Blog tag

I was recently tagged in blog tag by Camilla.  (Her submission to the Quilter's Blog Fest was my favorite.  You can check it out here.)

So even though I'm rather late, I'm still participating! 

Here are the rules:

  • every tagged person has to tell 11 things about themselves
  • the person who tagged you asked 11 questions, answer them
  • ask 11 questions for the 11 blogs you're going to tag (the people you tag should have less than 200 followers)  
  • mention the blog that tagged you, but don't tag them back.

So 11 things about me.
1. I have a shoelace collection.
2. I hate shopping.
3. I love winter.
4. My favorite candy bar is Take 5 but since it isn't always available Reeses' Peanut Butter cups are my next choice.
5. I've collected umbilical cord blood from a pig.
6. I love taking naps.
7. My favorite way to exercise is by playing racquetball.  Swimming and Frisbee are close seconds.
8. I wish that Firefly hadn't been canceled.
9. I've gone skydiving.
10. The dead person that I'd like to most meet is Enoch (from Genesis 5:21-24) because it says that he walked with God and that he didn't die...he sounds interesting to me.
11.  I lived in Japan for two months and really missed sandwiches.

The questions I was asked:
  1. What is one of the best places you've been to?  St. Lucia
    The view off our porch
  2. Where would you like to travel to, even if not possible at the moment? The moon.  Or Mars. I have a not-so-secret desire to be an astronaut, but don't want to put in the work to actually be one.
  3. What's the best thing you've made?  I'm not sure about this one.
  4. What do your family/friends think about your blogging? They seem to enjoy it...especially my personal blog.  It's fun to get comments in real life about something that I wrote there.
  5. What else do you like to do in your spare time other than make stuff? Read and play games
  6. What's the last good book you read? I just finished "Let's Pretend this Never Happened" by Jenny Lawson...I cracked up so many times.
  7. What's on your "to read" list? What isn't on that list, really.
  8. What's your real job? Mother
  9. Would you choose it again? Why or why not? Mother...yes.  Stay-at-home mother...probably.
  10. How many places (different towns) have you lived in since you were born? 6..Indiana, New York, Michigan, Illinois, New York, Michigan.
  11. If you weren't living where you are, where would you live?  Upstate NY...I have some good friends up there that I miss.
I'm only tagging one person (because that's how real tag works).  Since there is only one person, I'll just let her answer the same questions that I was asked.

  1. When did you live in Japan? Why do I not remember this?

  2. My husband loved Firefly and then the movie Serenity, I'm not a fan but I'm crazy for Reeces' Peanut Butter Cups :) Don't know how I missed this post earlier! :)


Thanks for commenting...I love seeing what you have to say!
