Libester Blog Award!

Over the busy Thanksgiving Holiday I was nominated for a Libester Award thanks to the Realistic Teacher! I was beyond EXCITED when I read her post that she had nominated me! She is too sweet and I'm so flattered! Here are the rules!
The Libester Award is given by bloggers to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. It's to show that new bloggers are appreciated and help spread the word about our little piece to cyber space.
Here are the rules:
1.You must post 11 random things about yourself.
2. Answer the questions that the nominator set for you.
3. Create 11 questions for the people you nominate.
4.Choose 11 other blogs with less than 200 followers to nominate and link them to your post.
5. You cannot "tag back" the other blog, but leave a comment on this post with the URL of your Liebster post so I can learn more about you and see who you nominate.
11 rAnDoM fAcTs about me!
1. I am super crafty! I love to shop around garage sales, thrift stores, and other places, find something that someone else thinks is junk, and turn it into a treasure!
2. I also own my own jewelry company called "Back at the Ranch". I make jewelry that's funky, chunky, and a little bit junky! I love anything BLINGY AND SPARKLY!
3. I'm a total country girl and grew up around rodeo BUT I did competitive cheerleading for 16 years. I also cheered in college. Most people who meet me now would NEVER guess that about me.
4. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Dr. Pepper!
5. I'm currently in a  long distance relationship. Jared and I have been together 10 months but been best friends for the past 2 years. He lives 3 1/2 hours so we swap out weekends coming to see each other. It's a lot of work but definitely worth it. He's fantastic!
6. I enjoy working out! I know I must be crazy! My goal is to run in a half marathon one day.
 7. My favorite TV show is Grey's Anatomy. I'm addicted! I also like Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother and reality TV such as The Voice, Ducky Dynasty, and anything on TLC or HGTV!
8. I just recently made the switch from having an iPhone to the Samsung Galaxy S III. I've been given a lot of grief for no longer being an apple user but I'm just gonna say it...I LOVE this phone WAY better than my iPhone!
9. I really love to read even though I don't get to as often as I'd like. I got a Kindle Fire for my last birthday so I'm really enjoying that.
10. I love to travel! I've seen 16 states and have been to Mexico and Canada. My dream is to see Ireland, Italy and Germany.
11. Coming up with 11 random things is harder than you think...thinking...thinking...thinking...I've had to teach myself to cook oer the last few years. I use to be TERRIBLE at it but I've gotten a lot better. Its not something that I enjoy so thank goodness for my crockpot!! :)

Here are my 11 questions that I was asked!
1. What is your favorite genre? Does this mean book? Music? I like to read cheesy romance novels (Love me some Nicholas Sparks). I really like all types from mystery, to biographies! I’ll admit that I’m a Twilight Saga and Hunger games fan!
2. Do you parallel park or find another spot? I’ll admit that I have never parallel parked! I’ve never had too. I’ve never lived in the big city except for when I was going to school at Texas Tech in Lubbock and I never had to there.
3. Do you have any tattoos? How many? Of what? None. I’m not a tattoo person.
4.What is your favorite book? The Bible! & Anything by Nicholas Sparks.
5.When did you last laugh?  A few minutes ago at my dog Dakota. She is SILLY!!!
6. Where have you traveled and what was your favorite place? Whoops! I put this in my 11 random facts! I’ve been to 16 states and 2 other countries. My favorite so far has been my road trip to Vegas. We stopped at the Grand Canyon along the way and a ton of road side shops along the way! Plus I just LOVE VEGAS!
7. Do you like to dance? YES! YES! YES!
8. What is your favorite type of music? Texas Country (if you live in Texas or other southern states you’ll know what this is) My favorite artist is Wade Bowen. I'm also OBESSED with Miranda Lambert! I really think we could be BFFs! I love country in general. I’m going to the KING George Strait on his final tour in 2013! I can’t wait! I also enjoy,  pop, rap, alternative, and Christian.
9.Have you ever, or would you ever, go skydiving or bungee jumping? I want to go skydiving soooooo bad! Another bucket list item. I don’t think I would ever bungee jump though. I’ve done the bungee at six flagsdoes that count?!?
10. Do you garden? No! I do not have a green thumb. :(
11. If you could eat lunch with a favorite person who would it be? I know most people would probably say some sort of celebritybut I would say my granddad. He passed away over a year ago and I miss him so much. He was my hero. BUT if I had to pick a celebrity I’d definitely pick Channing Tatum. Who wouldn’t wanna eat lunch with him?!?!?!
Here are the blogs I'm nominating!
