Liebster Award

Massive thanks and shout out to Jessica who awarded me with the 'Liebster Award'.

The Liebster Award is an award given to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. Considering I've just started this blog and have hardly any followers yet it was a huge honour. :)

**Here are the details on receiving this award**
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions that the nominator set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve nominated to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. No tag backs!

Ok so here goes:

1. Bolognese is my go to pasta sauce of choice. I cannot live without bolognese and when I discover a great sauce... oh my lordy lord!

2. I had a huge crush on Leonardo Dicaprio when I was in high school. I shared a bedroom with my sister and my two walls were wallpapered in posters of him. It was Titanic that got me hooked. I was the older sister, she had no choice but to put up with it.

3. I love Zumba. I am an instructor and I love that you burn so many calories without even realising it. It's so freaking fun!

4. I am always belting out some song whilst driving. I can't help it. I crank the stereo and go for it. Poor people in the cars next to me must just laugh and laugh if they see me. I think I sound fabulous.

5. My daughter is the absolute apple of my eye. She is so funny and I am so grateful I get to spend every day with her.

6. My iPhone camera roll has 3,669 photos on it and 103 videos. (Mostly of my daughter - see above). ;)

7. New York and Japan are on top of my travel wish list.

8. Red Velvet Cupcakes are my weakness. 

9. I miss my Nanna more than anything. Especially now that I see my mum being a Nanna to my daughter, my Nan would have loved my little girl so much.

10. My husband and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary of dating. (Everyone tells me it doesn't count because we're married now).

11. My favourite brand of wine is anything by Keith Tulloch from the Hunter Valley.

Jessica's Questions

1. What did you want to be when you were little? An actress or a teacher

2. If you could own any animal what would it be? A horse. I have always wanted a horse.

3. What is your favourite TV show at the moment? Homeland. Brilliant stuff.

4. What 4 words would you use to describe yourself? Friendly, kind, silly, responsible

5. If you could be anyone for a day, who would you be and why? I'd be Hugh Jackmans wife cos he is seeexxy.

6. What is the best and worst about blogging? The best is being able to just unload on a topic instead of writing in a diary which takes longer and doesn't have pretty fonts and colours. The worst is trying to find the time to do it regularly.
