Liebster Award


My dear friend Danielle at Sparkles and Lattes nominated me for a Liebster Award. This award is a way to help bloggers that you love to read get a little more traffic. I have known Danielle since my internship in college, so for over 10 years! (Holy shit did you realize it's been that long?!) Anyways she was graduating and I was taking her job and we got to work together for a week while she trained me. We were instant friends and have stayed in touch even after we left Reno. So here's a huge thank you to Danielle for your wonderful friendship. And the nomination too! She gave me 11 questions to answer about myself, so here you go:

What is your guilty pleasure show?
X-Files, still trying to finish the old series before I watch the new one (yep, I'm a nerd). 

What is your least favorite food?
Fennel. The smell makes me gag.

Where was your best vacation?
Burning Man. Costa Rica was amazing as well.

Where did your blog name come from?
From my desire to fill up a journal for once! And also to not be afraid of people reading what I would write in a journal.

If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive) who would it be, and why?
Any of my grandparents or great-grandparents, but especially my mom's dad who died when I was 4. I've grown up hearing so much about him but wish I could've known him myself.

What is your favorite movie?
Not sure. I like all the nerdy ones best probably, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Hobbit, Matrix, Star Trek.

What is one thing you learned from blogging?
The braver I am in my writing, the more people respond.

What was your first dance song when you got married?
Everything by Lifehouse

What is your favorite dessert?
Homemade raw vegan ones like cheesecakes, banana cream pie, chocolate pie. And 85% organic fair trade dark chocolate. Yum.

How did you come up with your children's name(s)?
Sebastian Oliver- Johann Sebastian Bach, Oliver Wood, and Oliver Twist
Oscar Leo- Oskar Schindler, Oscar Wilde, and Leonardo DaVinci

What is your favorite sports team(s)?
None! I find watching sports on TV to be very boring. I'd much rather go do something active then to watch other people be active.

  1. I love this and love hearing how you came up with the boys names. I think we all would love to spend time with our grandparents who have passed. I know that was my answer as well!

    1. Thank you! People always think Sebastian is from the crab in the Little Mermaid! Or Oscar is Oscar the Grouch, which we do call him that when he's being grouchy but not why we chose the name!
