And the Award Goes To…

First, I would like to thank The Momhood for nominating me for the Leibster Award! I am really new to this, and I don’t have anywhere near 200 followers, so when I saw this, it was really nice! I think it’s an awesome way to network new and upcoming bloggers, and it helps get your name out there too!

There are so many wonderful bloggers out there, and I we all have our own stories and experiences. When The Momhood sent me this, I thought “Ok, this is some spammy thing..” But it’s real, and it’s AWESOME! In the past few days, I’ve accumulated some new followers, veteran bloggers and newbies alike, so…I guess I need to get to nominating!

Here is how it works:
•Link back to the person who nominated you.
•Answer the questions given to you by the nominator.
•Nominate up to 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.
•Create 11 questions for the nominees.
•Notify all nominees via social media/blogs.

First, here are the questions that The Momhood asked me to answer:

1.What struggle or achievement has made you the person you are today?

I got married at the ripe old age of 20, have been living on my own since 18. I supported myself through high school and college, and it’s made me realize exactly how strong I can be.

  1. What 3 places have you been that you thought you would never go?
  • Wayne County…where I live now…grew up in the rival school district. (Im from the south, football is a big deal.)
  • Kansas City, Missouri/Kansas. Furthest I’ve ever been!
  • Jumped off a bridge into a river, for someone whose terrified of heights and deep water, that was amazing!
  1. What is your biggest blog fear?

My blog is like a live journal…my only fear is that someone who knows me will see it and think “wow, I had no idea!”

  1. If you could be anyone, past or present, who would they be?

Audrey Hepburn. She was so beautiful and just a classic!

  1. Name a wild animal? Would they make a good or bad pet?

Tiger. Not sure, but I would LOVE to have one as a baby for a little while. Like on Aladdin!

  1. You are meeting your idol from High School. Who were they and why?

My idol from high school consisted of punk bands and emo musicians. I’d rather just leave it at that!

  1. If you could have picked your name, what would it be?

My real name is Alexandria, but I go by Allie. I don’t think I could have chosen a more unique name.

  1. You are an elected Government official. What is the first law you pass?

Paid Maternity/Paternity Leave for a year!

  1. What part do you get stumped on when writing a new blog post?

Trying to find something I think would be interesting for the readers and not just me complaining or getting too personal and they find me boring!

  1. You are writing a novel. What genre do you pick?

Mystery/Horror or Dark Romance.

  1. Why did Yankee Doodle name the feather in his hat, Macaroni?

Macaroni was a slang term for, like, super fashionable men (even over-fashionable…a translation today might be “metrosexual.”)

Here is how it works:
•Link back to the person who nominated you.
•Answer the questions given to you by the nominator.
•Nominate up to 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.
•Create 11 questions for the nominees.
