I've Been Tagged!


I was tagged by Kara at My Thoughts and Book Reviews, THANKS Kara! J
Here are the rules:

Post 11 random things about yourself, answer the questions I ask you, then create 11 more questions for the people you tag and go to their blog and let them know they’ve been tagged.
If you don’t want to create a post for this, then please feel free to answer these questions on my blog.
Now for the random part:
1. I have always been fascinated with the Medieval Time Period. 
 2.  My dream was to visit a castle and visit Scotland.  I got to do both about a year ago when my husband and I took a trip to Scotland! AMAZING!! 

3. I have loved books ever since I was a little baby.  My mom says when I was a tiny baby, she used to put a pile of books next to me and I would pick each book up and babble at the words, pretending I was reading it.  This would keep me busy for hours.

4. I played the drums for eight years.  I played in my school band, school worship team, and youth group worship band.  

5. I have a heart for orphans and my husband and I feel we may be called to missions in the future.

6. After I graduated high school, I went on a 5 month mission trip with Youth With A Mission.  The first part (the training), was in Hawaii, and the second part (the actual mission work), was in India.  It was one of the best experiences of my life!!

7. I have also been on a mission trip to Romania with Global Expeditions.  I also led a trip to Hawaii with my youth group, who partnered with Youth With A Mission.  I then studied Missions in college and did an internship at the Spanish Health Ministry. 

8. I have been a Children's Librarian.

9.  For a long time, I have had chronic fatigue and thyroid issues.  I just recently found out that one major reason is because I am gluten and dairy intolerant!  Who would have thought?  Now I have been gluten and dairy-free for more than eight months and it has done wonders for my health!!!!!  Praise the Lord!!!

10. In June, I will have been married for five years to an amazing man!  He is an Engineer.  We got married in a place that looks like a castle.  : )

11.  I am left-handed, except when I play sports.

Now for the questions Kara asked:
1. What’s your favorite part(s) of blogging? 
I love meeting new people who also have the same passion for reading as I do!
2. Which do you love more- cats or dogs?

Definitely cats!  I have one tuxedo cat named Anabelle who is two years old and she's my little buddy : )

3. What is something you collect or something you wish you had more of? 

Books, pretty teapots, colored glass vases, pre-raphaelite art
4. Do you play video games, which ones? 

No.  When I was little, I used to play the old Sega games, but not anymore. 
5. Name an activity you enjoy doing with your family. 

My husband and I enjoy going to bookstores.
6. If you could meet one celebrity for lunch, who would it be? 

If it doesn't matter if they are still alive or not, I'd love to meet Audrey Hepburn and Lucille Ball.  As far as someone who is still living, I'd love to meet any of my favorite authors (see my favorite authors under the "about me" section). 

7. What’s your dream vacation? I would love to go back to Scotland!

8. Name about 5 books on your wish list and/or to be read list (books you want versus books you already have).  To Be Read:
Highland Sanctuary
by Jennifer Hudson Taylor
A Necessary Deception
by Laurie Alice Eakes
The Forgiven Duke
by Jamie Carie
The Companion of Lady Holmshire
by Debra Brown
The Merchant's Daughter
by Melanie Dickerson
9. What has been your favorite review so far this year? 

It was a lot of fun reviewing The Pirate and His Lady, because it was full of adventure and the book had so much in it to put in a review.

10. What website(s) do you visit most? 

I visit Goodreads and Facebook a lot.

11. What do you prefer, ebook or print book? 

Definitely print!
