Liebster Award

13 Mar

Hey everyone! I have been MIA again…I really just needed some time to refocus and relax a little. I am in need of some blogging therapy and found out that a follower of mine, Maureen, nominated me for the Liebster Award! Thanks Maureen!!! You rock and made me smile today! 🙂


What is the Liebser Award?

The Liebster Award is for any up and coming blogs that you enjoy reading and a great way to promote them! (Thanks again Maureen, and thank you Melissa as well!)

1. This award is given to new or up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

2. The award is then passed along to other bloggers in the same category to help spread the word and support one another.

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

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

5. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.

6. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.

7. No tag backs (aka, don’t nominate the person who nominated you).

Here goes nothin! 😉

11 Random Facts About Me

1. No matter what mood I am in, music will always remove the fog. That is why I used 4.5 GB out of my 5 GB of data last month…yikes!!! Pandora and Songza you’re killin me 😉

2. I love every type of music. Country, rock (classic, heavy, contemporary), rap, alternative, and just about everything in between!

3. I absolutely hate my neck touched. I will immediately drop to the ground if it is.

4. I sleep with my thermometer under my pillow. Which also means I wake up at 5 AM daily to temp. It is a total pain but I am amazed at how well I know my body because of this.

5. I am left handed. It’s crazy the amount of people who notice this about me as I am writing or eating.  

6. I also make a wish whenever I see 11:11. I totally nodded my head when I read that of your’s Maureen because I do the same. I am incredibly superstitious. I also will not say the words C-O-L-D or F-L-U during the winter months…

7. I am not a fan of onions. 

8. I have a monster in my Tupperware cupboard. & he keeps messing it up on me!

9. I love anything that has the words: ice cream, coconut, pumpkin, dark chocolate, mint, and/or peanut butter. 

10. I can’t jump in a pool without plugging my nose. Never have been able to. 

11. I own a telescope. Growing up I wanted to be an astronomer. Hopefully this summer we can dust it off again!

Maureen’s Questions:

1. What is your ideal day of eats? My days typically start off with my steel cut oatmeal or some eggs cooked in coconut oil, then I snack on some greek yogurt or an orange, for lunch I usually make a sandwich, a wrap, or have leftovers, and I try to make new recipes for dinner time each week! It’s a really great day if I fit in some ice cream with cookie butter!!

2. What is your favorite type of exercise? Running. But I also have really found a love for other kinds as well but running will always be at the top!

3. If you met a genie and was granted 3 wishes, what would they be? 1) a baby. 2) no such thing as money… 3) or death.

4. What is your favorite season, and why? It all depends when you ask. Right now it’d be summer! But at the end of summer I’d say fall.


5. What is your favorite television show? This is a tie between One Tree Hill and Vampire Diaries. If you’ve never watched either, do it!!! (…… won’t regret it!!!)


6. Have you ever met a celebrity? My Darkest Days (twice!)


7. What is your favorite vacation spot? Mexico. David and I both said we had no desire to go there UNTIL we went to Riviera Maya for our honeymoon and we were hooked! It’s gorgeous, the tropical drinks are to die for, and the people are so nice!

On our honeymoon before weight loss

8. If you could live in any time period in history, what would it be, and why? Probably in the future. I want to know what it has to hold and what changes have been made in the world. 

9. Describe your first date. I’ll be honest, I can’t remember…is that bad??

    I’m left-handed too! Maybe being superstitious has to do with us being lefties more attuned to the creative side of the brain 😉 I also LOVE One Tree Hill!
