I’ve Been Nominated For A Liebster Award!
What is the Liebster Award????
The Liebster Award is an online award to recognize new bloggers. It helps to gain exposure, and build relationships with other fellow new bloggers.
How Does it Work????
New Bloggers are nominated by a fellow blogger and asked a series of questions. The rules are, if you choose to accept the award, you then must thank the blogger who nominated you. Answer the questions that are asked, and then find five other blogs and ask them your own series of question.
I love this idea and I think it’s a great way to learn about other bloggers and make connections!
So without further ado I would like to Say a HUGE thanks to Lana from Lana Lou Who Blog for the nomination!
I would also like to nominate:

Ashley @ Penny 4 Our Thoughts
Denise @ Beauty Beyond The Scale
Rachel @ Engineering A Joyful Family
1. WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?
I love trying new things and products and sharing with others. I thought starting a blog would be a great way to express my opinion, and also learn from others. I also went from working full time to being a stay at home mom, and wanted something to keep me busy while the kids were napping.
2.WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE HOBBY (ASIDE FROM BLOGGING!)?
I am a licensed Cosmetologist, and like to do hair for friends and family on the side, when I have time. For some reason I always work better with other people’s hair than my own. I’m also a Licensed Practical Nurse, but since staying home full time, thankfully I don’t use that skill much… other than the occasional band aid on a boo boo. 🙂
3. WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE IN 5 YEARS TIME?
Hopefully I’m still a SAHM . I love being able to spend my days with the kids. There are days when I miss working full time, but overall I wouldn’t change a thing. I would also love to grow my blog, and hopefully within the next couple months, I can move from Blogspot, with my own domain, and a new design!
4.WHO IS YOUR INSPIRATION?
My inspiration would have to be my mom, who sadly passed away in 2006. She always seemed to manage to do so many things effortlessly, and showed so much courage during her long battle with cancer. She was one of the most unselfish people I know, and loved to help others. She also had a love for makeup and fashion, which I also love!
5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BLOG AND WHY?
This is a hard one because I really have so many, but I would have to say one of my favorites, and one I’ve been reading the longest is The Small Things Blog. She was a former cosmetologist, and is now a full time blogger and SAHM. She post amazing how to videos on makeup and hair on YouTube and her blog. She also has two cute adorable little boys! She’s pretty funny, and seems totally relatable and down to earth.
6. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK? Honestly, I haven’t had much time to read a book in awhile. When I do, I usually read “How To” books or some type of parenting book.
7.WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
I have a very caring nature and love to help others, which can also be a fault sometimes when I neglect my own needs.
8. DO YOU HAVE ANY KIDS AND/OR PETS?
I have 3 kids age 16, 4, 14 months, and we are expecting another in October. We don’t have any pets. I love animals, but our house is pretty full as it is at the moment. 🙂 Maybe when the girls are a little older and can help take care of them.
9. WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?
Lately in my free time I’ve enjoyed blogging and interacting with others on social media and learning new things. I also enjoy just hanging out with the family, watching movies, and making Pinterest fails with my daughter, and occasionally baking.
10. IF YOU WERE STUCK ON A DESERT ISLAND AND COULD ONLY HAVE 3 THINGS WHAT WOULD THEY BE?
My family ( can that count as one?), matches, and a raft or boat of some kind.
Thanks again @lanalouwho for the nomination! I had so much fun answering the questions and love meeting and learning about other fellow bloggers! 🙂
