tag ~ i'm it!

I've been tagged by Lisa @ Shine your Light in a fun little Q & A game spreading through
the blogosphere. I answer 11 questions, tag 11 bloggers with 11 questions I come up with.

Here goes....

1. What's your favorite place in the United States?
  Colorado, I love the four distinct seasons!
  But, I love Manhattan and could live there in a heartbeat!     
2. Where would you love to visit that you've never been before?
I'm kind of boring - I'd rather go back to a place I know I love!
France or Italy
3. Favorite song you're loving right now?
All of the Whitney Houston hits that are being played. Such a tragic story. 

4. Good book recommendation?
Other than House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Better Homes & Gardens, design books,
and the newspaper I just don't read.
Horrible, I know, I just can't sit still long enough.
There is always something else I'd rather do. I've read Blogger for Dummies (ha!).
  I think the last time I read an entire book was about five years ago when I was in the hospital.

5. What's your best quality?
  The eternal optimist!

6. What is something about yourself you'd like to change?
I wish I liked to spend time reading so I could intelligently discuss book recommendations
other than design magazines!
7. What is the number one thing you hope to accomplish in 2012?
 Get on the social network bandwagon!
 I'm realizing it's probably a necessity if I don't want to be left in the dust.  

8. What is your favorite project that you've ever accomplished?
Without a doubt, starting my blog!
It was a big project for me, I spent a lot of time planning exactly what I wanted. 

9. What is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you?
 A friend hosted and planned a surprise birthday party along with my other friends
 and family a couple years ago.

10. Favorite kitchen or home improvement tool?
 We don't really have tools other than your basic drill, hammer, hand saw.
  I'd say my sewing machine or  hot glue gun!

11. What do you enjoy about blogging?
 Oh my goodness, I can't tell you how much I love it!
Even in the short five months I've been doing it I love the friends I've met
and can't wait to them in person!
Sharing the projects and hopefully letting readers know it doesn't have
 to be expensive or difficult to have a place you and your family love.

Thanks for your sweet comment yesterday over at Inspired Design... it led me to your blog which I am now happily following. I have not heard one person say they don't love Colorado, I've never been but hear it is beautiful! xo

Thanks Pam! I am flattered that you added my name to the list! I love reading your answers and I will try to write up my answers soon. I have been procrastinating with a few other ones I was tagged in so I will try to get myself moving! Have a great day!

annie@mostlovelythings said...

I think we could be friends! I love Colorado and grew up in Denver, but love NYC. Oh and #7...I'm totally going to be left in the dust when it comes to Social terrifies me. Can't believe you've only been blogging for five months!

I'm with you on Manhattan, reading materials, and your blog. Love them all! Thanks for sharing all of your creativity. You were born to blog!
