Blonde Girl Nominated For Liebster Award

21 Mar

So today I found out a fellow blogger/friend, Courtney aka FGF, had nominated me for this Liebster award. And I had no idea what it was, but is anyone ever bummed they were nominated for something? Heck no! So it’s for “undiscovered” bloggers as a way to spread the love. So, I have to answer 11 questions she picked, and tell y’all 11 things about myself. Brace yourself, because this could get interesting.

1. If you could meet one person, dead or alive, who would it be?
Ronald Reagan because ‘Merica.

2. Do you believe in ghosts?
Only when I hear random noises in my apartment because I live alone.

3. Where were you when September 11th happened?
Circle time in 2nd grade in Mrs. Deschamps class. I remember being mad because everyone’s parents went to pick them up except mine.

4. If you could have any job, what would it be?
Still have no idea what I want to do. Something that pays well and doesn’t make me hate my life would be ideal, though.

5. Any hoarder obsessions? (Mine is office supplies)
Clothes? Is that a thing? I outgrew the phase of spilling everything on myself and haven’t grown since my junior year of high school so I can’t bring myself to get rid of any but I keep on buying them!

6. Favorite band?
Does DMB count?

7. Dream Vacation?
Europe. The whole damn thing.

8. Hows your green thumb?
Non existent at the moment.

9. Would you go out in public without makeup?
Absolutely. I did today. Sometimes you aren’t feeling it and today was one of those days. I’m comfortable enough in my own skin to not feel like I HAVE to wear it every day, but when I do it’s because I WANT to.

10. If you had to pick ONE thing you were the best at, what would it be?
Practicing for my MRS degree.

11. What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a fashion designer. My plans have since changed, but my youngest sister is keeping that dream alive.

Now for 11 fun facts…….
1. I can put my foot behind my head.

2. I actually don’t understand what all the hype about guacamole is about. It gets weird looking after a day or two in the fridge and I can’t get past that.

3. I do however love queso.

4. I make better friends in the weirdest ways than I do in normal situations. Example: I befriended a girl from my hometown years after we both graduated and bonded over long distance relationships.

5. I am a proud gold card member at Starbucks.

6. I want to do this:

7. I am graduating a semester early.

8. I have no plans of moving back north.

9. If there is an addiction to chick fil a, I have it.

10. I love baking “slutty brownies”, specifically with my boyfriend.

11. I have almost every aspect of my life planned out, except a future job, courtesy of my PinterestPinterest

So that’s it!

Fathers be good to your daughters…mothers be good to your daughters too

11 Mar

It’s been one of those days. I cried listening to a cover of one of my favorite songs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNzCDt2eidg), I cried after shopping. 

I am living an incredibly blessed life, and that is all due in large part, to my amazing parents. I don’t thank them enough, and that is a serious problem. Because of my parents, I will never deal with the stress of paying off student loans. They make sure I don’t “go without”. They exceed any expectations anyone could ever have for parents. It is common for kids to say that they want to do better for their children than their parents did. I truly don’t know if that is possible. My parents are what I consider to be incredibly successful in every aspect of the word. They are some of the happiest people I know. They are incredibly hard working, and have earned everything they have in their life. Above earning these things, they are beyond grateful for them, and realize how blessed they are. They make sure, every single day, that my two sisters and I have everything we need, and then some. They are charitable, and generous in everything they do. They are warm hearted, welcoming people. I have never had a friend dislike them. They are involved, and passionate about what they get involved in. They are geniune. They have supported my sisters and I in every single one of our endeavors, even when our actions were questionable. They have disciplined us to know right from wrong. They made every holiday, family vacation, every day of our lives more special than the one preceeding it. 

I hear about other parents, and I realize that I should be so, so thankful for having those two incredible people behind me every step of the way. 

So, mom and dad, I know you’re reading this. Thank you, for everything the past 19.58 years. I know I wasn’t the easiest teenager to deal with, and I may sometimes cost more than you’d like. But I hope you all are proud of me. 

So! Friends, strangers, thank your parents today. It’s the least you can do.
