Award Girl

Well check me out gettin' all fancy! A very sweet fellow blogger Natalie nominated me for a Liebster Award. My first award! I've seen people with different award buttons on their blogs, but I didn't really know much about it. What happens is; you receive it and then pass on to other bloggers that you love and want to show some love to. The only requirement is that the recipient must have less than 300 followers, so the little guys get to shine!

Natalie blogs over at Natalie Patalie and I love her easy DIY's and the fact that she likes musicals. Yes! Head on over there and check her out! 

Ok...here are the rules, so you'll know which end is up.

Nominee posts award on their blog. 
- Nominee links back to the nominator’s blog and of course thanks them.
- Nominee answers 11 questions nominator ask of them.

- Nominee then nominates 11 new bloggers they deem worthy with about 300 followers   or less. Make sure to let them know.

Nominee poses 11 questions for their nominees to answer.

Alright! Let's get started. Here are the questions Natalie asked me! 
1. How would you describe your blog in 3 words?
fun, no-fuss, nerdy
2. What's the first thing you'd do if you won 1 million dollars?
Buy my dream home which would be an old, white, farmhouse including all farm animals and gardens!
3. What's the best advice someone gave you?
Oh goodness! This is a tough one. Probably Jerimiah 29:11 that God has plans to prosper you...to give you hope and a future. When I started recovery for my alcoholism my group leader shared that with me. Great advice for me at the time because I had no idea how to live sober. It gave me hope to know the Big Guy Upstairs had my back.
4. Describe what would happen on a perfect day for you (being realistic here!)
Thrift shopping! Start the day off in a coffee shop with a pastry for breakfast then onto shopping for bargains. Stop for a delicious lunch al fresco style and then onto round two! I would probably do this with my mom because she is such a good thrift shopping partner and we always have such a good time together.

5. What's something you're really passionate about, other than blogging?

Being a great mom and wife. I quit my job so that my job could be wife and mom full time. I want to soak up all the memories of my son being this age, taking each moment to appreciate and count my blessings.

6. If you had a theme song for your life, what would it be?

Toughie! Only one? I was thinking about this one and was trying to think about my life as a whole. I guess it would be Walking On Broken Glass by Annie Lennox. I feel like I have broken my fair share of "glass" in my life and I have had some broken at no fault of my own. But that doesn't mean I can give up. I feel like each day I am discovering a new obstacle, overcoming another obstacle or just recognizing something that has always been obstacle. Taking it one moment at a time!

7. Who in your life has personally influenced you the most?

My mom. She has always given me good advice, she doesn't judge me, she's always choosing the high road and she relies on God, His Word and how to live life as a good solid person.

8. Where would your super secret home base be located? (Top of a mountain? Bottom of the ocean? Go Crazy!) 

How about... in a nook or a cranny in the Grand Canyon. 

10. What stereotypically nasty food do you secretly (or not so secretly) love?

Deep fried fish like from Long John Silvers smothered in malt vinegar!!! Also those danishes from vending machines! I haven't had one in years but if someone told me the world was on fire I might go get one before I died. 

11. What's your biggest talent?
Coordination. It shows in how I run my household, how I keep up our calendar of events, appointments, etc. When I worked I had a job where every other day I had a major deadline. I had to keep a detailed to do list. I think it also shows in my love for fashion too. Putting an outfit together gives me great satisfaction. Before I had this blog or even knew about blogs I would lay out an outfit on the floor and take a photo. Then I would keep it in a little photo album. It would help me know what could go with what in my closet. 

Well! There you have it! Those are my answers to Natalie's questions. Fun fun fun. Now, here are my 11 questions:

1. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you like to go? (money is no object)
2. Who would you take with you with you on that trip from question number 1?
3. What is your favorite meal to prepare?
4. Who is your favorite historical figure?
5. What would you like to dress up as for Halloween?
6. Would you go on the game Survivor and why?
7. Do you like ice cream or frozen yogurt?
8. What is your favorite holiday?
9. Did you wish you could have or did you ever have an unusual pet?
10. What is your favorite kind of dessert?
11. Who has influenced you the most in your life?

And last but not least, here's who I'm passing this on to. Have fun! You don't have to do it if you don't want to but I think you'll like it :)
