Liebster Award Nomination

I've been nominated! I love when someone thinks enough of my little 'ol blog and nominates me! It's a nice perk of connecting with people through blogging. I'm surprised by how many people I've gotten to know through And Baby Makes 10.
Sarah over at from TX Wife to Mama nominated me for the Liebster Award.

This award is given to new or up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers...the award is then passed along to other bloggers in the same category to help spread the word and support one another.
If you receive the award, there are a few rules to follow...
1) Each blogger nominated must post 11 things about themselves
2) Then answer the 11 questions the tagger has asked
3)Blogger must then create 11 questions of their own to ask the bloggers they decide to nominate
4) They must choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers to nominate
and link them on their blog post
5)Bloggers must be notified of their award!
6) No tag backs!
11 Things About Me
1) I think being a SAHM means you should bake and complete a craft on a weekly basis.
Am I wrong or just crazy?
2) I want Connor to be an only child.
3) I love getting the mail from the mailbox. When James beats me to it, it makes me a little sad.
4) I use BOTH my Vera Bradley planner and my Kindle Fire to keep myself organized.
5) I plan on continuing my love for Buckeye and Bengals football while living in Texas.
6) I never paint my nails. I prefer a natural fingernail.
7)  I shop for Christmas all year long. Sometimes, I have too much stuff
and no one to gift it to.
8) I watch more TV shows based on murder than anything else. By now, I could easily get away with the perfect murder (that makes me sound creepy, doesn't it?).
9) My best friend is a 2 year old. She is just fabulous and you would be here BFF, too, if you had the chance.
10) I have a grandparent complex. I am jealous of anyone who has grandparents.
11) I have a soft spot for older men.
Questions from Sarah
1. What do you hope your life will look like in 10 years? I would like to be settled in our dream home and back to work. I plan on being a SAHM for a while but would like to go back to work when Connor goes to school full time.
2. What is your favorite movie? Gone With The Wind. All-time favorite. Nothing compares.
3. If you were stranded on an island, what 3 items would you bring? Chapstick, water and a camera.
4. What is your favorite hobby? I can't pick just one - lately, I've been baking, crafty and blogging when I have free time (mostly during nap time). It's been nice since I'm home with a 1 month old.
5. If you could meet any person (alive or dead) who would it be and why? 1969 Elvis. That is when he was hottest. I have always loved him. Remember, soft spot for older men. And I'm pretty sure I would make him fall in love with me. Or at least throw myself at him, in hopes of him loving me.
6. Where is your favorite place to shop for you and/or your little one? I prefer to shop at Kohl's or Old Navy. I have to shop at the GAP for jeans. I can get Connor clothes just about anywhere since he is so little. I find the best prices at Kohl's.
7. Do you make anything? If so, tell us about it.
I made a baby, does that count? HA! I won't go into details there but I am currently working on my first Pinterest inspired craft and should have it finished today or tomorrow.
8. Who is your biggest inspiration? My mom. She had me when she was 16 and raised me and my brother by herself until she meet my father. She put herself through nursing school while working 3rd shift and gave me and the boys the best life ever. She has been so strong and giving. She is an amazing mom, wife and Mamaw. I couldn't imagine my life with any other Momma.
9. If you could meet any blogger, which blogger would you choose? I'd like to meet Laura over at Moments With The Mays. She is a Mom to 2 adorable little boys and she has it together! I think I could learn a lot from her about being a SAHM.
10. What is the chore you wish you never had to do? Cleaning the tub and I DON'T. That is the one thing I ask James to do. I just hate it and can't seem to get it clean enough. It really just needs a man's elbow grease!
11. What is your favorite meal to make? Sharp Cheddar Lasagna Made Over; it's easy and so tasty!
Questions For My Nominees
1) What is the last book you read? What book?
2) When was the last time you bought yourself something? And what did you buy?
3) What was the last piece of snail mail you received (bills and junk mail don't count)?
4) What famous person do you share you birthday with?
5) Favorite Christmas tradition?
6) How did your parents choose your name? Were you named after anyone?
7) What is your computer or cell phone wallpaper/background?
8) When are you going on your next vacation? Where are you going?
9) How many candles were on your last birthday cake?
