Liebster Award: Answers and Nominations

I am very excited that I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Emily at Emily Eats and Runs. For those of you who are not familiar with the Liebster Award, here’s what’s involved:

  • Write 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you.
  • Create 11 new questions.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers and mention them in your post.

11 Facts about me

  1. I went to the same school for 13 years.
  2. I’ve never broken a bone.
  3. But I’ve had four concussions.
  4. I have had chronic headaches for as long as I can remember. Although I almost never throw up normally, the exceptions are when I get migraines.
  5. I enjoy raisins plain, but I hate when they’ve been baked.
  6. I’ve enjoyed a lifelong love affair with Paul Simon and his music.

    we're very committed to each other.

    we’re very committed to each other.

  7. I love milk chocolate, but dark chocolate doesn’t really do it for me.
  8. I am allergic to capsaicin, the molecule that makes things like black pepper, hot peppers, and chilles spicy. For a long time I thought I just didn’t like spicy foods, but I can’t get enough of things like mustard and wasabi.
  9. I have a dimple on the right side but not the left.
  10. I took ballroom dancing classes when I was in middle school.
  11. I can do a backbend.

Questions from Emily

  1. Do you prefer coffee or tea? A tough question; I love them both. I think I prefer the taste of tea, but coffee is more or less my life source.
  2. Would you rather be a guest at a party or the host? Absolutely a guest. I hate hosting.
  3. When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up? The first woman president or a gymnast. (pretty embarrassing to admit…)
  4. What would your last meal be? Probably lobster with white pasta and butter. Afterward, chocolate bread pudding.
  5. Do you have any siblings? Yes, I have two amazing and beautiful older sisters!

    At my college graduation.

    At my college graduation. Yes, I know, we look quite alike.

  6. What’s your dream vacation? To move to London and never come back but magically not need to make money. I guess this is more “Dream Lifestyle” than dream vacation.
  7. If you could live in another country, where would you live? I guess I answered that above; in England (London).
  8. What are three websites or blogs that you visit everyday? My wonderful friend Sara’s blog (she is the most supreme writer), Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, and Natalie Dee. The last two are webcomics. I read a lot of other webcomics that don’t update every day and I read a lot of other blogs that don’t update every day–mostly people who I’ll nominate below.
  9. What is your favorite season? The fall. Not even close.
  10. Are you an introvert or an extrovert? I’m honestly not sure anymore. I think I fall pretty evenly down the center. I am very social and enjoy talking to people, but I usually crave alone time. I was very introverted in college, but I’ve gotten more comfortable spending large quantities of time around other people.
  11. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Coffee ice cream with oreos.
