Stolen from the sweet lady that awarded me, "I was nominated for a Liebster blog award! For those of you who don't know, this award is passed along from new blogger to new blogger as a way of saying "I like what you're doing. Keep up the good work!". Liebster is a German term of endearment."

Thank you so much Erin at The Fashionable Gamer!

When you receive the award, you're supposed to post 11 random things about yourself, answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you, nominate 11 blogs of your own and post 11 questions for them to respond to. The best thing about this is that it's for blogs with less than 200 followers , so it's a great way to get exposure as well as connect with others.

11 Random Facts About Moi!

1.  I am 25, and my birthday is December 21st (Christmas Baby).

2.  I love anything that is pink and sparkles.  

3. I love playing my PS3,  mostly games that involve blood, gore, and/or zombies.  Morbid I know!

4.  I love tattoos and have two.  I am planning a third one at the moment, and if you know anyone that can draw and knows anything about Harry Potter comment below!

5.  I can play 3 instruments:  clarinet, bass clarinet, and piano.  Marching Band nerd right here!

6. My best friend and I have been friends since we were in first grade.  

7.  I love all music including classical and jazz!

8.  I can not do my own hair.  To fix it in any other way than straight or curly I have to call in the troops.

9.  I hate my name.  I always wished secretly my name was Veronica.  It sounds so much more exciting than Jessica.

10.  I really really love to travel and want to go to Ireland, Italy, and the UK more than anything else right now.

11. I absolutely love cooking, but can not bake to save my own life!

and the 11 questions from Erin...

1.) How did you come up with the name of your blog?

Southern Ramblings came about from my love of all things southern, and the fact that I love to talk!  I ramble on and on when I am talking about things I love.  This blog is for me to talk about all the things that I would usually ramble on about, with all my lovelies on the interweb.
2.) Can you see yourself still blogging 5 years from now?

I hope more than anything that I am blogging in 5 years I would love to see how much I grow as a person in that time.

3.) If you won the lottery right now (the Mega Millions jackpot is at 32 million at the moment), what would you do?

I would pay off all our cars first, and then I would start sending huge checks to all my favorite charities because I know winning would never happen.  I don't gamble!  I would then buy a lake house, and start my own business helping the elderly find the services they need to make their lives better.  I would also buy my husband all the farming equipment he needs, and some land to farm on his own.

4.) If you could only eat one food, everyday, for every meal, for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Humm... this is a hard one, I have so many favorites.  Ok now readers don't laugh, I think I could eat cheese every meal for the rest of my life if it was done in different ways.

5.) Do you like to read? If so, what are some your favorite reading materials?

Oh my, I LOVE reading.  I love the Harry Potter series.  I also love Stephen King and 99.9% of his novels.  Anne Rice is also a favorite author of mine.

6.) Who would play you if your life was a movie?

Well I would love Emma Watson to play me but only because I love her and her acting.  More realistically Nikki Blonsky.  She is an amazing plus size actress that needs to be in more movies.
7.) What songs would be on the soundtrack of your life?

Well this one I have never thought about.  I guess  Semi Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind, You Found Me by The Fray, Sweet Southern Comfort by Buddy Jewel. I hope to have so many more tracks to add!  Like the Lullaby song when we have kids!
8.) What are some of your hobbies?

I don't really have time for hobbies right now.  I have tried my hand at a couple such as: scrap-booking and wreath making.  I asked my husband and he said my hobby was reading!

9.) What are some of your talents?

Helping people.  I love to help people.  I have always been the friend that everyone came to when they had problems.  I love it.  And I can cook.

10.) What was/is your least favorite subject in school?

Math.  I am horrible at math!  It makes me cry thinking about all the hours I have put into getting through college math!
11.) What is your favorite color?

Hot Pink!!!!
