Winning!

Woot woot!

I've been nominated for a Liebster Award! 


The funny, awesome, great, beautiful Meighan over at Heavens to Meighan (you should probably visit her if you haven't already- and check out her opinion of Kim & Kanye's love child.  Epically funny. I'm not 100% sure that epically's a word, but I'm going to use it here anyway. Webster's be damned.  Though I heard ain't is now a word, so maybe epically can join the ranks.  K this is officially too long to be in parentheses.  I'm a rebel, what can I say.)    Nonetheless, I love Meighan's blog and am honored that she reads mine!!


Here's how this shiz works...

11 Things to Know about Ashley

1) My all-time favorite movie ever is Under the Tuscan Sun. Like ever.  Besides the whole divorce/cheating scandal I'd love to have her life. 

.
2) I'm an accomplished tractor driver (what this really means is hubby taught me to drive one and for a neighboring town's summer celebration I took part in a four-hour "tractor ride" through the country.
.
3) I spent my 2nd semester junior year of college studying in the south of France.  I traveled all throughout Europe and I'll take any excuse to go back!
.
4) My senior year of college I took more than a full load my second semester because I wanted to take Arabic, French and finish my third major.  Somehow I did this while getting drunk 6 nights a week.  I don't understand.
.
5) I'll admit it, I met my husband on, as he calls it, The EHarmony.
.
6) I'll also admit that I lied to people for the first couple months and told them that we met bowling.  I was a bit embarrased at first.
.
7) I don't like bacon, mustard, green olives, mushrooms or pickles.
.
8) Two years ago I watched the entire Buffy the Vampire Slayer series.  I had never watched it before.
.
9) I'd love to have an eye for fashion, but sadly I don't.  Jeans & sweatshirt girl, all the way.
10) I've tried to watch Star Wars, and to be perfectly honest, it confuses me.
.
11) The very first thing I do when I get home from work is change out of my black pants & put on sweatpants.  I leave my work shirt on though, and my sister is always annoyed by my outfits this results in!

11 Questions from Meighan

What is the first thing you notice about people?
If they look at me when they're talking to me or not.  It annoys me so much to be talking to someone when they're looking all around- or even more annoying- looking at their phone.
.
Who is your celebrity crush?
  Channing Tatum.  I think a lot of it still has to do with Step Up, but I just think he's yummy.
.
What is your favorite piece of clothing?
My college sweatpants.  I could wear those things everyday and be perfectly happy.
What is the one piece of makeup you could not live without?
Mascara.  It's the only piece I use!
.
What is the farthest you've traveled from home?
Australia/New Zealand when I was in high school.  So much fun and I'd love to go back!
.
What is the last book you read?
The Alice I Have Been.  It follows the life of the real-life girl who inspired Alice in Wonderland.  Very good!
.
What is the worst gift you've ever been given?
Honestly, I'm not sure.  I can't remember ever getting anything and really disliking it.
  .
What was the last thing you cooked?
Well I've been on this juice fast for the last 3 days, so I'm not too sure.  I think it was pasta something on Tuesday for lunch.
.
If you could sit down to dinner with five people, dead or alive, who would they be?
Miranda Lambert, Sophia Bush, Abraham Lincoln, Nelson Mandela.  And Jesus, but I'd rather have dinner with just us.
.
Were you named after anyone? 
My first name was just a name that my entire family agreed on.  My great-grandmother always wanted a girl who was named Robin, and whenever she wrote/spoke to my parents when they were pregnant she asked about her "little Robin".  So that's where my middle name came from!
.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and what would you do first? 
Apparition (or, for non-Harry Potter junkies, teleportation).  I'd love to be able to go wherever I wanted with no cost involved!  I'd probably bring hubby to Paris for a quick weekend away :)
.
11 Questions for My Peeps
1) If you could go back and relive one year of your life, which would you choose? Why?
2) Who's your favorite fiction character?
3) You've just been given a two week, all expenses paid trip to anyplace on Earth.  Where would you like to go?
4) What's your recommendation for a movie that everyone must see?
5) What's the best concert you've ever been to?
6) If you could invite one celebrity- and they say yes- to hang out for a weekend, who would you choose?
7) When you were little, what did you want to be when you grow up?  
8) Now that you're older, what do you want to be when you grow up?
9) If you could steal & wear the closet of any celebrity, who would you choose?
10) Are you a spender or a saver?
11) What's your favorite blog to read?  Or three?
