Feeling the Love

29 Jul

Thanks to Monica from The Atypical Housewife for awarding me, not only one, but two awards!  I am so honored that she thought of me.  Seriously, when I started blogging a few months ago, I never imagined that I would come into contact with so many amazing people!

Here’s are the awards:

Cool, huh?

So, as I am learning, when you receive an award there are always “strings” {a.k.a. rules} attached.

These awards are no different.  Here’s what I’ve got to do:


To visit my bloggy buddy, Monica, over at The Atypical Housewife, click HERE.


1. I have ZERO musical ability.  I mean, I’m not tone deaf but I’m no rock star either.

2. I consider shopping to be a sport!

3. I prefer gift cards as gifts over an actual item {unless it’s one I’ve specifically asked for} because to me it’s “the gift of shopping”.

4. I love to go out to eat.  Yes, there’s the benefit of not having to cook the meal or clean up afterwards, but I really just like good food.

5. I’m addicted to sodas.  I’m not proud of it.  I know they’re bad for me but I just can’t seem to quit.

6. My husband and I only dated for two months before getting engaged and then were engaged only 6 months before getting married.

7. If I could live anywhere in the U.S., I’d pick New York.  Anywhere in the world?  London.  And since I’m dreaming here, my southern accent would magically turn into an English one immediately upon arrival.  🙂


Name your favorite color-
Name your favorite song-
Right now it’s “Your Great Name” by Natalie Grant.  Hear it on YouTube HERE.
Name your favorite dessert-
Hmm.  Believe it or not, I’m not really a dessert person {I’d rather have pasta!}.
But if I had to choose, I’d reach for chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.  Hands down THE BEST ice cream ever!
What wizzes you off-
Hmm… it would have to be rude people.  I just don’t get why some people just insist on being mean.  Being rude or snobbish just makes people ugly, no matter how pretty they may be.
When you’re upset you-
Get alone and talk to myself.
I know that sounds crazy but I have to talk through my problems and sometimes it’s nothing I need to be sharing with anyone else because it would turn into a husband-bashing or gossip session.
Plus, it’s when I quit running my mouth that God begins to speak to my heart and tells me how to handle it.
Your favorite pet-
I have to choose my childhood dog, Bogey, because I do not own any pets right now {unless my son’s beta fish counts}.  We got him when I was eleven and he was such a smart dog!  I say “was” because he died a couple a years ago.  He really was a wonderful family dog and was almost like a brother to my sister and I.

Black or white-
I usually gravitate towards black clothing before white ones but I’d choose a white accessory for my home over a black one any day.
Your biggest fear-
Being robbed at gunpoint {knock on wood}.  Sometimes I lay away at night worrying about it.
I know it’s crazy but that really is the thing I fear the most.
best feature-
Depends on who you ask.
Ask my husband and he’d tell you it’s my backside.
If I must answer, I’d have to go with my eyes because the good Lord knows I’m not liking much else these days {gotta get back to working out!}
Everyday attitude-
Content but hopeful.
I’m happy with my life but I’m so excited about the future.
What is perfection-
Outside of Jesus there is no perfection.
So, if you’re asking me to define what perfection is today, I’d have to say “a myth”.
Guilty pleasure-
Right now it’s watching shows like “Cashmere Mafia” and “The City”.
I know this probably makes me a total dork but I kind of like to think of myself as an “undercover dork”.  🙂


1. The Scott’s Crib

2. A Simple Life

3. Home Preferred

4. Erin’s Fit Life

5. La Buena Vida

6. Life {Sweet} Life

7. Joy in the Jumble

8. Walnut Acre

9. Getting the Skinny on Getting Skinny

10. Intentionally Living…

I hope you ladies like the awards!  🙂
