Here in this little space of the online world, I share all manner of bookish things, including full content reviews, writerly snippets, encouragement for everyday life, and a whole collection of names & their meanings.

Alas, my computer is down again, but here's a fun post anyway! (Don't worry, the A+A post will come later.)

I've been tagged! Again! Thanks so much to Brittany from Daughter of the King, for sending the Liebster back my way.  :]

|| RULES ||
~ Thank and link back to the person who nominated you.
~ List eleven facts about yourself.
~ Answer the eleven questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.
~ Nominate nine bloggers who have less than 200 followers (excluding the one who awarded you. (Because I've had this award a couple different times...) I nominate anyone who wishes to join in the fun!

|| 11 FACTS ||
1.  The A-Team is my absolute favorite TV show.
2.  I have a freckle on my lower lip.  O_o
3.  I despise sea food.  Fish are friends, not food!  (I'm not vegetarian though, which--fun fact--is an Indian word meaning "poor hunter." I do love a good hamburger!  And bacon.  LOVE bacon.  If ever you find bacon seeds, let me be the first to know! ;D )
4.  I really want to own a parrot someday.  His name would be Jack Sparrow, and I would teach him to say, "Help! I've been turned into a parrot!"
5.  Mint Chocolate Chip is my favorite ice cream!
6.  If my life had taken a different path, I would have wished to be a professional ballerina.
7.  My siblings and I have always said we would one day build a huge castle/house that our families could all live together, and it would serve as a bed and breakfast for travelers.  We had the layout and everything!  It would be called The Green Dragon.
8.  I have a ring my parents gave me for Christmas that is in the form of an arrow.
9.  My favorite comic book is a western
version of Rapunzel by Shannon Hale.
10.  I'm clumsy. I fell off a stool (again) earlier this week...
11.  I hate insects, but love to catch mice, moles, and snakes.

Brittany's Questions!
1)  Favorite superhero?

          CAPTAIN AMERICA.  Need I say more? 
2)  If you could change your hair and eye color, what would you change it to?
          I would never change my hair color, I love being a brunette!  But if I could request an eye color change from God, I would ask that He make my eyes green.
3)  What's your favorite flower?
          The red Poppy.
4)  Favorite drink?
          Hmmm.  That's hard.  I've grown up on good ol' Southern sweet tea, but if I could choose a special drink for a treat, I'd want homemade, fresh-squeezed lemonade.
5)  Anna or Elsa?  (from Disney's Frozen)
          Oh dear.  I love them both! My fav is probably Elsa, 'cause she the eldest daughter (like me!), she carries herself like a queen, she seems wise beyond her years, and she would do anything to protect those she loves.
6)  Sweatshirts or tank-tops? 
          Hmm.  I'm a summer girl!  Unfortunately, the cold does bother me some. . .  So, let's go with tank-tops.  :]
7)  Flip-flops or boots?
          Flip-flops.  Though I prefer ballet flats any day.
8)  What's your favorite childhood memory?
          Reading a Louis L'Amour western at the age of two.  (I don't really remember it, except for the home video!)
9)  Favorite book of the Bible?
          "Story" book, would be Esther.  But I enjoy reading and re-reading the Psalms and Proverbs.
10)  Favorite quote?
          Ah! Too hard.  I kinda collect quotes. . .  So, here's a recent one I've discovered:  "Every morning is a beginning, a fresh start, and a man needn't be hog-tied to the past.  Whatever went before, a man's life can begin now, today." (Louis L'Amour, in his book Milo Talon)
11)  Favorite Pinterest board of mine [Brittany's]?
          Your Super Heroes!!!

Here are my questions for you:
1.  Of the three, who do you like best: Captain America, Iron Man, or Hawkeye?
2.  Which upcoming movie(s) will you most likely go see in theaters? (for example, How to Train Your Dragon 2?  The Amazing Spiderman 2? The Hobbit: There & Back Again?  etc...) Or will you simply wait for DVD and Redbox?
3.  Do you prefer reading fairytales, historical fiction, or futuristic novels?
4.  Digital e-book? or good ol' paper-turning-pages book?
5.  What would be your dream house: a small cottage or a medieval mansion?
6.  British accents or Australian?
7.  Tropical cruise ship or cross-country road trip?
8.  Would you prefer watching a drama production or actually participating in it?
9.  Favorite movie quote?
10.  If you could spend the day with your a favorite book or movie character, who would it be?
11.  What would be your kind of dream pet? (For example: mine would be a cuddly panda bear.  Maybe yours is a rhino? or a zebra? Eagle?

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
