Liebster Award

I was nominated by Tanya over at Prairie Girl in the Big, Scary World for a Liebster Award.  I was pretty excited!  A Liebster Award is an "award" given to bloggers from other bloggers.  It is a way to get to know other bloggers and to hopefully help other people "discover" some of these bloggers.

Here are the rules:

-You must answer the 10 questions posed to you by the blogger who nominated you.
-You then nominate 8 more bloggers and pose 10 new questions to them.  (It is best to pick bloggers without many followers.)

Here are my answers:

1.)  Why did you start your blog?  I started my blog because I love to write.  I was originally an English major before I decided on a career in health care.  I admit that it is much harder to blog than I thought it would be, but I am enjoying the creative outlet.  I like having a space to explore my minimalism and to help keep me accountable to my goals.

2.)  What is something that makes you smile?  My family.  My husband and daughter never cease to bring a smile to my face!

3.)  What is your most prized possession?  I would have to say my wedding ring.

4.)  If you could meet anyone dead or alive, who would it be?  This one is a toughie.  I am having a hard time with it.  I am going to say Audrey Hepburn.  She was a beautiful, classy woman.  She was also generous and wise.  I feel like I could learn a lot from her.

5.)  What is your favourite blog post you have written?  My favourite post was my Winter Wardrobe recap.  The link is here.  I feel like I am improving, slowly but surely!

6.)  If you won 50 million dollars in the lottery, what would be the first thing you would do?  I would immediately pay off my house and Jeep.

7.)  If you could live anywhere on earth, where would it be?  Maui.  Hands down!

8.)  What is something you love about where you grew up?  My parent's acreage.  It was such a peaceful place, where I learned to really appreciate nature.

9.)  What is your favourite movie of all time?  I actually have a top 3 list.  Casablanca, Mary Poppins and Sweet Home Alabama.

10.) What is one quality about yourself that you feel you need to work on?  I am a big worrier.  I have improved considerably since having to deal with infertility.  I know that worrying is a waste of time and doesn't change anything, but it seems to be my default mode.  I am working on it... 

I am nominating:
1.)  Monica @ Jersey Girl Texan Heart
2.)  Penny @ Penny's Passion
3.)  Jessica and Katie @ Sweet Little Ones Blog
4.) Tina @ Go Big Or Go Home
5.) Jill @ Doused In Pink
6.) Sarah @ Bows and Clothes
7.) Jessi @ From Here to Explore
8.) Kayla @ A Paper Arrow

Here are your 10 questions:

1.)  What is your blog about?  (Put a link to a great post you have made!)
2.)  What craft or recipe do you excel at making?
3.)  What is your favourite fashion accessory?
4.)  What is your favourite T..V show?
5.)  What is one place in the world you would love to travel to?
6.)  What person has had a major influence on your life.  Why?
7.)  What movie do you think everyone should watch?
8.)  If you had the chance to travel to space, would you do it?
9.)  Do you have any pets?  Tell us about them if you do!
10.)  Describe yourself using only one word.

Have fun everyone!  Please check out these great blogs!
