Liebster Award

My friend London at A London Review nominated me for a Liebster award. And I think the ladies over at Potlucks on the Porch nominated me a little while ago, but I totally forgot to post when they did!

1. What do you love most about blogging?

I like documenting my every day life like a journal, and being able to also add photos and be creative with it. I've also met quite a few people through blogging/instagram which I would not have expected when I first started to blog.  It has also been fun to get to know people that way.
2. How did you get inspired to blog?
Usually just my day to day life.  Most days are not very exciting, so I try to find interesting things and beauty in my day to day life.
3. What is your favorite type of breakfast cereal?
Life! I buy tons of cereal but always go through my boxes of Life first.  Almost as soon as I run out I buy more. I never seem to get tired of it.
4. Shoes or Sandals?
Shoes.  I do not have cute feet.
5. Chocolate or Vanilla?
Vanilla ice cream, chocolate pudding.
6. What is your favorite book, TV show, or movie?
I love Harry Potter, and I try to reread the series every couple of years.  I'm also love competition tv shows.  Project Runway and Top Chef are my favorites.
7. Name one of your guilty pleasures.
Reality tv shows.  When it comes to tv I'm easily entertained and if you let me I could watch for hours.  It's bad.
8. What is your biggest fear?
I hate parasites and worms.  I've seen too many weird medical shows about people getting them.
9. What are you most proud of?
This isn't meant to sound conceited but I am proud of my life! Jensen and I have been able to get a nice home together, and I'm proud of our relationship.
10. What is your dream job?
An interior designer
11. What blog do you just HAVE to read?
A Cup of Jo
Emily Henderson
A Beautiful Mess
11 facts about me
1. In fourth grade a boy in my class named Zack asked me to "go steady". I had no idea what going steady meant and I told him no.  (Even if I knew what it meant I'm pretty sure I would have said no)
2. I hope so bad that I will have twins some day.
3. I wear men's deodorant.
4. I hate when people use the word literally wrong... like "my head literally exploded" or "I literally died."  No, no you did not.
5. My birthmark is on my bum.
6. I have lived in both Hawaii and Alaska.
7. Since I was a little girl my family has 9 had cats.  Sweety, Prissy, Sassy, Lightening, Kitty, Sammy, Samantha, Kitty, and my kitty I have now Pigeon.
8. I was voted most unique in high school.
9. I am super forgetful/clumsy. I've locked myself out of my house twice (and have only lived here 3 months), I dropped and broke my new phone after having it for less than an week, I accidentally elbow Jensen in the face far too often (apparently I can't quite tell where my elbows are when I'm stretching or reaching for things), and I lose my phone/keys/charger/ipad approximately 27 times a week.
10. I was a portrait model for a painter in Provo for a few months.  I yawned a lot while I sat in the chair very still.  Then he asked me if I would be comfortable posing nude (nope!), and I haven't worked for him since.  This is a coincidence (I think :) ). He has talked about having me work for him again, but our timing never works out.
11. I am terrible at remembering what happens in movies. And I hate the "guess what movie this quote is from game", probably because I'm so terrible at it.  I also fall asleep half the time I watch a move (even in the theater).  That might have something to do with it...
