Liebster Award

Kara from Nest Candy has tagged me for the Liebster Award. I am super excited to participate in this award. I know, I know, it's a little bit silly, BUT, I have connected some really amazing bloggers via the Liebster award. Here's the backstory....

What's it all about?
 The Liebster award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.

What do you gotta do?
1. Each person must post 11 things about his/herself

2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you, plus create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer.

3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.

4. Go to their page and tell them you've tagged them.

5. No tag backs.

And with no further ado. . . 

1 I am actually afraid of the dark, like for real!
2 My husband is a super handyman. He can fix anything! And he looks hot doing it!
3 I am an only child.
4 I used to be a dental assistant (for 10 years) Now, I am an apparel designer.
5 I went back to college at age 24 (almost 25)
6 My 13th birthday was on Friday the 13th.
7 #13 also happens to be my favorite #. It is not only my birthday (October 13th), but my folks were married on November 13th and my husband’s baseball # is 13
8 I dance when nobody is watching. Like A LOT. I sing too.
9 I am pretty basically obsessed with anything retro. I love me some avocado green and harvest gold.
10 I am a Christian.
11 I am fluent in American Sign Language.

1. What is your go-to confidence boosting outfit?
High waisted , wide leg trouser pants! Oh yeah!
2. What kind of books or magazines do you like to read?
I have a subscription for whole living on my nook. Oh, and I read blogs :)
3. What is your favorite type of craft?
Sewing! I also really have a new found love to designing prints.
4. What's your favorite season / time of the year?
Summer! Always Summer. I’m from Chicago and my husband and I recently moved to Texas. I have really enjoyed the hot summer days. It’s a nice change from a foot of snow and blistering winds!
5. How would you describe your design style?
Simple, eclectic with maybe a little retro flare.
6. Where did you last go on vacation?
Does Chicago count? Or how about hiking trips? My last hiking trip was to Palo Duro Canyon near Amarillo Texas. But, my last real vacation was our honeymoon 2 years ago in Zihuatenjo, Mexico.
7. Where do you get most of your recipes?
I like to make it up as I go! NO really. When I'm surfing sites like Food Gawker I just make a mental note of the dishes I want to prepare, as well as the general ingredients. I don't bake much (which requires a bit of measuring) so, things usually turn out pretty well! You might say I have a knack for cooking...
8. What is your favorite clothing store?
The thrift store and Anthropologie.
9. Do you workout at home, in a gymn, in a class...etc.?
Home. We have a Nordic track Elliptical and a Bow flex. It’s a pretty sweet set up I must say.
10. What are some of your favorite blogs to read?
Lifestyle blogs!
11. What are some of your blogging goals?
My {entire} family and I live 1,000 miles apart, blogging is more than a way to give them a glimpse into life in Texas, My blogging goals seem to bit a bit more personal. I hope that through blogging I learn to think, act, speak, and live with intention. I hope that I learn to engage with people on a more personal level. I hope that I can learn to thoroughly document daily life and I hope through that I can learn to live in the here and now and appreciate THIS moment.  Right now.

1 What makes you most Nostalgic?
2 Where are you from?
