The Infinity Dreams Award

Hi everyone! Jesseca from Whimsical Writings tagged me for the Infinity Dreams Award. Thank you so much, Jesseca! :) 

The rules: 

  • Use the Infinity Dreams Award picture
  • Thank the blogger who tagged you
  • Tell us 11 facts about yourself
  • Answer the 11 questions
  • Tag 11 bloggers

Here goes!! 

Okay, the 11 (random) facts:
  • I really enjoy decorating cakes
  • I like watching cake decorating channels like How to Cook That and How to Cake It. 
  • I love spending time with friends!
  • I am listening to the Willis Clan right now :D 
  • I am growing bacteria in 4 petri dishes 
  • When I was very little, about 6, I donated my hair. But when Mom cut my braid off, she made a mistake and my hair ended up chin length. Let's just say I would prefer to not have a hair cut like that again! :) 
  • I am studying Latin as one of my language courses and am going to take the NLE (National Latin Exam) in March
  • I love receiving letters and emails and comments! :D 
  • I really like the Liberty Kids theme song!!! Well, actually, I like everything about Liberty Kids. The characters, the plot, and especially The Song :) 
  • Heartland is my favorite TV show right now. Except that I'm not watching it on TV. On Netflix ;) 
  • I finished reading The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde today and I found it quite funny :D 
Now to answer Jesseca's 11 questions! 

1. What is your favorite movie?
Umm....I don't have a favourite! I love sooo many movies right now! Some of my faouvrites are Courageous, Anne of Green Gables, Heartland (although that's not a movie, more like a TV series), Ever After, Cinderella, Swiss Family Robinson, Little House on the Prairie, just to name a few! 

2. Favorite genre of books?
Mysteries, historical fiction, and...horses (can that be considered a genre? :P)  And lots more. Those were just the ones that came to mind. 

3. Books that are releasing in 2016 you are looking forward to reading?

Shadows from the Past, the fourth book in the Circle C Milestones series! Although I should probably read the first three books first! :D 
4. If you could travel anywhere in the U.S., where would you go? 

Alaska. The scenery would make for lots of pictures, I'm sure :) Although I'm pretty certain there are tons of other places in the US that would be great for pictures, like the Grand Canyon! 

5. Do you play any instruments? 

Yes! I am currently in Grade 7 RCM for piano and am working towards a Grade 8 certificate :) And...don't know if voice counts as an instrument...but I "play" that too ;)

6. What is your favorite classical song?
I'm not too sure what this song is called, but it's a Bach-y song I think. It's about Bach, so I would assume it's Bach, but yeah. Have you heard of the song? It goes "Bach wrote a minuet one day, his twenty children then could play, we sing it now though he wrote his music two three hundred years ago!" 

7. Surprise! You've just been given a ticket to meet your favorite author! Who is it?
I keep humming and hawing over these questions, I'm sorry! I don't have a favourite author, there are so many favourites!! How about the ticket is for a conference/convention sort of thing where all of my favourite authors are! :D 

8. Favorite outdoor activity?
Depends on the weather! 
Summer - Swimming
Fall - Jumping on the Trampoline and taking pictures (if that's considered an outdoor activity)
Winter - Skiing
Spring - taking walks in the forest (with a camera, most times, of course!)  

9. Would you rather do laundry or clean the kitchen? (I know, I'm making you work ;P) 
Clean the kitchen! I don't know why, but there's almost a calming effect (most of the time) that I get when I clean the kitchen. 

10. What is your favorite book in the Bible and why is it your favourite?
I think my absolute favourite is either Ruth or Esther. It's amazing reading about the strength of these two women and the faith they had in God! 

11. Who is your favorite historical character and why? 
Goodness! I have so many favourites! I think I'm going to say Leah Carter for now because I've been rereading the Bonnets and Bugles series by Gilbert Morris and she is the first one to come to mind :) 

Now I know I'm supposed to nominate 11 people, but to be perfectly honest, I'm finding it hard to  find someone that hasn't been nominated already! :) So...I'm going to nominate two of my best friends:

Olivia N. from 9 Kids Plus 2
Victoria N. from Blessed Beyond Measure

And then I nominate whoever is listening to music while reading this post! :D 

Here are the questions:

  1. What was the last song you listened to?
  2. Which school subject do you find the hardest?
  3. What is your favourite holiday and why?
  4. Do you like change or would you prefer everything to always stay the same?
  5. What would you do if you woke up and opened your bedroom door to find a 6 foot bright pink stuffed elephant waving at you and saying Good Morning?
  6. Painting or drawing?
  7. What was the last book you read? 
  8. Did you enjoy the book from Question 7?
  9. Would you prefer to ride on a lion or a flying horse? 
  10. Do you remember your dreams, or do you forget them once you wake up? 
  11. (another dream question ;) If you do remember your dreams, what was the strangest dream you ever had? 
Thanks again, Jesseca for the nomination! It was super fun :) 
Hope you all have a great day! 


  1. I had a lot of fun reading your questions and getting to know you better, Blessing! :)
    Courageous is one of my favorite movies too.
    I am so excited about reading "Shadows from the Past" too!! The first three books are really good. It's one of my favorite series. ;)
    I also would really like to go to Alaska! You could definitely get some nice pictures there. :)

    1. Thank you, Rebekah! Glad you had fun :) Yes, Courageous is amazing, isn't it? Did you cry when Emily died? I did, it was sooo sad! :'(

    2. Yes it is. :) I don't think I actually cried, but it was really sad.

  2. I loved reading your answers Blessing Counter! I enjoy watching baking (and cooking) shows too :D!

    1. Thank you, Shai! Aren't baking and cooking shows fun to watch? Most times I watch baking tutorials, but if we're at a hotel or some place with cable, Mom, my sister, and I will watch cooking shows like Chopped :) Tons of fun! Which shows do you watch?

    2. I LOVE Chopped :) and Cupcake wars!!

      Fun post!! :D

    3. Cupcake Wars? That must be SO fun! I love watching people making cupcakes! I think I'm going to go check out Youtube... ;)

      Thanks for commenting, Rishona!

    4. Ooh I love the Cupcake Wars! I also love watching Chopped, Worst Cooks in America, The Great American Food Truck Race,The Great British Baking Show... Yeah all those great shows :)

    5. The Great American Food Truck Race? My goodness, how does that work? Are there food trucks racing around? ;)

  3. I loved reading your answerers! I read fact #9 and the song started running through my head. . .and it stayed there the rest of the day. ;P Technically my parents bought the Liberty Kids DVD set for my younger siblings, but I watch it with them all the time! Liberty kids is just to awesome and fun. :)
    I need to watch "Swiss Family Robinson" again. I remember watching it a while ago and loving it, but I haven't watched it recently!
    And I totally agree with you on fact #9. Give me a kitchen any day over laundry! ;)

    1. Thanks, Jesseca! Haha, yes, that song is super catchy! :) Who is your favourite character in Liberty Kids?

  4. I enjoyed reading your answers, Blessing!
    I've seen *one* episode of "Heartland". There was a few things I didn't agree with, but Amy and Ty were precious. ;)
    Oh, I wanna see "Ever After"! Is it as amazing as it looks?
    Jumping on the trampoline and taking pictures totally counts. ;) We've had two trampolines over the years, but both were destroyed. :'(
    I'm listening to music while reading and commenting! :D I guess that means I'm nominated! :)

    1) What was the last song you listened to?
    I'm currently listening to "Wait and See" by Brandon Heath. ;)

    2) Which school subject do you find the hardest?
    Geometry!!! It's literally turning my brain to mush.

    3) What is your favourite holiday and why?
    Christmas! Because a) it's Jesus' birthday and b) I love the happy, good Christmas feelings. :)

    4) Do you like change or would you prefer everything to always stay the same?
    I like change if it's a good change.

    5) What would you do if you woke up and opened your bedroom door to find a 6 foot bright pink stuffed elephant waving at you and saying Good Morning?
    Oh...my...goodness. I would scream, slam the door, and run to jump back in bed, convinced there's something wrong with me. xD

    6) Painting or drawing?
    Neither? I'm horrible at both, but if I have to pick one...painting.

    7) What was the last book you read?
    The last book I finished was "I Survived the Bombing of Pearl Harbor" by Lauren Tarshis.

    8) Did you enjoy the book from Question 7?
    Yep. Very much. ;) To be so short, there's lots of accurate history packed into it.

    9) Would you prefer to ride on a lion or a flying horse?
    Flying horse. :)

    10) Do you remember your dreams, or do you forget them once you wake up?
    Sometimes I remember them, sometimes I don't. I usually remember them right after I wake up, but later in the day? Nope. LOL.

    11) (another dream question ;) If you do remember your dreams, what was the strangest dream you ever had?
    Hmm... I remember having one really strange dream yeeeaarrs ago. The characters from Madagascar and the creepy rat-guy from Ratatouille (a movie I haven't even seen, so that's super creepy!) were at the end of my driveway. It was weird, strange, and awful.

    1. Thanks for doing the tag, Faith! It was fun reading your answers :)

      No, I would not say Ever After is as good as it looks. I'd say it's even better! :D


Hi! Thanks for stopping by! :)
I LOVE comments, so please do leave one! I will try and reply as soon as possible :D If you comment under Anonymous, please leave a name (it can be made up or real, your choice ;)
Oh, and as you all probably know, my family and I are under pseudonyms (you didn’t really think I had a brother named Spiderman or Ironman, did ya? We’re weird, but not 'that' weird! :P) If you do know our real names, please don’t say it in the comment box. Public safety stuff ;) Thanks!

Finally, brothers (and sisters!), whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things
