Versatile Blogger Award

Friday, October 2, 2015

Hello dear readers! Today I come to you with something special:) This past week I was nominated by Corin (isn't her name great!) of the lovely new blog Wonderland for the Versatile Blogger Award. I must say it was quite exciting to hear from her as well as meet her and her blog....she is new to the blogging world so be sure to go give her darling blog a visit here:) Thanks a million Corin for the nomination!!

Okay, so these are the rules:
1) Thank the person who nominated you (check)
2) Include a link to their blog (check) 
3) Write seven facts about yourself (coming up below)
4) Nominate up to 15 bloggers

I always love doing posts like this every once in awhile because it gives me a change to meet new bloggers, highlight fellow blogs, and answer questions that I normally wouldn't write about on a normal day:) So....without further adieu lets get started!!

Seven facts about myself:

1) I always trip going up the stairs! No joke! I live on the third floor of my dorm and I trip at least twice a week going up those stairs or others on campus.....I have only fallen once though:) LOL

2) I am Scottish! My 95 year old grandpa is full blooded Scott so I am more Scottish than anything else....that is where our last name McQuary comes from (the original clan spelling is MacQuarrie). It is one of the oldest highland clans tracing back to the first king of Scotland, and we have our own crest and is the coolest thing EVER!!

3) Though I am Scottish I have always wanted to be British so sometimes I am known to talk in a British others but usually just to myself (I am not crazy.....promise!). If I ever travel to England there is a good possibility I will come back with an accent....just saying! Every time I am in the presence of a British person I always want to start talking in an accent:)

4) My great grandmother was a writer and a few of my great Aunts are/were writers also (one is even published I think) so my love for writing is definitely an inherited trait! 

5) If I ever changed my hair color I would totally go for an Anne of Green Gables auburn red! Plus, I think I gravitate a lot towards the shade of red because of my Scottish blood and because my hair has a little bit of red tents to it already:)

6) I love pretty much any type of music (except like hard rock and screamo stuff). Therefore on my ipod you will find techno/electric house music inspired by my brother (Capital Kings is my fave), country (I live in Texas so gotta love it), old fashioned swing music and the like, singer song writer, modern pop I guess (really whatever is on the radio), and of course I couldn't live without the amazing Christian music (Hillsong, Britt Nicole, etc.). 

7) Last one....hmm......okay I would consider this to be an interesting fact about myself and one worth of my dreams is to publish a book one day and due to that I am currently in the middle of writing a book with one of my best friends inspired by our lives and everything that goes on around us (Soooooo excited about it!). My second blog STANDOUTgirl (which I don't post on enough) is a branch off of my passion to inspire others to be bold in a weak world. 

I guess that is about it! There are definitely more things I could share....I am one to go on and on and on if you don't stop me so I hope you enjoyed learning seven new things about me:)

I nominate: 
Maria of A Golden Picnic
Naomi of Wonderland Creek
I honestly could nominate every blogger I know so if you want to do a post for the Versatile Blogger Award than I hereby Nominate you _____________ !!!


  1. Thanks so much for tagging me, Madison! I think I might fill this one out! :-)

    And that's so cool you're Scottish!!! Do you have a bit of an accent? (Cuz *I* think Scottish accents are the cutest things ever. :-P) Good luck with your novel! That's so exciting. :-)

    ~ Naomi

    1. So awesome to hear that Naomi! Unfortunately I don't have a Scottish Accent (aren't they great though). Since my grandfathers parents lived in Texas I think that they lost their Scottish accents as they developed Texan accents....oh well:)

    2. Oh! That's a pity! Can a you fake a Scottish accent, then? I love doing it. :-D

    3. Surprisingly I really can't do a Scottish accent! I can really only do British. My brother on the other hand can do a fabulous Scottish accent:)

    4. You're Scottish too?! =D I'm a little Scottish (waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in History) but I feel so at home there, my best friend is Scottish though so we have fun imitating each other. Her Dad sounds like Peter Capaldi which is brilliant. hehe
      Thanks for the tag! :-)
      Eck I've got a lot to post now.. xD

    5. His accent's like this!
      It's so beautiful :-D I think I feel at home all over Great Britain but mainly up North and Scotland cause of my family. Isn't History fascinating!

  2. British accents are seriously the best!! Gosh, I want one. The fact that you're Scottish is so cool! Loved this tag, thanks for sharing:)

    1. Aren't they !!! Glad you enjoyed it:)

  3. What charmingly fun facts about yourself!!! I don't know have any Scottish blood, as far as I know, but I do have a hint of British and whether that's the reason or a million others are responsible, I have been a major anglophile my whole life, too - complete with giving the elegant ol' accent a spin every now and then, too. :)

    ♥ Jessica

    1. A hint of charming:) Ao I keep seeing people say they are an Anglophile and didn't know what it meant until now.....I absolutely LOVE that term and can totally resonate with it:)

  4. Ooh, how cool about your Scottish ancestry! And I'm glad to know there's another klutzy person out there...haha! Stay safe on the stairs. ;)

  5. I'm definitely a klutz too, but I trip over my own feet when I walk haha!

  6. OH, you have actual, real, Scottish blood!! Jealous!! I completely relate to wanting to speak in a British accent...and there's so many different local dialects that you could choose from too. My ancestry is German on my dad's side, and British and Swedish on my mom's side. My mom's grandfather came here from Yorkshire (Northern England, bordering Scotland), which I am quite pleased with. :) It was fun getting to know you a little better!

  7. Madison! I'm so excited, thanks for tagging me!
    As I am very new to blogging, I'm really honored :)
    Sorry for the delay, I'll do a post with the award rules very soon :D

    And oh, I had a period in life when I changed my hair to Anne Red (when I had longer hair), so I totally get you. And you're Scottish- thank so cool! :P
