Blog Party!!!

It's a blog parrrtttyyyyy!!!!!!!!!! *hooray!*
So all you have to do is answer a bunch of questions thought up by Miss Elizabeth Rose over at Living on Literary Lane . Easy Peasy.

Oh, and if you're interested, she's also having a giveaway at her blog. (click on the picture and it will take you to the page about the party and giveaway.)

Soooooo... time for questions!
  • Have you ever run outside during a rainstorm (and if so, please describe it)?
Yes, many times. I run outside almost every time it rains, except if there is lightning. It is so fun! I usually act out that scene from Sense and Sensibility where Mariann is on a hill and Colonial Brandon comes and rescues her. lol
  • What is your favorite Sense & Sensibility version: 2008 or 1995?
I have only seen the 1995 version. I didn't really like it just because I didn't like Emma Thompson as the part of Eleanor, and I couldn't get over the fact that "Snape" (from Harry Potter) was playing Colonial Brandon!!! Don't get me wrong, he is a wonderful actor, but it was just to weird. :)

  • Do you keep a journal (and if so, how many have you filled)?
Yes, I do keep a journal. But I just completely filled it, so now I am without. I am waiting for the perfect journal to come along so I can begin again.

I really like keeping a journal because it is so fun to write what I am thinking at the moment or what is going on, and I love going back and reading things I wrote in the past. The way you think really changes as you go along in life, and it is interesting to see what you where thinking... almost to revisit a mindset you had at the time.
  • What is your favorite thing about summer?
I really really hate summer. It is a dreadful 90-something degree day here, and I am miserable. Air Conditioner is the best thing ever.
  • What is your favorite classical song?
I am learning "Reverie" by Claude Debussy in piano lessons right now, so that is a current favorite. It is so beautiful!
  • It's your wedding day. And while you are going down the aisle (gracefully, of course), the audience suddenly bursts into singing "How Do You Solve A Problem Like ____ (your name)?" What are your emotions?
I think I would be very upset, but I would eventually get over it and laugh about it. (After kicking out whoever's idea it was to start singing that.)
  • What is your favorite scene in Sense & Sensibility? Is the same scene in the movie(s) (and if so, do you like it as well)?
I like the part in the movie where Colonial Brandon saves Mariann, of course. :)
  • Which of Jane Austen's books is your favorite? Why?
I love Emma and Pride and Prejudice. I just love the story of Pride and Prejudice, and Emma is so endearing. Emma as a character is a bit over-the-top, but I think people (I, at least) see a bit of themselves in her, so they find her amusing.
  • Describe your perfect reading "nook":
I love reading anywhere cozy on rainy days.
  • Have you ever been accused of reading a book when you were supposed to be doing chores?
Not that I can recall... Oh wait, I do remember when I was "cleaning my room" and read the ENTIRE Harry Potter book 5. I'm not sure how much cleaning was actually done.....
  • You are on the beach, and you are wearing normal clothes (NOT a bathing suit). Do you consider jumping into the cold ocean anyway?
No, I do not like swimming in natural bodies of water. However, I would (and do) wade along the shore... fully clothed.
  • Do you consider yourself a matchmaker like Emma?
Not really. Maybe sometimes in a joking way, but unlike Emma I don't actually try and get anyone together. I leave that to God. :)

  • What are your opinions involving letters: short and brief or long and lovely?
Long and Lovely, for sure!
  • What Scripture verse has encouraged you a lot recently?
I really like John 16:33 which says.... "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
  • Do you consider yourself an artist? If so, in what way?
I suppose so. I am certainly an artsy person.. I doodle on EVERYTHING, and I love to decorate. I also love music and theater, which I think are arts.
  • What interests you in a blog: beautiful layout or good content?
I think both are important. The good design draws you in, but you have to have good content to back it up. I also like lots of pictures! :)
  • Do you believe in saving your first kiss for your wedding day?
Sure. I think that is really special! However, I don't think it is necessarily wrong to kiss after being engaged. Still, I plan on saving mine. :)
  • What are your opinions involving modesty?
I only wear skirts and dresses, but I don't think you have to to be modest. Modesty comes from inside, and a desire to dress in a way that reflects Jesus. I want to be a testimony for Christ in the way I dress.
  • Did you enjoy answering all these questions?
I did!

I would just like to close this post by saying thank you to all the people who have followed my blog recently. It means a lot! ♥
