While looking at my new friend Darilyn's blog, I saw a great mosaic, which she made. I thought I'd give it a try too.

If you want to too, here are the instructions (I copied these straight from Darilyn's blog):
1. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
2. Use only the first page of results, and pick one image.
3. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into Big Huge Lab’s Mosaic Maker to create a mosaic of the picture answers.

Here are the questions and how I answered them:
1. What is your first name? I love this photo. Don't we all like to think we're one of a kind?

2. What is your favorite food? Hmm. I wonder if you can tell the answer to this one.

3. What high school did you go to? Sunset High School, right here in beautiful Beaverton, Oregon. Never did I think I'd live here after living here my entire childhood, but here I am. There were no photos of Sunset High School on the first page of photos, so I went for the prettiest one I could find. Kind of couteracts my memories of high school--I didn't love it (there, it's been said).

4. What is your favorite color? Pink. There were so many beautiful photos to choose from, but tulips are my favorite flower, so there you have it.

5. Who is your celebrity crush? Okay, something else that hasn't been verbalized outside the walls of my home. I adore Robert Sean Leonard and have since high school when Swing Kids came out, but honestly, I don't think I ever told a soul this.

6. What is your favorite drink? Chocolate peanut butter milkshake.

7. What is your dream vacation? I want to see the Great Wall of China before I die. I'm so intrigued by it.

8. What is your favorite dessert? Banana splits! I would eat them nightly if I could. Actually, I used to when I didn't have to worry about my weight. Wow! Another deep, dark secret revealed.

9. What did you want to be when you grow up? A pilot. I flew a plane three times (not solo of course), but it was so exciting.

10. What do you love most in life? My family.

11. What is one word that describes you? Stubborn. 'Nuf said.

12. What is your nick name? Jules. No one ever calls me it any more, which makes me sad. There have been a handful of people in my life that have called me that. One woman in our ward used to come up to me and say, "Hey Jules." Instantly I felt close to her. My mom called me "Jule" because that's what they called my grandmother whose name was Julia.

I love this. I learned so many new things about you. The picture of those crabs is so cool. I love your blog of Quinlan too. I added your blog to my google reader but it must not have worked right because you have all of these new posts here that I didn't know about. I'm going to figure out what is going wrong right now.

I've missed Makenzie too this week. I can't wait to see her tomorrow morning.

I liked this more than a lot of the memes/quizzes going around. It's creative and fun :) I caught it via another vector in my circles of friends (which always seems to surprise me how these things overlap sometimes).

Mine's in my blog, too.

... hm, although I didn't explain them like you did. Come to think of it, that might be helpful :)

Jules- I worked with an elderly woman whose name was Julia. When I called her Jules one morning as I was getting her ready for her shower she was immediatly happy. That was her special name her husband called her, she was so happy to have been reminded. She was a Jewel.

You are a Jewel too-- our sweet little Jules. :o)

Love the pics- very beutiful representation of you.
