The Music Tag…Again ;)

Megan nominated me for the Music Tag! (Thanks, Megan!) I did this award before, a while back, and had so much fun that I was hoping I’d be tagged again! And now I’ve gotten my wish. πŸ™‚

OK, so here we go!

Write ten songs that come on shuffle (no skipping).
Write your favourite lyric from each song.
Tag some peeps.

Sounds easy enough. πŸ˜‰

TobyMac-Beyond Me-You gave me the stars, put them out of my reach/Called me to waters a little too deep/Oh, I’ve never been so aware of my needs/You keep on making me see/It’s way beyond me

Out of Eden-Soldiers-All they throw at me, I’m not falling for it/They think I’m alone, they got it all wrong!

Avalon-In A Different Light-Don’t be afraid/Of the twists and the turns of the road that we’re on, just believe/There’ll come a day/When our faith turns to sight and we’ll see His face/While we’re here, the heartache’s hard to ignore, so for now we’ll keep our eyes on the Lord!

Rachael Lampa-You Lift Me Up-You lift me up/I’m touching the blue sky/You lift me up/I’m on top of the world/You lift me up/I’m getting closer to Heaven in every little thing I learn/You lift me up

Avalon-All Hail The Power of Jesus’ Name (Live)- O that with yonder sacred throng/We at his feet may fall!! (I had to look the lyrics up, BTW. I couldn’t understand what Cherie was singing. XD)

for KING & COUNTRY-Without Love-When the future becomes the past/You will see that it is never gonna last/I’ve got something to tell you (By the way, Joel and Luke actually performed this song on Rebecca St. James CD aLIVE in Florida. They weren’t actually for KING & COUNTRY yet. πŸ˜‰ They sound sooo much younger in this song!)

Casting Crowns-Courageous-We were made to be courageous/We were made to lead the way/We could be the generation that finally breaks the chains/We were made to be courageous/We were made to be courageous!!

ZOEgirl-Forevermore-Peace like a river/Joy like a fountain flow/Wherever you go

Building 429-Where I Belong-All I know is I’m not home yet/This is not where I belong/Take this world and give me Jesus/This is not where I belong

Capital Kings-You’ll Never Be Alone-I’m the streetlights that guide you home/I’ll be the GPS when you’ve lost your phone/I’ll be the song that’s rocking in your headphones/I’ll show the signs to let you know/You’ll never be alone

And….I decided to add a bonus song, which is Breakfast by the Newsboys-When the toast has burned and all the milk has turned/And Cap’n Crunch is waving farewell/When the Big One finds you/May this song remind you/That they don’t serve breakfast in hell!

So there you go! If you’d like to do this award (even if you’ve done it before) feel free! ❀

Have a good night. πŸ˜‰

Awards :)

Clara and Megan both nominated me for the Quote of the Day Challenge! Thanks, girls!

Here’s how it works:

Post one quote a day for three days. You don’t have to post three days in a row, just be sure to do it once so the challenge will be passed on.

Nominate three new people each day.Β 

Alright, then…here’s my quote:

“Have regular hours for work and play, make each day both useful and pleasant, and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well. Then youth will be delightful, old age will bring few regrets, and life become a beautiful success, in spite of poverty.”-Marmee from Little Women (For the record, I LOVE Marmee! She always gives such good advice to the girls. She and Jo are my favorite characters in the story. πŸ˜‰ )

I nominate:

Bookwurm Girl

Also, Koko nominated me for the Liebster Award–thanks so much, Koko!! Her questions are as follows:

If you had a whole afternoon free; no plans AT ALL, what would you spend it doing?

Okay, that’s a really tough question to answer. Hmm. Well, if it was a nice day in spring, summer, or fall, I’d probably spend most of my time outside in the backyard…maybe taking some pictures or listening to music. If it was in the winter, I’d stay cozy inside, watching an episode or two of Little House on the Prairie and drawing or writing.

What is your favourite day of the week?
Friday! πŸ˜€

What is your favourite thing about your blog?
I’m not sure if this means my blog, or just blogging in general. I guess I’ll say interacting with people all over the world. πŸ™‚

What is the reason behind your blog name?
My blog is called Everything Fun Under The Sun because I try to put a positive, fun feel into every blog post, and my name is Sunny. πŸ™‚

What blessings have you received through blogging?
Being able to meet good, God-loving people. πŸ™‚

Marvel or DC?Β πŸ˜‰
Haha, I have no idea…I’m really not a comic book person. (Except for my dad’s super, super old ones and Peanuts comic collections. πŸ˜‰ ) I guess I’ll go with Marvel.

What is your favourite number?
I never really thought about this question…but after thinking about it, I’ve decided my favorite number is 14. πŸ™‚ In the past I’ve also been partial to 5 because of Jump5. πŸ˜‰

What was the last song you listened to?
Ready Or Not by Britt Nicole! πŸ™‚

If blogs were people, what would yours look like?Β πŸ˜€
Mine would have blond hair and bright, shiny green eyes (I’ve always loved green eyes for some reason–they’re so cool!). She would be wearing a sunny yellow T-shirt and denim capri pants. πŸ™‚

Winter, Spring, Summer, or Autumn?
Summer!!! I miss summer so much!! 😦 I am getting sick of staying in my room–I miss being outside! I also really love spring, and autumn is good too.

I nominate…anyone who likes brownies!! πŸ™‚ Hehe!

My BIBPC photos will be up soon, so stay tuned! πŸ™‚


Lovely Awards! ;)

Hey! So I’ve been nominated for quite a few awards lately. I thought I’d combine them all into one post, so…here we go!

First up, Clara nominated me for the Liebster Award! πŸ˜€ Thank you so much, Clara!

Weirdest book you’ve ever read?
Probably either Fourth Grade Rats or Maniac Magee, both by Jerry Spinelli. I unfortunately had to read those books when I was still in public school. Both of them were quite strange…. especially Maniac Magee. I wouldn’t recommend either of them.

Biggest obsession?
CHRISTIAN MUSIC. I live and breathe and eat and sleep Christian music. XDΒ  Okay, not really…but I do really enjoy it. πŸ˜‰

What is the best thing you got for Christmas?
Wow, that’s a tough one! πŸ™‚ But I guess I’ll have to go with the for KING & COUNTRY album Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong., which my sister got me! (For some reason I forgot to put it in the Christmas haul post. :P) It’s an awesome CD, and I love listening to it on both my iPod and my CD player. πŸ˜‰ (A review of the album will be coming soon!)

Do you like gummy bears?
Kind of. Whenever we go out for ice cream and I get gummy bears in my sundae, I always seem to get more gummy bears in the sundae than actual ice cream. XD It’s annoying to keep chewing those chewy little bears. πŸ˜›

First blog you ever read?
I’m not sure, actually, but probably American Girl Fan. (I still think of Jessica as Liz, by the way, anybody with me? πŸ˜‰ )

I nominate…..anyone who likes pie! πŸ™‚

Next, K.A. nominated me for two awards: the Unknown Bloggers Award and the Liebster Award!! Thanks, K.A.!

Tag some peeps.

Alright, let’s get started… (By the way, I’m using my Spotify account to do this. πŸ˜‰ )

Chris Tomlin-I Will Follow-Who You love, I’ll love/How You serve, I’ll serve/If this life I lose, I will follow You.”

Newsboys-That’s How You Change The World-“Cause it’s the prayer in an empty room/Little things we do when nobody’s around/A hand reaching out to a heart in doubt/It’s the smallest spark that can light the dark/That’s how you change the world.”

Lincoln Brewster-Today Is The Day-“And I won’t worry ’bout tomorrow/I’m trusting in what You say/Today is the day.”

Newsboys/Rebecca St. James-Blessed Be Your Name-“Every blessing You pour out I’ll turn back to praise/When the darkness closes in, Lord, still I will say/Blessed be the name of the Lord!”

Big Daddy Weave-Let It Rise-“Let the songs of the Lord rise among us/Let the songs of the Lord rise among us/Let the joy of the King rise among us/Let it rise.”

Britt Nicole-Walk On The Water-“When you take that first step/Into the unknown/Know that He won’t let you go/So what are you waiting for?”

Avalon-I’m Speechless-“When it comes to You, I’m speechless/Nothing holds a candle to the waters of Your love/I’m amazed by Your grace, Your forgiving embrace/And I’m finding words could never be enough.”

Matt Maher-Because He Lives-“Because He lives, I can face tomorrow/Because He lives, every fear is gone/I know He holds my life, my future in his hands.”

Avalon-Take You At Your Word-“Say you, say Your word/Yeah, You say Your word/Yeah, You say it, yeah yeah yeah/Say you, say Your word/Yeah, You say your word/Yeah, you say Your word to me!”

Okay, that was sooo fun! I definitely want to do that again sometime. πŸ˜‰

For this tag, I nominate:

Sarah Margaret

And…anyone else who would like to do this award!

Whew….I’m beat! πŸ˜› I don’t think I’ve ever put so many awards into one post!

Have a good night, all!

The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award…Again!

Hi all! I’m so sorry for disappearing again! 😦 At the beginning of the week I had a tiny cold, so I of course didn’t really feel like posting. By Wednesday I was completely better, but I didn’t post because: a). I had things to do, and b). the weather was super nice and warm and I wanted to spend as much time as I could outside. πŸ™‚

Anyway, I’m back today with another award post! I was nominated by bothΒ Christian Homeschooler AND RebekahΒ for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! Thank you so much, girls!Β πŸ˜€

This is actually my second time receiving this award.Β I was nominated for itΒ a few months ago, and I have to tell you I’m really excited to be receiving it again. πŸ™‚ So without further ado, let’s get started on the questions!!


-Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
-Put the award logo on your blog.
-Answer the ten questions sent to you.
-Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
-Nominate ten blogs.

Here are the questions asked by Christian Homeschooler:

What’s your favorite post you have written on your blog?

Probably my post about the American Girl Fall 2003 catalogΒ (one of my very first posts!!). Not only did it help me to gain my first followerΒ (thanks again, Jen and Brianna!! :D), it also was really fun to take pictures of all the cool stuff.

Roughly how many blogs do you follow?

Oh, gosh! Too many to count! I’m going to estimate between 80-100. πŸ˜‰

What is your favorite kind of post to create?

Opinion/review posts! I love sharing my opinions with all of you, and talking aboutΒ  CDs, new releases from AG, and all that good stuff! πŸ˜›

What is your favorite kind of post to read on other blogs?

Opinion/”rant” posts, because they are usually about American Girl, and I like to hear what people think about the dolls, books, and clothing that AG sells. πŸ™‚

What is your favorite part about blogging?

Getting to meet people all over the world who have the same interests as me. πŸ˜‰

What are your top four hobbies?

Reading, listening to music, writing/blogging, and being outside!

How long have you been blogging?

A little over six months. Click hereΒ to read my first post!

Which do you prefer: reading or writing?

Reading, because I do more of it than writing. πŸ˜‰

Which dolls do you like better: Journey Girls or Our Generation?

Journey Girls, because they look so much more real and life-like than the OG dolls do. I also love the fact that the girls travel to different countries every year, too (this year it’s Italy!).

What Girl for All Time doll is your favorite?

Lydia! She is simply gorgeous.

Now here are the questions that Rebekah asked me:

Caroline or Maryellen?

Maryellen. I LOVED her books so much!

OG or AG?

This is a tough one since I love the OG accessories and outfits. I guess I’ll go with AG because I’ve been interested in it longer than OG, and I love all the adorable dolls and outfits (no matter how expensive they may be)…and the books are great too! πŸ˜€

What did you last eat?

Some Oreos. πŸ˜‰ They were yummy.

What is your favorite thing to take pictures of?

Probably nature. But dolls come in at a close second! πŸ˜‰

What camera do you use?

A Kodak M552Β (I have the pink one). I’m thinking about maybe getting a better camera in the next few years, though,Β because it’s not all that great (the zoom is really lousy :P). If anyone has any recommendations for a good but inexpensive (like not over $200) camera, let me know!

How many blogs do you have and what are they about?

Just one. πŸ˜‰ It’s just about fun stuff/things that interest me, and my everyday life.

What is your favorite season?

SUMMER!! πŸ˜€ But I also love late spring and early fall. πŸ˜‰

Would you rather have 3 our generation dolls or one anericangirl doll?

Probably one AG doll.

What is your favorite school subject?

World Literature! πŸ™‚ But I also really like Geography…right now we’re learning about Canada!

What is your favorite song?

Torture question! Right now I really like the song LionΒ by Rebecca St. James. It’s from the Music Inspired by Narnia soundtrack, and it is REALLY good! Click the link to watch a video of the song with clips from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe movie (I think?…don’t quote me on this LOL, but it’s from one of the Narnia movies. πŸ˜‰ ). The song sounds SO much cooler when it’s playing in this video. πŸ™‚

(BTW, in case you’re wondering,Β I have never seen the Narnia movies and have only read a tiny bit of the first book. So far anyway. πŸ˜‰ )

Anyway, I nominate:



Ellie (An American Girl Doll Story)


Jen and Brianna


Maddie (The Blog of Toys)


Bookwurm Girl

Maddi Rae

Here are my questions:

1. Crayons, colored pencils, or markers?

2. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

3. What is your least favorite flavor of ice cream?

4. What’s your favorite holiday?

5. Have you ever gone bowling before?

6. What type of pet do you wish you had? (Yes….animals that are not considered pets count!)

8. If you celebrate Halloween, what are you planning to dress up as this year?

9. Do you like seafood?

10. Which do you prefer to use: a mobile device (phone, tablet, etc.) or an actual computer?

This was such a fun post for me to write! Thanks for the nominations, girls! πŸ˜€

If your favorite male actor was in the room with you right now, what would your reaction be?

Well, on the inside I would be going crazy, but on the outside I’d try to act normal and start up a conversation with him.

Is there a famous person who you used to love, but you’ve suddenly changed your mind?

I don’t know if this counts, but a few years ago I was a really big fan of Britt Nicole. I still really like her now, just not as much as I did before. πŸ™‚

Vanna White. Yes, I love Wheel of Fortune-we watch it all the time but I’m not that good at it. XD

Share your famous person quote.

Home is the nicest word there is.-Melissa Gilbert/Laura Ingalls, or No worries, mate!-Rebecca St. James

Have you ever met/seen/been near a famous person?


I nominate:

Geeky Girl
Christian Homeschooler
Jen and Brianna

McDonald’s! If we go to the restaurant (instead of bringing it home), that usually means we’re traveling or on vacation, which is always fun!

I nominate:
Lydia Therese

And I’m going to ask you to answer all the questions that I just responded to. πŸ™‚

Thanks for the nominations, guys! πŸ˜€ I’ll see you all soon!



Hey guys!

I just realized that on my last awards post, for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award, I only nominated five blogs when I was supposed to pick ten. :\
So anyone else who would like that award, go ahead and do it! πŸ˜€

Sorry about that! This hopefully won’t happen again. πŸ˜‰

Look for a post coming later today or tomorrow! πŸ˜€


EDIT: Go here to find out the questions I’ve asked you. πŸ˜‰


I was nominated by Victoria (AG Cupcake Lover) for the World Doll Day tag! Thanks so much, Victoria!!

Here are the questions:

List 3 favorite dolls that you bought last year.

*cricket noise* Ummmm…welll…I didn’t buy any dolls last year, actually. This time last year, I was only just discovering the world of doll blogs/AG Tube, and I didn’t know that it was a thing to take pictures of your dolls, collect them, and other things like that yet. So…I didn’t buy any dolls unfortunately.

List 3 dolls currently on your wishlist.

1. My AG Truly Me #24 (Light skin, curly blond hair with freckles, brown eyes)-I’ve loved this doll now for over a year, and I think she is super cute. If I ever bought another AG doll (which I hopefully will someday!), this girl would be my first pick.

2. Journey Girls Mikaella (Brunette)-This doll was actually a Limited Edition Holiday doll last year, and I never knew about her until a couple of months ago. I personally think she is super pretty, and I like her so much more than the blond Mikaella (who is still available). Sadly, she is now very expensive on Amazon, so I’m not sure if I’ll ever buy her. Well, maybe someday, who knows?

3. American Girl Rebecca-I never cared too much for Rebecca until the Beforever launch last summer, and now I think that she’s such a cute doll! πŸ˜€ If I chose another historical doll to add to my collection, I’d definitely want to choose Rebecca.

OK, I’m now supposed to nominate five people for this tag, so here are my choices:

-Christian Homeschooler from Treasured Friendships with a Flair
-Lydia from DollyFernFriends
-Kathleen from Dolls and Dance
-Madison from Delightful World of Dolls
-Loren from Happy House of AG

(I apologize in advance if you’ve already received the award…)

Also, Lydia nominated me for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! Thanks, Lydia!!


-Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
-Put the award logo on your blog.
-Answer the ten questions sent to you.
-Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
-Nominate ten blogs.Β 

Here are her questions:

If you and your best friend(s) were going to dress up in matching/coordinating outfits, what would you choose? (i.e. salt and pepper)
Well, let’s see. Since one of my best friends is my sister, we’d probably go as spaghetti and meatballs, since we both really love Italian food. πŸ˜€

Popcorn or bacon?Β 
Um…as much as I love bacon, I’d have to go with popcorn. Bacon doesn’t always agree with me… :/ (And neither do most things with eggs as the main ingredient, sadly…like scrambled/deviled eggs, egg salad, etc.)

What is your favorite band?Β 
Right now, Avalon is my all-time favorite. πŸ˜‰

Do you eat the little mints or chocolates the waiters/waitresses sometimes give you atΒ restaurantsΒ after youΒ pay your bill?Β 
Of course!! They’re so good (especially mint chocolates!). I also love the mints they give you at the car rental places. My family has learned to basically reserve them for me.

Favorite snack food?Β 
I like a lot of snack foods, but my favorite is probably Cool Ranch Doritos. (My mom ate them when she was pregnant with me, no wonder I love them so much! :D) I never get tired of them!

Have you ever listened to Owl City?Β 
Yes, and it’s because of you (Lydia)! I was reading about Owl City on your blog, and I thought, Wow, this guy sounds great! I’ll have to check out his music now. (Yes, Owl City is made up of one person. Which I don’t actually understand because it’s called Owl City.) I haven’t heard much of Owl City yet–only You’re Not Alone and Fireflies–but I’ve definitely really enjoyed what I have heard!

Book you are reading right now/book you just finished?Β 
Currently I am reading (actually, re-reading) A Week in the Woods by Andrew Clements. It’s a great book!

What was your favorite book when you were little?Β 
Well, I was particularly fond of The Poky Little Puppy. It’s so cute! πŸ™‚

Opinion on sushi?Β 
I’ve never tried it, but from what I’ve heard, it doesn’t sound like something I’d like.

Can you boil water without burning it?Β 
I’m not sure what this question is supposed to mean. I don’t know if it’s saying “is it impossible to boil water without burning it”, or “am I able to boil water without burning it”. So…I’m just going to play it safe and say…yes. πŸ˜‰

I nominate:
-Emma from Wack-A-Doodle Dolls
-Megan from A Barefoot Gal
-Alison from A Farm Girl’s Life
-Hayley from Flourishing By Restful Falls
-Shelby from Every Bit of Lovely

Here are my questions:

-What is your opinion on hard candy (do you like it/not like it, etc.)? And if you do like it, what’s your favorite kind?
-Do you like Christian music?
-If you answered ‘yes’ to the previous question, do you have a favorite Christian artist or band?
-Summer or winter?
-Would you rather celebrate Christmas in July or Christmas in December?
-What did you dream about last night?
-What are your plans for the rest of summer?
-Lemonade, iced tea, or both? πŸ™‚
-What did you eat for breakfast this morning?
-If you’re into photography/have a camera, what’s your favorite thing to take a picture of?

Have a great night!
