I won an award!!! :D

Ya know what, I'm not even going to comment about how pathetic I am about posting on my blog.

And yes, I know that that was technically a comment about how pathetic I am about posting on my blog. But I don't care! BUAHAHAHA!

Anyways. SO, I was tagged in a blog award so I figured now was as good a time as any to post something again!

I was given this award by "Aaliyah" over at Ramblings Of A Writer, and it is called the Liebster award. As I am going to quote for Aaliyah's blog, "The Liebster Award is given to up - and - coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is German for "sweetest," "kindest," "nicest," "dearest," "beloved," "valued," "endearing," and "welcoming." "

And now for the rules:

1. List 11 things about yourself.
2. Answer the questions that the nominator has posed for you.
3. Nominate 11 up and coming bloggers who have  less than 200 followers.
4. Create 11 questions to ask the nominees.
5. Go to the page of each nominee  and tell her about her award.

11 Things About Me

1. I can be extremely shy, but all you have to do is say "hi" to me and I'll perk right up!
2. My favorite color is blue. But it's more of a turquoise/aqua blue. But I also really like dusty rose, bright red, and deep purple. Actually, I think that all of the above listed colors are tied for my favorite. ;)
3. I play the piano, the flute, and now I PLAY THE ORGAN!!!!!
5. I love dressing feminine, and really wish I had a cute, flowy, summer-y, flower-y dress to wear casually.... but alas, I do not. 
6. I love to read. I'll read just about anything with a good storyline, but my favorite stories are medieval stories. And fairy-tales! But my all-time favorite books are Regina Doman's Fairy Tale Novels (You can find them HERE!! <---).
7. I have done NaNoWriMo! And finished it!!! Now I just need to start editing my book.... and finish the book....
8. My sister is five years younger than me and our hands are the same size. :P
9. I have been saying that I want to start an Etsy shop for a year now. I've created an account, but I HAVEN'T OPENED THE SHOP YET! I'm close though! HOPEFULLY this spring!! So keep an eye out!
10. I knit. And make jewelry. And have even picked up crochet recently. I should post a picture of the crochet owl hat I made for my cousin's baby shower! :)
11. I'm going to be EIGHTEEN this summer! EIGHTEEN YEARS OLD!!! *runs around screaming like a crazy woman*

11 Questions I Must Answer

1. What is your favourite pastime? Hmmmm.... knitting, probably. At least, that's my favorite PRODUCTIVE past-time. :P Otherwise it would probably be reading or getting on the computer. :P
2. How many wonderful people follow your blog? A grand total of 8!! I'm so popular!! ;)
3. Do you have a special place where you love to spend time by yourself? Not in particular.... I spend a lot of time by myself in my room, but I wouldn't say it's my FAVORITE spot.
4. What is your favourite prayer? The Memorare. "Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known, that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided...."
5. Do you enjoy swimming? Yes, I do! I mean, not professionally or anything, but I enjoy it. :)
6. What is your favourite season, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter? Why? I believe, the springtime. Everything is beginning to grow, the grass is becoming green, the snow is melting away and it's starting to be warm again, but it's not too hot!
7. What is your favourite pastime? Hey! This question was listed twice! Tsk, tsk, Aaliyah.... ;) :P
8. Have you ever gone bowling, skiing(water or snow)? I have gone bowling, but I've never gone skiing, water OR snow. ;)
9. Is there a singer that you enjoy listening to when you are down? I guess it depends on the particular down-ness of my mood. I like listening to Taylor Swift. I LOVE Britt Nicole... and I also like Jack Johnson and Nickel Creek. :)
10. Who is your favourite saint? St. Therese of the Child Jesus. Has been ever since I was little! I also like St. Maria Goretti.
11. Which do you like better horses, cats, or dogs? Why? I like cats cuz they're cute and cuddly and they purr!
