I LOVE THIS DRESS. It is probably my favorite aside from my navy gingham which I wear just as much. The floral is so awesome and I always get lots of compliments. I got my bestie to take some pictures of my outfit for me while I visited her in Georgia. Miss you girlie! Can’t wait for our visit later this month! EEK!
Dress: The Patsy Jean, Made by me, you can purchase a custom made one here. And it has pockets. Just saying.

Earrings: Cato’s $3//Necklace: borrowed from friend//Bracelets: gift from friend.

SO HERE WE GO!!!!
Favorite or Beautiful Word: I don’t have a favorite word, but here is a beautiful one. I just saw this the other day and LOVED IT! Hypergraphia: an overwhelming urge to write.
1 ~ What is one book you think everyone should read?
Three People by Isabella Alden. . . I know I know. . . I have mentioned this MANY times before.
2 ~ What book series that you (or your family) owns has the most books?
Pfft. . . Elsie Dinsmore, hands down. She takes the cake y’all.
3 ~ What book left you wanting to throw it across the room? (For content reasons or otherwise.)
Gee. . . that is a hard one. I rarely read books with bad content, and if I do, I don’t finish them, but throwing it across the room because I was mad or upset at a certain character or storyline? *think think think* OH! NO!!! I have one! I had to scroll through my goodreads list to find it. . .but I found it!!!! Emily’s Quest by L.M. Montgomery. I was so mad. Like the first two books were great. . . and then BAM! She went to awkwardville and TOTALLY RUINED IT! *sobs* I was so mad! L. M. Montgomery is the bomb y’all but this book was just so far in left field.
4~ How late have you stayed up reading a book?
Um. . . like, midnight? And that was only like once. *cringes* I am so weird. I feel like I am sinning or something if I stay up later than 11. LOL!
5 ~ Do you like first person present tense?
Well, I don’t mind it if someone is telling me something. . . but it would probably drive me a little crazy in a book, unless it was done right. I am not too picky about stuff like that. I wouldn’t write it though.
6 ~ Which standalone book do you think should be a series?
Shucks. . . that is a hard one. . . I feel like so many things these days are series. OH! *freaks out* I would just faint from excitement if this had a sequel. The Great and Terrible Quest by Margaret Lovet. Swoon. Seriously, I might actually not be able to handle it.
7 ~ What series do you wish had another book or two?
Elsie? LOL! JK JK! The Millie Keith Series would be a great one. Love that series.
8 ~ Who is your favorite author?
*blink blink* Can I pick more than one? Gene Stratton Porter, Isabella Alden, Grace Livingston Hill. *beams innocently* I didn’t break any rules, right?
9 ~ Kindle or paperback?
Paperback is ALWAYS preferable, but I do kindle rather frequently because I can’t afford paperback. *distant sobbing* Such is life.
10 ~ Do you like reading ahead for spoilers?
NO. NO NO NO. Just ask my friends. . . . they know I don’t like spoilers. See this post where I ranted about spoilers a bit.
11 ~ What genre do you read most often?
Um, Christian fiction? That’s a genre right? Though, that can include a lot of things. Otherwise, I like most stuff. Anything Christian. I love fantasy, but don’t often find good stuff. Oh duh Don’t know why I didn’t think of this. . . Historical for sure. Hands down. The books I have read the most of have been books written before 1950.
12 ~ Do you write reviews for books you read?
Ever since joining goodreads, yes. All the time. I sometimes share them here on the blog too, but not always, because I would be reviewing books all the time then.
13 ~ How many books do you own? (Be honest!)
Gosh, I have no idea. I would say from last count that I have about 500 physical books and probably like 200ish kindle books? Totally speculating. An educated guess though. I just have some in storage so it is hard for me to know for sure.
Questions for you: (I am super busy this week *whispers* and a little lazy, so I am going to recycle Rebekah’s questions because they were just awesome so why not?
