Liebster Award

Last Week I was nominated by Travel the Unbeaten Path for a Liebster Award. I am so excited that I was chosen because I have now made a new friend and hope to make many more and connect more mommies together.  

A Liebster award is passed around the blogging community to support, encourage and get to know each other and our growing blogs. Here’s how it works: I answer 11 questions posed to me by the person who nominated me. Then, I nominate 11 other bloggers who have less than 200 followers and ask them 11 new questions. I let them know via social media. Then, they thank and link me, and do the same!

My Answers:

1. How did you come up with your blog’s name?
In the last four years I have made a lot of changes in my life from moving  to a new country, getting married, and having a baby. There are a lot of adventures I've had and lessons I've learned and I thought that sharing all these transitions in my life with others would help me connect with other moms out there. 

2. Of all the posts you wrote until now, which one is your most favorite and why? (Add a link!)
Well I only have four so far lol, so lets see I guess it would be the A Little Bit About Me page. It made me look at my life again and think about the things I do have, and to remember to appreciate those thing. Also to look back at the person I was before and the relationship me and hubby had before, it will be nice to get back to that person I once was and try and get back the romance me and hubby once had lol. It is easy to forget about everything else in get stuck in an every day rut. 

3. What's one of your favorite personal qualities/characteristics?
I like to give to others. It is always nice to be able to give and do things for others and watch them smile and be filled with happiness.

4. What's your love language?
I would have to say either gift giving or acts of services.

5. Are you a planner? Or are you spontaneous?
I like to believe that I am a planner. I like to know what's going on so I can be prepared for what coming. Then again I think I would be ready at any moment to get out of the house and take a road trip or travel somewhere if the chance came up. This was one thing I loved as a kid, my dad would wake us up one day and say get dressed we are leaving and we would be going on some big adventure for the day or weekend.

6. What is your idea of a perfect trip?
Being able to travel with my whole family together. I usually have to travel back to the states alone, and now I have Lexi to take with me, but I would like to go pretty much anywhere with my baby girl and my hubby at the same time. Having enough money would help out too lol. 

7. Who's a source of inspiration for you?
I have to tell you just getting back into blogging and meeting all you great mommies out there on sites such as Mom Bloggers Club and The Best Mom Blogs has been such an inspiration for me. It is so nice to find you ladies who are able to do it all and still come home or stay at home with your kids and still keep it together. I don't feel so alone in the process anymore. So Thank You!

8. What is your favorite quote and by whom?
"Try not to take thing personally. What people say about you is a reflection of them not you."
This is one thing I must remind myself of daily.

9. What's one piece of advice you are tired of hearing from others?
I got a lot of advice when I was preggers, but the one thing I could not stand hearing any more was "don't worry the morning sickness only last a few months, it will get go away soon." Well let me tell you it didn't. From the moment I found out I was prego till the moment Ms. Lexi was born I was sick as a dog.

10. And what's one that you would like to share.
"It will get better soon" The first year of raising my lil girl was not the easiest especially since she was born with acid reflux, I thought I would never sleep again in my life. I remember crying everyday and my aunt margo always telling me don't worry "It will get better soon" over and over, and it was hard to believe but it did get better. So far all you new mommies out there remember this one thing. 

11. What's your guiltiest pleasure?
Eating chocolate. I never really like chocolate before Ms. Lexi arrived, but now at times I feel like I just need that chocolate fix.
