i've seen this idea floating around blog land,
and with an open invitation from jen, i have decided to play along. :)
here are the rules:
post a photo of yourself and 11 random things
answer the questions set for you in the original post
create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them
go to their blog/twitter and tell them you've tagged them.
1. i am a list maker. i constantly have to-do lists floating around. meals for the week. errands to run. pseudo-budgets. (although my lists are often in ten different places so they don't always serve their purposes that well...)
2. i wear fake and real glasses. these were fake.
3. i'm a touchy person. i love to cuddle (my hubby, friends, kids, dogs, cats, etc).
4. i always have a bottle of water with me. i get anxious without it. (not even kidding...)
5. sleeping is one of my hobbies. i can fall asleep anywhere & sleep through anything. i love napping, drifting off on long car rides or just dozing on the couch watching tv. (those of you reading this that know me, are shaking your heads, "yes").
6. i have only been out of the country once, to jamaica, on our honeymoon.
7. i don't like steak. i've only eaten it a few times in my life. it kinda freaks me out. a huge hunk of meat just staring at you on the plate. no, thanks.
8. my hubby is a foot taller than me. he wears size 16 shoes. i wear 8. :)
9. i have always wanted to get into photography. i think it would be fun to carry around a really nice camera and learn actual techniques.
10. i sleep with socks on. during every season.
11. i'm realizing more and more that i enjoy wearing skirts and dresses more than pants.
eleven questions to answer:
1. if money, schooling or time was no obstacle, what career would you choose?
hmm...still trying to figure this one out in real life too. but it would somehow involve art + communications + kids.
2. what's one thing you look forward to every day?
not gonna lie...eating!
3. what is your number one, all-time, favorite blog?
TOO hard to say, but one of my most recent faves is my little loves. bekah is a beautiful person, inside and out, with two of the cutest little girls.
4. biggest online pet peeve?
not annoyed too much, but facebook has started to get on my nerves a bit. a lot of junk. i am more a twitter girl now.
5. what is your all time favorite book?
because i like to look at pictures more that 'reading,' i would say any of sabrina ward harrison's art journals. they are an instant pick me up.
6. what would your "last meal" be?
carbs, veggies, seafood, chocolate. mmm...
7. do you believe in love at first sight?
no. a spark, maybe, but not love.
8. what would your ideal sunday morning consist of?
being able to sleep in AND lead worship with my hubby ;) (and probably eat at cracker barrel)
9. why do you blog?
i love the way it makes me look at life creatively. i love the community of bloggers i have found. and i love sharing ideas and documenting inspiration.
10. if you had to choose one color to wear forever, what would you pick?
probably black (but could i wear a fun scarf or earrings?? :)
11. what is your all time favorite band?
kings of convenience always puts me in a great mood. but john mayer has always had my 'musical heart.'
