I was nominated for the Liebster award by cousin Courtney! So, here are the rules of the Liebster award:

1. each person awarded must post 11 facts about themselves. 
2. answer the 11 questions the nominator has set for them.
3. choose five bloggers to nominate.
4. create 11 more questions for the bloggers they will nominate.
5. let the lucky bloggers know.

11 facts about me:
1. I love food. 2. Water is my favorite drink and it goes almost everywhere with me 3. My favorite animals are horses and polar bears 4. fall is my favorite season 5. My mom is an artist and she helped me develop a love for art (and I am picky with it) 6. I could spend hours in Target 7. I am a dog and a cat person 8. I like being in a choir 9. I want to wear lipstick/gloss more, but I always rub my lips together when I do (it just feels so nice) so it just comes off 
10. I love weddings  11. I love to shop for dresses 

questions to answer:
1. if you could tell your 16 year-old self something, what would it be? 
Don't worry about boys so much, they are silly, especially in high school. And don't act like you hate the boys that you have a crush on (I was terrible with boys in high school)
2. what are 3 things that make you most happy right now? 
1. Steven/Steve got a new job! 2. I went to England... does that count? 3. the holidays are coming soon
3. what is something you're passionate about? 
Learning and teaching about creating healthy family relationships
also music. Well-written and well-performed music. 
4. what has been your greatest accomplishment? 
hmmmm....reading The entire Harry Potter series at least 4 times 
5. what do you think people misunderstand most about you?
People say I'm really sweet... but I don't know if that's always entirely true. I have been known to say:
"I want to throw a brick at his/her FACE."
I say this or something similar often.
I also roll my eyes a lot, which I don't even mean to do! which probably means that subconsciously I am annoyed about something. I'm working on telling my subconscious to stop. 
So, I guess I'm trying to say that I'm kind of a mean person
6. what do you hope to be remembered for?
making a difference in people's lives, this redeems me a little from the last question
7. what was the last song you listened to?
"Since U Been Gone" - good ole Kelly

9. if you had a life motto what would it be?
Keep Calm and Carry On

pinterest, the pioneer woman, and martha stewart 
11. what is your essential start-the-day-off item?
facial moisturizer
