Questions and Answers: Liebster Award | Anchors Aweigh


Questions and Answers: Liebster Award

Big thanks to Devon @ La Du It 2 It and Jessa @ Life of a Sports Wife for nominating me for a Liebster award. For those of you who haven't heard about this award, it's not really an award, but it is a cool way to learn about other bloggers and showcase other awesome blogs you love to read! Since I have been nominated, I must answer the questions both Jessa and Devon posted, and then I get to nominate a few other awesome bloggers to showcase! As a nominee for this little honor, I am also supposed to tell some random facts about myself, but you can read those at the bottom of my "About" page. :)

I am going to take a few questions from both Devon and Jessa, so here it goes!

1. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
This is a toughie because my husband and I definitely have the travel bug! I got the opportunity to go to Greece for two weeks my sophomore year of college and loved it, and I would love to go back with Parker some day. I'd probably say Italy though since I've never been there. There is a Navy base in southern Italy, so you never know. ;)
Throwback from my trip to Greece in 2008

2. What is your favorite quote?
Jeremiah 29:11- "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope." This has been my favorite Bible verse ever since I can remember, and I say it to myself multiple times a day.

3. What are you most excited about in your future?
Having hesitation on that one!

4. Are you a dog or a cat person?
Well this should be fairly obvious. I guess if you're unclear on my answer, you can look here, here, here, or here.

5. What is your favorite drink? 
Ready for the most boring answer ever? Water. I love that my parents didn't let us have sodas when we were young because now I don't like the taste. I love ice water and constantly have a glass with me at my desk or in the car.

6. If you could spend a day with anyone in the world, past or present, who would it be?
Parker, my parents, my grandparents, or my sisters. I would opt to spend a day with someone I love over a celebrity any day.

7. What is your calling?
I really believe it is to be a wife and one day a mother. My favorite part of my life is being a wife to Parker.

8. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Pecan Pralines and Cream...mmmm

9. What would be your perfect date night?
Answering these questions may not have been the best idea if I want to keep readers, because here comes another boring answer: getting all dolled up for a nice dinner, seeing a funny movie, and going home to play board games in our pajamas. I know, we're crazies!

10. What is your favorite sports team?
Fightin' Texas Aggies! Gig 'Em!

11. Biggest piece of blogger advice you've received?
Remember why you are blogging. Link-ups and giveaways are fun, but I blog first and foremost as a way to glorify God through our daily lives, chronicle our adventures to one day look back on, and stay connected with family and friends. That said, any blogger who says they don't care about followers is probably lying. Blogging takes time, and it is satisfying knowing people enjoy reading it, but I try to remember those three reasons that I keep this blog.

Oh my goodness Chelsea God is SPEAKING to me right now through your blog. Over the past day I've been worried about the future (funny how birthdays make you reflect on the big picture) and Jeremiah 29:11 has been mentioned over and over in books and on blogs. At first I thought it was just a coincidence but when I saw it on your blog post I remembered your post on providence.

And I totally feel ya on the "boring" thing. I joke with my mom that if I were The Bachelorette all of my dates would be sitting on the couch, watching a movie. Haha.

Thanks so much for nominating me! I am working on the post right now! So you should see it soon! Loved your blogger advice. I have lost interest in some blogs because they are trying to keep up with everything else and I feel they loose sight of why they started!
