Exciting news today on the blog! Turns out someone other than my mother and aunts read my blog and kind of likes it. I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award by Kat over at Calif Creations. This is really just a fun way of connecting with and discovering awesome bloggers.
If you don’t know who Kat is, head over and check out her blog! She’s got a great take on surviving the family flu (noooooo!!) We’ve just finally recovered from our round of the flu here thank goodness! It’s been totally freezing here lately, so her post 13 Indoor Activities for an Active Toddler was a great resource for inspiration.
Ok so what is this award?
This is an award given by bloggers to other bloggers they love! It’s a great way to share the love on the internet and learn more about the people behind the screen. It’s basically a virtual “high five” and speed dating combined.
Acknowledge the blog that gave you the award – send them love!

What is your motivation when you get into a blogging rut? I like to get outside with my kids. Mostly I blog about our adventures, so it always gives me new ideas and things to share with the world.
Does your family support your blogging? My family is the best, they love everything I do and believe I’m perfect. LOL. But yes, they love it. My husband is awesome about helping me carve out time to write and pour my energy into something.
What do you hate about blogging? When something on my site goes wrong on the technical end. I’m still learning SO MUCH. I feel like I spend a lot of time googling things.
What is your favorite outdoor activity and why? Hiking with my family. It’s the best time to disconnect from technology and just focus on being together.
Describe your perfect vacation. Going someplace on my bucket list! I have so many places I want to travel, so anytime I get out somewhere is just fine with me.
What is your favorite memory from school? It’s a tie between my 5th grade talent show – I performed a very enthusiastic dance with my besties to Spice Girls, or my Senior Prom – my date was very handsome so I married him (not at prom).
What did you dream of becoming when you were a child? A lawyer
How do you drink your coffee? Preferably with lots of fancy creamer
