Liebster Award

I would like to say THANK YOU Becky over at A Girl and Her Sparkles for nominating me for the Liebster award! This award is to recognize new blogs that currently have less than 200 followers. And that is the truth. I am a new blogger and I am still "getting my feet wet". But I am always so honored to be nominated for awards and for getting to meet new blog friends through participating in awards nominated for along with link-ups.


1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Answer the 11 questions given by the blogger who nominated you.
3. Nominate 11 bloggers and give them questions to answer.

Becky's questions for me:

1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging as a way to meet other gals when I first moved to Charlotte and as a way for me to "document" my daily adventures...something I would love to look back on over the years!

2. What is your next blogging goal?
My next blogging goal would be to do more OOTH and fashion posts...once I get my new DSLR camera of course ;)

3. Where is your favorite place to shop?
I love to shop at Target and Old Navy for sweaters and basic tee's. For shoes, I'm always able to find something at DSW. For dresses, skirts and more formal attire, I love Shopbop, Nordstrom Rack, and Lulu's (online).

4. What is your favorite piece of clothing?
I could not live without my  7 for All Mankind 'The Slim Cigarette' Stretch Jeans. The literally are most comfortable jeans I have ever worn and come in the perfect color.

5. What holiday gets you most excited?
I will always be a fan of Thanksgiving and New Years. I love celebrating life and family and reflecting on all the things I am thankful for and have to look forward to in the future.

6. What book could you read over and over again?
This question was an easy one for me. Hands down I can read Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson over and over again.

7. What is the blog that you read the most and why?
As bad as this might sound, I don't have just ONE blog that I read the most...there are about 5-10 that I check out each and every day! Read back on recent post here on some of my everyday reads and favorites.

8. What are your hobbies?
I LOVE traveling and exploring new places with Will, spending time with friends and family, curling up on the couch with my pup, photography, crafting and blogging!

9. What are three random facts about yourself?
I am TERRIFIED of spiders; fact and real. I love the smell of coffee so much that sometimes I will brew a cup of coffee JUST to have the smell lingering around the room. I already have baby names picked out for when Will and I have kids (or adopt).

10. What is your worst Pinterest fail?
My Pinterest fail would be the fact that I pin more things then actually attempting at creating the things I pin to my boards...

11. What is one of your daily rituals?
Each and everyday I have to have a made bed before going to work and I can't start my work day before reading a devotional of some sort.

I nominate the following for the Liebster award:

Alyssa over at The Lesson Plan Diva 
Bailey Jean over at Anchored in Love 
Victoria over at Happily Ever Strader 
Laura Virginia over at Meet Virginia
Chelsea over at The Kebs
Victoria over at Anchored by Faith
Emily over at Eloquently Emily
Elise over at Cheers Y'all
Morgan over at New Found Love

My questions:

1. What is your favorite childhood book?

2. How would you describe your style?

3. What is your favorite season (Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall)?

4. What is the one piece of jewelry you cannot live without?

5. What is your favorite color?

6. What is something you have never done but want to do?

7. What is something that people misinterpret about you? 

8. What kind of blogs do you enjoy reading?

9. Do you have any favorite hair or makeup products?

10. What is your workout routine (if you have one)?
