The Liebster Award

I’m so excited to be nominated by Corinne from The Life Scout for the Liebster Award!  The Liebster Award is given to promote a newer blog they think is worth following, and to learn a little more about fellow bloggers.  If you haven't visited The Life Scout yet, I'd highly recommend it!  
(By the way, "liebster" is German for "dearest" or "darling" - warm fuzzy feelings all around)

Part of the Liebster award is that I have to answer some questions about myself and Suppose Anything Goes, then pass the award along to a new set of bloggers I enjoy following. This is a great way to discover some new blogs and to support the community!

What made you start blogging?
I was in a major period of transition in my life, and needed an outlet for some energy.  Suppose Anything Goes arose out of the fact that at that point in my life, "anything goes" was par for the course. Instead of fighting the flux (type A/borderline control freak problems), I decided to embrace it. 
I also really enjoy learning new skills, and all the little things that come with blogging appealed to me as a fun challenge.  

Who is your favorite blogger?
I am constantly inspired by Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere, and Jacey from Damsel in Dior

What is one word you would use to describe yourself?
I asked my best friend to provide an answer for this one, and his response was "Impossibletodescribeinonlyoneword." Ha! I wouldn't have it any other way.  

Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I'm absolutely a morning person, but preferably a caffeinated morning person. I think there's something so special about the earliest hours of the day - full of possibility!

What is on your bucket list?
I would love to travel to every continent. On a smaller scale, I keep a 101 Things in 1001 Days list, and love crossing things off! 

Are you a cat person or a dog person?
I love all animals (seriously - all living creatures), but I'm a dog person. I think it's because I understand their behavior way more than I understand cats. Plus, you can't beat the happy greeting they give you! 

What is the last film you saw?
The last movie I saw in theaters was American Hustle, which I enjoyed a lot. The most recent older film I watched was Amélie - if you haven't seen it, remedy that immediately! 

What is the farthest place you have ever traveled?
That would be Italy, as part of my two month long backpacking trip in Europe. Hopefully that is no longer true in the near future - I have a serious case of wanderlust. 

What's the best advice you have ever received?
My father is a pastor and quoted many Bible verses while I was growing up. One that  stuck with me is Philippians 2:14-15: "Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless."  I'm sure I take the verse out of  context, but whenever I'm at a loss for what I should do in a situation, I focus on the word "blameless." To me, that means making the choice that I proudly accept all possible consequences of, and that does no harm to others.  It's also a great reminder that complaining gets you nowhere! 

You can take three beauty products with you to a deserted island. What would you take?
Sunscreen, Smith's Rosebud Salve, and Chanel Inimitable mascara 

What is your dream job?
In some ways, I'm doing it! I love having a flexible schedule and being surrounded by things and people who inspire me. I'd love to work as a magazine editor or community manager, though.

Thanks again Corinne! Here are some blogs I would like to nominate:
Summer from La Petite Rousse
Rachel from Cupcakes & Mimosas
Cori from Furniture Steals
Karalina from Happy and Healthy
