FYI: Posts will be sparse around here until I replace my laptop.... Coming back to work after Christmas break apparently was too hard and it quit on me!

Blog Party

1. If you had to choose between living on a desert island or tropical rainforest for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
Tropical rainforest, because unless I had a never ending supply of sunscreen and water I would literally be burnt to a crisp on a desert island! Could I request a tropical rainforest on an island? =)

2. What is your favorite music CD right now?
Mannheim Steamroller Christmas music--any of their CD's--although Christmas Extaordinaire and Fresh Air Christmas would have to be at the top

3. If you were given the choice between wildflowers or roses - which would you pick?
Depends...I like wildflowers for their variety in color and types, but roses smell the best

4. How much do you like notebooks? Is it mild, or are you absolutely obsessed with them?
More on the obsession side--I love new, clean notebooks but seldom know what to fill them with

5. What is your biggest goal this winter? I'm more of a detailistic person so I don't usually have 'large goals'....ummm....oh, I get my driving permit in two weeks so to become a safe and confident driver. =P haha! like that will happen over the winter...ah, well, that is the best I can think of right now other than becoming better at whatever I do...

6. If you could change your hair however you wanted, what would you do?
Curl it. =) Loose ringlets/waves would be the best but I'll settle with just the ends curling nicely.

7. Do you think Harry Potter is bad?
As I've never read the books or seen the movies I really don't have anything to stand on other than what I've heard(and I've heard both sides).  I'd have to conclude that obsession with it is bad, but reading it for just a good read and not believing in it or becoming obsessed with it is okay.

8. Why do you think pink is a girls' color?
I honestly have no idea...

9. Would you be up to singing a solo in front of a thousand people?
Um NOOO---have you heard me sing?!

10. What colors look best on you?
Honestly, I don't really know, but I do like wearing green, blue, purple, etc

11. If you had a different name, what would it be?
I've always loved the name Elsie =) or Hazel
On the topic of names, why do nicknames almost always come from the first sound(s) of the name instead of the last?

12. Do you like...
boots or sneakers? if they are comfortable and when I need warm shoes, sneakers for sports (comfortable is the way I go--if you couldn't tell already!)

flats or heels?
I can't stand really high heels nor flats with no arch/support so I can't say one or the other because it depends on the shoe

books or movies?
Books all the way!!!

purple or pink?
um, I'd have to say purple, but it would have to be a deep grape purple

long hair or short hair?
long =)

a best friend or a group of friends?

ice cream or cake?
Again, it depends. Usually I prefer ice cream in the summer and cake in the winter.  Although, homemade ice cream goes at all times and so do certain kinds of cake such as German sweet chocolate, coca-cola cake, my birthday cake(chocolate cake with pecans, caramel, whipped cream, and chocolate curls!), chocolate cherry cake, etc

plaid or polka dots?
Polka dots! (only I have to be careful around my dad--and now brothers because he got the idea into their head--because he calls them poke-a-dots and proceeds to poke them)

Head on over to Amanda's blog, Lizzy's blog, or Stella's blog to join in the fun! (there are a bunch of prizes too!)

Love in Christ,

P.S. Just as a heads up, I'm not sure if I'll have time to finish up this week's Tuesday's Tip, so I might just have to skip this week. 



wow I love your blog!

May Amelia

How fun! Yes, just so you know, you made me stay up WAY too late since I had to enter the blog party too. *wink*


I enjoyed reading your answers! I would change my hair by curling it also, but it is so short right now it would probably end up looking like Shirley Temple. :D :D

Emily Grace

Thanks, Lauren. =)

May--You have until December 18th, you didn't have to do it last night...hehe! But I do have to add that I enjoyed reading your answers =D

Shaynie--Thanks! That is really funny! When I was little my mom would put it in foam rollers overnight and my hair really would look like Shirley Temple! That was known as my 'Shirley Temple' hairstyle. =P My younger sisters can still pull that look off--but my hair is to long and dark to look like hers.


Your answers were very fun, Emily! I enjoyed them. :) I may hop on over and participate myself...
I don't think I've commented before...I'm sorry, I don't know why not, but let me assure you I read every one of your posts! :)
You probably highly dislike advertising for one's own blog, but...since my posting has slowed down, not many followers are reading my blog. And I'm hosting a photography contest with the theme of food or cooking. Just wanted to let you know; no pressure!

Emily Grace

Thanks Guinevere! =)
and I completely understand(I can't count how many great posts I've read and didn't take the time to comment...)
I do actually dislike it when people are always saying 'go check out my blog, go check out my blog!' but thank you for the heads up! I do follow your blog but for some reason your posts haven't been showing up on my thank you very much! I'm planning on joining in once I go take a photo of the 5 batches of sugar cookies I made last night! =D
