Liebster Award

Back in the end of May, I was excited to learn I had been nominated for the Liebster Award from Leila at Experiencing Parenthood! If you have never heard of Experiencing Parenthood you should head over there and check Leila out. She is an Arizona-based Momma to three little humans and she blogs about parenting, family, raising a child with special needs and awesome things to do around Arizona.

If you aren't familiar with the Liebster Award, it's a fun way to get to know new bloggers. You get to find out about their blog, their likes, their dislikes and some other random information. It's like a 2017 chain letter, in which each nominee, should they choose to accept, writes a post answering five questions asked by the blogger who nominated them.

I am so excited to accept this award, not so much to introduce myself, but to introduce you to my nominees. Before we get to that part, I have a few questions to answer from Leila.

The Questions:

1. Do you still live in the same place you were born and raised? If not, where were you born or raised and where do you live now?

No, I do not. I was born and raised in Richmond, VA - I'm an east coast southern girl thru and thru! I married my husband in 2005 and proceeded to move all over the place for several years, he was active duty in the United States Marine Corps! He got out of the military after eight years of service and we spent two years back in Virginia. But, I found a great job opportunity in his hometown, Indianapolis, IN, and since he had been away from his family since he was 19 years old we decided to relocate again. We have lived in Indiana since 2010. Now, with stable careers, a huge family, two little boys and one dog - I don't see use relocating anything soon!

2. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I have SO many places I want to visit! I have never left the United States and I live through bloggers from around the world to see the beauty that is out there. I would love to travel to Scotland, Australia, Peru, etc. At this point in my life, you provide me a round trip ticket and I will be excited to go.

3. What is your favorite beverage to drink?

Sweet Tea. Hands down. 

4. What is your favorite book to read?

This is tough as I just recently got into reading in my down time, which lets be honest is few and far between.The last book I read that I loved and couldn't put down was The Girl On The Train. I would say I love suspense.

5. If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?

I pretty much love my job, I'm a Fraud Investigator. But, if money and insurance wasn't an issue, I would love to open a bakery.

My Nominees

This is the fun part. I've had this blog since 2012, I've come and gone but this year I decided I was going to get back to my passion and bring this blog back to life. Just in the few months that I have been active again this year, I have stumbled across a lovely list of new bloggers. I may have cheated and one or two may have over 200 followers, but, these are my nominations my way - haha! So, without further ado, I nominate the following:

Emily at Fenced in Momma

Questions for the Nominees

1. If you had to pick one song to be the anthem to your life, which song would it be?

2. Are you a planner or a live in the moment kind of person?

3. What is your favorite season and why?

4. What is your 'why' for blogging?

5. If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be?

Thank you again to Leila at Experiencing Parenthood and congratulations to those I nominated, I can't wait to learn more about you!
