Liebster Award 2015

May 15, 2015

I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award by the always beautiful Kristen at Miss Southern and Emily at Dixie on my Mind! Thanks ladies! I always love learning more about my blog friends and making new friends in the process!

Since I was nominated twice I have double the questions to answer! I promise I won't make my answers too long though.

I will start with Emily's questions and end with Kristen's.

1) What is your favorite season and why?
I don't really have a favorite season, I love them all for different reasons. Spring because of all the new life after the dead winter and all of the flowers. I LOVE flowers. Obviously summer for the warm weather,  lake days, and vacations. Fall for the cool weather, bonfires, and the fall fashion. I love winter for snow, hot chocolate, and EVERYTHING to do with Christmas! But I will say I don't like the cold of winter.

2) Where is one place you are dying to go?
I really love to travel anywhere but I'm dying to spend some time in Europe. You can check out my Top 5 Travel Destinations here.

3) What is your favorite item to wear in your closet right now?
My Lilly for Target dress is probably my favorite right now. I wore it for Nathan's state music competition a few weeks ago and it was perfect! You can catch me in sundresses a lot this time of year.

4) What is your favorite magazine to read?
I don't have a favorite but I enjoy reading People, InStyle, Traveler, and home magazines.

5) What is your favorite book you've read recently?
I didn't have a lot of time during the semester to do a lot of for-fun reading but I do enjoy reading mystery romance novels. Harry Potter still takes the cake though.

6) What is your favorite TV show right now?
Well it was ABC's Forever but since it was canceled this past week I'm gonna have to find a new one. It shouldn't be too hard since I love crime dramas and I watch so many of them.

7) What is your favorite song right now?
I think Meghan Trainor's "Dear Future Husband" is pretty awesome. It is so fun and I just start dancing! Can't help myself! Listen to it here!

8) If you could only shop at three stores for the rest of your life,  what would they be?
This is a tough one! Why only 3?! I would probably choose Old Navy, Macy's, and Victoria's Secret. A girl has to have yogas and undies! You can pretty much get everything you need at the other two stores too.

9) What apps do you use most frequently on your phone?
Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Snapchat, and my Pixlr photo editing app. You can follow along on Instagram, Pinterest, and Snapchat (jennanewsome)! If you want to add me on Snapchat, leave your username in the comments.

10.) What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast or brunch?
I think a better question would be a what do I NOT like for breakfast! The list would be shorter because breakfast food is my favorite type of food. I love eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, gravy, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal and, the list goes on and on!

Kristen's questions:

1) What are two things you can't leave the house without each day?
Well I'd say my purse- phone included, and I always try to grab a bottle of water just in case. That doesn't always happen but, hey! I try!

2) What is the one thing that is most important to you to accomplish each week?
Probably spending quality time with Nathan and my family. We all have busy schedules but, we try to make family & couple time a priority.

3) How has blogging made an impact on your life?
Definitely through the community! The friends I have made are absolutely wonderful and I hope to make even more friends! They are so encouraging and are all really genuine people.

4) Where is the most adventurous place that you have traveled to?
Trujillo, Honduras.We cruised in October and we were the first cruise ship to ever go there. The people were wonderful and the Vice President of Honduras was there shaking our hands.There were TV crews and I was being followed around like I was a celebrity. It was definitely adventurous because there wasn't anything for us to do so we wandered the city. I had a little boy and his sister ask to take a picture with me so that was really cute too!

5) What does your evening routine look like?
After I got home from school I usually do homework, eat dinner, watch some tv/computer time, and then get ready and head for bed!

6) What is your biggest career accomplishment?
Well I've technically never had a job so I'll answer this in terms of school. On my dad's side of the family I am the first granddaughter to go to college and I will be the first person to have a Bachelor's degree in our family. I have a full tuition scholarship for my school and I am President of our Pre-Med organization. I also am part of the Honors Academy and I am conducting my own independent honors research.

7) Your cravings are usually salty or sweet?
SWEET. I definitely have a sweet tooth! I love a good salty snack sometimes but I love sweets. Cake and cookies especially.  These s'mores cookies are some of my favorite.

8) What do you find most attractive in a man?
Hands down a relationship with Jesus and a sense of humor. Nathan and I met in church and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. As my mom likes to say, I can be "uptight" and Nathan is "good for my uptightness" because he is silly and always makes me laugh. Thanks, mom! :P

9) How has life changed the most for you in the past 5 years?
Since I am only 20 a lot has changed! I graduated high school, met Nathan and have been dating him for 3 years, went to college, moved back home to commute to school, and now I am going to be starting my senior year of college just to name a few! Nathan is also graduating in two days and there will be a lot more changes coming!

10) You only have 5 dollars to spend today, what do you spend it on?
Since it's almost summer I would probably spend it on a cola icee. I am not allowed to have caffeine, doctor's orders, but I seriously can't resist! So good! The rest would probably be spent on gum or something.

So now I get to nominate a couple of other people for this!
This, too
Pretty Thing & Co.
