Yay! A Liebster Award!

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

Today I logged into Facebook to see this wonderful surprise!  Lydia from Lydia's Flexitarian Kitchen nominated me for a Liebster Award! Yay!  So excited! Thank you so much for nominating me, Lydia!

If you don't already know what it is, The Liebster Award is awarded by fellow bloggers to blogs with less than 200 followers, as a means to encourage and praise each other.

The Rules of the The Liebster Award are as follows:
  1. Link back to the nominating blog.
  2. Answer the questions given by the nominator. 
  3. Give 11 random facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 5-11 other blogs with fewer than 200 followers.
  5. Ask the nominees 11 new questions. 
  6. Contact the nominees to congratulate them and let them know they were nominated!
Questions for me from Lydia:
  1. What did you have for lunch today?  For lunch, I had a Weinerschnitzel corn dog and fries (healthy, huh? :)) 
  2. Do you watch/read Game of Thrones? Who is your favorite character?  No, I haven't watched it yet, but I have friends who love it!  So, I probably should...
  3. Favorite adult beverage? Margaritas! Yum!
  4. What special skills do you have that would enable you to survive the zombie apocalypse?  Well, I am a pretty good shot, or I could always stab one in the eye with my knitting needles (how's that for zombie kill of the day).
  5. What's your favorite flower? I love flowers! I would have to say a toss up between peonies and ranunculus.
  6. Would you/ have you tried online dating?  I haven't, but my mom is having terrible luck with it!  So, I wouldn't based on her track record!
  7. Explain to the old folks what "crunchy" means in today's vernacular: Crunchy?  Is that supposed to mean something other than...crunchy?  Well, Urban Dictionary says it's a modern day hippie, so I would just go with that!
  8. How many blog parties do you participate in?  Oh gosh, a ton!  Over 50, but then I lost count.
  9. Android of iPhone?  iPhone
  10. What's the name of the last movie to make you cry? The Croods! Ha!
  11. How many items are in your purse right now?  35 and most of it is trash! I need to clean this thing out!
11 Random Facts About Me:

  1. I love to dance and have danced since I was two.
  2. I am obsessed with barre classes and take them a few times a week.
  3. I speak a bit of German.  Ich liebe meine Liebster Award! (I love my Liebster Award!)
  4. I love animals and have a Chocolate Lab named Reese.  Oh, and I also have 10 tadpoles in my backyard, thanks to my niece, Autumn :).
  5. Years ago, I was on Date My Mom and won because my mom is awesome!
  6. I have a crafty little company, J & A's Handmade Lovelies, that I run with my best friend.
  7. If I wasn't so happy being creative and crafting it up all the time, I'd want to practice medicine. 
  8. I don't have my spleen or appendix. 
  9. I am addicted to Chapstick and look for clothes with pockets so I can carry it at all times!
