Randomness Award

Randomness AwardAbove is the little award picture I made cause I love random things!

Hey guys! So to go along with Wednesday’s Random post I thought I’d do this award now! Jesse from The Crazy Life of Jesse nominated me for this fun Randomness Award!! Thanks so much, Jesse!!! I’m super excited! 

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you. 
  2. Then you gotta answer the questions that the person who nominated you… asked.
  3. Then you must nominate 5 people and ask them 10 questions.

 

Here are the questions…

1. Have you ever played a sport? Not on a team but my family plays basketball once in a while. Even though my parents used to play or do sports we’re not much for sports in my family 🙂

2. What’s your favorite movie? Either Beyond the Mask or McFarland USA

3. If you had to choose one thing to do for eternity what would it be? Hmm…that’s a really tough one! I guess either sing or mow (totally different I know)!

4. What is BY FAR the best book writer in your opinion? Jaye L. Knight

5. If you could own ANYTHING in the world what would it be? Probably make a cure for cancer or invent a drip pan for your stove so that when your cake overflows you don’t have to turn off the stove to clean it!

6. If you went to another planet and found an alien what would be your first thought? Wow! My teachers were wrong all along! I knew it! *evil laugh* 

7. What’s your least favorite movie? Appalachian Trail we had to watch it once when the internet kept cutting out…it made the movie worse!

8. If you knew you were going to die in a week unless you went back in time to prevent it what would you do? No cause that would change life’s other events and plus it’d be super weird! I mean when it’s time to die there’s no stopping it (don’t take this the wrong way guys)!

9. Why do you love to blog? I really love being able to share things with other people and hear what they think of them!

10. And last, do you personally think that video games “rot the brain”? So we aren’t a huge video game family…even though I’m not against them I don’t like when they have a lot of violence and killing in them.

Random Post!

Hey guys! So to make it easier for you all to understand why this post is so random and late I’ll give you a recap of my day!

Around 9 I took about a 7-mile walk (which was insane)!!! After getting home around 12 I crashed and took a short nap. Since I’m done with school I thought I’d watch a few Studio C videos but for unknown reasons, my computer crashed 8 times (I counted) so we called the “help line” they were very helpful but they couldn’t fix it so now we might have to get a new hard drive put in. So moral to the story…don’t use computers use rocks (jk)!! 

I have two pictures to share as well (I had more… 😦

 

 

And to make it even more random…For Memorial Day I made a cake that was supposed to look like an American flag on the inside…Let me know in the comments if it does!

 

Okay, now for an update about Winnie! She is now about 31 pounds and growing faster and faster! She’s graduated from sleeping in her cage all night to sleeping in my room with her cage door open so she can lay wherever she wants but she usually likes sleeping in her cage anyway.

She went with us on Memorial Day but got scared when the trumpet player was warming up so we went on a little walk during that part of the service.

Another exciting accomplishment for her is that she went on that 7-mile walk today and wasn’t tired in the least! Also right now I’m working on applying for her to be a Therapy Dog (which surprisingly doesn’t need any training…I mean she does need the basics)! 

Also some sad bit of news…if her legs don’t stop growing soon she’ll be top heavy! It’s so cute!!!!! She also just got a new toy…so far it has lost both ears and it’s tail but is still hanging in there!

So guys…that’s all the random news I have to share! See you all Saturday 🙂

 

God Bless America – Video

Hey guys! As I mentioned on Saturday…I would share the video of us singing God Bless America! So here it is guys! If you’re wondering why I walk across the room in the beginning it’s I had forgotten the words so we had to start over!

 

Photos from today!

Memorial Day Weekend!

Happy Memorial Day weekend guys! If I was asked what is one of my favorite holidays, I’d say Memorial Day. It’s amazing! I love spending time with my family and going to this awesome small little church where we sing old hymns, replace the old flag, and hear the cannons and guns salute. It’s…truly an amazing day. But what really makes it emotional for me is knowing that we’re honoring the men and women who died for me and my freedom.

My dad’s military photos:

So this year my sister and I are singing God Bless America. The last few years I sang the Star Spangled Banner but this year I wanted to change it up! Actually, I’m hoping to have someone film it so I can share it with you all! 

 

Anyways just wanted to wish you all a Happy Memorial Day! 

What does your family do for Memorial Day? Let’s chat in the comments!

Hey guys! Beautiful Things is having a giveaway!!! Go check it out!!!!

Good morning all! Today is the day the giveaway begins! As if I needed to tell you. 🙂 So what are we celebrating you may ask…Three things. First of all, Memorial Day! Unlike the First of July which celebrates our independence, this day is for celebrating the men and women that have served and protected […]

Interview with AK!!

Welcome back, everyone! Today I’m here with an interview with Audrey Kate (AK)! I’m super excited about this interview so let’s get started! My questions are in bold!

img_9888

1. Hi Audrey Kate…AK! Can you please tell us a little bit about yourself? (include a picture if you would like). 
Hi there! Well, first off, my name is Audrey Kate, but once people get to know me, it’s not long before I’m called AK! I am a daughter of the King, the one true God. I have one brother, and a puppy, and a lawnmower (well, that’s actually my Dad’s) that I love. 
I spend lots of time outdoors and when I’m not outside you can usually find me writing a letter, listening to Adventures in Odyssey or audio dramas, watercoloring, or brush lettering.
2. You write The Junebug Blog right? Please tell us a little bit about it! Why did you start it?! What does the name stand for?
Yes, I do! I started TheJunebugblog for a place where I can share my creative pursuits with others. I love to share tips and tricks, ideas and inspiration. The name actually came from my Mom, who, for many years (and still does every now and then), called my “Junebug” because I’m a June baby(:
3. What are three of your main hobbies?
Ooh, tough question! I would say some of my main ones are most artsy things, piano, and photography.
4. Can you go into detail about one of your hobbies above?!
Well, I will go with photography. I bought my first DSLR camera when I was 11, and I use it all the time. I love to take pictures of nature and peoples most. 
5. I read your about page and it said you have a fluffy puppy!!!!! Can you tell us about her?!!! Maybe share a picture or 12?!
Haha, yes! Her name is Maisy (also known as Maisy Lou, Lou, Dogbert, and Dogwinkle. *cough*) We got her one month after we moved in our new house as a surprise from our parents. She is a Maltipoo, which is a mix of a Toy Poodle and a Maltese. She has changed a lot since her puppy days (pictures of two months old and recently)!
I’m just curious how you got all those different nicknames for her!
6. Do you play any musical instruments? Which would you say you like the most?
Yes, I do. I play piano, guitar, and ukulele. I’ve played piano for about 9 years, and Guitar and Uke for 2. I like piano the most, and I spend the most time on it now that my music is getting harder and harder, but I love ukulele a lot as well(:
7. You love photography right? Would you like to share something that inspires you when you do photography? Maybe share your favorite picture? (I know it’s hard to choose just one)!
Yes! I really do. Well, something that inspires me to take pictures is just nature. I love all the different angles with the sunlight you can get and many objects around to choose from. Ooh! My favorite picture… that is hard! Here’s one I really like: UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_22d2
8. What’s one of your favorite holidays?
I love Christmas and Easter. 
9. What’s one thing that could help all of us, you’d like to share with us?
Jesus Christ loves and cares for you so much! He will forgive you for anything, and he will never, EVER turn you away from him!
10. Okay, final question (which is always the most fun)! If you were given a choice to buy: a barking tree frog, a mountain lion, or a cat that can’t meow it only hiccups which would you get?!
Ooh, interesting questions! A mountain lion! That would be neat (:
Thanks so much for doing this interview with me AK! I super enjoyed it!
You’re so welcome, AbbyRose! I enjoyed it (:
Thanks so much for stopping by guys! Just wanted to ask you to run over to AK’s blog The Junebug Blog and follow it to see some really awesome posts! See you guys soon!

Guys, I just read this and it was amazing and beautiful! Please go check it out!!

I know there was mention of me posting a short story about a medic today, but I decided I’d give my readers a story that was a little more light-hearted. Enjoy! ——————————– Ellie ducked behind the corner of the wall, clutching the glass of purple punch in her hands. It was demoralizing for any red-headed […]

Sunshine Blogger Award

Hello, all of my wonderful readers! The minute I found out I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Ezra from Ezra’s Everything Spot I sat down and wrote my answers and new questions…unfortunately my computer didn’t understand my creative mind and decided it would reboot……….deleteing every wonderful answer and question I thought of. So without further ado, you get to read my part 2 version of Sunshine Blogger Award. And thank you so much, Ezra!!!! I have to admit this is one of my favorite awards yet!

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog so others can find them.
  • List the rules and display an award logo on your blog post.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and notify them by commenting on any of their posts.
  • Ask the nominees 11 new questions.

Ezra’s questions:

  1. What so far has been your favorite grade in school? I think I liked 1st grade as it was the easiest but 9th grade was also cool as it was challenging but still not super hard!
  2. Favorite veggie (if you have one XD)? Cucumbers!!!! I eat them with everything! Pizza, mac & cheese, lasagna, spaghetti, etc….  
  3. If you had to make a choice to stay inside for the rest of your life or stay outside which would you choose? Outside as long as I have a tent! I love being outside…though I rather have sunny weather than rainy.
  4. Favorite fast food place? Chick-Fil-A (I’ve never gone to McDonald’s)!
  5. What’s your favorite way to workout? Confession time, I can’t touch my toes  I don’t really exercise but we do take walks a lot! I once tried to do sit-ups and after about 6 I was worn out and couldn’t bend over for a month.
  6. Is there something awesome you’re looking forward to this summer? Vacation!!! I love going on (camper) camping trips with my family. It’s so fun and it also helps remind me how lucky I am to have a beautiful big bedroom!
  7. Captain America or Iron Man? Another confession…I’ve never watched Captain America or Iron man. I’ve seen clips though! My family isn’t really into superhero movies so the only one I’ve seen was The Incredibles.
  8. Cheeseburgers or pizza? Pizza!!! It’s soooo good! Though cheeseburgers are amazing on Memorial Day and the Fourth of July!
  9. Basketball or football? So I’m not really a sports fan and we don’t really watch it. But I guess if I had to choose I’d say football just because I really enjoy seeing how far and powerful the football thingy can go! I also think it’s kinda cool to know that those guys are so dedicated and love it so much that they don’t mind getting tackled by tons of guys!
  10. Favorite drink? Iced tea (in the summer), ginger ale (on trips), and water all the rest of the time! I love the feeling you get after drinking a cup of water on a really hot day!
