Liebster Award, Take Two & Three!

I feel so lucky to have been nominated for a second Liebster award, and I was actually nominated twice in one week!!  Eeepp!  Liebster awards are for blogs with less than 200 followers and best of all, they are picked by fellow bloggers!

I was nominated for my first Libester back in November by Elizabeth from SouthernColor, and was nominated this time by Chrissy of Prayers&Pearls as well as by Nicole of Grub n Marriage.

The Rules:
1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
3. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 11 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.
5. Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award.
6. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog :)
I have to say my favorite part of doing this the first time was discovering new blogs and new bloggy friends!!
I'm only going to list 11 random facts.. I don't want to bore y'all with 22 random facts about me (and I even checked out my last 11 random facts so I won't duplicate).
1. I'm not 100% settled on my major..
2. I'm obsessed with Politics
3. I loooovvveeee beer.. and wine.. and whiskey
4. I text a lot (especially with Katelyn & Chelsee), but I still prefer a good old fashioned phone call.. especially from a boy.
5. I still send Thank You notes.. Almost Always.  I usually do them almost immediatly, but I haven't gotten my Christmas TY's sent out yet because I ordered new note cards and they haven't come in yet.
6. I'm a makeup snob and the only drugstore make up I use is my Revlon eyeliner.  Everything else comes from Ulta and Sephora.
7. I'm a reformed nail biter.
8. I always claim that I don't watch tv, but I mean that in the sense that I very rarely actually sit at home and watch tv.  I use Hulu & Netflix to watch my shows.  Who has time for all those commercials.
9. As much as I love to cook, sometimes I'd much rather eat cereal for dinner.
10. I have two tattoos.  One on my hip, one on my ribs. The on my hip is a sparrow, I got it like a month after I turned 18.. just cause I could? This is the other one:
The nautical stars represent every time I crossed the equator while I was in the Navy.
11. Receiving snail mail is my favorite thing ever.
Chrissy's Questions:
1. What were your New Years' Resolution?
I (like almost everyone) blogged about them! But then I took things a bit farther and posted the graphic that I made to go along with them on the blog so I can see it all the time.  So far, I've done really well with all of them!! Fingers crossed I can keep it up!
2. What is your favorite "junk" food?
Loaded Cheese Fries with Ranch dressing.. Sooooo good.
3. What is your favorite Pixar movie? 
Up! I am so obsessed with that movie.  It makes me cry everytime.  I love it.
4. What blogs are on your "daily must read" list?
The {Mrs.} Adventure's of a misplaced Belle
Prayer's and Pearls
Grub N Marriage
Splash of Whine      
5. Who is your celebrity look-a-like?
Idk!! Maybe a mix between Zooey Deshannel, Katy Perry and Reese Witherspoon (when she's a brunette)
6. What is your daily beauty routine?
Tinted moisturizer, blush, eyeshadow primer, eyeshadow, more eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, chapstick.
7. What is your number one blogging recommendation to bloggers just starting out? 
Stick with it.  At first, it will seem like no one is reading.  You'll feel like you're sending these random tidbits into the great unknown, but you're not. Someone is reading.  You never know how your story/life/post can affect someone. Also, Link parties are a great way to get new followers and find new blogs.
8. Long hair or short hair and why?
I've had both, and I much prefer my hair long. I have very thick naturally curly hair and short hair is not a great look for me. I'm working on growing my hair back out.  It's been a little bit past my shoulders for like two years now, and I want it loooooonnnnngggggg.
9. What is the last thing you bought?
 The last major purchase I made was a new KateSpade bag.  I have a brown one so I HAD to get a black one.. right? Exactly.
10. What is your go-to hairstyle?
 I usually curl my hair, and then it will usually end up in a ponytail at some point during the day.
11. What is your favorite soda? or tea or coffee?
  I mostly drink water, and sweet tea, when I do drink soda, it's Cheerwine.
Nicole's Questions:
1. If you could eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Probably Mac & Cheese, I LOVE me some Macaroni & Cheese

Mercedes GL450 SUV
with Diamond White Metallic exterior and grey leather interior.  20 inch wheels.

3. Share with us your favorite recipe.
4. What is one item you can't live a day without?
My Phone.. yeah, I'm that person.
5. What is the worst/funniest prank you pulled?
Calling my arch nemisis's mom and pretending to be from planned parenthood a la Mean Girls.  Of course I didn't stop there, I also went online and added her to the mailing lists of allllllllll sorts of maternity stores.  I'm sure she still gets mail from places like that.  I was quite the Mean Girl in high school.
6. Do you have any crazy date stories?
Um.. Yes. I had been seeing a guy and he wanted to take me out to dinner for my birthday (I flew back into town from a wedding earlier that day, so I was a weekend's worth of hungover and tired) and he took me to.. Wendy's.  No Wendy's is not a fancy smancy place here in podunk NC, Wendy's the fast food chain. He got me a frosty.  I was in shock.
7. If you could write one law, what would it be and why?
Mother in Law's must keep away from their new daughter in law.  No drop in's, No suprise two week visits. (I had a terrible MIL.. I don't even HATE my ex as much as I HATE my XMIL. All of my friend's also seem to have horrendous MIL's as well... Ugh.. I don't want another MIL unless she is of the sane variety.)
