Liebester award

Yeah I'm the proud receiver of the Liebster Award -- 

Thanks Veronica! .... and go check out her blog. It's called Germlisch and it's all about her life in Germany and her quest to move back to Cali!

Here are the rules:
  • Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  • Answer the 11 questions the person giving the award has set for you.
  • Create 11 questions for the people you will be giving the award to.
  • Choose 11 people to award and send them a link to your post. Go to their page and tell them.
  • No tag backs.

So here you go, 11 things about me:
  1. My friend Kim has forbidden me from ever cutting my own nails again, according to her I butcher them! 
  2. In return, I get free mani's and pedi's from her (she rocks!) 
  3. I have discovered a new energy drink, it's 100% natural and delicious! The name however is a bit 'shocking' if you are English speaking, it's called P*ssy 
  4. I had my drivers license and drove a car for nearly 15 years before I filled the car with gas for the first time 
  5. I'm becoming bored with my red hair .... but I'm not sure what color to change it to next ... any suggestions are welcome
  6. I'm on a greek yogurt with honey and peanut butter kick at the moment, can't seem to get enough of it 
  7. I procrastinate, and the older I'm getting the worse I'm getting 
  8. I suffer from house envy, when I see how lovely other people's homes look I wish that mine did as well 
  9. I don't have an eye for decorating, at all. I can see what looks nice in other peoples homes but can't seem to replicate the look in my own home 
  10. I haven't been on a plane since February 2010 ....  I need to go on another trip! 
  11. When I was little I my secret alter ego was called Vernonica
Here are the 11 random questions I had to answer:

1. If you could dye your hair one color right now that would never fade and you were never able to dye it ever again, what color would you choose?

I could never give up dying my hair and only sticking to one color even if that color was not going to fade

2. Let's talk tattoos. What's your dream tattoo and where on your body would it be located?

I have been thinking of getting one but if I do it will have to have some meaning. At the moment I'm leaning towards getting a white tattoo on on wrist

3. If money weren't a problem, what would your dream car be?

5 door Range Rover Evoque

seriously sexy

4. Speaking of dreams, what's your dream job? 

Having my own shop selling cupcakes and cocktails
5. Favorite sport?

Rugby (if you don't know what Rugby is please let me know and I'll explain it to you, but for now it's even better than football. Yes I said it!)

6. If you had the option of buying a small house, or renting a mansion, which would you choose?

Buying a small house, since it will be mine I could extend it until it was the prefect size and style

7.  You're stranded on an island: Who do you make friends with: A beach ball? Or a coconut? (Choose wisely..)

A beach ball, you can eat/drink a coconut but it you were friends you would not want to eat your friend and eating a ball is out of the question

8. Would you rather live somewhere that has snow year round, or somewhere where the temperature is over 100°F year round?
100°F all year round.... I need sun

9. What's your "go to" outfit when you're having a bad day?
Skinny jeans & t-shirt
10. Do you pick up hitchhikers? Or have you ever wanted to?

My mom & I did, once. Two guys from Iceland they were on a world tour. They slept over at our house and we took them to the border between South Africa and Zimbabwe the next day. A couple of weeks later we got a postcard from them. They were lovely! But it's not something I would just do these days.

11. Tell me something about yourself that I don't already know.
I've hitchhiked, more than once ... with a girl friend and with my brother. This was years ago. We got picked up both time but again it's not something that I would do again.

My list of 11 questions

1. There has been a number of tv shows that have been re-made, Hawaii 50, Dallas .... what old tv show would you like to see them re-make and who would you cast as the main characters?
2. What is your favorite shower gel/body wash?
3. Do you still buy magazines? If yes, which one(s)?
4. How about jewellery. Gold, Silver, Pearls, other stones ..... do you have? do you want?
5. When you got engaged was it a surprise (romantic)?  or If you were to get engaged one day would you like it to be a surprise, or not?
6. If you were given 3 wishes what would you wish for? But  note, you are only allowed to use 2 of your wishes for yourself
7. Heels or flats?
8. Years ago when I was little I used to know all the important phone numbers by heart, how many phone numbers do you still know by heart?
9. Does your best friend call you their best friend?
10. How many pairs of shoes do you have? How many is too many?
11. If you could trade lives with somebody you know, who would it be?

  1. ooh these are fun! thank you for the award!!

  2. My mom has been driving for over 40 years, and has never filled her own tank. She always goes to a self-serve, or if she has one of us with her she makes us pump her gas! haha!!

    I get house envy a LOT. Especially when I go on the Christmas House Tour that our town puts on every year. I really wish I had a nicer place...

  3. That car is beautiful! And the hitchhiking stories are very interesting. I do want to try this Pussy Energy Drink now.. hahaha

  4. You are awesome!!!! Thank you!!!! I loved reading all of this about you. I could seriously comment about each thing, but that would be the longest comment ever!

    Suggestion for your hair: Have you tried blonde? I noticed your blonde friend in your BBQ pics with the short hair. That color looked awesome! Try that one!

    A shop with cupcakes AND cocktails? I would never leave. Ever.

    You and your mom have got to be the nicest (and maybe craziest) people ever for picking up hitchhikers and letting them sleep at your house!!! What were you thinking?!? I would have been scared to death they would cut me to pieces during the night.

  5. Honored! Thank you!

    Can't believe the gas thing. Totally crazy.

  6. congrats and so funny your friend has forbidden you to cut your own nails but hey free mani/pedi not bad. oh and thank you for the award you are awesome

  7. I had an alter ego as a kid too! Her name was Tanya, haha! And I would totally go to your cupcake/cocktail shop :)

    p.s. - your dream car is the same as my husband's!

  8. *giggles* You have me giggling at this post!!! ;P Great answers, by the way. Oh, and your Greek yogurt, honey, and PB combo sounds yummy!

  9. Congrats on your award!

    I'm no help with the hair. I have no clue what to do with mine either.
