I've been given the Leibster Award!

I'm so excited to have been given the Leibster Award! Thanks SarahNaptime Nothings for passing it along to me.

The Leibster Award is basically a supportive award that is given to new bloggers. I am a new blogger and I obviously need some blogging support, so hello, Leibster Award!! Haha!
I am also really excited because this award focuses on bloggers with 200 followers or less.
It is a great way for small blogs like mine to make new friends and
share their ideas.
So, lets get started!!


1. Thank your Liebster Award presenter on your blog and link back to their blog.

2. Answer the 11 questions from the nominator, list 11 random facts about yourself and create 11 questions for your nominees.

3. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 11 blogs that has 200 followers or less whom you feel deserve to be noticed. Be sure to leave them a comment on their blog to let them know they have been chosen.

4. Copy and paste the blog award on to your blog. It is an award so show it off! Wink...Wink.

11 Questions....
1. When do you find the time to blog?
I don't really have a specific time of day that I devote to blogging.   I have gotten really lazy with blogging lately that I have worked on crafts, but just gotten lazy with taking progress pictures and actually getting them uploaded to the computer so I can edit them and have them for blogging.  I'm not even blaming the absence of blogging on spending my time taking care of a toddler or upkeeping with a home and being a wife.. Just plain LAZY lately.. bahahaaha.. 
I'll get back in the groove.. <3

2. IF you could be any animal, what would it be and why?
Hmm.. tough question.. Not something you ever really think about, but let's see... maybe a giraffe? .. I'm a short person so I'd choose to be a tall animal ;p

3. Describe what you feel when you see your favorite color?
I don't really know... just happy because it's my favorite color.  Is that a good answer?

4. What is your favorite television show?
As far as up-to-date shows, my favorites include: The Big Bang Theory, Mike & Molly, and Top Gear.....
but I'm a sucker for re-runs of Friends, Reba, & According to Jim during the day.. Hey!, I'm a stay at home momma and I love having the tv on.. I love noise--

5. What one thing would you like your children to take into adulthood?
 Their faith.  Without knowing Jesus, life isn't worth living... 

6. What does your family think of your blog?
They are pretty supportive.. They'll comment sometimes that they've seen a really cool craft I did and it just makes my day! .. I actually prolly wouldn't have a blog if it weren't for them telling me to start one :) 

7. What would your dream vacation be?
I'd just be happy with a beach & hot weather & a cold drink in my hand.
I'm easy to please.

8. What is your favorite midnight snack?
 Really anything junk related.  I really need to work on just grabbing a piece of fruit.

9. What daily chore do you despise the most?
 Making my bed... I do it, it just takes me a couple hours after I wake up!

10. What advice would you give to a first time blogger?
You don't get a 100 followers overnight.  I still am not at 100 followers and I still get down, but you just gotta keep on keeping on.  I realize that just because you don't have a lot of followers it doesn't mean that nobody looks at your blog.. I have 87 followers and one of my posts alone has reached nearly 87,000 views.. THAT is a major confidence boost right there!  Do it because you enjoy it, not because you think you'll become famous from it or something wacky.
11. If you had 3 wishes what would you wish for?
At the moment...
1.  A healthy delivery for baby #2 (july)
2.  Long and healthy life for my family
3.  NO CANCER.. (wouldn't everyone agree!?!)

11 Random Facts About Me

1.  I'm the #1 paranoia in the world..
2.  I gave up caffeine
3.  I love the beach, but avoid actually going into the water..
4.  I went to school for natural health

6. Baby #2 is due on July 3rd.
