Liebster Award!

I got a happy surprise when I checked my blog this morning! Stephili from Heart Soul Inspiration  nominated me for the Liebster Award!

I've never been nominated for anything related to blogging, so I'm super excited! Thank you so much Stephili

 So here’s the rules:
Each person must post 11 things about themselves

Answer the questions that the nominator set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve nominated to answer.

Choose 11 people and link them in your post.

Go to their page and tell them.

No tag backs!

Eleven things about me
1.  I collect vintage dishes. My dream is to find some super pretty Pyrex to display once I get a cabinet for them! Like these lovelies...
2.  Working at a craft store (Hobby Lobby) means I have a million ideas for projects, but not enough time in the day to make them. Le sigh.
3.  Every time I see a photo of Little Richard, it makes me giggle. It's not that I don't respect the guy, I know he's a legendary singer. But that mustache! For the longest time I thought he was wearing lip liner. I can't be the only one, right? 
4.  I envy people who are good at doing their hair. I try my hardest and the best I can do is messy buns and waves. My dream is to master french braiding because it's so pretty.

5.  Owls are my favorite animals; I have them arranged throughout my house.

6.  I love the game Clue and the movie based on it. I'm always Miss Scarlett when I play.

7. There is a baby squirrel that lives in the tree in front of our house, but I've yet to get a photo of him; he's too quick!

8.  I dislike any sort of yard work. Shoveling snow, mowing, raking leaves...I hate it all.

9.  I have a weakness for sweets. My favorites are peanut butter cups and saltwater taffy.

10.  I went to art school for awhile, but had to drop out when it got too expensive.

11. I'm fascinated by photos from New York City in the 1970s. I'm not sure why, because I obviously wasn't around then and have never been there. Yet I could look at photos like this for hours.

Stephili's Questions

1. If you could live in any time period which would you choose to live in and why? 

I would want to live in the 60s or 70s. From what I've gathered through pictures and books it was such an interesting time to be alive. That and I really like 60s fashions.  

2. Who or what is your biggest inspiration? 

I have two. I'm inspired by my mom, because she's always there for me and is a hard worker in everything she does, yet she still knows how to relax and have fun. My other inspiration is Anna Karina, mostly for her style and the films she's been in, but also she seems like she'd be a cool lady to meet.

3. You just won $2 Million in the lottery…. What are you going to do with the money? 

Pay off my loans and the rest of my bills. Buy a new car and some new clothes. Make a down payment on a house. Get some presents for Justin and my family. Then put the rest in savings. 

4. What is your favorite quote?

"I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious." 
~Albert Einstein  

5. Do you like sunny days or rainy days more?

I like a mixture of both. Like when a day starts out rainy and then the sun comes out. 

6. What is your favorite holiday and why? 

Either the 4th of July or Halloween, I like fireworks and warm weather, but also pumpkins and costumes. 

7. What has been the most memorable moment in your life so far? 

The day Justin proposed to me. I'll remember that day forever! 

8. Post a picture of where you’re from and tell us a little about it. 

I live in an average sized city in Iowa. It's a nice place to live; a good mix of things to do without being surrounded by gazillions (that's probably not a word, is it?) of people.
9. You get to pick where you want to eat. Where is it and what kind of food is served?

I'm by no means a restaurant expert. Take me somewhere with good mushroom pasta and I'll be happy! 

10. List 3 things in your life that mean everything to you. 

Justin. My family. My coworkers. I've met some of my best friends at work and they've become my second family. 

11. What do you love the most about blogging?

Getting to express my thoughts and meet new friends! 

My questions for you...

1.  If you could go back to any age you've been so far, what would it be and why?
2.  Favorite color?
3.  Are you a morning person or a night owl?
4.  Coffee, tea, or something else?
5.  What's something you'd recommend a visitor to do for fun if they came to your city/town?
6.  What's your favorite song at the moment? I need some new tunes!
7.  Would you consider yourself more imaginative or practical?
8.  Do you have any pets? What kind and what are their names? 
9.  Favorite season?
10.  Last book you read? Did you like it?
11.  What is your earliest memory?
