Liebster Blogging Award

The other day a sweet little gal named Jen from Little.Miss.Alizzi nominated me for a Liebster Blogging Award. I didn’t know what the heck it was or what it meant, so naturally I turned to my friend Google. It brought me to this blog in which the author wrote about the awards origin. Anyway, I guess it doesn’t really matter because it must mean something pretty cool to get nominated for a bloggy award, so I accept! Jen is so sweet too & she’s been linking up some great crafty stuff on The Pinterest Project the last few weeks. She’s pretty dang crafty so check her out!
The award requires me to answer some questions the lovely Jen came up with, so here they are:
1. What is your favorite store to shop at? Probably Target. I can get pretty much everything there plus they usually have cute clothes and accessories. Everyone can leave Target happy, especially the kids (who get Icees & popcorn every time!)
2. What is your favorite type of food? Anything junk food related. See here:
I should be like a 2 ton mom by now, but somehow I dodged that bullet.
3. What is your favorite summer activity? Pretty much anything that involves being outside near water with my cute little family. As long as we have that, we are happy!
4. What is your biggest pet peeve? Hmmmm well I’m pretty picky…so I have a LOT of pet peeves. But to name a few: procrastinators, people who are always late, & when people don’t call/text back.
5. What color best describes you? This one is hard because I honestly don’t really have a favorite color. I really don’t. I wear mostly black so I’d say black is my favorite. But that doesn’t really describe me. OK if you really want a color that describes me I’d say pink because I’m pretty girly.
See? Even with the tattoos & black clothes I still gotta have my hot pink girly nails 🙂
11 random facts about me:
1. I’m a clean freak. Seriously. I don’t like things out of place & I hate clutter.
2. I’m constantly thinking of ways to fight off an intruder or kidnapper if I were to ever be in a situation like that. My mind wanders & thinks of the craziest things I swear. Too much Dateline!
3. I have 4 little Harry Potter tattoos on my knuckles.
4. I was a natural blond until I was about 7 years old.
5. I’m a California girl living in the Pacific Northwest. Born in Orange, CA.
6. I have the back of an 80 year old woman.
7. I generally don’t like animals & prefer not to have pets at all.
8. Men in general repulse me. Except for my husband! But ewww, creepers, don’t hit on me.
9. I hate snow & even though I live in WA state I’ve never been skiing or snow boarding.
10. I used to skate board as a teenager. I got pretty good (for a girl I guess).
11. I’m afraid of deep water. (sharks? seaweed? alligators?)
