I got a Liebster Award!


Amy at Small Budget Beauty was kind enough to nominate me for the Liebster Award.  What does Liebster mean? The word “liebster” is of German origin and means “favorite, beloved, dearest”.  That I'm someones beloved blog means a whole lot to me!  So thank you again!

With great power comes great responsibility and so I have a few items to complete:
  • Reveal 11 random things about myself
  • Answer 11 questions that the person who nominated me has set
  • Create 11 new questions for my nominees
  • Tag 11 other blogs with less than 200 followers & let them know they've been nominated
  • Do not tag the person who originally tagged you.

11 Random things about me...
1) I may have mad makeup skillz, but I can't make my hair look normal without a LOT of work
2) I quilt by hand, crosstich and do lots of other "crafty" projects!
3) I usually get at least 10 hours of sleep a night (I need my beauty rest!)
4) I don't ever want to have children, I've known that since I was 4 years old. And 30 years later it's still true.
5) I am really good at interviews, as in if their was a job interview Olympics I'd be a gold medalist
6) Public speaking is my forte, and I have done voice over work.
7) I'm scared of mirrors at night.
8) I didn't like Twilight (books or the one movie I watched) AT ALL (sorry everyone!)
9) I <3 Madonna and I wish people would stop ragging on her for her looks, did you really think she was going to wear mom jeans and cardigans as she got older?
10) I don't often wear bracelets because it makes me feel like I can't breathe (weird pressure point thing, maybe?)
11) I eat candy every day - and thus I have had 2 root canals.

    1. Thank you so much- I kind of love it too :)

  2. I feel the same way about my hair & mirrors totally freak me out, in fact I make it a point to not make eye contact with them when I go to bed, is that weird? ha

    And thank you for the nomination!! :)

    1. I won't make eye contact either - it's like I said we are mind twins!
