Here are my questions from Dina:
1. What is/are (they could be the same thing or different things) the: craziest, bravest, most daring thing you have ever done? 
I was once a Correctional Officer , I think that speaks for itself.


2. How did you start blogging and what are your goals from it? 
One of my college classes required to start a blog and I fell in love with blogging. It's a hobby/archive for me. I like to share my ideas and fun inspirational things in hopes to inspire others.


3. Do you have any nicknames or "alternate" names? If so, what are they? 
Yes my nickname is Eeka. When my nephew was little he couldn't pronounce his r's so Erica came out as Eeka and it stuck.


4. If you could take back one moment from your life and re-do it, would you do it? What would it be? I left a career that I was really good at. Instead of acting in haste I would have thought it through first. I really regret it.

My tags:

I know I cheated a little on that last one by not tagging 11. To be honest there are so many more awesome blogs I could tag, but I've got a lot on my plate this weekend...and I'm kinda exhausted from this week and my kids are waiting so patiently for me to finish my post so I can spend time with them.

Also I need to mention our winner for the Random Giveaway:
