Blog Love

So lately I have been super busy with the new job and just life in general, but I can't go without acknowledging all the amazing people giving little old me awards!

I will say this and will say it over and over again.
I have the BEST readers!

So since I had a few nominations, I decided to acknowledge them and answer one question they each had for me.
(Hope you guys don't consider this cheating)

So here it goes:
Liebster Award:

Amy at Little Adventures. She lives in the Bahamas (where I went on my amazing honeymoon). She is super pretty and has a beautiful baby boy.

She asks: Have you ever been to a concert?

Why yes I have. I am just going to list the big concerts I have been to. I have been to a number of little ones (country, rock, indie, ska, pretty much seen it all). Two concerts I had tickets for got cancelled. That was for Evanescence and Nickelback. I was totally bummed about Nickelback because I really actually like them! I did end up getting to see Evanescence with Finger Eleven and Chevelle. I have also seen two American Idol concerts: this season with the winner being Phillip Phillips and the season where Adam Lambert was on. I also have seen Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson (Eric Hutchinson opened for her). 

Amy at One Creative Procrastinating Gal/Color Me Inspired. She has two little adorable kids and stays home with them! She always has something positive to say!

She asks: How long does it take you to get ready to go somewhere special?

Depends on if my crazy thick mane of hair is dry or not. I usually can't get myself looking super special on occasions, but if I truly take a long time to get ready it will be about an hour. Getting ready for my wedding took longer when I got my hair and makeup done. I wish I could do that everyday!

Kim at The K.O. Jewelry. She is super cute and talented with her beautiful jewelry. No worries, there are definitely some pieces I am lusting over! Go check her out for sure!

She asks: What is your favorite sport?

I love swimming. I was a competitive swimmer for many years. I would really like to get back into it! My body was for the better! Other then that I really love to watch NFL football and enjoy seeing my sisters play tennis.

My BFF Tiffany at The Austin Family Diary. I have had so much fun doing this link up with her and was so glad to finally be able to meet her!

She asks: How many kids do you want?

Ideally I want 3. I could do with 2, but three would be perfect. I could go on about wanting 2 girls and 1 boy and features, but I just want beautiful, healthy and happy children with Kevin. (cue the awwws)

Whitney at Sippy Cups and Pearls. She is a super hot mama and finally another person (like me) who is not so fond of summer!

She asks: 100 degrees on the beach of 40 degrees in the mountains?

Well as much as I love beaches, I love cooler weather more. I love skiing every year so I will take that 40 please! (actually that would be really warm for skiing) I just feel like the clothes are cuter and since I have rosacea, I would burn like a critter out on that beach!

Sarah at Whimsical Mumblings. She is a big lover of chocolate like me and lives across the pond! 

She asks: What is your favorite smell?

There are so many good choices! I guess I will just choose one of my favorites: Lilac.

Mary at A Happy Wife In New Orleans. She loves football (and one of her teams is Denver!) and is just super cute and sweet! I am praying for her as Issac effects her hometown.

She asks: What song always makes you happy when you hear it?

Haha her questions were so hard! I could go on and on...I am always happy to hear the NFL theme song! JK! No but really I am happy to hear: You and Me by Lifehouse (my first dance), Lights by Ellie Goulding (was very significant to me before she became famous in the states, and now it is weird hearing her song everyday on the radio), and Everything by Brad Paisley (my husband says it is me to a T)

 Kenzie at Life and Lemons! She is a super hot mama who loves pink and country music! My kinda gal! 

She asks: Have you read any mainstream series (Twilight, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, 50 Shades)? Did you like them? What was your favorite?

I have read Twilight, Hunger Games and Harry Potter. I am not a prude, bbut I don't plan on reading 50 Shades because I don't think it will be good. Out of all of those Harry Potter is my fave! Fun Fact, I have read all Harry Potter books (except for the 7th) in the double digits. ie. I have only read the 7th book I believe 4-5 times. Love them! I thought Twilight was sophomoric writing, but I I enjoyed the story in my head. The movies were utterly terrible due to Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, but to each their own...(I will still see them all!)

Versatile Blogger Award:

Amy from Faith and Hope Abound. She is going through nursing school and truly a sweet girl.

A random fact about yourself: I am so excited to be blogging and to have been blessed to read other people's blogs and know/be a part of their lives as they are in mine. It has been so amazing thus far and I am only getting warmed up!!! :-)

So thank you again awesome readers! And thank you for those who linked up for the 10 day challenge this week (it is still up if you wanna link up!)



  1. this is such a great idea to share it with your readers! love your blog by the way!

  2. I love this! I was reading through your answers and you and I have so much in common! I also prefer cooler weather and the smell of lilac. It's on of my favorites. :-) I love your list of songs as well...I'm always singing along with them when I hear them! :-)

  3. The NFL theme song! I die! You crack me up!

  4. i would take 40 degrees in the mountains as well! 100 degrees is way too hot.

  5. Love your answers! And go you for being nominated by everyone! Haha :)

  6. I just have to say I am super jealous you got to see Evanescence!

  7. Great way to acknowledge and accept all of the award love!! :)

  8. OMG--Ellie Goulding! So cool that you liked her before she was big over here. I have been jamming to her Pandora station ever since I heard Lights. Oh man--soul sisters! And so jealous you got to see my boy Phillip Phillips--he is so amazing and I still get teary eyed when I hear his song Home and remember how emotional he was when he won.

  9. Ah! I feel the EXACT same about Twilight. My husband and I read first book and thought the writing was very sophomoric, too! Didn't finish reading them. Our first date was to the first movie, so we just go see the movies as tradition. We like the story (Team Jacob), but HATE Kristen & Rob's acting. It's awful and awkward. All the secondary characters are much better actors.


Comments make my day!
Thanks for the love <3
