I was nominated for my first (I think) Liebster by my BFF Miranda.
Here's how it works in case you didn't know...
The Liebster Award is a way for bloggers to celebrate other bloggers. It's passed down from one blogger to another, as long as the blogger has less than 200 followers. If you choose to accept the nomination, here are a few rules to follow:
1. Answer the questions from the person who nominated you.
2. List 10 facts about yourself.
3. Create 10 new questions.
4. Nominate 5-10 bloggers with less than 200 followers.
So, here are the questions Miranda has given me:
1 - Where have you traveled, and which was your favorite place?
I've been to Tennessee, Michigan, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Key West, and the Cayman Islands. My favorite place was probably when I went on my senior cruise. We went to Key West and the Cayman Islands and we had.a.blast! I've always said if we could do it all over again for our 10th year graduation anniversary I would be all over it! However, since it's Valentines Day, I can't leave out the poor Hubs, so my 2nd favorite place was our honeymoon. We had a week in a secluded cabin on the side of a mountain in Gatlinburg and it was SO nice!
2 - What is the biggest hurdle you've had to overcome?
I'm not really sure about this one. I've dealt with personal issues, deaths in the family, etc...but as far as a hurdle I've had to overcome, I've got nothin :\
3 - Who is your best friend and how did you meet?
I've got quite a few really good friends. Of course, my sister :). Then there's Bree and Meredith, both of whom I've been friends with since Kindergarten and we still stay in touch now! And I've also got Miranda. We didn't really hit it off when we first met but now we are super close. She calls us "besties" but that word makes me gag so I refer to us as BFF's.
4 - If you could give one piece of blogging advice what would it be?
Ha! I've got
1 20 followers and I'm lucky to post 2x a week, so you don't want blogging advice from me!
5 - Have you ever met a celebrity? If so, do tell!
Last September, we went to a Corey Smith concert and my husband won us meet & greets so yes, I've met him, if he counts as a celebrity but other than that, nope. I've been to NYC and seen a few of them walking down the streets or we heard that such and such was shopping in a store on 5th Ave but that's it. Oh yeah, I did see Big Boi from Outkast in the Savannah Mall a few years ago.
6 - What is your #1 pet peeve?
No way I can only have 1 pet peeve. First up, the word bestie, I don't like it and I think it should come with an age limit. Haha! Secondly, people who "suck" their teeth after they eat, it grosses me out to no end. Third, misuse of they're, their, and there; want, won't; then, than; you're, your.
7 - Scariest moment in your life?
Well, I'm a worryer so I'm always "scared" something's gonna happen but to pinpoint 1 specific time, again, I've got nothin
8 - Are you where you thought you'd be in your life? Explain.
Yes and no. I knew I always wanted to get married and have kids, but I had no idea I'd be married and have a child at the age of 20. I did want to go to college and get a degree but if I would have done that, I wouldn't have met my husband and we would have our little Livi :)
9 - What is the one thing you can't live without? (Item, not family member)
As bad as it is, my iPhone.
10 - Your all time favorite memory...get creative!
I've got a few:
*Growing up with my cousins. Our summers were so much fun. We didn't have much money but we made the most out of what we did have. We were very creative children.
*Senior year in high school. I went to a VERY small school, but with that comes cliques, however our senior year, our entire class bonded, it was just a blast.
*My wedding day, duh! We didn't have a big wedding but it was perfect for us. Of course there are a few things that I would change (thanks Pinterest!) but it was our day and I loved every aspect of it.
* The day we had Olivia. No explanation needed :)
So there are my answers. I think I only have 1 person that actually reads this little ol blog and she's the one that nominated me so I'm not tagging anyone.
Have a great weekend!!
