Today is a new day! This is the only day that counts!

I was nominated for the Liebster Award by The Non-Martha Momma.

Here are the Rules:

2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.

3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.

5. No tag backs.

Eleven Random Facts About Me

 1.  I have a puggle.  She is so sweet.
 2.  My favorite exercise is weight-lifting.
 3.  I am a huge baseball fan.
 4.  I love to travel, pretty much anywhere.
 5.  I love to read.  I even read the backs of cereal boxes.
 6.  I love roller coasters.
 7.  Pizza is one of my favorite foods.
 8.  I type my son's homework.  I get in trouble with my older kids for this.
 9.  My new favorite movie is - Oz:  The Great and Powerful
10. I met Steven Tyler once.  He was just like he was on American Idol.
11. I could live on the beach.

 My Questions from The Non-Martha Momma
  1. What do you do for a living (or are you a SAHM)? If you could do anything else at all, what would it be?  My job was downsized last year.  I was a bookkeeper. I would go back to school and study something?  Haven't figured out what yet!
  2. Favorite ice cream flavor?  Vanilla, but with any kind of toppings.  I like the toppings better than the ice cream.
  3. What's your hair color? Is it your natural color? If you were to dye it another color what color would it be? Black, it is but it would have lots of gray now.  Red, something really flashy!
  4. If you were an animal, what would you be and why?  A dog, because they are loved and taken care of.  My dog gets better care than lots of family members.
  5. Do you sleep with socks on or off? (I know...weird question, but my husband thinks I'm weird for always sleeping with socks, even in the dead of summer, so just curious)  I sleep in my socks most of the year, not just winter.  My feet get cold.
  6. Do you like board games? If so what are some of your favorites? Yes, I haven't played any for a few years, since my son has gotten older.  Monopoly, Is Yahtzee a board game?  We used to play games all the time.
  7. What time do you normally go to bed and what time do you normally wake up?  Since I haven't been working, my bedtime is really mixed up.  Usually late, and sometimes I sleep in a little.  I can read blogs until 2 a.m.
  8. Are you having a hard time answering my questions, coming up with 11 random facts about you, and asking 11 questions to your nominees?  Yes, I am kind of a private person.  I guess maybe not so much any more.  I have put so much information on my blog that I wouldn't share with close friends.  Weird, huh!
  9. Do you have a lucky number? I think you make your own luck, so any number can be lucky.  
  10. Do you have any children? If so, how many and what ages? How many children (or how many more children) do you plan/want to have? Yes, four.  40, 38, 36, and 18.  I think it's too late for more.
  11. Favorite season?  Summer, I love warm weather, but I also like Spring alot.
