Here are my 11 random things.

4. I am losing weight so cannot have it. 🙂
5. I am almost 5’5″
6. I made up my children’s bedtime song and now sing it to my Grandbabies too.
7. I was painfully shy as a child but you would never guess that now!

My 11 Questions to Answer …

1. Which do you enjoy more cooking or baking?
   After cooking for the better part of my life … I find it “work” to cook on a daily basis. I am so incredibly fortunate to have married a man who helps share that job. I do, however, love, love, love to do the holiday cooking!!!! I would bake but since I don’t have a family at home to 
eat it, I don’t really bake. So my answer? Neither at this time in my life unless it is a special occasion. *giggle* Bet you are sorry now that you asked that question!

2. What is the project you are most proud of, give us a link we would love to see it!
     I seem to be most known for, the “Under the Stairs Playhouse”.You can see the inside {here}

3. Do you quote funny lines from movies? If yes tell us which lines you use.
     All the time! :)The two that I use the most … “Bring me something French” from Home Alone. It refers to the little neighbor boy who wants them to bring him back a souvenir. I say it to my husband when he heads off to the store 🙂 The other … “Mary mashed them … John Wayne was tall …” from While You Were Sleeping. It refers to a diner conversation, where no one was talking about the same subject as they were not listening to each other. I say it with my daughter mostly, when dinner conversations get random.

4. What is your favorite flower?

5. What is your favorite t.v. show?
     I have to rat myself out?! Ok, you asked for it …. “Once Upon a Time” Sunday nights, ABC.

(*** “Parenthood” is my all time favorite but it is on hiatus right now. This is me. Sad. 🙁 )Tuesday nights, 9 O’clock, NBC

6. If you could travel to anywhere in the world where would it be?
     New Zealand. I have only drooled over pictures. Can someone pass me a towel, please?

7.  What would you say your decorating style is?
     Comfortable. Is that a style? Stay tuned for future “Home Tour” pictures …

8. If you won the lottery would you still DIY your home improvement projects or just buy whatever you want?
    I would buy the best that money could afford and do it myself!!!! No question!

9. What do you do to relax?
     Travel with Mr. Man. We pick a direction and just drive. Weekend road trips are the best!

10. If someone was making a movie about your life which actress would you want to play you?
     Why Reese Witherspoon of course! 

11.  What is your favorite online place to shop?

    I used to be shy too and you’d never know it now…..
    I LOVE to shop on Amazon, in my jammies at 11:00 at night, and I can totally see Reese playing you.

    Thank you for tagging me!! I’m running out of bloggers to “tag”, so I’m going to answer in the comments here, haha.

    1. We have 3 pets – a dog, a cat, and a turtle.
    2. I’ve been DIYing along with my soon-to-be husband for the past year and a half ish.
    3. Ack, I’m not all that creative, to be perfectly honest!
    4. The last vacation I went on was home to British Columbia for Christmas.
    5. The most fun thing I’ve ever done was probably participating in a research field course in New Brunswick. Yes, I’m a nerd.
    6. Ack, I feel like everything I do is embarassing.
    7. My most favourite part of the day is turning off the road into my driveway, and seeing my crazy dog come barrelling at me because she’s so excited that I’m home.
    8. READ!
    9. Add an addition, which includes a bathroom, a mudroom, and a porch!
    10. It’s charm and quirkiness – it’s full of it at 113 years old.
    11. The Hunger Games!
