Fun Post: Get to Know Me Tag!

Hello, everyone!
Today I'd like to do a blog tag I found online, just for fun. :) It's a list of 21 questions, so anyone joining the blog in the New Year can get to know something about me, (such as exactly HOW crazy I am. ;). Let's get started!

1. Are you named after anyone? No, I don't think so. My dad and mom just really liked the name "Mykaela". However, fun fact...right around the time I was born, there was an extremely popular T.V. show that had a main character named Mykaela. My parents did not know this. ;) So then about 5 years later, everyone and their uncle was naming their kids that after the show! ;P So funny. Now there are a lot of kids from my generation with the name.

2. When was the last time you cried?
Umm...unpleasant question. ;) I cried about two weeks ago because of some pretty extreme pain. :/

3. Do you have kids? No, but I would love to someday!!

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? Yeah, I think so! I would most likely be slightly weirded out by me, but I think I would still be friends. ;)

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot? Me?! Sarcastic?! Never.

6. Will you ever bungee-jump? You would have to pay me a very, very large amount of money for me to do that. And I'm a super adventurous person! Roller coasters, yes. Ziplining, yes. Cliff jumping, yes. Skydiving and bungee-jumping, no. That's where I draw the line. ;)

7. What’s your favorite cereal? Ahhh, this is such a hard question!! I'm going to name three because cereal is a weakness of mine. Um...I think granola, Cracklin' Oat Bran, and Honey Bunches of Oats. :)

8. What’s the first thing you notice about people? Whether or not they look friendly. If they are smiling, etc. It preps me for how the conversation might play out.

9. What is your eye colour? I have medium blue eyes.

10. Scary movie or happy endings? Happy endings, absolutely. I see no point in movies being scary just to be scary, I think it's stupid.

11. Favorite smells? Fresh bread, newborn babies, summer evenings, and fall candles.

12. Summer or winter? I love both, but I think I'd have to say summer, because I love swimming so much. Can't swim very often in the winter time. ;)

13. Computer or television? Computer. I haven't had a television in my house since I was 5, I barely remember it.

14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home? Samoa. I took a trip there in the summer of 2014, and it was SUCH an amazing experience.

15. Do you have any special talents? I play piano, and write music. I have my own cooking show, I've been knighted, and I can hold my breath for 30 seconds. (Only the first sentence of this was true...the rest is a quote from a movie, bonus points if you know which one. :'D)

16. Where were you born? I was born in Salem, Oregon.

17. What are your hobbies? Piano, singing, baking, reading, journaling, blogging, Pinterest, thrift store shopping, and hanging out with friends. :)

18. Do you have any pets? I don't, but I would love a dog at some point. I'm not at the right stage of life currently. ;P

19. Favorite movie? Eesh, another hard one. Again, I'm going to name a few. Ever After, Pride and Prejudice 1995 (a.k.a. THE ONLY REAL P&P), Narnia, all of the Elizabeth Gaskell movies, Princess Bride, disney movies....

20. Do you have any siblings? Oh, yes. ;) I have 7 younger siblings. Five brothers, ages 17, 15, 10, 8, and 6, and two sisters, ages 12 and 2. :)

21. What do you want to be when you grow up? "When I grow up"? I don't plan on that ever really happening, so... ;P I would love to be a Godly wife and mother, if The Lord allows. I'd also like to continue to be a songwriter, but perhaps to get some of my songs published. 

And that's all, folks! :) I hereby tag Kimberly, to continue in my footsteps of this get-to-know-me post. Have a great weekend, everyone!
P.s. Don't you love the picture at the top of this post?? It made me so happy. :)


  1. This is so fuunnnn!! Of course, I will accept the tag.

    "Rollercoasters, yes." You're welcome.

    Cereal. XD

    Was that a Despicable Me quote?

    You're so awesome. Never grow up!! <3

    1. Yay!! I can't wait to read your answers, though I most likely know most of them. XD ;P

      Yes. Thank you. ;)

      Teehee, you know me!

      YES it was!! Except the actual quote was more like, "I see you've been given the medal of honor...and a can hold your breath for 30 seconds? Not that impressive, really..." ;D

      Thank you!! I don't plan to. ;) <3

    1. Thank you, Elizabeth! :) I had so much fun with this post. I hope you are doing well!! <3

  3. Mykaela is such a pretty name. (even if it took me forever to learn how to spell it correctly ;)

    This blog tag idea is so fun! I love your responses,especially the favorite movie question...those are my all time favorites too!

    And the adventurous part..classic Mykaela, always ready to try new things! Hey,have you ever been swimming in Lake Chelan during winter? :D

    1. Thank you, Jenny! :) Yes, I don't think anyone in my entire life has spelled it correctly the first time. ;P Not a problem. ;)

      You have lovely taste in movies. ;D

      Haha! I have never been swimming in Lake Chelan in winter...however, I HAVE been swimming in Lake Michigan in winter! There were hunks of ice floating around in the water and I jumped off the end of a dock. ;D So...yeah. That good enough for ya?? :'D
