A Liebster Award!!! Me???

First off, don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY!!

Last week a fellow blogger nominated me for the Liebster Award. I had seen a few blog posts about it but never really knew what it was. Nor, of course, thought I would be on anyone's mind about a blogging award. But apparently I was!!!


Cortney from The Little Things...(and Vodka) contacted me last week to let me know she had nominated me. I just found Cortney not too long ago but her blog name definitely caught my attention. The Liebster Award is a a recognition of small blogs. It's a blogger to blogger award and there are a lot of rules involved. I'm going to copy right from Cortney's page to make sure I get it right. lol.

Here's how the Liebster Award works:

Acknowledge the blog that nominated you (Thanks, Cortney!!)
Tell 11 facts about yourself
Answer the 11 questions the nominating blogger created
List 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers that you believe deserve some recognition
Post 11 questions for them to answer
Notify them that they've been nominated
You can't nominate the blog that nominated you

So...without further ado...

11 Facts about Little Ole Me!!
1. My husband chased me for a year before I would finally give him a chance. All it took was a date with another chick. :)

2. I live in the house that I was raised in. When I was 10 we moved out and my parents rented it out. I have always wanted to move back and raise my own children here.

3. I'm a shower singer and a mirror model. One day I will be famous. :)

4. I'm horribly afraid of spiders. Horribly...it's a problem. One time I wouldn't leave my basement because there was a spider by the stairs. I stayed there for over an hour until someone came home and killed it.

5. I was a dancer for 15 years. No not exotic. Yet...but times sure are getting tough!!

6. Sometimes I worry that I might be turning into an alcoholic. But then I have another drink and laugh at how stupid that sounds.

7. I love teaching, but I think a lot about changing professions. Not sure what I could do, however. I have ADHD and could never work in a cubicle and expect not to just blog all day.

8. I have Final Destination brain. I will die of something out of this world unbelievable. Like I'll fly off a roller coaster, or get sucked out of an airplane toilet. I constantly have horrible images of things that may will happen to me going through my brain.

9. I know more about sports (football and baseball) than most guys. Mike told me to say this. lol.

10. My husband pretty much does all the girly things in the relationship; cooks, cleans, does laundry. I help when I can but he works nights so he does it while I'm gone during the day.

11. I get along with my in-laws almost better than my own mother. lol. Mom's very old fashioned and I've always been a little "unique". She freaked when my brother got his tongue pierced. Imagine what she thought when I gauged my ears, died my hair dark, pierced my nose, and got my first tattoo?? The in-laws are a little more "accepting". Plus they get drunk and have a good time. Mom's a "one and doner".


11 Questions from Cortney
1. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? Truth. I don't really eat ice cream. Maybe if we have cake for a birthday or Mike's mom buys it to go with a dessert she made, but I could really go without. If I had to choose, however, it would be the vanilla chocolate soft serve twist in a sugar cone. :)

2. Channing Tatum or Bradley Cooper? Hmmm. I'd screw Channing Tatum in a heartbeat. Like, nasty, hot, sweaty, porn star sex. I mean, have you seen the "Pony" solo in Magic Mike?? Go ahead...take your computer somewhere you can be alone and have a moment. We've all done it...


...You're welcome.
However.....If we were playing "Sex, Marry, Throw off a cliff" I'd marry Bradley Cooper. He's hot, funny, seems pretty sweet and...he speaks french...I know...

3. Your all time FAVORITE quote? "Hey hoe, how you doin'? Where you been? Prolly doin' hoe stuff 'cause there you hoe again."

4. If we were stranded on an island, what are three things that we'd most definitely need? We'd only need 2 things, a chaser and some vodka. 

5. What's one tip you could give about blogging? Take the time to "network". I love finding new blogs to check out, but you can't do that without looking around. Don't expect for people to just fall into your blog without working for it. Find blogs you like and leave them sincere personal messages that have meaning. Actually read what they have to say rather than just telling them to follow you back.

6. What's on your summer bucket list? I would really like to lose a few more inches. I won't say pounds because I really don't care what the scale says. I have gotten a lot of compliments in the last few days so I hope it gives me the motivation to keep going. 

7. Do you have any funny/strange/gross/amazing hidden talents? Ask Mike *wink* haha. Umm, my thumbs are double-jointed so I can bend it back all the way to touch my wrist. I'm also an amazing armpit farter!!

8. What's your biggest fear? Another Prohibition.

9. Besides mine (wink), who's blog do you read the moment you wake up? haha. Besides you...I usually just go down the list in my Bloglovin' feed.

10. What's your biggest pet peeve? When people don't text me back. Grrrr.

11. I'm throwing a party. What are you bringing? Myself!! I AM the party!!! Haha. This is easy. Vodka and buffalo chicken dip. Yummmm!!
