And the Nomination Goes to...


I feel so honored to have been nominated for this blogging award considering I'm pretty new at this whole thing AND to have been nominated by two different people (thanks Kathryn and Rachael)!!

So without further ado, here are the rules:

  1. Link back to the blogger that nominated you: Check! See above.
  2. Answer the 11 questions requested by the nominator. Check. See below.
  3. Choose 11 nominees with small followings (from as small as 200 or 2,000).
  4. You can not nominate the person who nominated you. I don't think I broke this, but who knows it's getting late over here.
  5. You must let the bloggers know they were nominated. 

Kathryn's Questions:

1. What Starbucks drink would you order, if you were only allowed to order one for the rest of your life? Duh. Breve White Mocha. (fo lyfe yo)
2. What was the worst date you ever went on? Basically any of the times I hung out with any of my ex boyfriends.  
3. What is the reasoning behind your blog name? I love love love the movie Because I Said So. I used to watch it everyday. No lie. The relationship the three girls have with the mom is basically the relationship me and my two sisters have with our mom so hence the name! (Sorry dad, you don't have a role in the movie)
4. What is your favorite theme park and why? (If you say Disneyland, we need to plan a trip) Disney World..sorry Kathryn...I've never been to Disneyland, but I'm sure I'd love it too!
5. Are you a breakfast person? If yes, what is your favorite breakfast food? I'm more of a "brunch" person. I can't/don't eat breakfast early in the morning. Any kind of pancakes, french toast, or beignets are my fave.
6. Coffee or tea and why? (As I'm on my second cup.. oops!) Coffee. With lots of sugar and milk and barely any coffee haha. I can't drink coffee black nor do I drink any kind of tea. So much for being "Southern"
7. What is your favorite Justin Timberlake song? Rock Your Body (imma have you naked by the end of this song..ok JT)
8. If you were to have a super power what would it be and why? To hear what my dog is thinking. It would be totes interesting I'm sure.
9. PC or Mac? MAC!!
10. What is the worst gift you have ever received? Well...this time Josh put a duck in my car. Not really a present, but a bad surprise.
11. If you were only allowed to have one form of social media (not including your blog) what would you keep? Twitter for sure. I like being to update everyone with my off the cuff thoughts.

Rachael's Questions:

1.What is your signature Starbucks drink? Breve White Mocha with a straw
2. What's the strangest advice that you've ever been given, yet you swear by it? "Liquor before beer, in the clear. Beer before Liquor never sicker."
3. What non-profit organization do you support? Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. LIOB!
4. What was the reasoning behind your parent's choice for your name? I was going to be a boy until the moment I was born. And that was before boy name's were cool for girls. So, Allison it is.
5. Are you a shower singer? If so, what songs are in your watery set list? For sure...Anything broadway musical. (what can I say, I was born to perform) Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, etc.
6. What's the worst date you've ever been on? Anything having to do with my ex boyfriends.
7. Do you have any tattoos? Nope.
8. What do you think the fox says? Definitely not dingdingdingdingding or anything the song says it says
9. If you were 16, what advice would you have given your future (current) self? Don't take everything so seriously.
10. What song would be on the soundtrack of your life? Why Not by Lizzie McGuire/Hilary Duff 
11. What is something embarrassing about yourself?  When I was little, I was nicknamed Big Al. And it stuck. I'm not even big and it makes me sound like a 40 year old bald man.

  1. Aww, thank you for the nomination! I like your questions; it will be fun to answer them!!

    I think being able to talk to animals would be really cool (although I am pretty sure my cat's demands are focused on "more snackz" and "let me sit on that")

  2. Hi there! Found your blog through your Treats and Travels sidebar ad....congrats on your nomination. It's a great way to showcase new bloggers like ourselves (I just started in Dec). Count me as your newest follower! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


    1. Yay! Welcome to my crazy, hectic, usually dramatic life! xoxo

  3. White mocha is amazing, and I love that movie for the same reason! My mom has that same well intentioned "managing" trait as the mom in the movie. My goal in life is to dress like the mom when I am older.(lol) I just love the way they styled her wardrobe. Super chic and classy with all the A-line skirts and pearl necklaces. (& polka dots!) Love it!

    1. YES! My mom too! I love love love the way she dresses too :)

  4. I posted about my liebster award! I hope you'll come check it out! Plus I know where question 9 comes from!

    1. I'm so glad you posted where it came from! I couldn't think of it for the life of me!
