It’s here!  The answers to all of the questions you wonderful people sent me.  You were kind enough to provide me with 45 questions, which is a fabulous amount.  I think I would have fainted if I had to answer many more.  Since it is so many I’ll be splitting it into two groups.  Today I’ll be posting all of the personal questions.  And next Wednesday I’ll post my answers to your blogging related questions.  I did eliminate a few questions because there were a few duplicates.  

Let’s dive in!    

Do you like pizza?
Obviously.  Who doesn’t like pizza?  My favorite is with olives and bell peppers.

Are you an actual fairy? Because you are just as magical as one. ;)
Oh my gosh, this one made me smile so much.  I’ve really been thinking about answering this without revealing my secret identity, but I think it’s safe to say I am a fairy.

Where's one place you've always wanted to visit?
Paris France.  As cliché as it is, I can’t think of a time I haven’t wanted to go.

What ARE your thoughts on guacamole?
I think it’s absolutely fabulous.  Thank you very much for asking, Audrey.

Go-to Bible verse?
Blessed is a man who endures trials, because when he passes the test he will receive the drown of life that He has promised to those who live Him.
~ James 1:12.

Have you ever thrown your mashed potatoes up against the wall?
Yes.  I do it every time I eat mash potatoes.

Would you rather go for a hike or sit on the porch and read?
I think I’d rather sit on the porch and read.  But hikes are really nice too.

How tall are you?
I’m 5’4” and done growing.  Not super short or super tall.  If I was much shorter I would feel compelled to wear heals more often.  And let me tell ya, I do not like wearing heals. 

What is your favorite movie?
The live action Cinderella.  That movie makes me cry buckets.  The visuals are simply stunning.  

What's your favorite kind of chocolate?
All of it.  I prefer milk chocolate, but I even like unsweetened chocolate from time to time.

Do you like unicorns?
YAS, GIRL!  Unicorns are wonderful.  I think they’re my spirit animal actually. 😉

When you were younger, did you try to jump into books? (Like in Blues Clues :P )
Haha, no.  I did try very hard to get my toys to talk to me.  I thought they were alive, but extremely stubborn.

Do you get physical mail often?
Once every month or so.  I have a few pen-pals around the country that I talk too.

What is your favorite season?
Summer.  Although every season has its perks.

What is your favorite performance/show you've ever been in?
Peter Pan & Wendy.  Probably because I was able to play Wendy.

Who is one of your favorite authors?
Lois Lowery and C.S Louis.  Did you know his name is Clive Staples Louis?

Is Ella your real name?
No, but isn’t it pretty?  Maybe someday I’ll let you in on my real name.  We’ll see. 

What are some of your dreams/ambitions/goals?
I have so many!  I would love to perform on Broadway one day, be a foster mom and simply see what God has in store for me.  It’s easier to do the will of God if I don’t have set ideas on how I want my future to look.

What is the latest you've ever stayed up?
I used to have the worst insomnia and once I laid in bed until 4 a.m.  The latest I’ve ever stayed up on purpose was around 2.  I was at a late night cast party.

Favorite book and why?
Peter Pan!  I love it for 4 reasons.
1.       When I was little there was a picture book about Peter Pan and I literally checked it out from my library every time we went.
2.       I played Wendy in a play last spring.
3.       The writing is beautiful.
4.       It makes me cry.

Tell me about your ideal job.
I don’t know, man.  My ideal job would be having the freedom to pursue everything I enjoy.  Theatre, writing, blogging, traveling, interior design, architecture, graphic design and cosmetology.

Favorite quote and why?
I'm going to make everything around beautiful-that will be my life.
~ Elsie De Wolf

I live by this quote.  I make my room beautiful, my mind, my words, my home.  It is my life.   

Favorite baby animal?

Favorite period movie or tv show?
I don’t really watch much tv or many movies.

Favorite classic book?
A Little Princess or Treasure Island. 

What about theatre do you love most?
There’s this certain feeling I get when I’ve been nervously awaiting my queue backstage.  Then when I walk on, the lights hit my face and say my first line everything suddenly feels like it clicks into place and I know there’s no where else I’d rather be.  Every fiber of my being becomes the character.

Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration in everything.  I wrote a post all about what inspires me.

Favorite book character?
Can I say Wendy Darling or am I mentioning Peter Pan too much?  If so, then I’d say Lucy Pevensie.

One character from a book or movie you would love to meet and have a conversation with?
Hugo from The Invention of Hugo Cabret.

Coffee or tea?
Neither.  I just don’t enjoy anything without caffeine.  I do like iced chia from Starbucks.  Usually I prefer smoothies, though.

What did you last dream about?
Last night I dreamt I was running all over this warehouse.  It was stressful, and I literally remember nothing else, but it was one of those recurring dreams.

If you could live anywhere for a month where would it be?
A few years after the civil war in a giant house.  Think of the gorgeous dresses I could wear!

What’s your favorite thing to do in your spare time?
I enjoy creative writing, journaling, going for walks with my family and learning calligraphy.

What’s your favorite snack and beverage?
My favorite snack is avocado toast with lemon juice, swiss cheese and pepper.  My favorite drink is water.  It’s the only thing I drink most of the time.

What’s the least stressful and most enjoyable time of year for you?
It really depends.  I love spring and summer, though.  Everything and everyone seems so full of life, hope and vigor.

What are you most looking forward to in the remainder of 2018?
Simply seeing what God has in store for me.  I don’t know what this year is going to bring me, so I’m trying to soak up every moment of my life.

  1. I've actually not gone to bed a couple nights in my life...usually because I'm working late with my dad and we just...don't stop and go to bed...but sometimes just because we stay up late and then decide why go to bed when we're getting back up in a few hours.

    It hasn't affected me in the least in the least in the least....

    What was I saying???

    Ah. I love Lucy Pevensie too! She's probably my favorite character (I don't know why, seeing as I'm the Eldest Sibling) out of the four siblings (Prince Rilian is my favorite Narnia character, though. His story is just really cool!)

    Smoothies!!!! YES

    1. What? How is that even possible? I think I'd die. Haha! XD
      Yesss! She so sweet! Interesting. I didn't care for him that much, actually. Thank you for your hilarious comment. It made me smile.

  2. Oh! This post was too good! Loved getting to know you a bit more! Lucy Pevensie *heart eyes* she is the best! Cool, I am about 5'4 too...*high fives on same level * thanks for doing this post, I superbly enjoyed it!!!

    1. YAY! Aww, I'm so happy you enjoyed it. *high fives* I don't think I know many people who are my same height. Most are shorter or taller than me. No, thank you, Kalea!

  3. The live-action Cinderella is one of my all time favorite movies as well. For my 16th birthday party, I had a costume party (Movie/winter/Cinderella themed) and every one had to dress up as a costume from a movie, so I bought an expensive, custom made Cinderella dress, wearing it was truly such a magical experience. I don't think many people can say they have an actual ball gown hanging in their closet ;)

    1. YES! OH, I remember reading that post! It looked positively magical. Haha, I don't think most people can either. XD I literally want her dress so much. Someday we'll have to meet in real life and maybe you could let me try it on. ;)

    2. Thank you! It was quite magical ;)
      Yes, what fun that would be!

    1. YAY! *pumps fist* Thank you, Riley Aline. YES IT IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST. Yeah, I can't really describe it. It's just amazing to feel like you are someone else for a little while. RIGHT? Thank you for reading!
