The Liebster Award: Take 2

Recently, Bernadette at Aimless Moments nominated me for the Liebster Award. *Waves.* Thanks for the nomination, sassy lady! If you have not had a chance to see her blog, you better hop on over there and check it out!

What is the Liebster Award?

The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to other bloggers who have less than 200 followers. This is a great way to discover some great new blogs you have yet to hear about.

What are the rules?

1. Link back to the blog that nominated.

2. Nominate 5-11 blogs with fewer than 200 followers.

3. Answer the questions posted by the nominator. 

4. Share 11 random facts about yourself. 

5. Create 11 questions for my nominees.

6. Contact my nominees and let them know they have been nominated.

Questions to answer:

1. Something new you have learned recently? How to make a 7 minute egg. (Don't laugh.)

2. Favorite candy? Um, I can only pick one? Something with chocolate. Oh! Or peanut butter! Or chocolate AND peanut butter. See why this is hard?!

3. Do you have any children, grandchildren, bonus children, any? Two beautiful, sweet, crazy boys - J, age 4, and Baby L, age 2.

4. If you could live in any era/decade which one would you choose? Right now. Even though I did have some seriously to-be-envied high hair in the nineties and lots of NKOTB memorabilia to rival the most avid fan.

5. Favorite new product? Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Leave In Conditioner. Great for my curly and no-time-to-style hair

6. How you came up with your blog name? Um, it's my own name. (I know. Settle all the applause for my creativity.)

7. Do you have any pets? Do children and husbands count?

8. Where were you born? Kentucky. Giddy up!

9. Coffee or Tea? Coffee everyday and thrice on Mondays.

10. Do you have any hobbies? Read, read and read. Oh, and I also love to write. Just started writing fiction. Love, love, love it!

11 Random Facts About Me:

1. My favorite color is red.
2. I cannot go to sleep in an unmade bed.

4. My dad ran over my foot with his car when I was sixteen.
5. I once had a beagle for a pet.
6. My first car was a Chevy Nova.
7. I think chipped toenail polish looks trashy (even though that's what I am rocking right now).

9. I am a horrible eater but I am trying to eat better for my kids.
10. My dad was friends with Jim Varney (i.e. Earnest P. Worrell) so I know what it's like to know someone famous.
