Liebster Award

Happy Friday!!!
{edited: I am a day ahead... oops was up all night with my dog...}
Happy Thursday!!! LOL
In the blogging world, the Liebster Award is a fun little way to help your blog get noticed and learn new things about each other. I would like to thank my new friend Courtney from Dress Up and Twirl for nominating my blog.
The Liebster Blog Award Rules:
  1. Share 11 things about yourself
  2. Answer the 11 questions given to you
  3. Choose 11 fellow blogs to nominate {or how ever many you'd like}. The nominees must have under 200 GFC (google friend connect) followers and tell them in a comment on their blog
  4. Think of eleven questions to ask the bloggers you have decided to nominate
  5. Thank the person that nominated you and link back to their blog 

11 Things About Me...
  1. I wash my makeup off EVERY single night
  2. I eat egg whites and oatmeal 360 mornings a year for breakfast
  3. I talk to my sister and best friend EVERY day
  4. I am the oldest of three even though people think my sister is {guess its because she's already having her 3rd baby-don't 3 dogs count for something?}
  5. I am over 6 feet tall with heels on
  6. My favorite animal is a Unicorn Horse
  7. I won my first figure competition out of 16 girls, my first time on stage after 16 weeks of strict dieting. I didn't even know I won until they kept calling my number and I looked down and was like "oh my that's me" LOL
  8. I grew up in the country-cutting firewood, lived on a dirt road, walked to a school bus stop for all my school life, had horses, dirt bikes and well water that turned blonde hair a funny color
  9. I wish I was born with airbrush-tanned-skin. Heaven.
  10. I do hair by day and seriously think of all my clients as friends. I am blessed to go to work and hang out with friends all day-every day
  11. I make the best cornbread!!
  12. Ok one more... My 16 year old step daughter is now my chauffeur {such a crazy feeling to have a 16 year old that was once a little 6 year old now with your life in their hands-she's amazing}
