2016 Liebster Award!

Hi Guys! I should of posted this earlier but you know how it is, had to tell everyone in Twin Falls, Idaho about my AMAZING news. I couldn’t focus!

I’m so excited, yesterday I got nominated for the Liebster award! For those of you who aren’t familiar with this award, it’s an online award for bloggers from bloggers! I talk about how in love with this online world I am, and it just keeps getting better! A big beautiful shout out to https://hawklycoop.wordpress.com/ for the nomination. If you have yet to check out her blog I highly suggest you do! It’s a great blog about all my favorite things; fashion, food and outside! Spoiler Alert, by the time you leave her blog your gonna wanna do yoga!

 I just cant believe that only 3 weeks ago I did my first post and followed my first blogger, At Koko’s Place! This lady is everything I hope to be as a blogger. Her DIY take on re-purposing and up-cycling items is so inspirational! Not to mention she as a cat, and is completely gifted at crafting. She has over the amount of followers needed for the Liebster Award which only goes to show that dedication pays off! Visit her blog for great ideas on how to make any house a home on the down low.

As with award nomination tradition I will now answer 11 questions provided from HawklyCoop:

Why did you start blogging? (classic question)— I started blogging when I started crafting so many crafts and working with so many great shops in my area. I wanted to share my experience and the things that I love with people from all around the world.

What do you want to be when you grown up? (If you’re grown up what do you do?)— I am 25, I am not sure if this qualifies my as “grown up”. However I do have my dream job that just keeps getting better everyday! I work from home online, using the web to sale crafts that I have created or clothing that is lightly used!

Are you a planner or spontaneous?— I would definitely have to say I’m both. I am extremely spontaneous, however I am also an amazing last minute planner. Ask my husband.

What’s your favorite past time?— Trying to pick just one is so hard. I would definitely have to say hanging with my fur babies. They are the light of my day, everyday.

Where do you want to live/settle down?— This question is hard, I’m a self labeled wanderlust. Andy and I purchased a Winnebago last tax season in hopes to restore it and travel for a living!

What’s your most valuable piece of advice you can give someone? (about anything)— Don’t be so hard on yourself.

Cat or dog?— Of course this question is on here, and my husband Andy waits patiently to see what I put. You see when had my cat before we ever ended up living in a house with 6 dogs. However, I’d still have to go dog. My pointer Dude is the best medication I’ve ever had. Makes me feel better instantly, Cookie doesn’t do that without food or being gone.

What is a trait that you value about yourself?— Honesty. I am not the kind of friend or person who will spoon feed you lies, if you want the truth or a flat out opinion I’m your girl.

What’s your most prized possession?— Not to be corny, but my wedding ring. Aside from the fact it was given to me by my husband who got it from his father, but also because of what it symbolizes. Andy is my best friend, and my biggest supporter.

What’s your favorite book?— Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli it was released when I was 10, and I loved it instantly. Read it!

What makes you smile?— My friends, for reals. I have mentioned how lucky I am as far as my husband and animals go, but the rest of my life is made up of my friends and supporters. If it wasn’t for the shout outs (Robert&Jarod), the hours spent recording(Abel), teaching me how to do my hair and make-up (Kayla&Megan), feeding me (Bobbiejo, Austin &Tera) and thousands of Snapchat answers (Kylie,Amanda,Dixie and Suzy) I wouldn’t of made it here, y’all the real MVP’s. Also nothing makes me smile more then when Mama Willow brings me homemade frappes!
