Liebster Award 2016

I'm not exactly sure why I decided to start a blog, but after three years I can't see myself stopping anytime soon and that is because I have "met" some of the sweetest ladies through this little online venture. It took me a long time to find my community and now that I have I feel very blessed. I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by three very wonderful bloggers, Leslie from This is For Keeps, Jess from Secrets of a Stay at Home Mom and Amy from keepin' up with the Smiths; thank you ladies for being so wonderful!
I'm liking the "pick-and-choose method" for answering questions so here goes:

What's one random talent you have?
I can roll my tongue into a "three leaf clover" I would show a picture but it's too weird to even document, haha.

What is your favorite part of your wedding day?
Dressing up, having my papa walk me down the aisle, and watching Brian tear up as I made my way towards him. 

Who is your celebrity crush?
Tom Welling.

Where would you go on vacation if money was no object?
DisneyWorld for two weeks and stay in Cinderella's Castle!

What is your least favorite chore?
It's a toss up between washing dishes and scrubbing toilets. 

What would your perfect day entail?
Sleeping in ridiculously late. Eating eggs benedict and drinking a mimosa for brunch. A trip to Target with a Starbucks in hand. Reading a book at my leisure. Throw in some type of dessert and I'm golden.
If this is a family day, I'd say a trip to the beach, a picnic lunch and a nap for everyone.

How old were you when you got married?
22 years old but I was just 3 weeks shy of turning 23.

What is your favorite holiday?

What is your favorite Disney or Disney/Pixar movie?
Get ready for a list:
My favorite live action Disney movie is Return to Oz.
My favorite cartoon of all time is Alice in Wonderland.
My favorite Princess movies are The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog and Tangled.
My favorite Pixar movies are Monster Inc (it came out on my birthday!) and Wreck it Ralph.

What is you favorite store to shop for yourself?
I am a loyal Gap Inc girl (which includes Old Navy, Athleta and Banana Republic); after working there for 7 years, I just can't kick them! Plus they just have great quality pieces that I know will always fit.

  1. Loved learning some new things about you. So cool about being 25 weeks with Kinsey when you turned 25. I love that you thought of that. I find snakes and spiders creepy too. Eww. Two weeks at Disney would be amazing. :)

  2. Your nose has been broken since you were a kid? As in it didn't heal?
    I second your two weeks at Disney World staying in the castle. Way fun.
    I hate sand too!

  3. I loved reading this :) I was 22 when I got married and my perfect day would be a trip to Target with Starbucks too! Great minds think alike!!

  4. I love reading these! It's been a while since I originally "got this award", so thanks for another nomination! Too funny you like the ocean but not the sand. I go to the beach and rarely even go in! I love the sound of the ocean but prefer to swim in a pool.

  5. It's always so fun to read these! I haven't done this award in a while, so I will have to get it in in a few weeks! I admit I had to google your celeb crush. I've never heard of him!


  6. Love this, and thanks for nominating me! I am with you on sand at the beach...I would LOVE to live on the beach, if it was warm enough in Maine, but I cannot stand my cooler, the car, bathing suits, ick! I bring baby powder with me and douse everyone before we leave to get the sand off! ANd snakes and spiders? EWWW I can't even see a garden snake on the TV. Can't even handle it.

  7. Thanks for doing this! I love learning more about you!

    When are we all going to Disney?? ;)

  8. I love these kind of posts!!!
    Your perfect day is basically my perfect day. Let's have one of those days together!
    You were 14 when you got your belly button pierced?? A state law made it impossible to get one without parental consent until we were 16. Guess what I did two days after I turned 16? :)
    YAY for swim team!! I was a freestyler and butterfly'er. I miss all those laps.
    Thanks for the nomination!! I've got one of these queued up, and I'm totally going to have to go the pick-and-choose route!

  9. Loved learning more about you! Blogger meet up in Disney World? ;) I wish it wasn't so far/expensive or else I'd be going often! I despise washing dishes. So thankful for a dishwasher and a hubby who doesn't mind washing dishes! Your perfect day sounds pretty fantastic. And ouch to the broken nose. I've had plenty of injuries in my day, but a broken nose sounds like it would be horribly painful.

  10. How fun that you were 25 week on your 25th birthday, that's fun. One of the Disney Movies my daughter watches that I don't mind watching over and over is Tangled and Little Mermaid. Who are we kidding, I don't think I would get tired of any of them. Chore I hate the most...taking out the trash (like to the curb), don't mind taking it from the kitchen to the trash...I will do anything not to do it...and unfortunately Mr. is gone this I have to do it...yuck!

  11. Thanks for the nomination Whitney! I googled Tom Welling and yes. I definitely agree.
    Evelina @ Fortunate House

  12. I'd LOVE to go to DisneyWorld for two weeks and stay at the castle! DREAM for sure!!! Also, I'd like to eat unlimited churros without gaining any weight. Because those things are SO GOOD.
    I love your list of favorite Disney movies! I don't think I could pick just one either!

  13. Congrats on your award! XOXO I still have to do my post..oops!
    I'm with you on the Disney World Vacation!

    1. Yay! Thank goodness for an editorial calendar otherwise Id never know what to post lol.

  14. 3 leaf clover, that is just bizarre and now I kind of want to see it. That vacation sound amazing and I'll scrub the toilets if you clean the shower. I HATE cleaning the shower. Thanks for the nomination friend.... I'll get around to this in about 4 months ;).

  15. Loved getting to learn more about you! I am weird about the ocean. I love going, love being near the water, but I do not get in the water. It makes me feel sticky and then the sand, no, just no! I like to stay back and take pictures!! Thanks for the nomination sweet friend!

  16. I adore getting to know your little quirks!!!! You are seriously so much fun!! I sure did love that I was first on your nom list... Then I realized it was in abc order ;)
