Elegant Blogger Award...for me?

Saturday, August 10, 2013

     I've been awarded my own award by The Boyer Family Singers!  YAY!!


  1. Pleasingly graceful and stylish in appearance or manner.
  2. (of a scientific theory or solution to a problem) Pleasingly ingenious and simple.
smart - stylish - dressy - graceful - dainty - fine
Some people were asked what it means to be elegant-
"It means someone is very well dressed, well mannered and very poised.  If you've seen pictures or read of Jacqueline Onnasis Kennedy she was an example of elegance."

"classy, stylish, sophisticated, posh, charming .."

"Usually it means they look simple, classic and confident and they have a quite demur attitude."

"The way they present themselves and carry themselves. Very graceful, at ease with who they are, and of course, beautiful!"

"I think they mean graceful, not overly talkative. They wear clothes that fit well and are confident, but not flamboyant about it. They know how to appeal to people without being fake."

1.  What made you decide to start blogging? 
read a book about becoming a better writer, and they suggested to write on a blog.

2.  What is your fashion style?
I would say classy modern

3.  What is something none of your followers know about you?
I live in a town of 2,800 people...pretty small

4.  What are some of your blogging goals?
To glorify God, to become a better writer, to get 25 followers before September, and to be awarded the legendary Leibster Blog Award (just remember that);)

5.  Where is your favorite place to shop?
I really like to shop at consignment stores, thrift stores, garage sales, and non-profit stores.  Other than that some of my favorites would be Bergners, Aeropostale, and Claire's.  I can't pick one.;)

6.  What would your ideal amount of blog followers be?
I would love to have 200, but it will be a little while I think.;)

7.  What are your talents?
piano, school, writing, taking care of kids, creativity, acting, public speaking

8.  Are you a leader or a follower?
I would call myself a leader.  Although, when I am with a group I don't feel comfortable with, I tend to shrink back.  

9.  What is one of your favorite quotes?
I have so many things to work on, and so many ways that I fail. But that's what grace is all about. and I constantly wake up every morning trying to get better, trying to improve, trying to walk closer to God. -Tim Tebow

10.  Do you have a favorite book or book series?
I would have to say the Betsy-Tacy series is my favorite.  It was written mostly in the fortys, but the story is about the early 1900's.  It follows Betsy from the age of five, until she gets married.  I've read it over and over!:)

11.  Out of all of the synonyms for elegant, which would you describe yourself with (smart - stylish - dressy - graceful - dainty - fine)?

12.  What is your favorite flower?
Starburst Lillies
