The Awesome Blog Award!

The lovely Bethany Carson from Liberty or Death awarded the Awesome Blog Award, along with some fun questions! So hold on to your hat (and I'll hold on to my 90 some odd hats) and here we go! :~)

(See? I'm holding onto my hat ;~)

1.  If you could have an expenses-paid vacation to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? 
Hmm, probably France. I'd probably go with my Mom. Why would we go to France? To see the beautiful countryside, enjoy fresh bread and cheese we've never had before, and of course to explore Paris!

2.  What would you like to accomplish by the end of 2015?
Good question! I'm not sure actually. I didn't make any goals this year. I'd probably have to say finding ways to serve and grow my Faith.

3.  If you had a million dollars, how would you use it?
Ah, I've had the same answer for the past several years! $400,000 would go to New Hope Family Services, $300,000 would go to Samaritan's Purse, $200,000 would go to Make A Wish. and $100,000 would be set aside for blessing others. 

4.  What are your favorite foods?
Cranberry sauce, biscuits, and dried coconut!

5.  What are your favorite quotes and Bible verses?

  1. Thanks so much for doing the award, Moriah! I enjoyed reading your answers!

    You certainly have a *lot* of favorite Bible verses; there are so many good ones! France sounds like a neat place to visit--and authentic, fresh French bread? ahhh, that almost sounds too die for! Excellent advice on life.

    I'll answer a few of your questions here in the comments:
    2. I do, usually not as a fashion statement, but out of necessity. In the winter I would freeze without a hat and scarf, and in the summer I would get sunburned without a hat...such is life in Iowa!
    5. Animal Farm! I believe you recommended it. I enjoyed it. :)
    9. Yes, I used to keep one; now I just have a blog and a bimonthly newsletter for family and close friends.

    1. Thank you for letting me!

      Hahaha, yes I do have a lot! And the bread? Mmm I can almost taste it.

      2 - Makes perfect sense to me!
      5 - Yes I did! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :~)
      9 - That's neat! I'm on my 5th journal now. I've had multiple other ones, but for day-to-day, I've filled 4 and I'm working on number 5. :~)
