Liebster Award

An award? For this little ole blog? This is a very exciting first for me! Thanks to Meredith over at The Mitten Wife for nominating me for a Liebster award. When I was reading her post about her award, and got to the bottom and saw that her nominations included May Richer Fuller Be, I had to read it twice because I was so surprised!

So now you may be asking, what is a Liebster award exactly? It's an award given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers. "Liebster" is a German word meaning: sweetest, kindest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

Well gosh, now I'm blushing. Thanks again, Meredith!

When you receive this award, there are a few follow up items you need to complete in order to "accept" your award properly. It's sort of a gift that keeps on giving - kind of fun, huh? :)

To accept the award you are supposed to...
  1. Post 11 things about themselves.
  2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you + create 11 questions for the people that you've tagged to answer.
  3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
  4. Go to their page and tell them.
  5. No tagbacks!
Let's get started, shall we?

11 Things About Myself:

1. I have absolutely loved blogging since I started doing it regularly back in October, but it's also a little nerve-wracking putting myself "out there" in the blogosphere.

2. I am an incurable people pleaser. It's a constant struggle.

3. In "real life," as I like to say, I'm a genetic counselor. Most people have no idea what that is, so if you're curious, I'd be more than happy to talk to explain!

4. I talk to, and treat my dog, Jackson, like he's a person. It might be slightly unhealthy. 

5. I've run a half-marathon, three 10ks, two 8ks and one 5k, but I mostly hate running. I do it to satisfy my competitive side and to burn calories quickly, but I dislike it strongly.

6. I have a serious sweet tooth problem, and the candy cravings of a 5 year old. I'd be happy with a pack of skittles every day for the rest of my life (or some double fudge brownie ice cream).

7. I'm a huge college football fan, and am especially fond of my Auburn Tigers. War Eagle!

8. I really, really love my husband. I honestly can't imagine life without him (cheeseball alert - sorry).

9. I spend way too much time thinking about ideas for this blog.

10. I got Adobe Creative Suite for Christmas, and I'm slowly, slowly learning it so I can up my graphic design capabilities. I probably just need to take a class, but I'm too cheap (and stubborn) to do that right now.

11. I dream that Taylor Swift and I will be best friends one day. Yep, I'm that girl. 
Meredith's Questions, My Answers:

1. Name the song that best represents you.
Everything Has Changed by Taylor Swift (yep, there she is again). I'm going with a cheesy love song for this one, since it's Valentine's day this week and all.

2. If you could be an animal, what would you be?
A dog. Love 'em in real life, and I think a dog's life is pretty dang good.

3. What's your guilty pleasure?
Eating a large bowl of ice cream after dinner.

4. Best vacation you've ever taken?
It's a toss up between our Turks and Caicos honeymoon and our Italy trip this past summer.

5. Most embarrassing moment in a public place?
Face planting in the mud while running full speed at summer camp in 11th grade. In a dress.

6. What's your biggest fear?
Disappointing people. (See? People pleaser problems.)

7. Favorite board game?
Bazaar. It's an old (from the 1950s, I think?) trading game I was introduced to a couple of years ago.

8. Go-to recipe?

9. Would you ever get plastic surgery?
Not cosmetic. Maybe if I was in a bad accident or something.

10. 10 years ago when you dreamed of your future, are you doing what you dreamed of?
Actually, yeah, pretty close! Never thought I'd be blogging though!

11. Best ice cream parlor you've ever visited?
Not sure I have one? My favorite frozen yogurt place is called Sweet Frog. It started in Richmond, but has now expanded all over the place.

  11. How Long Do They Last?
    How you care for your hair after your visit will determine how long your style lasts. "hand tied extensions can last anywhere from 6 to 9 weeks before needing to be renewed." However, the duration between treatments is determined by how quickly your hair grows and if you are properly caring for your hair. "Hair extensions itself should last longer if properly cared for, and may usually be reused for 6-8 months."
    To release stress on the scalp, you'll also want to make sure you're scheduling regular maintenance checkups. "Having them pushed up and removed at the right time can assist to ensure that your hair does not experience too much tension as it grows out." Even if you're using extensions, many stylists recommend detangling, washing, and moisturizing your own hair correctly.
