Liebster Award: Some Fun Facts

A few weeks ago, Elizabeth over at Southern Color nominated me for the Liebster Award. How fun! Elizabeth and her twin sister Julia write a super cute blog about their crafting, cooking and adventures around Atlanta. Even though they went to UGA (humph), I still like following along ;) I loved this tutorial for a flower arrangement that lives in a pumpkin. I just pinned it to remember for next year :)

Anyways, this award ...

The Liebster Award is given to new or up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. It's a great way to find new and noteworthy blogs.
There are a few rules to follow:

1) Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
2) Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, and then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
3) Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4)  Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5) No tag backs

Ok, here goes! I am going to try my best with this one :) Thanks, Elizabeth, for the nom!

Random Facts About Katherine
1. I am a shoe addict (after all, these are only supposed to be random facts, not unknown facts, ha!)
2. I have discovered that I am mildly intolerant to gluten ...
3. ... But even though I haven't given up pasta (yet!), I switched years ago to corn and rice (Chex/Crispix) for cereal and will never go back.
4. I have three piercings in my left ear and two in my right. The second holes in both are uneven with each other. 
5. I think mayonnaise on a ham sandwich is the grossest sandwich combination ever. 
6. As an adult, I have grown to love onions when sauteed, but still hate them when they are raw. 
7. I hate cake.
8. I could drink Diet Coke with every meal.
9. I got into and considered attending Notre Dame instead of Georgia Tech.
10. I "do" my hair in some fashion even if I am staying at home alone all day.
11.  I wiggle my toes when I am thinking or reading <wiggling right now>

Tagger Questions

1.  How long have you been blogging? Three and a half years
2.  Do you do it full-time? No.
3.  What is your favorite kind of ice cream? Chocolate Peanut Butter. But the ice cream has to be chocolate with the peanut butter swirled in, like Baskins-Robbins. The reverse just isn't the same. Other Choc-PB fans know what I mean!
4.  What is the first blog you started reading/following? I started reading Marriage Confessions (written by my friend's sister) way back before they even had kids - now they have two toddlers!
5.  Do you have a pet? A fish, St. Thomas.
6.  Where was your last vacation to? I went to Charleston over the summer for a bachelorette trip. Ever since then, we have been saving for the honeymoon!!
7.  What is your favorite work out? Spin class.
8.  What is the last book you read? Oh, I am so lame, probably The Hunger Games like EIGHT MONTHS AGO.
9.  What is your favorite meal from growing up? For years and years and years, I requested bean and cheese burritos as my birthday meal. Why? They are awesome, that's why. Thanksfully, my taste buds have evolved as my age has increased!
10.  Are your ears pierced? Multiple times, actually - see above.
11.  How are you celebrating did you celebrate Thanksgiving? We spent Thanksgiving Day and the weekend at home with my family in Roswell, and also got to celebrate with my fiance's family with a few visits, too.
