Liebster Blog Award

This past weekend I got a comment from someone saying that they liked my blog and nominated me for some blog award. I honestly thought it was spam or something where you have to pay money, because my blog is so new and Im just starting out slow and getting a feel for blogging. Turns out the Liebster Award is really cool for bloggers with under 200 followers to be recognized and meet other bloggers. Its more like a tag than an "award", but still really awesome!

I am so thankful and honored that Courtney from Highstreet Highlight nominated me and likes where I'm going with my blog. Thank you Courtney!

I looked up the Liebster Award and there are actually many different ones going around with little differences on the numbers but the one I am doing has these rules:

  • Link back to the person that nominated you
  • each nominee must list 11 random facts about themselves 
  • then answer the 11 questions provided by the person who nominated them
  • nominate 11 bloggers with 200 followers or less and ask them 11 questions of your own
  • let the nominees know you nominated them 

11 Random Facts About Me:

     1. I love everything Disney. For the past 3 years I would go to Disneyland at least once a      

         month (not anymore my pass
     2. I follow/read many mom blogs, even though Im not a mom.
     3. In high school I took aerobics and dance to get out of running. Now I love to run.
     4. I love accents. I guess I talk differently then others from California because Ive been 
         asked many times where Im from when Im in my home state. Some say I sound  
         southern, others say somewhere in Europe. lol
     5. I am terrified of birds. 
     6. Hockey and Football are my favorite sports to watch.
     7. My husband proposed to me near the castle at Disneyland.
     8. Im a night owl. I don't do mornings very well.
     9. I love scary stuff like horror films and haunted mazes/houses and Halloween.
     10. I love to laugh and make others laugh.
     11. Chocolate is my weakness. 

11 Questions From Courtney:
  1. What is your favorite candle scent?  My favorite candle scent is cinnamon or apple. I really like the scent pumpkin apple from Bath and Body Works right now.  
  2. Where are all the places you have travelled to and which was your favorite? I just got back from (Green Bay) Wisconsin and Minnesota, I have also been to Las Vegas, Orlando,FL, New York, Boston,MA, San Francisco, and many places in Souther California. Also Mexico when I was young. They all were amazing, but my favorite would have to be New York.
  3.  What’s something you know you do differently than most people? The only thing I can think of is something my sister made fun of me for... lol... I eat nachos with a fork. I actually eat a lot of things with a fork and not with my hands. 
  4. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? I would move to Green Bay, WI or a small town in Minnesota. I loved it there and I think it would be a nice place to raise a family, but I don't know about their winters. If I had to pick somewhere outside of the USA I would choose Australia. It looks amazing and I think it would be fun to live there.
  5. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones? Thats a tough one. I think I would choose to never be able to make new memories because I want to remember what has happened in my life and can be filled in on the new stuff. I could be like Drew Barrymore's character from 50 1st Dates. 
  6. Your idea of the perfect breakfast? I should probably pick something healthy, but chocolate chip pancakes sound really great. 
  7. What would you do for a Klondike bar? Is it bad if I say I don't know if I would do anything. I don't really like hard outside then ice-cream. 
  8. Do you have anything hanging on your walls? If so, what? The only thing I have thats actually hanging on the wall is a painting I got at Disneyland, everything else is leaning on the wall.
  9. What are you sitting on right now? Im sitting on the most uncomfortable chair ever in front of my computer.
  10. What are you currently reading? I am reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
  11.  What is your lucky/favorite number and why? My favorite number has always been 55. Im pretty sure I picked it because it was on my sweater from Disneyland (the year it opened) when I was little and didn't have a favorite number, so I just chose that. Its still my favorite number.
