Getting To Know You, Getting To Know All About You…

Well color me flattered! Susie over at One Oak Lane pretty much made my weekend by sending me an email saying that my blog was nominated for the Liebster Award, which gives a shout out to new blogs on the street to give em’ some loving. I think we can safely say that it made me feel loved, so THANKS, Susie!

If you’re not familiar with the Liebster, it’s a fun little award that was put together to get to know the new blogs on the street.

Liebster Award


Without further ado, here are the questions I was given!

1.  What is the best meal you have ever had?

Dannnggg. I’m an eater so picking one favorite food is like asking a mamma to point out which kid is her fav. 😉 I think I’d have to say my current favorite is a Pork Apple Pie (based off this recipe) that we have. It just may be the perfect winter comfort food. Nom nom nom.

2.  What is your favorite candle scent?

Not really a candle person. I think I have an irrational fear that they are going to burn my house down. I do like the scent of vanilla though, so I’d go with that for a favorite scent overall.

3.  Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?

My big sister Erin, who lives far away in Florida. I’d get nostalgic at this point and say how much I miss her – but it’s 80 degrees in Florida and it’s like 5 here. 😀

4.  Do you prefer to travel by car, boat, or airplane?

None of the above! 😀 We walk and bike everywhere in our house. Hands down my favorite way to scoot around is by my own two feet. 🙂 Flying is also pretty fun, since it means I’m headed off on an adventure.

5.  What is your favorite room to decorate?

I think our living spaces are my favorite, since it where we spend the most time together as a family.

6. Real fire or gas?

Wood burning all the way. More work but it’s so very nice to hear the wood crackling and smell it burning.

7.  What is your favorite color to decorate with?

I’m a neutrals girl and love to layer lots of different colors and patterns. I would say I find myself drawn more to deep tones when it comes to integrating colors. Olive, Navy – at least at the moment 🙂

8. What’s the best gift you’ve ever given?

We’ll, since he uses it every day, I’d go with the road bike I got my hubby for his birthday last year. 😀

9. What ability or skill do you most wish you had (that you don’t have already)? 

Oh, a dash of patience would probably do me good. I’m one spicy firecracker 😀

10. Where do you see yourself in 20 years? 

Owning a bed and breakfast with my husband in Asheville! We want to retire early and open up a space! Ideally I’d love it to be an event space that accommodates weddings, with a beautiful and intimate banquet space and perfectly designed rooms to go along side it. Ahh, a girl can dream, right?!

11. How do you spend your days? 

During the day, I work for the local transit agency to provide resources for people to bike, walk and bus to work. I love my job and I love making human connections within my community daily. I’m so blessed.

And now – to nominate a few blogs of my own to pass on the love!

My questions for these blogs are:

1. Are you married/single/ready to mingle – what’s your relationship status and how long have you been with your significant other?

2. How do you pay the bills, what’s your day job?

3. How did you get into blogging?

4. How long have you been blogging for?

5. Where do you live? Do you like it? Why/Why not?

6. Do you own or rent your house

7. What’s your dream job/life/etc.
