30 Day Blog Challenge-Day 26-30

It's the beginning of October. The air has the extra crisp and there's a crunching of the leaves under your feet. I must say, I just love Fall!
Here's the very end of my 30 day blog challenge! I must admit, this was fun. However, is there anything else you would like to know about me? Personal or crafting related or anything else? Feel free to ask in the comments and I'll dedicate a whole other post to answer those questions! I'm an open book and I don't mind sharing. Sometimes I feel like I don't share much about ME on here, just mostly my crafts. So, if there's anything you want to know, ask away! :)

26 If you could go to Disney World with any celebrity alive today, who would it be?
Oh. This is a tough one! I think it would have to be Matt Smith. #1, because I'm madly in love with him, and #2 because I would love to talk about Doctor Who for a full day. :)

27 Post one confession/secret
After thinking about this for a while, I'll confess: I am INCREDIBLY insecure about my work and most things in general. In my day to day life I'm not a perfectionist at all, but when it comes to my crafts, I'm so hard on myself. I over analyze and if someone leaves me feedback or emails me and says something like "Thanks so much for the _____" I always think, "OMG! THEY MUST HATE IT!!" It's so silly, but it's true. I'm way too hard on myself when it comes to my crafting. :)

28 Mountain hideaway or beach house?
Mountain hideaway all the way! I would love to live on the side of a mountain, with an amazing view of the whole scenery around. I would absolutely love a log cabin. :)

29 What is on your mouse pad?
Oh no! I don't have a mouse pad!! Seth does, and it's Star Trek, does that count? LOL!

30 Hugs or Kisses?
I really love them both, but there's nothing better than getting a really great hug after a crappy day. Isn't that the best feeling? :)

Thanks so much if you've followed along with this challenge! I know I slacked off and posted many days at a time (like this post*OOPS!*) but it was fun, and I hope you learned some new things about me. And again, ask any questions that you might have and I'll dedicate an entire post to it! :)

I was going to finish up my 30 day blog challenge, but I feel that this is more important. I feel that maybe some of you are tired of hearing about it, but it's time to bring up Mr. Steve Jobs.

Yesterday, this news hit me really hard. I wasn't sure why at first. I continued to read articles, and I became more inspired than anything else.
Have you ever read anything about Steve Jobs? Let me give you a basic, quick timeline.

1976-Steve Jobs is 21. He drops out of college and starts a computer company in a parent's garage with Steve Wozniak. The first Apple computer, also known as the first personal computer, is born.

By the time Jobs was 25, he was already a multimillionaire, with his computers being distributed all over the world.
By 26, he was on the cover of Time magazine.
By 30, Jobs was fired from Apple.

If you get time, I highly recommend you read up on Steve Jobs. His story is amazing, and inspiring.

I read articles where they call him a genius, compare him to Edison, and say that he's had the biggest impact in the world of computers. All of this, and so much more is true.
Yesterday, the world lost the most creative person that the world has seen in a very long time. Jobs once said that he believes the outside of their computers should be as beautiful and aesthetically pleasing as the hardworking hardware and software inside. Marketing genius, brilliant, amazing, revolutionary are just a few words I would like to use to describe him.

And so, as I sit here on my Macbook, with my iPhone next to me, and even using my Apple router, I would like to thank Mr. Jobs.
Mr. Jobs, you will FOREVER be remembered. You've created such amazing inventions as iPods and iTunes, which has changed the way the world listens to music. You had the drive that most people can only dream of. You had the skill, technique and knowledge to literally change the world. I truly hope that he knows the impact that he had.
RIP Steve Jobs. Your long battle is over. My condolences go out to his family and friends.
Sent lovingly from my MacBook.

30 Day Blog Challenge-Day 21-25

I know, slacking again, but again, I'm on vacation, so hopefully you can forgive me. :)

21. What's your favorite Broadway musical?
Well, I haven't seen a lot of musicals. However, for my first Valentine's Day with Seth, he bought me tickets to go see Jersey Boys. HOLY COW did I love it! The music alone was worth it. If you want a good one to go see, I would definitely recommend it. :)

22. If you only had 24 hours to live, what would you want to do?
See question 9-I can't believe this was on there twice! Geez!

23. Who's your favorite Care Bear?
I think my favorite was also Lucky Bear.

24. What do your parents do for a living?
My mom has always been a stay at home mom. Shortly after moving to central Florida she worked at the YMCA for a while in the nursery. She watched the kids and babies while their parents went and worked out and stuff.
My dad is a civil engineer. What does that entail? Well, I'm not quite sure. LOL! I know he works quite a bit and I know that he works hard. :)

25. Computer or television?
Oh, EASY question! Computer all the way! Seth and I don't have TV, we just have our computers. Growing up I always had TV, so it was weird when I didn't, but I realized that a computer can do everything that a TV can do. Plus, it gives us a lot of wonderful time together, so we don't have the distraction of a TV. Instead we will watch the few shows we watch on Hulu and then hang out on our computers. :)

30 Day Blog Challenge-Day 18, 19 & 20

I'm on vacation-in Florida-but I thought I would make some time since I probably won't be for a few days. :)

18 What was your most recent trip of more than 50 miles?
A: Well, I'm in Florida now! haha! My sister just had her second child, a beautiful baby boy! I planned to come at this time, but the baby is just about 5 days old today, which is just precious. I'm definitely a proud aunt, and don't worry, I've already spoiled him tons! :)

Just look at that squishy face! So cute!! His name is Jonah Ryan Lewman and he was born on 09/19 weighing in at 6 lbs 13 oz. He's TEENY TINY!
19 What is your favorite pizza topping?
A: Honestly? Cheese. If I'm in the mood I'll have other stuff on it (tomatoes, jalepenos, onion, all kinds of stuff!) but in the end, the one main thing is cheese. :)
20 What is the worst thing that happened to you during the past week?
A: Well, today made me SO MAD! After a 4 hour layover in Minneapolis, I got onto the flight to Tampa. The woman in front of me decided to lean her chair back. Well, I'm tall, and when you do that, it squishes my legs. This is the conversation that ensued from that:
Me: Excuse me ma'am, but would you mind putting your seat up? See, I'm really tall and when you lean it back like that, it squishes my legs, and I also can't put my tray table down.
Her: No, I can't do that.

I decided that my next 2 and a half hours would be dedicated to making this woman's life hell. I chose to point out how much it squished my legs by digging my knees directly into her back. She later proceeded to turn to her friends and talk bad about me, how inconsiderate of me to do that to her. Bahaha! In the end, it amused me, but I was so angry that she was just so rude.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

30 Day Blog Challenge-Day 16 & 17

Q: 16 What is the first think you notice about a guy or girl?
A: It's all about the eyes for me! I love blue eyes, they're definitely my weakness!

Q: 17 What was the last movie you've seen?
A: I think probably the one I remember the most was Paul. If you haven't seen it, go now. Not only do I have a very huge crush on Simon Pegg, but it was hilarious. If you watch it, definitely leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

And I might enjoy it even more because I have been to Roswell and seen all the cheesy things like the movie. :)

30 Day Blog Challenge-Day 11-15

I know, I can't even keep up with this. But, I have good reason. I was away for the weekend, and I came back to my sister giving birth to a wonderful baby boy! Now I'm exhausted. And I leave Saturday to head back to Florida for a week to visit the new little baby! So, I'm going to try my hardest to do my challenges as they come. :)

11. Top 5 favorite bloggers you like to read
This is a fun one! I highly recommend these blogs! Also, these are in no particular order.
Spooky Pooky Creations
33 Stitches
The Dainty Squid
12. A photo of yourself and what you did today.
Worst picture ever? Most definitely. Today, I worked. I plan on early bedtime to catch up from so much missed sleep this weekend. :)

13. Tattoos. If you have one, post it and it’s story. If not, what do you want?
I'm not going to list them all, but I will mention my favorite. It was my first one, added to years later. It's dice, my maiden name. I got it with my sister, knowing that we couldn't carry on the Dice name. There is a 4 on one dice to mark the people in our immediate family. There is a 2 on the other one to symbolize me and my sister. Years later me and my sister went back and she got Big Sis around hers and I got 'Lil Sis around mine. It's my first, my most meaningful and my favorite. :)
14. What type of music do you like to listen to?
Well this is an impossible question to ask me. Favorites are oldies, most definitely. Frank Sinatra, Elvis, anything classic rock-Dylan, Creedence Clearwater Revival. That's really just a few of my GIANT ipod collection. :)
15. Top 5 favorite Sports players (male or female)
I'm not much of a sports fan, except football. And I don't really have many favorite football players. Sorry! :)

I hope to be back tomorrow, after a lot of sleeping and resting, and back to my blogging schedule.

30 Day Blog Challenge-Day 9 & 10

Just be a little bit prepared for my posts to be coming a few days at a time. Coming up I have some serious traveling coming up. This weekend I'm taking a girl-cation with some awesome girl friends to stay the night in Missoula to attend a Taste of Home Cooking Show and then shop! WOOHOO! Then, the following week I will be going back down to Florida to see my sister and the family if my sister EVER gets this baby out of her! :) I can't wait to see my niece and the new baby. :)

So, here's questions 9 & 10
Q: 9 What would you do if you only had 24 hours left to live?
A: Geez. I hate questions like this and thinking about things like that. UGH! I would spend the day calling/Skyping my family, telling everyone possible that I love them. I would want to curl up on the couch with my husband and just relax. I think that's all I would want to do, just say my goodbyes and relax.

Q: 10. What is the first thing you notice about people?
A: At least this isn't as depressing. HAHA! The first thing I notice is eyes. They have always been my thing. I'm a COMPLETE sucker for blue eyes. I always tell Seth that that's how he got me, with his eyes. It might also be why I love Frank Sinatra so much. :)
