Whoa! Piling Up!

Wow, I have four tags to do! Ladies, I'm sorry for not getting to them sooner. Here we go. :)

This one is from Miss Raquel @ God's Daughter. Thanks Raquel!
one-- What picture does your calendar have for the month of October? My calendar doesn't have a picture. :)
two-- What are three things that you can grab from where you're sitting? A remote, a pink cup, a watch. Haha, those are some odd things. lol :D
three-- What is something that you've been collecting since you were really young...and sometimes think to yourself 'hm...I'm kind of outgrown for this', but just can't stop? Umm, I collected hot wheels at one time, but I don't anymore. You see, my Pa-pa has a big collection out in his garage, and I thought, "Hey, I want to start a collection!" I had this idea to find those really odd, one-of-a-kind hot wheels to collect. I did! But I gave a lot of them away. I had close to 100, now I just have, like 40 something.
four-- Something that you absolutely...DISLIKE that everyone else seems to love: Boiled eggs. I cannot stand the smell of them. Yuck!
five-- What was the last movie you watched? Ummm.... It's been a really long time since I've seen a movie. I really don't remember. I think it might have been Jurassic Park 3, but I'm not sure.
six-- Who was the last person you hugged? My momma, the day she left to take dad to the hospital (Tuesday). I know. You're thinking "it's been three days since you've hugged someone?!" but I'm not a huggy person. I like to hug my mom and that's about it. lol :D If you're reading this mom, I love you! :)
seven-- What is your favorite meal to cook? Chicken strips, mashed potatoes and gravy. Mmm, mmm!! :D I make some GOOD chicken strips, if I do say so myself. :)
eight-- What kind of sheets are on your bed right now? (texture, pattern/color, etc.) They're plain, light brown. :)

keeping my mouth shut ^_^
minding my own business (yeah, I'm really nosy)
my babysitting skills (haha:)
maybe I need to work on being a huggier person...? :):):)
my phone-talkin' skills. I'm terrible when it comes to talking on the phone. lol :D
obeying *sigh*
listen and stop talking ^_^
staying out of trouble ;)
eight-- Eight people I tag:
whoever wants to do it! Yeah Bleah, I broke the rules. :P

Tag #2:
one-- What time do you wake up each morning? Why? I got up at 8am to do the morning barn chores with Narthea.
two-- You've just woken up, and you're thirsty. You fix yourself a glass of.... orange juice or water. haha :D
three-- Where do you go to school? What do you like/dislike about it? I'm homeschooled and I love it. :) I really wouldn't have it any other way.
four-- How many siblings do you have? What are their names and ages (if you're allowed to share)? Narthea is 17, going on 18 in December. Esara is 13. Caldirwen is 11, going on 12 in December.
five-- What is your favorite game to play with your family? Farkle! Aka Game of Ten Thousand (though there is a slight difference in the scoring between the two games, but some people are like "Farkle?!" lol :) or Scrabble!
six-- What's the silliest thing you've ever done with your siblings, cousins or any other family member? Would you do it again if you could? My friends, my sisters and I make stupid videos. Either we dance really crazy, or we come up with totally randome skits. Haha. It is SO fun! :)
seven-- What's your favorite game to play with your friends? Same as Bleah, hide and seek in the dark! It's THE best game ever!! :D
eight-- If you could meet one person in the whole wide world (who's currently alive), who would it be? Why would you want to meet that person? What would you say to them? I would wanna meet my friend Bleah and I'd say, "Bleah, I love you girl!!! I cannot believe we're finally meeting!!!" Then I'd gather her up in a HUGE bear hug (even though I'm not a huggy person) and I'd never let go. haha :D Bleah and I... we're besties... twins, seperated at birth... kindred spirits... call it what you want, we're tight! :)
nine-- If you could meet one person in the whole wide world (from the past), who would it be? Why would you want to meet that person? What would you say to them? I would wanna meet Jack Lord, because I have a secret crush on him *shh*. ;) Ever seen the tv show Hawaii 5-0? Well, for a few months, I was obsessed with that show! Literally. Obsessed. I'm not sure what I would say. I might faint. lol :D
ten-- What is your favorite way to worship God? Singing, dancing, playing an instrument, praying, fasting? I love to sing for God! I love singing, and using it to worship Him, the One who gave me my talent, is just... lovely. :)
eleven-- "God cares about the little things of life." Do you agree? Can you give specific examples of ways that God has shown Himself in the little things of your life? Yeah! I completely agree! I can't pin point any examples from my life, but I've seen it in other people's lifes. Plus, you can tell by reading the Bible. In the Old Testament, with all the ceremonies and such, they were so specific, right down to the last, smallest thing.
twelve-- Is there a particular Bible verse that has stood out to you recently? Which verse and why? The same as Bleah, "Do not worry about tomorrow because tomorrow will take care of itself." Told you we were kindred spirits. ;)
thirteen-- Your parents are out for the day, leaving you home alone (with your siblings). Then, your grandmother from out of state calls and says she'll be there in fifteen minutes. (She wasn't supposed to come until tomorrow) What do you do? I greet her with open arms and a big ole' cheesy smile. :D I love my grandparents. :):):)
fourteen-- Have you ever traveled out of country? Why did you go? No, I haven't. But I will someday!! :D
fifteen-- What sport do you play and what do you enjoy about it? I don't play sports. :)
sixteen-- Do you like cats or dogs better? If neither, specify: I think I would have to say dogs. :) But I wouldn't want one in my future home, because we currently do have a house dog, and he's such a mess! It's just too much if you ask me. lol :D
seventeen-- Country or city? Country absolutely!!! :D :D :D I'm a COUNTRY girl ALL. THE. WAY!!! :D
eighteen-- Cowboy hat or prairie bonnet? I'm with Bleah (again), neither. I'd rather have a barrett or a cap. :) I love caps.
nineteen-- Flipflops or tennis shoes? Flipflops, totally! :D
twenty-- Do you like my (Bleah Briann's) blog? Well of COURSE I love her blog!! :D That's how we met, through her more-than-lovely blog! :):):)

If any of you want to do the tags listed above, you are more than welcome to do them! And click here to read the latest "quick update" on my dad, if you haven't already. :)

4 Greetings from Elven Friends


Those were a lot of tags Eldarwen! Anywho - did you hear that they are making a Pirates 4? Coming out in May 2011! My older sister is pretty excited!

Kendra said...

Whew. I'm glad you didn't tag me. I have so many tags to do...hehe

Haley said...

Wow, that's a lot of tags! :) I know, I don't talk on the phone too well, either. After a couple of minutes I can't think of anything to say. Then, when I do and try to say it the other person starts talking about something, too, so one of us has to stop, etc... I do much better face-to-face. :) Don't ask me why, out of all that, I concentrated on the phone thing! ;)

Anyway, I enjoyed the post! You always have such fun answers! :)
