If you've been tagged, you better do it!

So my friend Nicole did this on her blog and "tagged" all her blogging buddies. I guess that would include me. So here you go, another "getting to know Shannon" post...

Your Name: Shannon
1. What time did you get up this morning? 3:45, 5:00, 6:50, and finally 8:00 for good
2. Diamonds or Pearls? It really depends on my mood and what I'm wearing. A couple years ago I would have said diamonds, hands down. But Sam has really gotten me into pearls and I think if you have the right outfit on, pearls look way classier and more elegant than diamonds. But pearls don't sparkle!
3. What was the last film you saw? The Borne Ultimatum...Fantastic!
4. What is your favorite TV show? Arrested Development - far above and beyond any other show out there. But since it's not on the air anymore, my new favorite is the Office. But I also really like the Simpsons (old seasons) and Sam and I have been watching about a disk a day for the past month. And Hell's Kitchen. I'm embarrassed that I like that show (who am I kidding...I LOVE that show) but, I still watch it with baited breath every Monday night.
5. What do you usually have for breakfast? Special K Red Berries or Oat and Honey granola bar with milk.
6. Favorite cuisine? Sushi. I have been going through some serious withdrawals here. I can't wait to have a celebratory dinner at Zen 32 when the baby's born! But for now I really like anything with peanut butter or nacho cheese. I've also really been into comfort food (which for me is southern food- or "soul food"). Yum... maybe I'll fry me up some green tomatoes and okra when I get home!
7. What is your middle name? Marie
8. What food do you dislike? Well, my food tastes are a little off at the moment, but I really don't like chicken or pork right now. Or anything really strong tasting. But ordinarily I would say brussel sprouts.
9. What is your favorite CD at the moment? Not just at the moment, it's been my favorite CD for about 5 years now, but it would have to be Coldplay - Rush of Blood to the Head. I love them. I also like their X&Y CD, but not as much as the aforementioned. I'm also very partial to a "mixed" CD Sam made me when we were dating (called "Best of Love") that had all the love songs that reminded him of me. Very mellow alternative love songs, and lovely to listen to.
10. What kind of car do you drive? A 2000-something Jeep Liberty. But it's not mine. I own a 1999 Chevy Cavalier.
11. Biggest pet peeve? I have a lot so to spare you all I won't put anything.
12. Favorite item of clothing? Whatever fits! :) Normally I love sweatpants and a comfy shirt (and I still do), but at the moment I like anything that makes me look cute. I really like to be in real clothes so I don't feel so frumpy (since that's what I feel like most of the time), so any real clothes that look good I love. Right now my favorite is a really cute pair of denim Capri's and a brown empire waist shirt - perfect for my growing belly. Paired with pointy toed stilettos, I am ready to roll!
13. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation where would it be? It's a very close call between Egypt and Italy, but I think Egypt may just win.
14. Favorite brand of clothing? "The cheapest cute one I can find at the time" - that's taken from my friend Nicole, and I concur. Target brand (whatever it is, Massimo or Meadow Valley or whatever). Never fails you.
15. Where would you retire to? "Utah—yay family!" - again, I will steal Nicole's response! :) And not just family, but beauty.
16. What was your most memorable birthday? My 20th. I had mono (really bad, where I would sometimes sleep for days and wake up just to pee. I lost 15 was great!) and couldn't really do anything, so Sam had me come over to his house and he gave me a really beautiful quilt he had his Mom and sisters make that he was really proud of because he picked the fabric and stuff. He also made me cake and he and his roommates sang to me. Very simple but very sweet.
17. Favorite sport to watch? BYU FOOTBALL! Yay! I know they're really bad but if I could sit in the stands every game and watch it I would just for the memories (I love you Sam)
18. Favorite saying? Ugh. I hate sayings. But if I had to choose one it would be...nope sorry. I can't. I really hate sayings.
19. What is your Birthday? February 1st. The greatest month in the history of months, and I was the first thing to happen to it (that year at least).
20. Are you a morning person or a night person? Ummmm... afternoon.
21. Favorite Cookie? White chocolate chip macadamia nut from Subway, although sometimes I really like a good coconut macaroon or oreos and milk.
22. Buttered, Plain, or salted popcorn? Yes please. Actually, I like buttered at the movie theater, and plain or "natural" at home. I also really like fresh Kettle corn.
23. What did you want to be when you were little? Anything frivolous: a model, a dancer, a singer, a fashion designer, an actress. I also really wanted to be a mommy! :)
24. Your favorite candy? Mmmm. Baby Ruth.
25. What is a day on the calendar you are looking forward to? DECEMBER 12TH!!!!26. What is your favorite movie? Pride and Prejudice (the A&E version with Collin Firth), Harry Potters, Batman Begins (I had a dream last night I was Bruce was awesome!), and any good comedy (like Dirty Work, Tommy Boy, you know, comedies back when they were funny).
27. If you had a second home, where would it be? Well, if I had a FIRST home it would be in Utah. Then my second home would be in Mexico.
28. What would be your dream job? "Being a stay at home mom" - amen Nicolle! I am so excited!
29. Your favorite color? bright green
30. Dream car? Whatever gets me where I'm going.
31. How many pets do you have? None - but once we get a house that better change! I want a Bulldog named Cringer and a Rottweiler named Battlecat.
32. Favorite Dessert? I don't cream sandwiches are yummy. I've been really into "pones" lately (something my friend Jayme named) which are ice cream cones packed full of peanut butter. I also like ice cream cones packed full of whipped cream. I also like pumpkin pie. And cheesecake. And brownies. Um... I'll be right back.

Okay, I'm back and I settled for some beef jerky. :) I hope you all found this informative, and now I tag YOU! Shelley, Heather, Michael, Sam, Feldmans, Skousens, and Mills. You're it. Let's find out all about you.

Way to be a good blogging buddy, my friend! I find your list ever so interesting and informative, yet not too surprising (especially the parts about food--although I'm intrigued by the "Pones")! :)

Oh, by the way, you know the whole we like "the cheapest cute [brand we] can find at the time" thing? Well, I heard about this new clothing line by Sarah Jessica Parker (SJP) that only sells items for under $20. While I'm not a huge SJP fan, the frugality of it might be worth checking out.

My favorite was...ummm,afternoon!
