A Bittersweet Award Post

This is a bittersweet post for me.  I have been awarded the Liebster award again by 3 lovely ladies.  As I have stated the previous times I love getting the award and I think it is a great way for "y'all" to get to know me.  Now it is bittersweet because this will most likely be the last time I post on this award but only because since their nominations I have reached to 200 followers friends mark.  I want to also thank all my friends for being awesome and welcome my new friends too {you are awesome as well}.

So anyways.... These THREE lovely ladies have honored me with this award : Chelsea, Courtney, and Jamie!!  Thank you again for the award.  I truly appreciate it and love answering your questions.  Now if you are reading this and do not know these ladies, well I highly recommend you check them out as well :)

11. I tend to over think everything.

1. If you could be any animal what would you be?  I would a dog (ha, kinda funny from the girl named "Cat") I picked a dog because they are always loyal, love attention and want to be by your side all the time.  They are a real companion. 
2. What was your first job?  Well I worked at an after-school program for a few weeks when I was in high school until it interfered with my dance classes/competition team etc. HA But my first job I would say would be when I was a hair stylist and worked in a salon.

8.  What is you best quality?  I am very caring and love helping others.
9. Are you a spontaneous person or scheduled?  Well that depends I can be both.  But I will say if I do have something scheduled I like to keep it that way and if something happens I can freak out ha.  BUt on the other hand I enjoy doing things spontaneous as well!
10. If you could be on a TV show, which one would it be?  I am pretty sure not any on TV today!  OK well maybe extreme makeover ??  IDK

2.  What is your favorite & least favorite about the city you live in?  Well I love it is a small town and it is pretty "country" but on the other hand we do not have the best economy/job market {who does} and we don't have any really good restaurants.
3. Would you ever consider living in a different country? if so where?  Well I had always said I was going to live in Europe but that didnt happen.  But yes I would if my family ever needed to relocate or if God ever called us to move etc I would hope I would be able to maintain full faith and go for it!
