Tag, I'm it.

Here's the deal.  My blogging friend, Lindsay, over at A Small Town Kind of Life, has tagged me to answer a few questions on my blog.  She also happens to be Canadian, and my cousin's good friend and neighbor. So Lindsay, this blog's for you.

1. If you were stuck on a desert island, what 4 items would you bring with you?
Alright, I'm assuming that my family or my favorite dog won't qualify as "items", so I'd have to pick my Bible, a picture of my family, my mascara, and a lifetime supply of gum.

2. What is your favorite thing to do when you have nothing to do?

My absolute favorite thing to do is to read really good books in my rocking chair next to the wood stove.  My second favorite thing would be to do something crafty at my kitchen table.

3. What is your best asset?
My best asset is my whole heartedness.  When I choose to get involved in something, I dive in all the way.  It's also one of my worst attributes because I get really disappointed and frustrated when other people do things half- hearted.  I feel like if I'm putting in the effort, then everyone else should be too.

4. What is your favorite restaurant and why?
My favorite restaurant is anything Mexican that sells my beloved pinto beans.  If you haven't read about my love affair with the lowly frijole, then you really need to.

5. What do you prefer, fancy night out on the town or movie/chips at home?
I'm definitely neither of these.  We've never had a fancy night out, and I'm not a huge movie watcher.

My favorite dates are spent hiking, going for a drive, playing a round of golf together (which rarely happens) or working side by side.

6. If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?

Hmmmm.  I've always wanted to make my way through Glacier National Park, up through western Canada, and on to Alaska.  I'd love to stay in a big old lodge with plush bedding, a fireplace in the room, and lots of places to explore around the area.

7. What is the number 1 thing on your Christmas list this year?

I'd love to have a new lens for my Nikon. Pretty please.

8. What is your favorite holiday (which holiday and why) activity?

My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving.  I love everything about it.  I love counting my blessings.  I love getting up very early with my mom to start the turkey and rolls, and watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade while we prepare the big feast in the kitchen.  I love that everyone congregates there. I love the hard-core competitions my family has in the backyard, and the oodles and oodles of dessert choices.  I also love scouring the newspaper ads and deciding which amazing deals I'm going to wake up early to shop for the next morning on Black Friday.  Then I love eating leftover pumpkin pie for breakfast at 5am, followed by a turkey sandwich for lunch after a full morning of hardcore shopping. Oh, yes....I can imagine it right now.  I can't wait!

I do believe that this concludes my question and answer session.  Thanks for the tag!


  1. Great Answers! I especially like your desserted island pics, mascara? ha ha! I sure hope it's waterproof incase you want to swim off that island! xo

  2. I know you said we probably couldn't be good friends because of my lack of huge amounts of salt usage in my cooking.....but from reading your blog posts, I think we have more in common than you might think!

  3. But remember Krystle...I took it back after I tasted the dumplings at Mama Bears. YUCK! Salt overload! I'm certain we can be good friends because of our shared love for pumpkin pie blizzards!
