Awards Night

This is like the 5th time I've been nominated, or awarded, or whatever with this Liebster thing. The first time I played along and did it, the others I didn't, but since this one is coming from Sarah @ A Buckeye in Bagerland I'm going to be a good sport. Not just because she's a fellow Buckeye fan but also because she has one awesome blog that everyone should follow! so after you're done reading another amazing post by me, go check out Sarah's blog.. and while your at it, check out my other followers too cause they're the bomb diggity! yes, I just said bomb diggity.

wait there's rules for this?? okay, okay...
1:: post 11 random facts about yourself
2:: answer the questions the blogger who nominated set for you, then create 11 new questions for the blogger you pass the award to
3:: choose 11 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them to this post
4:: go to their page and tell them about the award
5:: no tag backs

eleven facts::
1- I'm so glad I started blogging, cudos to Melissa for that one. I've met some pretty awesome people.
2- I've seen Brad Paisley in concert four times; Mr. McGraw three times; KChes twice; The Band Perry twice; Toby Keith twice; Keith Urban, Gary Allan, Blake Shelton, Jarrod Neimen, Brantley Gilbert, Darius Rucker, Justin Moore, Scotty McCreery, Love&Theft, Jennifer Nettles, Sammy Hagar, Jake Owen, Eric Church, LukeB, and JAldean  all once. I think that's everyone.
3- I once t-boned a car, completely my fault -I somehow did not see them coming. They were illegal immigrants, and later got deported. (Czechoslovakian, cause I know you're all wondering.)
4-  "I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the think I like most, to laugh"

5- I love a good competition. 
6- I've been out of the country 16 times, 15 of those times I traveled to Canada.. more specifically, Niagara Falls. The other time was a cruise when I was about 8 or so.
7- I throw movie quotes into everyday convos.
8- The first year I coached volleyball we went undefeated 16-0, the second year we went 9-7, as a coach I'm 25-7, not too shabby.
9- I'm not a big shopper, I don't like spending money on myself, but I lovelovelove Black Friday shopping. I look forward to it every year. and I'm damn good at it (my cousin and I once were in and out of Toys R Us in 7min. with a cart filled to the top with items.)
10- I've had:: double jaw surgery, knee surgery, impacted teeth surgery, a minor facial bone chipped away, 8 sprained ankles, a sprained thumb, a minor cut in my eye, and fractured my growth plate. I'm just a whole mess.
11- When I fractured my growth plate, I was sled ridding. I went down my deck stairs standing on my sled (yes I brought the injury upon myself), and hit the corner of a wooden step so hard right underneath my knee cap that I fractured my growth plate. however, I didn't do anything about it until a year later when the area of skin was still black/blue. I finally went to see a knee specialist a year later whom told me that I had infact fractured my growth plate and it healed back together on its own.

questions Sarah asked::

1:: What's your favorite dessert?
      that's a tough one, I lovelovelove sweets. cookies, cakes, ice cream, cupcakes, you name it. but my biggest weakness is... ice cream. really any kind will do, but moose tracks, or mint chocolate chip are my two favorites.
2:: What did you think about the ending to Lost?
       I didn't watch Lost. I know, I know. sorry. 
3:: What's your favorite talk show?
       Ellen Degeneres. I think she's hilarious, and she helps a ton of people which I think is awesome.
4:: Tell me a joke.
       Why are ghosts bad liars? Because... you can see right through them! #classicjoketuesday
5:: What is something you believe in?
        God and the power He has. always do the right thing. guardian angels.
6:: What is something you don't believe in?
       giving up on yourself. and ghosts.
7:: Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts (or some other coffee chain)?
       Beans Coffee Shop! or my keuring... although I'm not a huge coffee drinker.
8:: Do you wear leggings as pants?
9:: What would you eat as your last meal?
       well, that depends. when I couldn't eat for 6 weeks my last meal was a big juicy hamburger. however, if you're talking last meal ever, of my whole life, it'd be close between Skyline Chili and my classic American hamburger. probs have to go with the Skyline though.
10:: What is something you are obsessed with?
         twitter. facebook. pinterest. making lists. movies/tv/music.
11:: Do you have a loyalty to a certain brand?
         I usually stick with Nike for shoes, a lot of Nike clothes. my Dad works at Nestle so we try to support Nestle products and Stouffers. my Mom basically only buys Tide and Downy for laundry. but I think that's pretty much it.
