»Liebster Award!«

This is a bit out of the blue. I was recently nominated for a Liebster Award by Ashley over at Twe1ve2. Thanks so much for nominating me! I guess if you've been around the internet long enough most bloggers have seen this before, but I've never been nominated. I honestly didn't mean for a week to pass by before I posted it, but que sera sera. 

Here are the set of rules that we're playing with today: 
  1. Post 11 facts about yourself. 
  2. Answer the 11 questions provided by the person who nominated you and then create an 11-question set for the next group of nominees.
  3. Choose up to 11 (or more or less depends on the rules you follow) bloggers to nominate and link them in the post!
  4. Let your nominees know that they've been tagged and no tag-backs!
  5. Nominate blogs under 200 followers.

❥ I have epilepsy. But I think I'm growing out of it. Hopefully I may be able to come off my medications. 
❥ Because I can be really sensitive to light, I sleep with an eye mask every night. 
❥ I have my ears pierced 3 times and I mostly wear captive ball rings in my ears, but I wish I had better earrings. I can't just go out and get new earrings because my ears are highly sensitive, so I either have to wear gold or surgical steel. 
❥ I currently have 692 songs in my iPhone. My favorite song on there is currently Vegas Lights by Panic! at the Disco. 
❥ Murphy is a family name on my Mother's side and I've always loved it for some strange reason. I think it was because someone in the family said years ago that if I had been a boy I would have ended up as Murphy. I think if I was to ever get a boy dog, I'd name him Murphy. 
❥ I love taxidermy. It sounds really strange, but I just love it. Especially deer and shark taxiderby. I know that its a pipe dream, but I would love to own a shoulder mount albino or white buck. But those are pretty rare. It will probably never happen.
❥ Whenever I cook, I probably the most messiest person ever. I never make messes on purpose, but some how they always end up happening. 
❥ I only have 3 types of shoes that I like. Tom's, Boots or Sandals. Any other kind of shoe just annoy me for some reason. I also can't stand socks unless I have to wear them with boots. I'd prefer to be barefoot anywhere.
❥ I can't really set a time to write something. It has to come naturally for me. Because realistically, I'm have a hard time coming up with facts about myself.
❥ Most of my favorite foods have shrimp or scallops in them. I will never say no to either of them. I also really like roasted oysters.
❥ I drive with my toes. If I drive, I try to drive with a shoe that I can easily take on and off because of this. My dad used to harp on me when he would teach me how to drive stick shift because the truck we were driving would get super hot on the floor boards.

❥ What is your favorite food? Like I touched in the 11 random facts, I like shellfish. But I think my favorite thing to eat currently is a Shrimp and Scallops Burrito at a local Mexican joint. That is the best thing in the world currently. The mix of the shellfish, the spice and the zest, plus the side of chips and salsa? Paradise.
How do you de-stress? Listening to music and belting out the lyrics along to the songs. Sometimes I even dance!
What scripture speaks the most to you? Honestly, I don't subscribe to any actual religion. Structured religion puts me off to no end and my own personal beliefs more in line with Paganism. Plus, honesty hour here, I think that the Bible has been changed way too much to be an accurate source of history and everything written in it should be taken with a spoon of salt. But I'm not going to dodge the question and I happen to enjoy the passage from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 in most of the translations.
Where do you get your ideas for new posts? Pinterest or other bloggers.
Cookies or Pie?  I'm very particular about both, but I happen to like more varieties of cookies than I do pie. I only really like apple pie, but I enjoy sugar cookies, peanut butter cookies, chocolate chip cookies, oreos, Girl Scout cookies. The list goes on.
What's your favorite movie? Jeeze, I love a lot of movies. But I can watch Avengers and Pacific Rim over and over. Also Tron Legacy.
What is your least favorite chore to do around the house? Anything that has to do with the bathroom. Bathrooms are gross.
What is your favorite hobby/activity to do in your spare time? Reading or playing video games. I'm very partial to Minecraft, Animal Crossing and Portal 2. And the Sims, but I haven't played it in a while because Sims 3 would crash my Mac, and Sims 4 might not come out for Mac.
Do you play or watch and sports? I don't play sports, but I love watching Yankees!Baseball, Rangers! Hockey, and USCGamecocks!Football. I like watching teams that I like.
Are you a country or city girl? I like to think of myself as a city girl that enjoys the country. Maybe I can call it being a Suburban girl, haha.
If you could describe yourself as any fruit, what would it be? Pineapple. Sweet but with acid tangy enough burn your tongue. Also with a spiky exterior.

  1. Thanks so much for the nomination! I'll have to think up some questions :)

    Thanks for the nom! I'll get it up sometime this week for sure. And I feel you on the messy cooker. I love cooking, but I hate, hate clean up because I usually leave everything in shambles. I love Sims, as well. I know Sims 4 is coming out for Mac, but there's no release date. We made my Mac so I can run Windows on it, since I'm a gamer but love my Mac :P. I will be playing some Sims 4 asap.

  3. Congrats! And thanks for the nomination :)

  4. Your welcome! I was making shrimp salad today and I made a complete mess of things. Like I used too many containers before I mixed my ingredients.

    I have a standard Mac. Like I didn't get any add on programs or have it run Windows. But what I've seen from the Sims 4 videos for CAS looks amazing and I cant wait to play it. I just wish there was a release date. Since there isn't one, I kind of feel like EA might just never put it out. But I'd be happy to wait on a game as long as it didn't behave like Sims 3 did and constantly crash.

  5. Your welcome! Trying to come up with the random facts about myself was actually the hard part for me.


Hey! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! I'll be sure to respond back to you as soon as possible!
