Winner, Winner

Sooo....I've been a very bad blogger and have just now taken the time to post this. Sorry girlies!! I sincerely appreciate you thinking of me for a nomination! :) 

I was nominated by....

Courtney @ exodus31three

The lovely ladies I nominated are daily reads for me, so I strongly suggest you check them out! They're all marvelous!

The Rules:
1. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
2.  Answer the questions that the nominator set for you.
3.  Create 11 questions for the people you nominate.
4.  Choose 11 blogs you love (with less than 200 followers) and link them in your post.
5.  No tag back (but please leave me a comment on this post with the URL to your Liebster post so I can learn more about you)!

And since I'm a bad blogger, I'm going to cheat on the rules and make a hybrid of all three lovely ladies' questions!

Random Things:
1. I have a habit of reading a book at red lights while waiting for the light to turn.
2. I can't stand for my food to touch on my plate. eww.
3. I have an obsession with polka dots (currently wearing my polka dot pjs!)
4. I am my husband's beautician. (I can only do buzz cuts, so don't come to my home wanting a fancy do.)
5. I get carsick very easily.
6. And speaking of carsick--I can't stand the thought of vomit. If I see/hear it in a movie, I immediately feel sick.
7. I can't stay up late without feeling yucky the next day.
8.Which makes me a major morning person. I would rather be at work by 6:00 AM as to stay late.
9.  I drink coffee every night before bed--and still go to bed around or before 10.
10.  I only wash my hair about once a week. (hooray for dry shampoo!)
11. I am not very domestic, but I'm trying! :)

My 11 Questions:

1.  What is your favorite color? Can I pick two? Pink & Navy--preferably together.
2.  Why did you start blogging and how long have you been doing it? I started just a few months ago. I was working out of town for a few months and was extremely bored. I decided blogging would be a great way to document my life. An online scrapbook of sorts.
3.  What do you do for a living? I'm a tax accountant--which is why this blog will probably start being neglected in the coming months. blah
4.  What household chore is your least favorite? Umm..I honestly hate all of them. haha! Probably mopping if I had to choose.
5.  Dogs or cats? DOGS--no question!
6.  What are your favorite hobbies? Reading and watching television. I do both way too much.
7.  What was your first concert? Reba!
8.  Who can make you laugh the most and why? Definitely the hubs--that's why I keep him around! :)
9. What's your favorite & least favorite thing about the city you live in? Least favorite is hands down the lack of eating places! I love to make plans to eat out every weekend, and there are not many options for Olive Branch. (I don't technically live in Memphis, so we have to drive a little if we want to eat any place good.) My favorite would probably be my church home and the wonderful friends I've made here!
10.  Flats or heels? I prefer to wear heels (I'm of the camp that wearing heels makes you look skinnier), but my husband and I are the same height. I don't like to be a Nicole to his Keith.

1.   Finish this sentence...if you want to spoil me rotten, buy me...? Kate Spade anything--she can do no wrong.
