My 11 Facts
1. I used to never like cheese (except provolone in some situations). In fact, it made me nauseous. Now I can stomach it sometimes, in sandwiches or in casseroles.
2. I still listen to Adventures in Odyssey sometimes.
3. If I had tons of money, I would go to Hobby Lobby and Kirkland’s and decorate my house most awesomely!
4. I own over 300 books.
5. Rome, Israel, and Colombia are at the top of my list of places to visit.

My answers to The Crum’s questions:
1. Where is your happy place?
Ideally, a nice quiet spot outdoors with a cup of coffee, my Bible, a notebook, and a couple other good books to read.
2. What is the craziest thing that has ever happened to you?
Hmm. There was the time (way before I was pregnant) where my credit card was stolen and used to hire a babysitter. Or the time that a little girl in the Costco bathroom asked me if I was the girl who played Hermione. But neither of those are too crazy. 😉
3. What is your favorite memory?
I have so many wonderful memories, I don’t know how to pick just one. Highlights include…saying “I do” and the moment our son was born.
4. What is your favorite hobby?
I enjoy hiking and writing. 🙂
5. What do you want people to remember you for?
For always being an encouragement and pointing people to Him. I know I need to work on those things!
6. What era do you wish you lived in?
Hmm. There are pros and cons to every era. 😉 If I had to pick, I would say either Bible times or the 1800s. But I love this era, too. 🙂
7. What advice would you give your 16 year old self?
Stop being so melodramatic!
8. What is your favorite holiday?
9. What would you do if you won the lottery?
Give it away. Help get clean water to people around the world. Help feed the poor. Sponsor more children from Compassion. And, I’ll be honest, I would probably use some money to buy new clothes. 😉
10. What is your biggest fear?
That I will fail my son. In honesty, I know that I will. But I also know that God will never fail him.
11. Do you hang your toilet paper over or under??
