Liebster Award- Questions + Nominees

Liebster Award Badge

Are you ready to learn what Miss Davis Finn wanted everyone to know about me? I wasn’t kidding when I said to sit back and relax! Please, go grab a snack or some coffee before continuing, this is a longer post than usual!

Alright let’s go!

When and why did you start blogging?

My blog began in September of this year (2015). Quite honestly, I had been wanting to start a blog for quite some time. I am honestly not exactly sure what my reasoning was, but after beginning this journey I have learned that more than anything, I love meeting other bloggers! Ugh I know, so unoriginal, but so so true.

What is your dream job?

This might come as a real shocker but I literally dream of blogging full time. In the meantime, I am in school to become a high school English teacher (scary I know). I would most definitely not be angry if a high school English teacher is what my job title ends up being, I would love to get the chance to change the lives of little demons while educating them. 🙂 🙂 🙂

What song is at the top of your playlist right now?

Alright, I really cannot answer this with only one song,

The show- Lenka

Hello- Adele (DUH)

California- Airborne Toxic Event (really anything by them because they are the best band to ever exist.)

What are three things on your bucket list?

Only three?! Oh man. Give me a minute here…

Well I mean, #1 is to make blogging a full time gig

I would love the chance to sky dive, or go in a shark cage, or bungee jump, or all three! (that probably shouldn’t count as 1 thing, whoops)

And let’s end it with one that has always been on my bucket list, the chance to do charity work in Africa, and maybe even adopt a little one from there.

What is your favorite quote?

“Today’s precious moments are tomorrow’s precious memories.” I had this on my wall growing up and I will always love it. It reminds me to make the most of everyday so that I can grow old with beautiful memories.

As much as I love quotes, I also want to share my favorite poem. I loved it before I got pregnant, but now that I have a daughter it melts my heart. Watch it here.

What do you love most about yourself?

Hard question. I think I love most how open minded I am. I do not like to judge or exclude or hate anyone. It physically hurts me when I realize I am having such thoughts. I work every day to be the most open minded person I can be, and I pride myself on how far I have come.

Who has been your biggest inspiration?

Because I cannot seem to follow the rules, I am going to be ahead and give my top five inspirations.

My mom- *aww* When it comes to motherhood, I look to the best example I have ever had. She inspires me to be at least half as good of a mom that she is.

My daughter and husband- When it comes to literally anything, these two inspire me. To be a better person, wife, mom, blogger, student, employee. Anything. I am not even kidding.

Other bloggers- When it comes to this crazy world I have thrown myself into, I am constantly looking to other bloggers for guidance and inspiration. I truly love how easy it can be to find them on Instagram!

My sophomore year English teacher- When it comes to my education she is my biggest inspiration. She was a total bad ass, super smart, and totally defied the stereotype of an English teacher. Not only was she extremely cool, for some reason she saw something in me. She encouraged my writing and continuously called me a genius. Man, it has been too long since I have visited her. She has no idea I’m blogging or that I have decided to become an English teacher. She will not be too happy with one of those two things I just said, which do you think? 😉

Last but not least… White- okay super weird but hear me out. White spaces, white decor, ugh. The color white is just so clean and crisp. For some reason it brings out my creative side and inspires me to write. My mom laughs that I want so many white things (couch, comforter, etc) in my home, but I need it!

Favorite book.

So I truly thought long and hard about this. I really wanted to make a huge list but decided I would stick with one. I love reading. When I have the free time I can go through 3-5 books a week. I have new favorites all the time. The one I am picking for this? Definitely not the most complex book I have ever read but I just think it is so cute. After reading it the first time I went to buy myself a copy. That’s when you know a book is good.

Why We Broke Up- Daniel Handler

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

SWEDEN! Oh how I long to even just visit the place. Not only are my ancestors from there, it is a pretty awesome place to be living in.

It is basically one of the capitals for coffee drinking, education is affordable and/or free to everyone, gender equality is HUGE as well as being eco-friendly, and it is just simply BEAUTIFUL.

If you still don’t believe me check out this article- 20 things to know before moving to Sweden.

Still not convinced? Please do me a favor and check out this sarcastic article by good old Buzzfeed.

I’ll be honest though, those dark and cold winters would definitely be a challenge.

What three words best describe you?

Gahhhhh. I have never been good at this. In elementary school when you had to lay out your name like

T

H

I

S

and pick words to describe yourself that start with each letter… it never was too good.

I had to go to my husband for this, he made a list of ten and then *tried* to narrow it down to three from there-

Compassionate

Intelligent

Beautiful

Hard-Working

Alright, now that you have been tortured enough, let’s get to the good part!

I nominate:

Life Love and a Long Run

My Life as Nallely

Eight Pepperberries

Whimsy in My Cup

Follow the Dyers

Miss Sarah’s Scribbles

Finding We Project

Jeremy and Bailey Blog

Hope and a Breath

Hormonal Dad

  7. What social media platform are you most active on? Leave a link if you would like so we can find you!
  8. If you could only eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
