I've been tagged twice! Last week, Michelle, at A Life Better Than I Deserve, tagged me with a list of questions, some of which remind me that I should start thinking about holiday shopping.Then, today Christine at Our Homeschool Reviews tagged me another 8 questions. I'm supposed to answer the questions posed to me, then in turn tag 8 people with my own questions, in an effort to get to know some bloggy friends a bit better. I'm going to combine my answers into one post.
Michelle asked me:
What type of gifts do you prefer to give? Do you prefer home-made, gift certificates, store-bought, etc?
I usually go with store-bought gifts, simply because my talents for home-made gifts are limited. I do try to put a lot of thought into my store-brought gifts though!
What type of gifts do you prefer to receive?
I tend to be a bit practical and appreciate gift cards the best, through I have received home-made and store-brought gifts that I've really liked.
Do you stock a gift closet, or box, and purchase gifts throughout the year?
I used to do this quite a bit, especially for the kids. I don't do it some much anymore. If I see an item that I *know* will be appreciated by a certain person, I definitely pick it up for future gift-giving.
What is your favorite type of music? Do you have one?
I don't really have a favorite; it depends on my mood of the day!
Do you like chick-flicks, or not?
They are ok, but probably not my favorite.
Do you have a hobby? Do you make time for it regularly?
I don't have much time for hobbies. I'm still trying to learn how to knit, but there is such a time gap between when I work on projects, I have to relearn it each time!
What is your favorite thing about where you live?Every place has its pros and cons.What are the “pros” about where you live?
Our town has a small-town feel, but is really in a suburban area with everything accessible.
What is your favorite kids cartoon movie?
Hmmm - The Incredibles is the first that popped into my mind.
Now, for Chirstine's questions:
Where were you born and do you live there now?
I was born in Ohio, but didn't live there very long!
What is the best vacation that you have ever taken?
Cancun, Mexico. I loved visiting the Mayan ruins and wish we could afford to go back there with the kids.
What is your favorite season or time of year?
Definitely the fall!
What is your favorite holiday?
Christmas - but only when my shopping is done!
Do you have a favorite place you like to visit with your family?
As long as we are together and having fun, it is my favorite place. :)
Do you have a room set aside for homeschooling?
Yes, we have a school room in a bonus room above the garage.
How many children do you have compared to how many you thought you would have?
I thought I would have two, because that is the number my husband and I agreed upon before we even got married. I would have liked to have more though!
What is your favorite room in your house?
Whichever room is the cleanest and most peaceful at the time!
