I'm excited to report that fellow blogger, Amy at BMJ Blog, nominated me for the Liebster Blogger Award! Its my first
of many to come award and I'm super excited and honored to be recognized.
Liebster, in German, means endearing, valued, lovely... and is presented as a way to acknowledge up and coming bloggers and to help them to be recognized for their outstanding accomplishments within the design and content presented on their blog.
In an effort to share the love and get to know some very special bloggers a little better there are some rules in recieving this award which include answering a few (eleven) fun questions about yourself and passing the torch to (eleven) more new bloggers (with around 200 or less followers) you respect and admire - so here it goes:
A little about me:
1. When and why did you start your blog?
I bought the domain name (Bunnie Hilliard) and kicked it into high gear last October, but I started as a private family blog (Pearls and Khakis) when my little munchkin was born to keep our out of town relatives posted on what we were up to in Atlanta. It also served as creative therapy for me during those long nights of nursing/pumping.
2. Who are your girl crushes?
3. What is your biggest pet peeve?
People who wear provocative clothes (short skirts, cleavage, tight pants) to church.
4. If you could have a second home, where would it be?
Somewhere where the weather is always nice? San Deigo?
Sense and Sensibility starring the lovely Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet and dashing Hugh Grant. Did I mention I'm pretty certain I was supposed to be a British Princess (Duchess, Lady, you get the point).
6. Where is your favorite place to shop?
JCrew. I wish it were some place fancier that that. But they always have just what I need. Cocktail dress, Over Coat, Fancy Belt. Check, Check, Check.
7. If you could have lunch with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be? What would you ask them?
My Granny. She lives in Florida and I am jealous (of my relatives) that I dont get to see her very often. I'd ask her, what she's been up to?? :-)
8. Would you rather take a vacation in the mountains or the beach?
I'll tell you in a couple of weeks. Going to hang out in the mountains for the first time with a few girlfriends.
9. How do you come up with ideas for your blog posts?
I have to remind myself to continue to blog about the things I like, and make me happy, and proud, as opposed to what everyone else is doing. Staying true to myself ensures I continue to get that tingle inside when I hit "Publish."
10. Do you have a daily beauty routine? If so, what is it?
A little scrub and a little Cetaphil. Sloughing off dead skin and staying moisturized are my goals. Just trying to keep the wrinkles at bay...
11. If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I wish I was a better sales person. I'm creative as heck, but I wish I was more of a "closer."
And I nominate these fantastic ladies/blogs in honor of kicking off March - Womens History/Awareness month. From photography, to fitness, beauty, and just being some the best darn mommies around - they inspire me daily.
So ladies, if you so desire, please forward these questions and pick a few of your faves for the Liebster Blogger Award.
I hope you are having a fabulous Friday!!
