Question 1: How tall are you?
Hmm.. I'm not really certain. I'm not short though but I wouldn't say I'm extremely tall either.

Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?
I've always been extremely flexible. When I was younger a doctor said that I had something that made me more flexible and my bones could break easier because of it. I know, weird fact. :)

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
Uh, let's see. I don't really like it when the content is a bright color other than black,gray, or brown. For me it's too distracting. I also don't like when my photo in my post don't show up but it really can't be helped. :P

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?
When people interrupt me when I'm talking.

 Question 5: What’s your favorite song?

Here's my new fav!

 Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn't yours?
I've actually just made an account on Esty so I haven't explored many shops yet.

 Question 7: What's your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
Reading is a must! Also I love to blog and design in my free time. Photography is always fun to do.

 Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?
Just one?! ;) I really love cheddar sour cream and onion chips with this yummy ranch dip. I also like cherry coke with potato chips and ketchup.

 Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
We have four cats. Divinity, Snickerdoodle, Banilla, and Chip. We also have a pet fish named Sally.

 Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?
My favorite nonfictional book is probably Kisses from Katie. My favorite fictional book is The Book Thief.

 Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?
I don't really wear make-up.

 Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
When I was at church camp and we were helping out a mission. We had to wear hair nets since it required food. We wore them for quite a while and I didn't even notice mine was on. Everyone else took theirs off when we were done but I wad totally oblivious to the fact of the hair net that was still on my head. Someone actually had to tell me that I still had it on. Whoops...;)

 Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
 Sparking grape juice! I would probably get tired of it after a while though.

 Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?
Little Women and The Help.

Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?
Well, I'm homschooled, but I would probably pick artist. Not that I'm an insanely good artist but I do enjoy doing it.

 Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
I've always wanted to go to Ireland. My ancestors were from there and I think it would be a beautiful place to see.

 Question 17: PC or Mac?
I've only tried PC but would love to try Mac (although it normally has a major price tag).

 Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
I don't have a crush, date, boyfriend, or spouse. So no answer for this one. ;)
 Question 19: Favorite celebrity?
I'm not really in to celebrities I do like Karen Gillan but only because she played Amelia Pond in Doctor Who.

 Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with?
Only one???!! Well, I think I'll go with Maiya. I've known her from the start of my blogging experience. I believe we could be great friends and actually are but we only talk online.

I tag:
anyone else who wants to do it!

1. Why are they called 'Jolly Ranchers'? Who said that the ranchers were jolly?
I suppose that somewhere in an enchanted land where unicorns create what are now known to us as "Jolly Ranchers", were all quite happy(as unicorns always are) and just happened to be talented ranchers. That's why each Jolly Rancher gives us such happiness, all homemade by unicorns. Simple enough. ;)

2. Do you wake up or open your eyes first?
Wake up. I like to sleep in as long as possible. :)

3. Best compliment you've ever received?
Some people told me that I had really pretty hair so that's always nice to here.

4. Would you eat a bowl of crickets for $1, 000, 000?
If they were dead, and properly seasoned. ;)

5. Why do people say "heads up" when you should duck?
Because the world will never make since. ;)

6. What's the sickest you have ever been?
There was this one time that I had this horrid flu. I missed Halloween. :( I've also had the flu on Easter so I guess I'm just unlucky.

7. Do bald people get dandruff?
That would be tragical. I hope not for their sake.

8. Have you ever been in a food fight?
Hm... well yes and no. Not like in a public place but when I went to this one church we went outside and through pudding at each other and chocolate syrup.

9. Do you believe honesty is the best policy?
Yes, but it's much easier said than done.

10. Why don't woodpeckers get headaches when they slam their head on a tree all day?
They look like they're into rock music (with their red mohawks and such) so maybe they like the rhythm.

11. If you would join a circus, what would you perform?
I've always enjoyed doing flips so maybe something like that.

Morning's Blog Party
The Ups and Downs of My Not-So-Average Life
I'm doing Morning's some questions from her blog party! Click here to go to her blog and click her to go to the official post so you can do it as well.

1. What do you love about the fall season?
I love the colorful leaves, the fragrance of cookies just out of the oven, sweaters, mittens, boots, cool weather, pumpkins, food, and so much more!

2. If you walked in a mall and saw a guacamole chip hat, would you wear one or eat it?
Eat it!

3. What is one of the most frustrating or aggravating things in the blogging world?
When I post something and a week or so later I notice a typo. I'm a perfectionist so it's always very aggravating. Also when I can't follow someone's blog (when it says there's an error of some sort) but I've found out a way where a can follow someone without clicking on the join site button.

4. Would you rather build a snowman or sing in the rain? (See what I did there?)
I've built a snowman many times but singing in the rain is new. So yes, singing in the rain.
 I'm singin' in the rain, I'm singin' in the rain!

5. If you had to chose how you were a part of a theater or movie production, would you be: an actor, props designer, set designer, light/technical director, audio coordinator, costume director, music director, dance coordinator, stage manager, or a part of the audience?
Actress. :)

6. List your blogging inspirations (blogs and people).
Maiya from Wispy and Willowy, Tane from Fifth out of Ten, Abby from The Ups and Downs of My Not-So-Average Life, Rachelle from Beloved Bluebird, and the list goes on and on!

7. Do you think you could commit yourself to a Halloween costume made of lint, or a Halloween costume made of bubble wrap?
Bubble wrap would be fun but I would probably have to wear something under it(obviously). 

8. Do you tend to photo bomb people's photos, or divert from them?
If I do photo bomb then it's normally accidental. Usually I make the weirdest expression when I'm in the background of a picture. I don't know why, but I guess that the people will have a hilariously random photo to look back on.;)

9. What is one word you constantly have to keep looking up the definition to?

10. If you wrote an autobiography about yourself, what would you call it (if you couldn't place your name in the title) and why?
Probably something cheesy like "The Life of a Young Girl Who Overcame Her Dislike of Math.  Haha! ;)

8.Whats the craziest dream you've ever had?
I'm known to have extremely crazy dreams so let me have a little time to think. 
*thinks back to all the dreams I can remember* 
Okay, so I was at this church camp and it was sorta dark all the time there. I was just sitting on my bed in a cabin type dorm thing and I hear screaming. I was so shocked. This red headed guy who was my best friend in the dream told me that everyone was supposed to go to the main area of the camp. So we ran there and it was like a giant while building, like something you would see in DC.
  Everyone was in there and a person yelled, "Everyone keep calm. There are gummy people on the loose! It's because they had Obama care. Don't let them catch you or you'll turn into one too!" So, what do people do when gummy people are on the loos? Obviously they run frantically in every direction. So there I am running about, and I see all these colorful gummy people running after everyone else. They looked like gummy bears but shaped like a person. I know, weird! Suddenly a thought came to mind. "All they need is love." I said to myself and I ran up to one of them and gave them a hug. Do you know what happened? The gummy person turned into a real one. So then everyone started hugging the gummy people and we were all real again!
 The End.
