Liebster Award

 I got a Liebster Award, thank you Kelly at Kelly Mae Blog for the nomination!

This is such a cool idea! So the Liebster Award is making its way around the blogging community. Its basically a linky thing that gives you an opportunity to network with other bloggers. You have to have less 200 followers to recieve the award so its pretty cool that us smaller blogs get some lovin too!

The Rules:

{1} Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you.

{2} Choose 11 new bloggers to pass the award on to and link them in your post.

{3} Create 11 new questions for the chosen bloggers.

{4} Go back to their page and tell them about the award.

{5} Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.

{6} No tag-backs!!

My questions from Kelly....

{1} Did you play any sports in highschool?
       I played volleyball for a short while in 9th grade, then we moved and I was homeschooled the rest of my highschool years where I played softball on an intermural team.

{2} What made you smile today?
       It was a busy, busy day and my girls crashed when we got home. My youngest fell asleep right next to the dog beside me on the couch. Cutest thing ever watching your kids sleep!

{3} How many kids do you have or want?
      I have two girls of my own and my oldest stepson considers me the closest thing he's had to a real mom even though we are fairly close in age. I'm also so very blessed to have 4 other stepsons whom I love dearly. I'm pretty sure we are done having kids at this point, but I have to admit I get baby fever occasionally.

{4} Taco or burrito?
      Taco, I love the crunch.

{5} What is one word you would use to describe your life?
      I would have to say "blessed" I've been through some difficult times in life but I'm constantly reminded of how God has blessed me with so much.

{6} What kind of music do you listen to?
     Depends on my mood. I'm a big hard rock fan, and dubstep/rock mixes. Since I'm from the South I like to get my country on occasionally.

{7} What is the last thing you ate?
      A cupcake. Haley has been talking about cupcakes for weeks and we finally made some today!

{8} If you were stranded on an island with just a beach chair, what would be your drink of choice?
     I'm a Captain and coke girl.

{9} Are you a morning person or night owl?
     Definitely night owl! I'm trying to get up earlier and go to bed earlier though.

{10} Do you prefer hot weather or cold weather?
         I like it Hot!

{11} Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
         I'd like to be finished with law school and maybe even own a law firm. I'd also like to own several acres of land where we have a mini farm.
