Liebster Liebster who's your peepster?!?!

So... I am super duper stoked to be apart of this, I found out that I was nominated for the Liebster Award! 

I was nominated by Elsha Bodily over at the, 'When Mine Became Ours' Blog. She has such great style, and is always one to keep your eye on for what to wear, and she is funny which is a must in my book. You can check her awesomeness out HERE.

The Liebster Award “is all about discovering blogs and helping those with less than 200 followers to get recognized.”
The rules:
1.  Post 11 things about yourself.
2.  Answer the 11 questions the ' tagger ' has set for you.
3.  Create 11 more questions for the bloggers you will tag.
4.  Then choose 11 bloggers ( or 9??) with less than 200 followers and tag them in your post.
5.  These lucky bloggers must then be told.

So here we go!  11 fun little factoids about myself... 

1. I was born in Provo Utah but grew up in Oregon, right outside Portland, since I was 4. Oh Portland, how I miss so much about you...

2.  I got my Bachelors in Dance a year ago from BYU-Idaho. 
Me dancing it up at college, grad pics...

Before that I went to a community college in Oregon, and got certified to be a Dental Assistant. I worked as one for 3 years, in Oregon and Idaho. I have seen some crazy stuff inside mouths...wish I could erase some of those images...yuck.

Me at work when I was a dental assistant with a patient

just after I had fillings done. Half my face is still numb. :)

3.) I learned to drive on a stick shift, In my high school parking lot, on a weekend :) 3,000,000 gazillion kills on that car...

4.) I am missing a tooth, and only within the last 3 years have had an implant put in. Previously, I had a fake tooth on a retainer, and would pull it out for Halloween costumes, or just to really freak people out ;)

5.) If I could go back to school again it would be for interior Design.

6.) I enjoy editing music and photos for fun in my spare time.
One I took of our little girl...
one I edited for fun for a school project. and yes...I am wearing a leo. haha

7.) When I was 7 months pregnant, I went clubbing in Canada with my bestie, and got hit on by a mondo nerd... Yes... I did the signature 'Baby Mama'  club tummy bump while dancing, and he reacted perfectly. He looked down at my baby bump, got all awkward, turned and walked away...FAST.. HAHAHAHA

8.) In Portland I took some trapeze and tumble/ stunt classes from Do Jump, and it was so fun, wish I could do it again.

9.) I LOVE HIP HOP. I love my ghettoblaster, my little high top shoe collection, and Hip Hop is my favorite kind of dance to perform. I was in a breakdance club in highschool, and spent my lunches practicing in the hallways. Kinda dorky I know. In college I was in a few battles with my hip hop crew, and attended lots of weekly battles, and cyphers. What can I say, me and Hip Hop, we get each other...

Me and my two friends from our crew...

 Doing a Holla back....:) what what!!!

Haha loving my boom box...

10.) I was born with galactacemia, a rare gene defect making it so I couldn't have milk anything. I outgrew a lot of the symptoms,and was able to drink milk. After my C- Section with my baby things changed and no milk for me again :(  Which sucks because I REALLY REALLY like milk. Especially chocolate.... I toasted with it at my wedding:)

11.) Lastly, I can pogostick,  for as long as you like, and without hands if you please ;)

Whew.. Well there it is, now for Elsha's Questions:

1. What is your fav thing to do to relax? 
Listen to music while walking, or hanging out in the pool.

2. Celebrity crush?
 Matt Bomer is not too bad:) White Collar... but a little too skinny for my taste... I like a little more meat.

3. Special skill you wish you had?
 Musical talents.. Either cello or singing.

4. In honor of the Olympics, what sport would you dominate at if you were a super-human?
hmmm.. I really like rhythmic gymnastics. You gotta be super human to do half that stuff anyways;)

5. Dream location to live?
dunno.. somewhere that is about 70 degrees most of the year, and has fall as the longest season? I love fall. Oh and lots of sunny sunshine.

6. Pet peeves?
loud chewers, one-uppers, and when people are oblivious to how loudley are talking, and they are practically yelling.

7. Do you have a worst date story?
Well... One time while waiting for my date to show up I fell asleep, he had to wake me up. Then later in the date I fell down a set of stairs in a skirt, and in front of a huge group of people.... and I had a Maryln Monroe moment, with not my cutest undies on. Then towards the end of the date, I drop my purse into a fountain, and had to carry a wet bag for the rest of the night. I guess all in all, it turned out ok, because I ended up marrying him and now we laugh about it. In the moment though I was super embarrassed.

8. What is your favorite blog and inspiration source?
I don't have just one, seriously. I follow lots of different kinds of blogs. Some I like because they inspire me with their awesome craftiness, and home decor. A few others, are for fashion stuff, and then, I have a few that are friends of mine and I just like to keep up with what is going on in their lives. I am inspired by all of them...

9. Are you a brand snob?
Ba-hahahaha... not even close. I buy everything at thrift stores, if I like how it fits and looks, that is my kinda brand.

10. In your opinion, what is the best movie ever made?
 Baby Mama, or Princess Bride are my most quoted for sure.

11. What color are you currently obsessed with?
easy. Grey, any shade.

The pics of you dancing are awesome. I will trade you my musical talent for your dance skills.

I appreciate the nomination but I just did this not to long ago and couldnt try to come up with another 11 random things if I tried.

I will return your shout out though. Thanks.
