Liebster Award for Me



*Clears throat*  May I have your attention please?  May I have your attention?  *Taps microphone*  Is this thing on?  I'd like to thank the Academy... No, not really, but yeah, I did get a blog award. :)  Zoe at My Wondrous Marvellous Obsession gave me a Liebster Blog Award.


Rules for the award:
Each person must post eleven things about themselves.
Answer the eleven questions the tagger has set for you.
Come up with eleven other questions for the people that you are going to tag.
Choose eleven people (with less than 200 followers) and tag them in your post, no tagbacks.
Follow the tagger and visit at least three of the nominees.

11 Facts About me:

1. I'm a stay-at-home Mom that LOVES being with her children.
2. Although my husband is the computer genius in our family, I wrote the coding and designed my blog myself.
3. I'm from a pretty big city, but sort of enjoy living in a smaller city, although I'm not to keen on everyone knowing your business.
4. My son is named after his Uncle Andrew Jacob, my husband's brother, who went to Heaven in a car wreck when he was only 7.
5. My daughter is named after Alyssa Milano, well actually her character Samantha on Who's the Boss since she was a tom-boy softball player.  Ellyssa is the Irish version and wouldn't you know it, my daughter is a great softball player.
6. I'm a BIG Alabama fan who married an Auburn fan and bought him a dog that he named Sir Aubie Tiger.
7. I HATE humidity, I guess I picked the wrong state to live in.
8. I wear flip flops in the winter, yes even in the snow.
9. I despise photographers that change the colors of things with Photoshop.  I don't mean making a pink dress purple, I mean making grass a shade of green that God didn't make it.
10. My husband is my best friend, whom I keep NOTHING from.
11. I LOVE blogging and reading blogs, if I could I would make it my full-time job.  People are SO different and really add color to the world.

Eleven Questions from Zoe:

1. Why did you start blogging?
To make a book as a sort of keepsake for my children and grandchildren.
2. What is your favorite thing to do on a rainy day?
Snuggle up with a blanket and one or both of my children and watch TV, maybe even take a nap.
3. If money was no object, where would you like to visit?
Venice, Italy... I want to see the streets of water
4. What was the last song you listened to?
I don't remember, I listen to Lite 96.9 which is music from the 80s and 90s and sing a long with most all of the songs.  With my son's sensitivity, he freaks sometimes with today's music and the computer stuff that is added.
5. Would you rather be a dog or a cat for a day?
I would have to say a dog, so I could just go off and bark at anything that moved just once and people just thing it was ok since I was a dog.
6. If time travel was invented, where would you go?
The 70s, when things were peace and love and people didn't lock their doors.
7. Do you prefer city life or country life?
My husband is a "country boy,"  and I like it, but I can't stand to be too far away from things.  I'm very forgetful and when I go to the store I always forget something.
8. What is your favorite brand of nail polish?
OPI, it seems to last longer
9. High end or Drug store make up?
It doesn't really matter to me because I don't really wear makeup much
10.What was the last thing you bought?
Diapers on tax-free weekend
11. How would you describe yourself in three words? 
Mom, friend, listener
