Liebster Award!

Thank you for nominating me Christina! I'm super excited, and humbled! People other than my mom read my blog! Yay!

The Rules
1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
3. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 11 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.
5. Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award.
6. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.

1. I am the oldest of 5 kids. Two girls and three boys. 
2. I had 5 majors in college before deciding on Mass Communication.
3. I HATE painting my fingernails. I'm a nail biter, so it's tricky anyway :)
4. I am addicted to designer purses. I got a Louis for Christmas, and he's my new bff.
5. My daughter got her first name while I was high on morphine. I was passing a kidney stone 20 weeks pregnant, and my husband decided then was a good time to name her. 
6. I'm the traitor in my family. I come from a long line of Air Force, and married the Army. Oops...
7. I should've been an adult in the '50's. I'm a bake from scratch, wear my pearls while vacuuming kinda girl.
8. I'm a Libra so I'm kinda vain. I love pictures of myself, and when I was little I'd stare at myself in the mirror. Motherhood had humbled me.
9. I'm a borderline hoarder. I keep all kinds of crap. I don't keep trash or anything, but things like birthday or Christmas cards don't usually end up in the trash like they should. My husband LOVES that about me. Haha
10. I'm secretly 4 years old. I find Laffy Taffy jokes hilarious, love to color with my daughter, and Disney and I are tight. 
11. I'm a preschool teacher. Oh yeah, the Mass Comm. degree? I'm totally using it while singing Itsy Bitsy Spider for the bazillionth time to 3 year olds. I do truly have the best job ever.  
{1} What is your most embarrassing moment?
    This happened recently actually! We were out on date night with my sister and Scooter, and I had had 3 sips of a margarita. Nothing serious, and I barely drink anyway, so seriously, I was fine. But I got up out of my seat to whisper something to my sister across the table, and my seat fell back behind me. I didn't know this, and when I went to go sit back down, I busted my ass in front of the entire bar. Needless to say, I was watched like a hawk when we left. I would never drink and drive btw. 
{2} Look to your right. What are five things that you see?
      Baby toys, baby toys, baby toys, baby toys, and the fireplace. Seriously, my house is a freaking baby toy disaster. I'll get specific though: Sit-N-Spin, buggy (shopping cart to you non-southerners), soccer ball, and eleventy million books.
{3} What was the last thing you ate?
     Grilled chicken, lemon pepper broccoli, and sauteed potatoes with onions and Parmesan cheese.  And a funfetti sugar cookie.
{4} What is your best childhood memory?
      When I was a kid, we had a paper route that we did with my mom after school. It was a driving one, not a bike one, that took about 3 hours. It was how my mom was able to be a SAHM and still help support our family. It was awesome. We had the best subscribers who left us candy in their paper boxes, and I could throw a paper hundreds of feet and get it on the front porch, or get it in the paper box without my mom having to stop the car. I should've played softball haha
{5} What is your favorite season and why?
    Fall! For one, my birthday is in the fall. And two, the weather. It's warmish during the day, but chilly at night. It's jeans and tshirt kind of weather. And its the most beautiful then too. Everything is turning colors. Love it.
{6} What was the last book that you read? Did you like it?
      Haha. Mr. Brown Can Moo. Can You? By. Dr. Seuss. And yeah, I liked it ok. The bebe loves it.
{7} When did you start blogging and why?
      I started blogging in August 2011 b/c I was pregnant. We're down her in GA/AL and our families are in NC, so it was a way for them to be a part of the pregnancy while being so far away.
{8} How many siblings do you have?
     4. 1 sister and 3 brothers.
{9} What is your favorite piece of technology?
      Eh. I could live without technology really, but probably my cell phone. I can talk to the people I love, and still Google things that need to be Googled.
{10} Do you have a favorite family recipe?
        Oh Lord this is a tough one! I'm from the south, so pretty much everything is a deliciously cherished family recipe! But probably my mom's sauteed mushrooms and onions. The secret is a stick of butter. Yes, an entire stick. It's amazing.
{11} What type of car do you drive?
       A grey Kia Sportage. It's not a mini-van, but one day :)
1. Where did you grow up?
2. When and why did you start blogging?
3. If you could be any Disney princess, which one would you be and why?
4. Biggest pet peeve(s)?
5. What is one of your favorite childhood memories?
6. Are you a greens or blues person?
7. Pretend you're 5 again. What do you want to be when you grow up?
8. How many siblings do you have? 
9. Are you hot natured or cold natured? Elaborate.
10.  Do you work? If so, doing what? If not, Lucky :)
11. What is one of your favorite blogs to follow? Big or small.

Brook at the Kincaids 
Heather at The Fox Family 
Tammy at Boston Mom 
Carmela at Blissfully Loved

And that's all I have! I know it isn't eleven, but these are my favorite girls to read that have less than 200 followers. I'm kinda picky about who I read.... But I hope they have as much fun with this as I did, and maybe they have some fabulous ladies to recommend as well! And I want to thank Christina again for nominating me! I was beyond thrilled and excited to get her email. Be sure to check her blog out as well!
