Liebster Award

ummm wow! Speechless really =) I have a completely surprising and unexpected post for you today that I hope you will enjoy! I was nominated this past weekend for The Liebster Award by Marissa over at Get Polished Up. I am one of those weirdos that researches like crazy when they are new to something. The Liebster Award is for bloggers with less than 200 followers, in order to help spread the word about their blog.I am TRULY  honored, surprised, THANKFUL etc. to be nominated for this and I really hope you all enjoy reading this post... stick around I bet you will find something in here to make fun of me for ;) as there are questions/facts that follow! 

 The rules are: 

1. You must post 11 random facts about yourself.

2. You must answer the 11 questions that the person who nominated you asked.
3. You must then come up with 11 new questions and tag 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers to keep the ball rolling. No tag backs, however! 

First up are the 11 random facts about myself:

1. I have always been an avid dog lover... Right now we have 3... 2 chihuahuas and 1 Lab/Vizsla (all the nicest people you could ever ask for) Yes I am THAT PERSON who considers their dogs as family... it's true. 
2. I AM a reader... books over movies, that does not mean I do not like movies though ;)
3. I have a love for all things Harry Potter (I have all the books and movies) I have even been to Harry Potter World at Universal Orlando!!! and I want to go back!
4. I have played tennis ever since my sister started to play and I still do... when given the chance.
5. I attended Lee College (Baytown,TX) and played tennis for the school as well, we won a national championship, probably one of the most memorable things that has happened to me to date!
6. After that I went on to PVAMU, I played a bit there and met some wonderful people I couldn't imagine not knowing.
7. Speaking of wonderful people, I am a big family person. I don't know what I would do without each and every single one of them... I MEAN everyone has a quirky uncle right? ;)
8. I am actually VERY SHY until you really get to know me and then you can't shut me up!
9. Being shy and blogging actually work out better than I thought.I get to sit here upload pictures, give my opinions, talk to you great people all without the actual face to face. I LOVE IT! Honestly if I get to know you through the blog, I most likely won't be shy if we were to ever meet.
10. All of my closest friends know that if I am a little mean to them I really consider them more than good friends... I am very loyal to them, and hopefully to you guys as well.
11. I actually know very little about this nail polish world we currently reside in and I would love to know more, so please feel free to help me if I get something wrong! I am open to constructive criticism.
