Liebster Award round dos!

Hi pretties! The sweet Hollie from Sincerely, Hollie nominated me for the Liebster Award! Thanks, girl ;) I was curious as to what 'liebster' meant. Turns out it's a German word translated to English as sweetheart or darling. LOVE that! And if you could tell me how to pronounce it I'd love you!
I really enjoyed reading Hollie's post & getting to the girl behind the blog. I'm lucky enough to have been nominated a second time for this award! I really enjoyed my first go 'round so I'm excited for this one! If you're interested in getting to know the me from last year - liebster award round uno! The blogger I am has changed, I'll tell you that! It was fun to go back and read my random facts, the way I answered the questions & the questions I asked! This time around I didn't so much try to fit a mold. I definitely have grown in that aspect. No more trying to fit in; that's silly! 

Let's begin, shall we?!
1. The nominee must acknowledge the nominator. Check out Hollie's post here.
2. 11 facts about yourself

4. Nominate 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers

Some random stuff about me:
1. Thor is my favorite - Chris Hemsworth is the epitome of male
2. If I'm watching An Affair to Remember it is best to not speak to me for at least an hour after it's over
3. Top Gun is my favorite movie
4. If a Marvel movie, Top Gun, The Holiday, or a Transformers movie is on TV I will drop everything to watch it - I own most of these
5. I can't stand anything artificially flavored orange. I love orange juice & oranges, but if it's artificially flavored, it's not coming near my mouth
6. Redbull make me want to vom I don't want that in my mouth either - a few too many 'bombs'  in my formative years
7. During the Olympics, if a United Statesian gets gold - when the Flag raises and the National Anthem plays I get teary eyed.
8. What color are my eyes? I usually can't answer that question accurately - they change constantly
9. I'm a Pandora junkie - the jewelry - not the internet radio
10. I once learned that I have enough Kenny Chesney on my phone to get me from Savannah, GA to home; a 700 some odd mile journey - no repeats
11. My family and I once drove to Vegas - it was def National Lampoon style

So I only tagged 5. The thing with that is I didn't want to be grappling around to make it to my 11 under 200 followers. I have been blogging since last May, but I took a long break and am really just now starting to get involved in the community with link ups and commenting. The girls I have nominated I have discovered either through link ups or browsing bloglovin' & genuinely enjoy their content. I didn't want to just tag 11 random people that I didn't follow or spend a whole lot of time looking at their blog, it seemed insincere. I think this is an amazing way to discover new blogs and make new friends! I'm just not the type to choose people at random. I like to read and 'get to know' people. Every blog I check out the 'about me' page is always where I go second, after I read the initial post that drew me in!
Have a great day, pretty girls! thanks so much for stopping by!
