3 Liebster Awards!

It's Freakin Friday People!! We made it!

Sorry for my later post today but I am f ing hung the f over! I may have had one three drinks at the show which then were followed by two more. Yes I had 5 drinks! And I am regretting it today! But Spank was so  good! I was laughing the entire time. There were also a mix between older and younger people I even saw some people in their 70s there. Way to go for them! haha They have tour dates so go check them out! It's a 50 shades of grey parody so it will help if you have read at least the first book.

Ladies I have been nominated for THREE Liebster awards! I am sooo excited!

The rules of the Liebster Award:

The nominee must list 11 facts about themselves
The nominee must answer the 11 questions the nominator asked
The nominee must nominate 11 other bloggers with fewer than 200 followers

Here we go!
And just to give you a heads up the alignment is all wrong there are spaces where there shouldn't be and its not very reader friendly but I couldn't for the life of me figure it out!

First up is 11 facts about myself
1. I am obsessed with Sex and the City. Yes I know it ended nine years ago but I can watch the episodes over and over again
2. I live for sushi, mexican food and chicken fingers. I tend to a very predictable person and order the same things. Hey I know what I like!
3. My doggie Lola is my life. I often find myself having converstations with her when I'm alone. She's my snuggle buddy.
4. My college boyfriend taught me how to do to laundry and how to start a dishwasher. Yes I was spoiled haha
5. I am obsessed with Christmas. The lights, the decorations, the music, the movies, the snow you name it I love everything about it!
6. I am TERRIFIED of socks ( yes this a tough one to admit) I never ever wear them I am always barefoot except I can wear those fuzzy socks and I wear socks with my tennis shoes ( that I only wear to work out in) and when I take my shoes off the socks come off. I hate them and if you chased me around with them I would probably cry. no joke.
7. I have tried mulitple times but I do not like beer. I can do bud light lime if I have had a drink or two but I like liquor better.
8. My parents waited 8 years after marriage to have me and another 6 years to have my brother. No reason given haha
9. I have a younger brother. He is 18. He is graduating high school this year and I'm really sad about it. I don't like change.
10. I'm superstitous. I do the same things in the same order everyday like drive the same route to work get ready in the same order. If I change it up and something bad happens that day I'll blame it on the fact that I switched up my routine.
11. I first saw the movie THe RING in 7th grade and it terrified me. I still have nightmares about it to this day.
First up Is      Katie
  1. Why did you start blogging?
    In august 2012 I came across Mama Laughlin’s blog through pinterest randomly. I then started clicking around and found a whole community of women who were connecting from all over and empowering each other to reach their goals and dreams. It was because of this that I got up and started doing something about my unhappy weight. I then decided after a few months that others could learn from me as well. That I also had something to say. And to hold myself accountable to reach my goals. And the rest is history J
