Liebster Award + New Blogs

I was so excited to get an e-mail from the sweet Mommy at Full Time Wife Life  nominating my little blog for an Liebster Award. I am so in shock that people still read my blog!! I love it..

What is your go-to bible verse, quote, or encouraging thought when "wife" or "mom" life gets the best of you?

What was the hardest hobby or habit to give up when you became a wife or mom?

            Monogramming!! I feel like I need to monogram Lily Jane's ( I love doing it) but it can be stressful at times. I have started to do more for other people and have started an ESTY store to sell some stuff.. 

     If you were given $1000 to spend at any one store, where would you go?

          If you asked me this last week I would say Target for clothes and such.. This week I would say Pottery Barn to buy stuff for our new house (hopefully we still get it) 

    If you could set your life story to a song, which song would you choose? 

                                          Life is a Dance you learn as you go :) 

Life's a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go

The longer I live the more I believe
You do have to give if you want to receive
There's a time to listen, a time to talk
And you might have to crawl even after you walk

        Tell us about your favorite date ever.

          My favorite date ever was when me and the Mr. just jumped in the car and took off we stopped along the interstate if we wanted and figured out where we were going when we got there. We ended up in a small little town an hour away had lunch went shopping and got to enjoy each other and do whatever we wanted!!!!!

      What do you wish you could do, but just can't quite accomplish?

         Right now in my job I want to move up to become an Assistant Principal but in my district there are so many people that want it so I need to learn to be content in where I am right now and where GOD has placed me because there is a good reason for it 

    What is your favorite season, and why?

         My favorite season is the Fall :) I love it when the leaves turn color and it is a little cool but not to cold. I also, love that it is FOOTBALL season and we get to hang out with our friends a lot and open all the windows.. 

   When is your favorite time to read blogs?

         Late at night once Lily Jane has gone to bed it helps me unwind from the craziness of the day and it is a few minutes of me time!! 

   Share a photo of your favorite household decorative, or just plain useful, item! 
She is the best item we have at our house!! She never stops, is always laughing, brings so much joy than we could have ever imagine and will be with us forever!!!! Better than any decorative piece we own..

  1. Thanks, lady! I so wish I knew how to monogram and how did I never know you had an Etsy shop until now?!? Your stuff is the cutest! I definitely see me placing an order this weekend, be on the lookout :) I wish I would have seen it in time to scoop up that coral reef tote for my vacation next week… but there's plenty of summer beach days ahead for that!

  2. Aww thanks girl!! So exciting!!
    Again, I'm so envious of your monogramming abilities! And I'm right there with ya with pottery barn. We've had our eyes on those lockers for years now.
    Have a great day!

  3. What a fun post! I love learning fun facts about the people who write some of my favorite blogs! And I love that PB would be your first splurge right now because I too would definitely hit them up for some patio furniture if I had an extra $1000! As for the job, I keep reminding myself that life is long...so keep working toward your goal while maintaining your healthy attitude about it!

  4. Congrats on the award!

    I agree, Fall is the best time of the year. :) I'm hoping everything will work out with the house, that is so exciting!

  5. Congrats on the award - so fun! And thank you for the nomination - I'll do my post later this weekend after the crazy settles down from hosting 2 bridal showers in 1 day! EEK!

  6. this was awesome and I loved learning so much about you! Congrats on the award :)
