Liebster Award

I was so excited to hear that Ashley over at Peaceful Simple Life nominated me for the fun little blogger Liebster “award”!  The award is a way for bloggers to “meet” each other and find new pages to read!  Plus it gives you all a little insight into my brain (scary!).

Here are the rules:

-You must answer the 10 questions posed to you by the blogger who nominated you.
-You then nominate 8 more bloggers and pose 10 new questions to them.  (It is best to pick bloggers without many followers.)

Here are my answers:


1.)  What is your blog about?  (Put a link to a great post you have made!)

Wellllllll so far it has been about whatever I want it to be about. ha!  Mainly I have written my random thoughts, my goals, and about running. I am hoping to include some posts about our travels last year, and any trips we take in the future.

2.)  What craft or recipe do you excel at making?

I don’t know if I “excel” at anything, but I try a little of everything.  Lately I am making a fun little quilt– the Fancy Fox quilt by Elizabeth Hartman.  As far as recipes go, I absolutely love love love this honey lime chicken enchilada recipe.  It’s the bomb.

3.)  What is your favourite fashion accessory?

Purses, by far.  I have a lot of jewelry too, but purses are my favorite because they always fit.  Even if I gain or lose a few pounds, my purse always fits and looks fabulous 😉

4.)  What is your favourite T..V show?

I think my favorite depends on the day of the week!  Currently I am loving New Girl, Downton Abbey, and the Americans.

5.)  What is one place in the world you would love to travel to?

Travel has been a big part of my adult life, and I love exploring new places!  So far I have checked off the big places I was dying to visit, but there are so many other good places!  How do you choose?  I really have a desire to go to Africa.  I’m not sure I can narrow it down anymore than that, because really you could spend a lifetime traveling Africa, and it all sounds amazing!

6.)  What person has had a major influence on your life.  Why?

Oh man this may be a tie– my grandpa, who passed away when I was 12, and my mom, who is my best friend.  My grandpa was the kindest, gentlest man in the world and he spoiled me rotten.  He also taught me that school was important and I could do anything I set my mind to!  My mom is the strongest and most selfless person I know.  I mean, she runs marathons and has completed a half ironman!

7.)  What movie do you think everyone should watch?

I don’t know if I think everyone should watch it, but I have seen Garden State at least 100 times.  No joke.

8.)  If you had the chance to travel to space, would you do it?

Only if I wouldn’t have to be in a tight box.  Even then, I am not sure I could do it because I am so claustrophobic!

9.)  Do you have any pets?  Tell us about them if you do!

Yes, and if you follow me on instagram, you will already know all about her because 90% of my pictures are of her!  We have a corgi named Sasha.  She is the sweetest, smartest dog ever.  Seriously, even people who claim to hate dogs (seriously, what’s that about?) fall in love with her.  We rescued her three years ago, but we really are the ones who lucked out to find her.

10.)  Describe yourself using only one word.

Only one word??  That’s so hard!  I guess I would say….. “complicated.”  haha 🙂

    Hi Jessi! Thanks for nominating me for the Liebster Award 🙂 I’ve never been nominated before & I’m excited to answer the questions next week. This is one of my favorite things about blogland – getting connected with other bloggers!

    Africa would be an awesome adventure! I traveled to Tunisia when I was 9, but it is more Mediterranean-Africa than Safari-Africa, & I’d love to go back to see the savanna. Also, I hope you’ll post a picture of your quilt when it’s done!

      I would love to go to Tunisia! I studied French in high school and college, so I have always been interested in the Francophone countries! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
