Liebster Award Nomination # 2

After being away from my computer all day running errands, I came back to find a nice little surprise awaiting me! I had been nominated for the Liebster award for the second time! What an honor :) My friend Kacie at The Momma Experience was kind enough to nominate me this time around! She is super adorable a blogger, momma and cook! Make sure to check her out - you will be glad you did. :)

Ok, so for those who are unfamiliar with the Liebster award, here's the skinny.
 The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. And the award is for new and upcoming blogs that have less than 200 followers. 

First, can I just say what compliments about my work. Thank you thank you thank you! I'm so honored.

2. Answer the questions by your nominator.
3. Nominate 11 bloggers (with less than 200 hundred followers) and link them in your post.
4. Create 11 questions for your nominees.
5. No tag back required, but leave a comment on this post with the URL to your Liebster post so I can learn more about you.

Eleven (11) random facts about me:
1. I quit my job and am a stay at home wife.

10. I am currently obsessed with nail polish.
11. I try to relax, but its not easy for me.

The questions from Kacie:

1. What do you want your blog to stand for?
A couple of things. First, I love God and my life is His. I want to share the gospel of the Lord. I also want people to know me. I'm happy and fun loving. I am married to my best friend and so thankful for my life.

2. What is your favorite season?
Fall. I hate shorts but love love love sweaters and jackets

3. Is the job you currently have the job you've always wanted?
I recently became a stay at home wife. :) I;m doing what I always wanted!

Oh tough one  - I could eat Mexican most days, so I'm going with that.

5. What is your all time favorite movie?
Easy - Pride and Prejudice. But not the Kiera Knightly version. I'm talking about the 6 hour A&E version with Colin Firth

6. Cats or dogs?
I'm more of a dog person than cat. Cats bring dead mice to your doorstep and that freaks me out!

7. Have you ever rode a horse?
I have. I did every summer for a couple of years on vacation and my friend in middle school had her own.

8. What is your dream vehicle?
A Momma van - like an Odyssey or something similar. Swivel seats, doors that open with the click of a button. Oh yea, I'm dreaming big!
