Hello everyone, and happy Monday! I hope your weekend was enjoyable, and that this upcoming week has gotten off to a great start for you. ❤
This past weekend, I surpassed 400 followers. WHAT!!?? I seriously cannot thank you guys enough! You’re awesome, wonderful, beautiful, and everything else that’s nice! 💕✨💜🎉
In honor of this achievement, I holding a mini celebration today, thanking each and every one of you for reading my blog!!!! I mean it – thank you so much!
For the rest of today’s post, I’m going to be answering questions from the Get To Know Me Tag! Two bloggers whose blogs I honestly love SO much – Pamela’s and Angela’s, hi, guys! – recently did this themselves, and they both very kindly left the tag open to anyone interested. I am one of those people. So, let’s just jump right into it!
This can be informative for all readers and anyone else interested. However, it is especially helpful for any new readers who have recently started following my blog!
While the questions below will definitely help you guys to get to know me better, if there’s anything else you’d like to know about me, be it about blogging, or me personally, I would love to answer all of your questions! (Wiithin reason, lol.) If I get enough questions, I will do a Q&A, but if not, I’ll answer your comments directly. 🙂
Leave any questions you have for me in the comments below. Whether I do a Q&A, or answer your comment directly, I will reply!
The Get To Know Me Tag
Nicknames: Maggie actually is my nickname – my first real name is Valerie (after my mom!) – but I’ve also been called Mag, Mags, and Moe by my brothers. No one else has nicknamed me yet, but I love nicknames. I’m always up for new ones!
Birthday: April 10th
Star Sign: Aries. Almost didn’t spell it right.
Occupation: Big sister, homeschooled student, and full-time blogger!
Hair Color: Dark brown, with auburn streaks in the sun.
Hair Length: Medium going on long, I’d think – it’s a few inches below my shoulders.
Eye Color: Dark brown; my brother used to jokingly say they are black.
Best Feature: That would either be my eyelashes, which are long and full without any mascara, or my hair, which is thick and wavy and, when I don’t feel like cutting it all off in rage, is quite beautiful. #thickhairprobs
Braces: Ah no, but I need them.
Piercings: Ear lobes when I was 8, but I didn’t like the experience so now I don’t have any piercings.
Tattoos: Nope, nor will I ever. Temporaries are loads of fun, though.
Right or Left Handed: Right, although I’m ambidextrous in many different ways. (I bat left, bowl with my right/left, pitch with my right, open bottles with my left, etc)
Real Holiday: I went to Michigan with my family to visit my great-grandparents, but I was almost four years old, so I hardly remember a thing. (See that picture above? Haha I was a little derp!)
Best Friend: There was this girl named Lacey, but I honestly can’t remember how often we got together, as I was so young, but I do remember how troublesome her attitude was at times hahaha!
Award: None, sorry.
Sport: Nada. Unless gymnastics count! But all I took were tumbling classes as a little kid.
Concert: Casting Crowns. Best night of my life. (One of the best, at least!)
TV Show: Poirot. The music. The actors. The settings. The plots. The filming. I can’t rave about this wonderful show enough.
Color: This always changes; it’s very strange. Right now, it’s green – light, soft shades of green, mind you. Different accents in my room reflect this truth, as does the design of my blog.
Songs: Leeland’s album The Great Awakening. All of it. ❤
Restaurant: Cracker Barrel! Good ole southern cookin’ hahaha
Shop: A fantastic second-hand store that almost always has half-off sales going! I’ve gotten great jeans and beautiful shirts from there over the past year, or so.
Books: The Bible, any Poirot novel, and anything else that catches my fancy at the library.
Shoes: My Nike Lunar Converge tennis shoes; they’re extremely comfortable, and I love the colors! (Dark gray body, white sides, and mint accents)
Want Children: Yes. However, I think that when I do someday, it will be through adoption. ❤ ❤ ❤
Want To Be Married: Yes yes yes! To the right man, in God’s perfect timing.
Careers In Mind: Something with books, or maybe with food. But the one thing that I’m chasing after in life when it comes to careers is whatever the Lord has put on my heart, and that right now is to one day serve Him in Guatemala. ❤
Thanks for reading, guys! And thank you SO much again for 400. ❤ ❤
