Liebster Award

The lovely ladies over at LCDF (La conception des femmes) nominated me for the Liebster blog award. Thanks ladies, you guys rock!

The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcoming.

Here are the rules for receiving this award:
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves
2. Answer the questions the blogger has set for you plus create 11 questions for people you've tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. Remember, no tag backs!

11 things about me

1. I can't wink, I try but it ends up looking more like I have a weird twitch, or like I have something in my eye.
2. I have a gigantic sweet tooth. Seriously, It's bad. I can pass up fast food, and Alfredo sauce, but put something sweet in front of me and I am done for!
3. Running is my exercise of choice.
4. I hate reading. I started Hunger Games last year and I have yet to finish it, not because it wasn't a good book, just because I simply don't like to read.
5. If I could change one thing about me it would be my arms.
6. I'm a sucker for celebrity gossip and reality TV
7. My current TV obsession is Pretty Little Liars. Don't judge me, it's really good, and adicting
8. I love to bake, but I don't like to cook.
9. I worry way too much. If my husband isn't home from work when he normally is I immediately think the worst. We joke that I am like the mom from Little Giants who wraps her son up in bubble wrap to play football (I hope you all know what movie I'm talking about), the funny thing is, I'm actually tempted to do that sometimes.
10. Foot massages are pretty much my favorite thing ever! I don't think my husband had ever rubbed feet before he met me, but he is now a pro!
11. I hate being late to things. It doesn't matter what it is, I get all panicky if we are not on time.

LCDF's Questions

1. Name 3 or 4 pieces of your wardrobe that best define your personal style. The first would definitely be a Target boyfriend v-neck T, they are so comfy and fit great. Next would be my brown Carlos Santana Unity boots, I love them and they go with so many things! Last would be my gray Hudson jeans, and H&M dark skinny jeans.

2.What are your go-to beauty products? Neutrogena make up remover wipes, Eucerin Calming cream (this stuff is great in the dry winter months), Milani eye touch extreme liquid eye liner.

3. What is a typical day like for you? I normally get woken up by little man around 6:30, and get him breakfast while I check out blogs and do my own blog post. Then we get Husband off to work and go for a jog. Then it's play time, which could also consist of going to the park or watching Mickey Mouse. Next, it's time to eat lunch followed by nap time. During nap I'll clean the house and do some more blog stuff. When baby wakes up we'll go run errands that need to be done. Then I'll make dinner (on a good day) and eat when hubs gets home. Finally I get the baby ready for bed, and after I put him down spend some quality time with the hubs and our favorite TV shows.

4. How did you decide to start blogging?
I stopped working after I had the baby and after a few months I started needing more to do. Starting a blog was perfect because it keeps me busy while allowing me to stay home with the little guy, plus I don't feel like my college education is going to waste.

5. From which store would you most like to win a shopping spree? Oooh Anthropology. But, since I should be a responsible mother now then I would have to say Target, I could do some serious damage there.

6. Is there a celebrity whose closet you would like to raid? Yes, that would be Kate Middleton and Jennifer Aniston.

7. What is your signature color? Probably blue, and pink. I like using blue in interiors because it can be considered a neutral, and I wear a lot a pink.

8. Aside from blogging, what are a couple of your favorite hobbies? Spending time with my family is a big one. I also love baking and shopping.

9. When you feel a lack of creativity, where do you go to recharge? Or what sites/people do you draw inspiration from? Pinterest is a big one, shocker right? I also love looking at other blogs, you ladies are so talented. And Houzz is full of great inspiration as well.

10. What does your man/friends/important people think of your blogging? My husband thinks its a great idea and my mom thinks I'm awesome!

11. How do you blog more efficiently and how do you streamline your workflow? I really would not consider myself a very efficient blogger, but one thing that makes it a little easier is to do my posts at night. I don't always do this, but when I do I can spend more time making it look and sound better because I don't have little fingers trying to help me.
