A Blog Award Nomination? Me???

So yeah...that happened yesterday.  Who even knows if this is true or not.  Probably not but it is still pretty cool that someone thought of me to nominate! Yay! :)  Thank you Die(t)ing to be a Skinny Bitch!!

The award is called the Liebster Award and it is for new or newish bloggers with less than 200 followers.  Pretty cool.  In order to win there are a few things I have to do (which makes me think this may not be legit. But hey...still kinda fun! And I get to nominate some of my fav bloggers)!

Here are the rules:

  • List 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
  • Choose 11 new bloggers to pass the award to and link them in your post.
  • Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
  • No tag backs!! 
Hmmmm....at least I can brighten someones day by nominating them like someone did to me! :)

So here we go:

11 Random Facts:
  1. I sometimes spend my rent money at the mall. Clothes, shoes, jewelry...you know...D) all of the above.
  2. I play hours upon hours of video games on xbox.  Sometimes I spend 8 hours straight just sitting and playing Call of Duty on xboxlive.  (And by 8 hours sometimes I mean 12).
  3. I bedazzled my xbox controller.  I may play boy games but I keep it girly.  
  4. American cheese scares me.  It is disgusting.  My sister used to chase me around the house with it and I would roll up in a ball and scream.  SO GROSS.
  5. I based my major in college off of a movie.  What Women Want inspired me to go into marketing because I wanted Mel Gibson's job and awesome Chicago apartment.  I don't regret the choice, I love what I do.  Now...to just get that Chicago apartment...
  6. I grew up as a tomboy with boys being my best friends.  Now I'm obsessed with makeup, high heels and get my nails done every 2 weeks.  Crazy how things change...
  7. I'm single at 28 and it secretly scares the crap out me.  Not so much a secret now...
  8. All of my best friends from college are from my sorority.
  9. I'm obsessed with social media and I have met some AMAZING people through it.  People who I can honestly call friends even though we've never met. 
  10. I really don't like kids...but I am OBSESSED with my nephew and soon to be niece   I also am IN LOVE with my friends kids. And I even want to have kids of my own someday. But strangers kids...not a fan.
