Answers

 Solveig Werner Questions:

1. As a child what did you want to become? (princess is an acceptable answer) I wanted to become a teacher. 

2. What piece of your own writing are you most proud of? I’m still working on my writing but two that I’m very proud of is a poem I wrote about grandparents for the A to Z Challenge and a short story for the 5 Photos & 5 Stories Challenge, Mary’s Roses.

3. If you were an animal what would you be, and why? I would be a bird because they get to see new places everywhere they fly to. It must be nice to be away for awhile and enjoy the view from above. 

4. If you were stranded on a lonely island (there will be food and drink there) what/who would you take with you (3 things at the most)? I would take my family: my 2 daughters and my husband. 

5. Is there some advice that you would like to share? Almost every piece of advice you’re given will make sense along the way.

Izzy-Grabs-Life Questions:

1. Can you describe the four seasons in sounds? Good! Now, please, show us what you came up with. ^_^ Spring: Birds chirping, Summer: Waves crashing, Fall: Wind, Winter: Rain (Good question!)

2. Who is your favorite fictional protagonist? Antagonist? Why? Honestly, I haven’t read a book in years so I have no answer for this question 😦

3. What do you feel most proud of this week (so far)? I’ve done a lot of volunteer work at my daughter’s school this week and the teacher gave me a small pin to show her appreciation for my hard work.

4. What did you want to be when you were little? A teacher 🙂

5. How do you spend your free time (even if it’s a few minutes)? I sit on the sofa and watch a bit of tv.

Creative Blogger’s Award

creativebloggersaward1

I have been nominated for the Creative Blogger’s Award by the lovely Janice from the blog, The Simple Beginner. Thank you so much Janice for nominating me! I’m very happy you find my blog creative and you made me realize that even though I didn’t have a goal set in mind when I started this blog, it seems that I am heading in the right direction. Thank you!

The Rules
• Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify all nominees via their social media/blogs
• Thank and post the link of the blog that nominated you (very important)
• Share 5 facts about yourself to your readers
• Pass these rules on to them

Five Facts About Me:
1. I can’t believe time flew by so fast that this year will be my 10th year high school reunion. I’m still not sure if my husband and I will be attending since he finds it to be a waste of time, but we’ll see what happens until then.

2. I almost moved to Iowa about 4 years ago, my husband’s family moved over there, but at the end we decided to stay. I’m glad we did because I couldn’t imagine living outside of the city and surviving winter time 🙂

3. When we got married we had a very small ceremony, it was just our family, and we never had a honeymoon. Our goal is to actually have a real honeymoon one day and be able to spend it in Hawaii or just anywhere lol

4. I am a fan of d.i.y projects since I find it cheaper and very creative. I recently found a website that shows how to transfer photos into a canvas which I think is a very cool idea! I love displaying photos of my family so I think I’ll be giving that tutorial a try 😀

5. I was never a sports fan until I met my husband. I am now a football fan so I always look forward to football season to cheer for Green Bay! 🙂
