Tag, You're It! 11 Things About My Life

One of my blogger friends, Jamie at A Rough Diamond tagged me in this game so, why the heck not! Join the fun. I am a rule follower so...

Here are the rules set by Jamie:
1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and then write 11 things about your life. (I didn't see this on Jamie's so, I just assumed the 11 questions following were the 11 things about you)
3. Answer the questions for you set in the original post.
4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and tell them you have tagged them.

Here are the questions Jaime posted and my answers:

1. What is your most vivid dream?

Hmm, I think perhaps the one where I was falling off the face of the earth, and holding on to nothing but some glass vases that were embedded in the edge. Took me half a day to get over that one, age 5?

2. When you want to feel comfortable, what outfit do you put on?
My pajama pants with the pink sunglasses all over, and some comfy cotton top.

3. When you are alone, do you turn on the TV, open a book, or sit at the computer?

I think none of the above. I listen to music and dance as a form of prayer.

4. What family member are you most like and what about you is similar?

Hm, I am like my dad in that I am strong willed, but like my mom in that I don't like big parties and prefer small intimate gatherings, and relish alone time. I guess that makes me an introvert.

5. What song makes you think of 7th grade? Seriously? I got nothing.

6. How did you meet your spouse? I was performing in a worship dance group at his church.

7. Mountains or beach? Beach, definitely.

8. You need to relax. Where in your house do you go?

My bedroom, every other room is taken over by children.

9. What is your favorite form of exercise? Dance

10. How many houseplants do you have? None, and if they want to live they best not live here.

11. How much time do you devote to reading/commenting/blogging per week? I try, (key word being try) to fast from, (that is refrain from) facebook and blogging 3 days a week. Sometimes I find "emergency" reasons though, like "Susy Q may need me desperately and the only way I connect with her is through facebook, and she could be dying this very minute!" On the not-fasting days, I don't count, but I should.

Here are my questions for you!

1. What was your favorite stuffed animal?

2. What was your first memory of experiencing God in a profound way?

3. In heaven, what will your dream-home be like?

4.Do you ever just shop for yourself in stores anymore? Where?

5.What did you think you were going to be when you grew up?

6. Favorite Saint? (I know it's hard for some of you so, one of your favorite saints will do)

7. Food you absolutely still cannot eat?

8. If you could live in any time period, where would you best fit in?

9. What flower are you?

10. Favorite memory of your grandmother or grandfather?

11. Favorite meal at a restaurant?

I guess I am tagging.... Julie, Cari, Sarah, and Dwija.


  1. That picture of you is great, V.! And I refuse to believe that child with you is the baby. I will instead believe that you stole him from WalMart or something, because there's no way he's that big already.

    Ok, writing mine now...

    1. Thanks, it was the only one I could find of me that was fairly representative and not 10 years old. If I got him at walmart I am going back and buying them out. ;)

  2. a beautiful picture! and a fun post...always interesting to me to meet other Catholic bloggers! My recurring dream was I was at my 6th week post partum check and my OB said, "oh I don't know what to say...looks like you are still pregnant."
    I am your newest follower..pls follow back if you can.

    1. I enjoyed spending some time on your blog. :) Thank you!
