Liebster Award… Again!!!

Standard

830390_456edbeebfbd470780619559ee402284~mv2-min

I don’t know about you, but I like doing tags enough to love doing this one twice! Besides,  it’s new questions to answer! 🙂 So, thanks Amie, for tagging me!

Here are the rules

1. Thank the blog that nominated you for the award
2. Answer the questions they gave you
3. Give 11 fun facts about yourself
4. Nominate 11 other bloggers for the award, and give them 11 questions to answer

So, here are Amie’s questions, and my answers. 😀

History book or Science book?  Why?

I’d say history book. It’s just really fun learning about… Um, history. But science is cool too…

What is better, having to color all day, or having to wash dishes all day?

Ooh. Ow. Hm. That’s hard. I suppose color all day. ONLY IF IT’S AN ADULT COLORING BOOK! If it’s not, then I’d say wash dishes. :O

Do you use caps lock often?

NO, NOT PARTICULARLY. THOUGH I DO SOMETIMES. I’M DOING IT RIGHT NOW. (IF YOU HADN’T NOTICED…)

Lace, ruffles, or camouflage?

Definitely camouflage. 😀 I like wearing it. 😉

What is you opinion on the all time classic, Pride and Prejudice? 36677620

Do I have to have an opinion??? Especially cuz I haven’t actually read it. But I have read Presumption and Partiality by my friend Rebekah Jones.

Botany or astronomy?

Astronomy, for sure!!!

If you had to choose a broken finger, or a broken toe, which would you chose?

Yikes. Um, neither…. But since I have to choose… Probably a broken toe.

What is your favorite hair color?

My hair color- RED! Red hair is the best! 😀

Do you enjoy crafting or destroying better?

Crafting!!!

What is your favorite kind of tape?

Scotch tape has always been a life saver for me, and washi tape is super fun to use. I’d say those two are my favorites.

Lastly, if you knew some horrid event was about to happen in the near future, how would you go about warning people?

Hm… I’d probably post it on my blog, email all my contacts, and ask my mom and dad to post about it on Facebook… Actually I’d probably just tell my parents and let them deal with it… ;P

And now for some 11 random fun facts about me. I’ll try not to overlap on the facts I wrote last time

  1. Right now, I am listening to He’s a Pirate from Pirates of the Caribbean. (If you haven’t ever heard of that, go look it up. It’s SOOO good!!! I am only recommending the song, not the movie!)
  2. I am 5′ 7” 3/4 tall.
  3. Right now I am wearing a blue and white floral dress that my friend made. 😀 ❤
  4. I slept outside in a hammock for the first time last month with a friend. (The same friend in #3!)
  5. I love doing my sister’s hair.
  6. I am always listening to music… (Well, almost… ;))
  7. I have lived in 9 different houses in my life.
  8. My birthday is on Thanksgiving this year, and I’m turning 15! 😀
  9. I am having a hard time thinking of more facts…
  10. I always put a LOT of salt in my food. (Hey, salt goes in EVERYTHING, right?)
  11. I enjoy journaling. But not just plain old, write everything down journaling… More like scrapbook, or smashbook journaling!

And now… Time to brainstorm about who to nominate. (All of which, have probably already been nominated at one point or another…) Don’t feel pressured to do this, just cuz I nominated you!!! 🙂

  1. Gaby H.

2. Elijah H. 

3. Amie (Right back at you, girl! ;P)

4. Laura (From Flowers in my Basket)

My questions for you…

  1. How did you pick your blog’s name? (If you have a blog.)
  2. Describe yourself in three words
  3. Now, ask a family member to describe you in three words and see what the difference is!
  4. What your favorite blog post you’ve written?

  8. How many of the U.S. states have you been to?

Today is National Love Your Red Hair Day!

Standard

Yesterday, a friend wrote in her blog post that November 5 was national Love Your Red Hair Day. I was super excited about that, since, as you probably know, I’m a red head! =)

To celebrate, I will be posting some fun facts about red heads. Some of them are true, some of them might just be a myth, but it’s fun to read them anyway. 😀 😉

  1. Bees are more attracted to red heads than any other hair color. I think I believe this one! It seems like there are constantly bees circling around my head… (Well, maybe not quite constantly…!) 232323232fp533-7>nu=3266>3-9>;;2>WSNRCG=323877<5-8763nu0mrj
  2. Redheads actually have less hair than other colors of hair. According to research on an average, brunettes have 140,000 strands of hair; blondes have 110,000 strands of hair and redheads have about 90,000. But red hair is thicker than any other hair color, so it looks just as full.

  3. People with red hair are more sensitive to pain. 2018-10-14-5
  4. The highest population of red-heads is in Scotland (13%), followed by Ireland(10%). Worldwide, only about 2% of the population has red hair! Rosy and Philip
  5. Red head are more likely to be left handed. Well, I’m right handed (though I am left eye dominant!), but my red-headed brother is left handed. 2017-11-22 21.28.56
  6. Red hair hair and blue eyes are a very rare combination. Wow, I have red hair and blue eyes!!! Well, sometimes my eyes are greenish, and sometimes they are hazel too, depending on what I’m wearing. But they’re usually blue! 😀

    My adorable, red headed, blue eyed, (and messy faced!) brother Philip! ❤

  7. According to some studies, redheads have more sensitive teeth. Redheads also bruise easily than those who have any other hair color. 83bacf8d-c50c-45b6-943e-6b32011e5bb4

    My fellow red head and I

    Aaaaaannnnd, that’s about it. 😀 I am super thankful to God for giving my my red hair. =) Oh, and a happy Love Your Red Hair Day to all my awesome red headed friends!

Let’s Talk

Do you have red hair. If not what color hair do you have?

Hello September Tag

Standard

A couple months ago, my dear friend Liberty tagged me for this super cool tag. Thank you Liberty! (Ya’ll can just head on over to Liberty’s blog, and check out her awesome answers to this tag!)

I am so sorry that it took me a little while to get around to this. By now, we are saying hello to November! (Shocking, I know… It feels like 2018 should still be brand new…)

Screen Shot 2018-10-31 at 11.46.12 AM

So, here are the rules.

Rules:
~Please copy the questions below, answer them, and then write out your new questions (or you can even copy these) for the people you nominate below your answered questions.
~Please nominate at least three bloggers, but try to avoid ones that you know have already been tagged.
~Lastly, include these guidelines in your post, and use the tag picture!

Liberty’s Questions

What’s your favorite thing to do in the Fall? 

Hmmm… I like to take pictures of all the fall-y looking things. And it’s also super fun to curl up in bed, all warm and cozy, with a book… 😀

Do you prefer sparkling apple cider, or hot apple cider? 

That’s hard… I like them both a lot… But, I guess I’d have to say I’d prefer the sparkling apple cider! Yum!

What are you looking forward to most about this Fall? 

Probably the three person birthday party we are doing in November. My sister Gracie, brother Philip, and I all have birthdays within a 12 day radios, so we are celebrating them together. 🙂

Does your family have any birthdays this Fall(you don’t have to be descriptive)?

Yup! As I mentioned before, our family has three birthdays in November! (I’m gonna be 15!!! 👏😎🎊🎁🎉) Ahem…

Sweater or hoodie?

I’m pretty sure I’d say hoodie, though I haven’t completely chosen which is my definite favorite yet.

Cookies or pie? 

It really depends on which kind of cookie, and which kind of pie. But probably pie!

What’s your favorite type of pie?

I’d say Pumpkin!!! 😀 ❤ But I also love apple pie, cherry pie, pecan pie, meat pie, and just about any other kind of pie… xD

Well, that’s it! I’m not going to tag anyone, since… well… this is a Hello September tag, and September was a while ago… But you guys can totally feel free to copy and paste the above questions, and answer them in the comments. In fact, I’d really love to see your answers!

Thanks for reading, and thanks again, Liberty, for tagging!

I’m Back!!!

Standard
I’m Back!!!

So, we’re finally back from our two week “furlough”. 😀 We had an awesome time catching up with friends and family. In some ways, it seems like we were gone for such a long time, and in other ways it seemed so short. But, we’re definitely very happy to be home again. 🙂 All in all, we drove over 3,500 miles!!! :O It was a looooooooong drive, but worth it! 😀 To help pass the time we listened to Lamplighter Theater and Jonathan Park.

Here are some highlights of our trip.

Arizona and Family Camp

Kansas

After Arizona, we drove up to Colorado for a couple days to spend time with my grandparents. ❤ And then we drove to Kansas, and stayed at the Cook Family’s house. They were so extremely hospitable to us!!! (After all, we are 11 people…:P ) We had so much fun with them!!! 😀 Playing flashlight tag and kick the kick the can, boating on the pond, and going to the zoo… It was a BLAST!! 😀

I am planing on making a video about the whole trip, as well, though it may take a while until it’s finished. I have a few other videos I need to make first for my Mom, and they need to be a priority. 🙂
