AG Q&A – Back from a Deep Sleep

IMG_1750Hi Everyone!  Rebecca here.  I was nominated by Jenny at Say Hello to My Little Friends to participate in a fun AG question and answer game.  Jenny’s tag gave me the encouragement I needed to dust off the old WordPress app and have some fun!

THE RULES

List these rules in your post.
Create your own AG Q&A Tag button. If you don’t know how, you may use mine or skip this step.
Thank the person/doll that nominated you and give a link to the blog.
Come up with five questions for your nominees. You can include these in your tag post of send them separately. Do NOT ask any personal or inappropriate questions.
Have your doll that was nominated answer the questions given.
Nominate 3-5 other AG bloggers’ dolls.
Notify your nominees and send them a link to your tag post.

Here are the questions Jenny asked us:

If money were no object, what would be your dream vacation?

Hmm… this is hard but I would probably choose a trip to Hollywood to make my acting dreams come true.

IMG_1752What kind of unusual pet would you like to have?  (I’m thinking like a tiger, elephant, etc.)

I would love to own a zebra. They have such cool patterns, but unfortunately, there aren’t really any here in the U.S except for in the zoos.  I have a cute toy zebra on display in my bedroom though!

What is a hidden talent that you have that few people know about?

One of my hidden talents is math. A lot of kids in my class hate it, but I think it’s really interesting.

What is your favorite color?

My favorite color is definitely purple.

What is your favorite thing about your human?

I love my humans because they’re so loyal and they take me fun places (hint, hint!)

It looks like a lot of dolls and their humans have been tagged already, but if you are reading this and you want to join in, here are 5 questions for you!

  1. What is one book or movie you can read/watch again and again?
  2. Describe your dream house and its location.
  3. If you could see one musician/group from the front row, who would you choose?
  4. What is your favorite American Girl story?
  5. What is your favorite holiday?

Thanks for the opportunity to join in!

Sunshine Blogger 2017

sunshine-bloggerFlo at Say Hello to My Little Friends recently took part in the Sunshine Blogger award and nominated fellow bloggers inspired to participate.  I know I must be behind on a few of these nominations, so I decided to jump in!

Here are my responses to the eleven questions that help to get to know your bloggers better:

What’s your favorite post you’ve ever done on your blog?  

Ooh, that is a tough one to answer.  Maybe my three-part story about Isabelle’s mystery in the closet.  Maybe it’s asking a lot of a blog reader follow a three-part story, but I had fun with it!

Isabelle October Mystery

What’s your favorite photography tip?

I don’t consider myself an expert by any means.  Don’t let perfectionism stop you from jumping in and having fun.  That said, pictures outdoors are always a good place to start.

What season is your favorite? (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall)

Fall is pretty terrific, but I am off work in summer, and what’s not to like about that!

Do you play an instrument? Which one?

I took guitar as a kid, but didn’t practice very much.

Do you like to cook or bake? What’s your favorite thing to make?

Definitely bake!  I am known for my Irish soda bread and cut-out cookies.

What’s your dream doll? (Custom, retired, available, leaked are options)

Kirstin “new in box” with as many original outfits as possible.  Love the Scandinavian culture.

Where would you like to go if you could go anywhere?

England, Wales and Scotland!  I’m saving my money right now hopefully for summer 2018.

What do you want to do when you grow up?

Apparently I am grown up already, but I love my work in an elementary library.  A bigger dream job would be to write kids’ books.

Do you prefer things you craft or things you save up to buy?

Save up to buy.  I am not crafty or patient with crafts.  My mom is a talented artist who can build anything.  I leave this up to her and reap the benefits.

What’s your favorite bible verse? 1 John 3:1

What’s your favorite school subject? Honestly, I loved college but didn’t enjoy elementary and secondary school that much.  I think subjects are taught in a more interesting way today, and the books taught are more relevant.  In 10th grade we read “The Scarlet Letter” and “The Red Badge of Courage.”  Ugh.

  1. What’s your favorite post you’ve ever done on your blog?
