Award Season!

Well, it's award season! I have a couple of awards and tags that have piled up in my drafts - so here they all are! First up is the beautiful blogger award:

I was awarded this by Eden at Heirs of Promise. Thanks Eden! :)

As a part of the award, I have to write seven random things about myself. So here goes:

1. I have a very hard time making decisions.

2. I like peanut butter, though we hardly ever buy it. :(

3. I love "older" Christian music artists such as Twila Paris, Michael Card, and Keith Green.

4. Reading or writing a well-written allegory is one of the best feelings in the world for me.

5. I love doing art in all different mediums (though I've never used acrylics)

6. I'm an "edit as I think" person (which sometimes makes it very hard to write!)

7. A year ago today, I would never have imagined myself blogging. But I'm so happy that I started, otherwise I would have never have met all of you. :D

I award:
Celebrilomiel at Melodies of the Miscellaneous 
Amber at Taking Life One Step at a Time
Emily at Practically Pink
Lindsay at Content in Christ
Miss Raquel at God's Daughter


 This one I received from Memzie. Thank-you so much! :)

If you are tagged:
1. Post about the tag
2. Pick 10 bloggers who deserve this award
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 

1: Apples, Oranges or Bananas? Apples. I like them any season of the year! 

2: How many siblings do you have? Two younger brothers 


3: How old are you? Well I don't think I've said my exact age yet on this blog... so I will just say old enough to be called an adult, and young enough to still feel like a kid. ;)


4: Do you live on a: I live basically in the woods. :)  prairie, woodland, swamp, city or other?
5: Scissors or glue? Well, I don't like glue...


6: Describe your dream house. I like a lot of different styles of houses, actually. I would like a big porch and lots of property with woods and a river/stream/pond. After all, it's the outside which really makes a house (in my opinion) ;)


7: Is your room clean? Um... it's relatively clean (which means I think it's clean and my mom doesn't). :P


8: If you could be a movie character for a day, who would you be? Oh wouldn't that be amazing! I'd love to be Elizabeth from Pride & Prejudice. 

9: Italy, Greece, France, Spain or England? England, because I could see all the old buildings and art and stuff.

10: What denomination are you? Non-denominational :)

11: Do you sleep with a stuffed toy (BE HONEST!!!!) No - but I do have a few at the end of my bed.

12: Gum, chocolate, or jelly beans? Are you kidding me? Gum & jelly beans have nothing on chocolate!

13: What is your favorite book? I have too many favorites. :P

14: Favorite ice cream flavor? Moose Tracks

15: If you had to eat one type of food for two weeks, what would that food be? Oh wow... I don't think I could do that. I guess maybe

16: What is your favorite Olympic sport? Ice skating.

17: If you woke up and discovered that you had turned into Miley Cyrus for the day, what would you do? Um... freak out because I'd like to continue being myself, thank you very much. ;)

18: Describe yourself in three words. Creative. Caring. Inspired. (I tried to think of three C words, but I couldn't)

19: What do you hate? All the problems that sin has caused in this world. :(

20: If Elmo came into your room with a gun, what would you do? This is a random and strange question. I think I shall chose not to answer! ;)

Now, I award:
Eldarwen at The Faithful Elven Princess
Richelle at Richellephant
Bekah at The Word Crafter
Lizzie at Lizzie's Library
Stephanie at Stephanie's Saga
Nicole at Psalm 27:14

Thank you so much for the award!

My father loves peanut-butter (and as Daddy is, so are his children), so I can't imagine not having it a lot. :) The other day we were completely out and it was desolation.
Your dream house sounds nice--yard at least. :)

I awarded you. *checks blog* Oh wait, I haven't awarded you... yet. You'll have to wait for Monday. :)

Your welcome! Glad you all love the awards! It's so much fun to do these things & spread a little love. :)

Merriette: Ah, nice that you have your dad on your side (so you can have peanut butter). Unfortunately it's only the kids in my family who like it. :P I will look forward to Monday when I can see the award! ;)

Evergreena: Thanks! Yes, my dream house is pretty much the same as what I'm living in now - beautiful woodsy yard with a river running through it and plenty of space to play with friends! For me, it doesn't matter what the inside of the house is like as long as the outside is nice.

Blessings to all of you!
