Liebster Award & Craft Night Creation

Last week, sweet Sara from Momentary Memories in the Life of Me nominated me for The Liebster Award! I was honored that she chose my blog as one of her picks!

I've recently become one of Sara's newest followers.  She's a 3rd grade teacher,  a newlywed & is incredibly fun and creative! CLICK HERE to head on over to her blog to check it out! She's GREAT!

The Liebster Award is given to bloggers with 200 or less followers that the nominator thinks deserve recognition for their fabulous blogging abilities.

Here's how the award works. Each nominee should:

1. Choose five blogs to give the Liebster Award to.
2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. Post the award on  your blog.
4. List the bloggers you gave the award to with links to their sites.
5. Leave a comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award.
6. Share five random facts about yourself.

These lovely ladies are all extremely talented in their "blogging abilities." I've learned LOTS from each of them in this crazy fun world of blogging!

I nominate:
Amy at Fresh and Fancy
Kristen at Life with the Ellwoods
Courtney at Little Moments
Courtney at The Broaddus Family
Ashlee at The Broadstreet Family

My little blog wouldn't be here if it wasn't from my cousin Courtney Broaddus and  my sweet childhood friend Ashlee Broadstreet. Thanks for inspiring me & encouraging me to start my own blog. It's been a fun adventure & I'm excited for it to continue!

Now for my 5 Random Facts:

1. My favorite food is Macaroni & Cheese. My favorite drink is Dr. Pepper

2. I've never been able to keep ANY plants/flowers alive, but I recently started a fruit/veggie/herb garden at our new house. And, guess what? It's growing like crazy! More on this soon...

3. In college, I started dating this one, really cute guy my junior year. He invited me to fly home with him for Easter weekend to Chicago to meet his family. {Side note: He was my 1st college boyfriend, I'd only flown in an airplane like 2 times before this & I'd never been to Chicago. To say I was nervous would be an understatement. I was terrified.} We arrived at his house, I took my bags upstairs to the guest room, and as I was walking back down the stairs, I slipped on the first stair and fell all the way down the stairs. And, if that wasn't bad enough, once I hit the bottom of the stairs,  I continued to slide on their wood floors all the way into the family room. Yes, his family ALL saw me trip & fall.  It was a moment full of awkwardness & hilariousness {and pain on my part!}!!!
 Needless to say, I had to marry him after that. :)

4. I'm a Speech Therapist.  Working with kiddos is my passion, but I also love working with adults.  My full time job is working for a fantastic company in Dallas called, Cornerstone Pediatric and I also work PRN for Baylor Medical Center on Fridays & some weekends.  It's a ton of fun & keeps me busy!

5. I love kids more than anything {as I just mentioned} & I can't wait to be a Mommy one day. :)

Oh and one more thing...

This past weekend, our small group of couples got together on Saturday night to hang out.  The guys all went to play golf and the girls had a dinner & craft party over at my house. It was so fun!

All the girls made wreaths. We stayed up until Midnight watching, "Sweet Home Alabama," eating chocolate chip cookies, chatting & crafting. It was much needed girls' time!

Here is my wreath (in progress) & my blurry IPhone picture...

Have a wonderful rest of your Monday!
