the one and only liebster award...

Well hello there guys! I'm extremely excited to be writing this post! I WAS NOMINATED FOR A LIEBSTER AWARD!!! By the lovely Jessica at Forever Convinced! I've been loving her blog so it's crazy to think she nominated me! I'm so thankful! (was that enough exclamation points for you?) 

So the Liebster Award comes with a few rules:
1. Thank you nominator with a link back on your Liebster post.
2. Answer the 11 question given to you by your nominator, give 11 random facts about yourself, and come up with 11 questions for your nominees.
3. Nominate 5-11 other bloggers and contact them letting know they have been nominated.

Jessica's Questions for Me:

1. When did you first start blogging and why did you decide to become a blogger?
I first started blogging just about three months ago and it has been the best 3 months ever! I decided to become a blogger because I needed an outlet to write. It has become way more than that and I'm so thankful.
2. What is something awesome Jesus has done in your life lately?
God was so gracious to allow me to go to bible college in a few short months. I can't wait for you guys to come on this journey with me. I know God has some amazing things in store.
3. How you describe yourself in 6 words or less?
Silly. Coffee Drinking. God Lover 
4. What is something you have never done that you always have wanted to do?
Visit the bridge in Paris with all the locks. Yes, I'm lame and I don't know what it is called. (dear future hubby, look no further for honeymoon options) 
5. If you could go to any concert you wanted for free, which one would you go to and why?
Michael Buble', no doubt in my mind. 
6. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 
Living in a cute apartment decorated by Pinterest, with a job I love and some sort of furry friend:)
7. What is your favorite place to shop and why?
Target. Need I say more. The place has everything and the atmosphere is strangely therapeutic for me.
8. If you could eat one specific type of food (Mexican, Chinese, American, etc.) for the rest of your life, what would you eat?
Sushi and Starbucks-the only s's you need in life
9. If you could hold just one memory from you life forever, what would that be?
This is such a good question-and a hard one! This may be cheating but I would have to say this last year. The Lord has literally blown my mind and has blessed me in ways I can't imagine.
10. Which TV show's world would you want to live?
Another easy one: Everybody Loves Raymond. I have grown up watching that show and still love the nights my fam gathers round to watch episode after episode and crack up laughing at the same parts each time. 
11. What are three things you look for in a future spouse?
1-Man of God who loves the Lord way more than he could ever love me 
2-A Man who can make me laugh 
3-A hopeless romantic just like me:)

Can't wait to read all of your responses ladies! I'm extremely thankful to be apart of an amazing community of amazing bloggers! I truly am one blessed blogger...


  1. Aww, thanks! Im going to work on this now!

  2. Thanks girlfriend, I will start working on mine too! and Target is very therapeutic for me too haha! I go there at least once a week, sad I know.

  3. Maybe your future spouse should propose by hiding the ring in a roll of sushi or in a cup of Starbucks coffee!
    (But I bet if that had happened to me, I would have consumed the ring!)

  4. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever have a future spouse. Guys are so complicated and just speak their mind no matter if that's making ya feel bad or not. I mean open and honest is the right way to be right.

    1. I don't know if we're supposed to respond to other people's comments, but just a word of encouragement. My boyfriend who the Lord was so gracious to place in my life is a little bit older than me (He's in his mid 30's) and I have friends all the time or just ladies who I meet random places and they all wonder the same thing. And I always tell them that patience in matters like dating and waiting on the Lord for His perfect timing is ALWAYS a wonderful blessing that you can't even imagine until you get there, but had my boyfriend been impatient with the Lord and not ever so graciously waited, I would have missed out. So because of his self-less-ness, I reaped the greatest blessing.
      So just some encouragement, your future husband will thank the Lord for your patience and praise Him for giving you to him one day! (0:
      Love and blessings,

    2. P.S. Sorry that was so long /0:

  6. Aww yay friend! I LOVED reading your responses to my questions, they put a smile on my face! I am so thankful to have met you through the blogging community, as I was happy to nominate you for this award as well! :). Gosh, we have a lot in common. Sushi and Starbucks are truly the only S's that you need in life! And target--need I say more? best place to shop EVER. I think it so awesome that you are going to Bible college.
