New Look, and Liebster Award!

Hey y'all! Things look different around here don't they?!

That's because the lovely Rachel from Sunshine and Sinatra gave me a makeover! I highly recommend her to all of you! She's amazing at what she does and my blog has never looked cuter!! I'm loving it sooo much! Thank you so much girl! <3

SO, I got nominated for a Liebster Award from Alissa from This Elegant Awkwardness. Pretty cool, right? 



The Liebster Award helps us smaller bloggers gain recognition and some more followers in this crazy world!  The rules for the award are:

1: Link back to the lovely person who nominated you! ( Thanks again, Alissa!)

2: Answer the 11 questions that person gave to you!

3: Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.

4: Make up 11 questions for them to answer!

5: Post 11 facts about your self!


The questions Alissa gave me were..

1: What's your favorite quote? "Not all those who wander are lost" J.R.R Tolkien, the rest of the poem is lovely as well!

2: Biggest Fear? Okay, I have two. I'm really afraid of snakes. Like, deathly terrified. I've had too many run ins with them and just thinking about it makes me want to cry. I've also had a reoccurring nightmare where I lose my teeth, and thats a really scary thought to me since my family paid so much for my dental work. Teeth are really important to me, so I like to keep them nice, and not falling out!

3: If you could have any pet, what would it be? Okay, besides cats since I already have those, I'd really like a Ferret. They're cute and they kill snakes. Mongoose also do that, so that wouldn't be a bad option either.

4: You just got a million dollars, what would be the first thing you do? Travel. I want to see the world and the only thing holding me back is funds. I'd also love to give some money to our local animal rescue shelter, and to my alma mater's marching band and winterguard since I know we were always struggling with money!

5:What is your favorite book, ever? Growing up with two parents that both teach English for a living.. I've read sooooo many books so this really hard. I think a book that I really enjoyed, and inspired me was Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.

6: Where do you wish you were right now? On a beach with all of my best friends! Not in Ohio where this blizzard is happening! :(

7: Which character from a book/movie/tv-show do you wish you could be? Blair Waldorf. Have you seen her wardrobe?! 

8: What is your dream job? Honestly, being a doctor. I don't have the math skills for that though! 

9: If you had to change your name to something crazy, what would it be? Schuyler! That's not really crazy though, and I already named a cat Schuyler, but it's a pretty name!

10: What is your favorite animated movie? Either the Lion King or the Aristocats. 

11: What is your most awkward moment? Ha well, it only kind of involved me but it's a really funny story. So, back in my marching band days, I was in color guard and before a football game, I was getting ready with two of my friends in the womens bathroom at my school. What we didn't know was that everything that we were talking about could be heard in the mens bathroom. So we were talking about like, one of the girls sex life and who we thought was good looking in band, and who was bangable. Really embarrassing stuff... So when we walked out of the bathroom, our band director walks up to us and says "You ladies have a real false sense of security in that bathroom"  He had heard EVERYTHING. 

Update:: I got another nomination! Thank you Daniela from Lifestyle with Danny! Here are the questions she asked me!

1: Why did you start your blog: Honestly, cuz my friend Rachael had one, I always read it and I thought it would be fun to have my own! I also wanted a place to review products I use, post recipes, and talk about places I traveled.

2: What is your favorite tv series/ show? Oh geeze, this one is so hard. I'm such a netflix and dvd junkie! This also make me sad because most of the shows I like have been cancelled/ended :(  I think I'm going to go with... Arrested Development. It's a fantastic show about a super dysfunctional family, and the best part is, even after re-watching the series thousands of times, I'm still catching new jokes every time I watch!

3: What is your opinion on One Direction? I don't mind them, but I'm not a hardcore fan or anything. Their songs remind me of working at Cedar Point, honestly.

4. Favourite song at the moment? Save Rock and Roll by Fall Out Boy

5. If you could choose one food for life, which would it be and why? Probably chicken because it's super versatile!

 6. How was your first kiss? I don't even remember it, or who it even was with but lets get real. It was probably super awkward. 

7. What has been your biggest fear in life? Snakes/ Losing my family/ Losing my teeth

8. If you could go back in time, what part of you life you come back? I actually don't think I would, I'm perfectly happy with how things are going right now!

9. If you could change a mistake in your life, what would it be and why? I've made plenty of mistakes, but I wouldn't change them. Things I would change would be more like, trying harder in school, and things like that.

10. What has been the craziest thing you've done in your life so far? I think.. road tripping down to Florida, just to spend two days there... Mind you it's a 20 hour drive from where I live!
