Liebster Award

Angela at Living Pretty nominated me for a Liebster Award, and I am so grateful! This is my second time being cool! Anyway, here a little more about the Liebster Award.

The Liebster Award is given to new or up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. It's a great way to find new and noteworthy blogs.

The Rules:

1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.

2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, and then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
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:

1. My favorite color is blue, but if I were a color I'd be pink. Weird, I know.
2. I have 3 brothers, 2 sisters, 4 neices, 4 nephews, and 1 more nephew on the way!
3. Real Housewives of [Insert City] is my not-so-guilty pleasure
4. My family watches the movie National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation every year on Christmas Eve
5. The Justin Bieber songs on my iPod don't belong to me (they belong to my husband)
6. I've been married 1 year, but lived with my husband for 5.5 years
7. I love to watch Sex and the City reruns even though I've seen them all a thousand times.
8. I am a neat freak. It's almost like a sickness.
9. I am planning on running 2 half marathons in 2013.
10. Napa is my favorite place in the world. It makes me sick that I don't live there. One day...
11. My husband's job has made me wine snob. I'm kind of annoying to drink with now. (He's a country club manager)

Angela's Questions:

1. Fav hair product. Aveda Smooth Infusion Prep Style Smoother.

2. Most embarrassing moment. Asking my now husband what the black lines on the back windshield of my car were for. (we were on our 3rd date, I'm surprised he stuck around)

3. Fav Christmas tradition. Going to my dad's house on Christmas Eve.

4. Go to breakfast meal. Grapes, sliced strawberries, and a sliced banana. I love the flavor combo.

5. Inspiring quotation. If I find in myself desires which mothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explantion is that I was made for another world. --C.S. Lewis

6. Something unexpected that you have discovered about blogging. Having followers doesn't necessarily equal readership. Thanks for sharing that with me, Niki!

7. Something you just realized or learned that you probably should have known. This will sound so weird, but I recently found out that Ronnie Milsap was blind. I never knew.

8. Comfort food. Pizza. I freaking love it.

9. Book recommendations. Goodnight Nobody by Jennifer Weiner.

10. Greatest compliment that you have ever received. On my wedding day, we were taking pictures in downtown Seaside, Florida and a little girl said, "look Mommy there's a princess." Seriously, the best compliment ever. Who doesn't want to be a princess?!

11. Morning Person or night Owl? Funny you should ask. I used to be night owl, but as I get older I'm becoming more of a morning person. I can no longer sleep in like I used to.

Questions for my nominees:  
1. What is your fav nail polish color?
2. How did you come up with the name of your blog??
3. What do you love most about blogging?
4. Do you prefer coffe or tea? 5. What are you most excited for in 2013?
6. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
