Double Trouble

Hola friends! I recently got nominated for two award-type thingies-the Sunshine Award and The 20 Things You Might Not Know About Me tag. Yay! I love doing these posts. Is that weird?

Anywho, I'm going to start with the Sunshine Award. (speaking of sunshine, it actually started to feel like fall this week! stranger things have happened never.)

Here are the rules:

  •  State five facts about yourself
  •  Answer the five questions that the people who nominated you asked.
  • .Think of five more questions, and nominate five other bloggers! (five is the magic number.....)

Ok. Five facts:

  1. I am obsessed with Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off." Aaaaanyone else?
  2. I just washed my hair last night and it feels so clean and I love it.
  3. I have almost 8,000 pins on Pinterest. That's eight thousand with three zeros, people. I don't mess around. Haha.
  4. Over a thousand of those pins are Harry Pottter pins, and over 900 are Disney pins.
  5. I've already started planning my wedding. You are all invited.
Now for the interrogation...

Favorite vacation spot?
Anywhere really. I absolutely love vacationing.
Do you have any siblings?
Yep. Four actually. I'm the oldest....
Heck to the no. 
Favorite ice cream flavor?
It's a tie between mint chocolate chip and chocolate chip cookie dough. (and no offense, but Blue Bell is the best ice cream brand ever.)
Favorite fruit?

I nominate:
The Abbot Doll Family (for some reason that title makes me thing of the song "Yellow Submarine....sorry Mint)

Alright ladies, here are my questions:
Favorite social media app?
What color shirt do you have on right now?
Most recent blog you followed?
Do you take a foreign language in school?
What's your favorite name out of all your dolls?

Now for the 20 Facts Tag!

1. Copy and paste the questions below, then answer and turn them into a blog post. Or, record a video answering these questions and upload it to your blog post.

2. At the bottom of your post, tag anywhere from 2-10 bloggers you want to see answer these questions. (I also suggest hitting up your tagged people via social media just to let them know you tagged them to do this tag challenge.)

3. Use the title: 20 Things You Might Not Know About Me Blog Tag. Once you've hit publish, leave a comment below with the link to your post.

4. Use the hashtag #20ThingsBlogTag when sharing on social media so we can all find your awesome posts!

Question 1: How tall are you?
Five something.
Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what? 
Remembering song lyrics after hearing them only once or twice. It's come in handy many a time...
Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
I have soooo many, it's not even funny. But I really hate when people don't capitalize their blog name correctly.
Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?
 Again, lots. But I'm gonna have to go with people stepping on the back of my shoe, or when it's super hot at night and I can't sleep. #texasprobs
Question 5: What’s your favorite song?
Like I said earlier, Shake It Off. 
Question 6: What's your favorite Etsy shop that isn't yours? 
Probably Closet4Chloe. 
Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
Pinterest, Instagram, practicing photography, mixing and matching my clothes, dancing and singing into my hairbrush (because I'm cool like that).
Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?
Yikes, I can't even decide.
Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets?
I have a papillion named Freckles. She's hilarious. 
Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?
My favorite nonfiction book is the Book Of Mormon. I love all things fiction, so it's pretty hard to choose, but I'd go with Harry Potter or the Books of Bayern.
Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?
Burt's Bee's Lip Shimmer, in the champagne shade. Love it.
Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
Uh this morning. We were doing are warmups in band, and we had just finished with an exercise where we played three notes at  a time. We moved on to an exercise where we only played two notes at a time...but I played three. I was the only one. Then the band director gave us a big lecture on not going on autopilot during rehearsal and everyone was looking at me the whole time.
Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Diet Coke, baby!
Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?
Pretty much anything I watch, I like. ('cept the Lorax. Not a huge fan of that one.)
Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep? Woah, I'm not even in high school yet...but I'd say I'm a combination of all of them. 
Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? Somewhere with mountains. 
Question 17: PC or Mac?
Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
Nothing comes to mind.
Question 19: Favorite celebrity?
Matt Meese, Jennifer Lawrence, or Taylor Swift. 
Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with?
Maddie from Dolls On My Mind...but really all of you too.
