I was nominated for the Liebster award by Ashley over at Peaceful Simple Life. I'm really excited about this because I could really use some extra exposure, and this also gives me the chance to get out there and look for other bloggers who have little to no followers (like myself!). 

Here are the rules:
- You must answer the 10 questions posed to you by the blogger that nominated you.
- You must nominate 8 more bloggers and pose 10 new questions to them. (Pick mostly bloggers with less than 500 followers.)
- You may use the below banner, if you wish. :)

Ashley asked me the following questions:

1. What is your blog about? I would consider my blog a lifestyle blog. I post mostly about what's going on personally in my life, but I also post recipes, DIYs, outfit/style posts and since I'm getting married in September, a lot of wedding planning/DIY posts. One of my favorite wedding planning/DIY posts is located here
2. What craft or recipe do you excel at making? I really enjoy cooking, and I have a few go to recipes.  Stuffed shells are my favorite. They're easy to make, delicious and we always have leftovers for days. (Please forgive the quality of that post, it's terrible). I also love making quotes on canvas. They're incredibly basic; you just need paint, vinyl letters and canvas. I love to give those as gifts. Also, I've recently started crocheting, so we'll see how that goes.
3. What is your favorite fashion accessory? I wear mostly the same items everyday: plugs/earrings, my engagement ring, my FitBit Flex and a necklace that my fiance gave me. If I have to choose out of those specifically, my engagement ring (of course), but overall, I really love the look of cartilage piercings. They are so edgy, yet classy and they provide the perfect amount of spunk to any ear.
4. What is your favorite T.V. show? Right now, probably How to Get Away with Murder, but I have a list of shows I watch Sunday-Friday. I also really enjoy Orange is the New Black (when there are new episodes, I watch them all within days) and Bates Motel.  JUST TO NAME A FEW! :)
5. What is one place in the world you would love to travel to? There are so many places I'd love to go, it makes me sad to think I'll never be able to see them all. I would really love to travel somewhere that has a lot to offer naturally, like Australia or South America. That is such a difficult question for me because I've never left the southeast United States, so really I'd just love to go anywhere.
6. What person has had a major influence on your life? Why? My parents. They are both so kind and caring and they love with all their hearts. They've raised me the same way, so I definitely believe that's made me who I am.
7. What movie do you think everyone should watch? Oh, this one is a hard one. There are several movies that I absolutely love, including Whip It, The Big Lebowski, Fight Club, Fargo. Do I think everyone should see these? No. They aren't made for everyone. Maybe Interstellar. The whole family could watch it, maybe not understand it, but it's great.
8. If you had the chance to travel to space, would you do it? No, never. It seems like the most terrifying thing ever. (See Interstellar, above.)
9. Do you have any pets? Tells us about them if you do! Yes!! We have one fur baby, Courage. She is an almost two-year old cat. She's orange and fluffy and she loves me back. She's always waiting for me when I get home. She sleeps on top of me while I sleep. I love her the most. I also have a 7-year old Papillon named Mo (I call him Mosef). I've had him since junior year in high school, and he lives with my parents. He's great and so, so smart. I have a tattoo of him.

10. Describe yourself using only one word. Quirky.
