* Liebster Award * Fun facts, questions & now it’s your turn!

On Sunday afternoon when I arrived home, I checked in with some of the blogs I missed over the weekend and I had a sweet comment from Kaitlin saying she mentioned me for the Liebster award.

I was so excited! I went to her newest post and read about the Liebster award, learned more about Kaitlin & reviewed the questions she typed up for myself + a few others!

… So what is the Liebster award? It recognizes blogs that have less than two hundred followers. Once nominated, the blogger fills out a fun survey before passing this award onto eleven more blogs they think should be acknowledged.

After receiving the nomination, the blogger must:

1. Acknowledge the nominating blogger
2. Share 11 random facts about yourself
3. Answer 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you;
4. List 11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers (as best as you can tell based on the info provided!)
They should be bloggers that you believe deserve some recognition and a little blogging love!
5. Post 11 questions for the bloggers that you nominated to answer
6. Let all of the bloggers know that they’ve been nominated.  You cannot nominate the blogger that nominated you.

Here are my 11 random facts!:
1- Fact. I snack entirely way to much on nuts/ trail mix!
2- I’m really indecisive when it comes to certain things: Nail colors, coffee flavors, etc.. It’s always a battle! 🙂
3- I’ve been going to the Cape for 23 years and counting. Never missed a summer yet. My home away from home.
4- I got married at the age of 20.
5- ^^ Speaking of, I’ve known George for YEARS prior to getting married.  Our families have known each other since he came to the US to help his uncle with the restaurant. It’s been along time!
6- I was never a morning person {still not quite there} but recently I enjoy my morning ritual that I’ve created.
7- I eat chocolate everyday. In some way, shape, or form. My favorite is having it melted into my oats in the morning 🙂
8- Unlike most people, I really enjoy some good quality time by myself. Sometimes, it’s the greatest company.
9- I’m more of a fruit kind of gal than veggie. I think I eat fruit with almost every meal or snack.
10- I would choose sweat pants, wine & froyo over a club.

11- Coffee is the first thing I have in the morning before anything else. If not, I’m not human.

Questions from Kaitlin:

1. If you could live anywhere in the country (or world) where would it be? Even if it was for just a short period of time.
I’d have to say somewhere in Cali. Possibly SF. It has a great mix of city life, mountains, & beach! I love that it’s a foodie city with a lot of culture.
2. What’s your favorite form of exercise?
3. What is something you have learned from blogging?
How great the blogging community is. I feel so close already to people who I’ve met just through here. Whether it’s on instagram, twitter, daily comments, reading their blog. I love the communication and support from everyone<3
4. Favorite family recipe or family dish?
Hmm.. there’s so many! But one of my favorites is a simple pasta dish my mom makes & places it in a large bowl for us to share.
Bow tie pasta, spinach, chicken sausage, peppers, artichokes hearts, oil, garlic, and fresh shaved parmesan. It’s one of our favorites in the summer time.
5. Introvert or extrovert?
Introvert! ..  “you’ll devote your social energy to the  people you care about most, preferring a glass of wine with a close friend to a
party full of strangers. You think before you speak, and relish solitude. You  feel energized when focusing deeply on a subject or activity that really interests you. You have an active inner life, and are at your best when you tap  into its riches.” truth.
6. Best way to spend a Saturday?
Grabbing coffee from the local coffee shop, walk around town, go to the farmers market, take a hike, bask in the sunshine, & go to the city for dinner.

7. Three things on your bucket list? (such a good question)
Sky dive!, Travel to more countries and enjoy their culture & one day speak Greek! 🙂
8. Current television show obsession?
I just finished  Orange is the new black – on Netflix! It’s was good! I’m looking for something new.
9. Dream job?
Have my own specialty events business, have a large kitchen to produce mass amounts of food for parties while working from home. I want to able to spend time with my future kiddies.
10. Why did you start your blog?
I wanted to grow more, learn more, & explore more into this healthy living. I thought what I put out there could possibly inspire others as well as myself and continue to learn from others!
11. What is one tip for other bloggers out there? (Creation, maintaining it, promotion, etc.)
Write about what you would want to read. There’s always the comparison trap, but don’t get sucked into it. { I know, it can be hard } but just be you, write from the heart and all else will fall into place.
