Fences, Roses, and Dreary Weather (+ an Award)


Today I have some photos that Allison and I took in a recent photoshoot we did. In fact, they are so recent that Allison hasn’t posted them yet! This is a never before seen photoshoot on my blog! Shocking.

*weeks later*

Hehe. Well Allison still hasn’t posted it, but I can’t say it’s terribly recent. Who cares though? I’m guessing no one. So I shall continue.

To make this post even more shocking I will also be doing two tags mixed in among the photos. I kinda just looked through different tags I’d been nominated and chose my favorite. πŸ˜› Anyway, the first one I’ll be doing is The Real Neat Blog Award which Rachel nominated me for about a year ago. Thanks Rachel!

Here areΒ The Rules

  • Thank and link the blogger who nominated you
  • Answer the questions asked
  • Nominate 7 more bloggers for the award
  • Create seven questions for your nominees.

Rachel’s Questions

ONE: What’s your favorite book?

The Bible. πŸ™‚

Trying to climb the fence post.
Trying to sit naturally on a fence post. (Hint: it’s not easy. I bet I had you fooled.)

TWO: Where is one place you wish you could visit?

For countries, I’d say some of my top picks would be Germany, France, New Zealand, Ireland, or Peru. But then I really want to see my pen pals and blogger friends, so the states they live in would also be among my top picks. And I loved going to British Columbia, Canada to see our cousins in 2013, so that would be fun too!

Allison sheds her coat for the sake of the picture.

THREE: Your favorite day of the week?

Ooh, that’s tough. I’ve always liked Wednesday because of the spelling and probably because we used to always go to Grammy’s house on Wednesdays. We also did Nature Study on Wednesday which I really liked, so maybe that’s another reason I like Wednesday.

One of the few pictures where Allison wasn’t talking and it wasn’t blurry.

FOUR: What’s your favorite show? Why?

I don’t watch shows… Well, I guess we do watch Andy Griffith and Fixer Upper. πŸ™‚ Andy Griffith is really funny and I like that, so I’ll go with that.

I had such trials trying to sit in a position that didn’t get me soaking wet and that didn’t look strange like the position in this picture does. Trials and tribulations.
I had already tried sitting cross-legged but when I did it the second time Allison decided it was good. Hmm.
Not quite sure what I was doing here…

FIVE: How many blogs do you follow?

Well let me go check. Hmm. My WordPress reader isn’t working. I know it’s over one hundred but that’s all I know.

*UPDATE* It’s actually 130.

The second time of this setting for Allison since she wasn’t satisfied with the fist batch. Humph. XD
I think she might have a mushroom in one hand.

SIX: Random question: your favorite type of car?

Does Chevy work? Then Chevy.

The cold was too much for her.
Or maybe not.

SEVEN: What is your favorite blog theme?

NOOO I don’t want to answer that. To tell you the truth, I don’t even like answering when people ask me for suggestions for themes because I want to keep them for myself. But I suppose that’s pretty selfish so ATTENTION EVERYONE! Some really great themes are Sketch, Edin, Nucleare, and Toujours. My favorite might be Sketch, though the sidebar isn’t my favorite on that.

*sob* That was hard for me. Sorry, I’m being too dramatic. I just really like finding themes that are either little-known or else you can customize a lot and are nice and clean, but mostly I like them to be unique which is why I don’t like telling people when I found a theme I love that isn’t very-well known. Bad Megan.

Hmm, can you tell I like graphic design by the size of this answer compared to the others? πŸ˜›

My nominations for this award are….








Amazingly, our first try with the rose petals worked fairly well! Must be my excellent blowing skills. πŸ™‚

My questions for the nominees: (sorry guys this is going to be annoying to copy :P)Β 

ONE: Would you rather have a miniature pony or a donkey(!!!)?

Behind the scenes.

TWO: If you had to watch either a baseball, soccer, basketball, or football game which would you choose?

THREE: Favorite color combination?

Pretty much the only good one of Allison blowing the petals. Perhaps this was because of me and not because of Allison’s blowing.

FOUR: Do you like succulents or wildflowers better?

Trying to peer through the petals.

FIVE: If you could give a donkey to anyone, who would you give it to? (Hint: I WOULD LIKE A DONKEY! :D)

SIX: What is one of your favorite quotes/bible verses?

SEVEN: Did you realize there was a Crown Roast of Pork Day? What’s your opinion on hashtags not used as hashtag such as #twoquestionsinone ?

And now I don’t know what to do with the extra space. So I shall do part of this tag I did a while ago until I’m done with the pictures.

Here you see me with a rose in my mouth, trying to balance on the fence. You can also see what happened when I knelt in the muddy pasture.

SONG THE FIRST: 4:12 || Switchfoot

-I like this song a lot, but if I had to pick my favorite lyrics it would be the last part-

And you began to believe that all you are is material
It’s nonsensical

I still can’t believe that all we are
And that all of are dreams are nothing more than material

Souls aren’t built of stone

I think Allison took this when I was pondering whether it was “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet” or if it was wouldn’t.
Or maybe that was in this picture.

SONG THE SECOND: Slipping Away || Switchfoot

-My favorite part is probably the chorus. I really like the descriptions and the way they write their lyrics. :)-

I feel like I’m dreaming
Oh oh
Staring up at the ceiling
Oh oh
It’s four in the morning
I can’t sleep and it feels like a warning
Oh oh
You wouldn’t believe me
If I could say it just the way that I’m feeling
Oh oh
The words that I wanted to say
I feel them slipping away

And now for some slightly less odd expressions.

SONG THE THIRD: Bullet Soul || Switchfoot

-I actually don’t particularly like this song (mostly I’ve gotten tired of it) and there’s already been two Switchfoot songs so NEXT! XD-

SONG THE FOURTH: Hymn For the Missing || Red

-This song is kinda sad (but it is pretty) and I can’t decide on my favorite lyrics so I’ll go to the next one again.-

She looks kind of like she’s about to eat the flower.


-Once I wrote this whole song on an envelope. I can’t quite decide what my favorite lyrics are, but maybe it’s… actually I really don’t know. Sorry. If you’ve heard this song, what’s your favorite part?-

Sorry about the rose photobomb…

SONG THE SIXTH:Β Start Somewhere || TobyMac

-Good ol’ TobyMac. πŸ™‚ My favorite lyrics are at the very end…-

Dude, the gun shot’s gotta go, man.

That’s it I mean, enough is enough. Good grief.

– XD Just kidding. Here’s my real favorite part. –

If I need you, and you need me
How can you turn your back and just leave me?
When I’m right here, and you’re right there
And God knows we’ve got to start somewhere

And we shall end on this picture. I was trying to look like a majestic and noble unicorn (even though personally, I think they’re a bit overrated), but I just look like a snooty and stuck up one.

Welp, That’s all I believe! This was a fun post to make, even if it was a bit of a jumble. I hope you enjoyed it despite the mess! πŸ˜€

Oh, one more thing. I got this super weird notification from WordPress:

WHY DO THEY NOTIFY ME OF 1,337 FOLLOWERS? That’s such a random number. I don’t get it. XD

Anyway, yay for 1,337 followers! Thanks guys! Although it’s actually 1,396 now. Thank you to everyone who reads my blog, even if you don’t follow me. πŸ™‚

which was your favorite of the questions I thought up?

i challenge you to listen to one of the songs i listed. what did you think of the one you listened to if you did?

      1. Gosh, wish my sister had a big blog! LOL.
        Heyyy, what if you hosted a giveaway for a blog review? so other people could get more traffic!


      2. Hehe! XD
        I actually sort of do that on my other blog, wpkidblogs.wordpress.com. πŸ™‚ It’s not quite like a giveaway and there are certainly less views, but if you don’t already have your blog on there I’d be happy to put it up!
