Hi there, guys! I hope that your week has gotten off to a fantastic start 🙂 Today, I will be writing about an award that a very sweet blogging friend gave me last week!
Maha over at Beyoutiful included me in her nominees on her recent award post. She was celebrating surpassing 700 followers, which is absolutely amazing! She blogs about fashion, inspiration, and her travels. I love reading everything she writes about! If you aren’t already following her, I highly recommend her site! ❤
For the Entertainer Blog Award, everyone who is nominated answers the same five questions, then “nominates 12 other bloggers who are funny, inspiring and most important of all ENTERTAINING!” I can’t wait to do this!
Q: Why did you start a blog in the first place?
A: At the beginning of this year, it was on my heart to start blogging again. As I’ve mentioned before, I have been blogging on and off for years! But I’ve never really been part of a community of bloggers like I am now. ❤ Anyway, my motive behind creating Dreaming of Guatemala was to give myself a place to write about my passions, interests, and hobbies. At first, I started with different lifestyle-type posts, like my desk tour, evening routine, and monthly favorites, but as I’ve adopted my own blogging style, it has grown to also include other things. I started baking and cooking and recording my progress (and success!), created different series, and I’m actually still learning about what I want to write about. To sum it up, I wanted a blog to talk about what makes me happy. 🙂
Q: What is your favorite book?
A: This is quite possibly the hardest question for me to answer!! When it comes to practically anything in my life, I have lots of favorites all at once, and that list is constantly changing. Movies, books, songs, food, interests – you name it. With books, I find myself extremely interested in reading a certain genre for a long period of time, and for right now, that genre is historical fiction. The individual book that first comes to mind, as I read it a month or two ago, is “Short-Straw Bride” by Karen Witemeyer. I can’t even explain how much I love it!
Q: What do you dislike the most?
A: In truth, it deeply pains me when people use God’s name in vain. Not so much “omg,” but I still don’t like that; I’m talking about the extreme ways of saying what I mentioned in a very disrespectful way.
Q: What is your favorite food at the mall?
A: Any time we go, I seek out a place that sells pretzels! That usually ends up being Auntie Anne’s, as that’s what they specialize in, but I’m always up for trying new soft pretzels, too. lol The classic pretzel with cheese dip is my go-to, but if I’m feeling extra fancy, I’ll get a sugar and cinnamon pretzel, complete with a glaze dip. Delicious!
Q: What is your favorite pastime?
A: Blogging! As of right now, it is most definitely blogging. I enjoy writing posts, responding to comments, browsing others’ blogs – the whole process! I do have to remind myself that there are other things I should do with my free time, as well, from reading books to learning a new language to playing the piano, but blogging is always the first one I want to do.
Now it’s time for some nominations! Let’s see if I can find 12 …
In no particular order, She Lives Love, A Happily Ella After, rockandminerals4him, smilingdreamer, Veronica Marie, PINKLOGS, Amelia in Hull, My Blessing By Grace, Christ, Crafts & Cuisine, and Southern Lights, Atlanta Nights! I love sooo many blogs, but these are the main twelve that entertain me 😀
Happy Monday, guys!!
