So, I was nominated for the Liebster Award. This is my first time doing a linkup like this so I am sure to screw it up royally, but here goes nothing. Thanks for finding & including me, Katie! You can find her fun blog here!

This is what they told me – seems I can be a bit of a follower.


What is the Liebster Award you ask?
It’s just a fun way of finding new blogs and connecting with other bloggers.
If nominated you need to do a blog post with the following:
1. Accepting the award
2. Answer the questions set by the blogger who nominated you.  (comment on your nominators blog with your blog link)
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers for the award and comment on their blog letting them know they’ve been nominated.
4. Set 11 questions of your own for the nominees to answer.
5. Place the Liebster Award Badge on your post.
badge. done.
now for the fun.
1. Why do you blog?
to share my story. to connect with other people in an effort to learn, grow, help. to fill and be filled.
to feel the void that comes with being a stay at home mom- i want to contribute to society, be apart of the real world.
2. What do you order when going to a coffee shop?
morning- Americano with a splash of cream and one Splenda.
afternoon- 2 shots of espresso on ice with a splash of cream and one Splenda.
(keeps the calories in check and you still get the boost! plus, it makes me feel like a bonafide coffee drinker.)
3. What is your favorite current TV show?
LOST! we just started the series on Netflix and I am loving it.
But am superrrr excited for Greys and New Girl to come back this month.
4. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
wine country.
5. What is one of your biggest dreams?
to use my story to help another.
6. Are you a cold or warm weather person?
warm – with a tall glass of ice water on the side.
7. Introvert or Extrovert?
8. Favorite thing to do on the weekends?
spend full days with both of my boys!
9. What is your favorite thing about yourself?
i have these ridiculously long legs that i hatedddd growing up (think 8th grade dance and boys that barely hit your shoulder). but now that i am a mom and have gained some poundage, they really help give the illusion that im not so big.
10. What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
meat and potatoes. oh, not the right answer? granola and greek yogurt for sure. ;)
11. What is your go to outfit for a lazy day?
in the house- robe.
out of the house- cut off high-waisted jean shorts and a Target tee. rainbows or toms.
Now, off to find 11 other newish bloggers. If I nominate you and you feel like playing, comment on this post so I can read :)

    Your baby boy is beautiful! I love reading these kinds of posts; I’m a new mom so I’m trying to figure it out as I go along and I find these posts so easy to relate to!
