The Liebster Blog Award

This past Saturday, I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award from Meghan at Crazy Casa K! In case you are like me and not sure what this award is for, read on.

The Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers by bloggers. It is a way to acknowledge each other and say “you’re doing a great job.” It is for blogs with 200 or less followers, so it’s also a great way to spread the word about smaller blogs and get them more readers and followers! When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person(s) who nominated you. You pass the Award onto 11 other blogs (make sure you tell them you nominated them!) and ask them 11 questions. You’re not allowed to nominate the blog(s) who nominated you!

I figure this is a great way for my newer followers to get to know me a bit better and for me to share some blogging love!

11 random facts about me:

1. I have my motorcycle licence. I would love to own a motorcycle someday but probably not until after my kids are grown.

2. I love country music but have everything from Disney to Eminem on my iPod.

3. My birthstone is orange topaz (November) but I think its ugly so I have adopted pink tourmaline (October) as my birthstone instead.

4. My first car was a Ford Explorer Sport.

5. I wore braces for 4 years!

6. I can count the number of times I have flown on one hand.

7. I am listening to the sound of white noise coming from 2 baby monitors right now and that sound puts me right to sleep most nights.

8. I have a wicked sweet tooth but I also love salty foods, especially fried pickles!

9. I lost my licence in Las Vegas while there for a bachelorette party...not the best place or time to do that!

10. I hate doing the dishes but I love how clean my house feels when they are done.

11. When I find a piece of clothing that I like, I usually buy multiples just in different colors.

11 questions from Crazy Casa K:
1. What kinds of blogs do you enjoy reading? I really enjoy reading photography, DIY and mommy blogs

2. What is your favorite book? This is a hard one because I love to read but right now I am going to go sappy and say The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. To see all of my favorites, check out my
reading list

3. What songs would be on the soundtrack to your life? Making Memories of Us by Keith Urban, this was the song my husband and I danced to at our wedding.

4. Most embarrassing moment? I think I must have blocked them out because I can't think of any besides holding a sign upside down when I was a cheerleader in high school. I'm sure there must have been others though that were more embarrassing.

5. Why did you start blogging? I started blogging in March 2011 and only blogged for a couple of months and it was a place that I shared tips on saving money without compromising too much how you live your life. I started back up again in April 2012 with a new name and a new purpose. My blog is now about my life as a wife and a stay at home mom. I love to share my tutorials and how I am trying to improve my photography skills. I have been going strong since this change and see no end in sight!

6. What Olympic sport would you win a gold medal in (in a perfect world)? In a perfect world it would be in gymnastics but I tried that and was never any good at it. I was much better at the long jump and triple jump when I did track in high school.

7. What motivates you? The feeling of accomplishment that I get when I finish something.

8. Perfect Vacation Spot (I need some ideas!)? Honestly, I love Disney World! I would love to travel up (or down) the west coast someday though.

9. If you could meet any famous person (artist, writer, actor etc.) who would you choose? Most of the ones on my list are country music artists, today I will say Miranda Lambert, she seems like she would be fun to hang out with.

10. What song gets stuck in your head that you just can't get out? (it's there again, isn't it?) Songs from my kids toys, grrr! I find myself singing or humming them as I try to fall asleep at night.

11. Favorite National Park? :) Acadia National Park of course!
