Beautiful Blog Award

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

It seems I am being showered with blogger awards this month!  Thanks to Paige at Sunday Best and All the Rest for the Beautiful Blog Award.  Here are my answers to Paige's questions:

1. How would you describe your personal style?
I prefer a slightly classic style.

2. What was your first pet?
An orange and white cat named Bebe.

3. What is your ancestry (e.g. German, Italian)?
Scot, Irish, and Thai.

4. Dill pickles or sweet pickles ;) ?

5. What Bible character do you relate to the most (it can be character, life experiences, or anything like that)?
Deborah. The Lord was with her and gave her the wisdom to judge Israel. She was unafraid to speak the word of God, and she was brave enough to live it. She not only told the Israelites to fight for their freedom; she herself went out with the army. I pray that the Lord gives me the boldness and strength to be a woman like Deborah and to complete the purpose He has for my life.

6. What is the first favorite scripture verse that comes to your mind?
Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the heathen. I will be exalted in the earth.”

7. Do you have any food allergies?

8. You would be really excited if you woke up tomorrow morning to the smell of ____ cooking.

9. What are you looking forward to this summer?
Teaching chess camp, celebrating my 20th birthday, gardening, and much more!

10. What is one thing you've learned from blogging?
Blogging helps me stay on track with writing regularly.

Many of my blogging friends have already been nominated for multiple awards, and I didn't want to overwhelm them with questions, so I didn't pass on the last award.  But since, I've thought of a few of my favorite talented bloggers whom I don't believe have been nominated yet (below).

If you are nominated for the award and would *like* to participate, please answer the questions below;
 then nominate your own list of  up to 10 bloggers  for the award, and ask them 10 questions.
My nominees are:
Megan at Crazy Frazys
Mary at Mary's Place
And if anyone else would like to answer the questions, consider yourself nominated.

My questions are:
1. If you could have an expenses-paid vacation to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
2. What would you like to accomplish by the end of 2014?
3.  What are a few of your favorite quotes?
4.  What Bible character do you relate to the most, and why?
5.  What is your dream car?
6.  Are you a morning person or night owl?
8.  Do you have a favorite plant or flower?
9.  What are some of your favorite foods?
10. What cause(s) are you most opinionated about?
11. What is the best advice on life you can give in up to 3 sentences?
