Get To Know Me - Liebster Award

I was recently nominated by Tina over at Go Big or Go Home  for a Liebster Award. I was going to wait till next week to post this, but since so many of you are new I thought you could get to know me a little bit through Tina's questions. Thank for the nomination! Here are her questions she asked me.

1- What’s your blog about?

My blog is about me and family and everything else in between. I started it back when I discovered Pinterest (really late the game on that one, I resisted for so long) and then thought hey I have DIY projects I do. A blog is the only way to get it on pinterest. I can do that. And so my blog was born. But while I was writing up my intro, I realized I also wanted to work on my fashion, so I threw that in there too. Over the years it's grown to be my outlet for anything and everything I am thinking of at the time.

2- What did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was really young, kindergarten till 3rd grade, I wanted to be a Veterinarian. But then realized I am allergic to pretty much all furry animals, plus I was super allergic to flea bites, like really allergic...you know no idea. I didn't want to just specialize in reptiles cause let's face it, they freak me out. Dreams crushed....

Then about 3rd grade I was reading a story in school about an icktheologist, a person that studies fish, and I really wanted to be that and specialize in sharks. I found, and still do, find sharks fascinating. Every since watching Jaws, totally seems backwards right? But nope, I wanted to study sharks, probably until high school. Then found out in 10th grade that I am deathly afraid of the ocean. Like I won't even go in it. I thought, well I can send someone else down in the cage of death to get the information I need and I'll do the research from above....there was another dream...


3- What is your favorite beauty product?

I'm not sure if this counts as a beauty product, but I cannot live without my face wash and face cream. I've been using this stuff for years and it just makes your skin feel so soft and clean. Hands down this is my favorite beauty product of all time.

4- What brand is your favorite pair of jeans?

Hmmm...I don't think I have a favorite, I know what are favorites in my closet. I love my Vigoss Skinny jeans (similar), they fit great, are stretchy and are my go to jeans if I'm wanting to wear skinny jeans.

My other favorites, which I don't really wear that often are my White House Black Market boot cut jeans. Man these things are COMFY. I've actually only worn them once, because I have to wear super tall shoes with them, but man are they comfy! I'm bringing them with me on our trip. If I do end up wearing them, I'll make sure to take a proper picture.

The only picture of me wearing them...poor quality but what can ya do?
5- Tell me about your favorite day in your life!

Wow there are so many favorite days in my life. Back February Andrea asked us our Ground Hog Day...this day isn't an actual day, but it would be my favorite repeatable day. As far as actual days, I think I would have to pick our wedding day (turns out I've never really shown you pictures of our wedding, that must change).

After that I would chose the birth of Baby Fox and Mini Fox.

6- Why did you start blogging?

I actually started blogging before we got pregnant, when we decided we wanted to try to have a baby. I blogged to document the journey to parenthood (private blog), then after Baby Fox was born, and I discovered Pinterest, I started blogging for me. To document my projects, my fashion journey and then it changed into my everyday thoughts and dreams. Whatever I feel like blogging about. I love it, the people that I've met and it's something just for me.

7- Where is your favorite place in your house?

I just blogged about this. I think it would have to be our Master Suite.

Toys and all....

8- Coffee or tea?

Neither actually. I can't handle caffine, it makes me jittery, and I don't particularly care for tea...maybe some hot chocolate?

9- Tell me about your favorite DIY project.

I love throwing parties. I love making crafts for parties. Here's my 5 tips to throwing an awesome party.

I think my favorite DIY project from Mini Fox's 1st Birthday is the ladybug wreath I made.

And the second one is the construction party I threw for Baby Fox's 2.5 birthday party.

10- Where do you get outfit inspiration?

Right now a lot of my outfit inspiration comes from Alison. She tells me what to wear and when to wear it. She's been telling me for about a year now.

I'm going to let her keep telling me what to wear in the Spring Challenge. Sign ups* are right now! So get on the band wagon and join me and the other amazing ladies in the Challenge and let Alison tell you what to wear too!

Thanks for getting to know me a little better!
