leibster award


The beautiful Jo from the blog The Little Dandy, has nominated me for the Leibster Award. I've never received this one before and it's been a while since I've done one, but I hope I can keep you entertained with a few little details about me that you may or may not know.

The Leibster Award rules:

  1. Every blogger nominated must post 11 things about themselves.
  2. You must also answer the questions the person who nominated you made and you should create 11 questions for the people you nominate.
  3. Choose 11 bloggers you nominate, and post links to their blog.
  4. No tag backs.

11 things about me:

  1. I have a terrible fear of heights. But it's a strange fear. I'm only afraid if I'm not tied down. For example, I'm scared of see saws, being pushed on a swing, climbing ladders, sitting on someone's shoulders, etc. 
  2. I have selective memory loss. Either that or I'm just getting old and my memory has shot to shit.
  3. I'm completely terrified of public speaking. A fear I would love to get over someday.
  4. I collect key chains. I have over 300 from all over the world. Every time someone goes on a trip to someplace new, I ask them to bring me back a keychain with that place's name on it if possible.
  5. I used to have braces when I was younger and now have a permanent brace in the back of my bottom 6 front teeth.
  6. It's been a while but I think I can still dance Salsa pretty well.
  7. I've had 3 operations in my life. 
  8. My worst subject in high school was Religion.
  9. I don't drink any type of soda pop.
  10. I have a scar above my left eye. Playground accident.
  11. My jaw clicks.

My questions from Jo:

When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging in November 2009 because I loved the fact that I was able to inspire people. It gives me a high.
