sponsor love: interview + GIVEAWAY from Andi of Andi Adams!!

today's sponsor is such a super duper sweet heart. we share a love for cupcakes, The Office, and come on, Toy Story 3 - love it! and i think the picture of her and her man is too cute, don't you?! she also has such fun color note card combos and cuuuuute rosette headbands stocked in her shop that you don't wanna miss! and be sure to show this lovely lady lots of love since she has been in the midst of moving. i went through that last year and i remember needing all the love i could get then - any encouragement through that crazy time!
meet andi.


  what is the last movie you saw in theaters?

I rarely go to the theater to watch a movie, but when Toy Story 3 came out... I couldn't resist! It was the first movie my hubby and I watched together (in a theater) since we had been married :P 

   what would you say is your soapbox?

Oh my goodness... I have so many of them, I am not sure how to choose. I would consider myself a pretty opinionated person, but I try not to push my opinions on other people. If there is a conversation I feel deeply about, I might put my two cents in but only if it remains a conversation. I really don't like for things to turn into arguments. I think for the most part people can discuss and debate without things getting too heated. 


I guess in my journey to adulthood, I am learning it is OK to have an opinion and stick to it. So, if I had to pick one specific soapbox for you (since that is the actual question :P) I would pick the topic of living within your means. There are too many people in my generation with a huge amount of debt (college expenses excluded), simply because they overextend themselves by not living by a simple budget. My husband and I have been very fortunate to have the help and guidance of others while learning to write a budget and live it out. I know it is possible for two people to live with a very small amount of money. I get so frustrated with credit card companies, because they target people right when they are 18 and may not have the guidance on how to protect yourself while using one (or not to get one at all).  

and your all time favorite cupcake flavor?

CHOCOLATE PLEASE! :P 
However, I would never turn down a cupcake. :P
