liebster award!

whoa! super cool! thank you 2 sweet obsession for nominating me for the liebster award!


here’s the rules:

  • Link back to the blogger who nominated you
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you by the blogger who nominated you
  • Nominate 3-11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers
  • Go to the blogs you nominated and notify them of your nomination
  • Give your nominees 11 questions to answer.

my questions:

  • If you could go on a dream trip anywhere in the world where would you go? I’d really like to check out Seoul.
  • What is your favorite book? I really like to read, so that often changes (same for me with movies and music!) but I just finished reading Rob Delaney: Mother. Wife. Sister. Human. Warrior. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban. Cabbage. By Rob Delaney, and I really enjoyed it!
  • What was your childhood dream job? Are you living it now and if not do you wish you were? When I was a girl, I wanted to be a model and a novelist. Currently, I am not either of these things. I was modeling until about 1.5 years ago, and I really enjoyed doing that for a while, but I am happy to not be modeling as a source of income anymore, however, I still do love having my picture taken! I have never been, and probably never will be a novelist, and I am totally okay with that. I am happy with who I am!
  • What is the best gift that you’ve ever received and why? Last year my husband bought be a sea foam green kitchenaid mixer and it changed my life. I love it SO much!
  • Who is your role model and why? I don’t really have a role model, more of a hodgepodge of ideas of what sort of person I would like to be.
  • What is your favorite family recipe? Sadly, I never really cooked with my family.
  • If you could only use one social media platform for the rest of your life which one would you choose? Instagram! Follow me! I’m @adorabelly
  • What is your favorite holiday and why? Thanksgiving! I love to eat food, make food and share food with people that I love.
  • Do you have a favorite song or band? Not really.
  • If you could travel in time when would you go to? The not so distant future – I am really curious as to how much longer our eco system has left. The way we treat our earth is so messed up 😦
  • What is the one thing you can’t live without? My puppy, Mila. She is so cute and sweet it kills me every time I look at her. I am seriously a big weirdo for my dog! LOL

As of tomorrow, I will be 19 weeks pregnant with my first child. we are expecting a little girl and we are going to name her Evelyn Rose. I cant wait to meet her, but in the meantime, thats all I do, I wait. When i had imagined being pregnant in the past, it always just seemed to me that you got pregnant, you immediately had a belly and then BOOM! baby. I know making a human takes 9 months – I get it – it just feels like a lot longer when it’s you who’s waiting to meet your new creature!

To kill the time, I’ve decided to master the art of being domestic – to be honest – it never really has been my forte but being as though I have every intention of being a stay at home mom (at least for a while) I may as well learn how to do it DAMN WELL! Before, I used this blog as an outlet for small batch recipes and little life anecdotes, but it’s taken a turn. I need a place to share stories because I must say, being domestic isn’t all that fun, BUT documenting and sharing is always fun and thats what I’m all about. I’m excited to share my journey into motherhood!

This is my baby.
