Liebster & #xvsdailylife2014 Week 16

Holly over at Faith, Hope, and Baseball was nice enough to nominate me for a Liebster Award!
So sweet!
And she is an Ohio girl! Check her out today!

The Liebster Award Rules

1.) You must link back to the person who nominated you
2.) You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you.
3.) You must pick 10 bloggers to be nominated for the award (with a small following)
4.) You must create 10 questions for your nominees
5.) You must go to their blogs and notify the nominees
Here are my 10 questions from Holly...

1. Where are you from? Have you always lived there?
Ohio girl born and raised!
I am originally from a small town called Sheffield Lake (about 25 minutes west of Cleveland) located right on beautiful Lake Erie.
I lived there for 25 years before making the move to Lexington/Mansfield, Ohio (my husband's hometown).
I have lived here for the last 10 years and it is still growing on me ;)

2. What is the meaning behind your blog name (if there is one)?
I actually asked a couple of high school friends for some ideas.
I wanted something that said "me", but at the same time gave me the freedom to write about anything.
The "X" in X-tremely comes from my little guy of course and the "V" is for Vanessa :)

3. What kind of job do you have, and do you enjoy it?
My husband and I own our own franchise office of Ameriprise Financial. I am the Office Manager/receptionist/assistant.

4. If you go to a coffee shop, what do you order?
Nine times out of ten I will order a non-fat Mocha Latte with extra chocolate drizzle on top.
If it is a really hot day I will get a Vanilla Creme Frappuccino.
And during the Fall I ALWAYS order a non-fat Pumpkin Spice Latte :)
Can you tell I am a Starbucks girl? :)

5. Dark, milk, or white chocolate?
Not a huge chocolate fan...shocker!
But given the choice I will take white :)

6. Ice cream or cake?
With lots of butter cream frosting please!

7. What's your favorite childhood memory?
I have a ton of good childhood memories so it is hard to narrow it down.
I am going to go with when my little brother was born.
I was almost 4 years old and my dad brought up to see Richie for the first time. 
I remember thinking how neat it was to see him through the little window.
I also received a new doll and accessories that same day :)
Remember I was 3!

8. What's your favorite summer activity?
Cookouts :)
I love making food on the grill, eating some watermelon,
enjoying a cold adult beverage, and making memories with family and friends.
I know it sounds cheesy, but it is the truth!

9. What's your preferred form of social media?
I like different forms for different reasons.
Facebook has been great to reconnect with old friends from childhood, Instagram is wonderful to see photos of people you may or may not know, and Blogging is amazing for all the new people I have come to know along the way :)

10. Have you ever met another blogger in person? If so, how and where?
I actually have met a few bloggers in person!
Some of the lovely Cleveland bloggers and I met for brunch not too long ago at the Flying Fig in Cleveland.
It was so great to meet other moms in the blogging world who live relatively close by.
Some have been blogging for years, others just months.
Some were big time, and some were small like me :)
I hope to meet some more this summer too!

Here are my nominees...
Sarah @ Tucker Up
Kayla @ My Kind of Yellow
Jennifer @  Bubbly & Buttercream
Lisa @ Showered by Design
Stephanie @ Not Entirely Perfect
Erin @ Love, Fun & Football

And yes, a couple of those bloggers are a bit bigger than what the rules suggest.
What are you going to do me?

My 10 questions for you all...
1. What is your favorite professional sport and team?
2. What made you decide to start blogging?
3. What is your all time favorite TV show?
4. What is your favorite adult beverage?
5. Fruits or vegetables? Favorite?
6. What is your favorite number & why?
7. What activities did you participate in in high school? College?
8. What state were you born in? What state do you currently live in?
9. What is your favorite type of music? What is your favorite song?
10. What is your favorite vacation destination you have been to?

Kind of makes me want to answer those questions too!
