Liebster Award

Casey over at Little Miss Florida Prep and Katherine from Katherine Nicole have nominated me for the "Leibster Award." I'm so excited to share some details about me with y'all!

Here's how it all works:

1. List 11 facts about yourself
2. Answer the questions of the person who nominated you
3. Create 11 new questions
4. Nominate 11 new bloggers that have less than 200 followers

11 Facts About Me:
1. I was raised in the Baptist Church and now attend a non-denominational church in Bluffton. 
2. I was a college athlete all four years at Charleston Southern.
3. I have three brothers, two sisters, three sister-in-laws, and two-brother in laws. 
4. I majored in Kinesiology in college and planned to become a Physical Therapist, and then changed my mind to Physician Assistant. It was definitely the right choice for me. 
5. I love British reality shows but hate the American ones {Real Housewives of whatever and the like}. If you loved The Hills, you might want to check out Made in Chelsea. It's my favorite.
6. I have an unhealthy obsession with my little poodle, Sperry. 
7. I could literally eat desserts for breakfast. I have been known to eat creme brûlée and cheesecake in the last 2 weeks.
8. I never thought I would ever own a cat due to allergies and the fact that I've never really liked them, but I decided we needed one a few months after we were married. We named him Dumbledore, and he acts like a dog. 
9. I love Walt Disney World and Harry Potter. I'm actually counting the days until I can return and visit the new additions. 
10. I'm not really a fan of Facebook. In fact, if it weren't for my class group in which we share info and study guides, I would have deactivated my account.
11. I was blonde for about 12 years through high school and college. I dyed my hair to my natural color after I graduated college and will never go back.

Katherine's Questions:
1.Are you an early bird or night owl?
I have to say early bird. I wake up around 5:45 for school most days and commute an hour to get there. This often carries over on the weekends. I also get my best studying done in the morning before anyone else is up.

2. What are you currently reading?
Technically I should be reading my Obstetrics or Pediatric textbook, but I'm not.

3. What would be your dream job?
I'm pretty lucky to be in school for my dream job. A PA is seriously the best of both worlds in my eyes, you get to help people but also have a life outside of working all the time.

4. Chocolate or vanilla?
Chocolate, particularly Twix or Score bars.

5. What is your most prized possession?
I guess I have to say my pups and kitty. They're definitely the first thing I would grab if the house caught on fire. 

6. What's the first thing you do in the morning?
I usually snooze the alarm once but then head to the bathroom to rinse my face and brush my teeth. 

7. What is your favorite food?
I love all food, except pizza {gasp!}. I especially love Mexican, my husband says I should have been born there as much as I want to eat it.

8. Biggest pet peeve?
People who don't drive the speed limit. It really grinds my gears being that I drive 70 miles total to school and back. I don't have time for people to only go 40 in a 55. Seriously.

9. What was the last movie you watched? What did you think about it?
I actually just watched Man of Steel with the hubby tonight. It was okay, but very long. I'll probably never watch it again.

10. Pasta, wine and a good book OR pizza, beer and a movie? Why?
Pasta, wine and a book. I'm a huge Potterhead, like huge. There is just something magical about getting into a book so good you forget what time it is.

11. What's something your readers might not know about you?
In reference to #10, I'm a nerd. Or so my husband loves to call me that. I read a lot, and not necessarily for school {please don't let my teachers find out}. I read 5 books over the Christmas holidays. I'm obsessed with Harry Potter, so much so that every time it comes on ABC Family I watch it. True story.

Blogs I nominate (I broke the rules and only chose 8, shame on me):

Questions I'd love y'all to answer:
1. Who is your personal style icon?
2. What is your favorite dessert?
3. How many brothers or sisters do you have?
4. Do you envision a big family, or just one kid or two?
5. Did you play any sports when you were younger?
6. What is your most favorite book you've read in the last year?
7. iPhone or Android?
8. Powder foundation or liquid foundation?
9. What is your go to drink on a night out?
10. Where is your favorite place you've traveled?
11. What is one skill you want to master?

Thanks again Casey and Katherine!
