I Got The Liebster Award!

I have been nominated by Kendra at Pots, Pans and Paintbrushes for the Liebster Blog Award!
Wow Kendra, THANKS!!!

What is the Liebster Award?

A designation given by bloggers to other up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. The purpose of it is to show appreciation, sprinkle some kudos and help spread the word about blogs. I must say, it DEFINITELY made me feel loved.  

The actual word Liebster is a German word for 'dearest' or 'sweetheart'.  

Rules of the Award
  1. Write 11 random things about yourself
  2. Answer 11 questions that the nominator set for you
  3. Create 11 questions for your nominees
  4. Nominate 11 blogs with less than 200 followers (link them in your post, let them know they’ve been nominated, no tag back!)

11 Random Things About Me 
  1. When I was younger I thought I wanted 10 kids.  Well, I ended up only having 5 of my own, but then married a father of 5, so I really did get my 10!
  2. I hoard any kind of crafting paper like a boss!
  3. I usually wake up between 4 and 5:30 am.  It's kind of a funky body clock thing, but I love it!
  4. I feed between 7 and 13 people on a regular basis.
  5. Up until 5 1/2 years ago I swore I'd never leave Utah, but I've never once regretted moving to Arizona!
  6. David Hasselhoff asked me out on a date a loooong time ago.  I stood him up!  It was the right thing to do!  ;)
  7. Also a long time ago I was a ring girl for a major boxing match that was being shown on ESPN nationally.  At the time, I didn't even know what ESPN was!  I also had my own personal body guard and it was one of the coolest nights ever!
  8. Do I even dare admit this out loud?  I'll probably lose the 2 ppl who are reading this, but I just don't get the Twilight thing.  I mean, it's somewhat entertaining, but I. Just. Don't. Get. The. Hype!  Why didn't they cast the gorgeous guys from Vampire Diaries for Twilight instead?  I maybe would've been more interested.  Alice is the only one who is beautiful enough to be truly worthy of being a vampire on the Twilight series.
  9. I never used to be much of a TV person, I'd just buy seasons of DVD's.  But then Cowboy showed me how to the DVR.  Ugh.  Big mistake!
  10. I always wonder what people who don't craft/sew/DIY/decorate/blog/ and do a bunch of churchy stuff do with their spare time.  I mean, what the crap are you people doing all day?
  11. I am direct and straight-forward, yet the most indecisive person in the world. {Kendra, I'm gonna hijack this from you, because I'm exactly the same way!}

 Response to Kendra’s Questions for Me
  1. Favorite ice cream flavor?  Pralines and cream, or any of the flavors.  I like them all!  {there's that indecisive showing it's face}
  2. If you could have a super power, what would it be?  Super Mom!  To be able to help my kids make the right choice, every time!
  3. What inspired you to start blogging?  I moved to Arizona and left one of my kids and all of my friends behind in Utah.  Wanted to have a fun way to keep updated.  That's about the same time Facebook really took off, thus I never did much with the blog til last year.
  4. Where is your most unique scar, and how’d you get it?  A have a huge one of my right bum cheek from a major moped accident in Mexico.......on my honeymoon.  There was always a lot of excitement in that first marriage!
  5. If you could drop everything to pursue your dream career, what would it be?  I'm doing it!  Wife/Mom......I've already been out in the work force and done things I've loved.  I enjoy being a home body!
  6. How many kids do you have or want?  I pretty much answered that in #1 of Random Things, so how about I change it to this:  I hope I can remember all my grandchildren's names, cuz I'm sure we're gonna have at least 40 of 'em!!!  I'm worried!
  7. We’re going on vacation. Where are we going?  Fiji to scuba.  Or Italy to see it all!
  8. What is your favorite motto/quote/saying?  Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine!  Even my kids know this one by heart.
  9. We’re opening a restaurant. What kind of restaurant are we opening?  American Diner that serves everything....including Mexican and Italian!  lol  {there's my indecisive kicking in again}
  10. Name a guilty pleasure.  New Girl.  I have to watch it alone because it's inappropriate for kids and my husband just doesn't get it.  It's so hilarious!  My favorite is season 1, episode 11.  You crafters will love that one!!!
  11. What are your top three arts and crafts weapons?  Paper trimmer, of course.  Paper piercer.  Scotch glue.  {you're seriously going to make me stop at 3?  That's cruel!!!}

  1. SO much fun reading your responses, and I absolutely love your motto (gotta right that one down)! And, glad you were able to find 11 great nominations. That was tough for me too, considering the <200 followers rule. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
