Nominated for an award … Say what!?!

Sometimes, God just knocks you off your feet with His goodness!

It’s only been about 2 months since I “went live” with this blog, even thought with all the time and sweat I’ve poured into it sometimes it seems like its been longer. Interestingly enough people are starting to notice that I have a small little corner on the internet.  Craziness!

I want to give a big shout out to unOriginalMom for nominating me for the Liebster Award.


For those of you who are still learning “blog talk” like me, the Liebster Award is an award given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers and have been in existence for less than 6 months.

Here are the Rules:

  • Share 11 random facts about yourself
  • Answer 11 questions the nominator has asked you. (in this case it will be the 4 given to me by the nominator)
  • Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
  • Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
  • Go back to their page and tell them about the award.

Ok, so here we go..

11 Random Facts about Me:

  1. I am absolutely petrified of spiders and still have my husband kill them when they are in the house.
  2. I believed that brown cows made chocolate milk until I was 18 years old. (I promise I’m intelligent, I’m just very gullible and believed everything my mom said.)
  3. I graduated with a degree in Sports Wellness and Management.
  4. I have hit a person with a car. (now I know that sounds bad, but I just got my temporary drivers license and I was only going 15 miles an hour… it was his fault, he walked in front of me!!)
  5. I played 12 years of club volleyball growing up and received scholarship offers from Texas A&M, Tennessee, UCONN, and Kentucky. But I ended up choosing to go to a Christian school, Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL and played there instead.
  6. I LOVE everything about the Fall season.
  7. I got married at 22 years old, right after I graduated.
  8. I’m horrible at decorating, but am determined to learn from all those DIY Pinterest Boards.
  9. I ate a whole batch of brownies BY MYSELF the night before my wedding.
  10. One of my favorite books, mostly because it helped rid me of a lot of false beliefs about myself is, “Lies Women Believe and the Truths that Set them Free”.
  11. I gave birth to a 9lb. 2 oz. baby WITHOUT drugs!!! (on purpose)
