I Was Nominated for a Liebster Award!

The Liebster Award

I am so excited that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by Kristie from Life as a Mama Bear! Thank you so much, Kristie! Kristie is also a first time mom, with a little babe just a few months older than Livia. She blogs about everything from her adventures of a new mom, her family life, food, crafts, and more. She has such a positive and supportive voice in her posts, she is definitely a mom blogger you need to check out!

The Liebster Award is an award that is given by one blogger to another. To be nominated, your blog must be less than 2 years old and have less than 1,000 followers. This award is a great way for bloggers to recognize other bloggers that inspire them. It is also a great way for bloggers to connect and build a supportive blogging community. Since I started my blogging journey, I have been blown away by the support bloggers give each other. The support from my ‘tribe’ as we call ourselves is pretty amazing, and I love to continually add more bloggers to it!

My Questions From Kristie

  1. What makes you happy? Being with my family. We don’t get a whole lot of time together, so even if it’s just doing simple things, I love it when we can all be together.
  2. What is your favorite day of the year? Definitely August 27th,  the day my daughter was born!
  3. How did you come up with the name for your blog? Well I knew I wanted something with ‘simple’ since I consider myself to be a fairly simple, laid back person. I had trouble thinking of something that would fit well with it, and be catchy enough to sound good. Then one day Livia was wearing a shirt that said ‘Mommy’s Sweetheart’ and The Simple Sweetheart just clicked!
  4. What is your favorite book? This is such a hard one! I love so many different types of books, for so many different reasons. I can’t even choose just one. I’m allowed to choose a series, right?? I’d have to say the Harry Potter series because I really began to fall in love with reading when reading these books as a kid. I have such great memories of my family reading these books together. I read The Sorcerers Stone each year to my students, and I love to see them get into books that I love. I can’t wait to share these books with my Livia!
  5. What is the last movie you watched? My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. I was a HUGE fan of the first one, and this sequel did not disappoint!
  6. What are you looking forward to? The last day of school. I can’t wait to spend the whole summer with my baby girl!
  7. If you were an animal, what animal would you be? A dog. No question. A Golden Retriever, to be exact, because they are just the best! Sometimes I look at our dogs sleeping and playing all day, and think, “Man, I wish I was you.” That’s totally normal right?
  8. If you won a million dollars, what would you buy first? I would definitely quit my job to stay home with my babe! And maybe buy a bigger car. Those are total mom answers!
  9. What are your pizza toppings of choice? Pepperoni, pineapple, and green pepper. Yes, all three together on one pizza. It was a pregnancy craving that has stuck around!
  10. What is your favorite blog post that you have written so far and why? I would have to say To The New Mom Going Back to Work. It’s a very recent one, but I feel like it’s one of the few where I really dig into some tough feelings. I love the honesty of it.
  11. Why did you start your blog? I have always enjoyed writing, but have never done much writing for myself, it has always been for school or work. So I wanted a place where I could spend time pursuing something that I love. I also wanted a place where I could not only keep track of the big milestones of having a new baby, but also the every day thoughts, feelings, and memories of being a new mom.
