Sisterhood of the World Bloggers award

I was nominated by the awesome Kristi of Alligator Toe for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!  Thank you so much Kristi!  This made my entire week!  Anyway, the rules are as follows:

-Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site
-Put the award logo on your blog.
-Answer ten questions.
-Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer
-Nominate ten people

So, I will answer Kristi's questions because I love this kind of thing and then I'll nominate a few other ladies! Here are Kristi's questions:

1. What is your current favorite TV show (or shows if you can't pick one)? Nate and I are really hooked on a few shows right now that we have recently discovered the brilliance of - Masters of Sex, Manhattan and The Lottery.  We like shows with a lot of intrigue and these three definitely have our attention!  I am looking forward to some of my favorite fluff shows returning soon - mainly Modern Family and the Big Bang Theory.

2. Who do you think has the best style (celebrity, designer, friend, whoever - you pick!) - I have to say Megan and Nora of two birds have the best style of anyone I know!  I look to them as inspiration and proof that you can be a mom and still look good!

3. What type of pajamas/slouchy leisure clothes are your favorite?  I look forward to the end of the day when I can pull on my stretchy yoga pants and a baggy pullover sweatshirt!

4. What do you like to do in your free time? I like reading, taking a nice warm bath, baking, going on walks with my boys, watching a good movie, playing disc golf or regular golf, and going out for a nice lunch or dinner.

5. Who is your biggest celebrity crush of the moment? (Male or female) Hmm, I'm still a pretty big Grobanite - I love my Josh Groban!  I'm a giant nerd!

6. If you had your own fashion line what would it be called?  How fun!  I think I would call my fashion line "Well Plaid" - it's a bit of an inside joke with some friends of mine as a word play on the phrase "Well played".  I think it would suit me because I love plaid!  I think it would be a lot of patterns and bright colored items.

7. What was your favorite toy/thing to play with growing up? I loved Care Bears, Barbies, My Little Pony and baby dolls - my favorite of which was a Cabbage Patch Kid named Willie.

8. Describe yourself in five words: Blessed, happy, loved, reliable, musical

9. What do you want to be when you grow up or what is your dream job? I refuse to grow up!  Ha, kidding.  I think my dream job honestly is to stay at home with my son, but until I win the lottery that sadly just can't happen.

10. How/why did you start your blog? I started my blog initially because I was bored with getting dressed for work each day and I enjoyed reading other "outfit of the day" blogs, so I decided to make my own as a way to remix my closet better.  Over the years it has evolved to be more lifestyle based instead of just fashion as I enjoy telling the stories of my life and using this as a tool to remember things I did and places I went.  I also like blogging about my life as a mom and a wife.  I still enjoy style too.  So, I just blog about all of it!  It's a mishmash of things, I consider it my online scrapbook.

That was a ton of fun!  And now for my nominees:
Shea of Shea Lennon
Jess of J's Style
And really anyone else who wants to play along because I'm too lazy to nominate ten people!

My questions:
1. What does your perfect pizza look like?
2. What is your favorite beauty product?
3. What is the best vacation you've ever been on?
4. What are you reading right now?
5. Coffee, tea or neither?
6. Be honest, do you floss every day?
7. Do you like your name or do you wish you could have a different one?  What would you choose if you were to have a different name?
8. What is your favorite season?
9. I'm stealing Kristi's here - describe yourself in five words.
10. Are you a vanilla or chocolate fan?

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. I LOVE these! I will have to do this next week, thanks for linking me up! I love Two Birds too, they always have a cute story to go along with their posts as well. I love baking and hanging out with my guy too :)

  2. Thanks for nominating me Beth! I'll have to answer your questions soon. And I pretty much started my blog for the same reason, and it's evolved too. I kind of like it that way. So many of the blogs I started reading (and still read) started as mostly style blogs (Jen Loves Kev for example) but have evolved into more based on what's going on in their lives. I love the evolution!

  3. I'm so glad you found "Masters of Sex"! The actors in that are my favorite and the show is developing nicely. And I'm equally entranced by the fashion of Megan and Nora. Lovely women. What a nice post. I enjoy learning more about you.

  4. How fun - thanks for the nomination!! I've got a lot of love for Nora and Megan too, and as much as I love putting together a fun outfit, I really love coming home and changing into pajama pants and a hoodie too. :)


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
