A couple months ago there was this very sweet game of tag going through the blogosphere called 10 things/11 things. I, only being a blog reader, was not able to take part in this. BUT I thought it would be a great way for anyone interested get to know me a little better. 
There are 5 rules:
1.Post these rules.
2.Post a photo of yourself and 10 random things.
3.Answer the questions set for you in the original post. 
Normally it would be a blogger that has tagged me, but like I said Im pretty late in the game.  One of my new favorite blogs (withlovediana, who also inspired this self tag) did happen to leave the tag open! Thank you Diana & yay me!! 
4. Create 10 new questions and tag people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and tell them you've tagged them.
As for rule #4 & #5, because I am late Im gonna go ahead and just keep the tag open. If anybody out there just wants to tag themselves or answer the questions for fun, feel free!!
Away we go...

10 Random things about me:
1. I cry every single time I watch the very last Harry Potter movie, a lot!! I cry when the professors are protecting Hogwarts, I cry when they go back to the night Harry Potter's parents died, I cry when he realizes he has to die...its ridiculous but I can't help it!! 

2. When I was pregnant I secretly wished my Little's eyes would be brown!! Dada has green/hazel eyes and everybody kept saying how awesome it would be if Little had his eyes.  But I don't look like either one of my parents really and I knew that even if I couldn't have a little replica of myself, at least he could have my eyes.  They didn't come out exactly as dark as mine, but I revel in the fact that people tell me he has my eyes. Its like a secret we share. 

3. I have a terrible fear of ZOMBIES. I can't watch a zombie movie without it weighing on my mind for days, If i even think about zombies too long I will have a nightmare. So yes, I will possibly have a nightmare tonight. :(

4.  I hate posting pictures that Ive taken of myself!! I will take them, like a lot of people, but the thought of people looking at them makes me cringe!! The only way I will post a photo that I've taken with me in it, is if there is somebody else in it as well. Did that make sense? (was so hard to take the photo above!)

5. I can spend hours watching movie trailers online!! The weird thing is, I even watch old trailers, WHA?? Yes movies I have already seen, Ill watch the trailers! 

6. This is more like a part 2: I HAVE to watch the trailer at the movies, If i go to the movies and miss any trailers it feels weird and I can't watch the movie right.  I usually get a little grumpy!

7. I wish I liked onions. I hate hate hate onions but they always look so good and they are always in food I love. Everytime I try to taste them, thinking maybe its changed or they're cooked a different way, its disastrous. 

8. Another part 2: Once in high school I wanted this ring I could not afford, so I begged and begged my parents to buy it for me. Instead they both decided that If I could eat a big sliver of uncooked onion they would buy it for me, those sneaky parents knew my nemesis. So I thought about it and then down the hole, after gagging and choking for couple of minutes I managed to get it down. I proudly wore my ring almost every day... I have not idea where it is now. 

9. Chuca is a nickname my mom gave me, its the last part of my last name PaCHUCA. When Dada and I were dating he heard my mom call me this several times and started calling me Chuca as well. Then when I got preggo with Little he started calling me Mama Chuca, I like it. 

10. One of my favorite authors is Sandra Cisneros and one of my all time favorite books is The House on Mango Street. I love reading it to this day.
