Liebster Award...say what?

Exciting news over here! 

The lovely Katherine from The Katherine Nicole was so kind to nominate View From the Cornfields for the Liebster Award!  It's so nice to know that there are other bloggers out there who are just as new at this as I am and I love that it's a way for us newbie's to connect and expose other blogs who are just starting out.  I'm told that in order to be nominated for this award, your blog must have less than 200 followers.

Here are the rules when awarded the Liebster Award:
+give 11 random facts about yourself
+answer 11 questions from the person that nominated you
+nominate 11 blogs (with under 200 followers) and make 11 questions for them to answer
My 11 facts:
+ I have a degree in elementary education and can't wait to have my own classroom one day.  Hoping that day will come this August...
+If I didn't have a care in the world, I would move to London.
+I love teaching, but my absolute dream job would be to become a veterinarian.  
+I have a tattoo on my wrist of the year Ryan and I got married in roman numerals.  I absolutely love it.
+After buying a puppy from a puppy mil (unbeknownst to us), and putting him to rest 2 months later because he was so sick, I went to the ends of the Earth to shut down the puppy mil he came from.  I succeeded.
+Ryan and I can't wait to start a family one day, God willing.
+I love musicals! 
+I love reading and I try to read as much as possible. 
+I have a curved spine (thanks Dad) and if I were to have back surgery to correct the curvature (one day I will), I was told I would gain 4 inches in height.  I'm told no one notices my back like I do, but I disagree.  It's my biggest insecurity, by far.
+I had the same dog (a beagle, Murray) growing  up from when I was 3 years old until almost 18.  I don't remember the week he died because I've blocked it out, it was that traumatic. 
+My favorite kinds of movies are comedy's and thrillers.
Questions given to me by Katherine:
+ If you could spend a year anywhere in the world--where would you go and what would you do there?
I kind of answered this above, but I would go back to London.  I absolutely loved the lifestyle in London.  Waking up and walking to the tube (train station), walking to restaurants, etc.  It was a big city but didn't seem big once you got off your stop.

+ Where is your favorite place to shop?
Target and Ulta are a couple of my favorites.  Target has literally anything, and Ulta is my weakness.  I get in trouble at Ulta.

+ How long have you been blogging?
I started a different blog about a year ago, but deleted it because it became something I wasn't enjoying.  I started this blog is October of 2013 with the intent of enjoying it for myself again.  So far, I love it!

+ How did you pick your blog name?
Picking a blog name can be intimidating so I didn't want to think too much into it.  Since Nebraska has a lot...a lot of cornfields, I just thought it would be fun to say this is my view from the cornfields.  It stuck!

+ What are 3 things you can't live without?
My husband, my dogs and my niece >>we'll say family on that one and consider that one item.  So, my family, coke, and my USB drive. Ha!  I am trying to get a teaching job after all!

+ Would you rather fly or take a road trip to your vacation destination?
Fly, please!  Road trips are fun, and I enjoy them as much as the next person, but in order to not waste time I would rather fly.
+ What's your favorite comfort food?
Oh, Lord, this is easy.  Macaroni and Cheese.  I literally could survive on Mac and Cheese.  Any variation.
+Current television show obsession?
Breaking Bad, Pretty Little Liars and Revenge.
+What are 3 things on your bucket list?
Open up an animal rescue shelter for pets born into puppy mills, travel to Washington DC to visit museums and monuments from our nation's history, visit Bora Bora with my husband.
+Dog or cat person? Post a picture if you have one :)
Given that I've already talked about dogs a lot already, definitely a dog person!

+ Best way to spend a Saturday?
My husband doesn't have to work, go to lunch together, go do some shopping together and see a movie at Cinedine later that night. Swoon.
My questions for the new nominees:
+How did you come up with the name of your blog?
