You're IT!

First of all - I just noticed that I am at 200 followers! WOWZA! That totally made my day! Thanks everyone! Thanks so much! I think I need to come up with a giveaway to celebrate, so stay tuned!

Also... if you haven't heard... Mark Koopmans is having a fabulously fun blog hop for St. Paddy's Day! (Yes, it's St. Paddy's (with the D's). A real Irishman uses the "D's" - Mark is keeping me up to date! The linky will open up on the 27th, but get the button on your blog and mark your calendar! Go HERE for more info on the HOP!

Now... I have officially be "tagged by A.E. Martin and Melanie Fowler with a fun tagging game that is going around the blogosphere. I'm totally stoked to participate so, here are my answers to their questions!

A.E. Martin's Questions:
1. What is your biggest fear?
Losing my kids. Yeah - I worry about the craziest crap, but if something ever happened to my kids, I don' think I could survive it.
2. What would you wish for if you had three wishes?
   1 - To live in Hawaii
   2- To be a fabulously brilliant, published author
   3 - To have a happy family
3. What's your favorite childhood novel?
I honestly loved reading the Boxcar Children books! They were awesome. I love mystery!
4. What's your earliest memory?
I remember riding my strawberry shortcake big wheel to my neighbors house. I remember their driveway, yellow brick house and side porch. I was only 2, so that's a pretty good recollection, right?
5. Would you rather be the hero or the villain of a story?
I'm all about saving the day. Count me in as a hero!
6. Vampire, Witch, Werewolf, Mermaid -- which would you be?
*twiddles thumbs, while making strange oooh-ing sound* It's a toss up between a vampire and mermaid. Although a witch would be cool too. I'm okay with not being a werewolf.
7. What's your favorite song?
So many! Right now I am on a Katy Perry kick: "The One Who Got Away." Also love Taylor Swifts, "Long Live." Those are my two current faves!
8. Would you rather go back 50 years to the past or 50 years into the future?
I ask a similar question in my interviews, and I have no idea the answer! Agh! I'm going to say future. It would be cool to check that out, as long as the world hasn't turned to hell.
9. If someone could tell you how you were going to die would you want to know? (maybe this question is too macabre lol)
I can handle "macabre." But I'm going to say "HELL NO!" Seriously, I have a serious "worry wart disease!" Yeah. I don't want to know. I try not to think about it. lol
10. Are you more spontaneous or do you like to plan ahead?
I live for spontanaity! I love it. It doesn't give me time to worry. On the down side, I do tend to get myself into trouble with it too. That's when planning ahead is a good thing. Just not easy for me.
11. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
The chicken! (Yeah, I have no idea, but I'm going with the chicken.)

Melanie Fowler's Questions:
1. What's your favorite meal?
So hard. I like to eat. Spaghetti is good. Love pot roast. Love spring rolls. AND... hamburger pie!
2. Morning person, or night owl?
Not even a toss up - NIGHT OWL! Although I am super lame now that I'm old and have kids. I used to stay up for.ev.er! Now I'm in bed early, but I still don't get up early. No way!
3. What's your favorite season?
Fall - of course! I love it! Perfect weather, perfect clothes! And pretty landscapes!
4. What is your dream vacation?
This is a toss up between Hawaii and a Caribbean Cruise. OR... I'd LOVE to spend a summer touring Europe! (Simple thing, right?)
5. What time of day do you write?
Nighttime! Once the kiddos are in bed, I can finally write!

Wasn't this fun? I loved it guys! Thanks for the tag guys! Now... IF I tag you, you need to answer the following questions:

1. What is your dream vacation?
2. Are you spontaneous or do you like to plan ahead?
3. Tell us one thing you want to do, but don't dare to do. (Unless of course, you dare to do everything!)
4. What's your biggest phobia?
5. If you were stranded on a desert island - what 3 things would you want with you? (not including laptop, or family.)
6. Name three blessings in your life.
7. What was your nickname in High School?
8. If you could meet the President of the United States, what would you say to him?
9. If you could be any literary character for a day, who would you be?
10. What is your favorite quote?
11. In the color code personality test, what color are you? (If you don't know, go HERE!)  

Okay... there are my questions. NOW... here are the people I am tagging!


Whew! That was wild and fun! Can't beat that, right? Tag games ROCK! I hope you'll join in the fun and do some tagging of your own! Now... I have serious Blue & Gold Banquet to prepare for tonight. *sigh* I'm hoping it goes well.

200? You should celebrate!

LynNerdKelley said...

Congrats on 200 followers! It's such a thrill, isn't it? And than you for including me in your tag game. I'll play, but it might take me longer than normal since we're in the middle of moving and I'm babysitting 9 hrs. a day, my grandbaby, 5 months old and hardly naps. Makes it hard to get much done. He's snoozing right now!

Alice said...

I'm a new follower. Sounds like a fun blog hop!

Emily R. King said...

Congrats on surpassing 200 followers, Leigh!
I'd totally be a mermaid. Man, I'd have one sexy fin. : )

Stacy Henrie said...

Love the questions! I'm all about spending a month touring Europe too. My hubby did something like that, with a buddy of his, before we got married. They saw a bunch of countries.

Nancy Thompson said...

Tag, huh? This is a new one for me. Okay, Since I have to do something similar for the Kreativ Award next week, I might as well roll this one in, too. Thanks for the shout out! Always appreciated. Congrats on making 200. I was there a few weeks ago myself.

Elana Johnson said...

Fun! Biggest fear: dogs. Seriously.

Also, what is hamburger pie? Because I needz me some of that. :)

Trisha said...

Ohhhh, a tag! Thank you :) I will totally answer this sometime soon!

I'm with you on the 'not planning ahead too easily' thing. I find planning things a bit too boring. hehe

Jack said...

Congrats on the big 200! Great to hear about that! And so exciting of getting to know you...at least read about you! :)

Ruth Josse said...

Leigh, you make me smile. :) Love your answers and it's great to learn more about you!

Excellent answer on the first number 1. Much agreed on that assessment.

Also, very agreed on Fall being the best season.

Susanna Leonard Hill said...

Congrats on all those followers! Awesome! :) And loved reading your answers - very fun :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hey Leigh! Congratulations on two hundred followers.
Saw your comment on Laura's site. I'm one of the A to Z co-hosts, so if there's anything I can do to help, let me know. It's an incredible event - you will meet so many awesome people!

Shallee said...

I'm a night writer too. And I have the same biggest fear as you do! I can't even think about it...

I'm sorry we didn't see each other at LTUE! I saw you at a distance, but didn't have a chance to say hi. We'll have to meet in person somewhere else. :)

Claudine G. said...

It was so fun reading your answers. :) I love Fall, too (okay, I'll have to imagine Fall because we don't really have Autumn and Winter in Singapore).


Congrats on your number of followers. 200 is awesome!

K, #1 is my biggest fear too and I'm afraid to ever say it out

We're having pot roast for dinner :)
Have a good weekend!
