The Jamie's + 1

The Liebster Award

Wednesday, March 23, 2016

A huge thank you to Sarah @ Seeing All Sides for nominating me for this fun award.  Sarah's blog has become one of my most favorites to read, so check it out!

Sarah asked me 11 fun questions so lets jump right in!

1.Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging about 6 months after I had Nicklas.  I wanted a fun way to document our lives.  Its so fun to go back and read about things that I had completely forgot about. 

2. How has your blog changed through the years? 
My blog really hasn't changed that much.  I have started doing more link ups and sharing more personal facts about myself.  Mainly my blog still focuses on Nicklas!

3.What is your favorite post and why? Provide a link to it!
This is a hard one.  I think it would be the re introduction I just did recently.  I loved being open and sharing more about myself.  You can check it out here.

4. What have you learned through blogging?
I thought blogging would be easy... its not.  It is very time consuming and I really have to be in the mood to sit down and write.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE being able to look back and read about Nicklas when he was a baby and I am so glad that I am blogging.  Its just a lot more work than I thought it would be.

5.  If you could meet one blogger friend in real-life, who would it be? 
I would have to say Sarah!  We seem like we would get along so well, and we could sit and watch reality TV together.  I would also love to meet Jessica from Little Baby Garvin.

6. What is your favorite social media platform and why?
Well if you had asked me that about a month ago I would have said instagram (@jamie9283) but now it is Snapchat!  Y'all, I'm addicted!  Follow me @jbp902.  I promise to follow back!

7. What was the last think you ordered online?
Okay don't judge me... Nicks Easter basket.  Yes... horrible mommy.  But in my defense, our house is on the market and under contract and I just didn't want to fool with it.  So I bought a cheap, pre made basket that he is going to love!

8.  What is your favorite place in your house and why?
We have a sectional couch and I like to prop up some pillows and lay right in the corner with a fuzzy blanket!  Usually Nicklas is cuddled right next to me!

9. What are you most looking forward to this summer?
We will hopefully be building our new home this summer so we do not have a vacation planned.  So I am looking forward to the whole building process and being in our new home.

10. What is the last vacation you took?
This is so sad... it was in 2011 and we went to Hilton Head Island.

11.  If you chose another job different than what you have now, what would you choose?
I would be a teacher.  When I was younger I always dreamt of being a teacher.  Not sure what happened?!

11 facts about me:
1. My husband and I have the same first and last name.  Usually in my blog he is referred to as boy Jamie.
2. We have 2 chihuahuas, Sassy and Toby.
3.  I am incredibly afraid of the dark.
4.  I am originally from Mississippi.
5. My Starbucks order is always a grande White Chocolate Mocha.
6. Nicklas is named after my dad and my father in law.
7.  Nicklas was born on my grandfathers birthday.
8. I had a pet pig named annabelle when I was in elementary school.
9. I hate snow.  I seriously hate everything about it.
10. I hate fixing my hair.  I wear it in a pony tail almost every day.
11. My favorite hobby is napping.
