My awesomely awesome new blogger-bestie, Jen and Company, tagged me for the Blacksburg Belle’s Blog Tag Experiment. I think it is so fun that we are in this virtual world able to make real live connections and friendships – and also get tagged so this weeks blog post is DONE 🙂 Thanks Jen

20 Things You Might Not Know About Me

Question 1: How all are you?

I am Anti-Tall at a whopping  5’2”. When I hug my husband I like to stand on a step otherwise I feel like a little kid. If I stand up straight I think I can hit 5’4″ with KSwiss tennies.

Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

I can play a wind instrument and was once 1st chair in band. I can also zone out almost anywhere. I can ignore my husband when he is being a jerk pretty well – that is freaking amazing.

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

I hate being redirected to my email to confirm my address. It is a necessity, but geez, “I want more” but wait, let me take you away from the site and hope you will come back.

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

Over Explaining,  Hot Hand and Inefficiency. I couldn’t pick the biggest, they are all pretty up there.

Question 5: What’s your favorite song?

Beyond the Sea when Bobby Darin does it, Kevin Spacey kinda rocks it also

Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?

For My Planner: DIY Fish – love her! I like to track my goals  and this system works very well

For my Cards and Artsy stuff: HighlandInspirations her stuff is so well made and usually free shipping!

For my cool side: ZertucheInk and because she is one of my besties whom I absolutely love and respect.

Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?

Planning, Organizing and Journalling in bright fun colors

Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?

Vanilla Ice Cream base with Kettle Brand Potato Chips Sea Salt, Smucker’s Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping, Chocolate Fudge,  Kirkland Signature Peanut Butter Pretzel, and Pistachios 

Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

Fiction: anything by Stephen KingThe Stand is one of the best

Nonfiction: Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion

Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product or tool?

I don’t wear a lot of make-up, ordered some subscription boxes to get into it a little bit. I prefer skin care lines. Arbonne is my favorite.

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

I used to be embarrassed all the time, I may need to come back to this one and update with each instance. I have done a lot of work on not being embarrassed (thanks Amy E Smith!) so this is tough for me.

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Naked 100% Juice Smoothie Green Machine  

Question 14: Favorite Movie?

Suicide Kingsanything with Chris Walken, really.

Question 15: When you were in high school, what were you? Prom Queen, Nerd, Cheerleader, band geek, loner, artist, prep?

I have no idea. I thought I was a nobody, but people I thought had no idea who I was tell me some amazing stories about what I did for them or how a memory I was involved in is a favorite of theirs. It is pretty cool.

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

On a Lavender Farm

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with?

The Joy Junkie!!

April asks that we tag 10 people who we want to get to know better, or at all. Who to tag…hmmm, I’ve got it:

1. YOU! Since you stuck around for the whole post, I think you are pretty dang cool. You’re it. Send me a copy of your post in the comments.

2. Amy Porterfield : She is so down to earth, friendly and well spoken. To top it off, her podcast is INSANELY FULL OF AMAZING CONTENT.

3. Patrick James Lynch from Believe Digi: He is my favorite Hemophilia Advocate and I love his creativity, plus he is just cool and I want to know what his favorite beauty product is.

4. Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income: Seems like the nicest guy in the world, he motivated me to start my Hemophilia Podcast, Amazon biz and is one of my best friends (who don’t know I exist) and I also have no idea what his favorite beauty product is.  I need some ideas for the hubs upcoming birthday.

 5. Lisa Currie of The Scribble Project: A cool artist who started a great scribble movement. She has two books out. I am working my way through my first Scribble Diary and and getting Me, You, Us as gifts for some cool couples I know.

6/7. Nataly Dawn and Jack Conte of Pomplamoose Music: If you haven’t seen them, you must. Creative, talented, funny and adorable. My favorite videos are September and Single Ladies, check ’em out.

9. Scary Mommy because she is freaking funny!

10. Jessica Northey from CMChat one of the most down to earth, goofy and loving gals of the Net. She will always be my silly college bestie to me, but I know she likes to have fun and support her peeps, so Tag Jess!

Here’s how you play (copied from April’s blog):

1. Copy and paste the questions below and then answer and turn them into a blog post. Or, record a video answering these questions and upload it to your blog post.

2. At the bottom of your post, tag anywhere from 2-10 bloggers you want to see answer these questions. (I also suggest hitting up your tagged people via social media just to let them know you tagged them to do this tag challenge.)

3. Use the title: 20 Things You Might Not Know About Me Blog Tag. Once you’ve hit publish, leave a comment below with the link to your post.

4. Use the hashtag #20ThingsBlogTag when sharing on social media so we can all find your awesome posts!

As you can see from my answers, your answers can be super short.

If you want an intro to include at the beginning or end of your post, here’s one:
