Liebster Award!!!!!!!!!

Liebster Award?  Me?!  Why Yes, Thank You!!!!!!!


I want to say a huge thank you to Zorkyoto Mykola at Elephants with Clothes for nominating me for the Liebster Award!  The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.  It is  a way to show new bloggers that they are appreciated and help spread the word about their blog!

The Rules:  In your post you must link back to me and...
1. Post 11 random things about yourself.
2. Answer the questions that the nominator set for you.
3. Create 11 questions for the bloggers you nominate.
4. Choose 11 blogs you love (with less than 200 followers) and a link them in your post.
5.  Let them know you nominated them by commenting on their blog! 

Random Facts About Me:
1.  I am obsessed with Mexican food. I could seriously eat it every single day!
2.  I married my high school sweetheart.  We have been together for 9 years, married for 3!
3.  Even though I absolutely hate listening to the news because it is always soooo negative I always have to have it on in the background.  There's just something comforting about it.  (I know, it's weird.)
4.  If I could live anywhere in the world I would live in Seattle, Washington.  I love the weather and there's just a cute eclectic culture there.
5.  I am covered in freckles.  In fact there have been many times that small children have asked me why I'm covered in "dots". :-)
6.  I love rain and snow.  It is super relaxing to me.
7.  I will not vacuum or dry my hair when I am home alone.  There is just something creepy about how loud it is.
8.  If I could wear a maxi skirt every day I absolutely would.
9.  I love to cook.  I rarely ever completely follow a recipe and it almost always turns out delicious!
10.  I am an OU alumni!  Sooner born, Sooner bred, when I die I'll be Sooner dead!
11.  I literally can have no light or noise when I sleep.  Every night I sleep with a shirt over my eyes so I can see zero light and I often sleep with ear plugs in.  Again, weird, I know!

Questions from Zorkyoto for me:
1. What is your favorite color?
My favorite color is pink!  Always has been, always will be!

2. Why did you choose to blog?
I chose to start blogging to share ideas and stories from teaching, cooking and overall life!

3. What is your favorite animal?
I love dogs.  I grew up with lots of dogs and I have two myself.  Whenever I see a stray dog I have to pull over and help him find his home!

4. Do you have any siblings?
Yes! I have one sister and she is my best friend!

5. Have you ever traveled outside of your country?
When I was 11 I went to Canada on a vacation with my family.  I went on a mission trip my senior year of high school to Jamaica which was amazing and sad at the same time.  And for my honeymoon my husband and I went on a cruise to the Bahamas!  Loved it!

6. What is your favorite type of music?
I am obsessed with country music!  Luke Bryan, will you marry me?!

7. What is your favorite artist or group?

8. What are you most passionate about?
I am most passionate about learning.  I love to learn and I hope that I instill that in my students as well as my own daughter one day!

9. What are some of your favorite hobbies?
Some of my favorite hobbies are scrapbooking, cooking and reading.

I was a cheerleader from 6th-12th grade!  Man I sure wish I had my cheerleader body back!
