I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by Andrea from Flowers and Faux Pas, and I could not be more honored and excited to accept this award! Andrea is a mom of two adorable little girls and she blogs about everyday life. He blog is focused on being inspired and inspiring others to try something new.

Since I have joined the blogging community, I have been blown away by the support bloggers give each other. The support I’ve received and have seen is amazing! There are so many great bloggers out there to learn from, laugh with, and even just “feel your pain”.

My Answers to the Questions from Andrea:
Q1: If you could only live in an eternal Summer or eternal Winter, which would you choose?
I would chose eternal summer hands down. Camping, swimming, the beach, not having to wear a big bunchy coat, I could go on…!
Q2. Do you prefer sweet or savory foods?
I prefer sweet foods. I think I would say chocolate cake is my favorite food!
Q3. If you had a Theme song, what would it be?
This is a hard question! My husband and I took a quiz online for some inspiration and his result was “Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice. Which I think is totally fitting and hilarious! My result was “Run the World (Girls)” by Beyonce. Which I don’t think is very accurate, but I was flattered they thought so! I think I am going to go with “Walking on Sunshine” because it is a happy song with a feel good tune and that is what I would want people to associate me with.
Q4. What was the last book you read?
Unfortunately, I haven’t read a book in a long time! I just never seem to have the energy or time. The last book I did read though when I was starting my blog at the end of last year was, “The Digital Mom Handbook” by bloggers Audrey from momgenerations.com and Colleen from classymommy.com. This is a great book if you are thinking about starting a blog!
Q5. Are you an early bird or a night owl?
Night owl for sure. I always wish I could be a morning person though because I feel like I could be more productive if I could just get my butt out of bed a little bit earlier! I have also passed this trait onto my baby bear.
Q6. What is your dream vacation?
Somewhere tropical. Probably at one of those resorts in a place like Bora Bora with the individual bungalows built out over the water!
Q7. Stilettos, Sneakers or Ballet Flats?
Sneakers. You can usually find me in Keds. It’s almost sandal season though and I am all about the sandals.
Q8. What is your go-to recipe?
This banana muffin recipe. I make these all the time! I’ve been meaning to write a post about these.
Q9. Do you prefer your men bearded or clean shaven?
Bearded, but well maintained. Can’t stand the messy mountain man look!
Q10. Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog mostly because I needed an outlet and something other than raising a tiny human to focus my attention on. I enjoy sharing my life, ideas, and lessons learned, especially if they help someone, or at the very least make it known they are not alone in the struggle!
Q11. If your blog had a Mission Statement, what would it be?
Jeez – I can’t even come up with a tag line for my blog, never mind a whole mission statement! But I will try! My mission statement would be:
As you visit Life As Mama Bear, it is my mission to make you laugh, keep you company, inspire you, and most importantly show you that you are not on this journey through motherhood alone.
