The Liebster Award [I've Been Nominated!]

About the Liebster Award
The Liebster award is an honor given by bloggers to new blogs that have been around for less than two years and have less than 1,000 followers. This award gives the opportunity for new bloggers to be introduced to each other and gain support that they may have never had the chance to find otherwise. Starting a blog can be quite challenging but I have already learned that gaining the support from other people that are on the same journey makes the process a little easier and much more enjoyable.

I am incredibly blessed and honored to have received this nomination from Melissa at Let's Find Joy. I am so thankful to have met her through something we both have a passion for. I highly suggest you take a look at her blog. It is one that will be sure to lift your spirits.

 Questions from Melissa: Answered

Q: What gives you joy?
 A: I think anyone could guess this one, my family. Family has always been important to me. I grew up with 5 brothers and sisters, yes all from the same mom and dad, so there were no breaks. It was 8 of us in a 2 bedroom, 1 bath house and I wouldn't have changed it for anything, just don't try telling my 15 year old self that. There is nothing I love more than family and I think that shows in everything I do. Family has always been important but especially now that I have a child of my own. Everyone says that becoming a parent changing everything but I never truly understood until the day it happened.

Q: What 3 words best describe you?
 A: Charismatic, Honest, and Loving (these are my boyfriend's choice of words, and just one example of why I love him so much)

Q: How do you promote your blog?
A: Social media is by far the biggest help in promoting my blog. If you aren't already following The Mason Dixon Home on Instagram, I'd love for the extra support!

Q: What's your favorite flower?
A: My favorite flower is tulips BUT I don't like buying or receiving flowers. My boyfriend bought me flowers once :) He now buys me candles instead. I love flowers and the smell of them brings me simple joy, like every other woman. But to me the price of flowers doesn't justify the 3 days of happiness they give me. I'd rather get a candle that smells like flowers. 

Q: Favorite place to eat?
A: Honestly, at home. My daughter is at the age where going out to eat is the least bit enjoyable so we have become major home bodies in the last few months. If I was going out without her though, it'd be Mexican food. 

Q: Favorite Netflix series?
A: I don't watch Netflix. Crazy, I know, but we really don't watch much television. Give me Dance Moms and The Bachelor and I'm set for the year. 

Q: Do you have a favorite lotion?
 A: I don't have a favorite lotion but I am anxious to try The Blissful Body lotion.

Q: What's your favorite blog post of your own and why?
A: I am extremely new to the blogging community, with only 3 posts on my blog. My favorite out of those 3 is: Toddler Approved Green Smoothie. It discusses some of the changes that my boyfriend and I have made to become better role models for our daughter. 

Q: What are you passionate about?
A: This is going to sound cliche, but I am truly most passionate about being a mom. The two most important people in my life are my boyfriend and our daughter and they will always be my priority. 

Q: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
A: In 5 years I see myself just as in love as I am today. 

Q: Do you have a favorite make-up or skin care item?
A: I have been LOVING bright pink lips for this time of year. My current go to lipstick is NYX Butter Lipstick in Pink Lyric.
