Liebster Award!

I'M SO EXCITED TO DO THIS!!! Thank you so much to Olivia over at Summer of 1999 for nominating me! She's one of my favorite bloggers, her blog is absolutely amazing. So if you're smart, you'll check her out right now! Plus, her tag questions are pretty awesome:) This is actually my first award/tag post! (note: I know that I did the Gratefulness Tag, but I was actually nominated for this first, and started writing it first...I just ended up posting the Gratefulness Tag before I posted this.) I'm pretty sure that I was nominated for one a while back, but being the bad blogger I am, I forgot...sorry about that! Anyways, I'm super excited to do this post!!! 

My answers

>> Who is your favorite teacher you've had so far and why?

Oh goodness, this is hard! Probably my current dance teacher. She's SO amazing, I always learn a ton from her. Taking her class is one of my favorite things all week! She has choreographed a ton of different numbers that I've danced in, and they're always so incredible.

>> What do you do to destress?

I like to go to my room, put on some Ed Sheeran, and either read, hand-letter, or journal. It's seriously the most relaxing thing ever. 

>> What is the first book you remember reading? or If you could choose one children's book to read to your child which would it be?
Oh my goodness. I really can't remember. I read CONSTANTLY when I was younger- I learned to read really early, and have had my nose stuck in a book ever since! I remember reading lots of Clifford picture books, and fairy tales, and when I got a bit older I loved The Babysitter's Club. As far as reading to my future child ( kids...nonono...), probably a big book of fairy tales. I absolutely adore them. 

>> What is the last item you purchased?

The last item I purchased.....Oh! I bought a t-shirt for the upcoming Christmas production that I'm in. I also bought a Christmas present for my sister, which I cannot name because she reads this blog haha. 

>> When and how does your family first begin to celebrate Christmas (if you do)?

We usually start with the decorations the week before Thanksgiving. We decorate our whole house, and we help decorate my grandparent's tree as well. In fact, as I'm typing this up (on the weekend before Thanksgiving), we're about halfway finished with the decorations and my dad is trying to get the Christmas tree lights to work. I need to try to put the tree in my room up soon...

>> If you could choose to have any color hair, what would it be?

Honestly, I'm really happy being blonde! If I had to pick a different color would be interesting to temporarily have really dark brown hair, just because I'm curious what I would look like haha. And I've always thought it would be cool to have cotton candy pink hair but I have a *bit* of a hair dye phobia..

 >> Favorite movie that has come out in the last year (or two, whatevs)?

I actually don't know of a movie in the last year or so that I've loved..I really don't go to the movies all that much. Do Hallmark movies count? I'm going to say that they do. In that case, I'll recommend a couple- Love on the Air, Love by the Book, and A Novel Romance. Then again, I haven't seen Mockingjay Pt 2 yet, so that could go on that list as well. 

>> Favorite book of the bible and short bit on why?

Gosh... either Psalms or Proverbs. I can't pick!!!! They're both just so great, and they're the ones that I find to be the most applicable. 

>> What time do you usually go to sleep and wake up (psh what even is a sleep schedule)?

Well, I usually TRY to go to sleep around 11 - 11:30 but let's face it it's usually at least an hour after that. Sleep schedule...I don't even know what that is anymore.

>> Which Disney princess do you want to be when you grow up (because we all know this is an important decision that we're going to have to make at some point in our lives)?

^First off, yes, this is an extremely important question!! Hmm. This is probably the hardest question on here haha. Can I mix princesses? I want to have Rapunzel's hair, Elsa's strength, Ariel's fiesty nature, and Mulan's girl power!! 

>> Well, I thought that I only had to come up with ten questions and I was happy with that last question 

being my last one, but then I realized I had to do eleven. Soooo. Do you like to color with crayons, markers, or colored pencils?
MARKERSSSS! Crayons leave the little wax bits everywhere, and colored pencils just tend to get on my nerves with their scratching sound. I know, I'm weird. 

>> BONUS: why are all these questions so child-ish???????????
