Liebster Award!

So having a notification saying that I have been nominated for an award was the best ending to the worst three hour long night class! Morgan at New Found Love nominated me and I was so touched- You, my friend, are the sweetest!

This award showcases bloggers with less than 200 followers.  I'm still new at this whole blogging thing, but it's been so much fun!

{one} Thank the blogger who nominated you.
{two} Answer the 11 questions given by the blogger who nominated you.
{three} Nominate 11 bloggers and give them questions to answer.

Questions from Morgan:
{one}What made you start blogging?
I found a lot of my favorite blogs from Pinterest and some of my favorites inspired me to make one of my own! I love to cook and bake, so I knew I wanted to share a lot of recipes, pictures from photo shoots I've done, and teacher lessons when I become an elementary teacher.  It's been a great way to connect with some fabulous ladies!!

{two}What blog do you visit/read the most?
There are SO many!! Do I have to choose just one?? I love Nicole over at Bloom- that girl is just always such an encouragement.  Also, I love Iowa Girl Eats.  She has a lot of great recipes that are on my list to try for sure! Jamie at Southern Simplicity is another favorite!

{three}What did you used to want to be you "grew up?"
Okay, so I've always wanted to be a hairstylist/country music singer (the two go together so perfectly, right?).  I was always (and still am) the girl that will say no thank you to reading a magazine because I am honestly intrigued with how my hair stylist cuts my hair.  I loved to watch her cut and style it and later I would find myself trying to "do" my hair like my stylist would.  The country music singer is added on because I would spend countless hours singing to Sara Evans and Martina McBride in my room. 

{four}What is your favorite holiday tradition?
My favorite favorite favorite holiday tradition is at Christmas time.  Every Christmas my parents give my brother and I an ornament that has to do with something we were interested in during the year. They give us an ornament because by the time we move out of the house and have a tree of our own, it will already be decorated with ornaments! Looks like my tree will be filled with Barbie and Wizard of Oz characters...

{five}Where is your favorite place to shop?
Target. All the way. I can find anything and everything there. 

{six}What is your favorite rainy day movie?
Can I just say Netflix for this one? Netflix has become my weakness.  Oops :)

{seven}Where is somewhere you have always wanted to visit?
I've always wanted to visit the east coast, especially Connecticut in the fall- I've heard its absolutely beautiful!

{eight}What or who inspires you the most?
My momma inspires me the most :) She is one strong, independent woman.  Love my momma!

{nine}Dog or cat?
Dog. Definitely a dog. Golden retrievers melt my heart!

{ten}If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Shoots, this is difficult.  I'm such a homebody and love my Nebraska.  But I would love to live somewhere in the Caribbean for a bit- that wouldn't be so bad. :) 

{eleven}What is your absolute dream job?
My absolute dream job is to teach first grade having my masters in counseling with a photography business on the side! DREAM!
