Me little, ole ME….

The other night while watching the Olympics with the hubby I grabbed my computer and started to blog hop. I hopped on over to Sara’s blog You.And.Me.Are.We and realized that I was nominated for The Liebster Award!! I was nominated once before for this same award, but I really was not sure how this all worked. Now I understand and I am completely HONORED to accept this award! 

Sara did such an excellent explanation of what The Liebster Award was so I thought that I would share with everyone. Here is her explanation…

The way this award - The Liebster Award - works is that it is given to bloggers by bloggers to help show some recognition to smaller blogs (under 200 followers). When a blogger is given an award, they must answer 11 questions that have been given to them by the person who nominated them, come up with 11 random facts about themselves to share with everyone, nominate 11 other {small} blogs, and have those blogs answer 11 questions.
Let the fun begin….
11 Random Facts About Me:

1) Whenever I get sleepy I start to rub both of my feet together and I do not even realize I am doing it most of the time. Rubbing my feet together when I am sleepy has become such a big habit my husband starts turning off lights and locking doors. When I start seeing the lights turn off I realize that I am rubbing my feet together and it is time for bed. Why is the first random fact about me? Well because I am rubbing my feet together right now.
2) Even though I am 23 years old and married I still do not flush the toilet at night because the noise from the toilet scares me and I cannot hear if someone is trying to kill me.
3) Just like everyone else, I LOVE Chocolate, but I will not eat plain chocolate. The chocolate has to have something in it like nuts, coconut or bits of something.
4) When I was somewhere between the grades of 5th through 7th, not sure what grade or age, but that does not even matter... what I am about to tell you should never have happened at any age. When bad weather would come a brewing I would grab a headband and use it as my mouth piece and act like I was a meteorologist. I mean the wind would be going 20 miles an hour and I would be standing in our front yard reporting the weather. My mom would be yelling from the front door to come in side, but I had to warn the people of the town.
5) I absolutely hate driving. I beg my husband to drive all the time. He always makes me drive during the day because he has to do all the driving at night due to the fact that I cannot see at night. Head lights blur together and I cannot read street signs at night because the glare off the headlights makes me unable to see the signs at all. Scary…I know! What is even scarier is that the DMV gave me my driver’s licenses
6) I HATE coffee!! The smell of coffee does not bother me too much, but the taste, holy moly, I cannot handle it at all. The taste of coffee makes me want to throw up. Cold coffee, hot coffee, candy flavored coffee or anything coffee flavored comes right back up.
7) This may not be really random, but I want to live in the city. I want to be able to walk to pick up groceries or even walk to get supper. All my life I have lived somewhere where I had to drive 10 to 15 minutes to go to the nearest grocery store. My parents loved living in the middle of nowhere, me not so much; But guess what I married and live about 15 minutes from any type of civilization.
8) I LOVE to host events!! When growing up my parents always let me use our house to have all kinds of parties. New Years Eve, birthday dinners and even after prom parties they were all mild and PG no wild or crazy parties. Not even any booze. 
9) Yes, I know it is very nasty, but I am a nail biter. I have never been able to break the habit no matter what I try I always revert back to biting my nails.
10) I am a people watcher. I am always watching people and sometimes my husband gets on to me for staring. I do not mean to at all, but I am so nosey about what is happening that I forget to be discreet about looking and I just stare at people.
11) 99.9% of the time when I write anything for my blog, facebook or twitter I am in my pajamas, hair has not been brushed, teeth definitely have not been brushed and no one but my amazing husband knows how rough I look while I am behind the computer.
Now that you have read 11 random facts about me I hope that you still have the same wonderful thoughts about me in your cozy little head.

Now time for the 11 questions from Sara for me to answer:

1) What's your favorite Olympic sport?

I would have to say that my favorite Olympic sport hands down would be beach volleyball.

2) Tell us about the best day of your life.

To pick just one day is clearly impossible. I will share some of the best days of my life with you. The day I was born, No I do not remember the day I was born, but it had to be excellent because I started my journey of life. The day I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savor was pretty excellent. Where would I be without him? The day I met my husband; the first time my husband told me he was in love with me; the day we got married and so many more days that have been the best to me. 

3) Vanilla or Chocolate?

Hands down Vanilla.

4) What's your favorite movie and why?

My favorite movie of all time is Steel Magnolias featuring  Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis, Dolly Parton, Daryl Hannah and Julia Roberts. The stars from the movie make the entire movie. If you have never seen this movie it is a MUST see!! I absolutely love this movie I can almost quote every line from this movie.

5) We all want to know, do you prefer boxers or briefs? {On your man, not you.}

Well this question may be different on a day to day basis, but I like both.

6) If you knew you'd never eat again, what would you eat for your last meal?

NEVER EAT AGAIN…that is the worst idea I have ever heard. If I had to choice at this moment my answer would be Japanese food and sushi from Oishii Japanese Grill. I LOVE this restaurant and I am really craving their food right now so that would explain my answer.

7) Tell us about your proudest accomplishment.

My proudest accomplishment would be that I received my Bachelors’ degree in Early Childhood. I have always felt like that is what the Lord wanted me to do ever since I was a little girl. Years later I have completed my degree and that is a HUGE accomplishment. In time I will start my maters program. Keeping my fingers crossed.

8) Link us to your top 3 favorite blogs! And then tell us why you like them.

ONLY 3 that is crazy! But I managed to pick my top 3 favorite blogs!

http://www.allthingsthrifty.com/ (Brooke was on CraftWARS)

9) What do you do to relax?

I watch straight trash on TV (nothing dirty or bad). I will come home and watch any kind of reality TV, Dr. Phil or The Ellen Show. I just simply watch shows on TV that I do not have to think about. I can simply just sit there and look at the screen.

10) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

If I could live anywhere I would have to pick Greece. I have never seen an ugly picture of Greece it looks so relaxing. Plus it would be so fun and exciting just to move and start over somewhere with a new outlook on life, a new culture and new way to live.

11) What is your oldest memory?

The oldest memory that I have would probably be from my grandfather’s funeral.  I remember the viewing and the funeral. Most of all, I remember what I was wearing at the funeral. I wore this light pink dress with flowers. I remember that the dress buttoned all the way down. I wore like a cream colored pair of shoes and white ruffled socks folded over. It was in style then so don’t judge me.

 Elise from That's Comma with a K  

Emily from Dirt and Pearls

Chelsey from  Fancy That!

2) Who is someone you really admire?

3) Favorite actress?

4) If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?

5) What was the last thing you bought?

6) If someone wrote a book about your life, what would they title it?

7) Are you a morning person or a night owl?
