Liebster Love + New LinkUp Announcement

Before we start off this Marvelous Mondayย (thanks Katie!) I have a pretty exciting announcement!! I think by now everyone in blogland has read and weighed in on how uncool I am. From this great debate, however, a wonderful thing happened. I realized there are hundreds of ppl outside this “cool” group so why not create our own? Suzan from Welcome to The Nuthouse and I have done just that.

Introducing The Secret Blogger Club Link-up!! It’ll start up next Monday (May 5th) so start getting your membership dues and applications in order….kidding, it’s free duh and anyone can join (yes even you big bloggers out there). I’ll have more information later this week, so make sure to check back….Oh and pretty, pretty, please spread the word for me. I’d hate to realize I’m even more uncool than I thought and have no one join us. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Now for some Liebster Love. I’ve been so blessed to be surrounded with such wonderful and lovely readers ever since I started my blog journey. I’ve never had a mean or rude comment, y’all are wonderful! I can add that to reasons I know I haven’t hit big-time blogger status yet I guess lol. But seriously, if staying in the middle of the pack means I only get lovely, nice readers then I’m ok with it ๐Ÿ™‚

Lauren at Running the States so generously nominated me for a Liebster award! Thank you Lauren ๐Ÿ˜€ Everyone go give her some love, she’s such a sweetheart. Also she runs and owns an Ariel tank-top so clearly we were meant to be friends. I’m sucha rule breaker lately that I’ll apologize in advance for not following proper Liebster protocol but y’all know I rarely do what I’m told. Below are Lauren’s questions for me. You can never know too much after all ๐Ÿ˜‰


1. If you could run for any charity, which would you choose and why?

This a good question and I’m gonna be lame and not give a real answer. Any charity would be worth running for so I’d run for any that would have me!

2. What’s your biggest “one and done” activity that you would do?

I’m not super adventurous in the aspect that if I’m willing to do something once, I’m pretty likely to do it again. Except maybe graduate school. Two years of that is enough haha.

3. If you could live in any city, which would it be and why?

Boston, duh…do I really need to expound on this anymore than that? Y’all know I love me some Boston and I’m pretty sure I’ve said more than once that it’s the greatest city on Earth!

boston love

4. What’s the furthest you’ve traveled from home?

I lived in Utah for 3 years for college then moved to Boston after graduation for work. The Famfam is in TN so both are pretty far. Traveling wise I’ve been out to Cali but never overseas anywhere.

5. If money was no object, what is the one major purchase you would make?

I’d buy a giant vacation home for my entire family to congregate at. Of course house staff would go along with it so we wouldn’t haveta cook or clean. You did say money was no object right?

6. What is the proudest you’ve ever felt?

Well I think pretty highly of myself so I’m usually proud of me, but getting into grad school at the University of Kentucky was a pretty proud moment. Or getting a full-time job right out of undergrad. Or moving out on my own and surviving away from home in the big city. Or growing my hair out past my boobs….it really doesn’t take that much ๐Ÿ™‚

7. What is your favorite movie of all time, and why?

She’s the Man……no explanation needed, am I right? Am I right? If you need that last sentence explained than we can’t be friends. Just kidding, I need more friends so if you didn’t get it, I’ll gladly explain.

8. If you could meet any musical artist, who would it be and why?

Bethany Joy Lenz. This goes back to my obsession over One Tree Hill (may it RIP). I’ve already made 3 trips to Wilmington in hopes of meeting her, though the last one was post-filming so it was all about nostalgia. If you’ve never been to Wilmington, NC you’re seriously missing out my friend.

9. What’s your favorite restaurant?

I like food and food likes me. Next question….

10. What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Shoot, I’m literally writing a whole list of them for a future post so stand by. My biggest one though, is people being fake. Just be you dudes and don’t worry about pleasing others. Also please stop chewing with your mouth open, ain’t nobody wanna see all that.

I hope y’all feel as if we are even better friends now. I’m turning the tables on y’all though. I wanna know if anyone can relate to my answers or extremely disagree? (just not on She’s the Man, that’s not negotiable)

Also who’s excited to join my not very exclusive club?

  1. Hey! I found you via the MIMM linkup ๐Ÿ™‚

    Congrats on the Liebster! What a fun idea for a linkup too. The sunglasses and mustache in that pic are too much fun. My one major purchase (if money wasn’t an object) would probably be travel related like a round-the-world adventure.

  2. Thanks for the invite! I went back and read your post on big life bloggers. OMG. Yep, definitely don’t have high quality images on my blog. As much as I’d love it, there’s no way I’m spending that much on a camera. I get by with my phone too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Looking forward to linking up on cinco de mayo!

    • Haha a girl can dream but until my bills pay for themselves I’ll stick to my iphone images lol. Also I just realized it’s cinco de mayo monday…thanks for the heads up! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. I am excited to learn more about the Secret Blogger Club ๐Ÿ™‚ My pet peeve?? {Only one}? Lateness, people being late to arrive for something, drive me nuts LOL

  4. I have many pet peeves, fake people being one of them. When I was 21 I realized I didn’t need those people and dropped them. My biggest workout pet peeve is the big ass grunters who throw down their weights, creating an earthquake epicenter in the gym.

    • Yes, yes, yes…I keep trying to teach my little sis this lesson, but I guess everyone needs to learn it their own way…And gym grunters? haha I’ve never even noticed. I kinda wanna go to your gym now to experience this lol

  5. Ahh I live in Wilmington!! Bethany came into my work once and I didn’t realize it was her until she looked up at me and I literally went speechless. Chad Michael Murray and the kid who played Jamie have also made appearances. aaand I’ve seen the guys who play Clay and Dan (don’t know their real names) while running. Do you hate me yet? Sadly they have all moved away now ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • Hate you?!?!?! No I wanna be best friends with you b/c you’ve basked in the glory of their presence!! I can be awesome by association right? lol Sigh…I still love Wilmington with or without OTH, such a beautiful place ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I’m excited for this link up. I freaking love She’s The Man! I thought I was alone! and seriously, if someone eats with their mouth open i will smack them. no shame. when i was younger i accidentally broke my brothers arm because he was doing it on purpose to annoy me and i got so mad and pushed him down the stairs. oops.

    • Heck no! My best friend and I used to have contests in college to see who could slip the best STM quote into daily conversation with strangers….Needless to say I won, but now I challenge you!! lol…Also remind me not to get on your bad side..matter of fact, I’ll let you win ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I’d love to join if I still can. I don’t really have a blog though. I have one set up for when I was using it for a couple of book reviews, but I haven’t touched it in a year or so. I know, I’m a loser!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Does that disqualify me; I would completely understand if it did.

    One of my biggest pet peeves is “followers” people who don’t question anything because it might rock the boat. Seriously?!

  9. Dang, thank you so much for posting this! It is going to be so helpful when I am thinking about going to Carmike Wilmington in Fort Wayne! I am from Buffalo, NY so I am not familiar with Wilmington. Next time I see my family will be much better! So Incredible!

So what'd ya think?....
