Another Sweet Givaway!!


Over at Living on Literary Lane is a wonderful blog party/giveaway hosted by Lizzie Rose!! Click on the button on my sidebar to go check it out (and enter)!! :)

Here are my answers to the blog party questions!
  
  • Have you ever run outside during a rainstorm (and if so, please describe it)? I was going to go get the mail, but didn't want to wait for the rain to stop - plus it looked inviting... so out I went! :)
  • What is your favorite Sense & Sensibility version: 2008 or 1995? I have only seen the 1995 version.  I liked it, although I like Pride & Prejudice and Emma the best out of all of the Jane Austen I have read/watched.
  • Do you keep a journal (and if so, how many have you filled)? Yes. I have two filled and have about 1/3 to 1/2 filled of the one I'm using, and have an empty one I'll use next. :)
  • What is your favorite thing about summer? Swimming and going barefoot!
  • What is your favorite classical song? Hmm... I really like "Four Seasons", but I also like "Rodeo".
  • It's your wedding day. And while you are going down the aisle (gracefully, of course), the audience suddenly bursts into singing "How Do You Solve A Problem Like ____ (your name)?" What are your emotions? Ha, ha! I would probably be thinking "I'm getting teased again?" And then probably start laughing or crying or both.
  • What is your favorite scene in Sense & Sensibility? Is the same scene in the movie(s) (and if so, do you like it as well)? The part where Marianne is rescued in the rain. I have read the book, but can't remember if the scene is in the book and the '95 movie version - but I think it is. *sheepish grin*
  • Which of Jane Austen's books is your favorite? Why? Now this is a tough one! I like P&P, Emma, and Northanger Abbey... I think for them in book form I like Northanger Abbey the best because it keeps me entranced and in suspense.
  • Describe your perfect reading "nook": Either a tucked away corner with a beanbag chair, or a comfy little secluded spot outside with trailing vines hanging down all around, hiding me. :)
  • Have you ever been accused of reading a book when you were supposed to be doing chores? Does that sound familiar!!! YES!! *nods head vigorously*
  • You are on the beach, and you are wearing normal clothes (NOT a bathing suit). Do you consider jumping into the cold ocean anyway? Last time I went to a beach I did (although it was at a lake, but it did have a sandy beach). All depends on weather and my mood at the time.
  • Do you consider yourself a matchmaker like Emma? No. I don't like to meddle like she does.
  • What do you like best about my blog? What do you think is the worst? (It's always good to get feedback, so I know what to change and what to keep!) Lizzie Rose, I love everything... except I would like to see more books reviews, maybe? :)
  • What are your opinions involving letters: short and brief or long and lovely? Long and lovely (and exciting :)).
  • What Scripture verse has encouraged you a lot recently? 2 Chronicles 34:5 (don't ask me now - I'll be posting on it soon, hopefully)
  • Do you consider yourself an artist? If so, in what way? I consider myself and artist in photography, and hopefully in the future as a guitar player.
  • What interests you in a blog: beautiful layout or good content? Both, but good content rules by a little more. A blog that is pleasing to the eye enriches the content - and a blog with good content enriches the look of the blog.
  • Do you believe in saving your first kiss for your wedding day? Most certainly I do!!
  • What are your opinions involving modesty? I don't really approve of pants for girls unless they are under a dress/skirt, although I do approve split skirts. I don't like tight, form fitting clothing or skirts above the knee (preferably mid-calf length at least) or shirts that show belly or have too low of necklines.
  • Did you enjoy answering all these questions? Oh, yes! Good job coming up with these, Lizzie Rose! :)

Yes, that's correct. :) I know... that is a lot of entries - I even had a hard time keeping track of what I had entered and what I had to do to get each entry. :) Thanks for hosting the givaway!!
