Rachel over at Rachel and John tagged me in this fun questionnaire, and, since I am off enjoying myself in a certain "Paris of the Middle East," for the weekend, I thought this might be a good time to finally respond!

1) What is your favorite part of your day?

In the evening, when I know all of my responsibilities are done, and I finally get to relax and do as I please, that is my favorite time! I can do house chores at my leisure, read, watch tv, or be on the internet without feeling rushed or under a time table. Then, eventually, I settle into bed to do my quiet time and read before feeling drowsy enough to sleep.

2) What is your favorite meal?

Good question. I love me some Breakfast for Dinner and especially miss my dad's pancakes and bacon (the real kind, not that turkey bacon junk.) And Sonny's Pulled Pork Barbecue is a little taste of heaven. Probably any pork product, ha! They say absence makes the heart grow fonder....

(and, in this case, makes your heart grow healthier!)

3) What is your morning routine?

I almost always get up before Ian does. I think that's because we go to class together and I just take longer to get ready, ha! The alarm goes off, and I kind of spring out of bed. Right away. I'm weird like that. Despite the bed springing, I groggily stumble into the bathroom where I turn on the water and stand stock still, without actually getting into the shower for 1o minutes. 10 wasted minutes. Then I shower for about 20 minutes, come out and sit in front of my computer for 10-20 minutes, trying to cool off and let my hair air dry for a little before getting dressed, putting my hair up in a bun for school, and figuring out what sounds appealing for breakfast.

4) If you could go anywhere on a vacation, where would you go?

Oooh So exciting. I would go to Hawk's Cay Resort in the Florida Keys. It's my little piece of paradise. We honeymooned there and I envision taking family vacations there as our family grows and when we are back stateside every couple of years. The resort is glamorous but family friendly, the food is great, the pools are beautiful, and you can do just about any water activity you can think of! We didn't even explore alot of the resort, but I know they have tons of other things to do there!

5) If you could do any home improvement to your house without money being a problem, what would you do?

Well, our apartment is rented, but I guess I will count this as our "house." I'd probably put in central AC. It would free up the wall space each window/wall unit takes in each room and would make things look so much more uniform. Not to mention the fact that the house would be more evenly cooled.

6) Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I have no clue. I've learned a few hard lessons in the last couple of years, and most of them revolve around my desire to plan out my life. We could still be overseas doing what we are doing, or we could be back stateside doing something else. I won't pretend to know what God has in store for us, but I rest in His peace that His plans are better than my own.

And I'm still holding out hope that His plan includes several more children for us!

7) Do you have a hobby?

Oh yes. I'm a woman of various interests. I read (duh.) Blog (double duh.) Crochet, am into photography, would love to write children's books, and love all things pertaining to education. Oh yes, and that crazy little thing called travel.

8) Why did you start blogging?

I was about 2 weeks away from getting married and moving out of my hometown and my parents house for the first time in my life. I knew that I wanted to stay in contact with people and figured my momma would enjoy reading some of my adventures. That's really it! Blogging has become this beautifully awesome thing that has taken on a life of its own!

I'm supposed to tag other people, but let's face it. I've got a rooftop pool and a Johnny Rocket's calling my name. That, paired with the fact that I can wear my hair down and wear short sleeves for the first time in almost two months means that I am not going to take that much time to find all of you dear blogging buddies that haven't been tagged yet and tag you.

That being said, I love Rachel's questions and would LOVE to read your answers! So, *Tag!* You're it!
