4. Become debt free & build security for my family, so we can then bless others financially also.

5. Continue to grow closer to God, building My family's faith & sharing the Gospel with those we meet, by using the talents and gifts God has provided us.

6.Continue to make money by creating and sharing my thoughts and beliefs through artistic expression: all the while hoping that my art will impact others. "Holly Kennedy

: All I know is, if you don't figure out this something, you'll just stay ordinary, and it doesn't matter if it's a work of art, or a taco, or a pair of socks! Just create something... new, and there it is, and it's you, out in the world, outside of you, and you can look at it, or hear it, or read it, or feel it... and you know a little more about... you. A little bit more than anyone else does... Does that make any sense at all?" Quote from PS I LOVE YOU

11 things on the 11th

Well I have been tagged in my friends blog Sorta Crunchy for this fun little blog post, so here it goes! Enjoy!


1. Post these rules.
2.You must post 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the questions set for you in their post.
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them that you've tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tagging section about you are tagged if you are reading this. You legitimately have to tag 11 people.

11 Random Things:

1. I have had a close encounter of the scary kind - with a bear!
2. I use fast food as a supplement for daily fiber like Metamucil.
3. I absolutely cannot sleep with socks on!
4. I am more like a cat then a dog, I only like to cuddle on my terms!
5. I can't stand the feeling of unglazed ceramic, it makes me cringe just thinking about it!
6. My best friend and I have planned a vacation for 2017 to Europe, many years ago in advance, with no idea if we will be able to go.
7. My favorite tissues are Puffs Plus with lotion, and I will pay extra for them.
8. I could spend all day at the zoo watching the Grizzly bears if I had the opportunity to.
9. I have piloted a Piper airplane when I was 14.
10. My favorite sculptures are made of colored glass.
11. I love moments when I get to rub Joslyn's back, she loves it too.

Questions for me:
1. Which season is your favorite and why? Definitely Fall, I love cool weather but not cold and the colors are pretty, but I love the fact that the allergies aren't as bad as spring.
2. What is the best deal you've ever gotten on anything? Joslyn, she will probably cost me millions of dollars in her lifetime but that is a steal since she is priceless.
3. What is your favorite dessert? Hands down, ice cream. With toppings, without toppings, cone or cup, I love them all! My favorite flavor is Capachino Chunky Chocolate.
4. When is the last time you went to the dentist? Ouch, this is embarrassing but before Joslyn was conceived. I was supposed to have a cleaning while I was pregnant and couldn't do it, because brushing my teeth made me gag.
5. Do you prefer older homes or new construction? Hmm, hard question for me. I love new homes with old touches. My plan for my future lottery winnings (yeah right!) were to build an old looking castle on the outside with a completely modern inside. I even want a moat!
6. What is your favorite social media platform and why? Facebook! I love how it connects me with my family and friends all over the globe and I still feel very connected with them. It is easy to use.
7. Photography: do it yourself or go to a professional? Professional, I really love newer photographers that don't have a studio yet. They tend to be cheaper and really seem to enjoy their jobs. They also can be very creative and flexible. I love to feel like I am supporting the little guys!
8. What is the last thing you made? My crunchy rice and lemon pepper chicken. Making my famous guacamole later today!
9.Thrifting: love it or hate it? Umm I am kind of weird for a girl and don't like shopping unless its grocery shopping. I might like it more if I had lots of money, time and no toddler to tote around.
10. Sunrise or Sunset? Um sunset, since I hate mornings!
11. What is your guilty pleasure? Hmm, Hip hop and Pop music since it is taboo for "Christians" to listen to and my husband doesn't like it and I feel bad letting my child listening to it.

Questions for my Taggees:
1. What is the first adventure you would or did put on your own adventure list?
2. If you have an addiction, what is it, or what would you choose to be your addiction if you had to have one?
3. Where would your dream vacation be?
4. What do you eat that not many others eat?
5. Country or City?
6. If you had to choose one sense to lose which would you pick?
7. What would you do with $1000 dollars cash today?
8. If you could have a wild animal as a pet what would you pick?
9. Who is your secret celebrity crush?
10. What is your favorite musical?
11.Paper, plastic, or recycle bags?

  1. well thanks for the tag! It is interesting to read about your random facts..a vacation with your best!! and I can't sleep without socks on!!!
    and no way sunrise, sunset all the way!
    Happy Sunday!

  2. Love your answers! Totally with you on the Puffs Plus. We mostly use handkerchiefs, but if I am going to use regular tissue, I want the GOOD STUFF. Definitely worth the extra $$$.

    PS - I like hip hop, too!

  3. momto8- you are very welcome on the tag, it was fun! Happy Sunday to you also! Sunsets are wonderful but, I did catch a sunrise this morning and it was special because I never see them! :-)

    Megan- Thank you for the tag, this was fun! Hmm, handkerchiefs that is a cost saving idea! Will have to consider that, better for the Earth and momma's patience, since everyday I have to keep Joslyn from pulling out all the tissues ( or she calls them tissyshoes).
