Liebster Award

I went back to New Mexico for a really quick weekend trip and had a blast! {I even got some of my Summer-to-do list things done. Previous post found here. I was so pleasantly surprised to find out when I turned on my computer that I was nominated for the Liebster Award by the beautiful Caitlin {at} A Day in the Life

The award is given to upcoming bloggers with less than 200 followers. Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome!

So here is how it works:

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.

2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you and create 11 questions for the bloggers you've tagged.

3. Choose up to 11 bloggers and link them in your post.

4. Go to their page and tell them.

5. No tag backs.

Here are my 11 things:

1. I don't like my arms

2. I have never had a carbonated beverage. Never a soda, beer, or sip of champagne. 

3. I was a competitive swimming in high school.

4. I love pro football and can't wait for the season to start!

5. I do wish I was rich.

6. I am frugal.

7. I pretend to be more creative than I really am.

8. I love organizing, party planning, and making lists.

9. I have never dyed my hair.

10. I actually was one of the first 1000 people to join Pinterest.

11. My OCD is wondering why 11 things, 11 questions, and 11 people and not 10.

Here are my questions:

1. What do you do to relax?
Exercise, blog, eat chocolate, read, or watch tv. 

2. What are some of your hobbies?
I guess that would be reading, blogging, pro football {like watching it and fantasy football and all that jazz}, and skiing.

3. If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take 3 things with you, what would you take?
Sunglasses, my computer {if I can get wifi there}, and Kevin. Runners up: Sunscreen and chocolate.

4. What is your greatest accomplishment thus far?
Getting married to Kevin.

5. What was your favorite subject in school and why?
In high school it was Government/Econ because I had the best teacher I have ever had.
In college my favorite subject was nursing {yes I know that is not a subject, but most of those classes were fun}

6. How would you describe your style?
You know those pictures like this:

That is how my style is. I think it looks classic, colorful, and conservative {but still sexy}. But really it is {sadly} probably closer to whatever is clean and in my closet. I need more clothes--I never have anything to wear.

7. If you could have any special talent {that you don't already have}, what would it be?
The ability to eat anything without getting fat. {isn't that every girls dream?} 

8. If you won the lottery, what would you spend the money on?
My dream home! And everything in it... 

9. Name three people who have influenced you the most and why.
First off Kevin has influenced me in so many ways. He is always my biggest supporter.

My mom and dad have also been very influential and are super amazing parents. My mom stayed at home and worked hard to raise us. My dad has worked hard to support us and had to put up with all girls in the house. Enough said.

10. What got you started in blogging?
I have been a long time reader of blogs. I still am a better reader of blogs than a writer. {seriously. everyone i follow. yes I read all of your posts.} Then I got married and decided to start my own...remember and document my new life. It is all so new, and I still have so much to learn.

11. What is your favorite holiday and why?
I would say Christmas. I love the lights, the presents, the cheer, the music, the smell of the yummy cookies, the weather, everything. 

So thanks for that Caitlin! Here are my choices. A lot of you that I would mention are way too popular!
