  1. What is my favorite part about winter? Christmas with close friends and family and untouched snow. I know that’s two, but I couldn’t decide.
  2. Where do you see yourself living in five years? I’d like to say a tropical island somewhere, but most likely it will be back in New Jersey.  😦
  3. How many books are in the room you’re in now? Four. If you count my Kindle, it’s closer to two hundred and fifty-four.  🙂

  11. If you could change one thing about your appearance, what would you change? If I could change anything, I would get rid of the slight limp I have secondary to my hemorrhage. Some days it looks worse than others. But hey, I’m not complaining. I’m just sayin’…cuz you asked.



  1. What inspired you to start a blog?
  2. Who was the most influential person in your life?

  2. I accepted from you and another person. Is there a rule on how many nominations one can accept. Do you know? I put you both together but answering you both at the end. If I can’t I’ll just do the first one I had accepted. Let me know if you know the answer. I already did the draft and am nearly done.


  3. Wow! Thank you for the nomination! I loved reading your responses. I have a puppy named Sophie too. Santa brought her for my daughter at Christmas. She’s pretty attached to me since I’m with her all day and helped Santa’s elves find her 😉 She’s my little Sophapilla!


  4. Luv U Mama Lily!
    Candles from scratch?!? Really? I love making candles, but I only know how to use the ready-made wax that you melt on the stove and add scent and color. Oh, well, one time I did spend a weekend making tallow for tallow candles, but the smell of them was truly awful. What kind of candles did you make, and could you teach me how to make them? Pretty please, Mama Lily!


    • Lol. I would love to. I’d have to go back into my files from way back and dig up the measures. I used to do this when eBay was basically in its infancy. I primarily did votive candles and floaters. Anything larger was cost prohibitive for me, considering I did it as a paid hobby and for gift giving. I look at eBay now, and the market is saturated! I should have built myself a little empire back then! 🙂
