The Fall Tag 🍁

Hello and a happy Tuesday to all of y’all! Today I am sharing my answers to a tag that I was nominated for; It’s the ‘Fall Tag’! It was created by Maggie over at Dreaming of Guatemala and she just so happens to be the one that nominated me as well! Thank you Maggie ❤ The purpose behind this tag is to spread the joy that Fall brings! So, without further ado, let’s do this thing!

~The Fall Tag~

Rules:

Put the tag badge and rules in your post.

Answer the 10 fall-related questions.

Tag at least 5 other bloggers to join in the fun!

img_4744What’s your favorite fall outfit? Well, I have an absolute favorite top that I think is perfect for fall, it’s kind of difficult to describe, so I decided to just add a picture. This has been my favorite fall-ish shirt for years! I paired it with some skinny jeans, boot socks, and boots.

 

 2.) What is fall weather like where you live? Well, that’s a sad story. Let’s just say it is currently 83 degrees and that is the coolest it’s been in a little while. #thatsfloridaforya BUT, good news! It seems like everyday it get closer to the wonderful weather I love, and for that I am super grateful 🙂

3.) Your favorite drink to have in the fall?  Herbal tea. Although I enjoy drinking it every season, it just feels so right in the fall! This year I really want to try some fall inspired flavors! WAIT! I also LOVE warm apple cider, it’s amazing!

4.) Does your family have any fall traditions? If so, what are they?  I really don’t think we do….unless you count Thanksgiving?! Then in that case, yes! We always have a big and delicious meal 😛

5.)What are some activities and events you enjoy going to in the fall months? An activity I really enjoy is taking photos, usually of my siblings! As for events, we really don’t go to too many, but in the past we have been to fall festivals/trunk or treats which I always enjoyed!

6.) What’s your favorite fall-scented candle? I am going to go with, ‘apple cinnamon’. It’s scent just gives me those autumn tingles, haha!

We got into our most fall-ish clothing and began taking a bunch of pictures! I love looking back at them and laughing at all the amazing memories. The same day we made big piles of leaves to jump into! It’s funny, because we didn’t have many leaves, so we asked our lovely neighbors if we could take their leaves into our yard….let’s just say they were more than okay with it, haha!

8.) What are some fall movies you enjoy watching? Hmmm….I am not sure if I really know of any fall movies. I guess this could be a good time to mention some t.v. shows that I watch that have began a new season this fall though! There is: Heartland, Once Upon A Time, The Flash, and soon The Good Witch should be coming back!

9.)What’s your favorite fall treat? PUMPKIN PIE. No doubt. It’s the absolute best!

10.) If you celebrate Halloween, what is the best costume you’ve worn? I have had an array of costumes throughout my years, (I talk as if I have been around for a very long time, lol!) my dad used to make me AMAZING costumes when I was younger! But, for the sake of lending my memory a hand, I am going to choose something more recent, haha! I am going to say: a hula dancer. It was the most simple of my costumes, but it was the most comfortable! My second choice would be what I was last year-my made-up character, Bob. He is a man in his 30’s-40’s who is an auto mechanic. Don’t judge 😉

Well that is all of the questions! I hope you enjoyed reading! Now for the nominations:

Dancer 4 the King, beYOUtiful, Daughter of Grace

Typically Untypical Teen, A Farm Girl’s Life

 

Oh yes, one more nomination……YOU!

Tag you’re it!

Prayer Needed: UPDATE

Hello wonderful people! I hope your day is going amazing! I am here with a quick post. I just want to let everybody know how my brother is doing.

Well, turns out my original post was inaccurate, (things were crazy!) my brother actually broke his shoulder, not his collarbone. He did have to get surgery, he had two long pins put into his shoulder which will be surgically removed in 6 or so weeks. Now that we got all of the facts out-of-the-way; overall he is doing very good! Obviously he can’t do anything with that arm (thankfully it was his left, as he is right-handed), but he is well. He actually hasn’t taken any pain-killers since yesterday evening, because the pain isn’t bad, which is a huge blessing!!

Thank you to ALL of those who prayed for him! Your prayers are VERY appreciated! My brother thought it was awesome that people he doesn’t even know, from all over the place were praying for him! Here is what he had to say:

“Thank you so much for all  your prayers, they’ve been working! I please ask that you’ll continue to pray, because this Wednesday I have a check-up on how I am doing. Thank you so much for all you’ve been doing.”

I know my family would still love it if y’all could continue to pray for him. We are praying that the healing process will be very speedy! There is already evidence of this showing, which is an amazing thing to praise God about 😀

As always, have a blessed and amazing day!

Prayer Needed

Hi everyone! I am here calling all prayer warriors for a favor. My brother is a football player (an amazing one too!) he was at a game tonight and he recovered a fumble (told ya he was good 😉) Unfortunately in the mix of it all he broke his collarbone, pretty badly too. He also pulled his arm out of socket which does not make the situation any better. He was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance. Currently my parents are waiting for the surgeon to tell them whether he needs surgery right now, or not. This is a situation that needs to be handed over to God, for sure. We are praying for a miracle to happen, we know it can happen. In case you didn’t know: God is awesome y’all!! Again, my whole family would really appreciate all of your prayers. Thank you, all of you guys are so awesome 😊❤️

The Sweet Blogger Award

The Sweet Blogger Award

 

Hello to all of my beautiful readers! I have been nominated for the “Sweet Blogger Award” by Maggie from ‘Dreaming of Guatemala’. She is an amazing blogger and I am so very honored to have been nominated by her! Please check out her blog and her award post right HERE!!

This award is only slightly over 1 month old!!  It was created by a blogger named Maha, she has a lovely blog named Beyoutiful! Wondering what this award is all about? Well this is what Maha had to say, “The Sweet Blogger Award is for bloggers who are inspiring writers and beautiful souls and always take their time to shower other people/bloggers with  so much love & care! They tend to always give encouraging  & thoughtful comments, appreciate their work, and supportive in making them a better blogger 🙂

Do I even deserve this?!?! I mean, that is such an amazing award  ❤

As always, here are the rules:

Thank the person who nominated you. 

Include the reason behind the award and who created the award 

Include the logo in your post. 

 Answer the questions your nominator gave you. ✔

Nominate at least 5 awesome bloggers. ✔

Give your nominees 10 new questions to answer. ✔

Let your nominees know that they’ve been nominated! ( I shall do this after I post it!)

 

HERE WE GO!!

What is something most people don’t know about you?

Oooohhh!!! Well there are a lot of things the blogging community does not  know about me (which shall be fixed in an upcoming post!) As for people actually in my life and around me? I would say not many people know that I am a huge weirdo, haha! I tend to hide that side of me when out in public places, but I am trying to be the true, weirdo and all 😉,  me 100% the time, no matter where I am at!! Let me be the first to say, IT IS NOT EASY!!

Your favorite song at the moment?

Ughhhh!! Favorites are so hard for me! Especially when it comes to music!! I could literally give about 20 favorite songs at the moment, but I don’t think I should do that (maybe I can make that a whole other post?!) The group I have been listening to a lot lately is: Hillsong Young and Free. For the sake of not straining your eyes out, I will just name three of my favorites by them: Sinking DeepReal Love, and Falling Into You!!

Are you allergic to anything? If so, what?

Nothing major, no. But, I may have a slight allergic reaction to bananas. Only if they have already started to get brown, otherwise it is okay! If I eat a browning banana the roof of my mouth and my tongue start to burn 😮 Guess who still eats them, though?!?!

If you could trade lives with any fictional character, who would it be and why?

Hmmmm….creative question, this one definitely has me thinking!!

“Real life” person: Christy Miller from the book series: Christy Miller Collection (haha!) By: Robin Jones Gunn- Y’all, this is my favorite book series! Just thought I’d add that in! Why would I choose her? Well she is an amazing God-follower, she has amazing friends, she spends a lot of time at the beach, and one more reason: Todd Spencer. Only people who read the series will know why I added that name 😉

If we go a little less realistic, then I would possibly choose: Rapunzel! She is adventurous, spontaneous, super fun, faces all of her fears, she rocks short hair, owns a sassy pet chameleon, becomes a princess, marries Flynn Rider. The end!

What are a few things you love to do?

I really enjoy baking, walking, and taking pictures of sunsets and nature!!

Your favorite moments from 2017 so far?

Is it bad that I can’t even remember yesterday?!?! Okay, after some thinking time I have managed to come up with a few things:

-Staying the night at a beachfront hotel with my Momma! Although it was rainy for the majority of the time we had a lot of fun!

-The 4th of July! We didn’t do a whole lot, but it was such a happy moment! my family and I watched some fireworks, played with some sparklers, acted so silly, took many pictures, and laughed a lot. I REALLY enjoyed it ❤

-This year I also went on my first date, like ever! It was fun, although things did not workout it was still a new and exciting experience!

 

Do you have a lucky number? If so, what is it?

I wouldn’t say it was my lucky  number, but growing up my favorite number was always 16. Before I was homeschooled my number in every class and grade was 16, because they did things in alphabetical order. So, it was always my favorite!!

A few places you want to go?

Australia, Hawaii, and I am not sure if you’d consider this a place or not, but I really want to go to a Christian concert!!

Something that never fails to make you grin?

Okay, so I could take two totally opposite paths with this question….I could be serious and sweet, or I could just name something funny?! I have answers to both, so I guess I shall just do both!

Tim Hawkins. he never fails to make me smile, not only smile, but laugh until I can no longer breathe too well!! Just looking at his facial expressions makes me crack up, EVERYTIME 😂

As for something more serious: Seeing my parents being cutely romantic! Whether that is them cuddling on the couch while we watch a movie, them being silly, or a simple kiss. I just have to smile 😊 I hope to have a marriage like they do someday ❤

What are you thankful for?

SO MANY THINGS!!! My family- especially these past 5 or so months I am so grateful for my parents, they rock 🙂 answered prayers, God’s guidance and voice, a good friend, an amazing church and youth group. I could literally go on forever!

That was so fun! Thanks again, Maggie ❤

Guess Who’s Back?!?!

   Hello to all of my followers, new and old! It has been quite awhile since I last posted. It has been slightly over 2 months……I am sorry. I really have no good reason for my slacking. I still have been writing up new blog posts, I just haven’t posted any of them. I am back though!

   I am not sure if my whole blogging schedule will be the same or not, but I will be blogging much more! I know I am so behind on many things, but I am going to do my best to get caught up!

   I want to thank all of my followers for their support. I also want to welcome and thank all of my new followers! All of y’all are amazing and very much appreciated!

   Thanks again! Have an awesome day!

Change is good👈

Good Sunday everybody! Today I had the desire to change my blog’s design, I have been wanting to do it for a little while now, but I was scared to! After I had changed it I was so glad I did! I really like the layout now😁 What do you think about it? Do you like it? Also, another new thing, is I am going to be making a blog signature! I really enjoyed seeing other bloggers finish their post with it, so I have decided to join in! That is all I have to say! Have a very amazing and blessed day🌷
