I LOVE the Liebster Award

I had no idea what the Liebster Award was until I received a nomination from Kelly. You, too, may be wondering what the Liebster Award is. The Liebster award is given to up-and-coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. It allows new readers to learn more about the author of each blog. Thanks Kelly!

The Rules:

 1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
3. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 11 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.
5. Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award.
6. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.

11 facts about me: 
1. My relationship with Jesus Christ is the most important relationship I have. 
2. My husband is my best friend.
3. I wish I was able to sing really, really well. 
4. I graduated from Appalachian State University - Go App! 
5. In college, I was a sister in Alpha Phi Fraternity (founded before the word sorority was formed).
6. I am a very cautious person.
7. My favorite color is pink.
8. I played college volleyball for 2 years at Pfeiffer University before transferring to App. 
9. I often have very vivid dreams.
10. I am a body-type specific fashion stylist and everything is done online. (I would like this to become part of my blog, eventually!)
11. I believe we should fall in LOVE with as many things as possible. 

Kelly's Questions: 
1. What's your favorite season? Why?
    Spring. I love the 70 something degree weather, longer days, sundresses and flip-flops.

2. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
    I already live there: Charleston, SC. I live where everyone else vacates! The beach, the city that feels like a small town, a little bit of cold but mainly warm weather...perfect!

3. Where will you be in five years?
    In a house, with another dog, and a baby (God willing). 

4. What is your daily routine like?
    Wake up & fix coffee for both me and my husband, spend time with the Lord, get ready and go to work, work until 5, go to the gym, go to the grocery, shower, cook & eat dinner, watch tv, then go to bed. Repeat.

5. What are some of your favorite hair/ makeup products that you like to use?
    Makeup: anything and everything Bare Minerals. Liquid eyeliner by Covergirl or Maybelline.
    Hair: bobby pins. Still searching for the perfect styling product. 

6. What is your dream job?
    Stay-at-home mom/housewife.

7. What are a few of your vices?
    I have moments of intense fear that cause me to withdraw & seclude myself from perfectly normal situations. Does that make sense? I am sure I have many more vices but am thankful for God's mercy and grace that he has and will forgive me when I slip up.        

8. Name three things on your bucket list.
   Go to San Francisco & Napa Valley (which we are doing in February), have a baby (or two), go to Hawaii

9. What are your top three favorite blogs to read?
     I don't think I could list a top three but I do LOVE to read blogs by people I know personally and Charleston bloggers.
10. Why do you blog?
      It started as something to pass the time and to share what I have fallen in LOVE with. Little did I know I would fall in LOVE with blogging. I enjoy sharing (and receiving) idea's within the blogging community through quotes, music, fashion, food, etc.

11. If you had an entire day to yourself, what would you do?
      If I didn't have any cleaning to do or errands to run I would sit on the beach while reading a good book. I would finish the day by eating pizza and watching a movie. Relaxation at its finest!

11 Questions by me:
1. Why did you start blogging and what keeps you going?
2. If you were given 1 million dollars to spend on yourself, what would you do with it?
3. What are some of your pet-peeves?
4. If there was a movie made about your life, who would you want to play you?
5. What are the top 3 best moments of your life?
6. What is the best advice you've been given?
7. Do you have any hidden talents? If so, what is it?
8. Would you rather have an endless amount of shoes or purses?
9. Who has been the most influential person in your life?
10. Would you rather live in the city or in the country? Why?
11. What is the one thing you want people to remember about you after they meet you?

  1. Love Charleston!
    Great answers!
    Come say hey!

  2. Your welcome girlfriend! Love reading your blog, you totally deserve it :)

    ps - Feeling so fortunate to live in Charleston as well, not too many other places as beautiful as here.

  3. I had never heard of this award before. So cool! I'm pretty sure we need to hang out. All of your answers are almost exactly what my answers would be. And your bucket list?? Omg. I'm dying to go to Napa Valley and suggested it for our honeymoon, but it's going to have to wait because we decided on Hawaii (also on your bucket list). And I can't wait to be a mommy someday :) I too would love to be a stay at home mom.

    1. You should do it! If I would have met you before I wrote this you definitely would have been on my list :) We should hang out! You, me, and Kaitlyn should plan a girls dinner together one day!


Did you fall in love with this too? Let me know!
