I’ve been nominated (Happy Face Emoji here)



I was nominated by sincerelyfaye at for the Libster Award.

I was sincerely excited to get the notice from sincerelyfaye. I want to give her a big thank you from the bottom of my heart and encourage you to hop on over to check out her awesome blog about being a wife, mom and everything comes with it.

So, what is the Liebster Award? This is the explanation that was passed along to me:

“The Liebster Award is a new-comer award given by bloggers to other bloggers, it creates a great platform for new blogs to be discovered and build communications. The best thing about this award is, it creates a lot of encouragement and support within our blogging community.


The rules of the Liebster Award are as follows:

  • Thank your nominator.
  • Share the award on your blog.
  • Answer 10 questions asked to you.
  • Ask 10 questions to 10 new nominees (who have less than 300 followers).
  • Notify them via social media.

Here are the questions sincerelyfaye has asked myself and her other nine nominees:

  1. Who is your favorite author? It may be cliche but JK Rowling. Not only for Harry Potter, but The Casual Vacancy is still on my mind a year later.
  2. How did you decide on your blog name? My first email address I came up with when I was 16 years old and had dial up was bigandpinkytoes. Everyone seems to like it and remember it, and I still have that same email account. So I used it for my blog too.
  3. If you listen to music while blogging, what genre is your muse? I don’t listen to music while I blog.
  4. Who is your biggest blog fan? My husband, mom, sisters, and friends have all been so supportive.
  5. Why did you decide to blog? I’ve been told that pursing any form of writing, publishers look to see if you have a blog first. I’m not super into social media, but I have learned that I love the blogging community.
