Liebster Blog Award


I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by Allie Duthie. Thank you so much, Allie! This gives me another chance to share with you all some of my favorite blogs!

This one is a bit more complicated! So, it’s taken me a little while to fill it all out (especially trying to choose just 11 blogs that I enjoy).

The rules:

1. Add the award icon into your blog

2. Link to your nominator and say thank you.

3. Post 11 random things about yourself.

4. Answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you.

5. Nominate 11 bloggers (and let them know).

6. Post 11 new questions to the bloggers you nominate.

Random Things:

1. I never wear dresses. Ever. Minus my wedding, but if I could’ve gotten away with trousers, I would’ve worn them.

2. I still haven’t chosen a book to read (although all of your suggestions were amazing).

3. My favorite candies are Crunchie and Kendal Mint Cake, but neither are easy to get in Texas. (Except at the British Emporium)

4. I hate pickles, cream cheese, and peanut butter.

5.  I get really hyper off of one cup of coffee. One of my old coworkers used to think it was hilarious! Sitting still becomes a real chore.

6. I cut the collars off of all of my t-shirts, even ones from work, because I can’t stand a collar around my neck.

7. I can’t sew. My husband got me a great sewing machine for my birthday once, but I can’t sew a straight line.

8. I love Doctor Who! That’s probably not a secret. I have been avoiding the last two episodes though. I don’t like to cry.

9.  I wish I could design knitwear. I always admire designers! I’m just not really creatively inclined. I follow formulas and patterns well, though!

10. Whenever I cook, I ignore the recipe. I use the basics, like oven temperature, but after that, anything goes!

11. I used to play the piano.

Questions from My Nominator

1. If you could be any animal, what would you be and where would you live? I would be a cat so I could sleep all day, and I would live in a mansion filled with comfy pillows.

2. Marry, snog or avoid: Donald Trump/Psy (Gangnam Style)/Gérard Depardieu? Can’t it be Gerard Depardieu with all of the above? I adore him. I can’t believe I have to answer this (haha)! I guess avoid Trump and snog Psy, reluctantly!

3. Favourite Disney character and why? Merida from Brave because she’s independent, loves her family, and doesn’t need to be saved. She does the saving.

4. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4. What is it? “on it.”  Well that’s no fun. I should’ve picked a better book!

5. Do you like coffee table design books? Sometimes. Depends on the topic. We don’t have a coffee table, though, so they end up on our bookshelves with the rest of the books.

6. What movie/song sums up your life? Some Nights by fun.

7. If you could change something about your home, without worry about expense or mess, what would you do? I live in a renter, so I can’t do anything. If I could, I’d paint the walls and maybe do accent wallpaper on a wall here and there.

8. Have you read any Agatha Christie books? I haven’t. I’m not that into mysteries.

9. If you could have any supernatural power, what would it be?  Super speed!

10. What would a close family member say is your most annoying habit? I fidget. I find it very challenging to be still for long periods of time.

11. f you could be any character in any musical, who would you be? Tracy Turnblad!

  1. The most recent episode of DW is great, the one with the new companion who we first saw in the Dalek Asylum episode. I could watch it over and over again! But the end of the Ponds…. Yeah, I understand staying away from that. You can watch the Christmas episode with no fear, though. The new companion (well, almost) is delightful!

  2. It was so fun to learn a little about you! I too, wish I could design knitting patterns. But I also love to sew! And love to read. I fidget too.. hardly ever go to a movie theater! Can’t sit still that long! Take care!
