it's a major award.... {w/ blogger awards}


Source: via Kristin on Pinterest

A few things... First, a big THANKS to everyone who follows this blog. I just hit 50 followers! And while that may not be much to some people, it seriously means a lot to me. Second, in thanks for everyone who has followed my little blog, I will be hosting a giveaway very soon. More to come in the next few days. Third, I was recently nominated for a blogger award by my dear friend Katie at Unwritten.

I feel so lucky to be nominated for the Liebster Award. "Liebster" means darling or beloved person in German.

The rules are as follow:

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.

11 Facts:
1. I LOVE the color green.
2. I am very competitive (although most people don’t think so until they play a game with me).
3. I lived in the same house until I was 18.
4. I don’t particularly like cake, but I love cupcakes.
5. I lead a small group of high school girls at my church.
They make me feel young and old at the same time. 
6. I was the captain of my varsity tennis team in high school.
7. My husband and I met at church, nearly 7 ½ years ago. 
8. I am {not-so-secretly} celebrity obsessed.
It is my guilty pleasure.
9. I love the smell of asphalt after the rain. I also just love the rain.
10. I put garlic on {nearly} EVERYTHING.
11. I would love to have my own business… someday.

Katie’s Questions:

1. What was your first car?
A 1996 Forest Green Volvo sedan. We just sold it last year.

2. What is your drink of choice at Starbucks (or anywhere)?
I change it up a lot. In the summer I love unsweetened iced green teas or upside down iced caramel macchiattos. In the cooler months I like vanilla soy lattes or other flavored lattes (lately I’ve been getting Pumpkin Spice but with not as much pumpkin)

3. What is the first thing you do when you turn on your computer?
I check my email. Even though I check it a bunch on my phone throughout the day. Then I go to Blogger. Then Facebook. Then Pinterest.

4. What is your favorite cake? White or Chocolate cake? Or are you a Carrot cake fan?
Well given my random fact #4, I don’t particularly care for cake (even though I bake all the time). But I prefer chocolate cake with vanilla frosting, or red velvet. My husband is a carrot cake person.

5. What is your favorite verse or quote?
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be renewed by the transforming of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is - His good, pleasing, and perfect will.” Romans 12:2

Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.  Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

Romans 12:10-13

6. What song can you listen to over and over again?
Anything by The Shins.

7. Ross, Chandler, or Joey?

That’s a tough one, but probably Chandler. I did name my dog after him.

8. What is a perfect day for you?
Waking up naturally, “pinning” on the couch or in bed while watching t.v., making a delicious breakfast.
Followed by a few hours of crafting, cooking, baking, and/or blogging. Going for a walk with my husband and pup.
An hour at a coffee shop for a little bible study, then meeting up with friends for dinner and game night. A perfect day!

9.Where did you get married/want to get married?
I got married outside at a golf course in northern San Diego. You can read about it here.
It was in front of a gazebo and completely surrounded by flowered hedges.

10. Which do you prefer-Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter?
Fall is my favorite. Along with smiling.

11. What has become your favorite thing about blogging?
I love that it gives me the motivation to try new things and actually do stuff
so I can post about it on my blog.
It’s also been wonderful “meeting” so many great people.
