Liebster Blog Award

So, I won a little award. Deidre Ann from Nowhere to Be & Forever to Get There so kindly gave one to lil' ol' me. Thanks Deidre!
This award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers (yup, that's me) and in my opinion is a way to get to know bloggers a little bit more. I like these "tell me about yourself" type posts. I learn something new each time, both about myself and about others. It's fun!
The rules are:
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you.
3. Create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.
4. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
5. Go to their page and tell them.
6. No tag backs!
I'm going to try and write things that are random as hell. I'll regret this around fact 5 when I can't think of anymore...

Without further ado...

#1- When I was born my mom almost named me Liesl, as in "My name is Liesl, I'm 16 years old and I don't need a governess!" I love that movie.
#2- People like to nickname me. Growing up I was called "Sunshine" because I was smiling all the time. In High School, I was "MoJo Potatoes" and in college, I was "JoMo" which combined the letters from my first and last name.

#3- More often than not, I have a Christmas song stuck in my head. Jingle Bells is my personal fav.

#4- My baby will be Sergio's grandmother's 38th great grandchild.

#5- When I was in first grade, I hit my head on the edge of a glass table. Stitches RULE!

#6- I can't swim. I am deathly afraid to try and I feel like an idiot every time someone questions me about it.
#7- When I took my pregnancy test at the doctor's office, the nurse thought I was a pregnant teenager and treated me like shit. She even asked me where my mother was. When she finally pulled up my file and saw that I was 29, she instantly wanted to be nice and talk up a storm. Doesn't work that way, freak.

#8- Even though I do not wear a lot of makeup, I am OBSESSED with Makeup tutorials on YouTube.

#9- Even though I am not into Astrology, I am a quintessential Cancer. Crabby, stubborn, hides in my shell, holds a grudge.....geez, I need to work on myself.

#10- I never thought I'd say this, but I miss being able to run. I was a baby runner before I got knocked up and I can't wait to get my body back so I can start up again.
#11- I have a crazy person habit of giving feelings to inanimate objects. If I know I haven't used...say... a certain bowl for a long time, I'll think that it's sad so I'll use it. Yes, crazy person habit.

Whew...that was hard!
