Becoming the best me I can be

liebster-awardThis has taken me forever but I am finally making this post. I was nominated for my first Liebster award by Letters to Chace & Harper. I was very honored and happy to be nominated. That same week I was nominated by Meagan at The 80/20 Mom. I was overwhelmed with happiness at being nominated twice in one week. Since I had just made the post about my first Liebster award, I wasn’t too keen on doing another. I was very happy and thanked her for the nomination. As if both of these nominations weren’t awesome enough, I was also nominated by Julie at WorkingUpTheCurve. I was overjoyed. It took me forever to make this post but it doesn’t lessen the honor I feel at being nominated.

I’ll combine my answers from both nominations into this blog and link to my first Liebster award post for my nominees and questions.

Okay so here are the rules for the Liebster award…

  • post 11 random facts about myself
  • answer the 11 questions posed by my nominator
  • nominate other blogs
  • ask them 11 questions

11 Random Facts about myself for Meagan’s Nomination

  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to read. I’ll read anything and everything. Science fiction, fantasy, romantic novels, nutrition/fitness, textbooks, research articles, just everything
  2. I love to learn. I am always researching and learning something new. Although I read a lot, I don’t believe everything I read. I usually read a ton and make my own opinion of what I’ve read. This is definitely true about raising babies and all the confusing/conflicting information there is about it.
  3. I’ve moved A LOT in my lifetime. A LOT. I have honestly lost count I’ve moved so many times but it’s well over 30 moves (I’m only 24).
  4. Both of my parents have had cancer. My father died of lung cancer and my mother almost died of colon cancer. This is one of the reasons being healthy is so important to me.
  5. Hubby and I met in high school during senior year(even went to prom together). We were each other’s first loves and are still madly in love with each other.
  6. I lived in Florida for a couple years. I love it there.
  7. I went to college for massage therapy and got my associates degree. I moved to Pennsylvania (where I now live) and got pregnant a few months after graduation. My license has expired while I have been living life. I would still love to do massage therapy but currently can’t afford to renew my license.
  8. I love essential oils and use them a lot. My favorites are lavender and peppermint. I also love lemon and orange essential oils for cleaning.
  9. I love cooking and baking from scratch. It is calming for me and I just love it. I just hate doing all the dishes!
  10. I have many great friends but don’t really get to talk to them often. This makes me sad.
  11. I have always loved animals and nature. I want to instill a love of animals and nature in Peanut as well.

11 Random Facts about myself for Julie’s Nomination

  1. Peanut was a surprise. We weren’t preventing but we weren’t trying either. I would never ever call her a mistake though. When I think of the word mistake, it makes me think of something you wish didn’t happen or regret. She never has been or ever will be a mistake. She was a pleasant surprise 😀
  2. I love watching cartoons and kids movies. Despicable Me, Shrek, Ice Age, Monster Inc. and Hercules are some of the kid movies I love to watch.
  3. I was raised to believe dinosaurs don’t exist (as in they are make-believe). I don’t believe this anymore. haha!
  4. I didn’t watch Star Wars until after I met Hubby.
  5. I have book smarts. I graduated from college with a 97-98% grade point average (I can’t remember the exact number but it was in-between those LOL).
  6. In school, I gave a massage to a Boston Red Sox player. They were in Fort Myers, FL for spring training and came to my school for massages. I have a baseball signed by the whole team 😀
  7. I fart often when I workout. Thank goodness I’m not at the gym or in a class. haha!
  8. I like watching nature documentaries.
  9. I can’t hold my breath underwater without holding my nose. Don’t know why.
  10. I listen to all sorts of music and am open to listening to anything.
  11. I love a lot of things. haha!
