Liebster3-500x500.png

I want to give a HUGE thank you to Lydia for nominating me for this awesome award. I love participating in these, because they are so fun and are a great way to discover new blogs!

~ Rules ~

  • Acknowledge the blog that nominated you for the award
  • Answer the questions they gave you
  • Give 11 fun facts about yourself
  • Give them 11 questions to answer
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers for the award

~ Questions for Me ~

1- What’s one piece of advice you want to give to bloggers?

Enjoy the experience! Write when you are inspired, and read when you want to; don’t feel pressured or overwhelmed by any of this. Blogging is fun!

2- Pool or beach?

I would have to say pool, because I haven’t had much luck at the beach lately… I have been stung by a jellyfish and almost stepped on a sting ray. Aside from these freak encounters, I can’t stand the feeling of salt in my eyes (ouch)! The pool is definitely my peaceful place.

3- Do you paint your toenails?

No, because it doesn’t even last a week with dance. I paint my fingernails though!

4- What’s your favorite childhood book?

To be honest, I have absolutely no idea. I remember feeling so forced to read in school that I was so happy when I didn’t have a book in my hands… Even though I still have to read a lot in school, I have a deeper appreciation for it now than I did when I was younger.

If you were to write a book, what genre would it be?

I have always thought it would be cool to write an adventure novel.

If you could act in any movie, what character would you like to be?

Katniss in the Hunger Games. I absolutely love the strong character that she portrayed, and I think it would feel amazing to be that role model for young girls everywhere!

Who was your first blog follower?

My first ever blog follower was Jessica.

If you were to dye your hair, what color would you dye it?

I think I would probably do blonde highlights.

What’s your go-to outfit?

T-shirt and printed stretch pants any day.

Bracelets, necklaces, or earrings?

EARRINGS! I am obsessed with earrings…

Where do you see yourself in 11 years?

In 11 years, I (hopefully) see myself dancing as a soloist in a professional ballet company.

The Fall Tag!!!

fall feeling

I am so pleased to participate in this lovely fall tag that was created by one of my wonderful followers, Maggie! Maggie is a regular visitor on Maysa Rose, and she always places a smile on my face with her sweet comments. I try to stop by her blog, Dreaming of Guatemala, as frequent as my schedule will allow. Be sure to read a few of her posts before you leave!!! https://dreamingofguatemala.com/

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!

“everyone answers the same 10 questions, then passes it on to all the other fall-loving bloggers they know. xx If you’d like to participate in this tag, comment ‘Tag me!’ down below, and you’re in!

1)What’s your favorite fall outfit?

This question is actually almost impossible for me to answer, because I am not much of a fashionista… To be completely honest, I am in ballet attire 98% of the time that I am out of the house.

2) What is fall weather like where you live?

The weather gets very cool and windy throughout the fall season. I call it the season of “dancing leaves”, because the wind sends the leaves spiraling across the sky.

3) Your favorite drink to have in the fall?

Again, this question is super difficult for me to respond to. Unfortunately, water is almost all that I drink due to the amount of time that I spend in the studio.

4) Does your family have any fall traditions? If so, what are they?

Absolutely! About a week from Halloween, my family hosts a chili cook-off for our neighbors, friends, and family. Everyone discretely brings their chili in their dishes, and everyone votes on their favorite. The winner receives the Chili Champ Trophy and a gift card. After dinner, we all carve our pumpkins and light them up at dusk. I LOVE being a part of this celebration.

5) What are some activities and events you enjoy going to in the fall months?

I love going to the apple orchard with my family, and I also enjoy picking pumpkins near Halloween. Did I mention Homecoming????? 🙂

6) What’s your favorite fall-scented candle?

I don’t really have a favorite fall-scented candle…

7) Tell us about one of your favorite fall memories.

Oh, goodness… I don’t even know!! From homecoming, the chili cook-off, all of the years trick or treating, my baby sister’s first time at the apple orchard, I have a lot of wonderful memories! I can’t even choose one over the rest!

8) What are some fall movies you enjoy watching?

I actually can’t even remember the last time that I had time to sit down to watch a movie, aside from last night. I am sorry for all of my boring responses!!

9) What’s your favorite fall treat?

I am obsessed with candy corn, hot apple cider, pumpkin pie, and caramel apples… I pretty much like every fall treat that you throw at me. 😉

10) If you celebrate Halloween, what is the best costume you’ve worn?

Ooooh, I think that my vampire costume from sixth grade is definitely one of the top costumes that I have worn for Halloween. I have to thank my mom for helping me with that incredible makeup. It was a great year.

I implore every single one of my followers to participate in this awesome activity! I would love to read your posts, so please share your Fall Tag with all of us in the comments section below! Happy Fall everyone!

The Dress
