet. Hopefully one day.

8.Would you rather walk barefoot through a hallway full of cockroaches or eat one cockroach?
Ewwww... This is a hard one. I would probably walk through a hallway full of cockroaches.... or run!
9.If you could only pick one shoe to wear for the rest of your life, which shoes would it be?
I love all of my shoes, but I would pick my yellow rubber flats! They are my old faithfuls.

Around 15-20 minutes.
