I'm a Liebsbian

The sweet Brittany at Britt's Running Style nominated me last week for a Liebster Award! The rules of the Liebster are you list 11 random facts about yourself, answer the questions your nominator (?) gave you, then nominate some more bloggers! 

First up, my random facts:
1. I am a messy neat freak. I would rather have things all in a mess on the floor than stashed away in a closet or under a bed. If there isn't enough time to organize it, then it just stays a hot mess. Crazy.
2. My mom got a full paid vocal scholarship (that she passed on) and I cannot sing a note. That is a talent I wish I had inherited. 
3. I cannot stand any bug that could jump or fly into my hair. I have a bug-in-hair phobia. I once jumped over a seat in a moving vehicle because I spotted a grasshopper in the floor. This is even more serious considering....
4. I always wear my seat belt. I get anxiety if I do not have my seatbelt on in a car. I am afraid if I take my seatbelt off for just a second to grab something from the backseat (as a passenger not a driver) then I will have a wreck. (ps I'm a control freak)
5. I am the photographer at most events. I take lots of pics and my friends call me the photo nazi. 
6. I have 3 beautiful nieces. One of which may be coming to spend the night with us tonight. Her mom and dad have to get up early and get to the hospital for my BIL's surgery tomorrow so it would be easier for her to just stay with us. Plus, she goes to school with B so we are headed to the same place in the mornings anyways. 
7. My favorite movie is Serendipity. I love chick flicks. I love movies set in NYC. It's a win win.
8. I once ran OVER a cow. Ok it was a baby cow but still. My car went completely over it. I should mention it was laying down, and had already been run over before I hit it also so I didn't kill it. There were plenty of country jokes for me at work the next few weeks. 
9. I first heard and talked to my fiance 9 years ago but we didn't meet until 3 years ago. Confused? I will explain that one day soon. 
10. I am more superstitious than I will admit.
11. I changed my major 3 times before I stopped at accounting, a total random choice. 

Now for the Q&A sesh:

1. What is your favorite: treadmill, road, or trail? I am going with road. Trails are probably prettier but roads make more sense for me. The only trail I love to go walking through isn't really great for running. The others that I use are paved so that's basically like running on the road, ish. But most often I am on the treadmill for pure convenience. 
2. What do you have planned for races this coming year? I am running the Harbortown 5k in June. It's one of my favorite races and several of my favorite gals are running it too. Other than that I know I am doing the Grizzlies House 5K {while most people will be doing the St Jude half or full}. I will sign up for more but those are the only ones set in stone. 
3. Do you have a big or a small family? I have a nice mix of both. My mom's side of the family is pretty big. She has 5 brothers and sisters, so there are plenty of cousins. My dad is an only child so his side of the family is fairly small. 
4. Where did you grow up and what did you love about your town? I grew up in a tiny town in West TN. My parents still live there today and it is about 25 minutes from where I live now. I love how peaceful it is out there and I loved that I could basically go exploring wherever I wanted when I was a kid. 
5. What is your favorite color? Pink. Easy question there. But I love basically anything bright and colorful. 
6. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? Nope, not a chance. But I get on to Brooklyn for doing the same thing. 
7. What kind of music do you like to listen to and who is your favorite band/artist? I listen to just about everything. And I don't think I have a favorite artist/band. It changes frequently. Right now I am loving JT because I just heard he is coming to town in November. Can't wait to see my cuz! 
8. How far have you traveled from home for business or pleasure? I think the farthest West I have been is Dallas. Farthest south is Cozumel or Grand Cayman, quick grab a map and tell me which is farthest {ok looked it up, Grand Cayman wins}. Farthest north would be NYC or actually CT during my NYC trip. 
9. Who is your favorite actor/actress? Channing Tatum...purely for obvious reasons. I don't care what the movie is, if he's in it then I'm there. 
10. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? Oh now this is a tough question. There are so many artistic things I would LOVE to be able to do. But I guess if I could pick anything and actually be able to do it, it would be sing. I would sing at every little event possible if I could actually carry a tune. 
11. When you have 30 minutes of free time, how do you pass the time? Usually I do a little reading or checking out pinterest, especially since I'm in full on wedding mode from now until September. When the weather gets nicer, all my free moments will be spent outside.

That's all I have for tonight, people! If you liked those questions, then consider yourself tagged and answer them for me. If you answer, let me know you did!
