"It's a major award!" (name that movie)

Hint: It has something to do with a leg lamp.

Maddie, a cute girl from over at With all our Hearts gave me the Liebster Award. :)

I love her blog. Go check it out.


So, she gave me some questions to answer. Here we go!

1. What is your favorite hobby or activity? One that really makes you feel happy and peaceful?

Hmmm... I have a few. Reading and cooking definitely qualify. Another one is kind of dorky, but I really love organizing things. Happy? Yes. Peaceful? My OCD says yes haha. It's so therapeutic. I'm a dork. I know. ;)  I don't know if teaching counts as a hobby since it's my profession also, but I really enjoy it too. It's really satisfying.

2. What is something about you that nobody knows?

It's kind of hard to think of something that NOBODY knows... hmmm... well, a lesser-known fact about me is I am SO introverted. I like social situations and stuff, but they're work for me. I'd much rather be with just a few close friends or family, or have some time alone on the weekends than have big parties or whatever.

Another one? I'm addicted to reading blogs. :)

3. What is your favorite childhood memory?

I have a lot of good memories. Some of my funniest memories are with my cousin Riley who is about 3 or 4 years older than me. He taught me to eat ants (you've got to bite them before they bite your tongue). He taught me all about how the sun is going to burn a hole in the ozone layer and fry us all (complete with pictures on the magna-doodle). He also taught me how to make ramps and jumps for my remote-control car I got one year for Christmas.

4. Best book I've read recently.

I recently did a re-read of all the Harry Potters. I am and will forever be of the Harry Potter generation. :)

5. Three favorite online shopping websites.

Amazon, Amazon, Amazon. Ha ha. Really though, Amazon. :)

6. Why did you start your blog?

When I was in high school we had a blog for our English class. After a while I let that one go, but then I remember in general conference a while back we were taught that we needed to have semi-public places to share what we believe and how we live. I think that's why I started it back up. I also like having a place to write, share my pictures I take, etc.

7. What is your favorite post that you have written?

I really like my posts where I post pictures, but I also really liked my recent post about doing your best.

8. What single quality do you appreciate most in people?


9.  What are the top 5 things on your bucket list?

A half marathon used to be on there, but YAY I got to check that off and don't have to put it on there again if I don't want. lol.

- Have babies (and raise my children to be good, productive members of society)
- Get a PhD and make an impact in mathematics education research
- Get better at photography
- See more of the world (read: travel the world to take pictures and eat food)
- Learn a new language (probably just learn Spanish beyond the high school Spanish I had)

10. What is your favorite way to work out? Least favorite?

Favorites: kick boxing, hiking, a little yoga and pilates and zumba and cycling, stuff like that. I like to mix it up.

Least favorite: Running. I hate it. Lol. I know it's so good for me and all that, but I hate it. That's why it was such an accomplishment for me to do that blasted race.


So, I don't really want to tag people, but for my friends and family (even the ones with private blogs), I'd love to read your answers to these questions! You can even post the award on your blog. ;) lol.
