Liebster Award!


I’ve been awarded the Liebster Award!! {Three times actually *coughs guilty*} By Anna at, Molly at, and Laura at Thank you all for nominating me! 

Tag rules:
Thank the blog that nominated you for the award. *check*
Answer the questions they gave you.
Give 11 fun facts about yourself.
Nominate 11 other bloggers for the award, and give them 11 questions to answer.

*Rules copied from Molly’s blog.*

Okay! To the questions……

Anna’s questions:

1. Describe yourself (as if you’re a story character) in three words.
In three words? Ummm…Short green-eyed lady. 😀 

2. What’s your favorite first line in a book?
Oh goodness. Hmm…oh! “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered as the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters.” Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.  

3. What song was most recently stuck in your head? Why?
Lead Me by Sanctus Real. My sister had been listening to it and I just got it stuck in my head! It’s a really good song.

4. Boots, flip-flops, or tennies/converse?

5. Tell the most awkward story of you meeting someone new.
My heart pounded, color rose to my cheeks, and “hi” or a forced smile was the only thing I could manage…Not fun.

6. If you could reverse the ending of one book what would it be and how would you have it end?
Note: Anna this may be a spoiler for you because I heard you were reading the Princess Academy Series! So, warning. 😉

I would reverse the ending of the book The Forgotten Sisters (Third book in the Princess Academy series) by Shannon Hale. I would have made Miri and Peder get married, not just engaged. I would have also taken out the hint of their being a boys academy created, to establish who would marry Princess Astrid. It’s just to bittersweet for me! 

7. Favorite writing/reading snack?
None? I get too distracted!  XD

8. What authors are you looking forward to meeting in heaven? How would you introduce yourself?
I’m looking forward to meeting Jane Austen and Louisa May Alcott. I would probably stammer and say, “Hhiii! Could…or w-w-would you sign a book for me?” 

9. How many inches thick is the thickest book spine on your bookshelf?
That I have read on my bookshelf; 2 inches. 

10. Pens or pencils?

11. When you’re gone how do you hope to be remembered?
I hope to be remembered as a person who cared, laughed more than she cried, and always pursued the Lord’s will. 

And Laura’s Questions:

1. What is the most courageous thing you have ever done?
Really, I have no idea!

2. Do you prefer ice coffee or hot, or do you not like coffee at all?
Coffee isn’t for me. I just don’t like the taste very much. 🙂 

3. What is your favorite holiday?

4. What is one of your most special talents?
Playing the piano, writing, and listening to people.

5. What is your favorite book?
There are too many…but one of my favorite books are Interrupted by Rachel Coker.

6. What is one of the earliest childhood memories you have?
Me jumping up and down in excitement when I was going to be in a Christmas play. 🙂

7. Do you prefer cake or ice-cream?
Ice cream. 

8. How many books have you read this summer?
Maybe four?

9. Cats or dogs?

10. If you could have any exotic pet…*Any kind guys*, which would you choose?
A fox!

11. What is the best summer vacation you have ever gone on?

Wildwood, a Hume Lake Christian Summer camp. A week filled with amazing leaders and campers, crazy impactful teaching, and HUGE God moments!!

Almost done! Are you still with me??

And Molly’s questions! 

1. Do you like snakes? Would you hold one?
I don’t dislike them necessarily…just scared of them! Although, I would hold one if it were tame. 

2. What genre of music do you like?
I like Christian contemporary and instrumental. Does instrumental even have genres? 

3. What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream? (or don’t you like ice cream?)
Cookies and Cream.

4. How long have you been blogging?
A little over a year now which is weird! 

5. Summer or winter?

6. Inside or outside?
It depends on the weather…

7. Do you prefer to read or write?
They are both pretty equal. But if I had to choice, write!

Probably a book with 500 pages or so.
