A Blogger Award

So.. I figured since this is the third time I have been given this, I better hop to it! (I am going to answer the questions of the first person who awarded me :)) Thank You KarlaCat, and Teressa!!
This award is given to new or up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers...the award is then passed along to other bloggers in the same category to help spread the word and support one another.
1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, and then create 
11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) 
to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
 5. No tag backs.

11 Random Facts:
-I'll only drink chai with soy milk.
-I named my dog Gizmo, after a gremlin.
-I'd take salty food over chocolate any day.
-I hate planning. I'd rather just see it happen.
-I'm an extravert. Can't you tell :) 
-I was a cheerleader in high school for one semester.
-I have a new love for bath and body works lotion. An expensive habit.
-I own a house but am currently renting another.
-My favorite thing to use my journal for is praying.
-I've never broken a bone.
-I have to sleep with a fan on.    

1.Do you have talents? If so, what is your best one?
-Sure. I can bake and sing pretty well. I'm also pretty awesome at anything Nintendo. Is that a talent?

2. What is your favorite thing to do while driving?
-drive? ;)

3.Do you parallel park, or are you a “drive around the block” type of person?
-Never needed to in AZ haha but I would definitely drive around looking for another spot.

4.What are you currently reading?  Or what is your favorite book?
 -I am reading the SheReadsTruth Advent plan right now and loving it! Unfortunately other than that I haven’t read anything in a while. My favorite book is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. 
5.Quick! The house is burning! What are 3 things you grab?
(assuming the hubs got himself out...)
-The Pups
-My phone
-The Mac (has all our photos on it) 
6.The one clothing store that never fails you is…?

7.One thing that most people may not know about you is…?
 I love to sing and thought that it was maybe something God had called me to ministry wise. It wasn't until The Lord gave me a heart for students and youth ministry that this changed. I still love to sing, but the desire has never been close to what it is now, for youth.
8.Favorite Color:  

9.What is your dream job?
-Youth ministry and I am so grateful to have already been given thatI would also love to bake all day..every day.

10. If I had a million dollars I would…?
-Tithe 10% of it, no that's not the churchy answer, I truly believe in the power of giving to God first. Then I would give it to my husband and let him decide. I am good with budgeting but I don't know what I would do with such a large sum. We would probably find a need, then try and meet it. I would also probably pay off our house and car loan to be debt free. 

11. Do you like your name? If not, what would you change your name to?
-I like Jess and now that I have been going by it for so long, Jessica sounds weird to me. Maybe I’ll start introducing myself that way again and see what happens :)
