Super excited to announce my site has been live for exactly 19 days and I have been awarded for the Liebster Award!
So what is the Liebster Award? The Liebster Award, according to The Global Aussie “is an award that exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.”
For everyone in the non blogger world, It helps connect you to other bloggers while expanding your audience. I want to thank Califfcreations.com for nominating me. She has an amazing family friendly site full of arts and crafts, cooking and just being an amazing parent. You can take my word for it, but I would really suggest you click here to see how awesome her site is for yourself. Don’t forget to subscribe and leave a comment to let her know how much you care.
Read further to see the answers to my nomination questions:
1. What motivated you to start blogging?
I have always played with the idea of blogging. Actually, when I started this site, I found a super old blog post from when I was in middle school about relationship advice. Lets just say it was horrible advice lol. But becoming a mother, I really had a shift in my lifestyle and I felt the need to write down my experiences to help new moms like myself. The world is full of unsolicited parenting advice and “perfect” family moments on social media. But parenting is rough and sometimes ugly and I hope my blog portrays that while saying its okay to not be perfect, but we can do it together.
2. What’s your favorite topic to blog about?
My blog is such an organized chaos of all the thoughts in my head. I really like doing my motivational Monday post because everyone needs a pick me up. But I honestly LOVE writing about my experiences as a mom and the stuff I go through raising my daughter, broken window and all.
3. What is your favorite aspect of your personality?
So I actually asked my husband to help me with this answer since I don’t really think about what I like about myself often. I said I was pretty Punny *wink wink* but he assured me I am not. He did mention my sarcasm, although this seems like a negative, my sarcasm has gotten me pretty far in life. It has also helped me get through some tough situations in life as I use it to create a thicker skin. Besides that, my humor, no matter what my husband says, I’m hilarious.
4. Who/What do you draw upon for your inspiration?
I’m so new to this blogging thing and I have a lot of people I look at to gain writing styles and layout designs. I love Cat & Nat and they were the biggest push for me doing this once I became a SAHM (stay at home mom) my overall biggest inspiration is my family. They are seriously my material for my writing and the biggest “WHY” in life.
5. What’s your favorite food to cook and to eat? (for me it’s two separate things)
I love cooking cheesecakes, its my comfort food or snack. I also like getting together for New Years at my grandma’s house for family Gumbo. Favorite thing to eat is food. I am a foodie and I go back and forth on a favorite but for the most part I filter through pizza, sushi, all types of pasta, hot wings, fries, and tacos.
6. For fun, if you could have dinner with one person alive or dead, who would have dinner with and what would be your first question?
Well since my birthday is coming up and we share a birthday I would have to say Justin Timberlake. Having a drink with him on my birthday is a bucket list item I am 90% sure I’ll never get to cross off. But my first question to him would probably be “How you doin” in my best Joey Tribbiani voice. After that silly moment I would probably ask him what his greatest achievement has been this far.
