If you’re reading this right now, I want you to know I appreciate and cherish your support and interest in Sweet Pea. From day one, there has been people I’ve met through this incredible experience of mine that has shown me just how vast the blogging world really is, and how many countless people there are in it that actually wish for you to succeed, and will help you while cheering you on every step of the way. One of those very special people is the lovely miss Rae over at Pastel Carousel. She, much like me, is a new blogger that happens to be so unique and trendy that she’s already grabbed a nomination for the Liebster Award. Her style is like non other and her blog is so eye catching and fascinating that I couldn’t help but immediately follow her as soon as I saw it. And, she’s a SAHM like me, too! If you love the color pink, girly things, artistic lifestyle, high fashion images, pastel eye candy galore or anything else that I’d consider awesome, follow her blog!

For those of you who don’t know, the Liebster Award is given to those who’ve created new blogs that are still in its primitive state with less than 200 followers but are considered ‘Worth Reading’ amongst other award winning bloggers in the blogosphere. It was devised to help connect other bloggers together and to help those other bloggers find new, interesting blogs to discover and follow. Liebster Award nominees have already gained the recognition and respect from these other relative bloggers despite their young age, and have officially marked their presence and have been noticed in this fascinating blogging world we digitally live in. This award can only be passed on by another blogger who has already been nominated themselves, and therefore has the ability & authorization to nominate another new, up-&-coming blog and today Rae at Pastel Carousel informed me that I was her top pick, and that Sweet Pea has been nominated for a Liebster Award, too!😍

So here I am, almost at the close of day 7 since the official relaunch of Sweet Pea Apple of my Eye, and I received a nomination for the Liebster Award! For any of you out there who ever wanted to try something but never put pen to paper and made it happen, DO IT! The power of the universe and all the laws that govern it will astonish you once you are aligned with your true self and set out to do what your heart and soul were meant to do. The more sure you are of your decisions, the less you need others to approve. So find what speaks to you, put everyone else aside and figure out what truly makes you happy. Then go for it! You’ll be shocked at just how fast the world rearranges itself to bring forth all the people, places and things you need to facilitate your journey.

As a nominee, I now get to select 5 special bloggers who are also relatively new and have less than 200 followers to also receive the Liebster Award! 

I will be making my selections this week, so if you think you have a noteworthy blog and are interested in a review, please follow Sweet Pea and comment below to let me know: 1) the name and category of your blog, 2) how long you’ve been blogging, 3) how many followers you have, and 4) what your intentions are as a blogger. Is this a hobby? Is this your own personal way of journaling? Is this a job in which you hope to make your only full time source of income with? Whatever your reasons for blogging, let me know! Also, each nominee selected at the end of the week must follow and complete…


Thank and link the person who nominated you.

Include the Liebster Award sticker in the post too, don’t want to forget that!

Nominate 5 -10 other bloggers who you feel are worthy of this award and comment on one of their posts to let them know of their nomination.

These bloggers must have less than 200 followers.

Answer the eleven questions the person who nominated you created for you to answer. Then, make eleven questions of your own for your nominees. You may use the same questions.

Lastly, any nominee must copy and paste these Liebster Award rules in their post and answer the 11 questions given to them.


1. How long have you been blogging?

I’ve practiced and dabbled at it in the past, but only became a true “blogger” as of October 1st, 2015… My son’s first birthday!

2. Do you schedule your blog posts?

Nope. I take things day by day, both in life and in writing.

3. Cotton candy or ice cream?

Ice cream, chocolate or moose tracks, to be exact!

4. What’s your favorite season and why?

Winter!!! Maybe because in Florida, we sweat our biscuits off all year and only get a two month break from Jan-Feb, or maybe it’s because of all those winter boots, stockings, tights, sweaters and scarves! However the biggest reason why I love winter is because of all the magic the Holiday season always provides. A cool Florida day is Mother Nature’s anti-depressant for me, it instantly makes me smile and happy when I walk outside and take my first deep breath of fresh, crisp winter air.

5. What fictional character best represents your personality?

Lara Croft. Why? Because she is badass, self sufficient, can take care of her own business and still looks fly. Plus, I’m jealous of her long hair. 😜

6. Have you ever been to Disneyland/Disneyworld?

Yes! I live only a couple hours away from Disney World, and it’s true what they say. It is the most magical place on Earth… Besides the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, of course. I think they got that magic thing down pat. 😄

7. What’s your favorite app?

WordPress! If it weren’t for the app, I’d never be on here! I do everything from my phone, it’s a rare day when I’m actually sitting down and parked right in front of a real computer anymore.

8. What’s your favorite color?

Black, but since I know you’re gonna say that’s not a color… Blue! Princess Diana/Kate Middelton Royal sapphire blue!

9. Has it always been your favorite color?

Yes ☺️ Although I do love Tiffany blue, and at one point my love of teal trumped my overuse of black in my wardrobe department.

10. What was your favorite cartoon growing up?

Those 6:00am Disney Channel classic cartoon mash ups that had 10 minute cartoon segments of all the Disney faves from Mickey Mouse to Goofy & Donald Duck. I was always a Disney Channel kid and never a Nickelodeon one. I used to sit at the coffee table in front of the TV before school and watch the Mickey Mouse Club with Britney Spears & Justin Timberlake and then my good ol’ Disney cartoon classics while eating a Entenmann’s chocolate donut with a glass of ice cold milk for breakfast every single morning. Fun fact; that’s still my daily breakfast!

11. Would you rather own a unicorn who bites or a dragon who snores?

A unicorn that bites! She may be temperamental, but since when are strong, beautiful females not? As bad as her bite may be, she’d still be the most fantastical, beautiful living creature my little brown eyes ever did see.

    This award you speak of sounds fun 🙂 Thanks for finding and following me, I just spent some time looking around your site and am now following you as well. I am still so new to this whole blogging thing and started to create a place I could find comfort in my daughters disease, and maybe help other people too. I am now LOVING it and finding all these new exciting blogs. I cant believe this world of putting pen to paper has been hidden from me until now!

      Lol, I agree! I don’t know what took me so long to get on!


  4. LARA CROFT! Awesome answer! And I so want to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It’s definitely on my to-do list for when the kids get a little older. ❤

      Well good think you didn’t yet, because they just opened up a whole new part of the park this year! Now it extends from Islands of Adventure to Universal Studios! You actually get to ride the hogwartz express over to each side of the Wizarding World! And I actually got called to role play in Ollivander’s wand shop! It was AMAZING you MUST go one day. Experience of a lifetime!
