Thank You Gabrielle from the awesome blog, 1st & Warren, http://www.firstandwarren.com/, for nominating me to win the Liebster Award! I'm honored :)

The Liebster Award is a bloggers award that is designed to help small blogs grow. Here are the rules:
  1. Thank and link back to the person who nominates you.
  2. Answer the questions given by the person who nominates you.
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.
  4. Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer.
  5. Let the nominees know they’ve been nominated!
The 11 questions Gabrielle asked are:

1. What is one thing someone would be surprised to know about you? 
that I am extremely claustrophobic - which means I have trouble going through tube slides at water parks

2. Why did you get into blogging? 
I got into blogging because I have too many passions, I can't pick one, so it satisfies me (and my ADD brain) to write a little about the things I love

3. If you could own anything in your closet what would it be? 
this is an unfair question, because FIRST, I would want a body that could fit in these clothes. BUT if I could own anything that fit? It would be a Trachten jacket from Gorsuch in a great color with all those cool buttons

4. Song currently playing on your radio/iPod? 
"All About that Bass" by Meghan Trainor. She's from Nantucket, my favorite place in the world, is curvy, and the song's all about girl power. How can you not be inspired by her?

5. What is the best or worst date you have been on in your life? 
OMG - the worst date was when I was in college and this guy was a really snobby, pompous jerk. He tried to show me how to "properly drink" brandy in a snifter. I was a Freshman! Why would I care how to drink brandy? I get downing it like a shot just to make the date end faster.

6. Tumblr or Pinterest? 
Pinterest - but my kids probably prefer tumblr

7. What is your favorite blog post that you have written in the last year? 
That's a hard one! I loved doing my THE No-Stress Gift Giving Guide because writing it connected me to so many cool people, but my favorite visually has to be my Sunrise-Inspired Arrangement. That arrangement lasted so long and made me smile every day!

8. Which celebrity do you religiously follow on Instagram or Twitter?
on twitter? it's Adam Sandler because he makes all these funny Boston sports jokes and I'm a HUGE Boston sports fan. On instagram, pinterest etc., I drool over anything by my friend Colin Cowie - sigh... 

9. What fad have you tried and did not like? 
This will age me a lot(!) but the Dorothy Hamilton (famous Olympic figure skater for those too young to know) haircut! It was SO bad because my hair is super thick and wasn't feathery and pretty which was all the rage in the later 70's so it ended up looking like a mop on my head.

10. What is your favorite dessert at the moment? 
since Valentine's Day is coming up (and my husband will be away, boo hoo) , I am dreaming of chocolate covered strawberries. Maybe I'll do a post on them!!

11. What is your favorite article of clothing as a child and why?  
It was actually something I coveted of my mum's. She had this (come to think of it, 100% polyester - gag!) striped turtleneck complete with a zipper up the neck (!) that I looooooved. My mum promised me that when I was older, she would give it to me. Alas, that never happened, so my next favorite item was anything by Lilly Pulitzer, and I owned a lot :)

The 11 questions I'm asking my nominees are:
1) If you could receive your favorite flowers for Valentine's Day, what would they be?
2) What's your favorite recipe you've tried in the past month? (and are you willing to share)
3) What book is sitting on your coffee table right now?
4) Beach or Mountains? Why and where's your favorite?
5) If you could invite anyone to a dinner, who would it be?
6) What's your favorite cocktail?
7) Who is your favorite jewelry designer?
8) Who or what inspired you to blog?
9) What's your favorite saying and why?
10) What was the weirdest job you ever had? (Mine was being the official White House Easter bunny, although I loved every minute!)
11) If failure wasn't an option, what would you want to achieve?
