Hello My Dears,

Thank you all so very much for the birthday wishes! It meant so much to me! And thank you, gi gi, for the absolutely wonderful birthday post! It was amazing!

It has been such a busy week, so I will be catching up with you all soon! I am sorry I have been so absent. It doesn't seem to be letting up either.

Recently, D. Marie of The World Around Her tagged me in a Q&A and I am finally getting around to it! So here we go...

1. When did you know your love was "The One"? If you're not married, do you think you will know when they are "The One"? 
 When we met!

2. When you were younger did you have a set age you wanted to be married by?
 I always wanted to be married by 22.

3. Do you like the same sports team as your love, if not do you fight about whose team is better?
 Yes, thank goodness!

4. What is something weird about you that you don't share with many people? 
I honestly cannot think of an answer to this right now! I can't think of something weird that I wouldn't share with someone. Is that a good thing? haha

5. What is one thing in your life that you wish you could do over?
 If I could go back and have a do over on one thing, I know exactly what that would be, but I am afraid I can't share it!

6. Who is your favorite actor and the best movie they were in? 
 If you have been following me for a while, you probably already know the answer to this, and for that I am sorry for sounding like a broken record!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Best movie: 500 Days of Summer :)

7. Do you get along with all of your family members?
Yes, I do. I have a very good family.

8. What was your favorite cartoon when you were younger, do you have a favorite cartoon now?   
 I loved watching The Little Mermaid animated series. Today the closest things to cartoons I watch are movies, such as Pixar movies!

9. Do you watch anything on the Disney Channel but don't tell anyone?!   
Well, the people closest to me know this, but now I guess everyone does! I love Jonas L.A.

10. OK last question is something my English teacher did in class: I'll give you a word and you have to write a poem from it: "Marriage"
I did not write my own because I read a poem that is too cute, so I had to share it:

The Colour of My Love

I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
Knowing that we'll never part.
I'll draw the years all passing by
So much to learn, so much to try.

I'll paint my mood in a shadow blue,
Paint my soul to be with you.
I'll sketch your lips in shaded tones,
Draw your mouth to my own.

I'll trace a hand to wipe your tears
And trace a look to calm your fears.
A silhouette of dark and light
To hold each other oh so tight.

I'll paint the stars in the evening sky,
Draw the light into your eyes,
A touch of love, a touch of grace,
To softly fall on your moonlit face.

And with this ring our lives will start,
Let nothing keep our love apart.
I'll take your hand to hold in mine,
And be together through all time.

-David Foster and Arthur Janov
And now I pass on this tag to (if you would like to that is!):

Tywo of The Purple Fairy
Carrie of This Free Bird

And the questions:

1. What is your favorite thing about fall?
2.Celebrity you think you look most like?
3. Favorite holiday tradition?
4. What's one item of makeup that you can't live without?
5. If you could choose one store to shop at for the rest of your life, where would it be?
6. What is one thing that you definitely want to do before you die?
7. What is your favorite website to browse?
8. What is your favorite kind of dessert?
9. Best vacation spot?

Aww!! I love your answers....and what a sweet poem! If I heard that before our wedding I may have used it! ♥ I haven't seen 500 days of Summer but it looks really good. So sad that his brother in real life died. Love your questions too...esp the one about the one store to pick to shop at! I guess I would have to say Target...because they have everything! LOL! I know its nothing high end...but it works! Happy Halloween! Glad you had a wonderful birthday!
