a sweet 'lil award.

as you all probably know (due to my lack of posting), i've been offline for a couple of days. i was moving/getting over a cold/focusing on work, and i missed a few postings :( 

then, i get online today and find the sweetest award from my dear fellow blogger Kayla at My Kind of Yellow. if you're looking for an absolutely darling blog full of sweet anecdotes and beautiful pictures? you don't have to look any longer. and she's just the kindest lady! all her comments are so thoughtful and cute, and it's so obvious so that loves the Lord. what more could you want in a blog? 

just a little background on the 'liebster' award. it's awarded to bloggers who have under 200 followers that make their home in the blogosphere. and here, my friends, are the rules: 

1. Post ELEVEN random facts about yourself
2. Answers the ELEVEN questions from your nominator
3. Pass the award onto ELEVEN other blogs and ask them ELEVEN different questions
4. Don't nominate that sweet 'lil blogger that nominated YOU


Okay. Well. Eleven random facts? Here we go... 


1. i LOVE chocolate chip ice cream. it's my absolute favorite. 
2. once, i was grounded from milk. yep, good ol' 2% because i was...drinking too much of it. 
3. my favorite book is a tie between, "wuthering heights" and "the bell jar."
4. country music = best friend.
5. i love to play make believe. still. my best friend just laughs at me. 
6. i like to listen to other people in coffee shops/restaurants. if they say anything slightly interesting, i usually write it down and stick it somewhere in a story ;)
7. i'm a morning person. i wake up veryvery happy. 
8. i dream about being listed in the "new york times" and published in, "the new yorker"
9. i've studied old hollywood extensively, and it makes me love living in LA
10. i watch "grey's anatomy" religiously and cried when "desperate housewives" ended. (i know, i know. but it's true)
11. my mama and i talk pretty much every day. she's a neat lady. 

now. as if you haven't had ENOUGH of me, here are some questions from asked by the lovely Kayla:

1. If you could only have one fruit the rest of your life, what would it be? Strawberries. Always and forever. 
2. Sweet or salty? Sweet. Cupcakes fix everything.
3. Are you married? If yes, how did you meet your man? Um, nope. Not yet. But you can check out this post and see why ;)
4. Describe yourself in 4 words. Let’s have an adventure.
5. Who do you strive to be like? Probably Joyce Carol Oates. And my mom. If we stuck those two people together, I would want the outcome to = me.
6. What is your passion in life? Writing stories.
7. What is one song you could hear at any point in your life and never get sick of? “Standing Outside the Fire” by Garth Brooks. It reminds me of being a little girl and I love the message. You have to take chances to make your life worth living, no matter what other people think J
8. Hot date night out, or comfy movie night in? It depends on whether or not I’ve exercised in the past week, and if I have new pair of heels…
9. What is one thing you never leave the house without? My new super cool iPhone 5. And my idea book!
10. Are you on twitter? If yes, what name can I follow you under? Well yes I am. My twitter name is @meg1521, {here's the link!} and i'm a bit of a newbie. it confuses me. 
11. Did you do any extracurricular activities in high school? I was in choir and CSF. I definitely would classify my high school self as a "nerd" so I wasa bit buried in the books and my job at the local Starbucks.

Yay!! Thanks so much, Kayla! I am so honored, and I can't wait to put this little button in my sidebar :)

My nominees? Well, I only picked four because I'm still a baby blogger. I chose these sweet ladies because they have become darling fixtures on my blog, and I love all the inspiration that I get from theirs. So, in no particular order: 
1. Darling Rachael at the Sanderson Smith Story...she was one of my first followers, and I love popping over her her place for stunning family photographs and stories that make me smile.
2. Natalie, who is a darling and inspirational fashion blogger from, The Best Things in Life are Free, the Second Best are Very Expensive
3. Rachael from RachECakes, who is a lovely southern belle transplant making fashion waves in Boston.
4. Lizz, from Looking to Find, who I can always count on for beautiful photos and inspirational posts.
