The Unique Blogger Award + The 25 Things That Make Me Happy Tag!

Hey guys, what’s up? I am super pleased to announce that I have been nominated for the Unique Blogger Award, thanks to Emma from Dazzling Dollies! Thank you SO MUCH, Emma!!!!


The rules for the Unique Blogger Award are:

  • Answer all the questions asked by the blogger who nominated you
  • Share the link of the blogger who nominated you
  • Nominate 8 to 13 bloggers for the same award
  • Ask 3 New Questions

Okay, here are Emma’s questions:

  • What’s your favorite part about blogging?
  • What’s your favorite TV show?
  • What is the next doll that you want?

My favorite part about blogging is when people tell me that I inspire their own blogs. This makes me really happy! Also, when people tell me that a comment I left “made their day,” I feel very pleased. I love making new friends while doing something I love!

My favorite TV show is Project Mc², even though it is kind of young for me. I also like to watch When Calls The Heart, which is a Hallmark Channel romance TV show.

My next doll . . . well, either Luciana, though I probably won’t get her, or another custom. I have one in mind, maybe to do later this year . . .

Hmm, for nominations:

  • Izzy & Gracelyn @ The Diary of Two Dolls
  • Arabella @ Anything in the Wonderful Life
  • Tori & Bella @ AGsparklesisters
  • Bella @ A Doll’s Life
  • Rose @ A Purpose of Winged Dogs
  • Lizzy @ Learning To Live, Struggling To Thrive
  • Mary E. @ Forever American Girl
  • The AG Homeschooler @ AG’s Wondrous World

You guys get to answer these questions!

  • Do you play any sports? What is your favorite one?
  • Do you have a hard time not checking WordPress every five minutes? (I know I do . . .)
  • Why do you blog?

I know that’s more like four questions, sorry . . .

And now it’s time for the 25 Things That Make Me Happy Tag!


I was tagged by Enni (although technically she tagged anyone who has flown on a plane and I have done that countless times), so thank you SO MUCH!!!

25 Things That Make Me Happy Are (these are very specific and random things):

  1. Orange-scented bath products (I believe I mentioned this in my Thanksgiving post)
  2. Doing laundry! I LOVE LOVE LOVE doing laundry!
  3. The little noise that plays over the intercom in airports before they announce something like a 20-minute baggage claim guarantee (you guys probably have no idea what I’m talking about)
  4. Swinging at the park
  5. My beautiful coloring Bible with gorgeous illustrations
  6. When the numbers work right when I’m doing math (I am momentarily fooled into thinking I actually LIKE math, ha ha that’s crazy right)
  7. The smell of the air when spring is just arriving (especially in AK, since the air is very clean up here)
  8. Walking out of a plane into fresh air that is 50 degrees warmer than the air you left back at home
  9. Checking 25 books out of the library at once
  10. The library scanning machine that involves placing all the books inside at once and it scans them immediately, so there’s no need to do it one by one. (We have a very high-tech library, and the return system is even cooler – you place the books inside and it goes up the conveyor belt to the ceiling to be returned. I don’t know why I like it so much, because it has caused me to return a couple of books that apparently I was still being charged for weeks later? #technologyproblems)
  11. Cleaning my rabbit’s cage (which I should probably do tomorrow . . . 🙂
  12. Spying on trick-or-treaters who have no idea I’m watching them
  13. Getting up at 6:30 and doing all my schoolwork, though I’m not very happy at the time of doing the actual waking up
  14. The feeling I get when I’m downhill skiing (I LOVE SKIING, even though I just started this year – I was living in California when I was at an age that would be good to start learning at)
  15. Finding out the name of a song I love so I can actually download it onto my iPod
  16. When I FINALLY remember a French word I have been trying to memorize for weeks
  17. Watching people practically kill themselves on America’s Funniest Home Videos
  18. Cleaning my room (I love doing this each week, it makes me feel so organized – which I am so totally NOT)
  19. Animal Farm by Geroge Orwell. In case you haven’t read it, it’s this ridiculous novel about a bunch of talking pigs leading a dictatorship – which is required reading for English class. I would recommend it for ages 13+
  20. Getting new bands on my braces! I have an appointment in about a week, and I don’t know what colors I should get – any color combination suggestions?
  21. Taking aesthetically pleasing (wow, I don’t think I have ever used that phrase before) pictures of my dolls outside. You can’t get aesthetically pleasing pictures with the lighting inside of our house
  22. How the trees look outside once they’re covered in frost in the morning. It looks like we’re living in a magical kingdom
  23. THE MAGIC OF PHOTO EDITING WEBSITES (which I only recently discovered)!!!
  24. The sweetness of the little kids I babysit, who laugh at the smallest things and remind me of more important things in life – like having fun and smiling a lot ❤️
  25. Flying on planes! I totally love it (minus the TSA thing) – especially if I’m flying first class (yes, I have flown that way once)

I tag anyone who has traveled internationally!

Alright, that is all for today! See you all on Thursday (when I will hopefully have Part 2 of The Trials of Tessa up!)
