Award Winner

I was nominated again for the Liebster Award by Amanda at Bringing up Allie. The award is given to upcoming bloggers with less than 200 followers. Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome! Thank you girl! You're so sweet!
Here's how it works: 
  • Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  • Answer the questions that the tagger set for you and create 11 questions for bloggers you've tagged.
  • Choose up to 11 bloggers and link them in your post.
  • Go to their page and tell them.
  • No tag backs.
11 Things About Me:
  1. I love to watch trash tv aka reality tv but only if it has been recored so that I can fast forward through the commercials!
  2. I wear glasses but not everyday.
  3. My phone is usally glued to my right hand.
  4. I'm right handed.
  5. I love anything with a monogram. I can never have enough!
  6. My favorite colors are purple, green, and pink! I like them equally!
  7. I like any genre of music. Country, Rock, Rap, you name it, I can get jiggy with it! I can also 'bump" with the best of them!
  8. I have a scar on my top lip from when I was a toddler. I fell and cut my lip on my Dad's motorcycle muffler.
  9. I tried to be a badass in highschool. Now, I'm the little chihuaua barking behind the big dog. lol
  10. I hate my laugh, but I still do it.
  11. I hate the smell of cigarettes. It irritates me when I'm at a red light and see a puff of smoke come from the driver's window in front of me and then they flick it out when they are done. #litterbugs

Here are the questions Amanda asked:

What is something we don't know about you?
You may not know that I wear my jeans more than once before washing them! #don'tjudge

What is your dream job?
My dream job would be to travel the country with my family and get paid to tell you about it! I wouldn't mind living in a huge motorhome!

What is your favorite thing about blogging?
This by far would be meeting new friends! I have pretty awesome relationships with my blog friends. I never realized what would come of me blogging. It really started out as something to pass the time and a place to keep memories. It now has it's own place in my heart and so do the friends that I have made through my blog!

If I could give you a plane ticket to anywhere, where would you go?
Right now in this second, I would have to say a plane ticket to Colorado! I really dread this LOOOOONNNGG drive that we are about to take next week, but it will be SO worth it! I will be making a few stops along the way! To see family, and to meet blog friends! I am so excited! #7daysuntilweleave

What's your favorite meal?
Mexican food! Wait. Wings or pizza. Hell Both at the same time but not mixed together! I love food period! That's why I'm fat. I don't mind. I accept it. I like to call myself a "big girl". Saying I'm fat, that's just awkward for others to hear.

Any pets?
Yep. Willow. A tiny chihuauah that would rather be outside than inside. That's where she be.

If you won $150,000 how would you spend it?
I have it all planned out. The hubs would agree! We would pay off both cars and build a shop. Not just any shop, a big shop, man cave big shop. The rest would go into savings for Zane's college fund.

What is your favorite picture (please share it with us) and why?
Right now, this is my favorite picture. Crappy I know. But it shows two things. One, my obession with taking photos of myself in the car and two, how the hubs likes to mess those photos up! Every.Single.Time.

What's your favorite room in your house?
Hmm. That would have to be my livingroom. It's where we spend most of our time.

Tell us a little about your family...
Oh. Gah. We're WILD! When we talk we're loud. We like to laugh and give each other a hard time. We will pack our clothes for the weekend and not know our destination! We do not make our beds everyday, or ever. Wait. Unless I just washed the sheets, I will make the bed then, but that is only once a month or less. I pick up after myself most of the time, and the other two expect me to pick up theirs too. I usually do. Our grass grows in spots because of the oak tree. I will not let the hubs cut it down. There are black marks on the road in front of our house from burn outs. Yep. That's how you know you've arrived at the Smith's residence!

What do you consider to be your best quality?
Shit. That's a tough one. I don't know if I have a best quality. Do I? Maybe it's my ability to get easily distracted? Or it could be that I listen and forget what I just heard. So I will ask you again what you just said. Okay, my best quailty is my randomness. I will blurt out a song or maybe dance in the store like a ballerina for you. You Choose. Let me know. This could be fun. ha!

  1. This is great. I nominated you too but I completely forgot to let you know. Oops.

    Ha ha, you current picture is hilarious.

  2. Aw, thanks for the nomination! When I was little, my grandparents had a motorhome and went all over the country in it! I have all kinds of great memories traveling with them in it, and I'd love to travel the country in one, too!

  3. Love the "Self Portrait"! lol My husband does the same thing. Or every time I try to take a cute pic of us together he makes some messed up face and I end up having to re-do it like 8 million times.

  4. Girl I don't think I ever wash my jeans. And Mexican is my fav too! Let's eat nachos and drink margs!! Arriba Arriba!!!

  5. Awww, Annabelle, you know I am truly honored! I would have nominated you when I did a similar post a few days ago, but I assumed that because I consider you a way more experienced blogger that you had probably done this before. Looks like I guessed correctly! I will post my answers to your questions! I loved your answers which just prove how cool you are! I have always wore my jeans more than once before washing...they wear so much better once they are broken in and are often stiff right after washing. Plus, aren't dirty looking jeans what the cool kids wear? ;-)

  6. Awe, thank you!!! You have no idea how alike we are alike!
    Thank you! I need to get my post ready, lol!

    xoxo, bree

  7. You're a doll! Thanks for nominating me (and if I hadn't just done one of these a month or so ago, I'd so do it again!). But I can admit that I used to own Ace of Base's Happy Nation album (on tape) and knew EVERY song. :) Thankfully, I got rid of it a LONG time ago... :)

  8. Thanks for the award!! I’m all about skipping commercials too! I don’t watch anything on time anymore. And I feel the same way as you do about jeans and cigarettes!!!


Thanks for reading my blog! I LOVE hearing what you have to say and getting to know my readers! Make sure your email address is set up with your profile so that I am able to connect with you!
