A Liebster Award

Thank you so much to Lindsey at High Heels and Training Wheels for nominating me for a Liebster award...too cool! :)

A Liebster award is a fun way to get to know other bloggers and a chance for me to tell you about the bloggers I enjoy.
I have been given a list of 11 questions to answer about myself so here goes....

1.) Why did you start blogging?
I was feeling a little lost actually, and really wanted a place where I could talk about the things I enjoyed and connect with people. I wasn't completely sure what I was going to talk about hence the name Random Thoughts... :)

2.) What has been your favourite part about it?
I love being able to talk about beauty products and clothes, my weekly struggle to lose the baby weight, fun things to cook and's like having a journal that anyone can read. Sometimes it can be hard to put yourself out there but the positive feedback I have received from my awesome readers is my favourite part of all. Thank you for taking the time to tell me you enjoy reading. 

3.) Have you learned anything from your experience?
I've learned how much I enjoy writing! I didn't realize that my daily posts would become so important to me but if I miss a day for whatever reason (sickness, travel etc...) it really feels like my day isn't complete.

4.) What blogs do you go to for inspiration and why?
I have several that I visit regularly and they all add to my life and inspire me in different ways, whether it's new fashions, good eats, travel, beauty reviews, home decor or just life in general I love them all. Here are some that I enjoy:

5.) In lalaland where you could do whatever you wanted, what would be the perfect day for you?
This one is tough...there are so many things I would want to do...I couldn't fit them all into one day and make it perfect...I'm working on a perfect/imperfect life. ;)

6.) If you could live anywhere where would it be and why?
Again, another tough one. I think life is where/what you make it and while I would love to travel I'm happy to live wherever my family is.

7.) How would you describe yourself and the kind of blogger you are?
I would say my blog is a lifestyle blog. I'm just trying to find my own way in the world and I talk about my day to day doing just that.

8.) What is your favourite thing to wear?
I love my jeans. I also love heels but being a stay at home mom there isn't a lot of call to wear them, I do try though. ;)

9.) What would you call your style?
Casual/traditional. I like to wear more of the basics with bright pops of colour.

10.) Coffee or Tea?

11.) What are you most proud of?
My kids. They are my world, and my heart swells with pride for them everyday. I love seeing them take the time to be kind to other people and I hope they go on to do great things in this world.

Now here are the blogs I chose to nominate:

The Rules:

{1} Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you.

{2} Choose 11 new bloggers to pass the award on to and link them in your post.

{3} Create 11 new questions for the chosen bloggers.

9.) Who is your style icon?
10.)  Top two favourite books you've recently read?

And here are 11 random facts about me:
I'm 5'9. I love dogs, Dobermans in particular. I wish I was a runner (I'm working on it!). I don't like sushi. My favourite movie is Casino Royale. I do NOT have a green thumb (working on that too!). I love poultry. My moms shrimp salad is one of my comfort foods. The "Sister" Jane Foxhunting Mysteries is one of my favourite series of books. I love researching dog pedigrees. I grew up riding horses but haven't been on one in over ten years.

Now you know a little more about me. :) 
Hope you're having a great Thursday!
