Liebster Blog Award!

Brittney over at The Sweet Life nominated me for a Liebster Blog Award, wahoo!

The Liebster is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers and it's meant to be a nice, welcoming way to get to know each other in this lovely little blogging community.

So here are the rules:
1. Each person must list 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the 11 questions that the tagger has set for you plus you MUST create a set of 11 new questions for the people you will nominate.
3. Choose up to 11 bloggers linking them to your post.
4. Go to their page and inform them of the nomination.
5. Absolutely No tag backs.
6. Remember to only tag bloggers with less than 200 followers.

So here goes!

The 11 things about myself:

1)  I love cheese more than almost anything in the world.
2)  I constantly wake up in the middle of the night to make sure my dogs are breathing.
3)  I cannot handle my liquor.
4)  I think I'm funnier than I have any right to.
5)  I get super jealous when I see other people's weddings because I think I botched mine.
6)  I feel like I'm too old to show cleavage anymore (my husband hates that about me)
7)  I usually quit when things get tough so being in my last class for grad school is pretty scary.
8)  I am super self conscious despite what the massive amount of self portraits on instagram may make you think.
9)  I am not nearly as smart as people give me credit for, I'm just a good bullshitter.
10)  I do not think I'm lucky that my husband is a cleaning freak even though everyone else does.
11)  I'm a horrible driver.

The 11 questions Brittney gave me:

1)  What is one thing you are sure about?  My marriage.  100% and that took a long time for me to be able to say that.
2)  If you could visit one place, where would it be?  I really want to go to Greece.
3)  What brings you happiness?  Simple days when my husband and I are grocery shopping or just watching a movie in our pjs or walking the dogs.  Simple and relaxing things.
4)  Are you a day or night person?  Day for sure, I get tired at the end of the day and I look like ass after a whole day!  ha.
5)  Do you have any pet-peeves?  People that don't use their turn signals, people who don't say bless you when I sneeze, and people who are snobby.
6)  Why did you start blogging?  I was unemployed and bored and I like to hear myself talk!
7)  What is your favorite blog to read?  I love Nat the Fat Rat and Vicki Christine.  I love a ton, but those are my favs right now.
8)  Who do you respect the most?  My parents who both went to school later in life and did a great job with their lives despite a lot of obstacles!
9)  Do you have any hobbies?  Blogging of course, reading, and writing. (No time for hobbies with grad school!)
10)  Desktop or laptop?  Desktop!
11) What’s your favorite season and why?  Winter.  The more layers of clothes, the better!

11 Questions for the people I nominate:

1)  Besides blogs, what website(s) do you check daily?
2)  How long did it take you to tell your friends and family about your blog?
3)  What inspires you to blog the most?
4)  What is the best birthday present you've ever received?
5)  What food could you not possibly live without?
6)  What is your go-to piece of clothing in your closet right now?
7)  What blogger inspires you right now?
8)  What is your favorite word?
9)  What country are you dying to visit?
10)  If you could have any job, what would it be?
11)  What is your favorite ride at Disneyland?
