Liebster Awards

I just got nominated for my first Liebster Award! How cooooool!!!!

My friend Jess at The Artsy Cajun nominated me and how it works is you give 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you. You then nominate 11 other bloggers (with less than 200 followers) and give them 11 questions to answer!

Here are my 11 random facts:
1. I have a collection of lip balms. It’s so dry here that I’m constantly trying to avoid chap lips.
2. I have a collection of probably 100 Snoopys. Most of them came from Whitman’s chocolate boxes at Christmas and Valentine’s Day.
3. I’m allergic to dogs. I still have dogs, I just can’t play with them all the time without taking a decent amount of Benadryl. 🙁
4. I once exchanged numbers with a TV star. I quickly found out the dirtbag had a girlfriend. 
5. When I was younger I wanted to be a fashion designer. I spent hours every day sewing.
6. I was homeschooled from grades 8-12.
7. I graduated when I was 16.
8. I never had a fake ID.
9. I’ve lived in five different states- California, Arizona, Maryland, Nevada, and Georgia.
10. I once almost got bitten by a penguin in Uruguay.
11. I’m under five feet tall.
The 11 questions I was given to answer: 
What is your driving force in blogging?
I love actually having a way to document the randomness in my life. It’s nice having my own little corner of the internet to do whatever I want!
Dogs or cats?
Dogs dogs dogs. I love dogs. Dogs think I actually AM a dog. You know how dogs get excited when they get a new friend? That’s how I act when I see a dog. Cats seem to think so too because they don’t really like me so much. 
What is your favorite, go-to bible verse?
I honestly don’t know; there are so many great ones for so many situations. 
How has blogging changed your life?
I’ve made some great new friends and it’s given me something to look forward to.
What is your favorite down-time activity?
It depends on my mood; I usually play World of Warcraft with Marc. 
When you think back, what is your favorite childhood memory?
Fishing at the lake with my dad was always fun and stands out but I’ve got a lot of great memories; too many to choose.
How do you balance work, blog, and family?
Um… Don’t tell anyone… I rearrange my line-up and do a lot of blogging on my lunch breaks… If I have a longer post, I do parts here and there to finish it. It’s part of my life that doesn’t take up that much time so it’s easy to commit to frequently. 
Favorite song at the moment?
Round Here by Florida Georgia Line!
Describe your perfect day?
Sleeping in, sailing for the afternoon with Marc, and then making a nice dinner in or going to eat somewhere we can watch the sunset.
Where would you like to travel next?
The Bahamas, but I know my next trip is the exact opposite. Salt Lake City. Snow. 
What is your best piece of advise for new bloggers?
Do it for yourself. I love having this blog to look back and see my year and the things that make me happy. I try not to stress-blog (is that a word?) or put a lot of complaints here because this is my happy place and I want to look at it and be happy. 
My 11 questions for my nominees (I’m sorry, they’re kind of weird):
