11 Fun Facts About Me

Tag, I'm it! Special thanks to Jamie at I Look Good Today for tagging me in this latest round of getting-to-know-you blog questionnaire. This is so hard for me so I hope you enjoy. Take a quick glimpse at the rules, and then check out my answers below.

1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person must post 11 things about herself on her blog.
3. Answer the questions the "tagger" listed for you in her post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You must choose 11 people to tag and link to them in the post.
5. Go to each blogger’s page and mention that you have tagged her.

1. What is your motto in life? 
This is a hard one. I have no idea. I want it to be you never know unless you try and don't let fear get in the way of progress ... but I fail at those sometimes.  

2. Are you a morning or night person?
Definitely a night person. I never used to be that way but since my freelance work is done after my work that pays the bills it's almost 8 or 9 by the time I start illustrating or putting Etsy orders together, so night, but more by default then actually what I want to be.

3. Favorite childhood story? 
Trips to North Carolina, the Outer Banks, every year from the time I was six until about eighteen with my entire family. Twelve of us, six adults and six kids, in one house on the beach. To many great stories to pick just one. The Outer Banks will always have a special little place in my heart :-)

4. What is the farthest road trip you have ever taken?
Florida. We drove once when I was a child to visit my grandparents. My parents with two kids under the age of five and driving straight through the night. It wasn't the best time lol and as a result we never drove to destinations more then about eight hours away again. Flying became the way to go. 

5. What collection do you have right now?
Do clothes and shoes count? If so, that's it. O and books!

6. Coke or Pepsi?
Diet wild cherry pepsi!

7. What is your favorite table or board game?
Uno, Clue, and monopoly, although I haven't really played any of them in years and the last time I played Uno I was told I'm to competitive lol!

8. Do you have any piercings/tatoos?
Earrings and a belly button ring.

9. Favorite smell?
The ocean.

10. How do you feel most loved?
Another hard one. I'm not sure. My husband always makes me feel loved, even by just looking at me. LAME, I know :-)

11. When was the last time you did something for the first time?
Hmmmm... I made doughnuts for the first time I guess around thanksgiving. I loved it. I also got the babycakes doughnut maker for Christmas and now I'm going to be the doughnut making queen! I know you want to try one :-)
