Liebster Award 2018

2018 Liebster Award Nomination!

Yesterday I received notification that I have been nominated for the 2018 Liebster Award! My nomination comes from a fellow blogger that I have come to love, Pamela Diji of!

So, what is a Liebster Award?

  2. Answer the questions given to you by whoever nominated you!
  3. Create new questions for those you will nominating.
  4. Comment on the original blog post with your link!

  6. Provide 10 random facts about yourself.
  7. NOMINATE 5-11 blogs!
  8. Notify the bloggers that they have been nominated!

Why do I blog?

As a Stay-at-Home mom, it is really easy to get stuck in a pretty mundane cycle. After struggling with depression and anxiety for years, I knew that I needed some type of outlet to keep me sane. I started my blog in January of 2018 to be my outlet, but also to inspire, educate, and support other mamas.

10 random facts about me:

  1. I am a Certified Wedding Planner!
  2. I love to eat bananas with a little bit of hot sauce! {don’t judge!}
  3. I have a BIG family.
  4. Salted Caramel is probably my favorite flavor in the whole world.
  5. Music is life.
  6. My dream job as a child was always either a teacher or vet!
  7. I took the same Psychology class 3 times. Not because I failed, but because I liked it so much!!!
  8. I secretly enjoy math. Lol.
  9. I try to do DIY stuff and end up with 15 unfinished projects.
  10. My kids drive me crazy, but they are my world. But you already knew that. 😉

My ANSWERS to Pam’s Questions:

  1. If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, who would you choose and why? My first thought is Dr. Ben Carson. Ever since Lana saw “Gifted Hands” she has had a minor obsession with him, so I would choose him and hope that she would be able to join us and meet her inspiration for being a brain surgeon!
  2. What is your purpose in life? To mother my children, raise them to be successful adults, teach them to love everyone and to follow the Lord.
  3. Who do you regard as having changed the world the most? My husband and I talked about this the other day, and although I know he wasn’t the only contributor, I would have to say Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Had it not been for his contributions to the Civil Rights movement, I’m not sure that our family would be as dynamic as it is.
  4. Who has helped to make you the person that you are today? How have they done this? My children. They are constantly making me view the world from different perspectives. Because of their imaginations, free-spirits, and unique thinking they challenge my thinking process when it comes to just about everything. I have learned so much from them spiritually as well. Such as how to be thankful for the simple things, being content at all times, and loving with my whole self.
  5. If you could leave the next generation with one piece of advice, what would it be? Be yourself. 100%.
  6. What’s your biggest achievement? Maybe a little cliché, but my kids.
  7. What’s your favorite meal? Mmmmm…. Currently, vegan burrito bowls!
  8. If you knew you only had one week to live, what would you spend that week doing? Why? Make as many memories with my babies as possible, and make sure to document as much of it as I can so that they have good memories of our life together.
  9. If you could take one item to a desert island with you, what would you take? Why? A fully stocked cruise ship, for obvious reasons. I mean, is that legal? XD
  10. In your opinion, what’s most important in life? Love.
