Liebster Award

I was nominated for a Liebster Award from Candice over at What the heck is a Liebster award, I wondered?  “The Liebster Award is awarded by fellow bloggers to blogs with less than 200 followers, as a means to encourage and praise each other.” More of a “tag you’re it” than an award, but fun none the less! Then I while I was writing this post with all of its random facts and questions, I was nominated again by LuAnne at before I was done!  Double the fun!

The Rules of the The Liebster Award are as follows:

  • Link back to the nominating blog.
  • Answer the questions given by the nominator.
  • Give 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 5-11 other blogs with fewer than 200 followers.
  • Ask the nominees 11 new questions.
  • Contact the nominees to congratulate them and let them know they were nominated!

My Questions from Candice:
1. What is your favorite drink?
Coffee, of course…

2. What is your favorite makeup?
Loose powder, not the heavy mineral stuff, just enough coverage without being too heavy.

3. What do you do for fun?
Playing with my kids, gardening, swimming, trying new things

4. If you had to move where would you want to go?
Florida!  I am so done with snow.

5. What is your shoe size?
Size 6 – tiny feet!

6. What color toe nail polish are you wearing?
Bright pink!  Needed something fun.

7. Favorite Season?
Summer.  Again, done with snow. But also spring, because it means winter is over and summer is coming!

8. Do you have a pet? If so what is it?
We have three cats.  We are down from 5.  It is still too many! I used to have a turtle.

9. Ice cream or candy?
Yes, please!  Super sweet tooth over here!

10. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hmmm…  In five years… I will be married for 12 years.  I will be the mom of a 6 year old and a 9 year old.  I will have been working at the same place for 16 years.  Hopefully I am a better mom and a better wife.  It would be nice to be making a little more money…

LuAnne’s questions:

1. Chocolate or vanilla? Or strawberry? Or some other flavor? What’s your favorite ice cream?
Peppermint stick!  Turns out my son is a huge fan too so I have to share – boo!

2. What is your favorite movie?
This is a tough one.  We rarely watch movies.  Shrek is a favorite.  The Harry Potter movies. I was a big fan of Terms of Endearment and Chicago…

3. What is your favorite meal?

4. If you could ask any one person in history one question, who would you ask and what would you ask?
The dinosaurs… What happened guys?

5. What TV show was your favorite when you were 15?
Still General Hospital.

6. Which Disney princess are you? (Or, if you’re not the princess-type, which Disney character are you?)
I am definitely not a Disney princess…  I would have to go with Nemo’s dad.  I am super overprotective too!

7. If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would you go?
The beach in Sarasota, FL.

8. What’s your favorite season of the year, and why?
Summer.  Again, done with snow. But also spring, because it means winter is over and summer is coming!

9. What’s your favorite song?
Making Memories of U by Keith Urban.  It came out just as my husband and I started dating and we danced to it our wedding.

10. Ever been camping? A good thing, or a bad thing?
Ugh… I remember my parents taking me as a kid and not being too fond of it.  Then when I was in high school I went on a trip – camping with a sunburn, major cramps and a totally soaked tent and sleeping bag.  NEVER AGAIN!

11. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
More of a late morning/mid-afternoon kind of girl!

 11 random facts about me

  1. I can’t whistle.
  2. I have two favorite colors – purple and yellow – you can’t make me choose!
  3. I hate mushrooms.
  4. I once owned a turtle.  His name was Tucker and he lived a reeeaaaally long time.
  5. I am a huge General Hospital fan.
  6. I used to be very crafty and sewed a lot.  Now I have kids.

  8. I am a planner.  I like to have a plan.  I want to follow the plan.
