Getting to know me.

Well, looks like you get a triple dose of me today.  I had another Q/A session planned, but turns out you will get to learn a few more things about me today through another way. I'll pick up with a Q tomorrow!

Allie nominated me for another Liebster Award.  I'm fortunate enough that I've gotten this award before (You can find that post here.) But I thought since I've gotten so many new followers since then, and of course Allie added her own questions to the mix, I'll give it another go!

So, go grab a coke, get comfy, and here's all about me..

The Liebster Award
Facts of the Liebster Award:The Liebster Award's origins are pretty much a mystery. Bloggers nominate other bloggers that have 200 or less followers. It's basically a "Hey, that's a sweet little blog you've got there. Here's an award!" You can't just accept the award. You have to play by the (ever changing) rules and pay it forward. Then you can put the award on your blog for all to see.The Rules:
1. List 11 facts about yourself. (I hope that you enjoy them! I tried to write things that hopefully my readers may not know, but then things that new people stopping in may find interesting as well.)
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you. (My 11 questions for each of the 11 nominated blogs are near the bottom of this post!)
3. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 11 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate. (At the very bottom of this post you will find the links!)
5. Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award.
6. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog. (see the intro of this post!)

Allie's Eleven Questions:
1. Have you ever been in love?
- Oh my, Yes.  I've thought I was a couple other times in my life.  But those were only moments that were teaching me the elements of what it takes to truly be IN LOVE with someone.  B has my heart & soul and I've never felt more happy or like I was in the right place in my life as I do now.  So yes, for the first time in all my years- I'm in love and it's with the man of my dreams.

2. What's your most embarrassing moment?
- One time when I was in school, probably Junior High, I went to sit down at my desk and I completely missed the seat.  Everyone saw, everyone laughed, and I was mortified.  It could be a lot worse, I know, but that has stayed with my in my mind for years since that day.

3. What's your favorite TV show?
-The Walking Dead.  I know that sounds like such a strange pick for me to have since I'm not typically into those type of things, but it is SUCH a great storyline.  I don't even really care about the "zombie scenes" I just like the different life stories that go along with each character. 
Also, a new one on me is Revenge.  I've seen numerous Fb & Twitter alerts about this show, so I finally gave in and looked it up on Netflix.  Hooked isn't even the word. ommmmg! I'm on episode 10 of Season One and I'm trying hard to get caught up so I can start watching it at regular times with all you lovely ladies!

4. If you had one wish, what would it be?
-Only one wish!?! Whew, let's see.  I have a gazillion things I've love to wish for, stupid things really. But my biggest wish would have to be the one I want more than anything.  And that's to be a mother.

5. What is your favorite thing in your closet right now?
-Wowza!  I'm going with my leopard loafers.  I just adore them!

6. What is your favorite store to shop at?
-Target, but unfortunately we do not have one anywhere near where I live.  Well, okay, there is one about an hour away, but who has time to run that far all the time?!?  We reallllly need one.

7. Wal-Mart or Target?
-Well, I have to go with Wal-Mart on this one simply because of my answer in #6.  I love Target more, but we only have a Wal-Mart here in BFE. :) haha

8. Cats or dogs?
- Dogs, all the way.  I'm not a cat person, at all.

9. What song best describes your life?
-Blake Shelton's God Gave Me You.  That's B and I's song, and it describes us perfectly.  Love my man!

10. If you had a TV show, what would you call it?
-Keeping Up With Kayla, duh!  Hehe, no I think the Kardashian's would sue me then, hahaha!  Umm, I don't know.  Maybe "The White Way" :) Some of you will get that, some won't!

11. Do you plan on voting in the upcoming election?
-Yes, I will be.  I actually work the election polls, so I'll be very involved that day!
