Leibster Award

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

I was recently nominated by Ashley for the Leibster Award! Thanks for the nom, Ashley - be sure to go check out her blog and say hi :)

I haven't ever done a "get-to-know-me" question and answer post so I was really excited when Ashley nominated me. I plan to do a round of "facts about me" on my birthday in July so stay tuned :)

1/ Where is your favorite place to vacation?
My favorite vacation spot is Hilton Head Island in SC. My family has been going there just about every year since I was a baby - I have so many sweet memories from the Island. Usually we go with our family friends from TN and always have a blast. This year, Stephen gets to experience it for the first time!

2/ Do you have one book you recommend us to read?
The Bible

3/ What is your nemesis? 
Puke... I seriously can't. I don't know what I'm going to do when Stephen gets sick or when I have kids... I'll get over it sometime. I feel like George (in this video) anytime someone around me is going to get sick.

4/ What is your favorite part of the day?
When I come home and get to see Stephen :)

5/ Tell us your biggest to-do on your bucket list.
Buy a house... can't wait for this one to happen but who knows when.

6/ What is your favorite beauty product?
I'm trying to get better with makeup but right now, it's my foundation and mascara. I don't use any specific type of mascara - just whatever wand looks neat and my foundation is Neutrogena. Those are two makeup items I rarely leave the house without.

7/ Have you been keeping up with the Master's this weekend? If so, who are you cheering on?
I have not.. it's not as much fun watching it without my dad so I really only ever watch golf with him. I am cheering for Rory Mcllroy - he is my boy in golf!

8/ If you could hold/be around/pet one animal/reptile without it harming you, what would it be?
I just die when it comes to Mini-dachshunds... they are so stinking adorable. I.can't.even. when I'm around those little guys.

9/ What is your favorite hobby or thing to do in your free time?
I don't have anything specific but I love spending time doing whatever with Stephen - traveling, playing tennis, riding bikes, watching TV, walking around daydreaming, anything really!

10/ Why did you start blogging?
I LOVE to follow other people's blogs and wanted to join in on the fun :) also, our families don't live near us so it's a way to keep them updated and document everything. Looking back on it, I wish I started blogging sooner so I could capture our engagement and wedding but oh well.

11/ Do you have any pets? Introduce them to us!
Stephen and I don't have any pets but my family still has our dog that we got for Christmas in 1999. She's a miniature beagle and is the cutest thing in the world but she's a SUPER stinker... she enjoys spending her days terrorizing my mom ;)
