✔ 4. Create 11 new question for the people you ask to answer.
✔ 5. Go to their blog and tell them they have been they have been tagged.

 The Questions:
1. What is your favorite topic to discuss?
 Books. Photography. Politics. And God. :) And a lot more... cause I like to talk. :D

2. What is your favorite website?
Oh, goodness. I have to choose only one website as my favorite?  Hmmm... maybe Facebook or Blogger, cause then I can keep in touch with friends. ;)

3. What is your favorite blog(s)?

4. Do you have any food allergies?
No, thank goodness. :)

5. What are your hobbies?
Photography (kinda obvious ;D), doing art, and creating things on the computer/editing photos. I guess you could say I'm artsy. :D And listening to music.

6. Do you have any favorite songs?
Yes!! I LOVE music. Life would be extremely boring if there was no music. :D Let's see... which are my favorite... if I can choose, that is. :D

Teir Abhaile Riu (by Celtic Woman)
When the Saints Go Marching In
Danny Boy 
Orinoco Flow (by Celtic Woman)
The Call (by Regina Spektor)
Water Tower Town (by Scotty McCreery)
Bonnie Ship the Diamond (by Gaelic Storm)
May it Be (by Enya)
Concerning Hobbits (by Howard Shore)
Baby Mine (by Celtic Woman)
Down to the River to Pray by (Alison Krause)
I'll Fly Away
Amazing Grace
Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears (by Celtic Woman)
Labor of Love (from Star Trek (2009))
Kingdom Dance (from Tangled)
He's a Pirate (from Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack)

Is that a good list??!! :D :D

7. If you could meet anyone alive in the world today, who would it be (someone you've never met) and why?
Andrew Davies, the screenwriter who has wrote the scripts for several favorite movies (Little Dorrit, Pride & Prejudice, etc.). I would want to meet him to ask him to PLEASE write a screen play for the Emerald Ballad series by BJ Hoff. :D

8. If you could meet anyone that is no longer alive, who would it be and why?
This question is actually harder to answer than the one above... hmm, let me think. Stonewall Jackson. And I'm not sure why I'd want to meet him. Other than because he's cool. :) Or Queen Victoria (and Prince Albert). :D

9. Your favorite book character comes alive; who is it?
Oh dear. Hold that question for a moment while I think... Either Morgan Fitzgerald (from the Emerald Ballad) or Michael Emmanuel (from American Anthem).

10. The character in question 9 has 1 hour to spend with you. What is the first thing you ask them?
 I would ask either character to take me into their story (just so long as I could get back to reality when I was eventually done in their story).

11. What is your favorite hairstyle and why?
I don't have just one. It depends on the day, and what's going on. I like the curly bun kind of style that is worn in a lot of the Jane Austen stories.

11 Random Things About Me:

1. I do not like mustard or ketchup. 
2. I have been interested in photography from a very young age - you can see an interview that I did about it HERE, and a guest post I did about it HERE. You can also check out my photography blog, HERE.
3. I am a fan of Irish/Gaelic. 
4. I have read the whole Anne of Green Gables series all the way through probably close to 8 times.
5. I'm a chocoholic. No doubt about it. :D
6. My three favorite animals are: horses, dolphins, and cats.
7. I love looking at wedding photography, and getting inspiration and ideas for my own wedding (if I get married, hopefully).
 8. I own a guitar, but don't really know how to play it yet.
9. I am the only one out of our family (besides my maternal grandma) to be able to keep an indoor rose plant growing for more than a year.
10. I delight in squishing any creepy crawlies that dare to come in the house. :D
11. My current favorite colors are purple and turquoise.  

My Questions For You:
1. When you go on a hike/walk, do you like to a) walk, or b) ride a bike, c) ride a horse, or d) a combination (please specify)?
2. Do you like to go camping? Why or why not?
3. When traveling, would you rather stay in a hotel or stay in a motor home/trailer?  
4. Whenever you wear skirts and/or dresses, what length do you prefer? And what kind of style(s) do you like best (post picture(s) if you can)?
5. Do you mind singing in front of people, or do you just like to sing when you're by yourself?
6. Do you like to keep your food on your plate separate, or do you just like it all to blend it together?
7. What was the first kind of pet that you ever remember owning, and what was it's name?
8. What is your favorite hot drink?
9. What is one character from a movie that you wish you could play?
10. Do you have a book (or book series) you wish was turned into a movie?
11. If you said yes to question #10, then do you have a cast at least partly planned in your mind? Who? 
If you said no to question #10, then do you have a movie where you wish you could change some of the casting that you don't like?

Thank you, Stephanie!! Would it be alright for me to do this on my public blog The Endless Road? More people read that one, and more often. Thank you for the comment on my other one, I don't get a whole lot on that one. :)
Thank you again!
