One Month Blogiversary/Liebster Award

Today is my one month blogiversary!!

I would like to thank all my followers, friends, and family. 

Janet Vilar from Janet Planet Nails has awarded me the Liebster Award.
Melissa Matthews from Polish Gone Crazy has also awarded me the award.

It's an award for new blogs just to get to know you. You are to say 11 facts about yourself and answer the 11 questions they have asked you. Then you have to come up with 11 brand new questions and find 11 new blogs with less than 200 followers and nominate them. Seems like a fun little game to get to know people!

11 Facts about myself:
1. I love movies.
2. I hate haunted houses.
3. I am an electrical engineer.
4. My mom lives in Australia.
5. I love to obsessively read books, probably because my life is so boring LOL.
6. I wanted to be a vet growing up.
7. My favorite color is purple but it used to be blue.
8. I tired to adopt a kitty from the Humane Society with my dad when I was 15. They denied us because they thought I would abandon it when I went to college.
9. I've had my cat Franklin for 12 years, I got him when I was 16, and I've had my little kitty Miss Beans almost 2 years.
10. I never thought I would ever own more than 300 bottles of nail polish....
