Liebster Award

I am so excited that sweet Sarah Grace at Gracefully Made nominated me for a Liebster Award! This is an award given by a fellow blogger to an "up and coming blog" to help increase their readership.  The award recipient then shares 11 facts about themselves and nominates other bloggers to receive the award.

I came across Sarah Grace's blog during a link-up and have added it to my "must read daily" list! This girl is fun and has a great sense of style and writing voice!

My fun facts: 
1. I would choose to eat vegetables over fruits any day.
2. I am a morning person. My roommates in college literally hid from me in the mornings because they knew I'd be cheerful and want to have a conversation.
3. I have an irrational fear of spiders. I dislike all bugs, but spiders really put me over the edge.
4. Pink is my favorite color, closely followed by purple. I didn't really like purple until I went to TCU, but obviously it grew on me... Go Frogs!
5. Babies and young children bring me such joy. I miss the days when I worked in a daycare, church nursery, and pre-school.
6. I love to write and, when I make time for it, to read. Blogs, magazines, the news, the Bible, a good book, you name it.
7. I think of myself as a quiet leader. It's tough for me to command the attention of a room; I prefer to be the behind-the-scenes organizer and make something great happen.
8. I was born and raised in Texas. I think I could happily live in Dallas/Fort Worth for the rest of my life, but I want to travel as much internationally as possible, and I plan to visit all 50 states.
9. I'm a planner and over-analyzer, but also an optimist. I like to think of it as being as prepared as possible, then rolling with the situation and finding the good.
10. I'm very careful with my money. If I'm going to splurge on something, it's shoes. A girl can never have too many pairs!
11. I was totally a toddler in a tiara, {evidence below} but I promise my parents and I weren't crazy!

I nominate:
Frances at Keynotes
Julie at The Semi Reformed Nerd
Kenzie at Life According to Kenz
Toddlers & Tiaras

Purple for Life
