If you have been reading for some time then you know I kind of disappeared this summer (oops!). During August I was tagged by a lovely reader, Tara Bytes, for the Liebster Award. I always love getting these and must admit that I am HORRIBLE at actually doing them, but I thought it may be a good way for you guys to get to know me a little bit better.


1. List 11 random facts about yourself
2. Answer the 11 questions from the person nominating you
3. Nominate 11 more blogs with 11 more questions


1. I love grapes. I detest raisins.
2. My husband started a "shit my wife says" twitter account for all the crazy stuff that comes out my mouth. It's pretty bad.
3. I hate the majority of modern day video games. Give me a Super Nintendo then watch me go to town.
4. 95% of everything I own: food, clothes, home decor, and home supplies are all from Target. It's frightening.
5. Hangry Hannah is not to be messed with. Neither is Sleep Hannah.
6. I'm a halfway decent singer but I won't sing in front of anyone but James. I'm shy.
7. I see more movies in theaters each year than I saw in theaters during the first 20 years of my life.
8. I forget the ending (at minimum) but usually the whole thing by the time they come out on video. On more than 1 occasion I have purchased movies "I really wanted to see" only to realize 5 minutes in that I HAVE seen it. #smh
9. I am an action flick chick through and through.Quickly followed by sci-fi and animated kids movies.
10. I still do pirouettes and arabesques when I dance with my headphones on. My last performance was 10 years ago...
11. I'm clumsy in general but hide all the breakables when I'm sick. I'll knock it over and shatter it.
