November 7, 2014

I was nominated by Ladonna at A Dash of Encouragement for the Liebster Award! I only met Ladonna recently, but she has become a fast friend! She posts dashes of encouragement every Tuesday. You should definitely pop over to her blog!

Here's how the Liebster Award works:

    Post 11 random facts about yourself
    Answer 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you
    Nominate bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to do the same
    Let the bloggers you have nominated know they have been nominated

Part One - 11 Random Facts

1. My favorite color is purple.

2. I almost never measure anything when I cook. My Mom despises this habit.

3. I was talking in complete, understandable sentences by the time I was 16 months old. Yes. It's true. This should have clued my Mom in to what the years ahead would hold. (I talk a lot.)

3.  Up until earlier this year, I didn't have any dream destinations outside of the USA. Thanks to Fitzgerald, I've added the French Riviera to my list of places to visit.

4.  2014 was also the year that I realized that I want to be a librarian someday.

5. When I was 13 I gave my go-cart a complete overhaul.

6. I was in 4-H for one year when I was six. I showed a goat and earned the only trophy that is just mine...The trophy was because of my excellent barn duty skills! This is funny for so many reasons.

7. It takes most people a long time to call me Victoria. Kids can't say it. Adults can't remember it. And well meaning people are always trying to shorten it.

8. I almost never play games on the internet (I don't even know what to call them), but Diner Dash and Burger Bash are my games of choice.

9. My favorite arcade game is Ski-Ball.

10.  My favorite toy as a child was a cash register. I had several toy ones, but the real one my Dad let me play with was my favorite.

11. In October, I earned about 750 Swag Bucks.  It's so much easier than I thought! I'm planning to exchange the Swagbucks for Amazon gift cards to use on some of my Christmas shopping. Shameless plug - you should sign up HERE

Part Two - Answer The Questions

1. What is one thing God is teaching you during this season? To KEEP setting my hope in Him.

2. If you could travel any where tomorrow, where would you go and why? This is HARD. I would love to go back to Massachusetts to visit all of my friends there. However, I owe my family in South Carolina a visit first. While I'm there, I would be sure to get together with my blogger friends that live in the area too!

3. What is your favorite Christmas movie? It Happened on 5th Avenue

4. Team Edward or Team Jacob? I never read Twilight...Or saw the movies…Sorry!

5. What are you currently reading? 1 Peter, "The Small Rain" by Madeleine L'Engle, and "The Christmas Cat" by Melody Carlson

6. What is your favorite time of year? SUMMER

7. What is one goal you hope to accomplish this next year? I want to become efficient at using Illustrator.

8. Where and who will you be spending Thanksgiving and Christmas with? My house with my parents and two of my siblings and whatever other friends and family decide to join in on the celebration.

9. What inspired you to start blogging? It was just a new way to keep a record of things. I started in high school and never looked back.

10. Who inspires you the most in life right now? God. He is my everything!

11. Who is your favorite author? Mary Higgins Clark, hands down.

Part Three - Leave Eleven Questions

1. What is your favorite breakfast cereal?

2. What is the last book that you finished? Would you recommend it?

3. What is your DREAM car?

4. What is your favorite thing on the Thanksgiving table?

5. What are your go-to nail polishes for this season?

6. What Scripture do you go back to over and over again?

7. What is your favorite APP?

8. As a blogger, do you plan posts in advance or blog as you go?

9. Growing up, what was your favorite movie?

10. What person from history do you relate to most?

  3. So, I loooved reading more about you--those random facts were so fascinating! I, too, loved Diner Dash (haven't played that game in ages!) and skee-ball as well. I never would have thought to include those as random facts for myself. Girl, you're so original and creative! :)

    And I could totally see you as a librarian! Not in a weird way, but in the "you always recommend the best books" and have a true passion for reading kind of way!

  4. Ah, I love this!! I never measure anything when I cook either…it works out well a lot of the time, but sometimes…not so much ;-) And I get the name shortening thing…it weirds me out so much when people I don't really know call me "Jayd" haha.

  5. Aw! I never knew you wanted to be a librarian one day. That's so neat! I think that would be such a fun, peaceful job. :)


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
