Little Bit of Sass Thursday - Liebster Award!

I was so tickled when I read Olivia's blog post yesterday - she nominated me for the Liebster Award! Such a sweetie, thanks Olivia!!!

A Liebster Award is a way for fellow bloggers to recognize their friends in the blogging community. In a way it is a "pay it forward" link up party that makes it possible for the recipients to gain more followers and interest on their little part of the world wide web.

I am supposed to answer a few questions and then nominate other bloggers for the award.
What's funny is that most of the bloggers I would nominate either 1) have received this award recently or 2) don't read my blog.

So I'll just give a shout out to a long list of my favorite bloggers because I love them. 
I even know some of them in real life! Imagine that!!

Obviously Olivia from Mother May I
Kristyn, my Wedding Wednesday co-host, from Chits & Giggles
Stephanie, my favorite Chicago blogger-in-crime, from Not Entirely Perfect
Taylor, another favorite Chicago blogger, from The Daily Tay
Rachel, another favorite, from Raves & Revelations
Sweet Susan, another favorite, from A Little Ray of Sunshine
All of the amazing ladies from Wedding Wednesday - there are way too many to name but I seriously look forward to reading their updates every week and writing back and forth! It's so fun!
Janelle from Undomestic Bliss
Maureen from Mo In A Box
A new friend, Katie Elizabeth
Ana, my hilarious and dear friend, from Accidentally Sexy
Michelle, from Sweet Musings
Megan from Style Me Swanky
Carly from College Prepster
Mackenzie from Design Darling
Diane, from A Spot of Whimsy
Lauren from Aspiring Kennedy
Danielle from Breakfast at Toast
Alaina from Live Creating Yourself (she and Danielle are the brains behind the amazing Everygirl)
Kathleen from Carrie Bradshaw Lied
Chelsea from Hello Miss Chelsea
Christina from Hungry Meets Healthy
Jackie from Jade and Oak
Leeann from Join the Gossip
Kendi from Kendi Everyday
Emily from Be Blessed, Ya'll

And wow I read a lot of blogs because there are so many more!!! 
I had to stop there, but I have other daily reads.

Isn't this blog world fun??

Anyway, on to the questions that I'm supposed to answer:

1) What's up? Seriously, what's happening right when you type this?
I'm sipping my latte and looking between my spreadsheets and powerpoints and this here blog, that's what. Yep, real exciting.

2) How did you come up with your blog name?
Honestly, this blog is an old gal. I first started to document a couple of stories a year starting back in June 2009 (Oh my I'm re-reading some of these posts from way back when. My favorite is right here about being pale). I honestly don't remember how I came up with this blog name but I do remember that my other option was "AHHHHNEEDABEER." What? I was working at a law firm, about to start grad school. I did need one.

3) What is your favorite part about blogging?
The other bloggers! I love having an online group of a non-ICQ-creepy-kind of way, of course. I love to connect with people. My wallet hates that I blog, though, I will say that. Many of my purchases are because I saw another blogger wear/buy/promote different things.

4) Least favorite?
Honestly, I have two least-favorites. First, I feel like it can be a popularity contest, and sometimes I just don't feel like participating. Second, I can't divulge everything that I would like for fear of who might read it. Sometimes I wish I could be anonymous!

5) What's the very first outfit you can remember wearing?
My OshKosh B'gosh overalls. Pink and corduroy. Not gonna lie, I was kind of adorable from ages 3-5. All downhill after then, though.

6) What's the last makeup product you bought?
My Nars blush. You know what it's called, don't make me say it!

7) Did you have an "awkward phase" growing up? Describe it!
I'm still growing out of it. Picture pimples, glasses and braces. *shudder*

8) What's your all-time favorite movie?
Oy, that's a toughie. I have too many. 

9) What are you wearing as you type this?
A royal blue top tucked into my houndstooth skirt with black tights and black patent leather flats. It was above 10 degrees this morning, totally skirt weather! Yay heat wave!

10) It's the weekend, do you go out, or prefer to stay in? Why?
Depends on my mood, the weather and my bank account balance.

11) What's your all-time favorite song?
Again, too many to say. 

That's all, folks!
