I was CHOSEN Liebster Blog Award

This is an excellent tool to meet other bloggers. I prefer this method over the "If You Really Knew Me" posts circulating the blog world. Bloggers nominate each other because they want to get to know each other. To me it's akin to a compliment from one blogger to the other.   
 Without further discussion, here's my post about me, (which sounds weird to me.)
A HUGE THANK YOU TO Esther at http://Www.Esthernorinedesigns.Blogspot.Com/ FOR NOMINATING ME!

The Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers by bloggers. It is a way to acknowledge each other and say “you’re doing a great job”. It is for blogs with 200 or less followers, so it’s also a great way to spread the word about smaller blogs and get them more readers and followers!
When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person(s) who nominated you. You pass the Award onto 11 other blogs (make sure you tell them you nominated them!) and ask them 11 questions. You’re not allowed to nominate the blog(s) who nominated you!
1: Most people think my name is Maya BUT it's actually Janae (Maya is my daughters name). My blog name evolved based on my daughters name and my love for things. When I saw the movie "Object of My Affection" with Jen Anniston I KNEW that would one day be my shop name...and when I named my daughter it became even more special - because I was able to call my shop and blog "Object of Maya*ffection"

2: I am a rule follower even though I think I am a bad a$$ rule breaker...

3: I have extreme guilt (over silly things sometimes)

4: I am a bit of a purse snob - COACH is my go to

5: I LOVE vintage

6: a weird fact about me - I don't enjoy shopping at the mall - I'd prefer the thrift store over the mall. The reason - my ensemble will be on trend BUT not exactly out of the brochure or straight off the mannequin

7: My guilty pleasure is watching ANY of the Real Housewives BUT I love Atlanta - those girls are cray cray!

8: I ALWAYS wear pearls

9: My FAVE movie is "Pretty Woman"

10: I've always wanted to ride on the back of a motorcycle - a fab Harley like this one....

(this is a perfect strangers bike - I saw it next to me one day and had to take a pic)

4: What is your guilty pleasure? "Reality" tv

5: Do you choose to pick up the remote or pick up a book first? Remote - fast easy disconnect...if I had more time I would totally read! 

6: What is your favorite holiday? was always so magical as a child...I never realized how much work my mom put into decorating and wrapping and getting everything just so....until I became a "grown up"

7: Do you like Starbucks? What do you get there? L O V E. My standard go to is a venti iced coffee w/EXTRA 2% milk and toffee nut syrup....seasonally - nonfat pumpkin spice latte WITH whip (which my co-worker apparently thought was weird) Christmas - something minty
