A little Q & A action.

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Erika @ Chambanachik tagged me in a little Q & A that's been floating around, and I figured it would be fun to answer away, and then tag a few other blog friends!

1. Post the rules (and link up who tagged you).
2. Post eleven facts about yourself.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you, and create eleven new questions for those you tag.
4. Tag however many people you want.
5. Let them know you tagged them!

11 Facts about Me
1. I was born with a congenital short femur - meaning my right leg was shorter than my left.  I had lots of surgeries to correct it and now my legs are only millimeters different in length.
2. When I was little, I used to hum while eating dinner, and never realized it until others pointed it out or asked me to stop.  I still can be caught humming or singing around the house.  
3. I showed llamas when I was a teenager, and went to a National Llama Show when I was 13 - I showed a llama named Pretty Woman.
4. I have traveled to 7 countries.
5. My right eye is a little smaller than my left eye.  And when I am tired, it is more noticeable.
6. I like cleaning my house - vacuuming, sweeping, etc - and my husband thinks I am crazy for this.  
7. I married a man who is pretty much my opposite when it comes to cleanliness/organization levels. Although to be fair, the military has taught him some about keeping his stuff more organized.  Sometimes, at least.
8. I grew up wanting to be a Veterinarian, from the time I was in elementary school, until the time I was 20.  I thought I would go to school, start my own large-animal practice in a rural area, and live my life.  Ha!  I love how life throws surprises!
9. I have kept some kind of online journal/blog for 10 years. And have an entire box full of paper journals, starting from the time I was 7 or 8.  
10. My dream (well, ONE of them!) is to own an airstream trailer one day.  I love those things!
11. My favorite movie has, and potentially always will be, Wild Hearts can't be Broken. 

Erika's Q's for Me
1. What is something you're known for?
It depends on who you ask!  My laugh, perhaps?

2. What dessert would you make for me if I came to visit?
Oh man!  There are so many to choose from!  I think I would make you a chocolate bundt cake with a buttercream frosting.  Maybe even some homemade ice cream to go with it.

3. If you could have ANY animal for a pet, what would you choose?
An elephant.  Or a giraffe.

4. Where do you see yourself in 50 years?
I see myself with Max, living on the coast, by the ocean, spending lots of time outside.

5. What was the best day of your life so far?
I've had a lot of good days in my life, but today, I would say the day Eliana was born.

6. What subject do you know more about than most people?

7. What would be your perfect date night?
A picnic on the beach, followed by games and dessert in front of a roaring fire.

8. Where is your favorite place to be?
With Max and the kids.  I know that sounds cheesy, but there have been multiple times that my heart feels like it's about to burst - and it's not because of where we are, but rather that my little family is together and happy.

9. What is something valuable you've learned from your mom or dad?
Conflict is not a bad thing, and communication is critical.

10. What color do you like to wear the most?
Black or grey.  If I am feeling exciting, then purple!

11. What did you want to be when you grew up? (Are you there yet?)
Like I said above, I wanted to be a Veterinarian when I grew up.  Now, I want to be a mama and wife that glorifies God.
