Happy to say...

This little blog won a little award!
My sister and two of her friends have a super cute blog, The Plum Verbena, where they blog about the cutest crafts, clothes, food, parties, home decor, etc. If you have not checked it out already, be sure to head on over there and show them some love! They nominated me for this cute little award!
The Liebster Award is for blogs that have 200 followers or less. The word "Liebster" is German for kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, valued, cute, pleasant, endearing and welcome.
How sweet, right?!
Here are the rules for accepting the award:
1. Each person most post 11 things about themselves.

2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, and then create 11 new questions for the people you tag with the award.

3. Chose 11 bloggers (with less then 200 followers) and link them in your post.

4. Go to their page and tell them about the award (social networks accepted).

5. If you have not done so already, follow the tagger and visit at least three nominees. Spread the love!

6. And remember, no tag backs!
ONE: 11 Things you don't know about me.
1. Fall is my favorite time of the year! I love the crisp air, the changing leaves, and most importantly fall fashion! Boots are my favorite thing ever. I already have a new pair for this year, it's so hard not to wear them now. Boots in 90 degree weather are okay, right??
2. I'm a night owl and have really bad insomnia. I can't remember the last time I went to bed before midnight, unless I was really sick.
3. I am really weird about my feet when I sleep. I absolutely CANNOT sleep in socks under any circumstance, but I can't sleep without my feet under the blankets. I always feel like something is going to come and bite my toes off or something.
4. I love pretty much any chick flick in the history of mankind, no matter how cheesy and I strongly dislike boy movies (I'm lucky my husband likes chick flicks, too and don't worry, I still see some boy movies with him!).
5. In the 5th grade, my teacher passed out my cursive writing assignment for my classmates to trace. They all found out it was mine and pretty much hated me for it. It was a huge deal at the time and I cried about it. I cried a lot when I was younger, actually. I guess I was a little dramatic. My husband still thinks I am.
6. I love talking on the phone. My old roommates used to make fun of me because every time I walked in the door I had my phone attached to my ear.
7.  I went to London and Paris in high school with a school group and I can't wait to go back one day. I love to travel!
8. I don't like sports. Playing them, watching them, watching my husband play them on XBOX, watching ESPN. Any of it. I don't like it.
9. I secretly wish I could be a ballroom dancer.
10. Bruster's cotton candy explosion ice cream is my favorite ice cream of all time.
11. I can't eat breakfast food for breakfast. It makes me feel sick. Therefore, breakfast is my least favorite meal of the day and it is my husband's favorite.
TWO: Answers
1. Cake or Pie?
Pie. My mom's coconut cream pie. It tastes like heaven. I wish it didn't take her 6 hours to make so she would make it more often. That's why I can't wait for Thanksgiving.
2. Best gift you have ever received?
 That's a hard one. Probably my DSLR from my in-laws because it has made me want to take more pictures!
3. Favorite guilty pleasure food?
Hot Krispy Kreme donuts. Oh my gosh. I could eat a dozen of them in one sitting.
4. Do you sing in the shower or in the car?
In the car, when I am driving by myself.
5. Anywhere exotic/off the beaten path you would love to go?
I don't know how exotic this is, but I would love to go to Greece. It is the top of my list and is definitely off my beaten path...
6. What would you buy for yourself with $100?
Probably the new Juicy perfume, Viva La Juicy La Fleur. It smells AH-mazing and Benefit High Beam.
7. If you could go on a dream date (think Bachelor/Bachelorette style) where would you go? What would you do?
Oh wow. Well, of course we would have a private plane. So, first we would fly to London and see the sights and go on a shopping spree, then we would head over to Italy and eat some delicious authentic Italian food and gelato. THEN, after that, we would finish off in some exotic place with a beach and get couples massages and go horse back riding on the beach. It would definitely be an overnight date.
8. Favorite, can’t live without, beauty product?
Just one? This is hard. I guess my Colorescience Mineral Foundation. I love it.
9. Would you rather buy an old house with lots of character or a new house you could add your own style to?
A new house that I designed.
10. Favorite TV show?
 Desperate Housewives right now.
11. One thing on your Bucket List?
To run some type of race or marathon. I better get on that.
THREE: 11 Questions for the winners.
1. If you could meet any celebrity, who would it be and why?
2. Favorite childhood memory?
3. If you could choose 3 words to describe you, what would they be?
4. Would you rather live in a small apartment in a big city or a large home out in the country?
5. What would your dream job be?
6. Dogs or cats?
7. What is your all time favorite movie?
8. Staying in or going out?
9. Flats or heels?
10. If your house were on fire and you could only grab 3 things, what would they be?
11. What snacks would you bring on a road trip?
