1-2-3 Neat & Tidy's Liebster Award!

I have exciting news for this little blog today!  It was nominated by Amanda from A Touch of That for a Liebster Award!  I've heard of these awards, but never thought my blog would actually get one.  It's really an honor and thank you so much Amanda for the nomination!  (P.S. Check out her blog!  She has some amazing ideas.) 

So what is the Liebster Award?  It's a blog award given to blogs with less than 200 followers and consists of three parts…11 facts about the blogger, nominating 11 new bloggers with less than 200 followers for the award and giving 11 new questions for those nominated bloggers to answer.  

Here are my 11 facts about myself.
11 Facts about me...

1.)  In high school I had all my clothes in my double closet organized into a rainbow! 
2.)  My favorite food is Chinese food!  Like seriously, I could eat it every day!
3.)  I am obsessed with organization supplies and office supplies.  I can get lost in those isles for hours at a store!
4.)  I'm a couponer.
5.)  Target is my favorite store, as you can see from my blog. 
6.)  I started this blog to motivate myself to get organized.
7.)  I used to have a coupon blog, but it became too much for me to keep up with. 
8.)  I have two older brothers and two older sisters.  I'm the baby. =)
9.)  I love making lists!
10.)  I can't turn down a good puzzle or puzzle game. 
11.)  I love to help others. 

Here are the list of questions Amanda gave me to answer.

1.) What's the #1 thing you'd like to get done this summer?
I'd like to start a vegetable garden.  I don't have a green thumb though, so we'll see how it goes.  

2.) What's your favorite go to recipe?
Pasta and sausage!  It's the easiest and fastest thing for me to make!  I don't really cook that much though, so I'm open to suggestions to new recipes. 

3.) Do you have a hobby?
I would say that organizing is my hobby.  I love to do it! 

4.) What's the most random item in your purse right now?
A fast food strawberry jam packet!  Yup, you read right.  I'm usually in a hurry in the morning when going to work, so I'll make some toast and take it with me along with some strawberry jam packets.  

5.) Who is your celebrity crush?
Johnny Depp

6.) What is the one area in your home you find yourself constantly re-organizing?
I have a Junk closet!  I've done several posts showing this closet and each time I've had to deep clean it before taking pictures, but it always ends up messy.  This is something I hope to tackle soon. 

7.) What's your favorite season?
I love Fall!  It's not too hot and not too cold!  You can get away with wearing a light cardigan and still feel comfortable.  I also love Halloween, so that's an extra Fall plus. 

8.) Why did you start blogging?
I originally started blogging because I love to write and writing in journals wasn't cutting it for me.  I wanted to share with others what I was writing while also seeing what others where sharing too.  I started this blog, however, to keep myself accountable in trying to get organized.  

9.) What are your go to colors when decorating your home?
Lately I've been into turquoise and red!  I love they way they look together.  I incorporate them through accessories. 

10.) What is your favorite summer activity?
Going on Vacations has to be my favorite summer activity!  

11.) Do you have any pets?
I have a small chihuahua who thinks she's a baby. =)

So now that you know a little more about me, lets move on to a few other bloggers I was able to find.  I searched high and low, and though I didn't find 11 blogs, I did find these four wonderful bloggers to nominate!  



Now for your 11 questions

1.)  Why did you start your blog?
2.)  If you have a free 30 minutes all to yourself, what would you do?
3.)  Who is your favorite author and why?
4.)  What is your favorite food?
5.)  What is your favorite part of your house?
6.)  What is your pet peeve?  
7.)  If you were a super hero, what power would you have?
8.)  What's the most exciting thing you've done this summer so far? 
9.)  Name one thing that would be at the top of your bucket list.
10.)  What words do you live by?
11.)  What is your favorite post that you have written and why?
