Thank You Thank You Liebster Award

I am never one to miss a chance for some blogging kudos, after all don’t we ALL need a little pat on the back here and there?  Isn’t it nice to be noticed for our passions, efforts and at the same time make some new connections?  I am super humbled to be {once again} nominated for the Liebster Award via one of my top fave bloggers Miss Cheryl.   What is the Liebster you may be asking?  Simply this …

The word Liebster is “beloved” in German.  The “award” is given to bloggers by their peers and along with it comes a handful of questions in which each recipient answers.  It is typically for new bloggers just starting out.  Basically it is a type of virtual blogging chain letter and you get to know one another a bit better.  You have the choice to accept and pay it forward OR decline and just move on.  I love the idea of sharing the and I will gladly participate, because well you can NEVER have enough blog love.

Liebster-AwardLet’s do this shall we?

How did you decide on the name of your blog

I knew I had to somehow incorporate the wine country into my blog name.  After all I live smack dab in the center of the most amazing area Sonoma, CA.  We are just 15 mins {okay 13 mins} from the Napa Valley.  I have had a passion for fitness and health my entire life and I am a mother of three.  So Fitness-mom-winecountry just fit and made sense.

Where does your blogging inspiration come from?

I have ideas and stories in my head ALL the time.  I just need to work on taking the time to get them out on the blog.  I tend to get distracted with the kids, activities and naps.  I get inspired from really just day to day stuff that happens {I swear I think I am a good fit for a reality show}.

What is it that you love most about blogging?

I have a place in the world to share my voice.  Whether some like it or not, I can be free to write.  I make amazing connections, I always love free stuff and the small amount of money is pretty cool.  It helps to keep me accountable when I am training for a race or inspired by another fitness blogger.

What is your favorite food?

A really really creamy local cheese {we have so many here} wine, dark chocolate and anything with garlic.

What is your favorite thing to drink? {alcoholic or not}

Champs, I love a good glass of bubbles   Green tea {hot or cold} and water but that is a no brainer, I drink TONS of it.

What is an item you can’t live without?

Eye cream, lip gloss and sunscreen.  I said three …

What are eleven random facts about yourself?

I am a control freak.  I sweep the floor more than twice a day.  I never leave the house with an unmade bed.  I am naive too many times.  I always believe the best in people.  I am insecure about myself.  I am a super cool mom.  I make a great wife.  I hate clothes shopping.  I am very competitive.  I don’t know how to apply makeup.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I don’t know.  I have visions of Europe somewhere.  France, Paris.  Or somewhere tropical {but I am terrified of the wind} so hurricanes are out.  It would be wherever my husband and kids are.   If we are happy and healthy it would not matter.

If you could meet anyone from history {alive or dead} who?

Katharine Hepburn {to sit and spend an afternoon with her would be amazing}

What is your favorite outdoor activity?

Anything, I would be outdoors.  From running to having a picnic atop a mountain that we just hiked.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I don’t really “plan” out, I would rather take it day by day and hope I am still alive and healthy in 5 years.  My kids would be graduated from high school and getting ready to start their own journey.  My husband and I making a decision as to where we would like to go.

  7. I am so very jealous of where you live! And you & I are very much alike with our housekeeping habits. I vacuum twice a day! And also have no idea how to correctly apply makeup 😉 Though I rarely ever wear it anymore since becoming a mom so it kinda works out quite well 🙂 xoxo
