I was so excited to be included for the Liebster Award from Cat of The Simmonds and the Suburbs!  Cat is one of my favorite new bloggers to follow.  She is precious, sweet has an amazing taste in music and is a Texan...wish she lived in Houston though.  I feel like we would get together tons and really hit it off.  You must go check out her blog

The Rules!
Each person must post 11 facts about themselves
..and answer the 11 questions that are tagged for them
...and list the 11 bloggers you nominate
...and make up your own 11 questions to ask your nominees

Facts about me:
1.  I'm a Christian
2.  I'm a Taurus

Questions for me:

6. What are your pet peeves?  When people ask why we don't have children yet and tell us we need to hurry up. 
7. Have you ever been to the symphony?  Yes, the Houston Symphony several times...Jason and I really enjoy it, but often forget about it!

10. What is your holiday schedule like with your husband/BF?  Just watch the movie Four Christmases with Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn.
11. How/why did you start blogging?  Sad to admit, but I started blogging when I started my masters.  I had to sit in class for 4 hours at night after work...4 hours late at night is intense!  I always had my computer in front of me and my BFF/classmate was a blogger.  I got the itch to start one like her plus it gave me something to do in class when I started falling asleep...or wanted to put off my homework!  My bad habit stuck and now I only do it at appropriate times.  And yes, I completed the program!

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Thank you friend! I sometimes wish a I had an all in one blog, and I might do it later, but since I just use this for Jacks baby book (I print it) Im lame sauce around these things. I know borning!!! xoxo

  2. I am the same way about pedicures...why do I ever think color is a good idea?!?

    Thanks for nominating me! I'm going to try to get this done before the baby arrives :)

  3. @KJJ Houston: No worries! Duh, Chels...I didn't even realize your blog was just focused on that, but what a fabulous idea to turn it into a printed baby book!

    @Vanessa: We missed you last night! Everything went great. Once you have baby and get settled into your new role, let's go get a french pedicure together!

  4. Hey Chelsea! Thanks for the award. I've actually been given this before so I would feel weird doing it again. Also, since I've been so SLOW in the posting department. Thanks again!
