Taggy Tag Tag

A nice young lady (I can say that because I'm all of what.. 2 years older..?) I went to high school with has a pretty interesting blog over at And So It Is, Just Like It Should Be. She has kindly given me a Liebster Award, which is this:

What is the Liebster Award?

The Liebster award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.

If I commented on your blog and directed you here, you have been given the Liebster Award as well! Congratulations to you!
The Liebster Award comes with one of those things where you get tagged in a post and feel obligated to answer the questions ;) I've never done one of these tag things on my blog, but I need something silly in my life right now. If I don't do this, I'm going to blog about how the Terrible Two's are just that, and KB isn't even two yet. It's been one of those weeks. Yes folks, weeks.

So anyway, there are rules, and here they are:


1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Then answer the questions the tagger sent for them, plus create 11 questions for the people they've tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Notify the people you have tagged.
5. No tag backs.

And now I am to give you 11 facts about yours truly. So here we go:

1. I'm trying to give up flavored non-dairy coffee creamer and it isn't going well. Why give it up, you ask? To that question I pose my own: What the H is it?? What is non-dairy creamer!? I mean, it's delicious, but....?
2. Katie has started gymnastics and it looks like I'm going to be one of *those* moms. I haven't put the decal on my car yet, so there is still hope.
3. I've decided that I officially hate working out at home. So go sit on it, Jillian and Bob. If you're not right beside me actually screaming in my ear, it's not going to work. Elliptical, here I come.
4. I was 12 during the 1996 Olympics, and it was the perfect age for a girl to be awed by a group of 7 girls who were just a little older than she was. I could probably still name most of the Magnificent 7.
5. Speaking of the Olympics, I'm convinced that I was British in a former life. I'm obsessed with all things English, and always have been.
6. I want to go back to work when the kids go to school.
7. To do that, I should probably get a higher degree, but I REALLY don't want to go back to school. EVER.
8. In fact, when I have stress dreams (know what I mean.. a stressful dream you have when you're really stressed out?), I am always either working at Region 8 as a Case Manager again or back in school.
9. I was ready for the heat of the South when we came back, but I was not prepared for the soaking humidity. All of a sudden I sweat for no reason!
10. I believe in fostering my children's independence and I don't ever want to be a Helicopter Mom who hovers.
11. I love cooking shows, and I love to cook, but I would never be creative enough to do my own show. "Watch how many vegetables I know how to fry!" would not be a good tag line.

Now I get to answer the questions that Terri posted on her blog.
1.What made you want to start blogging?
- Marrying someone in the Navy and moving to a tiny island I had never even heard of before I saw his orders.
2. What is your favorite Reality TV show?
- The Biggest Loser
3. Ryan Lochte or Michael Phelps?
 - Lochte is far more attractive. 
4. What state do you live in? 

 - Tennessee for now, but it's our 3rd home in 2 years.
5. What would your last meal be?

 - Something with life-sustaining power, obviously.
6. Where do you want to travel next?

 - In my dreams, London. In real life, either Oxford, New Orleans or Nashville for my birthday.
7. Do you like being in weddings?

 - Depends on the bride. I've had both good and bad experiences.
8. Have you ever had a famous moment?

 - Yep. I was walking into a Jackson bar one night during college, when a girl ran up to me and said "Aren't you Emily White?? You were my idol in high school!" I was like, "Whaaaat?" The good news is that I remembered her from high school, so I didn't think she was creepy. I thought it was so sweet!
9. What is one blog I should start following?

 -  Tribal Wife -  A couple I know from back home are missionaries to the tribes of Papua New Guinea. In Tribal Wife Jessi writes about the every-day struggles of being a missionary to a third world country while raising 3 daughters.
10. How long have you been reading my blog?

 - Since it started showing up on my Facebook news feed :)
11. What is your favorite workout?

 - Spinning, I think. 

Gracious.. now I need to come up with 11 questions of my own. Have mercy!

1. If your life was a reality show, what would it be called?
2. If you have an older child, how did you get through the Terrible Twos?
3. What is your coffee drink of choice? If you don't drink coffee, do you have a vice beverage?
4. Do you think school uniforms are a good idea? Why or why not?
5. What do you miss most about childhood?
6. Who takes out the trash in your house?
7. What chore do you hate the most?
8. What scent of body wash is in your shower right now?
9. What is your current obsession?
10. What is your sign? Are that sign's characteristics true to life for you?
11. How do you decompress after a long day/week/month?

And finally, I need to tag 11 bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers.
Everything From A 2 Z
An Attempt To Tip The Scales
And Then There Were Three
My Life
The Adventures of Cole and Stella
The Life of a Redditt
Proud Life of a Chief's Wife
Tribal Wife
The MisAdventures of Mrs. Duh
Wookie & Co
Life In The Place Of Man

Ok, changed my mind. I'm not tagging any of those blogs above.. I don't want any of you to send me cyber eye rolls! But above are 11 friends who have fewer than 200 followers. Check out what's going on in their worlds! Friends, if you would prefer that I remove your link, please just let me know. And if you do your own version of this silly little post, please let me know that, too!

And one more thing, can somebody tell me how the H to get rid of that white highlight all over the place? I can't figure it out! I'm such a dork sometimes..
