hairy feet and pointy ears

That's what hobbits are known for, right?
Tyrean & Mary are so excited about the Hobbit movie, they made a blogfest for it! Thanks, ladies! I'm excited too! It's been so fun to reminisce my youthful experience as I read this classic with my boys at bedtime.

Here are the Hobbit Fest questions and my answers...

What is your favorite hobbit characteristic/or the one that you think closely resembles you . . .?
Well, I am NOT a neat freak and I am NOT good at baking and cooking. (yes, I am a poor example of a housewife, oh well) But I do like to eat and I am pretty stubborn and down right ornery sometimes. And I love a challenge!

If you could choose between a scrumptious second breakfast and a perilous unexpected journey – which would you prefer?
That is such a tough choice! Can I make my 2nd breakfast to go? As long as I have a wizard and some sturdy companions with me, I'll go! I could use an adventure!

Have you ever left behind something on a journey (expected or unexpected) and wished you could have it over and over again? (a pocket handkerchief?)
Can't think of anything. Our vacation motto is, if we forget something we need, we can buy it.

What is your Favorite part or quote from the book that you hope will be in the movie?
"Short cuts make for long delays." J.R.R. Tolkien, THE HOBBIT
How true it can be, though I'm the biggest short cutter around!

And here is my hobbity diva (couldn't resist!)
Happy Friday!

You make a cute Hobbit.
That's my motto for trips - that's what they make stores for.

Hi Tara .. some similarities here but not many .. the Hobbit Diva is great - but I think the film version wins!

Enjoy .. and 2nd breakfasts to go sounds good to me .. cheers Hilary

Does the perilous unexpected journey include a hot-looking elf? If so, I'm there. But I wouldn't mind taking my second breakfast with me. You know, if the option was available. :)

Cassie Mae said...

Oh! Look how cute you are even with your hairy toes :D

I'm totally a second breakfast girl. Unless the journey included a really hot guy as my guide :)

Oh my gosh, I had no idea about this blog fest. I would have joined in! I love your Hobbit diva. She's too cute.

We did leave something behind once on a trip. When my now 21-year old son was about 2, we went to Disney and accidentally left his Pooh Bear blanket in the hotel room when we left. Now this blanket was discontinued years before. I'd bought it for his older sister when she was little and she never used it, so I folded it up and tucked it away in hopes another munchkin down the road would want it. Oh my gosh, you would have the the world spun off it's axis and tumbled across the universe when we got home and found that blanket wasn't there. Thankfully, we called the hotel and they had it in their lost and found. Two days later it was back in my son's arms. Thank you Disney!

Love your blog, btw. Would love it more if you had a 'follow by e-mail' button. :-) *hint*

What a cute Hobbit diva. Very nice, indeed. I look forward to seeing the movie. Breakfast is such a great meal, it'd be tough to say no to that. But an adventure can be fun. It was a tough choice.

Cute Diva and I LOVE your new castle banner image! Has been too long since I read The Hobbit and I misunderstood the leave behind question. But I'm like you---whatever we leave behind we can buy, makes packing a lot less stressful...and the vacations a LOT more expensive, hehe.

Short cuts make long delays - too true!!! Love the picture!!!

Thanks for joining Hobbit Fest!

Rena said...

Ah! I love your Hobbit Diva! So cute!

Donna Hosie said...

Here from the Blogfest. And I LOVE your Hobbit diva. I wants one, precious!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

It's true about the short cuts.

Simon Kewin said...

Great answers - especially the breakfast one. It definitely should be possible to have both!

Gwen Gardner said...

What a cute little Hobbit you make:)

I'm not very domestic, either. Oh well. And adventures are so much more fun with friends.

Loved all your answers, Tara!

Livia said...

I loved your Hobbit diva and answers! Wonderful blogfest! Can't wait to see The Hobbit - getting hyped! :)

Rebekah Loper said...

oooh, I'd forgotten about that quote. I so need to re-read the book.

Mark Murata said...

"The eagles are coming! The eagles are coming!"

Tara Tyler said...

thanks, y'all!
i can't wait to see it!

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Reading this was fun. I do plan to see The Hobbit movie.

Brinda said...

Your answer to that question about leaving something behind is a great motto. I just wish I could do that. I'm the person who checks a hotel room 2 times before vacating it. I drive myself crazy!! :)

Hope Roberson said...

I try to tell myself the motto of "If we leave it, we can buy a new one/what we need when we get there", but I still stress out like crazy before a trip. You are so creative with your image wizardry! I love it!

Trisha said...

Nice quote :) and I would make a terrible housewife too. I can cook, but I hate doing so.

D..J. Kirkby said...

Awww what a cute little hobbit you are! Love the house. I can't wait to be well enough to go see the movie. *excited squee*

Love your hobbit diva image! Especially the pipe :-)
