Time for an Award!

Alexis over at Our Journey Through This Lovely Life gave me this award. Thank you!!!

Liebster is a German word and means, sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. The award is given to followers with less than 200 followers.

The wonderful Alexis gave me 11 questions to answer about myself:

1. When and why did you begin blogging? I started to blog in September 2011. I had no idea I was approaching the year mark!! I began to blog as an outlet for my struggle with infertility. I also thought it would be a great way for friends/family to stay updated on what was going on with our IF struggle.

2. Whats the most daring thing you've ever done? I'm not really a daring person...probably moving. We moved to Chicago (from a relatively small college town) and have since moved to Tennessee. All of our immediate family lives in Iowa and Wisconsin so moving so far away was an adjustment. However, I'm glad we took the chance because it's worked out in our favor!!

3. What is your favorite type of music?
I listen to everything but heavy metal. My favorite is country music, but I flip through the stations and listen to a mix of any and everything!

4. Where is your favorite place to shop?
Depending on what I am shopping for, a few favorites are Target, New York and Company, Gap and Dilliard's.

5. Where is the most amazing place you've vacationed?
I adore anywhere with a beach. Jamaica has a special place in my heart because we got married there. We got married in Runaway Bay but have also visited Negril. LOVE both!

6. What's your favorite movie?
I love Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind because of the amazing concept. If you could erase your memories from the past would you? Sure, you can forget all the heartbreak and loss, but you'll also lose out on all the love and positive moments that were intertwined in the memories as well. It's an old movie, but I love it!

7. What color is your current nail polish?
I'm not wearing any on my fingers or my toes. I ALWAYS have my toes painted, but I've gotten too big and swollen to care what my toes look like these days.

8. What's your most embarrassing moment?
I'm never afraid to embarrass myself..I've done my fair share of tripping in public places.

9. What do you love most about your life?
I generally love where I am in life right now. Everything seems to be working out and I have a complete sense of peace with my life. I am very thankful to have found the love of my life to walk through life with. I can take on anything with him holding my hand by my side.

10. What is your biggest fear in life?
Dying alone. I see patients who are elderly and don't have anyone to be with them in their last moments on Earth and it breaks my heart.

11. What's your favorite thing to cook?
I love cooking lasagna and chili...both winter foods! I'm over the heat of summer :) No matter what I cook I'm sure to add some cheese somewhere-you can take the girl out of Wisconsin but not the Wisconsin out of the girl!!
