WOW what a surprise and honor!

I just received some of the BEST blogging news since my "career" in blogging started. Mel over at Mel's Corner let me know that she has nominated me for a Liebster Award!!! I was litterally blown away when I saw her comment but also wondered "Why me?", but obviously she sees something in my blog and to me that is amazing! Thank you so much Mel!
Since I am completely new to this I am stealing the following from Mel's Post. (Sorry Mel) :)

Image thanks to Google
What it's all about?
The Liebster Award is an award given to up and coming bloggers who has less than 200 followers by other bloggers. (I am on 67 / sorry 68, thanks to my new follower! - getting there)

The Rules?
Post 11 things about yourself.
Answer the questions that the tagger set for you and create 11 new questions for the people you tag.
Choose people to nominate and link them in your post.

11 Facts about me:

1. I got chicken pox at the age of 18 and had to get my Identity Document photo taken with it. Now I'm stuck with a ID with a photo of me at 18 with chicken pox. Neat!
2. I am a 100% chocoholic, no jokes, I can eat this sweet bugger all day 24/7!
3. If I have to open my hand for you, I cannot put my pinky finger against the rest of my fingers. Weird I know.
4. I have never broken a single bone in my body.
5. But my front right tooth is a crown.
6. I am the most indecisive person in the world.
7. Cedric is my longest relationship and hopefully the last.
8. I like hitting pavements with my car, but not on purpose. They jump in front of me I swear!
9. When people talk to me I answer them back in my head forgetting to do it verbally. Then they think I ignore them. I don't I promise!
10. I am a very picky eater.
11. I am terrified of moths. haha when I see one I run.

My 11 Questions:

1. What made you start your blog?
Well, I actually got the idea from a friend of mine. She works on a cruise ship and said that people always wanted her to send them photo's of her times on board and that's when she decided to start the blog. Easy way for people to keep up with your life. And I thought it sounded like fun and started it! And now I'm hooked! Thanks Sandra!!!

2. Favourite Destination?
Hmmm tough one. I love Mauritius, the island life is just something completely different! And then I love the bush. I would go live there NOW!

In Mauritius
3. If you could do/be anything what would you do?
Be a helicopter pilot! No jokes. This has been a dream of mine ever since I was a young girl!

4. Favourite past time?
Spending time with Cedric in the bush. And family time. Those are priceless moments!

At Idube Game Lodge
5. What's your worst habbit?
Hahaha where do I begin? Apparently I frown while watching TV. I always hear "boo boo stop frowning" when we watch TV. Don't know where I got this habbit from. Maybe I should go check my eyes....

6. Cooking or baking, which do you prefer?
BAKINGGGGG!!! Hands down! I have a major sweet tooth.

7. A summer's day at the beach or a rainy day curled up on the couch?
Both, well depends in what mood I am in. But I love doing both.

8. Your most prized possession?
Cedric, my family and friends. My mother taught us not to get attached to actual possessions.

9. What is your proudest moment?
WOW, I can't think of a specific moment. I think every little thing I put my mind to and achieve is a proud moment to me.

10. Guilty Pleasure?
Tooo many! But definitely chocolates, Kardashians (I know horrible one), and being too obsessed with Cedric haha.

Chocolate covered strawberries
11. Ultimate pet peeve?
People that sit and sleep at a traffic light! I mean you know it's almost your time to go if the other light hits orange! Wake up people!

That's the 11 Questions left for me from Mel. Thanks Mel loved them!
