Liebster Award!

Yes, it's six in the morning. Some days I'm a night owl and other days I'm an early bird. Today was a bit of both. Plus, I promised I would post today, and I'm not going to be home until late tonight. So here goes!

I've been nominated for the Liebster Award! Thank you, The Secret Ghost Caller, for nominating me. <3

i. Post eleven facts about yourself.
ii. Answer the eleven questions provided by the person who nominated you and then create an eleven-question set for the next group of nominees.
iii. Choose eleven people to nominate and link them in the post.
iv. Let your nominees know they've been tagged - and no tag-backs!
11 Things You Didn't Know About Me:
1. I do Jazzercise.
2. I have a secret love for bluegrass music.
3. Shameless Disney addict! (nerd alert!)
4. I've never been kissed.
5. I just figured out how to use the strikethrough button and I'm probably going to drive people crazy using it every other sentence!
6. I'm not afraid of falling. I'm afraid of landing.
7. Seven is my favorite number. (OK, if you've been reading my blog for a while, you probably did know that one.)
8. I cannot play ping pong, tennis, baseball, golf, pool, or any other game that involves hitting a ball with a stick or paddle.
9. Right now, I have a black mustache painted on my face by a friend. It won't wash off. I tried.
10. I'm in the middle of reading Dicey's Song.
11. I'm currently running on three hours of sleep, so bear with me here!

Okay, TSGC wrote some awesome questions for me to answer. Let's get started!
Chloee's Questions:

1:What's your favorite food? Red Velvet Cake.
2:If you could see a character from a book who would it be? Emily from Emily of New Moon.
3:What's your favorite movie? Peter Pan. I like both versions, but the one with real-life actors is a little better than the original Disney cartoon, if I dare say.
4:What's your favorite place to visit? I've never been west of the Mississippi or east of the Atlantic, so I haven't traveled much. But I do really enjoy my family's trips to Harrisonburg, VA.
5: What's your most embarrassing moment in your life? Oh, good gravy. Do I really have to share this? One if my most embarrassing moments was when I got stuck in the tire swing bridge during Adventure Advance, a game day at my church involving a set of obstacle courses you go through as fast as you can. For the tire swing bridge, six tires were hung from a chain, and you had to cross from one side to the other without touching the ground or the chain. As luck would have it, my giant foot got stuck in the tire, and it took three grown men to yank it out while I just kind of... dangled there. The most embarrassing part? Someone got it all on tape while I hung there screeching in pain.
6:If you could change your name what would it be? Aurora.
7:What place would you want to live in a book? Narnia.
8:Do you want to be a princess or a villain? A villain.
9:What would you do if you were famous? Well, besides adopting every cat in the world, I'd probably try to help end something like child poverty. I'd just do whatever God calls me to.
10: What's your favorite book? That is a cruel question. Umm... The Mysterious Benedict Society.
11: If you were on a deserted island what's the one thing you would bring? A friend. Though I will probably regret that choice if we resort to cannibalism.

Here are my questions!

1. Is there a specific way you eat Oreos?
2. If you could live in any era (say Victorian times, 1930's, 1500's, etc.), what would it be?
3. Why and when did you first start blogging?
4. If you had to eat only one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
5. What is something you have too much of that is taking up too much space?
6. What is the longest time you have gone without sleep?
7. Coffee or tea?
8. If your favorite celebrity sat next to you on a plane, what would you do?
9. What is your favorite song? Least favorite?
10. Describe the funniest thing that's happened to you in the past year.
11. Do you prefer cooking or crafting?

  1. Hey Rebecca Jane! I just realised, or more like found out that you have a blog! We have quite a few things in common, like wanting to adopt every cat in the world, having read Dicey's Song and the Mysterious Benedict Society being one of the few of my favorite books! I also would LOVE to go to Narnia or even the Lord of the Rings places. Both are so beautiful and I love those era's where there is absolutely no worry about electricity, internet or phones. If I could, I would rather live in those era (times) and be happy with doing what I love and be able to talk to animals and fight bad guys :D I'd better stop rambling. And btw, I will do all the questions, but I'm not going to be able to tag anyone, because I don't really follow any blogs. But from now on, I will follow yours!

    1. That's so cool we have so many things in common! I'm definitely glad I'm not the only one who has a desire to adopt all the cats in the world. And permanently live in Narnia. ;P
      That's fine if you just answer the questions. I myself didn't follow many blogs until I joined Bloglovin a few weeks ago!
      Thanks for following, by the way. :)

  2. thanks for nominating me! I think I'll do it on my non-AG blog since I have three other awards that I posted and my viewers are probably getting bored of reading those type of posts. XD

    ~Lydia~ <3

    1. No problemo. I look forward to reading your post! :)

  3. Thank for nominating me Rebecca Jane!

  4. Thanks, Rebecca! Hm . . jazzercize sounds fascinating. And I'm always so happy to find someone who knows Emily of New Moon. :)


Go ahead and drop me a comment-- I appreciate them so much! I try to reply to all comments you leave me as quick as I can, whether it's on my blog or yours.
Rebecca :)
