Happy March Madness + A Liebster

First off, Happppppppy, happpppy, happppppy March Madness my friends!!! This time of year, may be better than Christmas and so far the games have not disappointed!!!! Think good thoughts for my bracket.  If Brad and I have a bet going.  If I win he has to watch a weeks worth of Reality TV with me...BUT if I lose I have to wear these clown pants out in public. The only thing I am sad about is not being able to watch any games on Saturday, because I will be coaching.  I better see some good marks and times from my athletes if they are going to make me miss games ;)

Originally I had planned links dedicated to March Madness, but I am changing it up because I was nominated for a 'Liebster Award' last night from a fellow blogger. I am obviously still new to blogging, because Megan over at My Better Half and Me nominated me and I might of had to google what it was. sorry I'm not sorry. 

Rumor has it, you nominate baby blogs like mine (those with around 200 followers or less) to help gain readership, which I am all about, and then once you have participated you nominate other blogs. I really appreciate the nomination Megan!!! Make sure to hop on over and check her out! She is too cute.


{The Rules are the rule are the rules} 

1:: Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you.
2:: Choose new bloggers to pass the award on to and link them in your post. (Obviously don't have to participate)
3:: Create eleven new questions for the chosen bloggers. 
4:: Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5:: Each blogger should post eleven random facts about themselves. 
6:: No Tag Backs!!!
{Megan's questions to me}

1:: Are you more a dog person or cat person?
Pupppppppies!!!! I want a boxer so badly:


2:: If you could only use one social media a day, which one would you choose?
Right now my latest crush is Instagram. We are for sure in the lust phase of our relationship - you know the feeling, the one where I can't stop checking it and hoping they are stalking you back. We'll see if we can make it to the love phase or if over use of #hashtags from 13 year olds make me tired of it.

3:: What's your favorite movie?
Hmmm, one that always makes me laugh is Wedding Crashers. I can pretty much quote the entire thing...but one of my all time favorites has got to be Good Will Hunting.

4:: What makes you smile the most?
Right this moment food March Madness and sunshine, that definitely makes me smile.

5:: Would you rather go to the beach or to the lake?
I grew up near a lake that had sand does that count ? But real talk, definitely the beach there is something so calming about the ocean.

6:: If you could be any person for a day, who would you be?
Jessica Ennis, she is the Olympic Gold Champion in the heptathlon, which is the event that I did in college for  Willamette Track. I just want to know what it feels like to be that good and get a full understanding of the work she had to put in to get there.

7:: What are the top five songs on your playlist?
I mean wow, this is hard, if you know anything about my Tuesday Tunesday then you know I love music, hard.  But these are, probably, 5 songs I will never grow tired of:


(Yeah, I'm kind and linked the songs too. Enjoy!)

8:: What's your favorite kind of food?
Sushi. Gosh, I could eat this every day.

9:: Have you ever gotten a speeding ticket?
Knock on wood, no... Got out of one once though !

10:: What's the biggest award you have ever received?
All-American in the heptathlon when I was in college.  Granted I was only at a DIII school, but it is still a pretty cool thing to know I was one of the best in the country that year for all of DIII, so I'll take it.

11:: How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? ;)
...Get to the center of a ohhh-ohhhhhhh... was I the only one that thought of the Lil' Kim song after reading that question?! Also, does anyone else think of Baby Spice when they go to eat a tootsie pop?! No?! Just me, cool.

{Random Facts About Me}

::I am left handed
::I have a set of webbed toes. (Definitely makes me the female version of Michael Phelps.)
::I hate the word moist. ugggh, chills just thinking about it.
::I worked for Enterprise-Rent-A-Car after I graduated college.  They aren't lying when they say 'we'll pick you up'.  Also, I would not suggest moving to a new city (heck, new state like I did) and getting a job where you are supposed to know your way around.  
::If a Christmas song comes on my shuffle, I will listen to it no matter what month it is.  I have been known to sing All I Want For Christmas Is You in July.  So sue me. 
::Part of me really wants to get certified to become a Personal Trainer
::I have puppy fever real bad.  If only our apartment complex let us have them!
::I keep telling myself I want to cut out dairy from my diet, but so far I keep find cheese on my plate.
::I graduated high school when I was 16 and college when I was 20. I'm super smart like that.
::Speaking of Spice Girls - when that movie first came out, it was summer time and my family was boating and I convinced my dad to buy me the movie on video if I jumped into this snow-melt, ice cold water creek that connected into the lake we were at. So worth the numbness.
::Some days I wish I still had my nose pierced.

And that's all she wrote, folks!
