Ready for some Blog Party Fun--I'm joining up!

Joining Ab's Blog Party--head over to link up, too! :)

1. What's your favorite time of the day, and why?

I LOVE the early morning--when I still have the whole day ahead of me and I'm just enjoying the brisk chill that comes from the dawn. If I'm the only one up, it's quiet, and sooo peaceful.

2. If health wasn't an issue, what food could you live off of?

Lindt truffles. They are one of the best chocolates ever--the blue and black are the best. Literally, they melt in your I'm craving them.

3. If you could have one wish granted (besides wishing for more wishes), what would it be?

One wish--that would be to have a canon rebel xti. I'm longing for a camera--I love my digital, but nothing beats the real thing. ;)

4. What's one thing that you get teased about a lot?

My ability and unrelenting dedication (actually, just my continuation of the so called ability) to call out and name fonts. As well as critiquing them and critiquing the use. I've had many conversations with people telling me to please be quiet, and that they don't care about the font. I'll still hold firm that that was an illegal usage of Rockwell--you NEVER use italics with a font that bold. ^_^

5. If you could choose one movie, book, or TV show to spend your life in, which would you pick? What type of character would you be?

I was originally gonna say Lord of the Rings (HELLO, beautiful!) but then it hit me what that entailed. The elves are all gone, basically. The land is ravaged from Sauron's reign, there might be a few stray's too risky. So then, I think I'll go for Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen. Okay, let me clarify, I am NOT a big Jane Austen fan, but I LOVE that era, and the movies are good. Hee hee...;)

6. If you could have one talent that you don't already have, what would it be? talent...oh, I'd love to be able to be a ballerina (have you ever noticed how that name sounds SO girly?). I know. I dance ballet. But it's not my natural talent--to be able to dance beautifully...ah...that would be amazing. (btw...what you're seeing above is INCREDIBLY difficult--the left I can't even do, and the right is insanely hard. Doesn't look that way, huh? Pointe kills my toes. 'Nuff said.)

7.If money were no object, where would you go on vacation?

Italy. My mom and dad both learned Italian in college and both want to go there. That longing to be there was passed down to me...*sighs* I'll make it someday--that's right. When I'm famous because of something or other, I'll go there. And then I'll blog about it. ^_^

8. If you were an awesome singer, which genre would you sing?

Oh, Big Band all the way, baby! I LOVE Big Band--some of the best music ever. If I could sing it, I would, believe me. (THAT'S what I'll be famous of--then I'll go to Italy and sing Big Band in Italian! ^_^)

9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, what would it be?

Best Buy. Laptops, Cameras, Tablets (I'm thinking...?), COMPUTER STUFF GALORE. kind of store.

10. If you could live in any point in time, when would it be?

Any time before now would be without electricity. Can't you just hear that echoing ominously. Noooo....Electriciiiiiiiiiiiiiiity.....Nooooooooooo.....Electriciiiiiiiiiiiiiiity.......
But if I had to get past that, then I'd be in the Pride & Prejudice time. The late 1700s. SUCH a romantic period...providing you were rich.....and I don't think that Big Band would be acceptable there...

11. If every outfit in your wardrobe had to be one color, what would it be?

BLUE. Think jeans. And Cute shirts. I love blue.

12. If you were one of the seven dwarves, which one would you be?
(Doc, Grumpy, Sneezy, Sleepy, Bashful, Happy, or Dopey)

I'm gonna have to say a cross between eccentric Doc and Grumpy. Yes, Grumpy. =P

13. What's the last album you listened to?

Switchfoot's "Hello Hurricane". AH! I LOVE Switchfoot. Your Love is a Song is one of the BEST songs EVER.

14. What's something we'd be surprised to know about you?

Welll....considering I've told you all a lot....I'll throw out a few random things. In case you don't know, I have six younger siblings, I sometimes write poetry, I am a John Howe art lover, I LOVE music, and I am double-jointed in my right toes. Hm? Yes. I know. Call me odd. I had a doctor call me "a classic".

I guess I'm a classic. ;)

That was fun! Head over and link up! :)


  1. Love reading these, and I love the way you write!


  2. lol This was a fun and interesting write so well! :)

  3. I would love to learn ballet, too! It's so graceful and beautiful. And Italy is definitely on my list of places to visit also.

    I LOVE Switchfoot too! So much so that Brian and I had our string quartet learn "Dare you to Move" for our wedding. It was the song they played once we kissed. Just as we kissed they began at the chorus part - it was awesome. It sounded like this>

  4. This was so fun - it was great "meeting" you!!! :)

  5. I am the same way with the fonts!!! I'll look at a word and say exactly what font it is!!! Scary... :)

  6. I love your wish for a camera like that. I'd love one too only I'd need a class to learn how to use it! I would have no idea!

  7. Lovely, Hannah!

    We have many things in common including that I think I should have put a computer store as where I would spend my money... Oh, well.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading your answers.

    Love in Christ,
    Your friend,

  8. You are such an interesting person and I love your answers. You make your answers so characterized and real, not generic at all.

  9. Loved all your answers and it was fun getting to know you a little bit!

    P.S. You have to get the xTI or xSI.. you will lOVE it!

  10. Oh my gosh! I LOVE Lindt truffles too! I like the red ones best. I always say "just ONE more" and it ends up being like twelve!

    Peace Forever,

  11. I really enjoyed reading your answers. And I too, LOVE LOVE LOVE Lindt truffles. They are the best and I am now craving them too. Grumpy? But you look too cute to be Grumpy! :)

  12. Enjoyed your post and your blog too.

  13. I really want to go to Italy too! Lindt Truffles are SOOOOO good! I rarely ever have them though.
    Hehe. "I'm a classic" XD
    Fun post Hannah! =)

    love ya!

  14. Looking forward to your Italian Big Band album! : ) Oh, and those truffles rock... they just DO.

  15. Lindt Truffles are the BEST! My orchestra teacher used to bring those back in the day when there where only like 9 people in the orchestra. Now she brings small candies for the elementary kids and every once in awhile she brings us nice chocolate for the High School group. (We got a huge bar of Symphony Hershey chocolate one time... yum!)

    I love Switchfoot too! They are absolutely AMAZING!!

  16. Hi Hannah, I'm a new follower and it was so much fun to read this and to get to know you! I found your blog via Thrifty Decor Chick. I was leaving a comment and read yours and had to visit your blog. Just something that you said. I loved your profile, it was beautiful, so I kept reading. I'm so impressed with your love for our Lord. And your love for the beauty that he gives to us. I'm going to mention you on my blog!


  17. Those photos you used are sooo beautiful! especially the ones of the ballerina and lindt chocolate balls =) Speaking of which, I prefer white and milk balls :P

    I was wondering.... if you ever have time.... would you like to make me a blog button?? I know usually you would offer if you thought I'd like one, or it would be relevant some other way, but you make them so beautifully so I thought I'd try it by asking you. I'll ask Eldarwen if you are unable =)
    Anyway, hope this is of no bother!
    Rach xo

  18. Wow! Belive it or not we have a lot in common. :D I use to take ballet. Trust me I am NOT a natural.BestBuy rocks! I love that store. :)

  19. I love your answers. Esp. #11.
    I also like blue.

    Haha I love blue too! And I would so go to Italy too!!

  23. Lindt Truffles should have their own food group! They are Heaven! What a cool post!

    xoxo -- Hilary

  24. oh boy those truffles sure do look good!:)

  25. Hi Hannah,
    I'm stopping by through the blog party. I'm participating too, and we have some pretty similar answers! I would also love to own a Canon Rebel (and know how to use all the settings! :D), and I would also like to sing Big Band music. Oh, and I chose the Regency era too. :) Anyway, just thought I'd say "hi." ;)

    ~ Love,

  26. Man! After seeing everybody's answers to the $10,000 shopping spree question, I wish I would have said Best Buy. thought was that you can get everything on Amazon that you could get at Best Buy, but it's not really true. Amazon doesn't sell Macs. Isn't that stupid? is.

    Anyway...Jared just confirmed that I have the same habit that you do. We'll be driving down the street, and I'll just start shouting out font names of shop logos and stuff. Oh, and I HATE it when people use a font the wrong way. My biggest pet peeve is when they squash it...either to make it wider or skinnier. AHHH!!!! That drives me CRAZY! Anyway, I'm so with you there.

    Love your answers, love you!

  27. Yep, you're a classic. CLASSIC.


  28. Blue is really a versitile color isnt it ?
    Feel Free to Visit me any time

    Meet me Under The Gypsy Tree

  29. Fonts? Really? Wow, I have no idea about fonts.

    I want to be a ballerina too...

  30. Dear Hannah, I'm back!!! :) I'm so excited! I had two questions though, 1) what font did you use for Bekah's post/sidebar/and header? 2) how did you get the kevinamanda font deal to work with a post icon? I'm very curious! you can email me your answer if ya like! :)

    Love, hugs, & blessings,
