Liebster Award

This little space of mine has grown so much in the last few months and I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Amanda, Rowan and Taylor! I decided to take a few questions from each person and answer them all in one post! Thanks so much for the nomination!

1.) What is the inspiration you have to keep you motivated daily?
My mom. When I feel unmotivated to do something I think about how busy she was and how she still put my sister and I first before everything. I think back to what she would have said to me if I had spent the entire day just laying around.
2.) What is ONE thing you could NOT live without? phone. I know totally cliche but I really could not live without my phone...especially in those really awkward moments when you pretend to be on the phone to avoid someone. 

3.) What is your favorite food? Favorite candy?
My favorite food is hibachi food - LOVE the white sauce! And my favorite candy is 100 Grand Bars.

4.) If you won $1 million in the lottery, what would you do with it?
Love that this was a question because my best friend and I were just talking about this the other day. We were talking a lot less money about $10,000 but we said we would blow some of it and then put the rest into savings. I would probably spend about $3,000 all on Lilly Pulitzer clothes and then pay off all my student loans, my car and pay off the house Timmy and I are living in for my dad.

5.) If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?
1- My mom to be alive.
2- To have time during the day to get everything done I want to get done.
3- Meet the Backstreet Boys!

6.) What is something you do when you need to take time for yourself?
Lately, I have been going to the gym but shopping always helps too!

7.) What are you currently watching or reading?
I am not a big reader but I am currently re-watching all of Friends on Netflix!\

8.) What is it that you love the most about blogging?
I have really loved the support I have gotten from people I don't even know. I have felt the most comfortable in this little blogging world and feel like I can really be myself.

9.) What is your favorite scripture?
Revelation 21:4
"and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; for the old order of things have passed away."

10.) What would you do if you couldn't use the Internet or TV for a month?
I would probably be OKAY without TV but the Internet thing...I would probably loose my mind.

11.) What is one country in the world you would like to visit? Why?
I am dying to visit Italy. I am not sure why I just love the look and feel of Italy!

I would totes love to meet the BSB too and Italy is awesome! But the smaller cities are what make italy so great, sure the more known ones like naples and rome are great, but there are better options that are lesser known. I'm also rewatching all of friends on netflix, LOVE IT
