First off all, let me explain why I’m breaking my own rule and posting on a Sunday. I have a very good explanation – I have a BIG announcement.
It’s that time of year again!
(Waits for applause) Why is no one clapping?
Seriously, guys, start clapping. It’s almost NOVEMBERRRRRRRR!!!!!! Which means NANOWRIMOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
Okay, if you’ve never heard of National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo (or just NaNo), it’s a worldwide event that happens from November 1-30. Writers from all around the world commit to writing 50k words starting at the stroke of midnight on November 1 to the final seconds of November 30. It’s a really, really huge deal. I did NaNo last year and didn’t get to 50k, but I learned A LOT. After NaNo was over, I took a break for a few months, but then realized that my novel was not done. Not done at all, friends. Last spring, I worked for hours and hours and now that very same novel is almost 70k.
This year, I’m writing the sequel!
So, what does this all have to do with why I’m posting on a Sunday?
I’ve committed to posting twice a week, as usual, during November – though I will be noveling at the same time. In order to do this, I’ve been working very hard on writing/photographing ALL of my posts for November and scheduling them – and all of October while I was at it. Oh, and don’t worry, guys. I won’t be gone from the Web entirely – I will still read your posts and comment and reply to comments. I’ll just have less time to do that because of NaNo.
It took me a lot of time to figure out what posts I was going to publish when, so when Jenna from The Blog Dolly tagged me for the Blue Sky Tag, I had a slight moment of panic. All of my posts were ready to go for October and November – when and where could I fit the Blue Sky Tag in? I decided to do a random Sunday post and work it into my announcement.
So, without further ado, I bring you . . . The Blue Sky Tag!
The amazing Jenna
nominated er, tagged me (why do I keep writing nominated???).
The rules for the tag are as follows:
1.Thank the person who tagged you
2. Answer their 11 questions
3. Tag 11 people
4. Give them 11 questions to answer
She is asking me these questions:
1. What is the current color of your bed comforter?
It’s orange, white, and hot pink. It’s brand-new, actually. My main comforter that I picked out two years ago is turquoise and purple, my fave colors. But it needs to be washed and that’s why it’s not on my bed.
2. What is the coolest craft you have ever made?
I have these letters that spell out my name that are hanging above my closet.
3. How many times have you tried out a sport then decided you hated it?
Oh, goodness. First off all, I would have to say soccer. This was when I was about five and I DESPISED it. It was always FREEZING where I played. I wanted to be a cheerleader when I was five, so I would always go off the field and cheer for my teammates instead of actually PLAYING soccer. Then, when I was about eleven, my parents forced me to take karate lessons. The instructor was the meanest person I have ever met in my entire life. He was a big believer in corporal punishment. He ripped a stripe off of someone’s belt (an eight year old, I believe) just because he couldn’t do this one move exactly perfectly. Then, when I was twelve, my mom wanted me to do swim team, which took me a long time to get used to but I actually wound up liking it (after a lot of complaining, though . . .)
4. What is the current scent of your body wash and what brand? ( Don’t know why I asked told one guess I just couldn’t think of anything else!😝)
I just use soap but my shampoo is from Garnier Fructis and it’s called “Curl Nourish.” It is made with coconut, jojoba, and macadamia oils. It smells really good and makes my hair very soft. I love it!
5. What was your first word as a baby?
6. How often do you change your favorite item/ theme? Right now mine pineapples!!! 🍍
I don’t really have one. I kind of like the Eiffel Tower though. It’s been the Eiffel Tower for a couple of years now.
7. How often do you change the look of your hair? 💇
My hair and I have a love-hate relationship. I used to wish I could just brush it out and put in a ponytail (which I actually did), but my mom said not to because it’s curly. I was a ponytail girl for years, but now I wear it parted on the left side and just finger-comb it.
8. If any, how many AG dolls do you have?
I have seven: Crystal, Lindsey, McKenna, Morgan, Emily, Molly, and Grace. I always list them in that order because that’s the order I got them in. Just in case you were wondering.
9. How many times have you cried at the movie theater or any movie? And what movie was it?
I cried when I saw Epic.
10. What is the current weather condition where you live?
Right now it’s 34 and partly cloudy.
11. How many times have you done a tag? This is my first, so I am super excited!
Hmm, this is my fourth time.
I am tagging . . .
Samantha @ AG Doll Awesome
Ava @ Ava’s Pokémon Blog
Emma @ Dazzling Dollies
Okay, people. Seriously. I can only think of three bloggers who I haven’t recently tagged. Not eleven. Sorry!
Their questions are . .
What is your favorite season?
What is your favorite article of clothing?
Do you like doing laundry? (This is a really random questions, but I love doing laundry.)
What are you going to be for Halloween? (If you do celebrate Halloween, that is. I don’t.)
Does it snow where you live?
What is your favorite blog post you have ever written?
When did you start blogging?
Do you prefer baths or showers? (Another random question.)
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Do you like bunnies?
Which one of your features do you like the most? (Hair, nails, eyes, etc.)
Okay, that’s about it for now! I guess I’ll see you all tomorrow. Sorry for all the confusion. Oh, wait wait wait wait wait. I have a request to make. I really hope I don’t sound rude, but could you please not tag me until December? Don’t get me wrong, I really appreciate it when people tag me, but I have nowhere to fit tags in for the next month and a half. I LOVE it when people tag me. They are super fun to do, but I just won’t have the time to do tags – or write any posts in general this month. It’s going to get a little crazy!
Bye for now!
