-The Liebster Award…

“It’s given by bloggers to new bloggers as a way to recognize their hard work and also provide a platform to discover new blogs. The word “liebster” is German and means kind, dear, lovely, pleasant, valued, endearing, and welcome.”

The rules are:

1. Thank your Liebster Award presenter…
2. Answer the 11 questions presented to you.
3. Nominate 11 up and coming bloggers for the Liebster Award
4. Provide 11 questions for your nominees to answer and notify them of the nomination.

We are excited to be nominated for this award! We are really honored that so many bloggers thought of us. Thank you Texas Decor, DIY Passion, Little House Of Four, Stripes and Polka Dots, and The Queen And Her Court for nominating and supporting us.

Since we were nominated by five different bloggers we decided to answer two questions from each.This will bring our total to ten, rather than fifty five. We know, we are rule breakers. Real rebels.)

1. When did you first discover the world of blogging?
Emily – I have admired many different blogs for awhile, but it wasn’t until 2012 when I started my first blog. (It flopped!)
Erin – 2005. I started a family blog.

2. Who inspired you the most to start a blog?
Emily – My sister, Erin.
Erin – My daughter.

3. Where did you get the name for your blog?
It is a combo of our middle names Erin Elizabeth and Emily Joan.

4. What gets your creative juices flowing?
Emily – Trash! Garbage! Recyclables! But not the disgusting kind.
Erin – The desire for decor in my house and lack of money to spend frivolously.

5. Are you an early bird or night owl?
Emily – Early Bird!
Erin – Night Owl!

6. What is the craziest thing you have done?
Emily – Have two kids. (It is also one of the greatest things I have ever done.)
Erin – I don’t do crazy.

7. If you could have a dinner party with you and five other guests (dead or alive) who would they be and why?
Emily – I would have myself at age 4, myself at age 20, my current self, future self at age 43, myself the day that I die and Kermit the frog. I just feel like I could really learn a lot from myself and Kermit. (It’s not easy being green.)
Erin – I would never have a dinner with only five people. I like big parties!

8. Is white chocolate really chocolate?
Emily – Nope!
Erin – Only on Thursdays!

9. What is your biggest fear?
