Liebster Award Nomination

21 January 2013

Hello All! I'm happy to announce that Angela of Selfless Ambition recently nominated me for the Liebster Award! Thank you so much for the nomination, Angela!! For those of you who don't know, the Liebster Award is an award given to up and coming bloggers with 200 followers or less. It's a fantastic way to promote your blog and meet new bloggers.

When you are nominated for the Leibster Awards there are a few simple rules you must follow.

Here are the rules:
  1. Post 11 random facts about yourself.
  2. Answer the 11 questions the nominator(s) asked.
  3. Nominee should come up with 11 new nominees and 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
  4. Nominees should have less than 200 followers and should link back to you on their Liebster blog post.
Here are 11 random facts about me:
  1. I am extremely, extremely shy which many people interpret as being bitchy.
  2. I'm a geek and I'm totally ok with that!
  3. I absolutely hate to cook; I find no joy in it and do it out of necessity.
  4. I love to read and would much rather be at home with my face in a book than interacting with   people.
  5. I can live in heels, too bad I'm a teacher and have to stand on my feet all day.
  6. I can't resist a sale. Therefore, I'm trying really, really hard to stay away from malls.
  7. I'm a die hard Giants fan, which surprises people since I'm such a girlie-girl. You can thank my husband for that!
  8. I am terrified of spiders to the point where I may start to cry.
  9. I'm extremely anal and a total neat freak!!   
  10. I don't like mean-spirited people.
  11. I like to begin and end my day with a cup of tea.

Here are Angela's questions and my answers:
  1. If you were stranded on a deserted island with 1 other person, who would you want that person to be & why? My husband, of course, because I couldn't live without him! He can always put a smile on my face.
  2. What is your best memory from the past 12 months? Finding a job that I truly love going to everyday.
  3. Your fave movie? There are so many!! I can't narrow down to just one: Steel Magnolias, The Shawshank Redemption, Pretty Woman, Goodfellas, Murder in the First, Forrest Gump
  4. Your fave candy bar? I'm not really big on candy, but Snickers would be my pick.
  5. Name 1 person in your life that has influenced you the most. My husband and my father. My husband is my high school sweetheart so I've known him half my life. He's my number one supporter. I'm also a total daddy's girl, I've always looked up to my dad.
  6. What is your take on J.Crew? Love it & shop there often OR cute but way overpriced? Love it, my absolute favorite store!! Very overpriced but worth it, in my opinion.
  7. If you could have anyone design your home (and money was no object), who would you choose? I honestly don't think I would want anyone to design my home. There are certain things that I find joy in doing on my own, decorating my home would be one of them.
  8. If you could be on any reality show, what would it be?  I hate reality tv!! But probably So You Think You Can Dance?
  9. Describe your ideal vacation.  Italy for the food and the shopping!! My dream vacation!!
  10. What is your fave song? An oldie but goodie: Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers
  11. What is your middle name? Don't have one.
