Liebster Award: I'd like to thank my mom, and my dad, and um... my dogs.

What the heck is the LIEBSTER AWARD? Well, it is only an AWESOME award given to up and coming bloggers. Given by other up and coming bloggers. It's a cool way to find other blogs and feel like you are getting into the blogging stratosphere. It is simple, you get nominated by someone else, mention their page and a link to their blog in your Liebster Award Post, answer the 11 (oooo my favorite number!) questions they give you, then tag 11 other nominees and give them a new set of 11 questions to answer. Pretty cool huh? 

I'd like to thank the beautiful Katelyn from Leaning, Creating, Living for nominating me.
oh and my family. my boyfriend. my dogs. my professors. my best friend. yadda yadda.

1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because in my religion and culture, journaling is a big deal. I used to be pretty good about writing in a journal every now and then, but lugging around those books can get tiresome. So can writing with pen. To me, blogging is like a journal. I will always have access to it, because it is right there on the internet. It's a great way to unwind. & you meet great people and learn so many things.

2. What is your favorite thing to do when you are not busy?
My absolute favorite is to cuddle up to Spencer and watch TV series or documentaries. Our current addiction? Dexter. I recently finished Gossip Girl, and have moved on to Nip Tuck.
& I like to bake.

3. What is your favorite movie & why?
This is too hard. I have a collection 0f 100+ DVDs, and they are all my favorite.

4. How would you describe yourself in three words?
driven. opinionated. sensitive.

5. Where is your favorite place to shop & why?
I love Kohl's. There is just something about saving money when shopping that gets me going. How could you resist a clothing store that tells you how much you saved at the bottom of the receipt? 

6. What is your favorite blog post you've ever done & why?
hmmm... probably my Beauty Comes in All Sizes post.

7. What is your favorite outfit to wear?
A girl loves to dress up, but i liiiiive in yoga pants/work out pants. They are the jam to my butter. Literally;)

8. What is your favorite place you've ever been & why?
I used to live in California. That is my favorite place. I love wearing light jackets in the winter. I love seeing the sun almost everyday. I love how it has green hills all the time, and there are purple flowering trees in the springtime. We owned an avocado tree and an orange tree when we lived there and I remember making guacamole and fresh lemonade. There is just a freshness in the air in California, making it so much easier to breathe. I get a little stir crazy here in Utah in the Winter time; I like to be outdoors with the sun on me. And the beach is my friend. In high school when my friends would sit on the shore tanning, I'd be out in the water playing with my brother or dad learning to body surf. Have you ever just floated on your back in the waves? It literally is what I imagine heaven will feel like.

9. If you could do one thing you've always wanted to do at this very moment, what would it be?
I would love to hike to Machu Picchu. With Spencer. & a some tan toned legs (currently lacking those)

10. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Feeling like what I say can be read by others. Not in a famous sort of way, but a way that can change people's minds about something. I want to affect other's through what I feel when I write.

11. How'd you come up with your blog name?
This was a hard one. Originally Lasko's Fiascos sounded funny. But ambiguous is one of my favorite words. I always feel like I am growing and changing and never constant or static. If something is ambiguous, to me, it means that it is unclear and intangible. I feel like my life is always like that depending on the day, the season, or the year.
