Thith hurths...

things I've accomplished today:

1. On the way to work I sneezed so hard I got boogers/loogies on my dashboard this morning.  While (I'm sure) pretty comical to watch, it was actually quite dangerous (and disgusting) trying to wipe it off, without smearing it from here to kingdom come...

2. I am officially no longer in possession of ANY WISDOM TEETH! (Don't worry, the wisdom has not left the building... although some may argue otherwise... especially when I made comments such as "oh yes, please, shoot me up, Novocaine is great for teeth pulling" and "no, no - I did not feel that needle at all!" [utter lie] to the oral surgeon this afternoon...)

3. While nursing a gaping hole in my mouth, I efficiently took care of myself for dinner, as Eric is visiting his family (brief melancholia here - his grandfather is officially on morphine and hospice, thoughts and prayers for his family as they go through this time...)

4. I got nominated for the faaaah-bulous Liebster Blog Award , an award nominated by fellow bloggers, and given to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.  

My fellow blogger-nominator is the lovely aspGriswold (who is currently going through her 2nd, and hopefully last ((because its so SUCCESSFUL!)) round of IVF, send her T&P's!) who has posed the following questions:

1) If you were a pickle in a jar, where would you want to be and why? Maybe an episode of Veggie Tales, cuz then I'm a walking TALKING pickle in a jar!
2) What is your favorite holiday? When I was in college, and all about letting my girl-goods hang out (you know, husband and b/f free!) it was Slut-o-ween, but now - definitely Christmas.  I know its not yet Halloween, but I'm shameless admitting to stalking the Christmas aisles at the stores already!
3) If you have a bucket list, what is the most ridiculous thing on it? How about a Buggy List? eh?! (see what I did there? =P) 
The most ridiculous thing on this current list might be getting a new tattoo, but considering I already have five it's not quite ridiculous I guess... I definitely want to scuba though - like, full-breathing-apparatus-required-scuba diving...
4) If you could only watch one disney movie for the rest of your life, which one would it be and why? It's gonna have to be one with reallllly good music (god bless N.apster back in the day - my sister and I downloaded every Disney song, karaoke style, and sang our LittleMermaidLoving hearts out...) so yea, either Little Mermaid or The Lion King (I just can't. pick. one.)
5) What is your favorite nursery rhyme? I'm not sure this is technically a "nursery rhyme" but my mom said it to me once and I'll never forget:
"There once was a girl
with a little curl
right in the middle of her forehead.
And when she was good,
she was very good.
And when she was bad, she was HORRID."
I love it cuz I have curly hair... and can get pretty horrid... =P
6) Do you have any pets? If no, why not? I <3 my furbabies!! 
Zoey and Rocco, the two best friends that ANYONE can have!
7) Is your current hair color your natural hair color? Why yes, it is - the first time I can say that in a few years!
8) What do you like to do in your spare time? read - anything I can get my hands on, but currently 50 Shades of Grey (again) and Stephen King (for halloween!) and play piano - my free therapy
9) If you could be any crayon color, which would you choose to be? Cerulean.
10) What is the furthest you have been away from home and where was it? HOME being where parents are (cuz mine have lived in NJ, MA, and TX since I've been born!)  - Italy, on our honeymoon, was the farthest. Second farthest was Alaska!
11) How old were you when you got your first cell phone? 16 - I didn't get a cell phone until I was old enough to drive.  And even then, it was mostly used to receive calls from mom such as "Honey, stop and pick up milk on the way home please!"

SO - now it's my turn to nominate some kick-ass blogs (and some kickASS blog authors) to receive the Liebster Blog Award  and to answer 11 questions created by moi (and I hope it's ok to change the rules a little, highlighting 6 blogs instead of the 11, as that would basically wipe out my blogroll and double nominate a few people...)

1. Katherine over at Grow Baby Grow
