Blogging AWARD: Liebster Award


I was nominated a few weeks ago for the Liebster Award by Britney over at all things Britney Lee and I was/am soooooo excited. I had great intentions of making sure I was able to answer the questions and nominate blogging friends in a timely manner but school got the best of me. I now have a little bit of time to answer the questions and be able to nominate my blogging friends.

Here goes nothing………

  1. what are some of your favorite movies? Currently I am watching Pitch Perfect while I sew and craft. I am a big fan of the movie Old School.
  2. what is one of your favorite quotes? My favorite quote is one that I have repeated again and again since I was in high school and that is “Work like you don’t need the money, Love like you have never been hurt, and Dance like no one is watching!”
  3. if you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I think if I could learn to do one thing it would be to make a good well thought out workout plan. I love to work out but feel silly when I go into the gym alone (without a trainer). If I was able to write my own workouts and actually look like I know what I was doing I would like that!
  4. if you had to change you first name, what would you change it to? Change my first name? Man this is a hard question! I have LOTS of names that I love but it would be hard to replace my name with something else. I currently love the names Everly, Lola, and Presley.
  5. what are three pet peeves of yours? Currently my pet peeves are (1) when students just assume that because one person asked to do something or use something that they are also aloud to do the same (2) I am a tall girl and have been blessed with long legs. When people are walking REALLY slow or they just stop in the middles of the path is a pet peeve of mine (3) Last but not least when people tell me I am too loud or that I talk too much. I love to meet new people and feel that being a talkative person is a positive trait that I have.
  6. what is your favorite joke? When I read this question I laughed to myself a bit! Growing up my dad would tell us this joke and it is one I still tell people to joke around with them. “Knock, Knock. Who’s there? Banana. Knock, Knock. Who’s there? Banana. Knock, Knock. Who’s there? Orange. Orange Who? Orange you glad I didn’t say Banana again.”
  7. what are three of your guilty pleasures? Three guilty pleasures of mine are (1) I am a reality TV junky. I tend to watch any kind of reality TV show on my TV (2) I LOVE coffee. I will stop and get a coffee wherever I am in the morning. I really enjoy trying out new little local coffee shops (3) I really love to go into craft stores. I guess my last guilty pleasure would be I really like to try LOTS of different crafts and I have LOTS of craft supplies.
  8. if you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today? If I knew I was going to die tomorrow I would be sure that today I would surround myself with the people I love, friends and family. I would do all the things I love to do, and eat all my favorite meals.
  9. what is your favorite physical features about yourself. I would say that my favorite physical feature is my eyes. They are a light honey brown color. Depending on the color I am wearing, how I am feeling or the light I am in my eyes will change colors. Many people don’t notice them and some will walk up start talking with me then are caught off guard by my eye color.
  10. why are you so awesome? I think I am awesome because I really love to craft, cook and blog. I am a very outgoing and friendly person. I always see the positive in the situation or in the person. I am awesome because if I have a friend in need I tend to drop everything and help.
