More Than You Wanted to Know...

A big thank you to Jesseca from Whimsical Writings! I saw some various other blog authors do this yesterday, and wondered curiously when I would be tagged...it took a little over twenty-four hours. ;) Seriously though, I hope y'all have fun getting to learn more than you wanted to know. B-)


>>Vital Stats:

Name: Rebekah Marie Eddy

Nicknames: Reba, Becks, Bekah, Horse Freak, Sunshine-girl, PK, and Cheesy (that was for the grin I pull when someone is trying to take my picture unexpectedly. ;)

Place of Birth: Port Orchard, Washington. We're right across from Seattle.


Worst School Subject: (yeah, I know, I added this one...)

Need I say more? ;)

>>Firsts:

Best Friend: Jesus. (Oh, not the obvious answer? Fine...) Siblings.

Award: The Liebester Award on my blog. Several times, actually. :) Also, I've won Second and Third Place for stories. And I'm close to getting my certificate for graduating high school! (Super excited about that one! ;)

Sport: I'm not very good at any one sport in particular...I dabble in several (my brothers drag me into playing with them. ;) These include American football, volleyball, Ping-Pong, basketball, baseball, softball, and Frisbee. I'm pretty much horrible at all of them, but it's a way I can hang out/interact with my brothers. :)



Real Holiday: Ok, so when you're an older sister in a family of twelve, no vacation is "real". Most of the time you're "vacationing" you're making meals, picking up after messy younger siblings, or babysitting while your parents have a well earned date night.

However, I have been to Canada once when I was four:
 I went to Ethiopia with my Dad (missions related) when I was fourteen:
 
And back and forth to Cannon Beach OR several times.


You get free nights there sometimes if you're a full-time pastor's family! Surely one of those times count, right? ;)


Concert:
I went to a Piano Guys concert in Seattle one Christmas. That was AWESOME. I highly recommend their music...I should warn you, they are Mormons...but very talented Mormons. :)




>>Favorites:

Film: ONE??? What are you asking me??? I'll try to narrow it down to six:
The Giver
Big Hero 6
Ever After
The Princess Bride
Star Wars
Lord of the Rings
There could have been LOTS more, believe me! Count yourselves lucky.

TV Show: Zorro (the black and white version).
 

Color: Blue. No Green. No Purple. No Black. No Silver. No Blue...bother. I like them all!



Song:
Favorite Hymn: Be Thou My Vision
Favorite Popular Song: You Raise Me Up
Favorite Love Song: a tie between Love is Like an Ocean and Don't Give Up

Restaurant: I'm not picky. Anything Italian, Mexican, or American is just fine with me. :)


Books: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! NOT THAT QUESTION!! In through the nose, out through the mouth, in through the nose, out through the mouth....
I'm assuming you don't want me to chose the easy out: the Bible. Bother.
You're going to have to have another list:

Fiction:
The Chronicles of Narnia (by C. S. Lewis)
The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings Trilogy (by J. R. R. Tolkien)
The Mysterious Benedict Society (by Trenton Lee Stewart)
The Black Stallion Series (by Walter Farley)
The Wingfeather Saga (by Andrew Peterson)
The Anne of Green Gables Series (by L. M. Montgomery)
The Sacket books (by Louis L'amour)
1-6 The Mornelly's (by Emily McConnell)

Non-fiction: (other than the Bible)
The Hiding Place
If I Perish
By Searching
Unexplained Mysteries of WWII


>>Currently:

Feeling: Like all is right with the world. And a little hungry.

Single or Taken? I'm a Christian, homeschooled seventeen-year-old girl who's dad is a pastor. Make a wild guess. ;)



Eating: I'm not allowed to eat by our computer, so nothing right now...but in an hour, I'm going to start making pizza for dinner with my older sister. *licks lips* Can't wait!


Watching: Nothing right now. Probably The King & I later tonight though. Dad has an executive board meeting, which makes our chances pretty hopeful since mom will probably try to take a nap or something while he's gone. ;)

Wearing:  A black tee-shirt and jean skirt. No surprises there. ;) I'm usually wearing either black or gray or jean every single day despite my sparkling personality. B-) And I'm barefoot as usual. ;)


>>Future:

Want Children? As many as God will give me!

Want to be Married?  I think maybe this question should have gone first...it kind of goes without saying that if I want children of my own I'll also want to get married...so my answer is a resounding yes! ;)

Careers in Mind: I don't know if one would call being a mom a career, but that's what I'm hoping to be when I "grow up". In the meantime, I'd like to write, write, and write some more! :)


 Where do you want to live? I'm pretty happy right where I am...but it would be awesome to live anywhere in the British Isles: Scotland, Ireland, or England preferably. B-)

 
>>Do You Believe In:

God: Obviously.

Miracles: Absolutely.

Love at first sight: Depends on the persons involved. I think it can happen, but VERY rarely.

Ghosts: No. (Really, who would WANT to believe in ghosts?)


Aliens: Nope.

Heaven? Yes, hallelujah. I'd be in an awful spot if it weren't, as would we all!

Hell: There too. Aren't you glad God sent His Son to take away our sins so we don't have to go there? I know I am!

Kissing on the first date: NO! I've been to a LOT of weddings, so I know at the end there's this thing called "a first kiss". Which means that that special kiss should absolutely NOT be used already! Patience is a virtue people!

Yourself:
 Sometimes. But when I start thinking that I can do everything, usually that means a pin is headed my way to pop my blown up ego.
It's a delicate balance. It's important to be confident in the things I do, but I also need to make sure I'm not being overly confident in myself.
"We can do all things THROUGH CHRIST..."

That was fun! :) Hope you had fun reading about me. I know I had a lot of fun coming up with answers. ;) Here's who I'm tagging:

Sharon from The Smallest Small
Lydia Scott from C'est La Vie
Emily McConnell from The Imaginary World of Emily McConnell
Sarah and Margaret Eddy from Preparing for the Ultimate Career 

One last thing before I go, I just thought I'd warn you:

 
Until I post again...
God bless!

  1. Okay, first of all, Rebekah, I LOVE your front blog picture of your family! It is so beautiful and amazing and WOW!!! :D

    HA, math…. :P

    Yay, you came to Canada! Which province did you go to?

    Love your answers, Rebekah :)

    1. Thanks! I really like the picture too...it's one of my favorites. ;) Yeah, I FINALLY figured out how to get a picture behind my blog title. It's embarrassing how long it took me to figure it out. Don't ask.
      Yeah...math. :P
      To answer your question about Canada, we went to Victoria. Do you know where that is? (hint: look near Washington)
      Glad you enjoyed!

  2. Great answers. My curiosity is satisfied. *insert ninja face* :P
    I also love Big Hero Six, The Giver, and The Piano Guys.
    And I think I saw the Wingfeather Saga somewhere up there... hm, surprise surprise. :)

  3. I've been so busy I've hardly been on any blogs, Rebekah. But this one was really fun. :) And I'm also called "Bekah" and "Beks" though my best friends shortened my name a different way: "Rebek." :)

    1. Don't tell my family or that will also be added to my list of nicknames. ;)
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I like all the little pictures in between! :) "Keep calm and listen to the Piano Guys"...now THAT is sound advice.

  5. Wait, Rebekah, are you saying you're Taken?? You should tell your family these things before posting it on the internet...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I would...but since I didn't, you can safely assume that I'm NOT taken. Though upon second thought it might be safer to say that I AM taken on the internet. ;)

  6. I absolutely loved reading all your answers! I totally agree with your assessment of a "real holiday". It's so true! :P
    Can I come visit you in Ireland or England??? Please? :D I loved the picture you put with the "single or taken" question! I'm that everyone was just *dying* to know the answer to it. B-)

    1. I thought you might. Us big sisters KNOW. B-)
      Oh please!!! I'd love to have you pop over for tea and biscuits my dear chap! ;) (Oh wait...isn't that used with guys?? Never mind...scratch that. ;)
      Yeah...I bet. ;) For the record, if someone is ACTUALLY dying because they didn't know the answer: I'm single. Just as an fyi. ;P

  7. This was a very interesting post Rebekah! One of the most fun looking tags I have ever seen. :)
    Ah yes, and I agree with that command to math. It's always asking us to solve its problems, often times by finding its "x". I hate to break it to Math but its ex is probably not coming back!
    A Piano Guys concert?! Excuse me while I turn green with envy... I think they are about the only musical group I would pay to see live!
    Thank you for tagging me Rebekah! I look forward to doing this!
    Thanks also for the heads up about tonight's forecast! I'll be sure and be ready when the dark descends. ;)

    1. Seriously! Math is one of the best things in school!!! Algebra *dreamy grin*

    2. I enjoyed your (sometimes humorously sarcastic) answers.
      Whose your favorite character in the Mysterious Benedict Society books (I've only read the first one)? Constance? ;)

      Delete
    3. On that I disagree. :) Ok, Algebra was fine...but Geometry? *shudder*. That's one part of my life I'll NEVER want to relive.
      Thanks for stopping by, and glad you enjoyed!
      My favorite character? Probably Kate. But they're all awesome. :)

  8. I had fun reading your answers, Rebekah!
    I agree with you that math is the worst subject. ;)
    I thought that the married question should've come before the children question too. ;)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Isn't it awful! ;) Like I said before, I didn't mind Algebra too much...some of it was actually ok. But Geometry (ESPECIALLY the proofs) was terrible.
      I know, right? It made me smile to see how many people agree with me on that one. :)

  9. I enjoyed laughing my way through your answers, Rebekah! :D Wow, Ethiopia sounds amazing! :) Oh, your header is so beautiful!!!!!!

    1. Thanks! ;)
      It really was. <3 I hope to go back someday. :)
      Thanks again! I love that picture of our family.

  10. I really like your blog header! What an awesome picture!

    As far as the post, I had SO MUCH FUN reading those answers! Yes, we would get along well! Isn't The Princess Bride fun? Although it kinda goes downhill when Wesley gets put on . . . the MACHINE. From there on he's not too much of a "hero" per se. And you already know that I agree with you as far as liking Star Wars and Lord of the Rings! Isn't the Black Stallion series great? Have you read the whole series? Narnia is awesome! I read the Hobbitt once but don't remember it too well so I plan on rereading it and then reading Lord of the Rings. Sorry for my rather long comment. Thanks for posting!

    1. Thank you! Hopefully, when I figure out how, I'll use it as my button too...but who knows how long until THAT happens. ;)I'm notoriously bad at figuring out technical things on the computer quickly. B-)
      I know, Wesley isn't the best "hero" per se, but he has his moments. I really like the sarcastic comebacks in that movie. ;)
      I love the Black Stallion series. Yes, I've read them all, (via library) and I'm working on collecting them all for my own. I only have the first four so far. :)
      No problem! I like long comments! B-)

      Delete
    2. I have not read the entire Black Stallion series but I have read a good deal of them. I have maybe 10 books out of the series.

I LOVE COMMENTS. But be warned, if your comment is impolite, contains swear words, or is disrespectful of God, I will kill it. Just kidding. ;)
(Seriously though...it WILL DIE.)
