I’ve been nominated for a Liebster Award from my dear blogger pal Jasmine over at Fleurty and Fit !
I am consistently inspired every day by Jasmine’s blog and am so excited that she nominated me for this! Here are the rules if you choose to accept your nomination:
1.) you must link back to the person who nominated you
2.) you must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominator
3.) you must pick 10 bloggers to be nominated for the award (with a small following)
4.) you must create 10 questions for your nominees
5.) you must notify your nominees
So, here I go! These are the questions Jasmine picked for me:
1. What was the first blog you ever read?
Oh man, this is a toughie! The first “weight loss” blog I ever read was definitely Katie over at Runs for Cookies. I fell in love with this blog and she opened my eyes to a whole new world of weight-loss communities! If you don’t know that blog, check her out!
2. What are your top five pins on Pinterest?
These are going to have to be anything to do with food and drink. That’s my fave section to cruise on Pinterest, also part of the reason I have a weight loss blog now (lol). My second fave category is Holidays and Events!! Anything to do with decorating and holidays I love…especially when it comes to recipes!
3. What is your go to easy recipe for dinner each week?
If I’m really in a rush (which I am almost each weeknight except for Wednesday), I’ll typically make some kind of pasta dish. I also really like “bubble up” pizzas or things like that that use meat, refrig biscuits, sauce, etc. Disclaimer: this girl don’t eat clean .lol.
4. What is your favorite social media site? Facebook, IG, Twitter, others?
I am a huuuuuge weirdo and I don’t actually do social media. I gave up facebook in May of 2012 and have never looked back. I actually love not having it…it takes me off the grid in some respects and it forces me to spend time making an effort to keep in touch with my loved ones. The worst part though is forgetting everyone’s birthdays! I don’t do twitter, IG, or anything else like that either. In fact, this blog is the only form of social media (is this even social media? I guess it is…) that I use.
5. Where do you see your blog in 1 year? 5 years? 10 years?
I hope that my blog stays the same in the next 1-3 years as I continue on my weight loss journey, although I’d love to have more followers 🙂 I’m really content though with where it is now, and if that never changes, I’d be fine. I have a great little support group that I can count on..composed of wonderful people I’ve never even met! In 5-10 years, hopefully this will be a weight loss MAINTENANCE blog !!!
6. What is your favorite thing to do for fun?
Ohhhhh I do so many things for fun! I love to just chill out with family and friends, but aside from that, I’m a huge gamer. The hubs and I typically go to game night with our friends once a week and play all sorts of different things. Most often we’re playing Dungeons and Dragons, Call of Cthulhu, other various RPGs, or random games that we’ve discovered at Gencon. We are nerrrrdz! We also looove to play disc golf. lol.
7. Who is your best friend?
Hands down, gotta be the hubs. Have been in love with him since 2009 and still am, and we do pretty much everything together. He is awesome!!! My dog comes in a close 2nd. (lol jk but not really jk…I love my dog, she’s my little baby!!). My other best friend is Bryanna (Bre), my bff who has been going to school with me since we were 5. I love that we are still so close!
8. How do you promote your blog?
I don’t really do anything to promote my blog, other than recently I signed up for bloglovin’ and I put a button after each of my posts. lol. I’m not really into the whole “promoting” thing…probably has something to do with my distaste for social media–I just want it to keep accountable and use it as a way to keep track of my journey. It’s also kind of nice for some of my friends to be able to read it since I’m not on facebook–they can still keep up with my life this way. I love love love having it to find other blogs. That’s part of what helps to keep me inspired!
9. What is your favorite Disney Movie?
OK, so the answer to this question for YEARS was totally Aladdin, but then Brave came out a couple of years ago and I definitely have to go with that. My family is Scottish, so that movie totally appeals to me!! I love it!
10. If you could go on vacation anywhere in the world, with unlimited funds–where would you go?
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh this question is so hard, I want to go to so many places! I think I’d go somewhere that is tropical but that has perfect weather. (Perfect for me means sunny and 70 with just a slight breeze that doesn’t make it too chilly). lol.
OK, so here are MY 10 questions:
1. What is your favorite TV show or series?
2. What is your preferred form of exercise?
3. Salty or sweet?
4. What is the best vacation you’ve ever had?
5. Who is (one of) your favorite actors?
6. If there was one book that you could read over and over and never grow tired of it, which book would you pick?
7. If you could move to any place in the world, where would you move?
8. City or country?
9. If you were approached with an opportunity to go to outer space, would you take it, and why?
10. Why did you start a blog?
Here are my nominees (sorry, I don’t have 10 who haven’t already been nominated but I’ll do what I can!)
1. Ash @ Ash’s Right Direction
2. Erin @ She’s a Big Star
3. Winter @ No Drama Little Mama
4. Cassi @ Cassi’s Journey
5. Hilary @ Getting Through Life
6. Kristian @ Sister Kristian
7. Aimee @ Irresistible Icing
OK, I think that’s it for now. Thanks again, Jasmine, you rock!!!
