The Liebster Award Is In The House


So I have noticed lately this symbol on many blog posts recently and was not sure what was going on.  Until now, since I received a message from Giselle over at  My Healthy Happy Home and from Lindsay over at Sweets N Sweat.  Looks like those two gals have nominated me for this super cool and most humbling award.  It’s an award given to up and coming bloggers who inspire you.  The word Liebster is a German word meaning Beloved, Dearest, or Favorite.  Thank you to both Giselle and Lindsday!

I am actually (almost) speechless.   The last time I was “awarded” anything was at the dentist office when they gave me a stainless steel water bottle with my free toothbrush and floss package. I am so honored, because this means that someone is actually reading my site and liking it….:)



Okay to here is how this works….

  • Write 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 interview questions you’ve been given by the person who nominated you.
  • Create 11 new questions.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers and mention them in your post.
  • Go and tell the person who nominated you, along with the people you’ve nominated about your post.

Just randoms about myself….

  • Loud noise bothers me, I need to have it very quiet in order to concentrate…or I get distracted.
  • I am terrified of being in a car, any car…passenger or driver, does not matter…I stay in the slow lane as often as I can for as long as I can.
  • I don’t like people wearing shoes in the house and our guests have gotten used to that rule and still come over.
  • I am horrible, just awful at baking and that’s okay, I don’t need baked goods in the house.
  • My fav word is Serendipity.
  • I am a morning person, you know the one who can jump out of bed, start the coffee and pull open all the curtains even if it is stil dark out.
  • Having been 5 1/2 months preggers with “identical twins” and losing them…(years ago) I wake every day feeling blessed and with the most positive attitude that I can, because life goes on.
  • I have trust in people to a fault and believe in second chances…after that …forget it.
  • I have complete trust and faith in GOD every single day of my life, and have a wonderful relationship with him.
  • I beleive in “paying it forward”, and helping even strangers (when in a situation that I can).
  • I love singing to Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks songs.

Questions from Giselle answered by me…

  1. If you were on a deserted island, what three items would you want with you?  A family photo, a place to find safe drinking water, someone else to keep me company.
  2. What’s your favorite dessert?  Original cheesecake, if I ate dessert.  This is a very random treat.
  3. What was your first car?  A Volks Wagon Bug…(orange) I drove it in High School
  4. What one animal are you most fearful of?  The raccoon, they are scary mean creatures and not afraid…we get them here on the porch and they look like they ate one of the cats they are so huge!
  5. What’s your favorite holiday movie? This question is tough, only because Christmas is my most fav time of year and I am always curled up watching season movies…It’s A Wonderful Life, Love Actually, The Family Stone, Serendipity..I know I cheated (only one right)?
  6. Would you rather go to a movie theatre or watch a movie at home?  Well since we now have the nice HD tv’s here at the house and the large viewing screens and the Blue Ray…I love sitting front row and center on the couch with my parm cheese popcorn and my cozy blanket.
  7. Are you a coffee drinker or tea drinker?  I was a 3 plus cup a day coffee gal, however my new drink since weening off coffee is my Matcha Green Tea Latte..OR just a cup of green tea.
  8. Do you remember how old you were when you stopped believing in Santa?  What? There is NO Santa??
  9. If you could do one workout everyday, what would it be and why?  Boot Camp!  Since starting this last month, I am forever hooked.
  10. Have you ever broken a bone or had stitches?  Nope
  11. How many siblings do you have?  I actually have two younger sisters and both live in my same town within blocks of me…However, they do not speak to me or my family and that is their cross to bare.

  3. Do you work out in the morning?  Yes, in fact the 5:30 a.m. time for class has become a routine that I love!
  4. What’s your favorite restaurant?  I don’t have a fav restaurant, only because my hubby is an ex chef and we cook ALOT at home, we can pretty much whip up whatever we can get eating out and at a much better price
  5. What’s your favorite thing to buy yourself?  Workout clothes without a second thought!
  6. Mani or pedi?  Pedi for sure…I have no fingernails and too hard to keep up.
  7. Pony or braid?  Ponytail..always
  8. What was your favorite show as a kid?  The Brady Bunch
  9. Who is your favorite actor?  Can’t even answer this…way too many…but if I go “old school”, it would be Cary Grant.
