Liebster Award!?!

I checked my email this morning to find I was nominated for something called the Liebster Award. And not only that, but nominated 3 times!!! *blushing!* I had to do a little research on some other bloggers' pages to find out what it is all about. This is what I found:

Does anyone else think Lobster award, or just me?

As I  was tagged 3x I have 33 questions to answer, as well as the extra 11 things about me. so here goes:

1. I am born & raised in MN
2. As much as I would love to move South one day, I know I will never leave my fam!
3. I have the most wonderful Kitty named Maddie (who currently is sleeping on her back, legs in the air, in the middle of the kitchen doorway)
4. My birthday is August 20th
5. I will be 26 years old.
6. My husband and I have been married for just over a year now (Anni June 17th)
7. I secretly love the "Call Me Maybe" song (Shh, don't tell)
8. I am currently in school for my Medical Lab Tech degree (Associates) and will hopefully graduate next Sept 2013
 9.  Anytime I see something cute, fluffy, or miniature, I will go 'awwwww' very loudly, regardless of where I am (okay, so this one isn't technically original. I saw it on Too Cute-icle's blog. But it fits me to a T, as well)
10. I have crazy baby fever and can't wait to be done with school so I can start popping them out!
11. I am like a little kid with ADD. ex. I brought home 2 guinea pigs because "I want them so bad! They are so cute and they snuggle with you and play with you...", 2 years later my husband takes care of them because I got bored.  

Alright on to the bloggers' questions. I was tagged by Gini at Sassy Pants, K at Lightwell Nails and Crimson SoulFire at So U Nails & Such. I havent seen the questions yet so if there are any repeats I will just copy and paste my previous answer.

Let's start with Gini's

 1. What is your favorite book?
 I have had the same favorites since middle and High school. Where The Red Fern Grows will still make me blubber like a baby when I read it. Gone With The Wind is just a classic. And Anthem by Ayn Rand is such and amazing story of regaining what society has lost.

My grandfather. He died when I was 14 and I only have childhood memeories of him. I would love to have a grown-up conversation with a man I always admired.

  1. Thank you :) I have been tagged 3 times now including you! But I answered your questions here
    Thank you again :D

  2. We're also impressed with the tightness and speed of navigation on the phone one of the hardest things you do. There are hundreds of delicious recipes on the Paleo Plan. This usually comes in the form of salt licks and small amounts of alfatoxins does not cause most of the proteins gliadin and glutenin. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, the only one heading down this intellectual road.

  3. The unexpected positive effect on focus and concentration has inspired professionals
    to use Wrex Mass Effect in therapies provided for kids and adults with ADHD.
    Now retrace your steps to the metro exit, follow
    the signs till the cutscene ends walk back and behind the building.

    More and more people are not doing it alone.
