You Like Me, You Really Like Me

I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!


That toddler is exhibiting all of my feels writing this post…or, ya know, when my song comes on when I’m out with friends.

But whatever.

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks over here in my neck of the woods, full of work things, friend things and family things.

So now, I’m taking some time for a me thing: blogging.

Imagine my surprise when I check my inbox after a long weekend and find that egghead over heels has nominated my blog for the Liebster Award! Now that was the best part of waking up. 😉


I’m so excited when I see people are enjoying what they read on Babbling C. Brooks; it seriously makes my day/week/year/life.

I would also like to nominate a few blogs I’ve recently stumbled upon and fallen in love with (and apparently all start with W’s –I promise that was not planned):

I also have to answer a couple of questions to answer:

Where is your favorite place in the world and why? I’m going to have to go with Maui. I’m in love with the sand and lush green environment, along with the island way of life. Us people on the mainland should take note.

What made you start your blog? Fresh out of college, I was so used to writing every day that I felt like I needed to keep on with it, but I wanted to write about something a little more enticing than rhetorical theories.

What is your dream job? If I could be Gal Meets Glam, that would make my life. Follow her Instagram at your own risk –serious jealousy may occur.

How did you come up with your blog name? Being ever so clever, I wanted to do a take on my name, while still providing some anonymity. My first name starts with C and my middle name is Brooks…and I also tend to talk a lot. But seriously. A lot. So, I figured Babbling C. Brooks was as good of name as any.

When you are having a bad day how do you cheer yourself up? I usually go home, put on pjs and watch Grey’s Anatomy–the ones when Derek was still alive. *sniffle*

What is your biggest fear? Getting cancer. I watched my dad go through it and eventually lose his fight to it 10 years ago. So now I’m almost anal about preventative care.

PS It’s sunscreen season, people!!!!!!

How would your friends describe you? Cunning. Witty. Intelligent. Beautiful. Full of shit.

What is your favorite book and why? I’m going to go with Pride & Prejudice, which is so cliche, I just rolled my own eyes, but it’s true! Darcy never goes out of style.

What is your obsession? I have a lot of them, but recently it’s been buying anything and everything at Sephora. CURSE YOU, MAKEUP GODS!!!

What is your favorite comfort food? Hands down, mac & cheese. I probably have a box of the Kraft Spongebob mac & cheese at least twice per week. I know it’s horrible for you and that I’ve made real mac & cheese that’s much cheesier, but I don’t care. Everyone has flaws.

Tell us 1 random fact about yourself. I always, always, always have to put on Aquaphor for my chapped lips. If I was stuck on a deserted island, it would be the one thing I’d have to have with me, otherwise, I’m pretty sure I’d keel over right then and there. 

Until next time,

C. Brooks

    Congrats on your award. Smart move on the cancer prevention, I know how much it sucks. And while they still don’t know what caused mine and what if anything could have prevented it, I can tell you that the ones that have been found to be somewhat preventable are the worst. My uncle survived melanoma twice, and just barely. Lung cancer still happens in non-smokers but is so much more in smokers and is awful. So good on you for doing everything you can to prevent it. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
