Blogger Survey, and a Fun Award!

I have never participated in a blogger survey before, so this should be fun! I was tagged by Kristi from Keeping up with Kristi.

The Rules:
1. You must post the rules.
2. Post 12 fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create 12 new questions for the people you tagged.
4. Tag 12 people and link them on your post.
5. Let them know you've tagged them!

So here are my 12 fun facts: 
1. I am really good at guessing what time it is. I'm usually within 5 minutes. Weird, huh?
2. I once ate a huge bag of Sour Patch Kids and then couldn't taste anything for 3 days. 
3. I played the piano through HS and wanted to be a famous concert pianist. That changed in college when I decided that 5 hours a day of practice was pure torture. 
4. I love kids and was a nanny in college for 3 years. My favorite job ever.
5. My favorite candy is skittles. MMM, taste the rainbow. 
6. I've been to Germany, France, Poland, Spain, and Italy. I love to travel! 
7. My favorite color is blue. And green. Greenish blue. 
8. I'm having a really hard time coming up with these facts. 
9. I've been blogging for 2 years now. I can't believe it's already been that long.
10. My favorite food is Italian; anything with fresh basil and tomatoes is the best.
11. I've read Wuthering Heights 6 times, and every time I read it I cry.
12. I'm going to Los Angeles soon for a vacation and I can't wait!

And here are my questions from Kristi: 

1. What is your favorite childhood memory?
Wow, it's hard to choose just one, but I would have to say one of my favorites is when my mom and I made a Barbie mansion out of cardboard boxes. I would play with that thing for hours on end, and recreated the entire "White Christmas" movie with my Barbies. Good times.
2. Who do you look up to?
I really look up to my parents. They raised me and my 3 siblings so well and are such great examples of Godly people.
3. What does your name mean? It means "Who is like God?" It is the feminine form of Michael, and it's Hebrew in origin. 
4. If you won $10,000 how would you spend it? Well, my first instinct was to say a shopping spree... but honestly, I would love to see that money help people out who are in need.
5. How come you blog?
I blog because I love it! Really, I can't think of a better reason. I just enjoy sharing my thoughts and hearing other people's and seeing the fun projects that people come up with. It's very inspiring.
6. Where do you feel safest?
It's going to sound so cliche, but definitely in my husband's arms. I feel safest and most content when he is close by.
7. What is your dream vacation?
I'm dying to go back to Monaco with Josh, I went there years ago with my Aunt and Uncle and it was so beautiful and romantic, I have always dreamed of going there again with my husband!
8. If you could speak another language what would it be?
9. Coffee or tea?
Depends on the time of day! Coffee in the morning, tea at night. Yum!
10. pen or pencil
Definitely a pen. Pencils are annoying.
11. What was your favorite subject in school?
I loved my literature class in college that was all about Charles Dickens. It's the only class I never missed and was always on time to!
12. What is the most important thing in your life?
My relationship with God. It's how I relate to everyone else around me!

  4. Thank you so much! I just posted my responses to your questions. :) I would have much rather taken a class on Dickens. Instead, I was dumb enough to take a class on E.M. Forster. I've never been so annoyed by a man in all my life, haha. :)
