Liebster Award


First of all, a warm thank you to Tonya from The Little Slice for nominating me and this blog for the Liebster Award!  Your sweet comment made my day! :)

The Liebster Award Rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
2. Display the Liebster logo on your blog.
3. Answer the questions the award giver asked you.
4. List 11 facts about yourself.
5. Pay it forward and list 11 blogs you want to nominate and ask them 11 questions.

Questions Tonya Asked Me:
1. If you were a ruler/president/prime minister of your country, what would be your number one task to tackle?
I'd work towards making more towns and cities pedestrian friendly so that less people would feel the need to drive cars.
2. What was  your last dream about?
Last night I was dreaming that I was going on vacation but had packed nothing and had no time to go back in to my house to get anything so I just had to go with myself.  It was so stressful!  (Also it miiiight be indicating that I should start packing for something...)
3. If you could go back in time to change one thing what would it be?
I wish I had dyed my hair blue as a teenager like I wanted to.
4. If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
I think it would be fun to live either in the UK or San Francisco.
5. Are you a hat person?
Not really.  I have a couple of hats that I don't hate but I don't usually like squishing my hair.  Ha ha!
6. What was the last thing you recorded on T.V.?
I don't remember because I haven't done that in two years.  I don't have cable and actually pretty much only watch YouTube with the occasional dvd thrown in.
7. What is the best food recipe you've made or tried from someone else?
The macaroni and cheese recipe that my mom taught me is the best.  It's the best macaroni and cheese and it's the best recipe in general.  That is just a fact.
8. Can you do 10 revolutions of a hula hoop?
I can do way more than 10!  I have awesome hula hooping skills.
9. Do you enjoy a good mess or are you a everything-has-to-be-in-its-place kind of person?
I might be a mess lover... I keep my kitchen obsessively put together.  If a thing has a home I usually put it back most of the time but I have piles of books and knitting all over the place and I can rarely see the surface of my desk.
10. Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
Mila Kunis.  Love her.
11. What keeps you hooked on blogging?
This blog has only been around for about 4 months but in those months I've had a really good time learning a ton about how this all works.  Aside from that, I love that I've been able to have conversations with people that I never would have interacted with otherwise.  The internet is so awesome!

11 Facts About Me
1. I don't like taking naps.
2. I over-pack for all vacations.
3. I used to be an elementary school teacher.  I taught 1st grade and 5th grade and liked them both equally.
4. At least 50 percent of what flows through my veins is coffee.
5. My favorite movie is Practical Magic with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman.  I have probably watched it 9 billion times.
6. I used to sneak Stephen King books home from the library when I was a kid and my mother would take them away from me because they were scary.  So I know part of lots of his books and am still terrified because I don't know if they ever get resolved.
7. I can knit and sew but I don't know how to crochet.
8. I planned my wedding in exactly 3 months and nothing went wrong.
9. I have a green thumb when it comes to outdoor gardening but I find that it is next to impossible for me to keep house plants alive.
10. My dream pet is a jowly gray cat.  I would also like a skinny gray cat.  And a dog.  And all the farm animals.
11. I am slightly less of a night owl than I was when I was younger but I am still not a morning person and probably never will be.
