If you REALLY knew me Tuesday

Happy Tuesday Lovelies!

I have decided to start a new link-up this week! I had so much fun doing this post that I decided it would be fun to do a little link-up.
With all the new followers I am receiving (and becoming) it might be fun to get to know each other all a little bit more. (:

Here we go!

If you REALLY knew me, you'd know that....

- I ADORE Italian food. I love pasta and bread! I would put garlic on everything if I could! My favorite meal to cook is bow tie pasta chicken alfredo with broccoli. Sooo delicious!

-   I am half Mexican (dad), a quarter Portuguese (my Grammie), and a quarter Italian (my Papa). My hubby is half Mexican, a quarter Irish, and a quarter Italian. Our kids will have GREAT skin.

My Grammie, Papa, and niece. She is 18 now.
 - I was in street tap when I was younger. It was like tap dancing... but with objects - like brooms and stuff. lol. I was also in baton, ballet, and jazz. My aunt put me in dance to socialize me because I was super shy back then. Not anymore! hehe. I was even in the town's 4th of July parade (in HORRIBLE outfits!!!) lol

- I don't like cannot STAND the taste (or smell) of cilantro. It is not even like a "oh ya.. I don't really like cilantro". It is a true hate. I never ever cook with it and can smell it in any food. Once my mother-in-law bought these hamburgers that had cilantro in them... yup... I didn't eat them, so she had to buy different hamburgers for me (sorry mama!). This makes it EXTREMELY difficult to eat at Mexican food places since the majority of the food has cilantro (and/or tomato .. which I also despise).

- I have always wanted to go in a hot air balloon... although I would probably puke from my fear of slow moving things in the air.
There is this "ride" in Santa Cruz that my sis-in-law and I went on. Its not even a ride...... its like a transporter for one side of the boardwalk to the other. Oh my scariness!!! Okay we went on tons of rides while we were there! It was so much fun.... but that thing was one of the scariest things ever! You are just like SLLLOOOWWLLLYY floating above everyone. bleh. My stomach is in knots just thinking about it.

Well I hope you all feel like you know me a little bit better!

If you wanna join the fun little link then grab the code and put it on your post in HTML. Make sure to come back and add your post to the link up so we can all get to know one another better! (:

Wait, you're half Mexican and you don't like cilantro??? I'm not a big fan either. But Angel--who is Mexican--grows it here and loves to put it on everything. I might put like two leaves on a taco but he'll load his food up with it and I won't kiss him for a while afterwards because cilantro has such a strong smell!
And I'm already jealous of my future half-mexican children who will, I'm sure, be actually able to tan. Unlike me, I stay white forever, no matter how much I'm in the sun. Do you both speak Spanish? That's Angel's first language--I'm still learning, but we hope to raise our kids speaking both Spanish and English.

I also hate cilantro.
Ew. Yuck. Gross.
I never had it before (because my mom hates it), so when I went to Costa Rica I noticed it right away.
I didn't find out what it was until I came home and had it in something.
I was like "That's it!" Haha.
Did you know there is a website called IHateCilantro where you can buy t-shirts and mugs and stuff?
