A couple days ago Tash nominated me for the Liebster award. I’ve done this before but since taking a break from blogging and coming back I am honored to go it again. If you haven’t checked out Tash’s blog you must do so right now. Her recipes are amazing and her photography is just, WOW.
What’s your best childhood memory?
Once a year my cousin, sister and I would get cans of shaving cream and spray them all over the trampoline and then jump!
What’s something you regret, and how would you change it if you could?
I hate this question but to be completely honest, it would be that I had kids before I found out who I was. Obviously, I love them and I love my life with them but that’s the honest truth. Wait for kids until you explore yourself.
What makes you smile?
My children, good music, and good food!
What is the first thing that you do in the morning?
Make coffee, and Josh’s breakfast and lunch before he goes to work.
Who is a hero in your life?
Any woman who is confident in herself with a kind heart. There are so many awesome people in this world.
Do you prefer a home-cooked meal, or to go out to a restaurant?
I love to cook so most of our meals are at home. I like knowing what’s in them. However, it’s so special for me to go out to a restaurant and try something new especially if I’m traveling.
What would be the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
Knowing me, I’d probably cry. Then I would go out to a really nice restaurant and think about everything I get to do with the money.
What do you admire most about yourself?
I would say my big heart. I want to give to others as much as possible.
What is the most-watched movie/DVD in your collection?
I know every word to Clueless but lately every time I see The Vow on I want to watch it.
10. What’s a nickname you’ve had or one that you would give yourself?
My sister calls me Weed. Because Ashley become Ashweed became just weed. Yeah, idk, she’s weird. Since there were so many Ashley’s in school growing up people called me Cook (Last name.)
11. What’s your favourite ice cream flavour?
Cake batter. Oh my yum.
Provide 11 random facts about yourself.

I am a licensed cosmetologist.
I play the piano.
I love to draw and I love art.
I have big dreams and most of them I’ve never spoken to a soul.

My favorite flower to look at is a Gerber Daisy but my favorite flower to buy are carnations because they last the longest.

I’m shy but I love talking to people. I made friends with the homeless man in my town when I was 16 and he still waves to me when I see him.
I often get mistaken for my children’s sister and people say I don’t look a day over 18.
(Bonus FF) I take way too many selfies and my kids get embarrassed of me.
I’m supposed to nominate other people but I believe most of the blogs I read have already done this award. So I nominate anyone who wants to tell me more about themselves!
