I'd like to thank the academy for this award!

A few weeks back, I had a comment on a post from someone that said they were going to nominate me for a Liebster Award. My first thought was "Hmm, I wonder if it's real?". My second thought was,"Oh hell yeah! Praise me!" As I excitedly told Brad, his reaction was "Make sure it's not a scam". *Sigh* I thought to myself "Oh, wish you would have told me before I gave out our bank routing number, my soc number and my bike lock code." Of course I had to research the shit out of this so I didn't get scammed, mocked, hacked or whatever. And it's real.

So what is a Liebster Award? It is given by other bloggers to new and/or "Up and coming" bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The blogger nominated has to then post 11 random facts about themselves, answer 11 questions posed by the person who nominated you, create you own 11 questions and pass the honor to another 11 bloggers. Whew, that's a lot of 11's. Then you go back to the nominators page and tell them about it. And no tag backs. So thank you Chantal of Adventures in Hickey Land!! The last thing I won was a mini fridge in college! (Not entirely true, but it's nice dramatic effect).

My 11 Random Facts
1)I used to tell my friends in grade school that I had a secret twin sister and brought in two of the same baby picture of myself to prove it. But I added a marker mole on my twin.
2) I am too white to be considered Native American and too Native American to be considered white, in some people's eyes.
3) Completely in love with Bill Murray and have been my entire life. When I was three, I told my mom I was going to buy lingerie because Bill would like it. True story.
4)Hippies REAAAAALY annoy me.
5) When I was a child, a hooker told me I must be smart. I'll tell the full story in another post.
6)I've worn my hair in a ponytail since the 5th grade.
7) I used to writer some really morbid things when I was a child. My parents once asked "What is the matter with you?". I had an undiagnosed case of awesome, which they didn't understand.
8) I am a huge procrastinator.
9) I have nightmares that I haven't been to class all semester and the final is tomorrow. Even though I graduated college five years ago.
10) Weird, honeycomb shaped things scare the living daylights out of me. Like the inside of a sunflower or housework.
11) Hardcore hiphop is my favorite. Luda would be either proud or terrified.
Questions for me from Chantal at Adventures in Hickey Land:
Who was the very first blogger you started reading regularly?
I have to admit, I didn't really read blogs before I started my own. So no one I guess.

Last great book you read?
"The Hunger Games" trilogy. Peeta's so dreamy.

What magazines (if any) do you just have to read every month?
Gossip magazines! I used to buy 4 every week for a long time. But then I got real cheap and starting going and reading them for free at Barnes and Noble.

Best parenting or marriage advice you've ever received?
"You should elope". Courtesy of half of my family. Do you think I listened? Of course not. Now I loved my wedding, but I should've taken the money and ran. An extra $25,000 (ish) in the bank would've been awfully nice to contribute to a house down payment or my inevitable tummy tuck.

Are you a couponer? If so, extreme or newbie?
Hell no. I got super excited when it first became a big deal and I tried it.  I must suck at it, because I never really saved all that much money.

If you could pick any other place in the world to move to, where would it be?
The 50 yard line of Lambeau Field. I would literally live in a pup tent there. For those of you who don't know what that is, it's the stadium where the Green Bay Packers play. And if you didn't know that, please stop reading this and firmly pull my foot from out of your ass.

Who was your first follower on your blog (if you know!)?
I believe it was a super lovely lady I work with named Wiener.

What is your favorite color combination?
Green and gold. I know, it's redundant. "She loves the Packers, we know this." Oh, do you? I don't think anyone understands the magnitude of my love for them. It even scares some people. 

Which of your Pinterest boards (if you have one) has to most pins?
I'll Get Healthy...Tomorrow

All time favorite DIY project you've seen on Pinterest (or elsewhere)?
I'm not really what you would call a "Do it yourself" person. I'm more of a "GSTDIFY" or "Get someone to do it for you" kind of gal.

Where is your "happy place"?
I'm not going to do, what you all think I'm going to do and say Lambeau Field. Ok, I will say it. I bet your happy place doesn't smell like brats and stale beer. My other happy place is your mom's house. Ohhh, sorry, my inner teenage boy just came out.

11 Questions for my nominees:
When did you realize you were a grown up?
What is the one thing you would be glad to get rid of?
Favorite movie as a child?
Worst or most annoying habit?
What is something you look forward to every day?
Name one thing about you that no one really knows.
What is the average time you get up in the morning?
If you could be one famous person for a week, who would it be and why?
What is your biggest pet peeve?
What is the most common word you misspell?
Do you think asking two part questions above will suffice in me not asking a final question?

And there you have it! Now the only super bad part on my, is that I don't have any blogs at this moment that I could nominate. Why? Because I suck. I promise I will nose around other people's blogs so I can see who I want to nominate and will report back as soon as I can!

  1. BA ha ha! Hippies really ARE annoying!

    I've seen that aversion to honeycomb shaped stuff syndrome and images to test whether you have the syndrome. Tricho-something. Anyway, I can never relive it again because I'm pretty sure watching it again might make me die.

    Saw you on Mom Bloggers Club and now off to follow your ass.
