Liebster Award | Sweet Treats Swap Partner | Kitchen

First things first...
The lovely Tarabelle over at A Drop Of Ink nominated me for a Liebster award! 
Love her, her blog, and that she nominated me...whatwhat
What is a Liebster award?
This is an award for blogs with 200 or less followers. It's a way to say "keep up the great work" to each other! When you are nominated you post 10 random facts about yourself and answer 10 questions from the person who nominated you. Then pass the award onto other bloggers you think deserve it.
. . .
Here are the ten questions for me to answer: 
1. | Would you rather see a movie at a theater or at home on DVD?
Depends on the movie...sometimes you just have to see it on the big screen...but mostly i'm good with watching it at home on the couch, with a blanket, so i can cry/laugh/scream as loudly as i want if i need to. 
2. | Which movie makes you cry?
Every time? Hmmm...The Gladiator. Ugh, when he sees his family as he is dying, i just turn into a blubbering slob. 
3. | Name one book you had to read but hated.
There aren't many books i HAD to read and hated...maybe when i was in school, but i'm having a hard time recalling any of this one i'm not answering, woops.
4. | Which is the best vacation you've ever had?
Hmmm...i've had MANY. Camp when i was a student & leader, and then my two week road trip with my roomie {and cara for a leg of it}...that was a BLAST.
5. | If you could have a luncheon with any three people (real or fictitious/from any time period/dead or alive), which three people would you choose? 
My mom & dad {they have both passed away} annnnndddddddd....Moses. 
6. | If given complete freedom to start afresh, what profession would you choose?
 I'm sticking with Youth Ministry. 
7. | Bath or shower?
Shower, all the way. Baths are nice though...but dirty. yuck.
8. | Last thing you bought?
9 | Did you watch Trading Spaces? was one of my favorite shows. 
10. | What do you do when you are sad to make yourself happy again? 
Hmmmm...pray, listen to music, read, watch a tv show, hang out with my peeps.
. . .
Ten Random Facts: 
1. | My hair turns into dreads if i don't brush it for two days. 
2. | I don't own a real brush. I have a pick wide tooth comb...and i can only brush my hair when it's wet
3. | If i can't fall straight asleep i'm known to toss and turn and toss and turn and toss and turn and sometimes get out of bed and do jumping me it's happened. 
4. | My friends tell me i need to be a make-up consultant...meh that could be fun. 
5. | I used to play softball and hit 8 foul balls in a row before hitting it all the way into center field.
6. | One of my nick names used to be "Amester the Gospel Gangster". You're welcome.
7. | I'm terrified of cutting the bushes in the back of my house because my broseph got a horrible case of poison ivy last thank you. 
8. | I want to sit down and watch a documentary on Edgar Allen Poe...anyone know of any good ones?
9. | I dont think i've ever slept for over 10 hours...ever...even when i was sick. {10 hours is a LOT}
