Sunflower Blogger Award

 One word. Actually, three. This post is long overdue. Well, that was five. Anyways, today I'm going to be the Sunflower Blogger Award that was awarded to me by Natasha and Opal Swirls Thanks sooo much! Your blogs are great and I'm sorry I haven't posted this sooner, because, technically they awarded this to me in July. *nervous chuckle* Yeah, well, at least I'm doing it now :) So they both awarded me the Sunflower Blogger Award, and the rules are basically post the picture, thank the person who nominated you, answer the questions from the person who has nominated you, nominate your bloggers (11people), make a set of questions for the people you nominated, and tell them you nominated them. Or something along that line. I'm sure you all have seen it all over the blogosphere. So I guess I'll answer both of their questions, and just post 11 facts about me, because in all honesty, where in my brain could I pull up 22 facts? :) Anyways, let's just get on with this, shall we?

 11 facts about me

♦ I am literally the worst person at wrapping up gifts. I just cannot get it.
♦ I write. A lot. 
♦ If I'm with people I know and love, then I'll just be really funny and weird and random, otherwise I just clam up. 
♦ I've realized that cats and me just don't get along. 
♦ I love taking nature shots and scenic photos.
♦ I don't believe in evolution. (wow that was random, but true:) 
♦ I used to never really go on Pinterest, but now it has become part of me. This picture describes me very accurately, and guess where it's from? Pinterest.  


♦ I'm currently listening to Moriah Peter's Stand Strong.  Love it to pieces. 
♦ I love reading Proverbs. It has great "inspirational" verses that are so true for everyday living. I try to read a Proverb a day, and I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a good Bible reading plan. 
♦ I want to meet you guys soo much!
♦ I wave hi to security cameras. And I'm almost positive you do too. 


OK, so that was 11 facts about me, now onto Natasha's questions. 

1.      Would you rather buy a house fully furnished or one that is unfurnished [in other words, you get to style and design the interior yourself]?

 Mmm, probably a house that's fully furnished, simply because interior decorating is something that I like to be perfect, but I'm not very good at it.
 
2.      Without having to study/practice, would you rather be able to speak three new languages or play three new musical instruments?
That's tough.  It depends on the instruments. I'd love to play guitar, but I guess I'll stick with the three languages, because that would be amazing.
 3.      [in regards to the previous question] Which languages/instruments?
 Tougher. French, Spanish, and Dutch.
 
4.      Favorite stationary?
What do you mean by stationary? 
 5.      Do you want to own a car? What kind?
Yes. Toyota Avalon XLE Touring.
 
6.      Craziest goal?
 I honestly don't know.
7.      Dream vacation?
Not dream, but I'd love to tour the country with friends or go to Paris. 

8.      Favorite color?
 Blue is a good color, I don't have a favorite.
9.      What’s the thing closest your left foot.
Either my right foot or the chair. 
10.  Which kind of blog interests you the most - Fashion, lifestyle, crafting/DIY, etc…?
All of those that you named. 
11.  Have you ever done something amazing and gotten [slightly] annoyed/disappointed cos no one was there to see you do it?
 MY LIFE EXACTLY. It's so annoying. 
Now onto Opal Swirl's questions
1) Are you hungry?  
All the time.
 
2) Purple or pink? 
Purple.
 
3) Dogs or cats? 
Dogs.
 
4) Favourite book ever? 
Bible.
 
5) You are trapped in a room without a door and all you have is one match and a book. What to you do? 
Scream and scream and freak out then finally calm down then pray and wonder why in the world I have a match and a book before I begin to read the book. 
 
6) Do you bite your finger nails? 
Nope.
 
7) Tangled or Frozen? 
Haven't seen either.
 
8) Hunger Games or Divergent
???? I haven't read or seen either.  
 
9) Have you read The Book Thief? What did you think of it? 
I haven't read it but I did watch the movie. Pretty good.  
 
10) Mac or Windows? 
I dunno. Guess I'll go with Mac, but I'll always trust Windows. 
 
11) Garlic or Chile?
Garlic. 
Thanks girls! Those questions were fun to answer!  
Okay, so, now onto to the nominees:

So, peoples, how are you doing? Good? That's good. Okay, so you know how there are four seasons? Ummm.... OK, OK, of course you know, but you know they call fall "autumn" and how my blogger name is "autumn"? 
*GASP* 
Yup. 



 I know, it's crazy. Actually, it's not crazy, it's pretty amazing, Because, personally, I adore the season, because of all the reasons there are to love it. Minus Halloween. But, to be honest, I gotta say that it's probably not actually my favorite season out of the four, mainly because summer's just amazing. But, today, I shall not talk about summer, rather, autumn. Well, that was kind of supposed to be the point of post, but we'll just see where that goes. ;)

 There are multiple reasons that fall/autumn is great, but this year I've really been loving scarves. I've always been a little shy to wear them out that much (people-conscious.... *sigh*) but hopefully Lord willing this year I want to wear them a lot more. They're just so pretty and add a pop of awesomeness to your outfit :)


Well-well-well-now-i-am-thinking-of-what-to-write-next..... Hmmm, recently I found this really inspiring song by Moriah Peters.... Please listen to it, it'll definitely be worth your time.


And here are a few more autumnish pictures for your enjoyment. Or something like that. :D


 this = me (well, minus the halloween)



 beautiful <3



 Aaaah, love <3 Again, not the halloween....



 I am literally mindblown.....



 true..... except football games, I don't really go to those.... and halloween...
