The Awesome blogger award x2 *Cheers*

Hey hey lovelies. How are you on this lovely day? I’m doing quite good! I am back with another award and I AM SO EXCITED!! I was nominated by the wonderful Erin over at her blog, KittyJade and I was also nominated by the amazing Jirah, over at her blog, Jirah Merizz. So thank you so much Erin and Jirah for nominating me, you guys are the sweetest 🙂 Tags are super fun and they’re lovely for when I have no ideas of what to post! Anyways, I was thrilled to be nominated, it means so much! ❤️

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Credit the creator (Maggie @ Dreaming of Guatemala)
  • Answer the questions you were asked.
  • Nominate at least five bloggers and inform them of their nomination.
  • Give them ten new questions to answer

Erin’s Q’s:

What are some of your favorite songs to listen to at the moment?

Right now, I’ve been loving listening to old hymns from church.. some of my favorites have been Come thou Fount of Every Blessing, Jesus paid it all, and Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me. They’re just so beautiful and I’ve really been loving them recently!

If you could shift into an animal, what animal would you want to turn into?

I’m going to say the same thing as Erin, a bird! Birds are so graceful (usually anyways ;)) and I love watching them just drifting through the sky and floating around. It would be such a powerful and breathtaking experience to be able to fly like a bird, dipping and swooping!

What is one thing you are currently obsessed with?

Writing letters, journaling, and texting my friends. During quarantine, the thing I miss most has got to be my friends, theyre pretty awesome 🙂 ❤️I’ve been writing quite a lot of letters to my pen-pals and I got some new pen-pals recently from Finland so it’s been really fun to get to know them and start learning more about them! I’ve also been really enjoying journaling, a friend sent me these stickers (on the pic below) and I loved how this page turned out! And I’ve been texting my friends a ton, trying to keep in touch!

If an unstoppable force collides with an immovable force, what happens?

Well. um. I-. I don’t know. But since I read Erin’s post and comments, I learned that the forces would work against each other and eventually come to a stop? I think anyways, let me know if any of you are physics geniuses!

What is your favorite book that you read in 2020 so far?

Hmmm. *tries to think of what I’ve read this year* *fails*

I read The Fault in Our Stars, and loved it as usual but I think I need to recall a book that I read for the FIRST time this year. Okayyy… I recently read The Lovely War and really enjoyed it! Ooohhh I also loved Wait for me, I definitely reccomend both of those!

What is the best piece of advice that you’ve received?

I don’t really get advice from people.. That sounds bad but I can’t really recall when anyone really gives me advice. The most repeated piece of advice that I HAVE heard has gotta be “Trust God’s plan.” I also believe that the advice “Live in the moment”, is one of the most important pieces of advice you could receive! Give me some advice in the comments, I could always use advice 😉

What is the best gift you’ve ever received?

My life? Idk? I’m pretty happy that I happened to be born on this world and the life that God has given me is pretty amazing and I’m so thankful for it. Another one of my favorite gifts has got to be Birkenstocks and takis xD Also getting anything in the mail is such an amazing gift, I love it! Me and my friends have been sending quarantine mail to each other and its so fun!

If you could spend a day with anyone (fictional, alive, or dead), who would you choose and what would you do together?

When I was little I always dreamed about Laura Ingalls Wilder coming alive again and me showing her our modern world. I always thought it would be so cool because she would be super amazed and probably horrified at how far our world has come, I mean we have cars that drive by them selves now and she would be horrified at how scandalous some clothing is 😂 I think it would be really fun to hang out with her though, I love showing people around and yeah, it sounds fun? ( heyyyy maybe I should be like a tour guide or something?? Theres an idea xD)

What is your dream reading space?

Wellllll…. I really love reading in my bed with a fuzzy blanket but I mean a nice little cozy chair like this and some plants would be pretty cool 😉

Picture from Pinterest 🙂

What are your goals (reading or otherwise) for 2020?

Just live a good life. say yes. meet some new people. be kind and try to be the sunshine. grow closer with Jesus. Fill up some journals. Be more active. start driving. get out of my comfort zone. grow my blog. stay friends and maintain relationships. grow relationships. spread the word. be a light. the list goes on and on……

And NOW, onto Jirah’s questions!

If there’s no quarantine, what are you doing right now?

There is a quarantine right now, sadly. I’m getting quite sick of it but I’m enjoying the down time and the excuse to slow down 🙂 IF there was no quarantine, I would be at softball practice, which sounds pretty fun. Although typing this blog post is also quite fun 😉 I honestly would enjoy either but I might pick softball practice over blogging (sorry!!!!!) because I was really looking forward to this season. 😦 Oh well though.

What are some of your favorite Netflix series?

I love AWAE, it’s really the only Netflix I watch bc my mom doesn’t like Netflix but I loved it 🙂 Anne and Gilbert are goals ❤️

How long have you been blogging already?

Let’s see… I’ve been blogging since November so: 5 months now! That’s not that long but it also is quite a while! Thank you guys so much for following along!

What are some of your favorite posts that you’ve written?

Hmmm I really love all my bullet journal posts, and I was quite proud of my latest one which you can read here !

What inspires you to blog?

okay tough one. All my blogger friends inspire me and I was going to link to them all but I realized that I couldn’t possibly link them ALL so yeah, all of you guys inspire me though! ❤️❤️❤️

Would you still write if WordPress never existed?

I think I still would, I would probably just use blogger *hides face* It’s not that bad, ofc I love WordPress because thats where I started but I kind of knew of blogger/blogspot before I knew of WordPress. So yeah, I would hope I still would write!

Describe one goal you’d like to achieve before the year ends.

Grow closer with God. Recently during Quarantine I’ve been really reading the Bible more and I recently started using YouVersion which is awesome! I highly recommend it, you can do all kinds of reading plans, either by yourself or with friends and it’s been really nice 🙂 I’m doing a plan right now called Habits Of Happiness and its really quite amazing!

Would you rather have a cat or a dog?

Dog. I don’t have anything against cats, I just like dogs better?

What is your favorite book?

The Fault in Our Stars. bet u didn’t know that huh? *raises eyebrows* 😂

If you had to change your name, what would it be?

Maybe Madeline, I really like that name. But I also really like my name, so I don’t know if I had the choice to change my name if I would want to!? Would you change your name if you could and what would you change it to?

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

I nominate:

Okay I nominated 8-9ish people, thats enough right? As always, no pressure if you don’t want to or can’t do this, that’s fine! If you do end up doing it, let me know, drop the link in the comments so I can check it out!

My Questions:

  1. Favorite meal?
  2. What’s the first thing you notice about someone?
  3. What was your favorite game as a child?
  4. What is a trend that you hate/hated?
  5. What makes you feel accomplished?
  6. How is quarantine going? or how did it go if we ever get out of it?
  7. What is the highlight or most anticipated thing during your year?
  8. What is the outfit your wearing right now and on a scale of 1-10 how do you rate it?
  9. How many unread emails do you have right now?

Awesome blogger award x2: ft. my sister *hugs each other then grimaces*

Hey guys!!! How are you? I’m good. Hope you all are well with all this COVID-19 stuff going around! Anyways, I was nominated for the awesome blogger award by Ainsley and Eliana (who are literally the sweetest everrrr) so go check out their blogs! They do amazing posts about a wide range of things and I love their blogs!

I was thinking about this tag and I figured reading tags might be kind of boring for you guys, I don’t know? So I figured I would invite my sister, Aubrey, to be featured in this award! Round of applause for her bc she’s cool! *applause* ok… let’s get on to the questions!

Oh! One more thing, I almost forgot the rules xD

The rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Tag the post with the #awesomebloggeraward.
  3. Answer the questions you where asked.
  4. Nominate at lest 5 bloggers and inform them of there nomination.

Ainsley’s question’s:

Sunrises or Sunsets?

my answer: I would say sunsets, although I really love them both. Lately I’ve been really appreciating the sunsets lately and I like how you don’t have to wake up super early to see them and how they’re always different! I say a quote once about how when an artist dies, God let’s them paint the sunset and honestly if that’s true, that’s amazing ❤️ also then, I can’t wait to die and paint the sunset xD

Aubrey’s answer: Probably sunrises. Because I feel like they’re more colorful and I don’t see them all the time. Also because the sun is rising so its bringing a new day ya know?!?

What do you do when your bored?

expectations= I do something with my life and do something productive Reality= I go on my phone and look for something productive to do. Hahaha most of the time when I’m bored, I’ll either read, journal, blog or write letters!

Aubrey’s answer: live life? I don’t know. Ive been trying to do softball and horses or piano? Maybe draw or read a book? I don’t know?!

What’s your favorite band/artist?

my answer: Tough oneeee. I really like Hillsong and Bethel right now but honestly my music taste is all over the place 😂 yeah I can’t pick just one artist….

Aubrey’s answer: Ummmmmmmmm I’m so un-updated. I have no idea actually. Like no idea. I don’t know. Ughhhhhhh. SO THATS MY ANSWER.

Winter or Summer?

my answer: Summer. I like the vibes. And the sun. And the water. But winter is honestly really fun too. I like the snow. And the warm fires and cozy drinks. So yeahhhh

Aubrey’s answer: Um probably summer. The sun is nice and people are sick less and you don’t have school and you can hang out with friends and you can just live life more than you can in winter.

Have you ever gone out of the country?

my answer: sadly, no. I want to travel a ton when I’m older but as of now, I haven’t left the country. I have left my home state though so that’s something, right?!?


Aubrey’s answer: *sigh* no.

What’s you favorite sport?

my answer: Softball. It’s the only sport I’ve ever really played but I love it! Gymnastics, swimming, horseback riding, and volleyball are really fun too! That’s the extent of sports I’ve tried. xD

Aubreys answer: Probably softball. I’ve always wanted to play soccer but I haven’t because softball is the only sport I can play soooo my dreams never can come trueeee.

Biggest pet peeve?

my answer: The scraping of silverware against glass DRIVES ME CRAZY. People that I know always do it just to annoy me and it drives me crazyyyyy. Also imagine putting a fork in your mouth, biting down and slowly pulling the fork out of your mouth *cringes* ewwww I just can’t. That sounds horrible, right?!?

Aubrey’s answer: One of my biggest is when you touch something like a piece of glass and it scrapes it. Like when you grab a glass from the dishwasher and your nails scrape it, it just feels so gross.

Do you like Mac n Cheese with BBQ? *it’s amazing!*

My answer: I’ve never tried it but it doesn’t sound like the worst thing ever? I’m not a huge Mac n cheese fan, or a huge bbq sauce fan so I can’t probably judge it appropriately but it doesn’t sound bad! Has anyone ever tried ranch with grilled cheese? It is literally the bomb.Com! It’s SO good!

Aubrey’s answer: No. I’ve never tried it but I like to stick to more traditional stuff. food.

What’s your favorite art medium?

My answer: I like watercolor! I mess up a lot when I create art and with watercolor I feel like you can mess up and it’ll just look artsy?! xD so yeah my dudes!

Aubrey’s answer: Probably colored pencils or just a pencil. I feel like with pencils you can erase but you cant really with paint.

Can you name one new thing you’ll try while stuck in the house?

My answer: hmmm…well, I am learning to drive! My Dad has an old work van and I’ve been practicing driving it around and backing up so when I go in for my drive test, I can ace it! Woo! xD

Aubrey’s answer: I’ll try to get my room clean? Minamalize? Nothing super big, ummm maybe I will bake something? Nothing big.

And now onto Eliana’s questions!

*Aubrey didn’t do this one because she was busy and I wanted to get this post up 🙂

What is your favorite Bible verse?

My answer: I really like 1 Corinthians 13:1-3!

13 If I speak in the languages of humans and angels but have no love, I have become a reverberating gong or a clashing cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can understand all secrets and every form of knowledge, and if I have absolute faith so as to move mountains but have no love, I am nothing. Even if I give away everything that I have and sacrifice myself,[a] but have no love, I gain nothing.

If you could go anywhere where would it be?

I don’t even know honestly. I want to travel everywhere when I’m older but right now I’ve been “craving” or wanting (xD) to go to Arizona or Hawaii? They both sound really fun and their so pretty!

How many siblings do you have?

I have 4 siblings, with a 5th on the way! My mom is having a baby boy and she’s due in the end of May!

What is your favorite food?

Well, right now, I’m gluten free so I’m kind of craving gluten. But my favorite overall food is Pizza and French fries! And French toast. And sausage. and burgers. I like food a lot though xD

What is your least favorite color?

My favorite is Blueeee 💙 I love all shades of blue :))

edited to say: Ahaha my least favorite color is probably *thinks for a million years* Idk. I like all colors really!

What is your favorite subject in school?

I have been really enjoying drama this year, we’re reading Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew and I thought I would hate it, but its fun! I’m in a class with 3 boys at my co-op and they all read the Shakespeare in accents so thats cool!

City or country?

Countrryyyy. I like small towns and towns. City’s are overwhelming but they can be fun in small doses 🙂

Do you have pets? If so what are they?

Yep! I live on a farm so we have pigs, cows, dogs, chickens, and cats. I was thinking about doing a post about our animals sometime, would you guys like that?

This is Finn, my favorite 😉 ❤️

What do you want to do after you finish school?

Hopefully continue (I want to get a job soon) working at a good job, travel, and enjoy life. I don’t want to go to college but I don’t know where God will lead me yet, so we’ll see!

Do you wear your hair up or down most of the time? 

I wear my hair up 90% of the time. I have super thick hair and it usually drives me crazy when its down so usually its in a ponytail or bun! I have started wearing it down more often though…

And that’s all for this award!!

The Questions:

1.What’s your favourite book?

Ack I can’t pick just one! One that I really loved when I was younger is Cages, and two of my favorites now are The Fault in Our Stars ( ahhhhhh itsss soooooo sadddd I hate/love it) and The Red Umbrella. Definitely read them all, they’re honestly the BEST.

2.What’s your least favourite book?

Hmmmm, I’ve never had a book I HATE, mostly I just find them boring. One that I’ve found boring recently is Billy Budd, Sailor which I had to read for school and I did not enjoy it. No offense to anyone who likes it but it just wasn’t my favorite. like at alllllll. 😂

3.How many books do you have on your physical TBR? (books that you own & need to read)

Let me check 😉 Atm, there’s only one, because I never buy books anymore :(((( I hope to buy more books this year tho! Anywho, the book on my physical tbr is The Baker’s Secret, which I received for Christmas and just never got around to reading. It looks good though and I’m excited to read it soon!

4.What is/was your favourite subject at school?

My favorite subject in school right now is Drama. In drama, we’re reading The Taming of the Shrew which is a play by Shakespeare. I wasn’t very excited about reading it but I’m actually enjoying it a LOT. We’ve been reading the play in class and the boys in my class all do different accents and it makes it super interesting 😃

5.What’s your favourite board game?

I’m basic and I like Life and Clue 😂 There is another board game I really like called Act your Wage! And it’s pretty fun 🙂

6. What’s a stereotype that’s true about you?

Homeschoolers stereotypes. It’s bad 😂 We use essential oils, we’re all shy and we go to co-ops. But we’re really awesome people. Get to know us and u won’t regret it 😉

7.What’s a stereotype that’s not true about you?

I’m a not a wild teenager like the typical stereotype for high schoolers that says they like partying, and being rude, and crazy. I’m very much tame and I usually prefer to talk and just hang out instead of being crazy? Idk, this was a tough question xD

8. Favourite cake flavour?

Probably chocolate. It’s what I grew up with and it’s just good. But not chocolate cake AND chocolate frosting bc that’s too much chocolate. 😂

9.What’s something you’ve always wanted to know more about?

People. I really like learning about people’s lives and just becoming friends with people so I try to overcome my awkwardness and shyness and just go talk to new people 😆 It happens sometimes, I promise 😂

10.Are you good at multitasking?

Ha. Ha. Ha. No. I like to try to be good at it but in all reality I fail epically. To give myself credit, I can multitask some stuff like I can talk on the phone and clean my room but I can’t clean with music without getting distracted by my music 😂

11.Tell us all a joke!

Okayyyyy lets make this a really cringey dad joke k? Hold on imma go search google real quick 😂

Side note: Do you call it supper or Dinner? Idk why I call it supper but yeah, I do 😂 A lot of my friends call it dinner and I like to tease them about it but its funny how some ppl call stuff different names!

Whats UR favorite thing to eat for supper?

Orange Juice. Hands down. IT IS SO GOOD. I always beg my Mom to buy it for me, and then usually all my siblings get to it before me 🤦🏼‍♀️😂

Does anyone else do that!??!? ok guess its just me haha 😂

4. What is your favorite room in your house? Why?

My bedroom. I get in trouble for being in my room a lot but I like having my own space and peace and quiet. Its nice to just be able to chill and read a book without ppl running around all around you. So yeah, I like the vibes in my room a lot, I have lights strung around my walls and it makes it look super cozy and nice :))

If you could become fluent in one language, what would it be?

Hmmmm, probably something basic like French or Spanish. Or maybe ASL? I took a ASL class for like 2 years but I basically only know the alphabet, numbers up to 20 and a couple random signs 😂 Right now I’m learning Latin but it’s sad how you can’t speak Latin necessarily, It’s more for writing books etc.

Three Facts about me:

  • I’ve never watched any Marvel movies but I want to binge watch them all this year 😂 I’ve been told how good they are by a lot of ppl and now I’m convinced.
