Liebster Award

Hey friends. Happy Friday!!  Katie,from The Campbell's nominated me for the Liebster Award.  Blogger awards are the best way to find new bloggers and I knew I had to join in on the fun.

The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster?  The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn't that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it's a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.

Here are the rules:
1. Link back to the person who nominated you
2. Answer the 11 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you
3. Pick 11 bloggers with under 200 followers to be nominated
4. Com up with 11 questions for your nominees to answer
5. Notify your nominees

Here are my questions from Katie:

1. Favorite soft drink?
     Diet Dr. Pepper

2. What is your favorite reality TV show?
    This is a hard one because I am a reality show junkie! I would have to say any Real Housewives show.  My husband will hate this answer because he calls it trash.
3. Would your rather be hot or cold and why?
   Cold, Cold, Cold!!  I am not made for hot weather at all.  One of my favorite things to do is turn the air down in my house just so I can cozy up with a blanket.  Honestly, nothing better!
4. What is your greatest fear?
     My greatest fear is not being able to become a Mother.  I just have to put it all in God's hands.
5. Are you more likely to be found wearing flats or heels?
     I'd have to say flats on this one.  I enjoy a good wedge, but since after knee surgery, those are in the back of the closet...for now.
6. What is a quote that defines you and your life right now and why?
   This is a recent one that I got off of my Fertility Center's website, but it says "Already in my heart, someday in my arms."  The defines me and what I am going through because we have yet to hold our child in our arms, but we know that all miracles take a little time.
7. What one piece of makeup could you not live without?
   Mascara!!! 100%  By the way, have you tried lBenefits They're Real Mascara??  AMAZING!!
Just a little FYI for you, The Bacherlorette, Emily Maynard swears by it!  Read about it Here.
8. What is your main goal for your blog?
  My main goal for my blog is to write for me.  Over the past months it has been very therapeutic for me and if I am able to help someone else through my journey, that's an extra bonus.
9. What is your go to perfume?
Beyond Paradise by Estee Lauder.  This is the perfume that my Daddy always bought me.  The scent is very zesty and floral.  I love it!
10. What is one random fact about yourself?
   I am been told numerous times that I am not a true southerner because...I HATE Grits!!  Not my cup of sweet tea
