Liebster is a German word meaning “sweetest, kindest, sweatheart,” and a Liebster award is passed along to a new blogger! The nominator chooses a blog that is new, sweet, charming, and intriguing, in an attempt to get to know the blogger behind the blog better! The idea is that the award will move through the blogging community like a chain letter. I have been nominated by the beautiful and talented Bethany at http://www.saltyblonde.com
Thank you my salty blonde friend!

2. Most days, I would rather cook than go out.

3. That being said, I could eat Mexican food everyday of my life, for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.

4. I met my husband while eating breakfast bagel sandwiches in the cafeteria of our office building. Food=Love!

5. I have never been able to replicate that exact breakfast sandwich. A warm bagel, not toasted, with super fluffy scrambled eggs, crisp almost burnt bacon,and a gooey cheese sauce that most definitely came from a generic large can.  Fantastic!

6. I love to put outfits together, especially for others. I’m a good stylist if you ever happen to need one ; )

7. I am a bit OCD. I can’t relax or go to bed with a mess, a dirty dish in the sink, or the worst!! a clean dishwasher to unload.

8. I love Pittsburgh; shopping in the Strip District, the restaurants, the vibe.

9. I am the oldest of 5, which makes me the caretaker, the advice-giver, and the one who ensures everyone has enough to eat! (Plus leftovers)

10. I gained 75lbs. and 65lbs. with my pregnancies. Usually I weigh right around 100 lbs. I would eat the tops off of a dozen cupcakes driving 3 blocks.

Funny how I chose this for one of my randoms. Over breakfast sandwiches!

3. Biggest Fear?

4. Celeb crush?
We all have our lists, don’t we?! David Beckham

5. Heels or Flats?
Heels. Being 5’2″, I dont feel like people take me seriously unless I am wearing high heels, but a perfect high wedge will do.

The higher the heels the closer to God, right? Or is it hair?

Can you try botox/ fillers and never go back? I know I’m only 29 ; ) but I’m sure eventually I will need something.

I love the sun! I actually begin to relax when I’m laying in a lounge chair with a good book, but the best restaurants seem to be in city!
