Liebster Awards

I ended up getting nominated for the Liebster Award twice this week...how fun is that? So I figured I'd go ahead and combine the two so you guys don't have to read 22 facts about me and you know...be bored to tears. In case you haven't heard of the Liebster Award, it's a blogging award passed around for smaller blogs like mine with less than 200 followers. Here are the rules:

1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, and then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
3. Choose 11 new bloggers(with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5. No tag backs


11 Random Facts about Me:
1) I am obsessed with Broadway musicals and spend most of my alone time in our house singing obnoxiously loud songs from Phantom, Les Mis, Cats, or anything from that show Smash.
2) My husband and I became friends my last year of highschool and there were two Mikes in that group and I always referred to him as "the mean Mike." This super freaked out my mom when we started dating 8 years later...you mean the mean guy?
3) I can type really fast. And I actually enjoy typing. I think it's because my parents made my sister and I take these typing tests on our computer at home when we were young and they included some kind of spaceship that would blow up sentences with mistakes. It was fun for us nerds.
4) I Google everything. I don't understand how anyone ever doesn't know something. Fricking Google it! I have almost yelled that at numerous clients.
5) I'm really bad at doing my makeup so I do the exact same eye makeup every single day.
6) I hate my hair no matter the length, cut, color, anything.
7) I would rather eat cheese than anything else in the world.
8) I talk about poo more than anyone ever should. And I find it hilarious.
9) I can puff my lips out like a horse and for some reason it really makes people laugh.
10) I didn't have my first kiss until I was 17.
11) I'm the easiest drunk ever. As in I get drunk easily, not the other meaning for that word. Hmmm I should re-word this...

Melissa's Questions for Me:
1. Where did you grow up? Ridgecrest, CA a tiny little town in the Mojave desert
2. If you could live anywhere where would it be? London. Even though it would probably be super stressful and loud and expensive, but oh I love it.
3. What is on your DVR at all times? Fringe, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, and my guilty pleasure the Real Housewives shows.
4. What are two things on your bucket list? Go to Australia and get a job I don't hate.
5. Where can you usually be found doing on the weekends? Hiking, watching movies, or drinking wine with my husband.
6. What's your favorite hobby? Reading and writing.
7. Are you guilty of watching reality shows? Which ones? Real Housewives! My husband HATES it. But seriously, they make me feel better for not being rich and thin because those bitches are crazy.
8. What is your favorite holiday and why? I love Christmas. I just love everything about it, the decorations, the music, the festivities, the presents (duh).
9. Do you have a favorite quote that is meaningful to you?
10. What is your favorite thing about blogging? Getting my thoughts out in the open rather than holding them in and connecting with people I would have never met otherwise.
11. Do you have a beauty product you cannot live without? I double layer my Cover Girl mascara. One layer not waterproof, then a layer of waterproof. It's the only mascara that has ever worked for me.

Ellissa's questions for me:
1. If you could be any character from the Scooby Doo gang who would you be? Scooby. Because he's a dog and all they do is sleep, eat, and poop. Also, I enjoy his voice.
2. What is your stress relief? Wine. Is that a bad answer? Also, Pinterest.

4. If you could be any food what would you be? Cheeeeeese!
5. Where do you get your news from? Twitter...is that bad?! I follow all the news outlets on there and click on the headlines that interest me. The news is depressing, I have a hard time wanting to read it.
6. What nail polish color best represents your personality? Bright yellow.
7. Who is your biggest blog inspiration? Nat The Fat Rat
8. Describe your blog in one sentence. Nonsense.
9. What's your favorite non-domesticated (i.e. not a cat or dog) animal? I find sea lions adorable even though in reality they would probably bite my face off. But they're so fat and noisy, I want to rub their bellies.
10. If you could only visit one place, where would you go? London again or if it's somewhere I've never been, Australia.
11. What's your favorite season and why? Winter. I love bundling up in sweaters and fluffy socks and sitting in front of a fire. It's the most romantic season to me.
