3. Create 11 questions for the people you nominate.

10. I believe chivalry is NOT dead.
11. I might not seem like it on the exterior, but boy am I old-fashioned - and proud of it.

My Answers:
1. What is your dream home? Wrap around porch, fence (not too tall) around home, big backyard, master bedroom w/ master bathroom, office, playroom, basement if possible ... I dream big, obviously.
2. What is your favorite song and why? Hmm it's been "I Will Always Love You" for as long as I can remember because I just love Whitney Houston's voice in the song.
3. Who is your celebrity design alter ego? HGTV's Property Brothers ... I would love to be to find a fixer upper and make it my dream home!
4. What is your favorite blog post you have ever done and why? The significance of my blog name because it says a lot about me. You can read the post here.
5. What are 3 of your favorite blogs and why do you love them? I discussed this earlier this week but they are: Becoming a Navy Wife, The Adventures of Our Army Life & Lounging with Lindsey because they are all so sweet and have made my (quite new) blogging experience so great.
6. How long have you been blogging and why did you start? I started blogging last July but from then until Dec 2012, I only blogged 4x and then started up again this year. I started when Timmy was deployed and I decided to actually blog for real this year because I wanted to write and express myself more while connecting with ladies in my age group (I find it harder to find that on tumblr) who can relate to me. :)
7. "I'll ----------- if it's the last thing I do".  Go on adventure with the ones I love.
8. Best vintage or decor find of all time? Decor find: personalize-able photo coasters for Timmy's apartment to put photos of us in. You can see them here.
9. What is a home trend that you have tried/followed that you've regretted? I can't think of anything ... perhaps leaving old flowers to hang and they stunk up my room.
