An Award? For me??

I was given the Liebster Award by Jessi from Haircut and General Attitude. Thanks, girl! 

The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers. The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcoming.

When you accept the award you're supposed to:
-post 11 random facts about yourself
-answer the questions the previous blogger left
-choose 11 more blogs to award
-create 11 new questions for those bloggers
-let them know you've awarded them

Eleven Randoms: 
1. I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
2. I've been married for a year and eight months
3. I don't eat meat... 'cept fish. I CANNOT give up sushi, ok? 
4. I've got a lot of pet peeves. It's ridiculous. 
5. I really don't understand why people make such a big deal about California. I just wanna tell everyone to get over it, I guess. I have a serious love-hate relationship with that state. (Because I'd love to go visit and see my friends again and stuff.) 
6. I'd like to move to Albuquerque some day.
7. I hate being scared. So no scary movies for me. EVER. 
8. My favorite band is Eisley. I've been a fan for about 8 years. 

9. My favorite show is Glee. I'm afraid that season 4 is gonna go waaay downhill. I'll still watch if it sucks... 
10. I am very emotional. I cry when I watch people signing, when I watched Animal Hoarders for the first time, and even some commercials. I blame the pill. 
11. Chocolate. 

Questions from Jessi: 
1- What inspired you to start blogging? 
Other bloggers! I was impressed when bloggers would style thrifted clothing (like Bleubird, Tick Tock Vintage, A Beautiful Mess) and I thought that it was super practical (haha) for me to do the same. I was even more inspired when I discovered the mormon blogging network and saw all the modest outfits and all the possibilites. 

2- How would you describe your personal style? Colorful? I like colors... But still tame. And minimal, when it comes to accessories. 

3- Heels or Flats?
Heels, even though I really only wear them on Sundays. I'm 5'1" so it's nice to feel a bit taller. 

4- What is your favorite season?
Autumn. Cardigan weather.

5- Who takes the photographs for your blog?
My tripod or my husband. Mostly the tripod; Ryan thinks fashion blogging is weird. I don't blame him, it is kinda weird. He's gotten a lot better at agreeing to take my photos though :) 

6- If you could go anywhere in the world right now where would you go?
Probably Japan. Or London, so I can watch the Olympics! 

7- What is your all time favorite song?
On the Safest Ledge by Copeland

8- What is one of your favorite hobbies outside blogging?

9- What did you want to be growing up?
I wanted to be an animator or cartoonist. I got into the animation program my first semester of college... and I hated it. It didn't help that our animation program kinda sucks, too. Or maybe I just found it way too confusing. Besides, I don't have the patience. 

10- Would you rather shop high end stores or thrift stores?
I always shop at thrift stores or inexpensive stores, so a high end store would be a nice change? Like Kate Spade or Anthropologie. 

11- What is one of your favorite items of clothing and why?
This dress: it's red! and effortlessly modest.
