winner, winner!

You guys!  I received my very first blog award!  The awesome Angel from Diary of an Alien gave me the Liebster Award!

I'm seriously excited about this, folks.  (It doesn't take much.  I'm easy to please.)

Okay. Here are the rules. When you get the award, you have to...
1. Link the person who nominated you.
2. Share 11 random facts about yourself.
3. Answer the 10 Liebster questions given by the person who nominated you.

4. Pick 10 bloggers with under 200 followers to be nominated for the award.
* I assume that's under 200 on Bloglovin but I can't be certain. 

5. Come up with 10 questions for your nominees to answer.

6. Notify your nominees by commenting on their blogs. 

Nominees: PLEASE comment on this post with the link to your post.

I recently posted about my confessions with 10 little known facts about me. I guess I will have to dig a little more, or get a little more creative with these.  So, without further delay I present 11 random facts about me.

1. As a kid, I wanted to be a rodeo clown when grew up.  My dad told me that I couldn't be one because I was a girl, so I settled on dreaming to be a professional barrel racer.
2.  I am an unmedicated, well-adjusted ADHD kid.  At least I consider myself to be well-adjusted.    
3. I am a drummer and have been playing for 18 years.  I also play guitar, bass, piano and sing.
4.  I was voted School Clown my junior and senior year of high school.
5.  My brother is a pilot for Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert.
6.  I absolutely love dogs and would probably adopt every one I saw if it was up to me.
7.  I was headed to the University of Texas to study law....but there was this boy.  Stupid life choices 1, Me 0.  I am, however, a Texas Longhorns super fan.
8.  My wrists are my favorite part of my body.  True story.
9.  When I have an OCD "episode," my forearms tingle and ache.
10.  I have lived in Texas my whole life except for the 5 years I lived in California.
11.  I have 2 businesses.  Radwagon Photography & RowdyRooms (mural painting).

And now, here are Angel's questions for me:

1. What is your very first memory of childhood?  Playing my Mickey Mouse "good-tar" at my Mamaw's house in my Care Bear footie pajamas.

2. Do you have any pets?  Yes.  I have a 4 month old Boxer pup named Jackson ("Jax").

3. Would you rather live in the city, country, or suburbs? And where do you live now?  I have always preferred living in the country.  I currently live in "town."

4. What book do you think I should read?  If you haven't already, read "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies".  Golden.

5. If someone gave you a million dollars BUT said you don't get to keep it for yourself... you have to use it to make positive changes in the world... what would you do with it?  I would definitely use it to fund a legit music program at my alma mater in honor of my music mentor, Jeff Sweet.

6. What is your favorite fast food restaurant?  Sonic!  Cherry Diet Coke.  Orange Vanilla Sprite.  Purple O.  Yaaayy!!

7. What band do you think I should check out?  Knox Hamilton.  Love those guys!

8. What is your favorite holiday?  Christmas....soooo much.

9. What do you want for Christmas?  A house!  I think we've finally found the one!

10. Who would win in a fight... Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny?  I'm putting my odds on the Easter Bunny.  Rabbits are scrappy and pack a pretty mean kick.

Okay. Whew.
I now have to nominate ten people for this award. This is also going to be hard because I have no clue who's already been nominated.  I'll just pick 10 of my fave blogs. 

8 Bit Heart
The Pixel Party

 If you've already gotten it before, I totally won't be mad if you skip it this time around! 

OK. If you do choose to participate, here are your ten questions...
1.  What is the #1 most played song on your iPod?
2.  If you were reincarnated as an animal/drink/ice cream flavor, what would it be?
3.  Who is your celebrity doppelganger?
4.  If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
5.  If you were to get a tattoo, what (and where) would it be?
6.  What’s one guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up?
7.  If you could have any pet in the world, illegal or not, what would you get?
8.  What is the most exciting thing you have ever done?
9.  If you could change your first name, what would it be?
10. What song(s) do you find yourself humming/singing most often
And with that, we are done!  
Thanks again, Angel!


  1. Oh that's so cool! Thanks for that! I'll get right on this and come to post my link when it's ready! :)

  2. Ohh, nice! Thanks for nominating me :) I'll be trying this out

  3. Great answers! I love dogs too, and Sonic is MY favorite fast food restaurant as well... I loved it when I lived in Colorado, and when I moved back to Chicago I had to wait about 7 years before they started one here, which happened to be right in my neighborhood! And I am going to check out Knox Hamilton. Thanks for playing!
