A Sweet Blog Award

Newlyweds in New Jersey Sara gave my blog an award! How kind! We've been following each other's blogs for almost a year now and I enjoy reading about their life! She also has another blog that predates her married life.

Liebster is a German word and it means, sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. The award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers.

1. What is your favorite Bible verse? This one definitely changes! Right now it's Romans 8:38-39: "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
2. How long have you been married? Four and a half years! We'll hit five in December; I can hardly believe it! It's flown by.
3. Where do you like to shop? For clothes? Penney's and Cato's for the most part
4. What is your favorite restaurant? Outback! Bloomin' Onion, anyone??
5. What state were you born in? Do you still live there? I was born in Tennessee and live in Kentucky now (barely!) Apparently, I have a thing about living near state lines :)
6. What are your hobbies? I love to read, play sports (especially volleyball!), cook, and do art stuff. Yes, I call it stuff.
7. List three words that best describe you. Maybe I should ask my husband? haha I would say "enthusiastic,. I really did get stuck here and my husband said "caring," and "intelligent." I'm glad he has such a high opinion of me!
8. What is your favorite book? Outside the Bible? "Just Above a Whisper" by Lori Wick. I can't tell you how many times I've read that book.
9. What advice would you give a first time mom? Find a wiser, older mom and ask her advice frequently. Start training your children early; they are exceptionally intelligent little beings! Oh, and enjoy it all! It goes by so insanely fast!
10. Why do you blog? I love having my recipes where I can find them! And it helps me remember what I'm learning if I write about it!
11. Where do you see yourself in ten years? By the grace of God doing the same thing I am now. Loving my husband, raising my children, and serving in our local church.
