Get to know you post!

My family and I have been vacationing at my parents cottage since Saturday. We've been having a great time relaxing and enjoying our time here. I have lots of pictures to post at the end of the week but until then I don't want to leave the blog completely abandoned so I was thinking it was time for another "get to know you post" like I did last year!! I had so much fun reading your replies and finding things in common with you!

Here are some more questions for you:

1. what was the first thing on your mind today when you woke up?
2. when was the last time you cried?
3. what do you do for a living?
4. do you have a blog? tell me a little about it
5. what is/are your favorite blog/s to read (i'm always looking for new ones to add to my list!)
6. what's one personal product you couldn't do without? (mine is mascara!)
7. what's your favorite cereal?
8. if you could go anywhere in the world right now where would you go?
9. what's your biggest fear?
10. do you have any questions for me?

I'm so excited to hear your answers! It will hopefully give me something to do today if it rains here at the cottage like its supposed to!

Have a great day!
