awards! i must have made it big! so people do read my blog?

Bekah over at just american honey  gave me the "liebster award"!

Never heard of this award before? Unsure if it's a real thing or a real word! Me too! But apparently, The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. (Let's change that, yeah?) The Meaning; Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.
So, if that's true, I'm blushing, and thanks Bekah!

So here are the grizzly rules.

1. one must write eleven facts about themselves.
2. answer the questions the 'tagger' has set for you.
3. provide eleven new questions for the people you tag.
4. choose up to elven people and link them in your post.
5. inform the 'tagged' of this prestigious award.

Whew... 11 Facts: 
1. I get annoyed when people try to play music when other music is already playing. Conflicting sounds! 
2. Nerds are my favorite candy.
3. I don't like swimming. I never have. It just never sounds fun to me! It's a control issue, I think. 
4. I still remember the 7th Heaven theme song.
5. I once fell off my bike and fractured my arm, but the doctor didn't have any casts left so he told me just to be careful, and no one believed me.
6. I was bad at math until high school, when all of a sudden I got straight A's in math.
7. Writing has always been something I liked. I have a notebook full of surprisingly insightful songs, and a story about a princess who didn't know she was a princess and is in love with a curly haired man!
8. I have a thing for curly hair. It's because of Shia LaBeouf on Even Stevens.
9. I love when people call me on the phone.
10. Animal print scares me a little.
11. So do big muscles.

Bekah's Questions:
1. what is your ideal summer night? My idea summer night starts with being outside all day, and ends with popsicles in camp chairs at twilight, and star gazing until bed time.
2. snog, marry, murder: Neville Longbottom, Draco Malfoy, Ron Weasley? Oh man, murder?! I couldn't! But for the purposes of the game? Snog: Neville, Marry: Ron, Mur----place gently in prison! Malfoy.
3. who is your favorite disney prince and why? My most favorite Disney prince is Prince Adam (his real name!) from Beauty and the Beast. I like a man who may have a bit of a past, but changes for the better and shocks everyone with his big heart.
4. if you could leave on a roadtrip today, who would you go with and where would you go? I would go with my friend Lauren and we would go to California! California! California! (Garth and Kat from SNL)
5. if you could compete in one summer olympic sport what would it be? Either speed walking, or the one where they dance with ribbons.
6. what is the number one song on your summer playlist? PAYPHONE!
7. would you rather live on the east coast or the west coast? I am a west coast girl all the way. Although, I have never been east of Missouri, so, who really knows? I'll give it a chance.
8. what is that one tv show that you keep watching as a guilty pleasure? The Bachelor/Bachelorette. I'm sorry guys. The stupidity is hilarious to me. And my favorite part is when Chris Harrison comes up and says, "Emily, gentleman, this is the final rose." AS IF WE DIDN'T KNOW! It's just great stuff.
9. do you have a celebrity doppleganger? who is it? I have been told multiple times that I look like Maggie Gyllenhall. And then I am told with horror in other people's faces that no, Maggie is not a good doppleganger, she's the worst, and whoever said that was lying. But they said it... so I'm unsure.
10. what is one goal you want to accomplish in the next year? Run a half marathon. Change some kids lives. Two separate goals, but if they can be combined, that's cool too.
11. where would you buy your dream wardrobe?  Anyone who knows me well can probably guess... here... I'll give you some guessing time. .................... yeah, that's right! ANTHROPOLOGIE!

My Questions: 
1. If you had a time machine, where would you go and why?
2. Do you believe in dinosaurs?
3. Are you allergic to anything?
4. Favorite childhood tv show?
5. What is your happiest memory?
6. If you went to Hogwarts, what would be the thing you are most excited to learn about?
7. Who is the person you are closest to?
8. How many stamps are in your passport?
9. What is your resolution for tomorrow?
10. Who is the last person in your missed calls?
11. What do you want to buy?
