{An Award for Me?? Wow!}

Hi Everyone!  I was very honored when the lady with the super cute "lobster" J Crew Sweater @ Lobster Meets Peach  passed her Liebster Award along to ME.  Liebster, in German, means endearing, valued, and lovely. The award acknowledges up and coming bloggers for outstanding accomplishments within design that is presented on their blog.

Here are the rules for accepting the award:
1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, and then
create 11 new questions for the chosen bloggers.
3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5. No tag backs.

11 Random Facts about Myself
1.  I think my first random fact is I am confused about the random facts and the questions. . . I am not sure if I am supposed to answer the questions, or post 11 facts, or both . . .Perhaps my 2. Random Fact I am challenged and not a very good direction follower! But I am better than that! 

So here it goes!
1.  I like to have a $200 leather handbag and wear a $5 White Hanes T-Shirt. (Strange, I know.)
2.  I met my husband on a blind date. (I would've married him that night.)
3.  I love to smile.  I smile all day everyday. (Its good for your soul.)
4.  I love photos of dogs, dog decor, and the idea of having a dog, but I am not a dog-lover. Refuse to own one. (I know that makes me a lousy person.)
5.  I really think salt water runs through my veins. (Tears come when I pack up from the beach.)
6.  Its my hearts desire to own LL Bean Boots, a canoe, and a Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
7.  I would NEVER go back to high school. (You know how you hear people say that?  That's just Cray-Cray.)
8.  I like rap music. (There I said it. . . are you happy?)
9.  I think its always good to "sleep on it".  (Things never seem as intense the next day.)
10.  I don't have a problem with leaving the house with no make-up. (or hair fixed for that matter.)
11.  I could drive around and look at old homes all day.  I love real estate.

And to answer a few questions from her blog and some I made up on my own. . . 

1.  Do you like to go out or stay home on Friday Night?  Mmmm?  I am funny/strange.  I  am not real social.  I am, but not like a "jet setter".  I love to catch a movie and sit in a coffee shop. I am very content to be at home also.

2.  Do you have any pet peeves?  Gossip. 

3.  What is your favorite dessert?  Carrot Cake because it reminds me of my Grandma Reatha.  Chocolate Chip Cookies because my kids say that is the color of my hair.

4.  Who do I admire?  People that love the Lord and pray fervently.  People that spend more time serving others than they spend serving themselves.  People that have money. . . but you would never know it.

5.  Would you ever bungee jump?  No.  I am scared of heights.

6.  What is your favorite blog?  She is extremely motivating.  She inspires me to be more creative and fun with my kiddos.  Where does she get all those ideas???  Really???

7.  Do you like to take naps?  Yes.

8.  Drink of choice?  Sweet Tea.

9.  If you could snap your fingers. . .my laundry would be done & my eyebrows would stay perfectly manicured (Legs too!).

10.  If you could change anything. . . I might slow down time a little.

11.  Would you rather have a house keeper or a chef?  Chef. Please. (Can he/she start now?  I need a snack).

Well I think that is way enough about me!!!  Thank you so much for nominating my blog!  I enjoy blogging.  I am not a big TV watcher, so blogging is just easy for me.  I love getting to know people from all over the world.

 Here are my eleven blogs, and you ladies have complete freedom! 
Do the 11 random facts, and feel free to answer the same or different questions! Just have fun with it! And of course spread the LOVE with 11 bloggers of your choice!

Oops! I am choosing 12 (Rule Breaker!)

Choosing 11 (12!!) new blogs to pass the Liebster award to was fun because I know these ladies personally! These bloggers have a lot to offer and are very talented people who would love to show you their little slice of the pie in this world!  Thank you for spending a bit of your day with me!  Much LOVE to you all!

Thank you again Mrs. Peach! Lily and I like to tune in daily to see what B is up to!
