Leibster Award!

I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Marsha over at Bespeckled SparrowWhat is the Liebster Award you ask?  Well it is a way for bloggers to get to know each other as well and introduce them to the blogger community by way of an interview of sorts.  You answer questions by the blogger who nominated you and in turn nominate others and ask them your own questions.  Since you can't nominate the person who nominated you it gives you a good excuse (as if you need one!) to go on the prowl for fresh new blogs.

Just make sure you...

- Thank and link back to the blogger that nominated you
- Answer their 11 questions in your post
- Pick 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers on Bloglovin to nominate
- Think of 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate to answer
- Tag your nominees and comment on one of their posts to let them know!

Now for the questions! 

1. What is one song that can always make your day better no matter what? 
Right now it's probably Drunk in Love by Beyoncé! She is my woman. 

2. If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
Chicken, chicken, & more chicken. 
Did I mention I love chicken? 

3. Name one thing that drives you absolutely off the wall. 
Right now I'm in my Junior year of college & what irritates me is when other students constantly argue with the professor or choose to be crazy in class. Grinds my gears. Please, shut ya mouth. 

4. Favorite pass time? 
Eh, that's a toughy. I'm constantly keeping myself busy. So when I do have time to do something I like, I usually take a nap instead. But if I'm not naping, I love to doodle & read blogs and just hang out. Sip some wine. You know. The usual. ;) 

5. What's something that every time you see it, you are taken back to your childhood? 
When I was a little girl, my favorite person was my grandmother. We would constantly be together up until she passed away. I was 7 when she passed. So it was pretty rough. Any time we would hang out we would make a crap ton of cinnamon rolls. & I would eat all but two. One for her & one for my grandpa. So anytime I see a cinnamon roll, I'm taken back. 

6. What movie can you watch over and over again?
I have two. Pitch Perfect & Bridesmaids. 

7. Favorite season and why?
I flip back and forth between summer & fall. We have a lake house, a boat, etc so I love summers at the lake! But at the same time it's soooo hot here in Oklahoma. So I love fall. I love tall boots. Everything about it. 

8. Favorite blog? 
I absolutely love Little Baby Garvin. I have followed along with her blog since before her little Harper was born & now she's pregnant again with another little girl. I love how she shares her creativity and adventures with her little & makes me more excited for my time with my future (nonexistent) littles. 

9. What's the most ridiculous YouTube video you have ever watched? 

10. If you could go back in time & give your younger self advice, what would you say? 
Always always always listen to momma & daddy. Momma always always always knows best. Although I like to argue that with her ;) 

11 - Why did you start blogging and what drives you to create new content?
I actually started blogging back in high school with a couple of friends. I really enjoyed it but I just stopped paying attention to the blogosphere. I honestly didn't even really know how to do anything. The thing that stinks is that I don't have a theme that I go by. I'm not married, don't have a boyfriend, don't have children, so I'm kind of on my own when it comes to coming with ideas. I'd love to lie to you & tell you it's easy to come up with content but I struggle here & there. 


Drum roll please.....
The nominees are... 

Here are your questions:

1. What is your idea of a perfect date?
2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
3. What is your absolute favorite dessert?
4. Who are some people you would like to meet someday?
5. What are somethings that make you really happy?
6. Do you like things planned out or are you spontaneous?
7. Who in your life has influenced you the most & why?

  1. Thanks so much for the nom, Desirae! I can't wait to get this up on the blog and find some other new blogs to share the love with!

  2. Oh my goodness, Beyoncé is the best! We are in total agreement ;)
