nominated? moi?

i cannot believe it has taken me this long to finally write this post because i was beyond excited when i first heard the news. first hearing it, was out of the mouth of my big sissy over at nugget on a budget when she was nominated herself, twice! how cool and what an amazing honor.
of course i am getting ahead of myself here.
what i am talking about is the Liebster Blog Award!

to give a little 4-1-1 about this very special news, the Liebster Blog Award is for blogs with fewer than two hundred followers (which is this little chickey right here).  it is an amazing way to get to know other blogs, become friends, and support each other in every way.

how it works
post five random facts about yourself.
- answer the questions the nominator has asked you and ask your own five questions to the people you nominate.
- choose five other deserving blogs with less than two hundred followers to nominate and link to their blogs in our post.
- tell the nominees you have chosen them for this award by leaving a comment on their blogs.
..oh, and no tag backs!

a little bit random but...
1...i hate odd numbers. there is just something about them i just don't like. eating cookies, got to have two or four, never three. a nice even number just makes more sense.
2...i danced from the time i could walk until i graduated from high school. doing so led me to a lot of opportunities including a two week tour in europe performing and taking classes.
3...my very best friend has the exact same name as me.
4...i could never be happier then when i am at home.
5...my favorite color is yellow.

now, questions from my norminator...
1. Who was your favorite athlete in the London 2012 Olympics and why?
hands down, michael phelps. once a phelps phan, always a phelps phan, end of story.
2. In the past year, what was the most expensive item that you splurged on?
my michael kors purse, graduation present to moi.
3. What is you favorite place to visit in the United States and why?
bethany beach, DE. it has been our family vacation spot my entire life and there is no place i would rather be.
4. If you attended college, what did you major in? If not, what made you choose the job that you currently have? (Oh, and being a stay-at-home mom IS a job!)
i majored in elementary education, minor in early childhood education.
5. Why did you decide to start a blog? (Yes I know repeat question, but you have to admit it's interesting!)
i started a blog as a way to get out my thoughts and because i have always loved to write. not to mention i was told that i couldn't do it, and there is nothing more motivating then making the "impossible", possible.
and now, my nominees are...
drumroll please
ladies from wardrobes i met and liked
(a special nom to amy..over 200 but i still wanted to nominate you!)
and my questions for my nominees...
1.  why did you decide to start a blog? (i know it is a repeated question but i think it is interesting to hear how people decide to start their blogs)
2.  if you could be one disney character for a day, which would you be and why? (you know you've thought about it)
3.  craziest thing you have ever done. if you had a partner in crime, who was it?
4. guilty pleasure?
5.  what are your top three favorite blogs to read?
and there we have it! if that wasn't a post and a half, i don't know what is.
