Getting Personal… The Liebster Award


Hi all, Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Goooo Pats!

Now that we’ve got that out of the way ๐Ÿ™‚ , I’m going to be sharing something a little different with you today. Sarah, the amazing lady behind Parker the Prepster and a fellow Boston Blogger, nominated me this week for the Liebster Award. The award is all about recognizing and sharing blogs you love, but that have less than 3000 followers. I was honored that Sarah picked little old me as one of her faves! After being nominated, you spread the love by answering a few questions and then nominating your favorites. So today, things are going to get a bit more personal. I hope you’ll like learning a bit more about me and what goes on at my Party!

Q: What is your blogging process?

A:ย In the few months that I’ve been blogging, I’ve picked up a few things that help me be more organized. I set aside specific times on the weekends to try out recipes and take photos. I constantly carry a small notebook in my purse for jotting down ideas for future posts. I also created a calendar for my posts (in pencil of course!) so that I can plan when I am posting about what and be timely with certain posts, such as holiday specific posts. The best part of the process has been trying new things and writing about food, treats, places in Boston that I like and want to share!

Q: What was the best thing to happen to you this week?

A:ย On Thursday night, I went to a party at Neatly Nested Decor, an adorable home decor shop in South Boston. The party was to “Meet the Makers” behind many New England brands. It was a super fun time and I came home with lots of goodies. The best part though was my instagram photo from the event was selected as one of the winners of their contest! Excited to receive my prize ๐Ÿ™‚

Q: If you had one super power what would it be?

A:ย Sorry Sarah, I think I have to copy you on this one. Teleporting! My college girlfriends and I have been talking about inventing teleportation for years. With family and friends living all over, teleportation would be amazing!

Q: Are you a cat person, a dog person or neither?

A: Definitely dog! I’m allergic to cats, so that kind of doesn’t work. I’ve been begging MJD for a puppy for a while. Recently I’ve been obsessed with getting a chocolate brown Portuguese water dog- so cute!

Q: What was the last song you listened to?

A:ย  Style by Taylor Swift- I’m the biggest teeny bopper ever.

Q: Do you prefer morning, afternoon or night?

A:ย I’m definitely not a night person- I have to be in bed at 10 PM on “school nights” or else I get grumpy and I was never one to pull an all nighter in college. For certain things, I’m absolutelyย a morning person. I have to work out in the morning or else I have no shot at exercising.

Q: Are you extroverted, introverted or a mix of both?

A:ย For the most part, I would say I am extroverted. I love talking to people and meeting new people. However, I think like many of us I get a bit introverted if I’m in a situation where I’m not totally comfortable or if everyone knows each other and I’m the odd man out.

Q: What fashion trend can you completely not stand?

A: Recently, it’s probably overalls coming back into the scene. Maybe I wore them a bit too much when I was younger, but in my opinion, just not a good look for anyone.

Q: Name one thing you can’t live without and why.

A: MJD would probably say it’s my phone (insert tongue sticking out emoji face here)

Q: Finally, if you could achieve one thing from blogging, what would it be?

A: It would of course be great to have my blog be widely read and gain a lot of followers- I love what I write about and it means so much to be when others like it too! I’m also excited too about meeting new people through blogging, like Sarah and the other bloggers I’m nominating. What I’m most looking forward to, is having this blog be like a journal- a way for us to look back, especially on our years as newlyweds living in Boston!

Thank you again to Sarah for nominating me to participate! I’m happy to nominate these lovely ladies, who write some of my favorite blogs: Mascara + Medicine, Our Blog Around The Corner, Travel, Wine and Dine, Recipe Runner, Paperclips & Peonies, Chic & Shimmer, Fenway Fashionista, Confessions of a Chocoholic, South End Style, and Bloved Boston. I can’t wait to see what you ladies share! Here are the rules: answer the questions yourself in a blog post and nominate 11 of your favorite blogs in return!

In the spirit of sharing a bit more about me today and Super Bowl Sunday, thought I’d share a few pics of MJD and I cheering on the Pats! ย Let’s Go Patriots!

xoxo, Jenna
