  • Give 11 random facts about yourself
  • Nominate 11 blogs and notify them of their nomination
  • Give these blogs 11 questions to answer

Here are the questions I got:

  1. What’s your most prized possession?

My laptop. If I didn’t have it I would be so out of whack.

2. Do you believe in ghosts? Tell me why or why not.

I do believe in ghosts. I once lived in a house that was over 100 years old and I had a few experiences. I talked about them in a past post:

3. Deep dish or thin crust pizza?

Thin crust. I like it crispy.

4. If you could have dinner with any celebrity or public figure, who would it be and why?

It would be Lady Gaga. I just lover her, I feel like she would just be so warm and comforting and show actual interest in me and my ideas and I would leave that dinner feeling really good about myself.

5. What are your top three places on your travel bucket/wish list?

New Orleans, LA, The Philippines, and Japan.

6. Where’s your favorite place in the world?

As of right now, the Texas hill country.

7. Are you a dog or a cat person?

I like both but I don’t want to own any. I have kids and to have to take care of kids and pets is too overwhelming for me. Maybe when my kids are grown and I need something to care for.

8. Let’s settle this once and for all: Which is better, McDonald’s or Burger King?


9. What would your dream job be?

I would love to make money from writing, I want to write about things that educate and inform people. I also like the idea of being a psychologist, I’d like to help victims of abuse or study criminal psychology. Or a lawyer, specifically a prosecutor. I’d want to put the bad guys away. I’d also like to become a teacher.

10. Do you think your personality aligns with the traits associated with your zodiac sign?

Some of them, yes. I am a Scorpio, which means I’m a water sign. Water signs are very emotional, which I am. I also do think I’m mysterious because a lot of time when people meet me they don’t know how to take me and then once they get to know me they say, “You are totally different than what I thought you were when we first met.”

11. What’s your favorite chore and your least favorite chore?

My favorite chore is laundry. Least favorite is dishes.

My Facts:

  1. My mother named me after a little old lady she cared for when she worked in a nursing home while she was in college. She thought it was cool that this old lady had a young girl’s name so she named me Cadie so I would be young forever.
  2. My name is mispronounced all the time, like Cady Herring in Mean Girls. Just like that.
  3. My sons names are Cillian and Felix. If they had been girls their names would have been Imogen and Vivienne.
  4. I’m an ENTJ. If you don’t know what that means Google Meyers-Briggs personality test.
  5. I always have to have a fan on while I’m sleeping. Even if it’s cold outside.
  6. My favorite color is teal.
  7. I wish I could wear sandals all year round.
  8. I suffer from depression and anxiety. Some days are good, some days are really bad.
  9. I can recite every word of the Lion King, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, The Aristocats, and Beauty and the Beast.
  10. I love musicals. If it will annoy you to hear me sing all the words, don’t watch one with me.
  11. I don’t do pumpkin flavor. Pecan pie is the best holiday pie!

  2. You can come over and watch musicals here and sing all the words to the songs at the top of your voice – surely that is what musicals are for!
    And pecan pie over pumpkin pie – you definitely have that right!

  5. Wow, a 100 year old house! I can only imagine all of the hauntings and unexplainable things that happened. My childhood home was built in the 40s/50s (I don’t remember the exact year) and has had many tenants, according to a quick Google search. My moon sign is Scorpio and apparently, that makes me an emotional wreck while still striving to be unemotional. It’s rough, but now that I know water signs are known to be emotional, it all makes sense!
