Liebster Award + New Blogs!

I received an email last week from Chelsea nominating me for the Liebster Award. I was so excited and almost giddy!

1. For 2015, what is your biggest goal?
I'd have to say my biggest goal is to enjoy more of the "moments" with my family. I'm typically too busy shooting candid pics or making them pose for pictures. I've found on the few occasions where I don't have any electronics, I have more fun. I love documenting life's moments through pics, but it does somewhat take away from the moment.
2. Who is the one person that you wish you could meet?
  Probably Carrie Underwood or Reese Witherspoon :)
3. What is your biggest fear?
 Suffocation (of any kind - drowning, fire, etc)
4. If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to?
I'd probably travel back to the summer of 2002 when I met my husband on a blind date. We fell hard and quick and it was a whirlwind romance that summer.!
5. Do you prefer sweet or salty snacks?
 Both - eating one tends to make me crave the other. I guess I typically start with sweet so that's probably what I prefer.
6. What has been the most rewarding moment in blogging?
I haven't been blogging publicly for very long, but I think just reaching and meeting new people.
7. Would you prefer to swim in the pool or the ocean?
 100% Pool - b/c the beaches we typically visit are dark and murky. It freaks me out to not be able to see what's floating around.
8. What is the one item that you can't live without?
 I'd say my pillow. I grew up seeing my mom travel with hers so (as kids) we always took ours with us. Now I take it with me on every road trip/overnight stay (and so do my kids).
9. What would your perfect day look like? 
 Sleeping in
Going for a run
Eating a picnic lunch with the family
Taking a nap

Playing outside
Eating dinner (not cooked by me! ha!) on the deck
Having icecream for dessert
Tucking the kids in and spending the evening with my hubs
**Now granted I would rather spend the "perfect" day at the beach, but I was just keeping it simple and more "real life" for where I am right now.

10. Where do you most want to travel, but have never been?
This is a hard one b/c I LOVE to travel and would honestly go anywhere as long as my hubs was with me. If we are talking about the US - I'd probably pick Nashville.

 If we are talking out of the country - I'd pick Ireland or London.

  1. I am the same way about salty and sweet snacks, I eat one first and then inevitably have to eat the other next. :)

    1. It's such a bad cycle b/c I'll literally go back and forth from salt to sweet and vice versa!

  2. Just saw your comment on Christina's page and wanted to come over and say hi! I have a huge fear of drowning, too (and being suffocated in general--eek!) and I am SO with you on the salty/sweet snacks. I have one and then want the other!!

  3. Love this. And can't wait to do my post about this next week!!!!!

  4. Aww I dont think I knew that you and your husband met on a blind date - that is so sweet!!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  5. So fun!!! Loved learning more about you and we can't wait to play along next week!
