A Blog Award!

Blogger Award

How sweet!! The lovely Miss Holly @ Just a Small Town Girl hooked me up with a blog award! I haven’t done one/received one in a long time, and this is always fun! Here we go… 

1. What is your current beauty obsession?

Definite Difference Night Recovery Crème! Seriously, it feels like silk on your face!! I load my face up with sunblock & makeup and sweat during the day…(yuck, that sounds gross, huh?), so I LOVE washing my face with the foaming cleanser & my Clarisonic, then lathering up with this!!

2. What is one beauty item you wish you owned?

Can I say a personal hair stylist?? Haha….I guess that doesn’t count as a beauty “item”….so I’m going to go with an airbrush makeup machine. I’m sure there is a more technical name for it, but we’ll just stick with that cuz I’m too lazy to look it up. I had my makeup airbrushed for my wedding as well as for one of my BFF’s weddings, and I LOVED it!! It stayed in place for HOURS and looked totally flawless!!!


3. What kind of posts are you favorite to read and write?

I love hearing people’s personal stories!! I like to read about all kinds of people, with all kinds of backgrounds, and all kinds of testimonies. It’s fascinating to me! And I love to look at their pictures.Duh! Really…..I NEVER watch t.v.- I’d rather read blogs about REAL people any day! (I know some people think that’s weird because I don’t technically know them. Whatev.) And, I really enjoy it if they’re humorous. (The two I skip are fashion posts & recipes. I’m just not that interested in those two topics…)

My two favorite things to write about are fitness and faith. I love all things health related, so I’m very passionate about sharing my knowledge of clean eating and working out….as well as things I learn in my walk with Christ. “Iron sharpens iron.”

4. What inspired you to become a blogger?

Two of my long-time childhood friends whom I’ve remained close to, Emily and Rachael have both had blogs for a while that I read regularly. I loved keeping up with them through their blogs and always looked forward to new posts, so I decided to start my own after Big Jon proposed. I thought it’d be a neat way to document our engagement (I’ve always been into journaling/scrapbooking, so this is just a way cooler way for me to continue those hobbies), and I love that I can get a blog book made out of these posts for my kids to read some day. It kinda just stuck from there and I’ve established some great friendships through the blog. I know some of my friends and family keep up with me this way too….


5. What color nail polish are you wearing right now?

Clear! My OmegaPlex makes my nails grow like CRAZY, so anything else  would probably look tacky on me. I do like a French manicure every now and then when I decide to splurge though!

And now I get to choose 5 great ladies for the Laine Blogger Award! (Seriously, HOW do I keep it to just 5??)

1. Dana @ Now You're My Whole Life

2. Ashley @ Baseball Diamonds & Hairspray

3. CMae @ My Oh My (just changed her name!)

4. Christin @ A Classy, Southern Wife

5. Cait @ Fit, Fierce, & Fabulous

These are always a fun little way to get to know people better. Thank you Holly, for thinking of me!!

Hope you have a FABULOUS week!!!
