Questions and Answers
What is your perfect ice cream sundae? – This is probably the most interesting question that I’ve ever been asked but my perfect ice cream sundae would include sprinkles, warm cookie bits, and vanilla ice cream.
Who has been the most influential person in your life? – I know this sounds cliche but, the most influential person in my life is God. He has been the One who shaped me into the person I am today! When I became a Christian, my life took an 180-degree turn. God love and mercy has influenced me to be a more loving, hard-working person.
Would you rather it be really hot, or really cold? – I would rather be really cold than to be really hot. Just think about it; if you’re cold you can always put on scarfs, fuzzy socks, and hats, but if you’re hot, you can’t put on anything to cool you down.
When was the last time it snowed? – It snowed last Friday! It was SO pretty!
What was the last movie you saw?– The last movie I saw was the 2007 version of Nancy Drew. I remember watching this movie when I was younger. I liked it then, and I still like it now!
Where would you go on a dream vacation? – I would love to go to London, England for a couple of weeks! There are so many places to visit there and in England in general.

Who is your role model/someone you look up to and why? ~ My aunt is my role model. She is a writer like me and is always encouraging. I hope to be like her someday.
If you had to live off of one food what food would you choose and why? ~ Potatoes. Because you can make them lots of different ways. :)
Why do you have a blog? ~ I love writing and have always dreamed of having a blog. When my friends started making blogs, I thought I should jump on the bandwagon too!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? ~ Let’s see. Hopefully I will have traveled a bit more by then. Have a job and be continuing my studies at a college or university, preferably near home. And of course, I’ll still be blogging.
What is/are your favorite book(s) and why? ~ My favorite books are the Gallagher Girl series by Ally Carter. I love her writing. I felt that the characters were really relatable but still interesting enough to keep me reading. And the plot twists were perfect! I also love the first three books in The Selection series. They were sweet and simple.
Biggest fear and why? ~ My biggest fear is losing my family. They keep me going and help me grow more in Christ. Without them, I would be very lost.
What makes you smile? ~ New candles, clean sheets, spring mornings, and a blank canvas along with 50 others things which you can read here.
Have people ever told you that you’re beautiful? (btw you definitely are) ~ Haha aw! Thanks! Yes, lots of my former teachers have told me that I’m beautiful as well as my parents’s friends. But of course they always say that so. :)
Do you have any pets? If so what are they? ~ I have one family dog. He is a golden retriever lab and he’s great. I also have two black and white guinea pigs. Technically they are my sisters’s but I am close to them as well. :)
Favorite childhood memory? ~ One of my favorite childhood memories is waking up early on summer mornings to walk the dog with my mom or play with the Barbie house. I also loved building forts out of cardboard boxes and sheets. That was a lot of fun.
Coming up with random facts about me is difficult. ;)
My favorite mugs are the ones with the great stories.
Chronicles of the Kings by Lynn Austin is a great series. I highly recommend; it’s one of my favorites.
Iceskating is fun!
Falling and breaking your tailbone while iceskating? Not fun.
I don’t understand how people can paint so perfectly with watercolor! Every time I try it messes all up but I try.
I love avocados.
The stars are the most beautiful things in the world. I could spend hours just looking at them.

Give your nominees 11 new questions to answer.
When you aren’t blogging, you are… doing homework, reading, or playing piano.
Where do you find inspiration for your blog posts? I try to blog about things that I would want to read myself. Sometimes I get my ideas from other bloggers or friends.
If you were to move far away from where you currently live, what are some things you’d miss? Well, I would miss my family and friends. I would also miss the wonderful weather and all of the restaurants around my neighborhood. I would miss the birds chirping outside of my window every morning and the friendliness of my neighbors. There’s so much to love!
Do you have any plans for the summer? Yes, I’m volunteering at my church’s VBS and then hopefully getting a job somewhere. :) I’ll be traveling a bit with my family so that’ll be fun too. I also have a Summer Bucket list that I want to complete (which you can find here).
When you were a kid, what did you aspire to be? When I was younger, I really wanted to be a teacher. I had amazing teachers in elementary school (I still have great teachers) and they inspired me to be that teacher for other students.
What is your drink of choice when you’re at a restaurant? I typically go with water or ice tea. Sometimes I’ll have a Coke. It depends on what I’m having and where I am.
Do you speak any other languages? I speak a bit of French, Spanish, and Dutch. I’m still learning but hopefully I’ll be able to speak one of those languages fluently.
What is your favorite cuisine to cook and/or eat? My mom’s cooking! Haha but I guess my favorite would be Mexican food. Yum! :)
Are you a reader? If so, what is your favorite book? I would definitely consider myself a reader. My absolute favorite book is the first from the Gallagher Girl Series by Ally Carter but I also love Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
What is something fun that you’ve done recently? Today I went out with my mom to Panera Bread and had lunch. That was pretty fun! And then I came home and had a dance party :D
What do you do/where do you go to relax? When I want to relax, I either play piano or bake.
