Nominator Q&A: 
my biggest fear are snakes. i start my day off by waking up...then going to pee. my favorite person is the good Lord above. i prefer comedy over action...i like to laugh. the one thing i would do to change the world is to find a way that NO ONE would be or go hungry. we have SO much food in America that this should not be taking place. i started blogging b/c of others. i followed people's blog and then said, hey, i can do it. then i got some followers and it is taking off nicely. my hobby is reading, hunting for sales and freebies, and helping out my little brother (he is autistic). my favorite tv show is Law and Order: SVU, Real Housewives, and Days of Our Lives. if i could have a mentor it would be Mya Angelou. i prefer cold weather, i can bundle up to be warm. only so much you can take off when you are hot and too much sweat makes me itchy. remember the show captain planet? i would want to be mother earth...Gia so i could give instructions on how to save our planet. 

My Questions:
1.what is your middle name? 2. how did we meet? 3.what is your favorite snack food? 4. what is your job title and/or what is your dream job? 5. what is you favorite/dream vacation spot? 6. what is your favorite sports team? 7. what is your favorite song? 8. what do you cook really well? 9. what is your favorite smell? 10. if you could study/learn about anything, what would it be? 11. what is your pet peeve?
