Katherine at The Bailey Daily tagged me for some blog tag.  I was pretty excited about this because it was the first time I have been blog tagged.  Another blog first for me.  Next on the list will be a blate.

- You must post the rules.

- Answer the 11 questions that the tagger posted for you and then create 11 questions to ask the people you've tagged.

- Tag 11 people and link them in your post.

- Post their button on your post if they have one.

- Let them know you have tagged them.
Now is the time where I will admit that I am a terrible blog tagging person right now.  I thought and thought and thought about creating 11 questions and I honestly couldn't think of anything.  I blame my fogging brain.  And then I thought of who I would tag and I got super self-conscious (I am an engineer afterall.  Social skills are not my forte).  I promise things will get better and I will be able to play nicely in the future.
But I will answer the 11 questions Katherine came up with.  :)
1. What's the best fashion advice you've ever received?
I'm an engineer and spend most of my time around men.  In fact, it is very rare that I see a woman in my normal day to day life (sad but true).  So after thinking about this for a LONG TIME, the best I could come up with was "put on all your accessories and then take one off."  Since I usually don't wear much in the way of accessories, I tend to follow this rule by not wearing any.  This kind of makes my husband made because he bought me some BEAUTIFUL earrings for our wedding and I don't wear them very much.  (Pretty safe to say, he isn't too thrilled about getting me any more expensive jewelry.)

2. Who do you most admire?
Oh my gosh I SUCK TODAY!!  I can't think of any one person.  I think in general, I admire positive, faith living people.  I tend to be a bit negative and have my doubts about God and His miracles.  I want to be more like the positive and faith living people.

3. Favorite blogger?
Grace at Camp Patton.  She writes about her life as a resident's wife raising 2 babies, but very sarcastically.  She's hilarious.  She is also one of the first bloggers that reached out to me and got to know me.  Plus she had thyroid cancer and has sent me numberous information and encouraging e-mails.  Hopefully I can be that encouraging and helpful to someone going through this crap.

4. Would you rather spend money on clothes or home decor?
Clothes.  I really like the way our home looks right now.  Plus, we are currently renters and really there is only so much you can do in a rental since, ya know, we don't own it.

5. Biggest Fear?
Honestly, my biggest fear has alway been getting cancer and dying.  That is kind of dark, but true.  I honestly think that is why I have thyroid cancer.  God knew I wouldn't be able to handle a kind of cancer that didn't have an excellent prognosis.  Now my fear is that the cancer will have spread or will come back someday.  I need to get over that because it is a reality I will have to live with.

I'm aware that a more light hearted answer of "I'm afraid of octopii" (as the multple of octopus) would have been more appropriate, but it wouldn't have been the truth.  I am kind of afraid of bugs in general (thanks a lot Lyme Disease and pseudolymphoma).

6. Do you have any pets?
My husband and I currently have one dog, named Taylor.  She is the BEST dog ever I think.  Seriously... everyone that meets her wants to steal her from us.  And we are hoping to get a puppy in the next couple of months.  You can read about that (if you haven't already) HERE.

7. What was the last thing you pinned on Pinterest?

{from my pinterest}

I MUST make these before my low-iodine diet starts.
8. What is your best tip for fellow bloggers?
Be consistent.  Every time I take a few days off from blogging, the number of visitors and pageviews I get drops considerably.  It takes a bit of planning, but write ahead of time and try to post consistently.

9. Beach or Mountains?
Right now, I would pick beach.  But it would have to be a warm beach.  Oregon coasts are FREEZING cold.  I could really use a warm location right about now.

10. What do you do to relieve stress?
Read, blog, have my husband rub my back.

11. Chocolate or vanilla?
Chocolate.  Hence why I need to make those baked smores.  :)
Thanks for tagging me, Katherine!  That was fun.  Next time I will follow all the rules.  Promise.


  1. Thanks for joining in! I loved reading everyone's responses. Those baked s'mores look incredible!!
