I've been nominated! Whooooooop!

I was beyond excited when I opened my email last week to find that A Tinge of Whimsy was nominating me for a award! 
You know,  a blogging award! Yaah! 
Totally made my day!

I've seen a few of these, but if you're being tagged and have never heard of it before:

here are the rules:
1) Each blogger nominated must post 11 things about themselves
2) Then answer the 11 questions the tagger has asked
3)Blogger must then create 11 questions of their own to ask the bloggers they decide to nominate
4) They must choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers to nominate and link them on their blog post
5)Bloggers must be notified of their award!
6) No tag backs!

Well, here we go! Sorry ahead of time if I ramble on and on and on! :)

1. I am absolutely terrified of the dark. especially if I'm in a basement and have to turn the lights off before I go upstairs.
I run so fast up the stairs you'd think the place was on fire.
Once I was running (literally as fast as I could) upstairs at our old house while holding Dane's heavy  mag flash light. Slipped and fell, and managed to give myself a black eye with the flash light.

2. my favorite color is glitter. and leopard! :)

3. I've had 10 cars in 9 years.
how is that possible??

4. I randomly blurt out the word "bitch". 
Am I calling you a bitch? Most likely NOT. I just say it.
At the tv,  people driving down the road, at McDonald's. Lol you name it.

5. I love my wine (moscato) on the rocks. (obviously)

6.  I love wearing heels. Even though most of my friends are shorter than me, and i feel like a giant. I wear them probably at least 5 days a week.

7. I've worked in aviation for almost 5 years (on and off) and I am so eager to learn to fly.
It scares the hell out of me. BUT I will learn..someday!

8. My dream job is to own my own winery.

9. I have 2 older sisters and a younger brother. 
And I have NO IDEA what I would do without them!!!

10.  I am EXTREMELY insecure about my body!!!

11.   I love country music. Everything about it. I'm planning my first trip to Nashville in a few weeks and I have a feeling I'm not going to want to leave!!!!!
(secretly hoping Luke Bryan makes a  surprise appearance at the bar we are at)

Now on to the questions that were given to me:

1) What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday tradition?
Definitely our annual family cookie day!! It's usually about a week before Christmas. It's a entire day of baking, eating and drinking with the family!

2) Movies or books and what is a favorite?
There are only a few books that I've actually read that are movies, but I always seem to get more into the movie than a book. The Twilight series is awesome tho! 
(Team Edward fo life!)

Extrovert. I think we can all agree on this one.

I might have to do a special post to answer all of these questions, haha. I'm not on instagram, but I know A LOT of people who are no longer going to be using it now.

I really love Nashville, but unfortunately I've never run into any country stars there. :) You should drive to Franklin where they all live. Just driving through town is worth it. So cute!
