Liebster Blog Award

Ashley over at Southern State of Mind nominated me for my first ever blog award! Thanks, Ash! Go check out her blog-it's cute :)

The Liebster Award is for up and coming bloggers (200 followers or less) that you think deserve recognition for their fabulous blogging abilities.

Here's how this award process works...

Each nominee should:
Choose five blogs to give the Liebster Award to.

Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

Post the award on your blog.

                                      List the bloggers you gave the award to with links to their sites.

                                  Leave the bloggers you gave the award to with links to their sites.

                             Leave a comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award.

Share five random facts about yourself.

My 5 Facts!

 1. I'm a reality t.v. junkie. I'm stealing this one from Ashley, because it's SO true for me. My DVR is nothing but reality TV shows, except for Desperate Housewives and GCB. It's a tad ridiculous how many reality tv shows that I watch on a frequent basis. I LOVE the Real Housewives of Orange County and Atlanta, Bethenny Ever After, The Bachelor/ette, Sweet Home Alabama, The Little Couple, 19 Kids and Counting, Fashion Star, and soon I'll be watching Melissa & Tye as well (LOVE her from the Bachelor). I think I need a reality TV intervention. Ha :) 

2. I LOVE the smell of gasoline at gas stations. I've loved it ever since I've been a kid and still do today :)

3. I cannot go to bed unless my feet are freshly cleaned. Every night before bed, I have to clean my feet (unless I just got out of the shower) or else I cannot go to sleep. Clean feet = Happy Sleep :)

4.My coffee cup, sleeve, and lid must all match before I can take a drink If I go to Starbucks (or wherever)  and all 3 don't line up correctly, I cannot take a sip until they do. I will sometimes pull over in the parking lot of a coffee place and re-align everything or else it will sit in my car and get cold b/c I just cant bring myself to drink it. Weird, I know :)

5. I was once a finalist to be on the game show Deal or No Deal Back in 2006, they came to our city to do a local casting call. There were some 10,000 people that waited in line for hours and tried out and I was one of 30 that was called back to meet with the producers and such! I didnt make it on the show (they only selected 1 from the area), but it was still fun!

I'm passing along the Award to the following blogs :

Allyson over at Cupcake and CandyCanes (we've never met, but she's a fellow bride to be and  her blog is great) 

Mae Mae over at Two Hoots and a Holler (we lived together during college one summer in FL and her and her hubs are in the process of adopting a sweet baby girl from Ethopia-love her)

Katie over at Hems for Her (we've never met either, but shes a fellow teacher and bargain shopper)

Bethany over at Bought As Is (we grew up together- she's battling some illnesses lately; her faith and strength is AMAZING; be sure to visit her site and send her some well wishes)

Andrea over at Imaginary Friends (we also grew up together and share lots of memories)
