Woot, Woot....I got not 1 but 2 in the SAME day!


All I gotta say is: YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!

I got not one, but TWO Liebster Award nominations this week…on the same day even. These were from two awesome ladies with great sites of their own Melissa from Adventures with CaptainDestructo and Trish from Hand Full of Stamps. Thanks so much Melissa & Trish for nominating me…I was sooooo excited when I saw it!!!




The Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers by bloggers. It is a way to acknowledge each other and say “you’re doing a great job”. It is for blogs with 200 or less followers, so it’s also a great way to spread the word about smaller blogs and get them more readers and followers! When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person(s) who nominated you. You pass the Award onto 11 other blogs (make sure you tell them you nominated them!) and ask them 11 questions. You’re not allowed to nominate the blog(s) who nominated you! (To get the button, right click the picture on my page and save the picture to your computer. You can then upload to your blog.)



Random facts about me:

Sorry ya’ll…I cheated on this one…I had two of these and trying to come up with random facts twice just wasn’t gonna happen.

 

1)     I LOVE the colors pink and green and even went to the extent of making Hailey’s room pretty much all pink and green.

2)    I could probably live on sushi and veggies for the rest of my life. (do I….no, but it’s a thought)

3)    I used to be a firefighter.

4)    On the work note….have worked in the medical field in some way, shape or form for like the last (yikes) 20 years. The last 10 specifically in Pediatrics.

5)    I am LOVING doing the stay at home thing with Hailey…I thought I’d be bored silly and pulling my hair out a LONG time ago.

6)    I don’t like odd numbers…if I can make stuff even, I will.

7)    Music is an important part of Hailey and I’s days…every time she eats or we go in the car…we have music.

8)    If you get me started talking or writing (as you’ve probably figure out)…good luck getting me to stop.

9)    Needless to say, I don’t normally meet a stranger…outgoing and friendly is my middle name (I guess that’s where the girl gets it from).

10) I actually come from a 5 kid blended family as well.

 

A Collective sigh of relief to have that one done….


Questions I Was Asked by Melissa:

 

1)     What is your favorite food? Sushi and all kinds of fruit and veggies.
2) What is your dream job? I am actually doing it right now…staying at home with Hailey and doing some Graphic Design, Marketing and PR on the side. (A big change from the norm of working in Pediatrics.)
3) What did you want to be when you were a little kid? That’s easy…a doctor.
4) What was your favorite book as a kid? Yikes, I’ve had so many and I’m still a bookworm.
5) What is your favorite color? I love pink and green, but to only have one choice it would be green.
6) What season is your favorite? Summer is by far my favorite season. I’d much rather be hot than cold (YES, even after Georgia’s 100 degree weather this summer).
7) What is your favorite holiday? Hummm…it’s pretty close between Halloween and Christmas. I love decorating and how much family/kid involvement are in both!
8) If you could have one day to do anything, what would it be?
9) Which chore would you rather do, dust, grocery shop, or laundry? I’m wondering when shopping became a chore. (LOL, as long as it’s during the week, during the day) I’d by far pick shopping over everything else.
10) How many kids did you think you would have as a child? (I always said I would have twins Adam and Amy.) That’s funny because I always wanted to have twins that were a boy and a girl so I could get it over with in one fell swoop. Obviously I was outta the loop on that one….thank you god for not listening to me!
11) What do you look forward to most about fall? I know I just got done extolling the greatness of summer and surviving the heat, but I am looking forward to the cooler weather, changing of the trees, the kids back in school and holidays coming up.
If I can eat this....you can make it through (she's cheering you on)

Questions I was asked by Trish:

1)     If you could meet one person in your lifetime, past of present, who would it be? Yikes, I have no idea…lemme think on it!

2)    What’s a MUST on your bucket list? Travel out of the country. I’ve been to Mexico and South America, but I’d like to go to Scotland, Greece and Australia.

3)    If you could be a cartoon character which on will you choose and why? Hummm…I’m thinkin’ I like that cute new show on Disney called Doc Mcstuffins. When you were little…I don’t know about you, but I was always working on my dolls and stuffed animals. (I guess it was a precursor to my adult job).

4)    Who inspires you the most? My husband…he’s amazing. I think that man could do absolutely ANYTHING he put his mind to.

5)    What is your favorite color and why? I love the colors pink and green, but if I were to have to pick only one…I’d go with green. That’s a Kelly or grass green. I think it’s probably because they are colors you see a lot in nature (specifically in the garden).

6)    What is your favorite movie? It’s so hard to pick just one movie. I have it narrowed down to Somewhere in Time and Gone with the Wind.

7)    If you could do anything for one day what would it be? Oh…where to start!

8)    Which is you favorite coffee, tea or soda? I don’t drink coffee so that’s off the list, I try to limit soda but I still like it, and I LOVE green tea. I could go with a Starbucks iced green tea with 2 splendas right now!

9)    What is you biggest pet peeve? Do I have to pick just one? LOL, no seriously….my kids leaving the cabinet doors open in the kitchen. At one point my husband started taking them off…needless to say that backfired. It made it too easy for them!

10) Why did you start blogging? I love to write and have been doing it in some way, shape or form my whole life. A lot of our family is spread all over the place…sooooo writing and getting pics and info about Hailey to everyone were a couple of the motivators. All the other stuff that came with it was just the icing on the cake.

11)  Do you Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest? For how long? Actually, I do all three. It’s crazy how they can suck up time and you not even realize it….so I limit how much I’m on them. I’ve been on Facebook for years, but Twitter and Pinterest have only been for about the last 6 months or so.

  3. Thank you so much for the honor! I am flattered to be in the company of your other nominees, as well. :)

    BTW-- I totally hate the open cabinet door thing, too! Hubby tries to drive me crazy by leaving them open on purpose and then betting on how long it will take me to close them. :S

  9. Congrats on your double Liebster! Pink and green are my favourites too. I love them together....And I'm with you on the sushi and fruits and veggies too. I could pretty much live in just. that. Except that I don't eat fish so it's all vegetarian sushi for me. :)

    1. Hey Laura,
      Thanks...I am SUPER excited. Funny thing is, is Hailey is already the same way. She rarely eats red meat and could especially live on fruits and veggies (she definately has mommy's sweet tooth though).
