Liebster Award Recipient: Holla Back At Your Bad Self

My friend and fellow blogger Rachel from Not Two Normal nominated Mother May I for a Liebster Award. What is this award you might ask? Well luckily for me, Rachel explained the whole thing on her blog which saved me a lot of googling time. A Liebster is a way for fellow bloggers to recognize their friends in the blogging community. In a way it is a "pay it forward" link up party that makes it possible for the recipients to gain more followers and interest on their little part of the world wide web. Before I answer the mandatory questions (part of the prize for being nominated), I would like to give a short acceptance speech:

"Ehhem. Thank you to all of you who regularly read this blog. There are days when I write about nothing. There are days that I write about something. But no matter what you stick by me, and I am forever grateful."

Que exit music.

Ok back to the Liebster and the all important questions:

1. What's up?  Seriously, what's happening right when you type this?
Ummmm, I pretty much procrastinating.

2. How did you come up with your blog name?
If you tune back into one of my very first posts, the story was explained but in a nut shell: My mom and I watched Julie and Julia and she got hooked on the idea of starting a Mother/Daughter Blog. We had one post together at the very beginning and then from there on out it was just me. However the name stayed the same. I love it!

3. What is your favorite part about blogging?
I love that it is an online scrapbook of my life and that I can always look back to remember the good times. I also love the friends and connections you make. 

4. Least favorite?
Ummm...sometimes I just don't feel like writing.

5. What's the very first outfit you can remember wearing?
A blue shirt that had fruit all over it (sequined fruit) and matching biker shorts. Yes Biker Shorts. They were in back then. 

6.  What's the last makeup product you bought?
Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu
Yu Satin Lip Pencil
7.  Did you have an 'awkward' phase growing up?  Describe it!
In 5th grade I chopped off all of my hair because I got huge knots at the nape of my neck (still happens oy)...I am not meant for short hair. 

8.  What's your all-time favorite movie?
Bridget Jones' Diary
I could watch it all day every day.
Via
9.  What're you wearing as you type this? (how creepy does that sound, hah)
Red dress and Uggs...during Winter my Uggs are never far from my feet

10. It's the weekend, do you go out, or prefer to stay in?  Why?
I like a bit of both. Now that I am older staying home with a good bottle of wine sounds better than battling crowds for an over priced glass of Yellow-tail. However, there is a time and a place for that too. So I like a mix of both.

11. What's your all-time favorite song?
Hit Me With Your Best Shot by Pat Benatar
It is also my go to Karaoke song.

And there you have it! More things for you to know about little ol' me. I want to send a big thank you to Rachel for nominating me. Go check her out. Not only is she one of the most witty people I know (absolutely hilarious) but she also has some mad skills when it comes to make up and regularly posts tutorials. You won't be disappointed.

And before I leave, I want to pass on the love by nominating some of my favorite bloggers
