Blog Award

2017 Liebster Award

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

When I saw my name under Jessica’s nominees over at Exceptionally-Ordinary I was soooo happy! I couldn’t stop smiling! When I started this blogging journey, I would have never guessed my blog would even be mentioned in the same sentence as award! I feel so honored! Thank you very much Jessica!

I connected with Jess on a Facebook group board for blogging moms and I am so glad I did! After exploring her blog, I came to love her “everyday is a gift” attitude and her tips and tricks for staying on a budget! I love connecting with other bloggers.


Questions Jess asked me:

  1. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why? I think I would live in Hawaii. I love the warm water, sunshine and sand.
  2. What do you like the least about your life? I don’t like when my husband or son are unhappy.
  3. How does your “dream” of blogging compare to the “reality” of it? Blogging is a lot more work than I thought it would be. A lot of hours spent on the computer.
  4. What do you enjoy the most about your business? I enjoy getting to write about whatever I want.
  5. What would you say is the biggest challenge you have faced as a small business owner, and blogger? Time management. I don’t like ignoring my son being on the computer for hours.
  6. Harry Potter, or Twilight? Harry Potter!
  7. If you could change one thing about your past, what would it be? (Be completely honest) I’m a strong believer in everything happens for a reason, so I wouldn’t change a thing.
  8. Which is your favorite book, and why? *Hint: Does not have to be business related! My favorite book is The Host by Stephanie Meyers. It makes you look at souls and bodies in a whole new way.
  9. What is your best childhood memory, and why? Some of my best memories are going to horse shows with my mom and sisters. We always had so much fun and I learned a lot!
  10. What is your utmost guilty pleasure? (Mine are books, and crafts 😀 ) I love to eat ice cream. Lots and lots of ice cream!
  11. Who let the dogs out? Who Who.

The 2017 Liebster Award’s saying is “Discover New Blogs!” and I want to do just that! Supporting other small blogs makes me feel so good because I know how happy it makes me to receive support 🙂

With that being said, I want to nominate
