This is a big deal to me. 
It is my first blog award and I LOVE it. 
I want to kiss it and hug it and let it snuggle with me and my Beagle (after she has had a bath.)

Jen over at Filling up my cup nominated me and now I love her.  And I want to hug her and kiss her and let her snuggle with me and my Beagle (once again this is much better after she has had a bath.)

Go check out Filling up my cup for me please! You will not regret it! Have I mentioned I love her?

This is an award for blogs with 200 or less followers. It's a way to say "keep up the great work" to each other! When you are nominated you post 10 random facts about yourself and answer 10 questions from the person who nominated you. Then pass the award onto 10 other bloggers you think deserve it.

Here are the questions Jen asked me:

1.  If you were forced to cheat on your significant other with a celebrity, who would you choose?
Tom Hardy. Hands down.  I love this man.  Only if I was FORCED though.  I mean forcibly forced of course!
2.  If you knew your next meal was going to be your last, what would you order?
Taco's and brownies.
3.  What is your current favorite song?

I'm still loving "Mean" by Taylor Swift even though its pretty old. 

4.  What was your favorite song in high school?

Technically it was middle school, but Shoop by Salt N Peppa. I knew every single word (still do)
5.  Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip?
As a New Yorker who moved to the South in High School i feel obliged to break this question down a bit more.  It only seems right to re-word it as follows: Duke, Hellmans, or Miracle Whip?  Because in the South if you say mayonnaise you are getting Dukes.  But as a native New Yorker Dukes just doesnt cut it.  Hellman's is the only way to go. Hellman's all the way, all day.  Miracle whip?  Only in coleslaw. 

6.   How often do you change your sheets?
I strive for once a week.  I'll be honest, doesn't always happen.

7.  What's your favorite brand of shampoo?
 I have issues spending alot of money on shampoo, so I usually just pick up cheap old Suave.  Then I lie to my hairdresser when she asks.

8.   Is the first person you kissed still in your life?
Sad Story - First kiss was on my elementary school playground with a sweet boy named Ryan.  Unfortunately years later he lost his life in a car accident driving from a ski resort. 

9.  What's the biggest misperception people have about you?

I have what they call "bitch face". I don't always look like the nicest person, but once you get to know me you realize I am (sometimes :) )

10.  Describe your biggest "foot in your mouth" moment.

I passed Ron Francis in the hallway at the rink (legendary retired Carolina Hurricanes player and now coach of the Hurricanes power play) and promptly told him that I thought his power play sucked.  At the time we had just lost the game, i can be a sore loser and to be honest his power play DID suck! Probably too many Blue Moons that night.


Now its time for me to nominate ten NEW Liebster Blogs!
I worked hard to pick out ten blogs I really enjoy that are under 200 followers and let me tell you I had to cut a lot of blogs to narrow it to ten.  I wish I could have listed more! 

Congratulations fellow bloggers!  I hope this Liebster I pass on makes you feel as good as mine made me feel! 

Here are your ten questions:

1.     Would you rather see a movie at the theater or at home on DVD?
2.     Which movie make you cry?
3.     Name one book you had to read but hated.
4.     Which is the best vacation you've ever had?
5.     If you could have a luncheon with any three people (real or fictitious/from any time   period/dead or alive), which three people would you choose?
6.     If given complete freedom to start afresh, what profession would you choose?
7.     Bath or shower?
8.     Last thing you bought?
9.     Did you watch Trading Spaces?
10.   What do you do when you are sad to make yourself happy again?

  4. Just stumbled across your blog... Congrats on your Liebster award! Your random facts seriously cracked me up. Especially about your beagle keeping you company when you take a bath! And that's pretty awesome that you were a competitive figure skater! I also love that you lie to your hairdresser! Hey, whatever works! I hate spending money on stuff like that too (especially because it nevvvver works like it says on the bottle!)

  5. I like that Taylor Swift song, too...I don't think that songs have to become old. :)

    "The Wizard of Oz" always makes me uneasy.

  6. Congrats on the award! Thats wonderful!
