Liebster Blog Award

The Liebster Blog Award

Who doesn’t love an award? I received The Liebster Blog Award nomination from my friend and sister-in-law, Carly of Big House Little Table (http://www.bighouselittletable.blogspot.com/). What’s a Liebster Award you ask? Liebster is a German word meaning dearest, and the award is given to up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers who deserve some recognition and support to keep on blogging. Thanks for the nomination Carly!

Here are the rules should you choose to accept:
1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
3. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 5 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.
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.

So here it goes...

Eleven Facts About Me…
1) I have always lived in Arkansas my entire life and I love that fact!  I love calling the natural state home!
2) I married a Louisiana boy so I will admit, I do cheer for LSU (when they aren't playing the hogs!) and I'm slightly addicted to Johnny's Pizza!
3) I'm a full-time working mom and though I love my job and helping people with insurance, I would quite in the bat of an eye if I ever won the lottery!
4) I do not have one athletic bone in my body.
5) Believe it or not, I have 16 years of dance training under my belt.  I started dance when I was 2 and competed in dance a few years.  I took tap, ballet, jazz, clogging, hip-hop, lyrical, and clogging but was probably best at ballet.
6) I once dreamed of owning my own preschool and would still love to make that dream come true some day.
7) I am ADDICTED to sweets!  I never can turn icecream, cookies, or brownies down!
8) I am not going to lie- I'm a blog stalker and LOVE reading some of your blogs out there.  I really hope to become a better blogger myself because I love the blogger world!
9) I am legally blind!  Don't ever ask me to do ANYTHING if I don't have glasses on or contacts in!
10) I am a Kelly's Kids Sales Rep and LOVE represnting their company!  Check us out (www.kellyskids.com/brookehayes)
 11) There are few foods I dispise but I will NOT eat Tuna fish (gag!)
11 Questions Carly gave me…
1) If you could have any career in the world, with no limits, what would you be doing?
It's so hard to choose just one!... I would have to say at the top would be to be a Disney Princess at Disney World.  Who wouldn't want to be?!  Making children light up would be the best job ever!  I mean, maybeeee I could pull off Snow White or Belle?!  Another dream would be being a personal shopper!  I LOVE hunting down things and love shopping in general, so this would be my dream job! (Shallow, I know!)  I also love kids and would love any career having to do something with kids.
2) What would you say is your go-to recipe when you don’t have much time to think about dinner?
Crock-pot chicken tacos!  Chicken breasts, one jar of your favorite salsa, and a little bit of seasoning. Set it on low for 5 hours= life changing yumminess!
3) What is your favorite season? Hands down- FALL! I love that it's not too cold, I love fall clothes, and apple cider and hot chocolate are two of my favorites!
4) If your house was on fire and you only had time to grab 3 things, what would you grab?
I always hate this question!  They would not be things- it would have to be my hubbie, my Paisley, and my fur babies (that's a lot to carry!).
5) What is your favorite trend about today’s style/fashion and what is your least favorite trend?
My favorite trend right now is colored skinnies (jeans, pants, whatever- I LOVE!).  My least favorite would probably be neon things- I just can't rock those colors!
6) What is your favorite TV Show?
I can't pick just one!!...Right now I am obsessed with... The Voice, Modern Family, and Duck Dynasty.
7) Do you have a favorite makeup product or favorite hair care product?   I CAN'T live without my MAC lipglass.  I have several shades and I always need a little color on my lips. 
8) What is most important to you in life? My relationship with Jesus Christ.  Jesus is my rock and my strong hold.  If I didn't have my faith, I truely do not know where I would be.  He gives me my joy in life and I don't think I could face some days without knowing He was in my corner.
9) What is your favorite piece of jewelry and where did you get it?
Besides my wedding ring, I would have to say my knock-off J. Crew bauble necklace (Cliche these days but I love it!).  I have it in aqua, red, and pink because I love them so much!  I'll even let you in on a little secret- I got mine from ebay (cheap!).
10) If you could start a non-profit company, funding any cause you wish, what would yours be?
Adoption.  If you know me very well at all, I have a HUGE heart for orphans and adoption.  The non-profit I work the most with is Bethany Christian Services. I also love the work Shaohannah's Hope does and I have supported them before as well.
11) If you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would you choose to live?
Somewhere tropical.  I don't think I'm brave enough to live outside the U.S. for very long so maybe Hawaii :)  I love it there!
