The One with the Award

Well hello there Monday! I'm so excited that you're here because it literally means that Thanksgiving is right around the corner and that means that turkey and mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce are very close to being in my tummy. Yum!!! 

Ok, so before I make myself hungry just thinking about the deliciousness that is Thanksgiving, today I'm so excited to be nominated for the Liebster Award by Malia from Just Wandering


If you haven't heard of the Liebster it's a great way to let other bloggers know how much you love them. It's also a great way to learn more about the blogger and discover other blogs because the nominee has to answer 11 questions about themselves and then nominate 11 other bloggers with under 200 followers. It's a win-win!

Ok so now that I told you to that, let's get to the questions. I love these questions by the way, thanks Malia!!!

1// How did you decide on the title of your blog? 
Well if you've been around the blog awhile, you know that it used to be called Army Ever After. After a year of blogging under that name and rarely writing about anything army-related, I decided to change the name to something a little more me. 

Elizabeth Loves originally was the name of a recipe blog I was going to start. I believe my idea was originally Elizabeth Loves Cooking, quite creative right?! Yeaaah no, anyway, I started thinking about all the things I wanted to write about on the blog and couldn't come up with anything that was general enough but yet specific to me. And that's when using Elizabeth Loves popped into my head and the next day I had a new name, a new domain, and a new blog design. Because that's just how Elizabeth rolls. 

2// What one word sums up the heart of your blog and why?
Ok, so it's really hard to sum something up in one word. Uhhhhm, random?? At least right now it's pretty random. The new year is going to bring some changes in the content and I've already started changing my mindset towards this little blog so hopefully random won't be the defining word for it next year. 

3// What's your favorite pastime other than blogging?
Designing, hands down. I used to count reading as one of my favorite hobbies also but I've kind of fallen off the reading train lately....although, does reading blogs count as a hobby outside of blogging? 

4// What is your favorite aspect of blogging?
The community I've found definitely! I love the interaction between all of us bloggers and I've met so many lovely ladies I wouldn't have otherwise.

5// Which recipe, project, or idea on my {Malia's} blog would you most like to try yourself?
I honestly thought Malia's Halloween costume was the most gorgeous I've seen in forever. I love the whole masquerade ball feel and how ingenious she was in making it. 

6// Where does your blog inspiration come from?
Anywhere! I find a lot of my inspiration in my life, from other blogs, my interests.....the list could go on really. 

7// What is one country in the world you'd like to visit? Why?
There's too many....I just can't decide on one. A continent I could decide on....Europe...as in all of it. I love the history there and would love to experience the different cultures of my heritage, especially of France and the United Kingdom. 

8// If you have children, what are their names? If not, what are your favorite boy & girl names?
Believe it or not, Zach and I have already picked out the names of our future children...middle names and all. Well that is if we have exactly two boys and one girl.....if we have any combination that is not 2 boys and a girl we're going to be lost but right now are top picks are Jason, Logan, and Madelynn. And I'm pretty proud of myself because Logan is the only one that stems from a TV crush. #winning #guesswho

9// A long lost relative leaves you a large sum of money, what do you do with it?
First off I'd pay off all of our debt....we don't have a lot of debt but what we do have I'd love to be rid of. I'd put a good chunk of it in savings, give some of the money to both mine and Zach's parents, donate another good chunk to a charity like Wounded WarriorsNo Kid Hungry or Unicef and invest the rest until we decide to buy a home. 

10// In your opinion, what is the best blog post you've written so far {include the link}?
Hmmm....I'd like to think that I've written quite a few good ones. But by far this one was my favorite to write. It feeds my Gilmore Girls obsession. 


11// What is your favorite food?
Again, super hard question. You all know my obsession with McD's fries, but because I'm in a Thanksgiving mood today, I'd have to answer mashed potatoes with gravy. They're literally the bomb.com. 

Did you learn something new about me? I hope so! 

I've been nominated for this award a few times so I'm opening up my nominations a little bit for this one. I nominate ALL of you!! If you decide to do this post, make sure to link to your post in the comments so I can come check out your answers!!!
