The Liebster Award

Tiffany at Stuck on a Cloud nominated me for a Liebster Award.   The Liebster Award is an accolade passed around by bloggers with less than 500 followers.  It’s a way to give bloggers an exposure boost, and a little love. Liebster is a German term of endearment that translates as that means sweetheart, beloved, or darling. I was honored to be chosen by Tiffany, and delighted at the opportunity to pass it on.

To accept the award, a blogger must:

  • Make a post about the award, thanking the blogger that nominated you.
  • State 11 interesting facts about yourself
  • Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger that nominated you
  • Nominate 11 new bloggers with 500 or less followers
  • Write 11 new questions for your nominees

Tiffany asked me:

What is your favorite Movie/TV show/Band/Book?  – Blackhawk Down/Firefly/Led Zeppelin/The Gold Coast
If you could choose a year to have been born, what year and why? – 2500 I want to explore space.
The thing that makes you the happiest. – Snuggling at bedtime or when my little one wakes up.
The thing you wish other people would get about you.  – Not to mistake quiet/reserved for snobby/stuck up.
Your idea of a perfect day. – A perfect day starts with a quiet, uninterrupted coffee, meets the snuggle and giggle quota, has no drama, ends with a quiet, uninterrupted glass of wine or a mojito.
East Coast or West Coast? – I’d take either one, I’m landlocked in the desert right now.
The most valuable lesson you learned in life. – That will be a blog post of it’s own, but it boils down to “my way is not the only way”.
Over the past week, you made someone smile when…I hosted a mom’s night in on my new patio, we had a lot of laughs.
Who would you like to be stuck in an elevator with? – Nobody, I’d make a fool of myself clawing at the walls.
What do you like to do in your free time? – Play tennis.
Who inspires you? – So many people, but right now I’m inspired daily by my daughter to be the best mom I can be.

Are you a morning or night person?
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

  1. You're welcome!

    I was a fan of Danger Bay. Your comment about watching a taping reminds me that I should do a post about my brief foray into the biz. For a while you couldn't cross the street in Vancouver without running into a show being filmed.

  2. You're welcome!

    I'm a terrible judge of character, so I can't blame anyone else for misjudging me. I've decided that I need a committee to choose the next man I get involved with since I can't be trusted to choose wisely.

  3. Thank you so much for the nomination. I am truly honored and super excited that 1) I've been nominated for the Liebster and 2) someone besides my dog reads my blog. lol
    I loved reading the Q/A above. Vancouver Island is one of my favorite places, and I loved your story about the orcas. I'm assuming you watched that show Danger Bay back in the 80's? I once got to see a taping while on a family vacay to Vancouver. Highlight of 6th grade! Well, thanks again! cheers!

  4. Thank you SO much for the nomination! You're too sweet 🙂

    I laughed when you mentioned people mistaking you for being snobby or stuck up. That happens to me ALL the time so I feel your pain, hahah.

  5. I love reading these. I find out even cooler things about my friends. Love me some Firefly as well. I was very disappointed with the hoax last week about remaking it for Netflix, not so nice.
