04 September 2013

Liebster Award Post!

So, as I mentioned in my last post, a few lovely ladies have let me know that they've nominated me for Liebster Awards! Let me explain. This is a peer award that new bloggers can give to other new bloggers with less than 200 followers. It allows people to find your blog and find out some fun new things about you. So, a huge thank you to Carolina Belle, Go Go Mountain Girl, and From Mississippi With Love for nominating me! It's so much fun to make new blog friends!

Here are my short and sweet answers to their questions:

Carolina Belle's Questions

1.  Who is your favorite designer and why?

  • I guess JCrew does't count as a designer, but I've found their clothes to be very practical for work and play. As for actual designers, I love Milly (my dog's name), Trina Turk, and Kate Spade's colorful and fun outfits!
2.  What is your favorite weeknight meal?

  • We make lots of chicken tacos. I also love spaghetti bakes, lettuce wraps (post here!), london broil, and shrimp and grits.
3.  What is your favorite "current" song?

  • Blurred Lines - I can't help it!
4. What website do you visit (almost) daily?

  • I love Yahoo because I can get both my actual news and pop/quirky news. And Facebook/Gmail, of course. 
5.  Chocolate vs Vanilla (or any other flavor)?

  • Chocolate, always!
6.  What is your most recommended wine?

  • For a cheap bubbly wine, I love Contadino (post here!) - only about $5 a bottle at Trader Joes! It really depends on the food for what kind of wine I choose.
7.  Lipstick, Lipgloss, or Lip stain?

  • Gloss - stick & stain intimidate me!
8.  Favorite Pinterest idea - please link.

9.  Most prized possession?

  • My engagement and wedding rings. Dogs don't count, right?
10.  The thing you look forward to every week?

  • Weekends!
11.  Favorite vacation location?

  • Clemson & an all inclusive beach resort (honeymoon style!). 

Go Go Mountain Girl's Questions

1. If there was a movie made based on your life, who would play you and why?
  • Probably Lucy Hale - I'm obsessed with Pretty Little Liars!
2. What was the last thing you Googled?
  • Free Redbox Codes. Yep, admitting it. You're crazy if you don't use these!
3. What is one of your guilty pleasures?
  • Vanilla Ice Cream with flavored balsamic poured on top. Haven't tried it? It's the best.
4. What is something you know now that you wish you knew "then?"
  • Large chocolate peanut butter milkshakes with cheese tots from Sonic at 3am with girlfriends every weekend weren't as completely necessary as we thought in college.
5. What do you consider to be one of your greatest accomplishments?
  • Graduating from law school
6. What is one thing not many people know about you?
  • I play a very limited amount of guitar
7. If you could wave a magic wand and change one thing about your life, would you? What would it be?
  • Yes - new car! And maybe have another dog.
8. What is your favorite Disney movie?

3. If you had all the money in the world, what would be your 1 fashion splurge?

4. Name something interesting about your hometown/the town where you currently live.
  • We're South Carolina's capital and are right in between two of my favorite cities - Charleston and Greenville! 
5. What's the best gift you've ever given or received?

  1. Loved all your answers; totally worth the wait to read them! Those pumpkin poppers are on my Fall to-try list; they look so yummy!

  2. I am convinced we were separated at birth after reading this post! First of all, I am also currently obsessed with "Blurred Lines." Like, so obsessed that I turn it way up and rock out in my car every time I hear it on the radio. PLL is also one of my favorites, Kate Middleton is the best answer to that question ever, and I think a classic giant LV would be so splurge-worthy. Also, we are both lawyers ;)

    Loved this post, and I'm so excited to play along tomorrow! And I'm excited to try that TJ's wine you mentioned...

  3. Thanks for the nomination! Check out my blog tomorrow for my responses to your questions.
