New Year Q&A: Answering Y’all’s Questions!

Hello everybody! If you’re new here, welcome, I hope you enjoy today’s post! If you’re not new, thank you for coming back and reading this Q&A of mine! Let’s get straight into the post!

Anna asked:

What’s your favorite book series? I have so many, and it’s tough to choose just one! The Lord of the Rings series, set in a very intricate world with well-developed characters, has to be one of my favorites! The Hunger Games is another series that is at the top of my list!

How long have you been blogging? I started a blog to post school essays for my R.P.C. classes at the beginning of 2021. I don’t know if that would be considered blogging, as I was just posting school stuff. However, I loved the community and was interested in starting a blog to share posts about my hobbies, so I started this blog, Books and Hooks, during the summer of 2021! I have been blogging on here for approximately a year and a half, which is hard to believe!

BetsyJane asked:

What’s your favorite crochet project you’ve done? There are so many! I have been crocheting for a long time. There are some that I am very proud of, such as my first amigurumi doll, or the first pattern I followed, which was a baby blanket for my little cousin. It’s kind of difficult to come up with my favorite crochet project, considering there have been so many, but there have been a lot of cute amigurumi animals, dolls, and toys that I have made, and those are some of my favorites!

Who’s your favorite singer? I like listening to a lot of Christain artists and bands, such as Colton Dixon, Francesca Battistelli, Jeremy Camp, PJ Anderson, and For King and Country. Their songs are just so uplifting and inspirational! I also like listening to Taylor Swift, and I’ll often listen to instrumental pieces or movie soundtracks while I’m working on school.

Heidi asked:

What are the top three books you’ve read this past year? I feel like I didn’t read a lot of good books this past year, but there were some that stood out. My three favorites would have to be Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys (check out my book review here to learn more about my thoughts concerning this amazing book), The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien, and…maybe I Must Betray You by Ruta Sepetys. I do realize that two of these are by the same author, but she just writes really good books, and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to read something historical. I always learn more about history through Ruta Sepety’s books, and I love how she writes about little-known times in history, and events that I had almost no previous knowledge of before reading the book.

Top three movies you watched this past year? I am not a big movie person, and I don’t really keep track of the movies I watch, so this is a bit of a difficult question for me. I first watched the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before series on Netflix this past year, and I think that it was well-made, and I probably like them better than the books. I also watched the second Enola Holmes when it came out, and I liked it better than the previous one. As for a third movie…I don’t know. I do a lot of rewatches, so I didn’t watch a lot of new movies this past year.

Top five memories from this past year? There were some pretty great things that happened this year! My siblings and I went to visit family for a couple of weeks in the summer, which would have to make it onto this list. I also made my Confirmation, which was a big memory for the year. I finished both the first and second drafts of my dystopian novel, which…really surprised me, considering I didn’t ever imagine completing both of those. I ran seven miles continuously, which I never thought possible either! A lot of good times with family, too!

Top five to ten pictures from this past year? This is difficult, because many of my favorite photos are of me or my family, and I don’t feel comfortable sharing those on here. But, I did go through my camera and pick out a few of my favorites that don’t contain faces or anything! ☺

Anoushka asked:

If you could choose only one book to read for the rest of time, which one would it be? This is such a difficult question to answer! I cannot imagine just reading one book over and over again, because I like variety in the genres and books I read. I might go with Little Women, but that answer may just be because I recently finished it and it’s still fresh in my mind.

Book/movie characters you see yourself most in? I’ve never really thought of this before…🤔 Basically any quiet or shy book-loving character. I cannot think of any at the moment, but I’m sure there are a lot. There are a few characters in the books I’m writing that are very similar to me, but I’m not sure that counts toward this question, because it was me who created the characters.

Five tv shows/movies that define you? This is another one I haven’t really contemplated before, and, to be honest, I don’t quite understand it. Movies or shows that define me?

Story ideas you’re most excited to write about? Okay, so there’s this story idea I have, and I don’t know how good it is, but I think it would be interesting to write. The basic idea is that there is one character who was in a house fire (Landon is the name I’ll give him for now) and lost almost everything. Another character (whose name will be Magnolia) donates a crochet blanket to the hospital, and the blanket ends up going to Landon who is at the hospital. The blanket is one of the only things he has in those dark times after losing his house and everything, and when he gets out of the hospital, he sets out to find who made the blanket. That’s the general concept, but I don’t really have any further ideas and I’m not sure where the story would go. I am not going to start writing it yet or anything, because I already have a couple of books I’m working on at the moment, but I will save the idea and maybe use it in a later novel! I also like the idea of writing a historical fiction novel, but I know how much research is required to write one accurately, and I do not particularly enjoy researching…maybe someday!

Favorite genre? I like reading a variety of YA genres and am always in the mood to read from different genres. My favorite, though, are between contemporary (like Kasie West’s books!) and historical fiction.

Pertsfarms asked:

What are some of your favorite memories of 2022? I listed a few of them earlier in this Q&A. Visiting relatives and meeting some of my newest cousins were definitely some of the happiest memories from this past year. I also feel like I completed a lot of goals, and got really far with blogging and my other hobbies, which is amazing and definitely produced some of my favorite memories of the year!

Lydia asked:

Do you think we owe Aragorn, son of Arathorn, our allegiance? Yes, I think we do! 😄

Polka dots or stripes? Polka dots!

Who do you look up to the most? I look up to both of my parents, and a lot of my older family members, such as my nana, aunts, and you, my older sister! There are a lot of saints that I look up to as well, drawing inspiration from their stories, and looking at their lives and the examples they’ve set.

What is one of the saddest deaths in a book or movie/tv show? I know that there are many, but I just can’t think of them right now. I guess that there were many deaths in A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir, and they were heartbreaking. Also, (spoiler warning for anyone who has not read The Hunger Games series) Prim’s death in Mockingjay is just so tragic, especially considering all that Katniss did for her, and how Katniss responded. Finnick, too. I think that his death, unlike Prim’s, was sort of unnecessary. Salt to the Sea also had a lot of sadness. The Book Thief as well…there are just so many sad books! 😢

Least fav book of 2022? Probably the Summer I Turned Pretty series. The first one was okay…nothing great, but not horrible either. The second and third books were just awful, and I hated the ending!

Jan asked:

Who is your favorite author? I have read all of Ruta Sepety’s YA novels, and I’d have to say that she’s definitely one of my favorite authors. Her books are very well-researched and historical, yet contain interesting characters that drive the plot forward. As I said earlier in this post, one thing I like about Ruta Sepety’s books is that she chooses to write about occasions in history that I don’t hear about a lot, which makes them very interesting and educational. I like the characters, and…yes, she’s just an amazing author! I hope she writes another book soon!

What made you start blogging? I started a WordPress blog at first to just share school essays, but after following a few other blogs and interacting with other bloggers, I decided to start a blog to post crochet patterns and book reviews!

Who is your favorite fictional character? There are many different characters that I like, but one of the first people who comes to mind is Peeta from the Hunger Games series (preferably the books, but he’s not bad in the movies either.) I just really like his personality, and contrary to what the majority of my family believes, he is not a wimp! I also like Laia’s character in the Ember in the Ashes quartet and I like watching her character development throughout the series.

Diamond asked:

What is your favorite family memory? There are so many! I don’t think it’s possible to choose just one! 🥰

What made you start blogging? As I said earlier, I started this blog as a space to share patterns for crochet and book reviews! I have always been interested in talking about my hobbies, but it wasn’t until I started a blog to post school essays that I realized how simple it was to start a blog, and I created Books and Hooks!

Where do you see yourself in five years? I will likely be graduated by that time, and maybe be pursuing a career. I’m not sure what else. I don’t exactly know what I want to do when I am older, so this is a bit of a tricky question.

Mayim asked:

Favorite breakfast food? I love bagels with cream cheese, especially when the bagels are homemade! Smoothies are another favorite of mine!

Favorite store? I don’t do a lot of shopping, so…does a thrift store count? That’s the main type of shopping I do. Ooh, used bookstores as well! 😁

Cheese or supreme pizza? Supreme pizza!

Favorite song? There are so many! I am always listening to different types of music depending on my mood, and what I feel like listening to at the moment. I really like Taylor Swift’s lyricism in her songs, but I don’t know how I could decide on just one song. “Miracles” by Colton Dixon is one of my favorite upbeat Christain songs, and “Love Will Heal” by PJ Anderson is a calmer song that I find myself listening to a lot. So, my basic answer is that my music tastes are always changing and it is hard for me to choose just one song! These two, though, are some of my top picks.

Are you a Starbucks fan, and if so, what’s your usual order? I have actually never been to Starbucks because there is not one very near to my house. 🙁

Sophia asked:

Favorite movie? I am not a big movie person, because I often find it hard to sit still and concentrate on a whole movie. With that being said, there are some that I really do like. The Lord of the Rings films are amazing (as are the books). It’s a Wonderful Life, I’m Not Ashamed, Miracles from Heaven, the Hunger Games movies, and the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy are some of my favorites!

Favorite show? I do not find myself watching a lot of tv shows, but my favorite is no doubt the Stranger Things tv series! I like many of the characters and a lot of the themes relating to friendship and courage. I am also going through The Chosen, which is really good! I am only on the first season, but I want to finish the series soon. I would definitely recommend it, based on what I’ve watched so far.

Favorite holiday? I love both Christmas and Thanksgiving! In the end, I’d probably go with Christmas, but Thanksgiving is an amazing holiday as well, with food, family and friends, and being reminded of all to be thankful for. However, on Christmas, we are celebrating Christ’s birth, which makes it my favorite holiday.

Where do you want to go on vacation? If I could go anywhere in the world, I’d probably choose somewhere in Europe, such as Italy or France. They seem like they have such good food, as well as many historical landmarks that would be interesting to see. Ireland would be another interesting visit!

That’s it! Thank you so much to the amazing bloggers who asked questions; I had lots of fun answering them and writing this post! How would you have answered these questions? Were you surprised by any of my answers? I’d love to hear from y’all in the comments!

I hope that you enjoyed this post! I also hope that you are having an amazing start to your week! I will probably be back next Monday, though I know I haven’t been the most consistent blogger lately, so we’ll have to see. 😄 Thanks for reading, and bye for now!

Goodbye 2022, Hello 2023

Hello everybody and happy 2023, nine days late! I am so amazed that we are already more than a week into the new year. It seems like 2022 went by in a blur, and now, we’re stepping into 2023. My 2022 was pretty good, and in today’s post, I’ll be looking back over 2022, reviewing my goals, looking up at 2023, and sharing my new year’s goals!

I made a few goals at the end of 2021, and I’ll go over them now, reviewing which ones I completed and which ones I didn’t do so well on. Honestly, I half forgot about these goals and didn’t follow them throughout the year a lot.

~ Blogging-related ~

• Get 100 followers.

Yes! Thank you, guys! My current total following count is 175 followers. I cannot believe that I made it this far, but I know that I wouldn’t be here without y’all. I am so happy to be here!

• Plan and schedule more posts.

I guess. I think that I did write more posts in advance this year.

• Do a few collabs.

I did, and they were so fun! You can check them out here.

• Have fun blogging!

Yes, I am! This year has been my third year of blogging, and it was very fun. I love blogging: sharing about the things I love, interacting with other bloggers, and reading other’s posts!

~ Writing-related ~

• Finish the first draft of my contemporary novel.

No. I just kind of scrapped that book, because I realized the lack of a plot. I might pick it up again, but probably not. I didn’t plan the novel much, and I kind of just didn’t enjoy writing it.

• Finish the first draft of my dystopian novel.

I did! Then, I wrote the second and third drafts. I feel like I got really far with this book this year!

• Write at least 1,000 words a day.

No, not really. Some months I wrote more, and other months I barely got any writing done.

~ Reading-related ~

• Read at least 60 52 books.

Starting out the year, I was aiming to read 60 books. About halfway through the year, I changed it to 52 books because I realized 60 wasn’t going to happen. I ended up reading 55 books, so about in between.

• Finish the LOTR series.

Yes, I finished the series this past fall. I loved it, and I don’t know why it took me so long to read it.

~ Running-related ~

• Enter another race.

I did! I entered a race in our local fair, and finished first for the females in my age group, although I was the only one, lol. It was a lot of fun, though!

• Run at least 200 miles.

I ran about 186, so I was soo close!

~ Life-related ~

Start waking up earlier.

This has changed throughout the months, but overall, I guess I completed the goal.

Make a better schedule.

Like with the previous goal, it’s changed throughout the year. I think that this is something I still have to work on this coming year.

• Write in my journal every day.

Nope. I didn’t do that a lot, definitely not every day.

Goals for 2023

  • Finish my new book’s first draft.
  • Improve my schedule.
  • Get 300 followers on Books and Hooks.
  • Read one classic a month.
  • Read one spiritual book a month.
  • Read at least four books a month.
  • Improve with piano.
  • Continue my Duolingo streak throughout the whole year.
  • Do a gratitude jar every day.
  • Run 223 miles (at least).

In 2022…

In 2023…

  • I plan to post consistently.
  • I will continue sharing the same types of content I’ve been sharing, although I will probably be doing more crochet-related posts, and book reviews as well.
  • I want to reach 300 followers, which may be a bit ambitious, but I guess we’ll see!
  • I will try to post once a week, although breaks will be taken.

That’s all for today! How was your 2022? Did you hit your goals? What are some of your goals and plans for 2023? I’d love to chat in the comments! Also, be sure to comment and ask me some questions on my latest post, and I will answer them soon! I hope everyone has a blessed week, and I’ll be back with the Q&A in a few days! Bye for now!

New Year Q&A: Ask Me Some Questions

Hello! I know I already posted today, but I thought I’d do a Q&A post for the new year! So, just ask me some questions in the comments, anything you want to know. They could relate to the new year, or this past year, or they could just be general questions: hobbies, blogging, life, etc. I won’t answer any questions that I don’t feel comfortable answering, however. I’ll answer them sometime in January. Have an amazing day, and be sure to ask some questions in the comments!

I Finished Draft Two of my Novel + New Posting Schedule

Hello and happy Monday! How is the start of your week going? 😃

Soo…I didn’t really have a post planned for today, so I thought that I’d just notify y’all of my new posting schedule. I’m going to go back to posting once a week, on Mondays, because I’ve just been busy lately. I have been posting twice a week, but I feel like it’s starting to take up too much time considering my school, and other things I have going on.

Also, I finished draft two of my dystopian novel! I am very excited and will take a break before going into draft three, with editing and revisions. I will also be outlining and drafting the second book in that series (it’ll be a duology, I think) and that will be taking up some time, hence the change in my posting schedule. Would you guys like for me to share some things about this book? I already have an aesthetic up for it that I made at the start of my blogging journey, but would you like some other information about it, such as quotes, or something? Let me know in the comments.

That’s all for today. I will have a fun post for next Monday that will be much more interesting than this one. 😆 I hope you all have an amazing week, and I’ll be back later! Bye!

“Dare to Design” Contest: My Entry

Hello everybody! How’s your week going? 😃

Today, I am going to be posting my entry for Selina’s “Dare to Design” blogging contest! I think that it looked like lots of fun, so I thought that I’d enter! My entry is a photo I just took a few days ago!

This is a photo of my cat, Luna. I got up early to feed the chickens, and she followed me.

I like how this photo turned out, with the focus and everything. I normally find it hard to take photos of animals because of how much they move around, so I was surprised with how this one turned out when I went to look at it!

If you want to enter this blogging contest, be sure to check out Selina’s post with all of the details and rules, here. The entry deadline is November fifth, so be sure to keep that in mind.

That’s all for today’s post! Are you going to be entering Selina’s contest? Do you like photography? I’d love to hear from you in the comments! Have an amazing rest of your week and a great weekend! Bye!

DIY Fall-ish Pumpkins // Pearl’s Blog Tour!

Today, I’m here with a fun DIY post! This post is my stop on Pearl’s blog tour! I’m so happy to be participating in this tour, spreading the word about Pearl’s new blog!

Pearl Christine is a Jesus-loving historical and contemporary fiction writer who writes to glorify and serve her King. When she’s not writing, you can find her lost in the woods with her camera, in the middle of another creative project, spending time with her seven siblings, running, or writing and decorating letters. You can find her at her website, pearlchristine.com, where she talks about all things creative.

Pearl’s blog posts consist of various topics related to DIY projects and inspo, photography, and writing; I really enjoy reading all of them!

With all of that being said, let’s dive into the DIY tutorial! 😃


This project is very fall-ish: cute pumpkins, perfect for decor around the house! And, one of the best things about these pumpkins is that they are customizable! Let’s get into it!

Basics on the pumpkin design

These pumpkins are just made by sewing a rectangular piece of fabric into a cylinder, sewing up one end, stuffing it, and then creating wedges along the pumpkin with your thread on the pumpkin. All you have to do after this is sew/glue the stem on and tie off the thread!

Materials

These pumpkins can be made with a piece of fabric, a crocheted or knitted rectangle, or even a sock. If you’re using fabric, you can make it any size, but just make sure that one side is about 2.5 times as long as the other side. Same with the crochet/knit fabric: one side should be about 2.5 times as long as the shorter side.

You’ll also need a needle and thread (yarn needle and yarn if crocheting the pumpkin.) Stuffing, as well! The last thing you will need is something to use as a stem! I like the look of a crocheted i-cord, but you can also use a twig or cinnamon stick! If you’re going with any of the last two options, though, you’ll need a hot glue gun and hot glue.

Fabric pumpkin

If you love sewing, you’ll probably go with the plain fabric pumpkin! Firstly, cut out a piece of rectangular fabric. It can be any size, just be sure to make one side 2.5 times as long as the other side. It doesn’t have to be exact, but just try to get it pretty close.

Next, take your needle and thread, and (with the right sides of your fabric together) sew up the short sides of the rectangle together, making a cylinder shape. I used a running stitch. Shown in the photo below.

Sorry about the pictures. They’re not the best. I did take them during a rainy and cloudy day, so I understand the lighting’s not the best. Also, I didn’t have any fall themed fabric, so this butterfly one will have to do! 😄

Now, you’ll want to sew up one end of the cylinder, as shown in the below photo. I just used a running stitch, pulling tight to cinch up the end.

Now, turn the fabric right side out. Stuff, and then, sew up the other end, which will be the top of your pumpkin. Now, you’re going to take the needle and thread, and take it down to the bottom, coming back through the pumpkin to the top. This step is a bit difficult to explain, but I hope you understand. You’re creating wedges in your pumpkin, and you can sort of see what I’m talking about in the photo below.

Now, you can sew (or glue) your stem into the pumpkin, tie off your thread, and you’re done! ❤

Crochet pumpkin

Making a crochet pumpkin is fairly simple, basically the same as the fabric pumpkin. First, crochet a rectangular piece of fabric with one side about 2.5 times as long as the other. (Shown below.) You can use any stitch you like, but I would recommend alternating rows of single crochet and back loop single crochet because I like how the ridges look! Make sure it’s a tighter stitch to ensure no stuffing comes through.

Once you’re finished crocheting your rectangle, fasten off your yarn, leaving a long tail. Turn the right sides together, and sew the shorter ends together to make a cylinder. Sew up one end, like you did with the fabric pumpkin. This step is shown in the picture below.

When you’re done, turn the pumpkin right side out, stuff it, then begin to close off the top by weaving the yarn needle in and out of your rows. Photo below.

Now, you are going to make the “wedges” by taking the yarn across the pumpkin, and going horizontally up through the pumpkin, as shown in the photo below.

Add the stem, weave in your yarn’s ends, and you are done with your crochet pumpkin! You could also make a knit pumpkin by following these same instructions!

Sock pumpkin

Last, but not least, is the sock pumpkin! You can follow the same instructions for the other two pumpkins, the only difference being that the fabric is already in a cylindrical shape. Basically, you just get a sock, cut out part of it into a cylinder, and follow the same instructions from the other two pumpkins: sew up one end, turn the pumpkin right side out, stuff it, sew up the other end, make the wedges in the pumpkin, and secure the stem to the pumpkin!


That’s all for today’s post! I hope you liked it, and please go check out Pearl’s new blog! She’s also currently hosting a giveaway, which will end on the 21st. Go check out this post for more info and details. It looks really fun!

Be sure to go read the post on Rosie’s blog which will go live tomorrow, the next stop on this blog tour! Also, here is the complete schedule for the fun posts ahead!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on Pearl’s new blog and these DIY pumpkins in the comments! I hope you all have a blessed week, and I’ll be back on Thursday! ☺

I Need Some Post Ideas!

Hello everybody! I hope your week is going well! I’m pretty good, but I did get sick on Monday. 😕 I’m feeling a bit better now, though.

So, I’ve been in a bit of a blogging slump lately. I haven’t had a lot of ideas, so please give me some post ideas in the comments! I do know I have a lot of tags to get caught up on, so you might see quite a few of those for my next few posts. 😄 If you have anything you really want to see on my blog, now is your chance to tell me! I will also have a crochet pattern coming on Monday, so keep a lookout for that! Okay, don’t forget to give me any ideas in the comments if you have any! I didn’t feel like writing a full blog post today, as I’m still getting over my sickness, so this is all for this post! Have a lovely weekend!

Answering Y’all’s Questions

Hello! I’m back with a new post this week! I’m going to be answering the questions you guys have asked in this post!

Thanks so much to Addie and Maggie for asking some questions! Be sure to look at both of their blogs, because they share some great posts!

Let’s get into the questions, now!

Addie’s questions:

1. Have you ever been out of the U.S.? If so where did you go?

I actually haven’t ever. I think it would be really fun to travel sometime, though! I just don’t like plane rides.

2. Do you have any pets? (you may have answered this question before I just can’t remember lol)

I think I did before, but I don’t mind answering it again!! I have a cat named Luna! 🥰 Here is a pic!

3. What’s your favorite hobby?

Uhhhh…this is a hard one, considering the fact I have so many hobbies! 😅 Writing, crochet, and running have to be my top three. I don’t think I can choose just one!

4. If you could live anywhere you wanted in the world where would you go and why?

I would really like to visit Italy or France! If I had to choose one, though, it would probably be Italy! I’d love to go there for many reasons, one being the food! Pasta, pizza, gelato…yum! I don’t know if I’d like to live there, but just for a visit would be fun! To live…I’m not sure! I don’t have a very good understanding of different places, because I haven’t traveled a lot, so I don’t know if I would be able to answer that!

5. Any college/future plans?!

It’s funny you ask this because it’s something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. I plan to become a doula when I’m out of high school, and then maybe go to college to become a midwife if I like that career area!

Maggie’s questions:

1. Would you rather visit a library or a bookstore?

I like them both for different reasons! I love bookstores because I can actually buy the books, whereas at a library I’d have to return them in a few weeks. I also really like the library, especially if I don’t have any money to spend on books. Overall, though, I’d have to go with a bookstore!

2. What’s your favorite savannah animal?

Elephants! For some reason, I’ve just always loved them, and I don’t know why, but that’s definitely what I’d choose for this question!

3. What are a few countries you’d love to visit?

Like I said earlier, Italy and France are two countries I’d love to visit! I also really like Ireland!

4. Do you prefer lemonade or tea?

I like both, but lemonade is my favorite!

5. What were some of your favorite games to play when you were little?

When I was little, I really loved to play Monopoly and Risk! I love the games that rely heavily on strategy, instead of just luck. These games sort of combine the two, so I really enjoyed them! I also liked Scattegorites, I think, though that was a bit later.

6. How would you describe your art/decorating style?

I like really simple and cute decorations that are bright and cheerful! 😊

7. Do you prefer drawing or painting?

I don’t do much of either, because I’m not the best at it, but I do like drawing better.

Thank you all for reading! And, thanks again to Addie and Maggie for asking some questions! I had so much fun answering them! See y’all Thursday!

Bye!

Taking a Short Break + Ask Me Some Questions

Hey everybody! I hope you’re having an amazing day, and I hope you had a great week! ❤️😊

So, for the next couple of weeks, I’ll be taking a short break, because I’m going to be visiting family! I’ll be back mid-August with some amazing posts!

For now, I’d love it if you could ask me some questions! I’ll answer them when I get back! If there are any I don’t feel comfortable answering, though, I won’t. Looking forward to all of your questions!

Okay, that’s all for now! 😃 I don’t know if I’ll be checking my notifications much, but I might reply to a few comments. I also don’t know how much of y’all’s posts I’ll be able to read, because I want to spend as much of the time as I can visiting. When I get back, though, I will definitely catch up on y’all’s posts, and check my notifications!

Okay, thanks for reading! Remember to ask some questions! Bye! ☺️

Reacting to and Answering Your Assumptions About Me

Hello everybody! I hope you are having an amazing day!

A couple of weeks ago, I reached my one-year blogiversary, and I asked for y’all to comment with some assumptions you had of me! Today, I’ll be reacting to these assumptions! 😃 Thanks to everyone who commented with their assumptions! I had such a fun time reading them, and answering them!

Heidi’s assumptions:

You enjoy road trips

I do! I love traveling, as well as going on fun road trips! There’s just something so exciting about them, even if I am crammed in the car with my siblings for hours. We can usually find some fun things to do, and activities to keep us occupied! I can’t usually read in the car very well, or crochet because I get car sick, but I love to listen to audiobooks and music during car rides!

You like to hang out with friends often

I would like to, but most of my friends don’t live super close, so I don’t see them a lot. I do like talking to them, though, and talking to all of my blogging friends on here!

You like Mac and cheese over pizza

Mac and cheese is really good, but I still like pizza better! Pizza is one of my favorite foods, if not my overall favorite! 😋

Briar’s assumptions:

You like the color blue

Yesss! Blue and yellow are my favorite colors! 😊

You own a cat

I do! Her name is Luna, and she is adorable! Here are a few pictures of her:

I went on my photos app to find a picture, but I couldn’t find one that was from the past three years. I realized that most of the pictures I have of her are on my camera, so I went outside and took a few pictures! Isn’t she so cute?

You like alpacas

I guess I do. I’m not super into them, but they are cool!

Maggie’s assumptions:

you love puppies and kittens!

I do! They’re adorable! 😍💕

you like neutral color palettes

I do like neutral colors! They are one of my favorite color palettes. However, I do really like pastels and blues as well!

you’d love to go canoeing

I love canoeing! My family has a couple of canoes, and I love going out on the lake with them! It is always a chaotic thing: my brothers intent on crashing into the other boat, or one of the little kids crying because we’re drifting too far from the shore, but it is a really fun thing, and definitely a great family bonding experience! 😃

you’re more of a saver than a spender

Absolutely correct!

you like butterflies

Yes, they are very pretty!

Victoria’s assumptions:

You like birds

Yes, birds are really nice!

You like cute animals

Doesn’t everyone? 🤔

You prefer pop music to rock

Yes! I don’t really enjoy listening to rock unless I’m in the right mood, which isn’t that often. Rock music just isn’t my favorite. I don’t totally know what is considered pop music, but I listen to Taylor Swift a lot, and she does pop music I think.

Your favourite ice cream is strawberry

Strawberry ice cream is nice, (especially the kind with the chunks of strawberries 😋) but my favorite is probably mint chocolate chip, or some type of chocolate fudge ice cream!

You don’t like math

I actually usually enjoy math! I used to like it even more before I started algebra and geometry, but I still like it quite a bit! (Yes, I know it’s weird.)

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed today’s post! Were you surprised by any of my answers? Are there any more assumptions you have of me that I can answer in the comments? I’d love to hear from y’all! 😀

See you in a little while! Have an amazing day!
