The Sunflower Blogger Award

Fun post today!
We were nominated for this reward by none other than our favorite author, Jaye L. Knight. That was pretty exciting :)
Here's how it's going to work. We're going to start out by naming 11 random facts about ourselves. Then we'll answer Jaye's questions and nominate other bloggers to continue this award.

Anna's answers will be in dark green.
Katie's answers will be in light green.

Our Answers to the 11 Questions

1.What is your favorite kind of tree?
- I like Willow trees.
- I'm a fan of River Birch.
2.Do you prefer tea or coffee or neither?
- Neither. I can't get used to the taste.
- I don't like coffee, and I'm not a big fan of tea.
3.What is your favorite social media site?
- Probably Facebook, just because most of the people I know are on there. It's the easiest way to find out news of other people's lives even though I don't write up things on it much.
- Facebook... For me there's not really another option.
4.What is the last sentence you wrote in a story?
- Enna settled back against the huge boulder that was maintaining the secrecy of her hiding spot.
- She was hot and tired. (Yeah, not much)
5.Who is your favorite historical figure and why?
- I honestly don't have an answer for this. I'm not really into history.
- Like Katie, I don't really have a historical figure that I could really call my favorite. 
6.What is your biggest pet peeve?
- Sharing a drink using the same straw. *shivers*
- Seeing J-Walkers cross the road when there's a crosswalk 20 feet away.
7.What’s your favorite dessert?
- Giant cookie. You put cookie dough in a frying pan, bake it, then put ice cream and chocolate sauce on it :)
-Cheesecake. I love cheesecake.
8.If you could live in any time period (past, present, or future) what would you choose?
- It would be interesting to see the future, but I'm really happy where I'm at right now.
- I actually don't know, I've never thought about that before. Like katie, I love where I'm at right now, but I think it'd be fun to see the past.
9.What is your favorite book to re-read (besides the Bible)
- Resistance! It came out less than a month ago and I've already read it twice. I'm starting it for the third time.
- The Makilien Trilogy. I'm not the kind of person who normally re-reads books.
10.What genre do you read most?
- Fantasy
- Same as Katie, Fantasy.
11.What is the best movie you have ever watched?
- This is a really hard question. I suppose I'd just have to go with the LOTR trilogy. I know it's not one movie, but I'll have to tweak the question a bit :)
- I like the Princess Bride, it's always a good choice.
