Giveaways and Blog Parties!

Lots of my friends are hosting giveaways! Check out these awesome ones: 

Eden at Heirs of Promise is giving away some cute dishcloths she crocheted herself! Aren't they beautiful?


Rachel at Rachel's Blog is giving away three really cute things: jeweled bobby pins, note cards of scripture verses, and an apron she made.



Lindsay at Content in Christ is giving away a handmade bag and apron, both of which are reversible. Aren't they cute?


Eldarwen at Faithful Elven Princess is doing not only a givaway, but also a blog party! She's giving away Ocean Eyes by Owl City.


And here are the questions for her blog party:

1) How old are you? Old enough to think I'm an adult, yet young enough to still want to create fantasies and worlds all my own... :)
 
2) What name do you go by on blogger? Melody.

3) When is your birthday? I'd rather not say the exact date, but it's towards the end of July.

4) If you could live anywhere in the world, besides where you live now, where would it be? I guess it would be kind of cool to live near the ocean, but I really do love where I live now.

5) How did you find out about Blogger? I don't really remember how exactly... I think I was surfing through blogs and all of them were Blogger, so I thought I would start one.

6) Tell us something interesting about yourself: For some reason, though I love to read humorous books (think "At Home in Mitford" by Jan Karen), I never seem to be able to write them.

7) What was your favorite toy when you were little? I had a little reindeer stuffed animal named Pepper that I loved. I still have it, too. :)

8) What is your favorite meal? Have you ever cooked/helped cook that meal? My favorite meal is chicken pot pie, and only homemade. And I'm usually the one who makes it at our house!

9) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I've been asked this question so many times - and I really don't know. I'm pretty fine with my outward appearance, and God is changing and conforming my character to be more like Christ. So I guess I wouldn't change anything!

10) Are you an outside person, or an inside person? I really love the outdoors... but I also love the indoors because it contains my computer and piano. If I really had to chose one over the other, I would pick the outdoors, because I just love God's creation!

11) Are you a mommy's girl, or a daddy's girl? A mixture of both. I would say Mommy's girl in the morning, Daddy's girl in the evening. :)

12) In one word, describe the feeling you get when you stub your toe, after just being told by your parents that you are grounded for the next month: Overwhelmed.

13) Let's say you TP'd your friend's house (for those of you who don't know what TP'd stands for, it means toilet papered. As in, put toilet paper on their trees, cars, house, porch, etc.). If someone asked you why you TP'd your friends house, you would say: Well, in the first place, I would never do that! But if I did, I would say, "So-and-so made me do it!

14) Have you ever gone swimming in deep, dark, dirty water? Deep and dark, yes, but not dirty. The lake we swim at in the summer is actually one of the cleanest lakes in our area. It still can be pretty scary at times, especially if you are out in the middle without any floaties. 

15) Have you ever dreamed about getting ready to leave the house, and forgetting to get your pants on? lol - not exactly, though I have had dreams which were similar. :P

16) Have you ever done something so ridiculous, that you wish you'd never done it? If so, what? Haha so you want me to proclaim my ridiculousness to the world? Actually, I can' really think of something that ridiculous I've done. I bet if I asked my friends, though, they would have a lot to say on this question. ;)

17) Imagine that you saw a purse snatching. What would you do?
a. scream and run away
b. move out of the state/country
c. tackle the purse snatcher to the ground.
d. ignore it, start whistling, and turn the other direction.
 Um... how about none of the above? I would scream "Thief!" and point so others could go chase after the purse-snatcher. Then I would go about my business. :)

18) How many friends do you have on blogger? I'm friends with just about all of my followers. So - about 50 (which is a lot!)

19) What makes blogging so much fun for you? I love being able to share my thoughts, writings, things God's teaching me, triumphs, tough times, and everything in between with all of you! And every time I get a comment, it really makes my day!

20) You're a turtle, who has bet that you can win a race with a rabbit. How does it turn out? Well... though I've never been a turtle, I expect that they can really speed if they need to. So I would say the turtle wins the race. :)

That was fun! I really liked reading your answers, Melody! =D Yeah, we used to swim in a lake at some of our families' house, but now that we have a pool, we don't go to the lake anymore. =) I know what you mean, though! One time I swam waaaay out to a bouy and once I got there I didn't want to come back 'cause I was a little bit freaked out. lol =D

I tagged you! http://thefaithfulelvenprincess.blogspot.com/2010/04/what-should-i-title-this-post-as.html
