Zut alors! I have missed one!

I missed a tag!  Sarah over at Squidink: The Blog of SM Robertson also tagged me for the 11 Questions Interview.  Gah!  Hope I didn't miss any others!

Here are Sarah's 11 questions... and my 11 answers.

1) What do you like to eat for breakfast?  Coffee for sure.  And the rest depends on the day and how much time I have as I'm herding the kids out the door.  Here's my favorite breakfast at the moment -- the Egg White and Turkey Bacon Daybreaker Sandwich from Caribou Coffee.

2) Shakespeare: yay or nay?  Absolutley YAY!  

3) Do you have any guilty pleasures?  Oh yes, a few too many to mention.  Mainly they reside in my pantry.

4) What is your favorite thing to write about?  Family relationships and home.

5) Choice of the century: cake or pie?  Good grief!  These questions are hard!  Cake.

6) Got any non-writing hobbies?  Does reading count? How about shopping at Target? I used to travel a lot before I had kids.  I like to walk but don't go as much as I would like.

7) If you had a theme song, what would it be?  Well, here's the first thing that popped into my mind:

We're gonna make our dreams come true!

8) What's your favorite writing snack? Coffee.

9) Do you have any pets?  Not at this time.  We lost our 16-year-old schnauzer-bichon a little more than a year ago and we're not ready for another.  I'm a cat person but my husband is allergic, so that's out. 

10) If you could live anywhere, where would it be?  I'd move back to Duluth or somewhere along the North Shore of Lake Superior.  I have a signed document from my husband agreeing to this someday.  He agreed mainly because of the beer at Fitger's Brewhouse.

11) Got any book recommendations?  I mentioned this in my previous post: THE SWEETEST THING by Christina Mandelski:

A more recent read is THE STATISTICAL PROBABILITY OF LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT by Jennifer E. Smith, which combines three of my favorite things: a contemporary love story, family drama, and London.

Last night I picked up this little gem: 

Find it at BN.com
"Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey tells the story behind Highclere Castle, the real-life inspiration and setting for Julian Fellowes’s Emmy Award-winning PBS show, and the life of one of its most famous inhabitants, Lady Almina, the 5th Countess of Carnarvon. Drawing on a rich store of materials from the archives of Highclere Castle, including diaries, letters, and photographs, the current Lady Carnarvon has written a transporting story of this fabled home on the brink of war."

Maybe as I'm cleaning my house, running to the bank and the grocery store, and helping my son with his homework today, I'll think of eleven questions to ask YOU!  In the meantime, feel free to leave your answers to the above questions below.

I'd especially like to hear your book recommendations.


  1. Oh my gosh, I love the title of your post because I loved the Little Mermaid! Reading totally counts as a non-writing hobby because I count it as that. ;)

  2. Hahaha. What great questions! I, too, am a huge fan of coffee....I guess it's a staple food item for college students :).

    Great to meet you!

  3. I loooove that reading counts as a non-writing hobby! Hi from the Campaign! *waves*

  4. Hi Sara, love your blog. it seems that you and I might share a love of England. That's cool! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  5. Hi, Sara! I love your list of recent reads. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  6. Hey girl, here from the campaign! So fun to meet you. I'm doing a bloghop at the end of march and would love it if you joined me. What do you say? I couldn't find your email address.

  7. Yay, had a great time reading your answers! :D

    Reading definitely counts as a non-writing hobby. Love the theme song too--nice and peppy! :) And, of course, thanks for the book recommendations!

  8. Hey! I'm from the campaign. It's great to meet you. I love your blog. :)

  9. Shopping at Target should count as a hobby! :D I miss that store since moving back to Europe...I´m also afraid to miss questions - I´ve been tagged a lot recently (yay for the campaign :D))

  10. Book rec: anything by Tana French! <3 <3

    I really want to read Smith's book--will have to start soon! What did you like most about it (other than your favorites)?

  11. Shopping at Target is not a hobby just like breathing isn't a hobby.

    It's going to be hot in that big silver pot...
