11 bits of randomness

This is a bit belated on my part, however, Kris at Fight Hard, Finish the Race tagged me so here it goes....

There are rules to this fun game that are as follows:
1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions 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 you’ve tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people. 

**This is for fun and you do not have to do this if I tagged you** :-)

My 11 random things are:
1) I am obsessed with celebrity gossip
2) I read at least 1-2 books every week
3) When I was younger, I hated pink and now its my favorite color
4) The Biggest Loser always makes me cry
5) I eat oatmeal every morning (I am total creature of habit!)
6) I love the smell of Nordstrom
7) I have always wanted a tattoo, but will never get one because I can't make my mind up
8) If I could do anything I wanted, I would own a workout facility
9) I make breakfast for dinner at least 2 times a week
10) I grew up on a dairy farm, but can't drink milk unless its in a latte
11) I could eat a bag of cherry nibs everyday

My questions from Fight Hard, Finish the Race:
1) Where is your favorite place to run?
I love to run on the upper south hill--Glenrose/Manito area
2) What's your favorite distance to race?
Half marathon
3) If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?
I know that this is random, but I have always wanted to go to Sweden.
4) Why would you go there?
When I was in grade school I did my country report on Sweden and became fascinated with the country.
5) What's you favorite type of food to eat?
Healthy food: Salmon & Quinoa 
Unhealthy food: BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger
6) What's your favorite "fashion" clothes brand?
I am a sucker for Seven & Citzen jeans (they make my booty look cute), but for athletic wear I love Brooks, Nike & Lululemon.
7) What's your favorite sport besides running?
This is a hard question! I am a total running geek! I would have to say if I had to watch another sport, I like figure skating. 
8) Do you like to dance? 
Ugh NO!!! I have no rhythm!!! This white girl CAN NOT dance!
9) What type of music do you listen to?
Right now I am obsessed with the 90s hits station on Slacker Radio. 
10) If you could meet one person (dead or alive) who would it be?
Audrey Hepburn (dead) and Reese Witherspoon (alive)
11) Why would you want to meet them?
They are both classy ladies
