Liebster Award

I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award by Grace at Graciela. Thanks, Grace! The Liebster Award is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers as a way of helping their blog get recognized and discovered.

Here are the rules:
1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you (Grace at Graciela).
2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger gave you.
3. Nominate other bloggers (however many or few you would like).
4. Create 11 new questions for them to answer.
5. Notify the new nominees of their award.

Here are my answers to Grace's questions. I had a lot of fun answering them, and I hope my answers help you all to get to know me a little better! (Thank you, Grace!!!)

1. Favorite ice cream flavor? I love, love, LOVE ice cream, so it's very hard for me to pick just one favorite flavor. But I might have to say triple brownie. Or any flavor that is as chocolatey as possible.

2. Who is your favorite style icon? I'm not really someone who follows style icons, but I definitely have to say I love Lauren Conrad's style!

3. Three qualities you look for in your future spouse? Good one! :) Three qualities that I look for are: 1) Faith: I want a husband who is devout and strong in his faith and will be a spiritual leader for me as well as our future family. 2) Gentlemanly-ness: it's important to me that my husband is a respectful, thoughtful, and selfless kinda guy, to me as well as to others. 3) A good sense of humor: I come from a family with a great sense of humor and enthusiasm for all things ridiculous + hilarious. So I would love a husband who can appreciate and share in some good, weird humor!

4. Who is your favorite YouTuber? Well, I mostly watch funny videos on YouTube (does this surprise you after what I just said about humor?). Thus some of my favorite YouTubers (these are family favorites as well) include Rhett and Link, Miranda Sings, Gayle Waters-Waters, Kid History / Kid Snippets, and my own dear cousin Kate Spellman. My sister and I also happen to have our own YouTube channel. If you're brave enough to check it out, please enjoy and don't be completely weirded out ;)

5. If you could only shop in 1 store for the rest of your life what would it be? Target. It's got great clothes, home furnishings + accessories, food, and movies + technology. Basically, it's a wonderful place.

6. Would you rather live near the mountains or the ocean? I'd probably have to say the mountains. I think mountains are so beautiful, and I don't think I would ever tire of seeing them every day.

7. Biggest online pet-peeve? Ads. I despise seeing ads on websites. Not only are they sometimes inappropriate, they are always extremely annoying. That is why AdBlock is my friend. If you hate ads and you don't have AdBlock, install it! With AdBlock, all ads are *poof* gone.

8. What Disney movie would you like to be in? If I had to pick just one, I'd have to say "Beauty and the Beast." Mainly because the Beast is one of my favorite Disney princes, and also because I love Belle. Speaking of which, is anyone else as excited for the upcoming "Beauty and the Beast" movie as I am?!? Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as Beast (*shriek*), Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts... I don't think the cast could be any more perfect!

9. What is your favorite go-to summer accessory? Probably a cute pair of sunglasses. Not only are they practical + helpful, they also are super cute looking, add a little extra color to your look, and make you feel kinda cool ;)

10. Favorite music album? Right now, "Fire Within" by Birdy and "Head or Heart" by Christina Perri. I bascially love every single song on both of those albums. And those two singers are two of my favorites ever. (And I got to see them both in concert about a year ago! It was AMAZING.)

11. If you could drop everything and travel to 3 specific places, where would you go? Oh my gosh. This is so hard. How about everywhere in Europe, everywhere in Europe, and everywhere in Europe?? If I have to narrow it down to 3 specific places though, I'd have to say: 1) Rome. This place has been on the top of my travel bucket list for as long as I can remember. I especially want to go to the Vatican and see the Pope! 2) Florence. Since I've been taking Medieval Literature this semester and studying Dante rather in depth, I really want to go to Florence! It's a beautiful city full of history. 3) England. I went there about 3 years ago and I quite literally fell in love. England is a lovely country full of so much history and breathtaking beauty. I get to go there again in May, and I cannot adequately express my excitement! (Check out my travel page to read more about my past + (hopefully) future travel adventures!)

Now, I nominate:
Mariah at Within the Grey
Abbey at Abbey Noelle
Clare at Sweet Wakings
Gabrielle at A Dabbler's Journal
Grace at My Spare Oom 

Here are my 11 questions:
1. Favorite season?
2. Coffee or tea?
3. Three qualities you look for in a spouse?
4. Favorite Christmas movie?
5. If you could only eat at one restaurant ever again, what would it be?
6. Would you rather go skydiving or mountain climbing?
7. Favorite / ideal study spot?
8. Sunny days or rainy days?
9. If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?
10. If you could drop everything and travel to 3 specific places, where would you go?
11. What inspired you to start blogging?

If these blogs feel so obliged to accept the award and participate, just follow the rules listed above and have at it! I really like this Liebster Award as a way for all of us bloggers + our readers to get to know each other better! 

Have fun! :)

God bless,


  1. Thank you Stephanie, I'm tickled pink that you nominated me! I was wondering, did you know that you only posted ten questions?

  2. Oh my goodness, you're right...I totally didn't even realize that! Oops!!! Haha! I went ahead and added an 11th question :)

  3. Hi, Stephanie! Thanks so much for the tag - and Beauty & the Beast is my favorite Disney film!! I'm over the moon about the Emma Watson version being made. Such a perfect cast!!
