Tag, You're It!

Actually, I'm it... for now.  But you're it next!

Callie from Through Clouded Glass tagged me in a blog link-up game thingy.  Fun!
The rules are:
1.  Tell 11 random facts about me
2.  Answer the 11 questions provided by tagger.
3.  Tag new people with 11 new questions.

I was recently passed a different blog tag award and you can read my random facts HERE.  I honestly am not interesting enough to come up with 11 new random facts about myself.
But I will answer the questions that Callie asked, so here we go:

1.  If you could listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Definitely Jason Mraz at Java Joes... it's his acoustic album from before he blew up.  I love this album for several reasons... first, it's acoustic.  Second, he improvises and scats throughout... hot.  And last, I used to listen to this cd religiously when Mau and I first started dating, so every song reminds me of our blossoming love... double hot. 

2.  If you were a teacher, what subject would you teach?
I was a teacher.  I used to teach middle school Chorus and I loved it.  The only subject I'd ever want to teach is Chorus.  The only reason I can handle the job is because it's music.  I love music, not teaching and not children.  haha.

3.  What is your favorite verse/quote?
"I can do ALL things through Him who strengthens me" Philippians 4:13

4.  Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I was too lazy to put together a scrap book of Marco's first year, and then felt incredibly guilty.  So I decided that keeping a journal/blog/log/record of his life with stories, pictures and lessons would be way more valuable than a baby book.  But then I realized that by doing this, I was learning a lot about myself too.  And I got hooked. 

5.  What is one book you think everyone should read (besides the Bible)?
1984.  But you have to read it as an adult and not as a school assignment.  If you read it in high school, you must read it again. It's genius.  And terrifying. 

6.  Favorite drink to get at Starbucks?
Depending on if I'm thirsty or not.  If I'm thirsty, then it's a Caramel Frap.  If I'm not thirsty, then a Caramel Machiatto

7.  Would you rather it snow or rain?
Rain.  I abhor the snow.  Snow is fun... for about 2 minutes.  That's all.

8.  Advice that your mom gave you that you never forgot?
Always wear a bra.

9.  Most read website or blog?
Facebook junky and now I'm becoming addicted to Twitter too... 

10.  One thing you'd tell your 13 year old self?
"In one year, you'll meet your husband... and he'll be young and immature... but wait for him anyway, and don't do anything stupid". 

11.  What do you hope people will say about you after you die?
She loved Jesus and is now living with Him.
