So back when I started blogging I never thought I would actually have people read my blogs or even "care" about what I had to say. Writing and journaling have always been a passion of mine and to be able to share that with others is an amazing thing.
Last night I was out with my husband and our friends when I received a comment from Ileana, a mama to be who I love reading!
In her comment she commented on my Shutterfly photo book I wrote about here and she told me how she nominated me for the Liebster Award!

My Questions From Ileana
1. How would you describe yourself in three words? Genuine, loving, and OCD.
2. What is one thing you do just for you? Blare the music when I am in the car by myself or work on our photo books on Shutterfly.
3. What was one of your resolutions this year? Have you kept it? I wrote about my resolutions in this post. The one I wanted to work on the most was to go to Church more. I would say so far so good. We have gone every other weekend apart from one, which was when Alex had RSV.
4. If you could change one thing about your life what would it be? We would not be behind on bills ever and I would actually have a decent savings.
5. How do you feel about chocolate? I think it might just be better than sliced bread! But seriously I love it, but in moderation.
6. What is your biggest phobia? That would be something happening to Alex.
7. Why do you blog? I blog as an outlet to help remember our lives right now. When I am old an grey I want to be able to relive as much as possible.
8. Dogs or Cats? Definitely dogs! I am really allergic to cats and I find them incredibly unpredictable which scares the pants off of me.
9. What is your most embarrassing moment? I had to think about this one for awhile. But what I could remember would be: When Chris and I had been dating for awhile we went to a party at his brothers house. I really didn't know his family very well yet. So I was glued to his hip. While we were in the kitchen with "the guys" we were eating chili, and in Cincinnati we eat noodles with our chili, well someone said something funny and one of the noodles went down the wrong tube. I started coughing and hacking and when I finally cleared it I made the comment, "I choked on my noodle." And needless to say none of those men can let me live it down.
10. What is your favorite TV show? It's a toss up between Grey's Anatomy and Pretty Little Liars.
11. What is your guilty pleasure? Well if you follow me on Instagram you saw that it is a nice drink with friends.
