Amazing Blogger Award

As mentioned in my last post, I was nominated for the Amazing Blogger Award by Karen at Just Me and My Running Shoes. I have been out of town all weekend and am going to try my hardest to catch up on my blogger, but it has been so hard! Between school starting and being gone, it has been tough to catch up.

I was also nominated for another award, but I will try to blog about that later.

Here goes:


"Favorite Character"
and
I love Disney, so this was an easy one. I have so many different favorites that it was hard to choose what I really liked. 

"Favorite Thing to Photograph"

I love photographing my baby girl Milly and the lake.
The lake makes me feel so calm and in such a mood to pray be the person that God created me to be. 

"Favorite Thing to Cook"
I love cooking new recipes, such as this shrimp etouffee, which I have perfected now. I am always willing to try to new recipe, especially if it looks really good! 

However, the one thing that I have cooked that people love is called Layer Dessert. It is a layer of pecans, chocolate pudding, creamcheese, chocolate pudding and whipped cream. I had to make it around 3 or 4 times within in a couple of weeks at Christmas time. 

"Favorite Way to Exercise"

Duh, running of course!! I love running, but I also love to swim and bike. 

"Favorite Movie"

This is a hard one. I am not sure how to choose, but if I had to right now I would have to say Soul Surfer. I read the book right after it happened and I have watched the movie so many times already. 

I love the christian side that it puts into the movie. Such a bold and awesome move!! She is such a powerful girl full of so much faith and ambition! 

"Favorite Article of Clothing/Store"


I have two places that I love. New York and Company and Kohl's. I just got a whole weeks worth of clothes at Kohl's last week! It has such great sales and clothes! 

"Favorite Flower"


I love yellow roses! I used yellow roses in my wedding and they were beautiful! 

"Favorite Breakfast"
I love greek yogurt, fruit, and turkey bacon/sausage! I usually switch between these things to eat for breakfast. 

"Favorite Book"


Currently I am waiting for Karen Kingsbury's new book in the Baily Flannigan series to come out, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE reading books on my kindle. Not only has it saved me money, but it has saved me a ton of space. 

"Favorite Place to Be"


I love being in Disney (especially at Christmas). It is the happiest place on earth and is so much fun to be spend time there with my husband. Although, there are so many places I want to visit eventually. I also love Tennessee, but I do not have any pictures from it currently. 

"Favorite Sporting Event"


I love Volleyball....playing it, watching it, and whatever else is included in that. I miss playing the game so much now. 

Now I need to choose a few people to post this on their blog.....let's see....


Monika at Monika's Miles

Alyssa at Against the Tide

I LOVE NY&CO too. I love getting coupons and using them during sales. I have their CC too, so I usually get my clothes there for a steal!

OOH that's my name!! What now?

Congrats on the award! I am a huge fan of surfing and very well may take a look into that Soul Surfer mention... it's only too bad Houston is no where near a decent surf spot.

Thank you so much for nominating me! Sorry I've been a bad blogger and didn't notice until now. I've been sick and moving and packing for the past 2 weeks non-stop, but I'm finally done I think! I promise to write the post soon!
