About the award: Liebster is German for sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing & welcome.This award is passed from Blogger to Blogger. It’s an award for bloggers with under 200 subscribers & is to encourage each other that they are doing a great job & to keep it up! Sweet right?
Along with the award, there are 11 questions that were asked (just realized I answered the wrong ones, but I'm just going to leave it as my kiddos are going crazy for some attention now) to help your readers get to know you better. Here are my answers below:
1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging in 2009 after I had my first child as a way to connect to the outside world as a stay-at-home-mom. I had a huge passion for decorating, organizing, sewing…really anything creative & I wanted to connect with other people with the same interests.
2. What is your favorite book?
Hmm…besides the B-I-B-L-E? Probably,
Where is God When it Hurts by Phillip Yancey,
Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud & Dr John Townsend,
ok & non self help: the Harry Potters,
…you know, all those.
3. What makes you laugh out loud?
My husband. He's is hilarious:
4. Who or what inspires you? This can be blog-related or not.
I'm inspired by godly women who are also humble & transparent. Several women come to mind. Here are two:
Evelyn Stilwell. Besides my own mother, no other woman has had a greater impact on my life. She is the Proverbs 31 woman & she lives her life poured out for others.
Michelle Duggar. I love the gentleness in her parenting, but also her non-judgmental spirit.
5. Who would play you in a movie?
Staci Keanan probably looks the most like me?
6. How long have you been blogging?
June 2009 - 4 Years off & on
7. What time of the day do you write?
Usually during nap time or after the kids are in bed.
8. What is the most annoying song in the universe?
Hmm…Anything by Weird Al or Barney?
9. What part of your home is your favorite?
My Master Suite. It's the reason we bought the house. My bedroom is large enough to have an office in without being crowded. Our master bath is large enough to have to whole family in without being crowded. It has a whirlpool tub and I love all of the finishes & hardware. The closet is one of the biggest ones I have ever seen & you can hear NOTHING when you are in there with the door shut. I don't have great pictures on them yet, but here are some little bits to give you an idea.
10. What is your favorite recipe?
11. What is your favorite season?
Right now FALL sounds amazing, but what I really think lately is every season except summer! Hate being out in the heat unless I have a pool or an ocean to jump into.
