Libester ..and the ones I've forgotten to post

I have to admit, I've been horrible at keeping up with my Liebster nominations. I love reading other peoples answers and posts, but I feel like mine are a little lack luster. Since I've been snowed in for a week with nothing to do and therefore haven't gotten to celebrate #valensversary (which I am absolutely livid about it), aaaaaaand it is a goal of mine to post at least twice a week in February, you get a liebster post!

The Liebster Award is a way for bloggers to celebrate other bloggers. It's passed down from one blogger to another, as long as the blogger has less than 200 followers. If you choose to accept the nomination, here are a few rules to follow:

1.  Answer the questions from the person who nominated you.
2. List 10 facts about yourself.
3. Create 10 new questions.
4. Nominate 5-10 bloggers with less than 200 followers.
  • I almost always have a Stress Relief candle from Bath and Body works burning in my apartment. Not because I find it de-stressing, but because I just love the smell of eucalyptus.
  • I jumped out of a plane, but didn't think it was that big of an adrenaline rush. True Story.
  • My favorite colors are coral and turquoise
  • I have been pulled over 8 times and have never received a speeding ticket.
  • I love traveling, but I hate living out of a suitcase
  • My biggest fears are dying with regrets and growing old
  • My mind houses the most bizarre useless trivia and facts you could ever want to know
  • My favorite colors are coral and turquoise
  • I taught my dog how to bark when you say "Go Dawgs, Sic em" ..I don't even care about UGA football, I just thought it would be a neat party trick.
  • I am a sucker for a good bargain. I am the queen of getting deals and saving money.
My first nomination was from my dear, dear Mrs. Hopper from Baseball Diamonds and Hairspray

1. What TV show are you addicted to right now?

2. Tell us about your favorite moment in life ever.
Hands down. I would give anything to go back and be that free, wild girl again. This was the day that I met some of my favorite friends from high school. We had such an incredibly fun day that day. It was the beginning of an era in my life that leaves me breathless. I know that sounds cliche, but because of that circle of friends, I had one of the greatest high school experiences ever. 

3. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
My teeth. I hate my teeth. I need braces, but at this point in life I am saving money for a "Megan's changing her last name" party, and not for braces. 

4. What is your favorite season out of the year and why?
I used to LOVE Summer. I only felt alive in Summer, heck I still do. However, with my boyfriend being gone for weeks on end for baseball that time of year, I have quickly become less fond of the season. Now my heart belongs to Fall.

5. Who is your favorite author?
Nicholas Sparks, cliche..
and Dan Brown

6. What book would you recommend to read by he/she?
A walk to remember and The Davinci Code

7. Where do you want to take your next vacation?
I want to go on a cruise with a big group of friends. However, right now I am saving my pennies for a trip to Peru next winter for a wedding.

8. What is your favorite meal?
sushi, pasta, or chicken and dumplings or anything with a side of fried green tomatoes

9. What was the last movie you watched?
Lone Survivor

10. If you could meet one celebrity who would it be?
I love that man. I expect him to be like a neighbor, someone very down to earth.  I'd love to hear some of the stories of his career. 

These questions came from Kristie over at Kristie's Bluejeans

1. Favorite season of the year?
see above!

2. Favorite cocktail?
Burbon and Coke or a Sangria

3. Favorite TV show on?
Oh lord, there are so many!
Scandal, Vampire Diaries, How I met your mother, Big bang theory, Revenge, Pretty Little Liars, Impractical Jokers, White Collar

4. How do you feel about the hipster trend of beards?
I don't consider beards hipster, but I could care less either way. I grew up around "mountain men" so they aren't really new to me

5. What made you start blogging?
I started blogging when I was in high school. I didn't blog for followers, I simply did it more as a journal for myself. I didn't start taking blogging seriously or as a way to share with others until a year ago. Since then I've been using my blog as a way to document things going on in my life (I think of it as my digital keepsake box) or as a way to share with anyone who is willing to read.

6. If you could do one job for the rest of your life , what would it be ( sorry no stay home mom's, as much of a job as that is)?

I would love to be a wedding planner or something at a record label. I so miss being in music and the event industry. However, I feel like that ship has sailed and I am going to be doing IT stuff for the rest of my life. I'm okay with that. I like my weekends, and I like working 9am to 5pm, rather than 9pm to 5am.

7. What is one of your biggest regrets?
I don't really regret anything, but if there is anything I wish I would have done different, it would have been to  major in Music Business. I came so close to transferring and changing my major, but I was too comfortable and too anti-moving back home to do it.

8. What is the biggest thing you hope to accomplish in 2014?
As dumb as this sounds. Either put a lot of money into savings or pay off a huge hunk of student loans. Right now, it's all going into savings. 

9. One beauty trend you wished you never tried?
I have to admit, there are few beauty trends I look back on and regret. I'm not all that trendy, and I don't do things unless I LOVE them. 

10. Greatest childhood memory?
I spent practically every day of my childhood at my grandparents house. I'm not even kidding, 6 days out of the week and occasionally 7. I would spend hours on hours on hours traipsing through the woods and barns. As soon as the dew on the grass dried, I was outside until it was too dark to see anymore and my grandma was calling me in for dinner. My imagination was always churning. I had all of the forts I had made with some old pieces of junk laying around the farm. One of them is still there today. I loved days spent with my grandma and granddaddy
