screen-shot-2019-02-26-at-5.42.45-pm.png

I was recently nominated by Ezra to do this awesome award! Thank you so much, Ezra! Be sure to go check out his blog. It’s super neat!

Let’s go!

So, the rules are:

  1. Put the award logo on your blog
  2. Answer the 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you
  3. Thank the person who nominated you and links to their blog(s)
  4. Nominate any number of bloggers and link to their blog(s)
  5. Come up with seven questions for the people who nominated you

Onward!

Ezra’s questions…

  1. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Hmm… Well, I love America, so I would probably want to explore a little more of it, but internationally I’d say Scotland/England or Switzerland(:

2. What is your favorite genre of music?

Ooh. Well, I like a lot of different types. I would definitely say Christian (such as Chris Tomlin, Bethel, Switchfoot, etc.), Rock (Like the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, and others), and Indie/Folk (Like Ingrid Michaelson, Sarah Bareilles, and others).

3. What is your favorite book series?

Ahhh!!😱 SO HARD! I LOOOVE the Chronicles of Narnia, the Little House series, and the Mysterious Benedict Society. (If you call that a series(: )

4. Why did you decide to start blogging?

Hmm. Well, A long time ago when I was much younger I had a blog about American Girl dolls called Dollventuresblog. In 2016, I got locked out (for some odd reason) and couldn’t get back in. After taking a long break from blogging and playing with my dolls, I wanted to start it up again. Then I started theJunebugblog in September 2017(: I wanted to show the things I was interested in and inspire folks!

5. What is your least favorite food?

Hmm. I don’t really know! I like most foods. Maybe Cajun food? I know that sounds strange, but the past few times I’ve had it, it wasn’t the most enjoyable! 🤪

6. What’s the strangest food you’ve ever eaten?

Mexican candy. Definitely. It was supposed to be edible paper with this gel frosting pen that you can use to write on it. Then you eat it.🤢 It was, *ahem* interesting.

7. What’s your favorite color? 

I like dusty blue, Blush pink and Turquoise(:

That’s it for the questions. Those were fun! Much thanks to you, Ezra!

Now my nominees are (Linking to their most recent post so it notifies them):

Sydney

Clara

Rosy

Lillian

Ani

Rhi

Olivia

And my questions:

  1. Would you prefer chocolate or vanilla?
  2. Where’s the most interesting place you’ve been to?
  3. Do you prefer reading or writing?
  4. What is your dream job?
  5. Do you say “y’all” or “you all?”
  6. What’s your favorite season?
  7. If you could have any natural ability (such as being a math major at 12, or being a pianist by ear, or an amazing baker), what would it be?

Thank you smooch for reading! If you would like to do this award and I didn’t nominate you, feel free to do so!

I hope you’re having a wonderful day!

Also: There is an online race going on right now. The registry closes on March 25th. It is called “Spring100” and it is for runners and walker to run or walk 100 intentional (not just from your couch to the fridge to get a snack!) miles between now and June 21st. This is my first year doing it, and I’m excited! It’s totally free. Click here if you’re interested! I will be planning to post a little bit of my progress on the way. I am looking forward to it!

Awesome Blogger Award

Hello, Friends!

Have you all been inside by a fire in this terribly rainy weather? It’s been raining here for 3 days and (so says the weather people) doesn’t plan to stop until Monday!?!

Is it raining where you live?

Lydia kindly nominated me for this award, and I’m excited to do it(: Thanks much, Lydia!

Okay, let’s get started! *rubs hands together excitedly* 😄

So, the rules are:

Thank the person/blogger who nominated you

Tag your post with #awesomebloggeraward                                                                 

Answer all the questions given to you

Nominate at least 5 bloggers and inform them of their nomination                           

Give them 10 new questions to answer

Okay! Let’s go.

1. Out of the 5 senses, which is your favorite? Oh dear. Well, I do love my sight dearly, but speaking and hearing come close behind. (But I do like the others, too😄)

2. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? Oh Nooo! Is there really only one flavor that has to be your favorite?! Hehe. Well, I love cookies and cream. And chocolate. And turtle pecan, to list a few(:

3. What is your favorite day of the week? Hmm… Well, I really like Fridays in the Spring/Summer because of yard sales, but then I like Wednesdays because that’s our busiest day, but mainly because that day combines many of my favorite things; Piano, cross-country (well, more of just running), seeing friends, etc.

4. Out of the 4 taste buds, which is your favorite? Hmm.. This question was a little confusing, but I think I understand. I would say sweet is first, then salty😄

5. What is your favorite restaurant? Chipotle. (or Chick-fil-a!)

6. Where is the best place you’ve been on vacation? Well, I’ve only been to New York City once, and i enjoyed that, but other than that I’d say Destin, Florida(:

7. What is your favorite school subject? Hmm.. There are so many! I like language arts. (which includes reading and writing for me😄)

8. What is your favorite movie? We recently watched “War Room,” and I really liked it.

9. What is your favorite type of transportation? Well, I guess I’d have to say car, because I’ve never been on a plane, and one time I rode on the Marta bus, but It really wasn’t my favorite😆

10. What is your favorite candy? Heeheeehee. 😏 Chocolate. Anything chocolate. (: See my “About.” 

That was fun! Those were fun to answer(:

Now I nominate…
