Liebster Award

Happy Monday! Bahahaha. Anyway, last week I was nominated by the sweet Lindi over at Sweet Southern Sparkle for the Liebster award. This was perfect timing because I had a "get to know me" post planned for today anyway :)

For those of you who do not know what the Liebster Award is, it was started by bloggers to nominate new bloggers in order for them to gain recognition and a boost to keep them going.

The Rules:
  • You must link back to the person who nominated you
  • You must answer the 11 questions given to you by the nominee before you
  • You must 11 pick nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions
  • You cannot nominate the person who nominated you
  • You must tell the nominees that they have been nominated by you

Lindi's Questions:

1. Why did you start blogging? I started blogging in July of 2012 as a way of documenting everything baby for my family and friends. In January of 2013 I discovered this whole world of blogging and I was hooked!

2. What is your favorite beauty product? My favorite beauty product is probably Burt's Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm. Does that count? I'm not much of a makeup girl (I only wear blush, eyeshadow, eye liner, and mascara) and I don't remember the last time I had product in my hair! Seriously though, back to the lip balm, it's the best stuff ever!

3. What was the name of your very first pet? I honestly can't remember. I know it was a dog and was names after a character from the Muppets though!

4. What does your blog name mean to you? Just what it says. It's all about the adventures in being a redhead and mom!

5. If you could pick one place to travel to where would it be? Hmm. This is a tough one! Probably Ireland, the land of the gingers! All kidding aside, it looks like such a beautiful place to visit.

6. What are your hobbies besides blogging? Running, reading, baking, crafting. A little bit of everything!

7. Who is the most influential person in your life? I would say my Mammaw. She's so loving and caring and takes such good care of her family and rarely (if ever) complains!

8. What is your dream job? Some kind of event planner. Or owning an etsy shop big enough that I could work from home and spend more time with Clay!

9.What is your go to wardrobe item? Yoga pants and a soft tee. Yep.

10.What is your favorite kind of candy? Reese's cups without a doubt! Dove dark chocolate is a close second though.

11. What advice could you give to a new blogger? Just enjoy it. Don't listen to all of the "rules" that people give you. Don't stress about it. Most importantly, be yourself! Don't change yourself into who you think your readers would like more.


I'm going to break the rules now and say I nominate all of you (especially you, Liz and Amy)!

My questions:

  1. Why did you start blogging?
  2. What are your favorite blogs to read?
  3. Are you a sweet or salty person?
  4. Have you done your monthly self breast exam (I'm serious, I'm horrible at remembering to do this!
  5. What is your least favorite household chore?
  6. Do you prefer the beach or the mountains?
  7. What is your weirdest quirk?
  8. What is your wish for your blog this year?
  9. What is your favorite piece of jewelry?
  10. Who is the last person you hugged?
  11. If you had to change your name, what would you change it to?

I know, I know, I'm the best question asker ever. Hahahahaha. Okay, your turn! Get to answering!

I love Reese's peanut butter anythings. I saw Butterfingers made a peanut butter cup but I know it's not as good.

Jaclyn @ Love And Bellinis said...

Just found your blog, and I love the name of it! My cousin is a redhead as well, I need to share this with her...she'll love it.
