Thank you's & awards

Thank you, thank you to Clarissa Falco from Mrs. Med School for nominating me for the Brotherhood of the World Blogger's Award. Claire's blog is absolutely adorable and is all about med school wifery, DIY, motherhood, and life in Texas! Go check it out! 

Quick story about how Claire and I met in the blogisphere.. My sister-in-law, Dani, kept telling me that I should go look up this med school wife blog that she loved. I told her I would and then kinda forgot about it for a while... Then one day when I was looking for some new blogs to follow I stumbled up on Claire's blog and I was so excited! Turns out that Claire was in my very first class at BYU ever -- a contemporary dance class. She was SO fun to take class with! Anyway, I'm thrilled that we've found each other in the blogging world so we can stay caught up on eachother's lives, not to mention that her blog has been so great to read in preparation for becoming a medical school wife myself.

Here is how the nomination works:

  • Thank and link the blogger who nominated you
  • List the rules and display the badges on your blog
  • Answer the questions sent to you
  • Nominate other bloggers and notify them
  • Create questions for your nominees

1. Why do you blog? I blog to document my life for myself and Parker, my future kiddos, my mom, and my nana. It's a place where I can spew my thoughts, share my adventures and my accomplishments, and express my creativity. 

2. If you were given an extra $200 how would you want to spend it? I would either spend it on clothes, crafting supplies, or home decor :)

3. What is your favorite food? Potatoes in EVERY FORM! I can't get enough!

4. Where do you see your blog in five years? Realistically, in the same place its at now... In my dreams I've found my blogging niche - if you haven't noticed I'm kind of all over the place by posting about scrapbooking and crafts, sometimes hairstyles, random blabbering. But with that being said, it wouldn't be a lifestyle blog if I didn't share my everyday life right? I would love to experiment with fashion blogging someday. 

5. What lessons have you learned through your blogging experience? I've learned that I blog mostly for me. I love documenting my life with photos and videos, being able to write things down. Its a good collective place for me to store all my thoughts. I've also learned that I love sharing my life with others! 

6. What are your current three favorite blogs? Love Taza (those kids!!), Barefoot Blonde (those braids!!), and Jordan Cidelle (she's kind of been on a blogging hiatus but I loved whenever she would post). 

7. What secret skills do you have? I can lick my nose, I have been practicing my calligraphy, and I can handle the burn of the first drink of a diet pepsi better than anyone (is that even a skill?!!). 
8. If you could live anywhere for a year where would it be? This is an excellent question. Hawaii, Bald Head Island, New York City, maybe somewhere in Europe.... I'll admit that my first thought was Cardston though ;)

9. What goals do you currently have? To find a job, get in better shape, learn to cook! I actually made progress on all three this week!

10. What is your favorite holiday? Christmas and birthdays! I LOVE BIRTHDAYS! 

I nominate:

My questions for you:
1. What is your dream vacation?
2. What is your dream job?
3. What goals do you currently have?
4. What is your favorite thing about yourself?
5. You just won a one way ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you go?
6. Favorite thing about your spouse?
7. What is your guilty pleasure?
8. Why did you start blogging in the first place?
9. What is your favorite scent?
10. If you were a mermaid, what would be your mermaid name? 

Thanks for reading! 
xoxo, Chelan

    1. Consider it me saying, "Come back to blogging because I love your blog and wanna hear about all the adventures you've been going on recently!!"
