Liebster Award

I'm writing this while baby girl tries to sleep at 3:30 in the morning hahaha
So the lovely Chrissie gave me the Liebster Award
which is super sweet of her ;)

So now I get to entertain you with 11 random facts about me,
answer her questions,
and anyone that wants to answer MY questions at the end is more than welcome to!

Ok here goes!

 1. I am a total sucker for Strawberry Kiwi Snapple ;)
And we can only get it at QT unless my readers know 
a secret place that carries it in bulk??
2. I'm named after "Ali with an i" from The Karate Kid
(slash the actress Ali McGraw)
3. I didn't really like being pregnant
I know I know! 
I'm a horrible human being,
I LOVE the outcome - I mean my baby is CUTE!
But being swollen and huge and not able to do much kinda sucked
not to mention the morning sickness was terrible.
4. I have eaten out more times this week than I care to admit....
hey I'm not pregnant anymore so I can eat what I want finally!
5. My lucky number is 8.
6. My favorite color is red.
7. I'm allergic to Preggo Spaghetti sauce.
8. I'm a huge bookworm ;)
9. I really want a sewing machine so I can be all domestic
and make cute things for me and Rory.
10. I want to travel the world someday with Andrew,
visit all the places on my bucket list ;)
11. I still secretly wanna be Indiana Jonesette ;)

Now for Chrissie's questions:
1. You're about to be shipwrecked..which 3 items do you bring and why?
Hmmm....probably my toothbrush, my scriptures, and some sort of game
to help pass the time til we're rescued hahaha ;)
2. What's your "guilty pleasure"?
Oh dear what ISN'T my guilty pleasure?
I love watching Days of Our Lives I won't lie,
and all those fun TLC shows like
Cake Boss and Say Yes to the Dress ;)
3. How many parts of the country you're from have you visited? And where?
Not many for me:
Arizona, Utah, California, Colorado, Hawaii, 
New Mexico, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Nevada.
Andrew's been to way more than me ;)
4. What's your biggest pet peeve?
People going back on their promises.
Or just disloyalty in general I guess,
I can't stand it!
5. How many times have you moved houses? 
Have you ever moved to a different part of the country,
or even a different country altogether?
Oh wow.
Um I've moved a grand total of 7 times in my life.
And not necessarily a different part of the country but different states ;)
6. Your "catchphrase"
"Poop on a stick!" - when I'm frustrated
7. Favorite thing about blogging?
Meeting all kinds of new people from all over the world!
8. Reality TV yay or nay?
(if yay, what's your favorite? Nay, which one gets on your nerves the most?)
I say mostly nay.
I do like the Amazing Race and So You Think You Can Dance
but the Bachelorette/Bachelor bugs me beyond belief.
Actually ALL of those dumb dating games bug me....
9. Do you have any allergies?
I have mild environmental allergies,
and a couple food ones that just make me nauseous
but nothing too serious ;)
10. If you could choose anywhere in the world, but only one place,
where would you visit?
Probably Germany or Poland.
I'm a Holocaust freak so I wanna see the camps...I know,
I'm a weirdo.
11. If you won the lottery, what would you spend your money on?
I'd buy a house, a car, save for the kids' schooling, get Disneyland passes,
and let Andrew figure out the rest hahahaha ;)

Ok here are my questions and anyone can answer them
(you can even just put them in the comments if you want!
I like getting to know my peeps!)

1. If you could meet one person from history who would it be?
2. What's your go-to movie when you're down in the dumps?
3. What's your favorite book?
4. Where's your favorite vacation spot?

  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't/didn't enjoy pregnancy all that much!! And you're welcome for the award by the way, I enjoy reading your facts and answers :)

  2. Yay for being able to eat whatever you want! That reminds me... I'm a cravin' some MexiCAN food. (Please read that in a southern accent - that's how I said it in my head).
    And... I'm sure Rory was worth the 9 months of hell. lol I told mike that whenever I'm pregnant I'm going to be a cross between a beached whale and the wicked stepmother from cinderella. So... basically I'll just be a really mean beached whale. lol

  3. Totally with you on #8. I also caught a few minutes of "Teen Mom" today....and oh my gosh it made me so sade for humankind :P Thankfully that's not representative of the entire population.

  4. Congrats on your beautiful baby girl!!! Enjoy every moment with her:). I can't find a way to contact you on here so I am commenteing because I got your package last week and LOVE everything In it!!! Thank you so much!!
