Nominated for a Blog Award!!!

I wanted to give a big shout out to Kendra from "Adventures of Brad & Kendra" for nominating me for my first real Blog Award!!!

I have been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award!! The Liebster Award is given to bloggers from fellow bloggers.  It is a great way to recognize us smaller blogs with under 200 followers in hopes of helping them grow even more.

I am so pleased to have been recognized and hope that I can gain more just makes a girl feel happy. That's all, end of story.
When you are nominated, you are to do each of the following:
  • Tell 11 random facts about yourself
  • Answer the 11 questions that the blogger who nominated you gave you to answer
  • Choose up to 11 other awesome blogs to nominate for the award
  • Come up with a list of 11 questions for your nominees to answer 

So here are my 11 random facts:

1. I have no sense of smell - seriously I cannot smell anything (well except for Icy Hot/Menthol).

2. I wanted to become a hair-dresser for my profession - but I was told I needed to go to college first and I found my passion for teaching.

3. I have never broken a bone in my body.

4. When I was five I dropped a mug on my big toe - I needed a needle to poke a hole to release the pressure - then my toenail fell off, I put it in a plastic sandwich bag under my pillow and I got $20 from the "Toenail Fairy".

5. I pretended that I was a mermaid like Ariel.

6. I chose to live in the All-Girl dorm in College.

7. I have never used a lawn mower in my life.

8. I grew up as a Hunter-Jumper and now jumping scares the life out of me - Western Pleasure all the way!!

9. I hate returning things in stores.

10. I don't know how to divide (I missed that day in school)

11. Incorrect grammar annoys the heck out of me - I always have to say the sentence correctly in my head before I can respond. (but I am sure I use it sometimes)
