Liebster Award Part 1

Guess what?  I was nominated for an award!!  Can you believe it?  Another blogger, Nanny to Mommy, liked my blog and nominated me for the Liebster award.  I didn't have a clue what is was (and since I assumed it was a blogging thing and I am new to this blogging world).  I saw her new post and there are questions for me to answer and I have to pass it on so that everyone can find out all of my favorite blogs!  First to the rules:

About myself:

1.  I have a 3 1/2 year old son.
2.  I am married to my best friend and the most wonderful man that I have ever met.
3.  I am a stay at home mom.
4.  I like to bake and try new recipes but cooking is a chore.
5.  I like to read and sometimes loose track of time when reading.
6.  I love to watch movies but I don't really like to go to the movie theater :)
7.  I dislike doing dishes (a lot) but seem to keep making them!!
8.  I don't iron!!  If something is wrinkled, it goes back in the laundry or waits for my mom to iron it because she wouldn't want to be seen in public with someone in wrinkled clothes.
9.  I am not allowed to vacuum anymore because I cut open my foot on the vacuum (years ago) which is nice because I don't like vacuuming so my husband does all the vacuuming.
10.  I love ice tea!!! I drink a lot of ice tea and might be a little addicted :)
11.  I drive a blue car because I was too stubborn to get leather seats and get the gray car that I wanted.  I am the worst decision maker ever and it might take me another 10 years to buy a car.

Answers to questions:

1. Do you have any nicknames? Where did they come from?

My son calls me Momma and Mommy- Does that count?  My husband makes up lots of names but it is usually based on whatever I am doing right then.  Currently his calling me Cookin' Momma Cook Off but it will probably fall off when I stop cooking so much :)

2. What is your favorite eyeshadow color to wear?

I don't wear eye shadow nearly ever but I have a container of gray when it is a really special occasion which is about 10 years old and looks brand new.

3. How many times in your life have you moved and where to?

I have moved a few times since I was born starting in Syracuse, NY where I was born.  We moved from an apartment to my parents first house in Syracuse (which they still own).  Then we moved to Auburn (outside of Syracuse) before kindergarten.  We left there when I was in the second grade and moved to Webster and lived in a townhome until our house was built in Gananda.  We lived in Gananda until I was in 9th grade and then we made the big move to Maryland.  (Running total 4 moves in NY)

Starting in my "adult" life, it is much easier to say that I moved a lot through college but I won't count the times that I stayed at my parents house but only when I rented from someone else over the summer.  I counted 10 moves between the Eastern Shore of MD and VA and I have been in my current house for 10 years!!  That brings me to a total of 14 moves with a hope that we are going to move in the next few years to another house in VA but you aren't going to catch me with over 15 moves so it better be the best house ever!!

4. Have you ever done any martial arts or do you want to?

Nope.  I had friends who did when I was younger and I would sit on the side of class and watch them but I never had the want to do it myself.

5. What is one of the first memories you have from childhood?

I don't know if it is the memory from childhood or stories put together with pictures but I remember playing in my kitchen with pots and pans but I think that is mostly from the pictures and my mom's stories.  Without pictures, I remember the trauma of going to kindergarten and the teachers pulling my hand apart from my best friend and spending the first day under the desk until they put me back in the class that I was supposed to be in.

6. If you could go to any year, when would you go to and why?

My first thought was right now because I love enjoying time with my son.  But I might go back to when I was still working and kick myself in the pants to quit my job sooner.  I had so many reasons why I shouldn't quit but it was the best decision for my family but hindsight is 20/20.

7. What was your favorite subject in school?

In elementary/junior high, I loved Home Ec because I had the best teacher ever.  Then, I liked math because I had another great teacher.  In college, it was psychology because of the great teacher and interesting subject matter.  I don't want to slight my accounting teacher in college because she was great but I looked at the other things that I needed for that major and I didn't have enough time to take them all.  I think that I am a sucker for a good teacher and it might have even changed my major in college!!
8. What is your favorite kind of scent?

Baking bread and cinnamon!  YUM!

9. If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would you chose?

This might be the hardest one because I am horrible with eating the same thing two days in a row.  Right now I am leaning towards Baked Potato soup but that would be tough in the summer months so I might go with chicken if I can prepare it different ways :)

10. What would your preferred weapon be for the Zombie Apocalypse?

I don't know if I could pick this without multiple choice.  I know how to kill vampires and werewolves but I don't know what to use against Zombies so I think that I would pick a good hiding spot!

11. What kind of pet is your favorite?
On that I am not allergic to and that doesn't shed (including snake skins)... I guess fish if the only thing left.

I wanted to get this part posted since it has taken me so long to get to it but I did not nominate anyone else or make questions up for them so stay tuned for post number 2 when I get it done!  Thanks again for the nomination!!!
