2 Sweet Awards!

Happy Saturday, girls! =)
I've received 2 sweet awards this week!
The 1st is from the lovely Jane over at "Novel Pretender!" If you haven't you should definitely go on over & visit her fun blog - she's got an adorable t-shirt shrug (+ the tutorial she used to make it) on her blog right now!

I'm passing this oh-so-beautiful award on to 3 beautiful bloggers!

Faithngracegirl (AKA: Moe=) - "Helping At Home"

Ashley Nicole - "Bramblewood Fashion"

Grace - "Grace's Garden Walk" & "From the Desk Drawer of a Young Writer"

(I think the rules for this one are pass it on to 3. That's what Jane did.=)


The 2nd award is from the wonderfully bookish Shaynie over at "The Book Blog!" She is one major reading machine! =) Looking for a good read? Head on over to Shaynie's blog to read all her reviews (& yes, she's read ALL those books=)!


If you are tagged:
1. Post about the tag.
2. Pick 10 bloggers who deserve this award.
(I'm with Shaynie on this, I think I'll pick 5, so those I tag/award can pick some folks, too. Hope that's okay! If I tag/award you, feel free to pick 5 or so, too.=)

3. Leave a comment on the blogs of the people you tagged letting them know they were awarded.
4. Answer the questions along with your post.
(Omit questions you don't want to answer - I'm all for simplicity!)

1: Apples, Oranges or Bananas? Oh, I’ll say bananas.

2: How many siblings do you have? I have 2 older sisters.

3: How old are you? What kind of a question is that to ask a lady? =) Just kidding! I’m in my early 20s.

4: Do you live on a prairie, woodland, swamp, city or other? I’m a city girl…who loves nature (just in case you wanted to know=).

5: Scissors or glue? Um, slightly strange question, but I’ll say scissors. I love to cut pics out for collages!

6: Describe your dream house. A cute little crafty cottage featuring a window seat, Dutch door, mini balcony, loft, spiral staircase, library, garden – okay, maybe it’s not that “little” of an abode - & tree house in the backyard.

7: Is your room clean? No. Um, mmm…no. You just don’t want to go there! I’m sorry to say it’s quite bad right now.

8: If you could be a movie character for a day, who would you be? I’d say, Ariel of “Little Mermaid” fame. Yes, I’d love to be “under the sea!”

9: Italy, Greece, France, Spain or England? England! A couple or so years ago I went to Scotland for a week by myself (the lovely area right above England)! I had never been on a plane, I didn’t know a soul, & wasn’t with a tour group. Crazy, right? But I loved it! Sadly, I didn’t make it down to England, though, so I’d love to go back & see the jolly old land of the Queen Mum!

10: What denomination are you? (independent) Christian Church (non-denominational)

11: Do you sleep with a stuffed toy (BE HONEST!)? When I was little, yes. It would be very rare if I did today, though.

12: Gum, chocolate, or jelly beans? Chocolate, most definitely! =)

13: What is your favorite book? I hate questions like these, cause I hate to choose! Well, of course, the Bible is the most important book ever & a great gift from God – so I’d have to go with that! My favorite book in the Bible is Romans.

14: Favorite ice cream flavor? Do I really have to choose (this is another one of those questions I hate)? I say it depends somewhat on my mood, but I love cookies & cream!

15: If you had to eat one type of food for two weeks, what would that food be? Pasta! Mmmm! =)

16: What is your favorite Olympic sport? Figure Skating

17: If you woke up and discovered that you had turned into Miley Cyrus for the day, what would you do? Another curious question! Well, I know some of you are going to be like “What?” – but I’d help myself to some of her (excuse me, my=) Miley Cyrus/Max Azria clothing samples (you know, the line she does for Walmart). I know, I know…but some of those clothes are darn right cute. Yes, I said it! =) Then, I’d go to DisneyWorld…ride some rides & sign some autographs! =)

18: Describe yourself in three words. Christian, Creative, Thoughtful

19: What chore do you hate? Cleaning the above said disaster zone which is my bedroom.

20: If Elmo came into your room with a gun, what would you do? What? Okay, thinking fast, I’d jump on him from behind & tickle him till he surrendered his weapon. Then, I’d escort him to Sesame Street Maximum Security Prison…& wait for a call from my lawyer (Mr. O. Grouch) – because you know, there’s a law against tickling monsters…something about them being an endangered species, or something.

I present this award to these 5 "pure in heart" gals!

Jenna - "Where the Heart Remains"

Ileigh Jean - "A Certain Slant of Light"

Heather - "A Hopeful Romantic"

Bridget - "Gonna Take a Ride Across the Moon"

Josie - "Hillbilly Chronicles"

Lots of Love From Your Sis in Christ,
