Liebster = Beloved

Did you know that? I didn't!
I've lost count of how many of these I've done but my excitement of a Liebster Award nomination has not diminished. Thank you very much to Lauren for nominating me this time, providing me with lovely blog material today!
1. If you could have dinner with any famous human, who would it be? (explain, you know you want to anyway) President Obama. I'm a supporter of his - for the most part - and would just love a firsthand account of what it's like to be him, and to be the POTUS.
2. Be realistic, where do you see yourself in a few years? (a few could be 2, 10, 20, whatever)
I haven't really a clue. But I hope to still be happy, healthy and living a life full of love with T. And thriving in a career I enjoy would be nice, too.
3. What is the one thing that can instantly make you happy, like turn your whole day around?
Love. Witnessing it, feeling it, giving it. 
4. What is the news headline you’re following most closely lately?
 Hmm probably the possible government shutdown
5. If the concept of a bank account/bills didn’t exist, what would you buy yourself?
A penthouse in Manhattan and/or a mansion in Miami. Maybe a private jet that I can travel the world in.  
6. Chocolate, vanilla, or twist?
7. How do you relax? Share your favorite tip…
Grab a cup of coffee or hot chocolate (my go-to Christmastime drink) and curl up with a good read or watch a movie. Probably with a blanket.
8. Tell me three things you love about being you. (no skimping, THREE!)
 One: My Latina heritage
Two: My big heart
Three: a) My loving family - does that count? 'Cause they're the bomb diggity and I'm lucky to call them mine. If it doesn't though, then b) My curves - usually lol
9. White or Red wine?  Or is liquor quicker?
None of the above. I am proud to say I have chosen not to drink anymore and I feel much healthier because of it! 
10. What makes you feel most accomplished, or what do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment so far?
This is a bit hard. I think my biggest accomplishment has been graduating from Penn State with honors, and from a top NYC law school and being employed by one of my top choices upon graduation. What's made me feel most accomplished is having been asked to speak at a college orientation event my brother attended. Perhaps more than that, though, is simply hearing from others that my family, especially little brother (it's more expected from parents and significant other I think lol), speaks about me a lot to them. 
11. What inspired you to start blogging?
Honestly, the loneliness I was feeling while Timmy was deployed last year. But I didn't actively blog until this January when I decided to blog more regularly. 

I nominate all of my readers for this award because you're all the best! Have a belove-ly weekend!  


  1. It's amazing how great blogging can be. :)

  2. I blogged the most when Will was deployed too! You have so much to be proud of, and you are a great example for Military girlfriends/fiances/wives out there. You go girl!
