Liebster 2.0

I am so blessed and honored to have been nominated for the Liebster award again. Not only have I been nominated again, I have been nominated twice in the last month! That's pretty crazy and I am beyond honored that bloggers want to praise me and want others to get to know me! Thank you so much to Jessy from The Artsy Cajun and Donna from Grace & Galoshes both of these ladies are wonderful bloggers and have become great friends and supporters of my blog! Please go check out their blogs. Also, you can read my post from my last Liebster nomination HERE. And just a fair warning, I may get a little long winded with these questions.

First, a little about the Liebster Award:
The word liebster is German for sweetheart or dearest. The award is given to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers who show potential. It is not given by judges or anything like that, but rather it is given by blogger peers based on your blogging personality.

So here is what I get to do now that I have been nominated:
  • Thank your nominator! Include a link back to their blog with your appreciation
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you by your nominator
  • Post 11 facts about yourself
  • Nominate 5-11 other up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers for the award--no tag backs!
  • Come up with your own set of 11 questions for your nominees to answer
  • Let your nominees know you nominated them so they can pass it on
Donna's questions:
  1. Where is your favourite place to eat out? This is a tough one. I just love food so much. I really like all the new places we found since moving here {Piada, Skyline Chili, and Donatos} but I think my favorite is still Panda Express.
  2. What is your favourite social media site? Twitter. I love interacting quickly with blogger friends. I wrote a post about how much I love Twitter HERE
  3. If you could shrink any animal down to pocked sized and keep it as a pet what would you choose? zebra! I have always thought zebras were really cool. I love that they are striped because most animals have lots of variations on coat color and stuff but all zebras are black and white striped.
  4. Who is your favourite TV character? That's another tough one... If I had to pick my all time favorite show, it would probably be Full House so who is my favorite character... well that depends on the season. Ugh this is so hard. lol Ok I'm gonna go with "I don't have one"
  5. What is your favourite name? I used to really like the name Elizabeth but I really haven't given much thought to it in a while. If we have a little girl one day I want to name her Carson because it is sorta a combination of both of our names. Charlene + Pearson = Charson -> Carson. And I like it better for a girl then a boy.
  6. Would you rather never brush your teeth again or never shower? Gross! Neither. If I never showered, could I sponge bathe maybe? I can't stand to go too long without brushing my teeth. It is always the very first thing I do when I get up. So I guess I would rather never shower but that is really gross too!
  7. How would you spend $5,000 right this second? I would buy the Samsung Chromebook I've been eyeing... Then I would probably pay the rest to my student loans to help get them paid off faster.
  8. What do you order when you go out for coffee? Usually a seasonal drink. Pumpkin Spice Latte, Gingerbread Latte etc. But other than that, I like anything caramel.
  9. Do you believe in love at first sight? No. Love is a choice to do everything in your power to make the other person happy even when it is not easy. There is no way someone can make that choice after seeing someone for the first time. I believe people may think they are in love at first sight, but it is not the same thing.
  10. Would you rather own an expensive piece of jewelry or an expensive piece of art? I actually think I would go with the art on this one. I love jewelry but it goes out of style so fast that I don't like spending too much on it. Also, I am less likely to lose or break a piece of art!
  11. How do you relax after a long day? Sometimes I indulge in a bubble bath and a good book, but usually I sit on the couch with my laptop and blog or read while my husband does homework.
Jessy's questions:
  1. What is your driving force in blogging? The community. I love all the friends I have made through this blog and all the support I get from them.
  2. Dogs or cats? Dogs! Hands down!
  3. What is your favorite, go-to bible verse? Isaiah 41:10 "fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
  4. How has blogging changed your life? Again, it's all about the community. I have met so many wonderful women and leaned so much from their life experiences. It's a weird concept for non-bloggers, but I feel like I have known some of these girls all my life.
  5. What is your favorite down-time activity? Reading. Especially fantasy novels.
  6. When you think back, what is your favorite childhood memory? I think that would be going to Disney World with my extended family. We had a lot of fun exploring the parks with the cousins!
  7. How do you balance work, blog, and family? It's hard. I try to only blog when my husband is either at work/school or is doing his own homework. I try to get a lot of blogging done on Saturdays when the hubby has to work and schedule posts for the rest of the week but that is easier said than done!
  8. Favorite song at the moment? "Let it Go" from Frozen
  9. Describe your perfect day? It would definitely involve cuddling, reading, and coffee. Oh and musical movies.
  10. Where would you like to travel next? Really anywhere in Europe! I have never been across the pond and have always dreamed of going. More specifically (but still not very specific), I want to explore Germany, Spain, and Italy.
  11. What is your best piece of advise for new bloggers? Network! Use social media to connect with other bloggers. Get your name out there and make friends by being yourself.
