Liebster Award

Hey Everyone! I was just getting ready to post a mani for you when I realized that photobucket did not upload the pictures. Grrr! I think it might be time to pay for the Google storage lol. So since I can't show you a mani I will do something different. I was recently nominated by two super cool chicks for the Liebster Award. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy. THANK YOU GIRLS!!! I was first nominated by Kristi over at Hap Hap Happy Hands then the awesome Angie at Polish and Patience nominated me as well. You should definitely go over and check their blogs out if you haven't already!

So let's get this party started.

1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
2. They must also answer the 11 questions the "tagger" has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.
5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
6. There's no tag backs. 
Ok 11 things about me.
1. I am currently trying to figure out if I want to finish school and the logistics of all that. I STILL don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
2. I am a football FREAK and I have my fantasy football drafts tonight, tomorrow night and another one coming up next week. I am slightly a football fanatic.
3. Unlike most normal engaged chicks I have not even thought of a date or wedding plans yet. I am not in a big hurry at all.
4. I am HUGELY into 80s hair metal and rock music lately. I can't get enough of the 80s.
5. I just discovered the Alice in Chains song Poison and listen to it every time I get in the car. It has been stuck in my head for days.
6. I have a great memory, I remember conversations and details and everything BUT where I leave things. I am always misplacing something, I lost a whole bag of yarn in the house this week. I finally found it this morning.
7. I have tons of project ideas but so little time to actually complete them all.
8. I love tracking hurricanes during hurricane season. I usually have the hurricane map and track it though this year I don't have one.
9. My son starts high school next year and I am totally in denial about it. I refuse to acknowledge it, I would like to shrink him back to a baby.
10. I change guitar strings better than df who has played for 15+ years. I am his official guitar tech.
11. I do not like potatoes. I am ok with fries but do not enjoy them in potato form.
Since Kristi tagged me first I am using her 11 questions (sorry I am too lazy to answer Angie's too lol):

1. When did you start getting into nail polish?
Hmmm, I wasn't allowed to wear polish until 9th grade when I started public school. It was then that I REALLY got into polish but I always loved it and wore it when I was young. I had that peel off polish when I was really little.

2. What was your first (or favorite) lemming fulfilled?
My first lemming fulfilled was Deborah Lippman Across the Universe which I swapped for.

3. What's your favorite color of nail polish, and is it different than your favorite everyday color?
Blue and Green are my favorite polish colors and my favorite everyday color is blue.

4. What other hobbies/interests do you have?
Oh my, tons! Music, crafts, crochet, baking, writing, reading, football, and tons more. I am all over the place lol.

5. Do you have any pets?
I have 2 cats Bruce Kittlee Master Ninja Warrior and Captain Neileon the Chameleon. 2 dogs Newey and Mr. Charleston Chew. Our zoo has been downsized a little sadly :(

6. Why do you blog?
I love writing and rambling and figured this would be the place to keep all my mani ideas together. It is amazing to correspond with people all over the world that share the polish love.

7. Are you Team Helmer or Team Melmer? (Or Team Something Else?)
Team Helmer. I need another one since my two are already full. I think I need an intervention actually.

8. What's your current stash count (not including treatments)?
Uh, A TON! I don't have an exact count but I am overflowing 2 Helmers so you get the idea.
9. What's your favorite nail polish finish? Creme, jelly, shimmer, etc.
I am very into jellies lately. Glitter and creme and matte and shimmer. Pretty much everything but frosty.

10. What's your favorite drink?
A&W Diet Rootbeer. I should actually go check the one I have chilling in the freezer now that you reminded me.

11. What's your favorite TV show?
Oh gosh. I don't know that I have one that I HAVE to watch all the time. I do very much enjoy Big Bang Theory, Law and Order SVU the repeats on USA, NCIS the original one also repeated on USA, ummmm I think those are the ones that I watch most regularly.

Ok this is where I fail guys I went through a chunk of my blog list and can only find a few that meet the 200 follower requirement. Since there are no tag backs I can't use the girls that nominated me which further cuts my list down. So I am just going to nominate one person because she totally rocks, I LOVE her blog and she meets the requirement. If you don't follow her you totally should because she is a sweetheart and always creates more lemmings for me with her pictures.

My Questions for you:

1. What first got you into nail polish?
2. Do you have any pets?
3. What is your favorite brand?
4. Are you into the Indie polishes?
5. If you had unlimited funds what 3 polishes would you buy?
6. What is your favorite drink?
7. If you never had to work again what would you spend time doing?
8. What is your favorite finish?
9. What is your biggest lemming?
10. Why did you start blogging?

Now I better get back to work.
That's all for now :)

  2. :faints: OMG! I was so touched to read this! It almost made me cry when I read it. I actually saw it when I was in London but couldn't comment from my reader. Sorry it took me so long! Thank you so so much! I'm glad that you like my pictures! I love your blog too and have always been a fan ever since I found it.

I got a bunch of these but I'll make sure to answer every single question I got. And yours will be the first answered! I'm so glad I've met you through this blogging experience. You are an amazing person! Thank you so so much! :hugs:
