A Few Tags & Awards

Hi everybody! I've been working on this post a little "here and there" since last Saturday. Now I'm finally getting it up! Whew... this has been one busy week so far! ;)
Liz Darcy, Rachelle, & Eden all tagged me with the "Pure in Heart" award. Thank you so much to each of you girls for thinking of me! I really do appreciate it. :)

Now, this award does come with a few rules! So here they are:

1. Post about the tag.
2. Choose 5 bloggers who deserve this award.
3. Leave a comment on the blogs of the people
you tagged, letting them know they were awarded.
4. Answer the questions along with your post. (Omit questions you don't want to answer.)

  • Apples, oranges, or bananas?

Definitely bananas... although I do love orange juice!

  • How many siblings do you have?

I have three sisters. =)

  • Do you live on a prairie, woodland, city, or other?

Hmm... I don't live on a prairie, and it's not really wooded here. I also don't live in the city (we say we're out in the "country"), so I guess my answer would have to be "other"!

  • Scissors or glue?

I guess I'll go with scissors!

  • Is your room clean?

Well, when I first started this post it was! I have to admit that it's gotten a little messy since then. ;D

  • Italy, Greece, France, Spain, or England?

I choose England.

  • What denomination are you?

I'm a Christian, saved by the grace of Jesus and redeemed by His precious blood.

  • Gum, chocolate, or jelly beans?

First of all, I've never liked jelly beans! ... I'm definitely choosing chocolate. :D

  • What is your favorite book?

First and foremost, the Bible. But there are also a lot of other books I love. I don't think I can pick just one, though! ;)

  • Favorite ice cream flavor?

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

  • If you had to eat one type of food for two weeks, what would that food be?

Probably organic potatoes. They're filling, decent without seasonings, and they're healthy too! =D

  • What is your favorite Olympic sport?

I love to watch figure skating in the winter, and gymnastics in the summer!

  • Describe yourself in three words:

Faithful, honest, and caring. :)

  • What chore do you dislike?

I think my least favorite would have to be sanitizing the bathrooms. =)

Now I will award:

Lindsay at Content in Christ :: Samantha at Set-Apart Living :: Morgan at A Day in the Life of a Southern Girl :: Shannon at Below the Plateau :: and Alli at Waiting for Rain


This next award was also given to me by Eden. Thank you, Eden!

Here are the rules for receiving this award:

1. State 5 random facts about yourself.
2. Award 5 of your stylish blogging friends.
  1. Hmm... Well, I love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength. (Although, I don't consider that to be very random! :)

  2. I just finished reading the modernized version of Shakespeare's play "Twelfth Night" for school.

  3. I just started reading "Robinson Crusoe" for school.

  4. I used to love climbing trees!

  5. And... It's always hard for me to come up with random facts about myself! (...Does that count as an answer?? ;)

Now I will give this award to:

Samantha at Set-Apart Living :: Tessa at Chase Your Dreams :: Leah at Fleurs des Champs :: Amber at Taking Life One Step at a Time :: and Samarah at Samarah's Sayings


Now, I've also been tagged by Abigail at A Light to Follow! Thank you Abigail. =)


  • Cherries or blueberries?

That's actually a pretty hard choice for me! I like them both. :) I think I'll go with "cherries", though.

  • Dogs or cats?

Another hard choice! But I think I like dogs better.

  • Beds or sleeping bags?

Definitely beds!

  • Hamburger or hot dog?

I've never cared for hot dogs, but I do love hamburgers! :)

  • Typing or writing?

Hmm... I guess I'll go with "writing".

  • Day or night?

I love the sunshine, but I also love nighttime! I guess I'll go with "night".

  • Beach or lake?

The lake. Honestly, I don't care for large waves and I love jumping off docks at the lake!

  • Christmas or Easter?


  • Math or reading?

Definitely reading! I've never liked math, but I love to read. =)

  • Tests or studying?

Hmm... I think I like the tests better because they don't take so much time.

  • Pens or pencils?

I love using pencils. :)

  • Caterpillars or butterflies?

Butterflies. They're just so pretty!

Okay, now I'll tag:

Buttercup at Soaring on Wings Like Eagles :: Haley at Haley's Happenings :: Leah at The Narrow Path :: Taylor at Soar on the Wings of Eagles. :: and Charity at Her Price is Far Above Rubies


I pray you have a very blessed day, everyone!

Shannon said...

Thank you, Taylor!! :)

Katherine said...

Hi! I came across your blog at Below the Platuea ( I cannot spell that ;) And I thought it was ironic that your blog name is Proverb's 31 in Training, and my blog name is Akeret haBayit in Training, which is essentially the exact same thing except in a Hebraic perspective.
Anyhow, your blog is very cute, and I look forward to reading more.


Leah Marie said...

Thanks so much for tagging me! I'll do a post right away! =]

Taylor said...

Katherine: Thank you! :)


Shannon: You're welcome! :)


Katherine: How neat that our blog title's are the same! Thank you so much for stopping by here and for leaving me a sweet comment. =) I'll be sure to come check out your blog soon! ;D


Leah: You're welcome, too!! ;)
