Eleven is a Lucky Number

I mentioned in a previous post that I really needed some new glasses. Well, I finally got them. 

I'm loving my new Michael Kors specs (please pardon the selfie). I'll admit I look particularly nerdy but then again, I am pretty nerdy anyway, so they fit my personality. 

Michael Kors, buy here
In other news;

I am beyond honored that Effie Girl nominated me for a Liebster Award. The award is geared toward bloggers with 200 or less followers. Each nominee is tasked with choosing 11 more bloggers to nominate for the award. That's the easy part :)

Then you have to list 11 random facts about yourself, write 11 random questions for your nominees and answer the 11 questions given to you when you were nominated. So without further ado, here goes:

Random Facts About Myself:
  1. I've always secretly wanted to be a ballroom dancer but I've never taken a real dance class in my life (and I have no rhythm)
  2. I drink two cups of coffee each morning 
  3. I hate applying makeup
  4. I love to cook but I feel like I have no time to do it during the week
  5. I'm attempting to grow some veggies (I don't have a green thumb) and I've successfully harvested several jalapeños
  6. I don't like jalapeños
  7. I am very proud to be from Ohio
  8. I wish I had a dog
  9. I work in advertising 
  10. I never got sent detention in high school 
  11. I hate odd numbers but I seem to like multiples of 3 (really random I know)
Questions from Effie Girl:

1.  Do you still live in the town you grew up in? 
Nope. I grew up in Ohio and now I live in Georgia.

2.  Where is the furthest you've ever traveled? 
Europe, I guess Croatia would technically be the furthest, but it could be Hawaii. I haven't compared the distances. 

3.  Brad Pitt or Ben Affleck? 
Brad Pitt, no question

4.  Have you ever met a celebrity and conversed with them? (not just a sighting or wave) 
I was on a cruise with Maria Sorvino but I wouldn't call it an extensive conversation.

5.  What is the strangest talent you have? 
I'm not very good with street names but if I've been somewhere once I can almost always navigate my way back even if it's been years since I was there. 

6.  If you had the chance, what would you change about yourself? 
Unfortunately there are too many things that I'd like to include and I think that is my answer. I'd like to change my attitude about my own personal appearance. I'd like to be more appreciative of what I'm working with. 

7.  What is your favorite movie? 
Hummm. Honestly I don't know. I like to watch a movie once then I'm kind of over it. 

8.  What food, (not dessert) could you eat every single day for dinner? 
Hummus = so so good 

9.  Do you think you are a good driver? 
Yep. But doesn't everyone?

10. What was your favorite toy when you were little? 
My blankey. That deserves an entire post all to itself. 

11. How many hours per day, do you blog? (write, read, and comment) 
Not as many as I'd like 1.5 hours 3-4 days a week. 

Questions for nominees:
  1. Salty or Sweet?
  2. Name one of your blessings this week?
  3. How did you name your blog?
  4. What's your favorite color?
  5. What was your favorite childhood board game?
  6. Cats or dogs?
  7. What's your most memorable high school moment?
  8. Describe your dream date.
  9. If you could drive any vehicle, what would it be?
  10. What's your guilt pleasure?
  11. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
