Liebster Award :)

Award time!! Yeah! So Lindsay over at
Just Keep Teaching
nominated me for the Liebster Award!  



I am pretty excited about this because all Bloggers like recognition and I often wonder...am I writing to myself? Does anyone really see this? I get comments here and there but being a new Blogger - feedback is always great. So thanks Linds!! Of course I was wondering what exactly is this award?! So doing some research I found that this award is to recognize blogs with less than 200 followers & denotes the blog as one that is worth watching. Awww.. how sweet! To accept this award I have to do the following (and those I nominate will need to do the following as well):

1. Link back to the blog that nominated me
2. Nominate 5-11 blogs with fewer than 200 followers
3. Answer the questions posted for you by your nominator
4. Share 11 random facts about yourself
5. Create 11 questions for your nominees
6. Contact your nominees and let them know you nominated them

So here are my questions that Lindsay asked of me:
1. What is your favorite food EVER? 
My favorite food ever... it seems like everything right now is a favorite because I can only eat chicken, lettuce, veggies, turkey, fish, and drink water. This Clean Eating is much harder than I thought but the results have been awesome!

2. Have you ever gone on vacation somewhere you didn't want to come back from?
I just got back from Los Angeles on Wednesday and I LOVED it there. I could definitely see myself living there. 

3. What is your biggest accomplishment in life so far? 
I am fortunate enough to say that I have accomplished many things in my short 32 years. I would have to say that my biggest accomplishment is becoming an administrator after only being in the classroom for 5 years. Another big one is finishing all of my doctoral classes and working on my dissertation. The dissertation will completely trump both of these though when I complete it :)

4. If you had the choice to shop anywhere with unlimited budget- where would you go?
Coach - you can never go wrong with fabulous handbags.

5. What is your greatest piece of advice to new teachers?
Always be yourself. Don't be afraid to let the kids see glimpses of you as a person because they tend to relate better to teachers who they define as "real people". 

6. What did you want to be when you were little? 
I wanted to be an astronaut. 

7. What do you do in your spare time?
Spare time??!  Between writing a dissertation & being a high school administrator so spare time is not really in my vocab. When I do find that occasional down time, I blog, craft, sew (or try to), or watch LOTS of reality TV.

8. Mac or PC? 
MAC all the way!

9. Flying or driving? 
Fly.

10. One word to describe your personality.
Witty.

11 Random facts about me:
1. I still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.
2. I love baseball.
3. My craft room is the largest room in the entire house.
4. I love my dogs <3
5. I have had over 12 jobs.
6. I dye my hair ALL the time - usually always a different color.
7. I can't live without my iPhone.
8. If I could quit my job to be a full time photographer, I would in a heart beat.
9. I am the only one in my family with brown eyes.
10. I am a sick rapper.
11. I am horrible at math.


My questions for my nominees:
1. What is your dream job?
2. If you won the lottery but couldn't keep a dime, what would you do with the money?
3. iPhone or Android?
4. How long have you been blogging?
5. What inspired you to start blogging?
6. Health food or Junk Food?
7. Dream Car?
8. Favorite Blog?
9. Favorite color or pattern?
10. Dogs or Cats?
11. Last book you read?

And here are my nominees :) Each of these blogs I find great fitness advise, or just an interesting way to connect with other bloggers. I am fond of blogs written in a "real" voice and where your personality comes through. I would definitely stop by and leave them some love - they are some of my favorites :)
