 When I was in second grade, the Maverick near my house held a coloring contest. One day as I was catching up on an episode of Arthur, the phone rang.. it was them, calling to inform me I had won! Other than that golden moment, games, drawings, and contests have been nothing but false hope. Until now that is... Rylee Blake has nominated me for the Liebster award, and my excitement is equivalent to when the Maverick cashier said I could pick out a free Laffy Taffy. This award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers and is a great way to get your name out there. So here's how it works.
>> must list 11 things about yourself
>> answer 11 questions the nominee created for you 
>> choose 11 of your own favorite blogs to nominate 
>> create 11 questions for them (or use the previous questions)
>> let them know they've won

To be honest with you, 11 is a pretty hefty number for this kid. So imma break the rules and go with 7.

 About me.
1. I've never worn a pair of matching socks.
2. I hate popcorn. I know I know, "what?" "huh" "how do you live?"
3. There is special place nestled in my heart for kittens, old people, and a nice mustache.
4. Kevin often compares me to an infant, because if I'm cold, hungry, or tired.. I'll more than likely start crying.
5. I'm currently learning Spanish via Rosetta Stone + a patient husband who happens to be fluent.
6.  I did ballet for ten years of my life.
7. My favorite food is cheese.

Questions from Rylee.
1. If you could do anything and money was no matter what would you do?
 become a photographer and travel the world with my love.

2. Favorite holiday
Thanksgiving. (and I'm not just saying that because it's tomorrow.)

3. What goals do you have for the next year?
Save up some serious cash flow for our first home, apply/be accepted into a nursing program (cross your fingers), go to Disneyland.

4. favorite movie
The Grinch. Year round.

5. Who is your biggest role model?
I have several, but my grandpa is someone I've always looked up to. He's such a Christ-like example and is constantly thinking of others... not to mention the fact that he's brilliant.

6. Who has made the biggest impact on who you are today?
My mom. Handsdown. She's taught me everything I know. 

7. What makes you happy?
Kevin Mark. Simple as that.

Your turn.

Have at it ladies.


  1. Katie! I'm honestly so excited. Thanks toots. (Okay, so when my brother Mike was 7 we have a home video of him saying "hey toots" to my mom, and I always end up saying it.) So thanks!
