Aww, shucks.

I just started following Katie over @ Dreaming in Lace and Pearls and have become a huge fan!  She so sweetly nominated me for a Liebster Award :)
The Liebster Award is a way to network with other bloggers with 200 or under followers.  Little ole' me is still in the 80s and hoping to push through to at least 100 soon. 

The rules of the Liebster are:
*Answer the 11 questions the blogger who nominated you asked you*
*Give 11 random facts about yourself*
*Nominate 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers*
*Create 11 questions for the nominees to answer*

Let's Rock n Roll, shall we?

How many siblings do you have?
The one and only, Michael Scott.  Best friends since birth... except maybe for the few years during childhood that I thought it was my job to torture him, lol.  Love ya, little bro.

What is your all time favorite television show?
Miss Carrie Bradshaw and the girls of course!

Where is the best place you have ever vacationed?
St. Lucia aka Heaven on Earth. We went there for our honeymoon, and it hurt to leave.  

What is your favorite room in your house?
Definitely our bedroom.  A big bed for all three of us to cuddle up in, watch a movie together, and relax, makes it my fav spot.

What are your three must have beauty products?
Waterproof masara.
Lip Gloss. Many varieties.
Concealer. Must have.

How did (if you have children) you pick their names, or what are your favorite baby names?
I have always been a lover of Gwen Stefani and just one day, while driving in the car, we played the baby name game.  Gwen was the only name that we both agreed on.  Then, we agreed to stop playing the name game and stick with that one.  Gwen was so short and didn't flow with the middle name we wanted Cynthia (my mom's name) so we decided that the name on her birth certificate would be Gwenyth Cynthia... but we only call her that when she's in trouble. :)

What is something that you have overcome this year?
I don't know that I have "overcome" it, but I have had to deal with death this year, and am surviving.  I've written about it so many times, but we lost a huge part of our family, my Pop, this year and it is an ongoing struggle.

What are your favorite places to shop?
Wherever there is a deal. Lol.  I love HomeGoods/TJ Maxx.  Big Macy's fan too. I just like to shop.  I don't discriminate on which stores. 

Where would you like to live if you ever had to move?
Somewhere warm, not insanely hot all year 'round.  And somewhere cheap(er).  NJ is so damn expensive.  But, I am almost positive that I would miss having actual seasons.  

What advice would you give your sixteen year old self?
I am actually working on a post right now that is a letter to 16 year old Sam, to be posted later this week hopefully.  Check back for it.

Why do you blog?
I started to blog because I was pregnant, had four sets of parents between the two of us, among tons of other family, and didn't want to tell the same stories and updates over and over again.  Then, I sort of fell in love with it.  I blog for an outlet.  I blog for a diary.  I blog to connect.  And well, I blog still so I don't have to tell the same stories, over and over again. ;)

11 Randoms About ME

1. Total germaphobe/hypochondriac.  Times ten.  With an unreal fear of needles/hospital/medicine.  I'm screwed.
2. Taught my self at the age of four to recite the alphabet backwards. Because I was bored.  Scared the shit out of my mother. Haha.
3. I can't dive.  Never learned.  Probably never will.
4. I am a reality tv-aholic.  Serious problem.
5. I'm lactose sensitive. (Hey, it's random)
6. My favorite candle scent is Clean Cotton.  Sun and Sand, close second.
7. Margherita Pizza is by far my fav.
8. I take my coffee with 1 Truvia.
9. I usually drink two cups each morning.
10. I am NOT a morning person. Hubs is.  Guess how much fun we are in the am?! 
11. Other than Oranges, I don't like anything orange flavored.  Anything.

So now, for my nominees...
I nominate you all.
Let's rock this out.

Here are my questions.

1. Vanilla or Chocolate?
2. All-time favorite movie quote?
3. What is the one food item you always have in your house?

5. What's your favorite day of the week and why?
