I was recently nominated by a fellow blogger for the Liebster Award and I couldn’t have been more excited. Now before everyone does a happy dance like I did, it’s not like an actual award that is presented at an awards ceremony with red carpets and acceptance speeches and heavy gold lady trophies. A girl can dream. No, the Liebster award is more of a recognition of sorts. An honor given to newbie bloggers by their blogging colleagues. A way to say hey, I see you and your badass blogging skills and I like you and I think more people need to read your shiz.
The nomination is open to new bloggers who have been blogging for two years or less and have less than 1,000 followers. The honor of a nomination gives new bloggers the opportunity to gain support and grow their network of readers. Starting a blog can be quite challenging, but also an incredible and wonderful way to foster empowerment and connection with other women on a similar journey.
I am completely honored to have received this nomination from Kortney at The Mason Dixon Home and I’m thankful to have met her through the wonderful blogging community. I highly suggest you take a look at her blog. She’s got lots of useful info on all things tiny human related from recipes (gotta sneak in those veggies!), product reviews, and gift guides!
My Answers to Kortney’s Questions:
How many children do you have?
Two complete opposite tiny humans. My 3 year old son is laid back and go with the flow (like his dad) and my one year old fierce and mighty daughter does what she wants all the live long day (um like her mama I suppose)
When did you start your blog?
I recently celebrated my one-year blogaversary! It was a little over a year ago that I made the decision to utilize naptime for writing all the crazy in my brain instead of to take care of my personal hygiene. Showers are for quitters y’all!
What is your favorite movie?
I have two all time favorites I watch over and over. Pride and Prejudice (the Kiera Knightly version) and Moulin Rouge. There was a time in my life where I drove around blasting some Nicole Kidman on repeat while scream singing at the top of my lungs, DIAMONDS! Are a girls. best. friendddddd! Muah!
If you had to choose, would you rather live out of a private jet or a yacht?
Um planes crash and yachts sink. Can I choose a tree house where no natural disasters or spiders exist?
How did you come up with your blog name?
Um mom + zombie cause negative sleep y’all. Instead of eating brains, I chug all the coffee.
Which social media networks are you on?
Do you have any pets?
A dog named Gumbo. He used to sleep in our bed and I had this ridiculous baby voice I used when talking to him (think ohhh gummy wum drops. Yea, effing insane). Now he sleeps nowhere close to our bed and the highlight of his day is when my son throws him waffle scraps.
What is your favorite Holiday?
MARDI GRAS! You can take the girl out of the Louisiana, but you can’t take Louisiana out of the girl.
Do you prefer a night out or a night in?
I can appreciate both. Sweat pants and wine in bed are a dream come true, but so are high heels and mascara and people watching.
What is your favorite memory from the past?
Gosh lately I’ve been all nostalgic about college and grad school. I wish I could go back in time and tell my young non-saggy belly button self to enjoy it cause adulting is a bitch man.
Besides your family (and coffee) what is the one thing you could not live without?
AQUAPHOR. My lips hurt real bad y’all.
