Tags and Awards :D

Hi everyone! I've been nominated for a few tags and awards over the last couple months, but because of Nutcracker and introducing the new dolls it was a while before I could do them. So thanks to everyone who nominated me for being so patient! And thanks for the nominations too :) Just to let you know I'll also be trying to nominate certain tags/awards to people I haven't seen do them yet so that you all can do one you haven't before! Ok, shall we get started?
I was nominated for The Old Posts Tag by AG Homeschooler, Thanks so much AG Homeschooler! Here are the rules....
1. Link back and talk about your first 5 posts.
2. Nominate 5 people
3. Have fun!
This was the very first post I did! I think it was pretty good, (I wish I remember how I made the pictures look decent XD) I really wanted to kick things off with my dolls and kinda show you all what the blog would be like. I'm really happy with how it came out. My favorite part was with Avery in the beginning when she was copying Molly XD
LOL I was so nervous when I posted this! I spent months getting this post ready before the blog even existed. It was the first time I had really shown anyone my stories. I feel like I've improved and learned so much since that first photo story and it's cool reading that post again and seeing how my writings changed for what I hope is for the better :)
OH!!!! This is when I introduced Kirsten to the family! I love her so much! She was my first Pleasant Company, and her story is actually true. I bought her from a missionary who had fixed her up, she sent Kirsten from Philadelphia, then Kirsten's story then just took off from there.
Oooooooo, cameras :D I made the modern camera for Molly to take on our family vacation, and the other for Kit's Photography Catastrophe. They were both featured in that post and got such a great reaction that it was requested that I do a tutorial, so that's what I did :)
(LOL I spent so much time making that header, probably longer than it took to take the pictures XD) My sweet little Molly, I was so excited about fall, and so was she! It was so fun taking pictures with the leaves since we don't get pretty fall leaves at my house. My mom helped drop leaves on Molly so I could get far enough to take the pictures, thanks mom!
That was so fun to look back and see what I did in my first month of blogging :) I hereby nominate....
Enjoy the tag everyone! I can't wait to see them!
Alrighty, next I was nominated by Madison for the One Lovely Blog Award! Thank you Madi! Your blog is lovely too (Which is probably why you were nominated for it XD)
Here are the rules...
1. Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
2. Write a post about this award
3. Share seven (7) facts about you, yourself, and you
4. Nominate one or two or fifteen more lovely blogs and tell them the good news! (Uh oh, I'm terrible at that part, I hope I remember to tell you! If not I'm so sorry excuse my awful memory!)
And here are some really random facts about myself!
1. I. LOVE. LEGO!!! (LOL you probably know this by now but hey, I thought it would be a good excuse to finally share some of my Lego photography ;) )
N Pop Girl is mine, and Olivia is my brother's :)
And this is where I keep most of my mini figs. I love the Lego movies and I'm OBSESSED with Lego movie quotes. The Lego Batman Movie is my favorite!
2. I never go by my actual legal name, *gasp* that's right, Katie is not my legal name. While I won't reveal what it is, I can say I've only really been called by it once, and I didn't respond because I thought she was talking to someone else XD
3. I love descriptive words, I think they're absolutely beautiful! For me, writing "Jennifer walked down the street" is not going to cut it. I would much rather write "Jennifer swiftly made her way down the street as the breeze blew softly through her hair."
4. I ask a lot of questions, especially in ballet class. I want to know how things work and why thing are, well, the way they are.
5. I'm very tall, I'm actually taller than my oldest sister XD
6. I would love to write fictional fantasy books someday!
7. I dress pretty casual, my favorite thing to wear is my dance school T-shirt and some leggings. Since I practice dance a lot it makes things so much easier.
LOL that was so fun! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! I hereby nominate...
(When you get back of course)

4. What’s the most interesting thing you’ve read or seen this week?
Answer: I was reading about Harriet Tubman, she was a slave in the 1840's I believe. One day she was hit by a iron weight and was in a coma for 6 months, in that time she had a vision from God. He told her she would be free, and she would help many of her people be free too. She later escaped and helped 300 slaves find freedom.
5. If you could switch two movie characters, which switch would lead to the weirdest movie?

Answer: I don't know, I keep wanting to say Chewbacca but he's not in a TV show so....
11. What’s the funniest actual name you’ve heard of someone having?
Answer: I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings if they have the name I chose, so I'm going to skip this one.
And here are lots of random facts about me :D
1. I've been dancing since I was 5 years old. I'm currently on pointe which I've been doing for about a year and a half, and I'm also on flat.

And Gloria :)

5. I run a doll restoration/knitting and crocheting business with my mom.
6. I'm far sighted and have a stigmatism, I wear purple glasses.
7. My mom is a doll collector too! She has used dolls that for the most part were ones from thrift stores I fixed up for her. This Christmas she welcomed her first American Girl doll into her collection, Molly McIntire!
No I'm joking, here's a picture to prove it. She's a Pleasant Company Molly with soft eyelashes. She'll be appearing on the blog every now and then as Jill so things don't get confusing.
8. Kit was my first American Girl doll I had ever bought at an AG store, and will be the last doll that I'll be buying new.
9. When I opened Saige on Christmas morning she was wrapped with about a box of saran wrap because I dominated at our family game the night before. The game was a giant ball of saran wrap with prizes throughout, I won most of the prizes XD
10. Avery was my first used AG doll, I got her on Ebay for $27 dollars because she had been attacked by a dog.
11. I'm a total ballet nerd. Like my room has all kinds of random ballet things,
Antique paintings,
Collectable ballet plates, (I actually have a few more of those somewhere else in my room as well...I think I have a problem XD )

    And what is the Liebster award for exactly? Sorry
    New to blogging😬
    Oh, and how do you get the award banner?
    Sorry about all the questions.
    - Haley

    1. You're welcome! Oh that's OK! I didn't make 11 people tagged ether LOL, just tag as many people as you can think of. Uh... I honestly don't know XD it's kind of just a fun award to get to know the bloggers better. OK, so you how when you hold the click down on your mouse and move it it makes what you move it across blue? You do that across the picture, then while holding down the control button (which is marked Ctrl) press the C key. Then go to your new posts thing on your blog and open it up. Click the part you write on and hold down control again, but this time hit V instead of C. I hope that all made sense, but if not let me know and I'll try to email you pictures of what to do :)
