Liebster Award Nomination

So, I was nominated for a Liebster Award by the lovely Krista from A Handful of Everything. Thanks a bunch, Krista!

I got really excited, then I got really curious. What the heck is a Liebster Award? So, I searched the web, and I found Sopphey's Blog. She did a whole blog post on the origin of a Liebster Award. In truth, it's not really an award. Basically, it's a nice way to let your fellow bloggers know that you love their blog, and you want to help spread the word about it. So, I'm game!

The rules, as I found out, have changed a bit since the award was originally thought up. You used to nominate 5 people, share 5 facts, answer 5 questions, and think of 5 new questions. Now, it has progressed to 11. I'm thinking 11 is a little too much for me, so I'm going with the originally (although I will answer all 11 questions Krista asked of me).

5 Random Facts about me:

1. I have a Business degree from the University of Alabama.
2. I have a mild form of ADD, and I randomly forget what I was doing or wander off.
3. I married one of my best friends.
4. I think of my dog as if she is a child.
5. I hate to clean.

11 Questions from Krista @ A Handful of Everything

1. What is your favorite color? - It's a tie between orange and pink. I gravitate towards pink things, but I love the brightness of orange.
2. What do you want to be when you grow up? - I'm pretty much living the dream right now. I guess I might want to have a few kids at some point, but for now I'm good with being a housewife.
3. If you were to recommend a book to a friend what book would it be? - I would recommend the Pretty Little Liars series. I know it's about teenagers, but it's so suspenseful.
4. What is your favorite holiday? - Christmas. I love decorating, baking, and wrapping gifts. I don't even care if I get anything.
5. Who is your hero? - My grandmother, because she is such a strong woman. She raised five kids all by herself, and they all turned out great.
6. Who are you most proud of? - My husband. He worked so hard to get through college, and he is now supporting us.
7. I have the hardest time completed (fill in the blank). - I have the hardest time completing the laundry. I hate folding and hanging up clothes.
8. If you could go anywhere in the world, and money was not an issue, where would you go? - I would go to Italy. I'd like to see Rome and Venice.
9. What is your favorite pizza topping? - Pepperoni. Hey what can I say? I'm a pretty simple girl.
10. What is your fondest memory? - When I was in 2nd grade, my dad checked me out of school for absolutely no reason and took me to the park. BEST DAY EVER!
11. What is your favorite movie? - Hmmm that's a hard one. I think I would say The Breakfast Club.
