5. You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees.

Questions I had to answer:

1. If you could be anyone for a day who would you be and why? Olivia Wilde. She is so down to earth and so funny. I would just want to see the world from her eyes for a day, give me that new perspective. 35th Annual People's Choice Awards - Arrivals2. What is your favorite movie? American History X. It’s so gut wrenching and Edward Norton is just brilliant. I watch it about once every few years, it’s too emotional to watch more often. But I can still remember the first time I saw it and the reaction my heart had to the pain of that movie. Just amazing. 

American-History-X-1998-Poster3. If you could get one re-do in life what would it be? I regret nothing. Everything I’ve done has gotten me to where I am today, made me who I am today. But it would have been nice to go to college with all my friends, spent the four years in dorm life, on campus, being immersed in that world. My three years at community college, two years off and then struggle for three years as a transfer student has really strengthened me and shaped me but some days I wonder what it would have been like to do it the “normal” way.

4. What made you start your blog? I really needed to get back into writing. My husband suggested blogging. I took one look at WordPress and I was hooked!

5. If your house caught on fire and you could only grab 3 things what would you grab? Scout, Indie, my pillow. Scout (chocolate point Siamese) and Indie (Tortie) are my kitties. Inside my pillow is the blanket I have had my entire life. It has been everywhere with me. At almost 30 it seems a childish thing to take with me, but the memories that come with it I wouldn’t ever want to lose.

7. What are three things on your bucket list that you want to accomplish? Finish my novel. Publish my novel. Travel more.

8. What is your favorite page on my blog? At this day and time…your answers to the Liebster award. It was a quick ten answer insight into you as a person. http://lovetheskinyoureindesiree.wordpress.com/2013/09/09/the-liebster-awards/

9. What is the biggest challenge you have overcome? At this moment I don’t know how to answer to this question. Each struggle we deal with seems like the biggest challenge at that time. And most of the really life changing ones are something you work on the rest of your life. I think just overcoming the fear that holds me back, fear of failure, fear of rejection. I think just doing something new (blogging, Zumba, for example) is what keeps that fear at bay and reminds me I can do this. 

10. Wine or Beer? Wine. I mean I’ll have a beer occasionally but I’m the girly girl who prefers a nice glass of white. Or prosecco.
