Liebster Award: Get to Know Your Fellow Bloggers.

Marci over at If These Walls Could Speak nominated me for the Liebster Award, and since I'm new around here, I thought I'd participate so you all can get to know me better. Here's how it works:

1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the questions of the person who nominated you.
3. Create 11 new questions.
4. Nominate 11 new bloggers.

Here we go!

-- 11 facts --

1. I don't like to be the first person to go after a red light turns green, just in case I'm imagining it.
2. I can cut onions without crying.
3. When I stop loving something, I stop doing it. I think it is a waste of time to do things you don't enjoy.

 Doing one of my favorite things -- hanging out with friends.

4. I can fit my entire fist in my mouth.
5. I have a tendency of making the answers to my "Forgot Your Password?" questions so complicated and hard to guess that even I often don't know the answer to them.
6. My Google+ profile says I have over 67,000 profile views. I'm pretty sure it's wrong. I'm not that popular. I also don't really use Google+.
7. I could watch game shows all day long.
8. I hate lasagna.
9. I graduated college just weeks before my 20th birthday, one year after I graduated high school.

 Me and my college diploma, for proof.

10. I shop almost exclusively at Goodwill and other thrift stores. My clothes cost an average of $4 a piece, yet my closet is stocked with brands like New York & Company and LOFT by Ann Taylor.
11.  I am 20 years old and I still have a 12-year molar that has not come in.

-- Marci's Questions --

Why did you start blogging?
I've actually been blogging for years, but recently decided I wanted to get more into it. I love writing and connecting with other bloggers. I decided to start over with a clean slate and create a new blog. Hence, Wonderfully Made was born!

What is your biggest phobia?
Spiders. Anything with 8 legs and a million tiny eyes is no friend of mine.

What is your top item on Pinterest that you really actually want to try?
This. (Next Christmas, maybe?)

What is your favorite thing to do in your city?
I really enjoy going downtown. Not anything downtown specifically, just being there. Actually, our downtown was recently rated clearly it's awesome.

 Also, my city is fun to jump over.

What is the #1 blog you would recommend someone to follow?
The depends on what you're interested in reading. This one for baking, this one for makeup/beauty tips, this one for organization, this one for interior design...and there are so many more.

  If you have to dress/get ready and leave in a hurry what is the one thing you can easily cut out of your routine? 
Doing my hair. Honestly, I hardly do anything with it even if I do have time.

  What is the single best decision you have made in your life so far?
Accepting Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Life is so much better with Him at the center of everything I do.

On a mission trip to Canada (2011), worshiping Jesus. (Ignore my amazing sunburn).

What would constitute a perfect day for you?
I typically use this for perfect birthday, but it'd be totally fine if it was just a regular day.
Sleep in until 9, then one to two of my closest friends would come over and pick me up. We'd start our morning with pastries and hot chocolate/chocolate frappuccinos from Starbucks. We would then go shopping until lunch, when we would eat at Chick-Fil-A. After lunch, we would go bowling until we were hungry again, and then we would eat dinner at my favorite restaurant. We would catch a movie and then go out for ice cream afterward.
Oh, and my friends would be paying for everything...and my hair would look perfect all day long.

If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one quality or ability, what would it be?
Teleportation through time! Like, I could teleport to different places, but also time travel! 
  Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire. After saving your loved ones and pets, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item. What would it be? Why? 
This is kinda cheesy, but I have a box in my room containing every letter, every card, every drawing I have ever received. I would take that box, because it is probably the only valuable thing I own that cannot be replaced.

Are you currently watching a season of something on Netflix? What is it? If not - what is your top favorite TV show?
Actually, no (surprise!). I try not to watch Netflix too much while current shows I watch are in season. My top favorite TV show? Such a hard question. It's probably between Veronica Mars, Friends, and Survivor. They are all so different, I really can't choose.
