gettin tagged

There's something fun about meeting people in this blog world.  Learning about different lifestyles, personalities .. relating to people that you haven't met face to face!  Recently, I got this tag from a blogger buddy of mine and got pretty excited (well, extremely excited!),  as I've never participated in one of these before!  So...here goes nothing!

Rules:
1. You must post these rules. 
2. Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post. 
5. Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her. 

À propos de moi:
1. I am a traveller ... Working for an airline "ruined" me!  Being able to just hop on a plance, whenever, to go wherever, gave me a bug to travel that I hope I will never lose.  I just wish I still had those airline benfits!
2. I love people ... If it be a stranger in a new country, or a long time soul sister, I thrive off of the stories and details that make a person who they are.
3. I love entertaining ... Hosting that is!  Having people over at my house, where I can feed them the food I made for them AND make them feel comfortable?! {sigh} the very thought warms my heart.
4. I have a passion for creation ... If you haven't already gotten that from my blurps on this blog!  Watching a soup transform with colors and tastes, making a blank canvas white-no-more, capturing the smallest details with my camera, diy projects, drafting floorplans ... I just really like to be creative.
5. I am weak when it comes to a good coffee or good cheese ...
6. ok, french pasteries too!
7. I am married ... to the most wonderful man I could dream of!  I am one lucky girl to be blessed with his love.
8. I enjoy running,m aerobics, yoga, and team sports (especially volleyball!) for exercise.
9. I am overly competitive and stubborn ... in good ways, naturally :)
10. I love music ... listening to it, singing or playing it, I find myself in a 'happy' place.
11. I have a collective ancestral background ... as are most North Americans!  From my Mom, I am 50% German; from my Dad, I am 25% Ukrainian, 12.5% French, 6.25% Irish, and 6.25% Native American.

Mes reponses ... from Calista's questions:
1. I’m giving you $20,000 to do with as you see fit. What would you do?
Put it towards buying a chunk of land closer to them Rockies...the distant window view is just not cutting it!
2. What’s your favorite book? 
The Great Divorce, by C.S. Lewis
3. Can you drive a stick shift? If so, how did you learn?  
Haha ... ask my husband!  I actually learned how to drive on a standard (until the timing belt came off while driving it!).  I attempted driving Matt's standard a few years ago, and he hasn't let me borrow it since.
4. Do you have an Instagram account? What’s your handle?  
Yes...yes, I do!  @sarahnadine7
5. What would be your dream job?  
I've got a few(!) 1. a photographer for National Geographic 2. a freelance writer/blogger 3. a retreat owner 4. professional traveller
6. What is your favorite piece of art?  
I have a picture sitting on my mantle of a horse, done impressionist style.  Never tire of looking at it.
7. What new band did you discover in 2011 that really got you dancing? Or at least toe-tapping?
Brooke Fraser isn't new, and this song isn't either ... it's just one I think I listened to over a million times in 2011!
8. What’s your favorite condiment?  
Mustard ... grainy, dijon mustard.
9. What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?  
My wedding rings.  I get to wear them all the time! 
10. What’s one thing on your “to-do” list for 2012?   
Daily find time to do something I thoroughly enjoy.
11. Do you use powder or liquid laundry detergent? Why?  
I use liquid laundry detergent.  It seems cleaner(!) ... with no powder spills to worry about.

Mes questions ... for the new 'tagees':
1. What is the greatest place you have travelled to?
2. If I were to walk into your fridge/pantry weekly, what is a staple food you "cannot" live without?
3. How do you wear your hair 75% of the time?  
4. What is your ethnic background?  Is your native tongue different than english?
5. What are the top 3 blogs you frequent?
6. If you could choose any era to live in, what would it be?
7. What is the kindest thing someone has done for you?
8. Why did you start blogging?
9. What is your best workout routine?!     
10. Do you have siblings?  If so, where do you place in your family?
