creative blogger award & the liebster award #2

happy tuesday!
gah…is it only tuesday? this week is draggggggging.

this past week i was nominated for the creative blogger award and the liebster award for the second time! you guys are too sweet! i am always so excited to answer the questions given to me and nominate some awesome bloggers!

when i told cale that i was nominated for two more awards he said, “well that’s cool but now you need to win!” haha! i had to explain that a nomination was more like a recognition that people love your blog and think you deserve said award. so then why is it called a nomination…? to tell you the truth… i dunno. but i do know that it’s incredibly flattering and reassurance that people like my little blog. so i’ll take it!

so since this is my first nomination for the creative blogger award i’ll nominate some fellow bloggers and give some fun facts! however, for the liebster, i’ll only answer the questions since i’ve already nominated others for it.

thank you times a million to amanda over on {runningfashblog}!! thank you lady, you are so sweet! y’all go check out her blog and her award post {here}!

here are the questions amanda asked me:

  1. What do you value most in life?
    • love, friendship & family. before i met cale it was just jaz & i and she is what i treasured the most. obviously she is still my most treasured but my little family is what keeps me going.
  2. What is your favourite food?
    • oh man. steak, pizza, pickles, tacos. i love food.
  3. What is the best advice you can give your fellow bloggers about how to get new subscribers?
    • comment! search some of your favorite tags and follow bloggers similar to you and interact with them. don’t expect everyone to like and comment on all of your posts if you don’t reciprocate. and keep your blog fun, be yourself.
  4. Where was your last, best holiday?
    • last best holiday would have to thanksgiving. we hosted our first {hopefully annual} friendsgiving and then went to arizona to be with cale’s family. even though i caught a wicked cold, it was so much fun!
  5. What are three things you cannot live without?
    • my phone
    • the internet
    • my laptop
  6. What’s your favorite post that you’ve written? (Link, please!)
    • oh man. i think right now my favorite post was when my engagement photos were featured in seattle bride magazine {here} it made me feel so special and incredibly proud of one of my bestfriend’s photography skills! she’s a baws! i’m hoping to get the wedding featured too so me, my coordinator & photographer are trying to make sure it happens! keep your fingers crossed everyone! either way our wedding is going to be epic!!
  7. If money was not a factor, what would be your dream job?
    • this is going to sound way nerdy…but i love numbers and i love my job now. but an even better job would be a forensic accountant. i love finding holes in stories, and in this case it would be finding holes in a balance sheet…told ya it was nerdy.
  8. Favourite high street store?
    • i’m too poor to shop at really fancy shmancy stores, nordstrom is the most expensive i will go.
  9. What is a great memory from your past?
    • the birth of my baby girl. even though i was in hell afterward {the epidural hit my spine and i had to be readmitted to the hospital 3 days after i had her and stayed for 2 more while they drew blood from arm and inserted it back into my spine…yikes!} it was still a beautiful moment that i will never ever forget.
  10. Are you a planner? Or are you spontaneous?
    • oh definitely a planner! my wedding is pretty much planned down to the minute and i still have 6 months!
  11. When you have 30 minutes of free time, how do you pass the time?
    • playing spider soiltaire, 2048 or doing sudoku haha


thank you again for the continued support, y’all!
love you guys!

    1. You are so welcome! I love your blog, so many DIY inspirations! And girrrrllll, I’ll be pestering it up! Only poopy thing is I can’t post any pictures on here until it’s (hopefully) featured. Most magazines or websites want exclusivity. 😦
