Tag, You're It!

While I was on vacation these past 2 weeks, I was tagged twice! Katy from Legacy of a Writer and Casey from Writing for Christ tagged me, and I'm excited to answer these fun questions:

Are you hot/warm/cold right now? Where are you at?

Well, I'd say I'm warm. I'm writing this post in the wee hours of Saturday morning--so I'm sitting at my desk in my bedroom listening to music with my headphones in, knowing I should get to bed soon... There's just so much to catch up on now that I'm back from vacation! ;)

Upload a picture of the wallpaper you are using.

Since I just got back from vacation (have I already said that?) and saw this was one of the questions, I just changed my wallpaper from a picture of the castle in Disneyland (from our previous vacation) to a picture of the view from our rental home from this last vacation in Oregon. God's creation is beautiful!

When was the last time you ate chicken?

Ummm...that would be yesterday (Friday). I had chicken on my Caesar salad for lunch/dinner (lunner? dunch?) on the way home. Yum! (And just as a head's up, I'm writing this Friday night/Saturday morning, but I'm posting this on Sunday. Sorry for the confusion!)

What song or songs have you listened to recently?

Love this question! Why? Because I get to share about the new CD my parents got me while we were on vacation at the Christian Family Bookstore. It's called Fiddle-Levity, and it is so beautiful and upbeat! I really enjoy fiddle music. And when I played this CD at our rental home, my grandparents, my sister, and my parents all loved it, too! Here's one of the songs featured on the CD called "Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring":

Do you have any nicknames? If so, what are they?

Sort of! One of them is "the cling-on," because I'm always hugging someone in the family. ;)

Tag 5 bloggers.

1. Bluerose from Bluerose's Heart. She's got a lovely blog and shares a wide variety of reviews and fun posts!

2. Hannah from Project Journal. Hannah is an awesome girl with lots of energy and creativity! Her blog started out as a project for school, but has since become a fun hangout. ;)

Ladies, feel free to answer the same questions I did on your own blogs if you're up to being tagged. ;) If not, no worries!

Everyone, be sure to check out their awesome blogs! Katy and Casey, thanks for tagging me!

I got to see David Klinkenberg in concert a couple years ago when he was just getting started and he opened for Mark Schultz and Big Daddy Weave. I think I need to get this cd! ;-)

Fun answers! I loved this kind of post, even more fun than a blog award, imo. :)

That's awesome! It would certainly be neat to hear him in concert. :) And yes--I think you would love this CD!

I agree that this is a fun post to write. Thanks for tagging me! ;)


Bluerose said...

I tried leaving a comment earlier and it wouldn't let me. :P
Thank you for tagging me, though! You just made my day better! :)

Renee said...

Thanks for tagging me! It brought a smile to my face. I'll try to post soon . . .

Amber Holcomb said...


Sorry about that! Blogger has been stubborn lately, hasn't it? :P

Glad I could "tag" you, and happy that it brightened your day! :D


Amber Holcomb said...

Renee Ann,

You're welcome! I'm glad I could share the smiles! :)

Oh, how fun. If you don't mind I'll answer here...I'm sort of in the process of processing my blog (that probably doesn't make any sense...but what I am doing is prioritizing and maybe figuring out what to do with my blog at the stage I'm in.

I'm quite cool right now with central air sitting in my computer room in the dark answering these questions.

Chicken? I had some chicken tenders for lunch...yum :)

Wallpaper? I need to get some, don't have any on my PC right now.

Songs listened to recently would be at church the worship music and kids worship CD in the preschooler room where I taught this week.

Nicknames: Jules, Ju, J

Thanks for tagging me. These are a fun set of questions and I really appreciate people remembering my blog when I haven't been doing the greatest at keeping it updated.

Amber Holcomb said...


I don't mind at all! Fun answers--thanks for playing along! :)

I hope it all goes well with deciding what to do for your blog, as well as with your writing. :) We've missed you around the blogosphere, but I know you're keeping busy. Feel free to e-mail in time, though! :)

God bless!
