I Won an Award!

Actually two!

Two lovely lovely ladies have nominated me for the Liebster blog award!

How sweet is that?!  

Sinead from Sinead in the Sun and Alexis from Living the Christian WifeStyle each nominated me.

This is what it is:

"The Liebster award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome."
-Adrian

Then you have to:
1. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 5 questions for the people you've tagged to answer.
2. Choose 5 people and link them in your post
3. Go to their page and tell them.
4. No tag backs!

Now I'm pretty sure these two amazing girls followed slightly different Liebster blog rules so I'm gonna do a little mix of both.  I'm just going to answer the questions they left me and then tag 5 of my favorite bloggers! :)  Otherwise this would be a super long post.

So here we go:


Alexis's Questions:

Christian WifeStyle

1. What is your favorite part about blogging?
My favorite part about about blogging is all the amazing people I've had the infinite pleasure to meet because of my little space on the web. Seriously y'all are all amazing women and I'm so glad to know each of you!

2. Where is your dream vacation?
My dream vacation would be an all inclusive trip to England.  I want to visit all the major cities, visit all the major landmarks, and eat any and every where I want.  This would include having afternoon tea EVERY DAY!

3. What was the first blog you started reading?
The very first blog I started reading was one of my best friends blog.  Her name is Whitney and she blogs over at Writing on a Whim.  Then through her, I stumbled on the other blogs that I still follow today.  She was my first inspiration to start my own blog though! 

4. What is your favorite piece of jewelry that you own?
Favorite piece of jewelry is the ring my mom gave me for graduating college.  She had is custom made by a family friend.  The diamonds in the ring were all owned at one point by either my mom or my two grandmothers.  I NEVER take it off and I'm excited to have something to one day pass on to my daughter.

5. What is your favorite beauty product?
Favorite beauty product is Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara.  Mascara is one thing that I NEVER leave the house without.  And Last Blast gives great thick cover that literally makes my lashes look crazy long and thick! Love it.


Sinead's Questions:



1. What is your Favourite Holiday?
My favorite holiday is Christmas.  I love the decorations, the food, the clothes we get to wear, the fact that family and friends get together, and of course presents! :)

2. What is the best book to movie adaptation you have watched? 
I think Pride and Prejudice is one of the best book to movie adaptations.  I wasn't disappointed with the movie in the least (which I can't say for many of the others).  I love watching that movie.  It was beautifully done and the music is fantastic! 

3. If you could meet anyone famous, who would it be?
Easy, Kate Middleton. Oh excuse me, I mean Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge.
I just adore everything about her.  

4. What is you favourite Perfume?
Burberry London.  
I have not had it for like a year now and I'm starting to have serious withdrawals.

5. How would you react to a Zombie Apocalypse?
Haha, um.  I like to think I would try and kick some Zombie ass. But honestly I would probably find a basement to hide in until some hunky hero comes to save me. 

6. What is your favorite quote from a Kids Book?
"The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."  -Places You Will Go, Dr. Suess.
This is one of my favorite children's books and was the inspirations behind my blog title.

7. Heels or Flats?
I would LOVE to be able to say heels, but I just don't wear heels as much I would like.
So, I'll go with flats.

8. If you could give truth serum to anyone on the planet right now, who would it be and why?
Um...I honestly don't wanna say on the blog right now.  
I have some stuff going on that I'm just not ready to talk about on the blog.
Yet.

9. What are 5 words that describe you?
Friendly, honest, hard-working, blonde, and caring.

10. What is the weirdest dream you have ever had?
When I was in high school I had a recurring dream with a faceless man.  
I never saw his face.
From time to time I still have it, but I have no idea what he looks like. Weird.

11. What era would you have loved to live in?
Either the 1800s or the 1930s and 1940s.
I'm obsessed with these eras.  And I firmly believe I should have been born in either of them.


Well that was fun! 

Here are my 5 nominees:

Leanne - Simply Beautiful
Courtney - Courtney's Organized Chaos
Jackie- Wine Down
Whitney- Writing on A Whim
Nicole - Life as a Newlywed 

And your questions:

Which store is your all time favorite?
If you could change your name, would you? To what?
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
What is your favorite nail polish color?
If you could trade lives with another blogger, who would it be?

Alrighty, again a HUGE HUGE thank you to Alexis and Sinead.
