WILW and Awards!

School is back in session and I feel like I've neglected my poor blog and readers! Sorry guys! 
I'm back! :)

It's time to play along with What I'm Loving Wednesday by Jamie.

I'm loving the versatile blogger award I received from Beth Ann. Thank you so much!!

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
2. Answer 10 questions
3. Pass it along to 7 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy
4. Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award

The 10 Questions (and my answers, of course!)

1. Why did you create this blog?
I started this blog to keep family and friends updated on our newlywed life and home renovation. It is still that today, but has become kind of a "prayer journal" for me as well. Although there are things that are kept for my personal, intimate relationship with God, you will see a lot of my hallelujahs, trials and triumphs as I walk this Christian life I have happily chosen. As I have grown from 5 followers to 56, I've wondered if I should share the things I've been sharing, and the Lord has led me to be more open about my relationship with Him. Sure, there will be those who are offended, but if my personal testimony could help even just
1 person, then I know this blog has served it's true purpose.

 2. What kinds of blogs do you follow?
I follow A LOT of blogs! Mostly newlywed, Christian women. I'm also interested in blogs about fashion (cause I need all the help I can get) and photography. I enjoy reading new recipes as well!

3. Favorite make-up brand?
I seriously don't have one. Maybe I need one..

4. Favorite clothing brand?
Ann Taylor loft happens to be my favorite.. but I love any place where I can get a great deal!

5. Indispensable makeup product?
concealer and mascara!

6. Favorite color?
turquoise! :)

7. Favorite perfume?
I wear different scents from Victoria's Secret... I NEED a new perfume though. My friend wore some the other day that I absolutely loved. I forgot the name of it though!

What was it, Scarlett?
8. Favorite film?
I love comedies and can't chose just one. 

Some that I can watch over and over again and not get tired of are Dumb and Dumber and Christmas Vacation. 
9. What country would you like to visit and why?
I want to visit the French Polynesian islands! Tahiti, to be exact. Why?... because that place is AWESOME!
10. Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?
I would rather forget the blush!

And now to pass along this award, here are just a few of my new favorite blogs (in no particular order& I tried not to use blogs I've given awards to before):
1.Kristen at 
Just Thinking

2. Mallori at Aiukli- Because Life is Beautiful
3. Jenny at DIY Newlyweds
4. Miss J from The Smelly Life
5. Mara at Home Shabby Home
6. Alison at Life and times of Alison and Justin
7. The Fresh Cut

  1. Congrats on your blogger award! Hope your husband gets to feeling better!!

  2. Thanks for playing along!

    Congrats on your award :) I love to read all kinds of blogs too!

    Hope your hubby feels better soon!

  3. OH YAY! Thank you so much for giving me my first award EVER! I'm excited! I will give my answers later tonight! I truly appreciate it!

  4. Cute boots girl! I am looking for some right now... but they are all over 50! You have inspired me to continue the search for a pair under 20... or 10 in your case!

  5. oooh sick i know that all too well...good luck girly! sending love and healing prayers your way!

  6. Congrats on the award! And I see you've already gotten the Stylish Blogger Award, but I thought I'd let you know I just gave it to you on my blog too :) swing by and check it out if you get a chance!

  7. Thank you SO much girl. Where did you get those boots for $6! Good work! :)

  8. :)

    You and my husband share your top 2 favorite movies. ;)

    Where in the world did you find a great pair of boots for $6?!

    And bring on your thoughts and feelings if you feel led to do so...I know that God would use it to enhance his kingdom. :) And remember, Jesus was ridiculed and hated for what he said and taught. I think if we are truly living the Christian life, there are going to be people who disagree with us and don't like what we have to say. There is a wonderful verse in the bible about this very thing but my brain is failing me and I am having no luck looking it up! ;)

  9. Awww thank you so much for the blogger award! I feel so special! I love your blog--it's so well-put-together and interesting. And yeah--those $6 boots are amazingly cute! I hope your hubby feels better soon!

  10. Hi Amanda! Just found your blog and I love it! Your story of meeting your husband is sweet and he would have had me at the relationship with Jesus Christ line too. Thanks for sharing your stories...I will be returning. :)

    On a less serious note, those $6 boots are fabulous! Where did you find them?

  11. Hi Amanda! thank you for having passed me this lovely award and also congratulations for your lovely blog! But the fact that surprise me most is those fantastic boots for just $6!!!! =)

  12. YAY! Glad you are back! I have missed you!!

    Love those $6 boots...what a steal! I'd love a photoshoot from you! Too bad we don't live near each other!! I hope your hubby starts to feel better!!


I would love to hear from you!
