They Like Me, They Really Like Me

You guys! The sweetest thing happened to me on Monday. The wonderful Meagan from All the Joys nominated me for a blog award! (You can read her post here!) I got an award on a past blog before, but this one is all the more special because I'm really taking this blogging thing seriously this go round. I can't tell you how much you (my lovely readers) mean to me. Thank you.

Here are the rules:
1. Post 11 random facts about yourself
2. Answer 11 questions from the blogger that nominated you
3. Nominate 11 bloggers to recieve the award
4. Write your own 11 questions for those bloggers
5. Notify them of their award

11 Random Facts About me:

1. I eloped and didn't tell anyone for three weeks.
2. Instead of a blanket, I carried around my mother's half slip when I was little.
3. I didn't get my driver's license until I was 23. 
4. I only have one dimple. Seriously, check all my pictures.
5. I don't like onions or peppers anywhere near my food.
6. Just the smell of cucumbers makes me want to barf.
7. I had to have braces twice, because I sucked my finger.
8. Purple (of any shade) is my favorite color.
9. I could watch Pride and Prejudice all the time. Like. Every. Single. Day. I totally used to when I lived alone.
10. My mom and I have the same "cat" voice when speaking to/for our cats.
11. My favorite thing to do (besides blogging!) is DIY and craft projects.

Meagan's Questions: 
1. How long have you been blogging?
I started my first blog in 2010 and have been in and out since then. I started PIM in January of this year, and am really taking things to the next level.

2. What is your favorite part about blogging?
The community! There are so many great women to connect with. I have gained so much support and encouragement from Blogland and have made a few amazing friends.

3. Do you like where you live? If no, where would you like to live?
Missouri is growing on me. I like the slower pace of life out here in our tiny town. We do have plans to move to Georgia, but that won't be for several years.

4. What is your favorite tv show - of all time?
Of all time?? Golden Girls. Seriously that show is hilarious.

5. Dogs or cats? Why?
Cats. Why? Because if I don't say I prefer them, mine will claw me in my sleep.

6. What is your favorite season?
Fall. The crisp air. The beautiful colors. The perfect temperatures. What's not to love?

7. Are you an early bird or night owl?
Up until recently, I was a night owl for sure. For some reason, in April, I started getting right up at about 7:30 am every day. Even on the weekends. I can't sleep past 8:00 am or so anymore.

8. What do you think is the best and worst thing about being a woman?
The absolute worst thing about being a woman is having to deal with that gross monthly visitor. Really nature? 
The best thing about being a woman is cute clothes, accessories, and beauty products. Men just can't compete.

9. If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
I would have to say Jennifer Lawrence. I think we could totally be besties.

10. If you were given the opportunity to go back in time and change one thing in your life, would you?
Nope. Not a thing. If all that junk never happened to me, I wouldn't be where I am today. I hate to sound cliche, but everything really does happen for a reason.

11. Coke or Pepsi?
If I absolutely have to choose it would be Coke. I don't really like either. If I have a soda, which is pretty rare these days, it's a Diet Dr. Pepper.

Emily from Ember Grey
Shannon from Awash With Wonder
Jackie from Our Nashville Life

My Questions to you:
1. Why did you start blogging?
2. What's your most favorite post you've ever written?
3. Name three places you think everyone should visit if they get the chance.
4. If you are married (If you aren't married would you) did you write your own vows or stick with traditional ones? 
5. What is your go-to recipe/meal for dinner?
6. What is the most random piece or art, decorative item, or piece of furniture you have in your home?
7. How many children do you have/want? Why?

11. How do you stay motivated to workout and eat healthy?

Check out these amazing ladies, if you haven't already. You won't regret it!


  1. Jennifer Lawrence would be so fun to meet! I hear you on not being able to sleep in... I really, really miss that!

  2. First of all- congratulations!!!! AND- thank you for the nomination!!!! :) I am laughing so hard over you carrying around your mother's half slip. hahah!!!! I mean... I guess it makes sense. They now make little silk blankets for babies.. they call them Silkies. So I guess you kind of started that trend, right?! And "cat voice" haha!! Only someone with a cat would understand that. (Clearly, I understand.) And Golden Girls = always & forever.

  3. Congrats on your award and thank you for nominating me. I'll put my post up later this week!

    <3 Jackie

  4. I'm convinced Jennifer Lawrence and I would have THE perfect bromance! loved the post and thanks for the nomination! you're amazing!!

    xoxo, Amanda
