Liebster Award!

Hi all! I've been nominated for the Liebster Award(!) by the wonderful Kayla from Green Mountain Couple. This is incredibly exciting for me because I am a nerd and I care about these things. (Don't judge -- you know you do, too!)

My liebster award

My 11 Facts
1. I was born with a club foot and had to have surgery as a baby. (Google it. Freaky.)
2. I am ambidextrous. But I mainly write and eat with  my left and do everything else with my right.
3. The smell of peanut butter makes me gag.
4. I have known my boyfriend literally for my entire life. (So cute, right?)
5. I used to take Lexapro for my anxiety.
6. I plan everything.
7. I average reading about 5 books a month, sometimes more. (This month I'm closing in on 10.)
8. I totally regret chopping all my hair off. It's still a sore subject.
9. I have house fever!
10. I will not leave the house without wearing mascara. My mother gave me her lovely non-existent eyelashes.
11. I have zero patience. This isn't random if you know me, and I may have mentioned here before, but seriously. Temper-tantrum city.

Now I will answer the questions Kayla asked her nominees:

1. Why did you start Blogging?
I needed an outlet. My job wasn't really fulfilling, so I started this. I have a new job now, but I don't plan on leaving the blog behind. Ever.
2. How long have you been Blogging?
On-and-off (mostly off) since 2010. Consistently since January.
3. What is your opinion on "Prepping"?
I'm not really sure what this means. I'm a prepper in general, but if you mean for blogging, not so much.
4. How many states have you been to/in?
Eighteen. And I had to sing the state song to count them.
5. Do you have and tattoos? If yes, of what?
No, but I want one.
6. Favorite color?
Red and yellow.
7. Favorite Holiday?
Thanksgiving. Hands down. The whole season from Thanksgiving to Christmas is THE BEST.
8. Favorite Board Game?
 9. How many siblings do you have? If you do, are you Oldest, Middle or Youngest?
Technically I'm an only child. I do have three step-siblings, and I'm the youngest. I've never lived with any of them.
10. Have you ever broken a bone?
Never. But I was in a cast as a baby because of the foot surgery.
11.  Ultimate Goal for 2013?
Live more in the moment and stop waiting for things. This is more of a day by day goal, but I'd like to feel like I accomplished it by the end of the year.

I am nominating the following blogs:

Jayme at Young Mum's Guide to Survival
Cody at Catching Cody K
Krystle at Life Revolves Around Them
Taylor at Confessions of a Busy Busy Bee
Lindsey at Life on Countryside
Chloe at All That Good Stuff
Courtney at Marriage With a Baby Carriage
Kelly at Kelly Elizabeth

The 11 questions I'm proposing are:

1. What is your goal with your blog?
2. What is something you are passionate about other than blogging?
3. What is one CD you can listen to over and over again and not get tired of?
4. Do you wear contacts and/or glasses? If yes, which do you prefer?
5. What's your favorite way to relax?
6. What is your biggest pet peeve?
7. Would you rather be hot or cold? Why?
8. Do you have a vice? What is it?
9. What is the best blogging advice you've ever received?
10. If you could hang out with one living celebrity for a day who would it be and what would you do?
11. What attracts you to a person? (Male or female, not necessarily a significant other.)

So I have to ask about the club foot. Did you have the surgery, or do the casting method with the tendon surgery? My daughter who is 3 was born with a club foot, and we did the casting.

Congrats on the award!
