Liebster Award

My first award, yay!

I am beyond excited to have been nominated for the Liebster Award by Lisa over at Me and My Mom Friends!

So why am I so excited and what exactly is a Liebster Award?

I, like a lot of people, didn’t know what a Liebster Award was and I felt extra dumb when I learned what it was.

The Liebster Award is an award that is given to bloggers by other bloggers and it is purely an electronic recognition of your hard work.

Nowadays, the blogging world is so convoluted that it often feels like we’re competing with each other, even though we each have something unique to offer.

Liebster is a German word meaning dearest or beloved, which is why this award is dearly received by bloggers. It’s a way of supporting and acknowledging each other’s accomplishments while making it fun in the process!

The Rules

So, here are the rules you have to follow in order to participate and keep spreading the love!

My Given Questions

Without further ado, here are the 11 questions that were given to me and my most honest answers.

1. Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging months after having my first baby. I ran a couple blogs pre-baby. One was focused on girl advice and the other on movie reviews. After I had my son, I decided I wanted to get back to blogging because I love writing and I had all these new experiences as a mother that I wanted to share and that’s how I started Little Conquest, which focuses on Parenting and Lifestyle.

2. Favorite place you’ve visited?

The greatest place I’ve visited is Jamaica. Husband and I went to Ocho Rios for our honeymoon and we just loved it! The views are amazing and even though it is an impoverished country, the people are always joyous, with a smile on their face some of the most nicest people that are always ready to help. We loved it so much we visited the following year for our first anniversary!

3. What is your guilty pleasure?

My guilty pleasure is walking the clearance aisles at Target! lol

4. What do you do to relax?

A hot shower usually does the trick. If I feel tense, I find that a hot shower relaxes both body and mind!

5. How long have you been blogging?

Actually consistently blogging, just a few months.

6. What is your hidden talent?

I’m good with numbers. I think I was an accountant in my previous life! Haha.

7. What is your favorite color?

Black. And maybe hints of rose.

8. Warm weather or cold weather?

Neither. Haha, my husband makes fun of me all the time because in the summer I complain about the heat and I can’t stand the cold at all. I’m good at 70 degrees F.

9. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Europe. But only because I like what I see in the movies lol. Beachside would be nice if it weren’t for hurricanes. As long as I have hubby and babies, I’m ok wherever!

10. How do you define success?

Success lies in happiness. If you are happy, you are by association, successful!

11. What motivates you?

My husband is my #1 cheerleader and supporter! We do everything that we do for our kids because we had it a bit on the rough side growing up, so we’re always aiming at being able to give them opportunities we didn’t have.

Random Facts

  9. I’m very sarcastic. Although, I’ve restrained myself from doing it too often. Becoming a mom makes you soft!

  11. No matter what color I try on my hair (once in a blue moon), I always end up going back to black!

    Congratulations! So very exciting. I actually had no idea what a Liebster was until reading this. Love your blog. I also really liked your humble bragging about dishwasher tetris. I make similar jokes about our Freezer. Cheers
