Leibster Nominee

I just discovered that a fellow blogger, adot, , received an award called the Leibster Award. Congratulations! I recommend reading adot's blog because it contains a wealth of information that is presented in a reader friendly way. Well, also, because it's a darn interesting blog!

Since I had no clue as to what the Liebster Award is, I looked it up.

The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster?  The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn't that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it's a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.

She nominated my blog and I am suppose to answer her questions posed to her nominees. So here it goes....

11 Questions They Have to Answer:
  1. Cat or Dog or Alpaca? about goldfish? It probably sounds animal unfriendly, but there's only so much poop one nurse can clean up. I'm selfish that way.
  2. Do you have any allergies?    NKDA  although I am terribly allergic to ragweed. I keep Allegra in business in the fall months. Perhaps I should buy stock options.
  3. Say you won $10 000 000 dollars, what would you do with it? (it was going to be 1 000 000, but $1 000 000 doesn’t go very far anymore)   Buy some stock in Allegra, take care of my family, give to a few charities and yes, quit my job. I would find something else to do perhaps a position where I can eat lunch and pee every once in a while. For splurging....I would travel with my hubby and kids. This is probably boring, but it's what comes to mind right now.
  4. Where is the furthest place you have traveled to?  Once summer I actually got to travel around the world: California to Japan to Singapore to Malaysia to Bahrain to Malaysia to Netherlands back to the US. It was wonderful!
  5. What is your favorite song?   It has always been Pachelbel's Canon. It broke my heart when I heard it used for a car commercial one time. Right now I really like Sail by AWOLNation.
  6. What do you spend the greatest percentage of your waking time doing: sitting, standing, or standing?  Standing, definitely standing.
  7. Would you live a year without technology?  Sure, why not? Wait, let me think about that....
  8. Do you have any piercings or tattoos or rebel-marks?  I haven't heard of rebel-marks???  I did celebrate a milestone with a tattoo. So....I got that going for me.
  9. What direction does your bedroom window face? (that wasn’t supposed to be so creepy)  North. That is a unique question!
  10. Are you aware of your own health?  I guess so....
  11. Do you have a favorite phrase or word?  For the longest time I exclaimed "Shoot a Monkey" instead of a cuss word because of my little kids. I once cussed like a sailor. They changed that for me. I guess it's now "PISS!" when something goes wrong. I didn't realize this until I heard my 9 y/o say this when she was working on a project and something went wrong. At least it wasn't shit!
Thank you, adot, for the nomination and questions!


  1. Where is the tattoo, and what it is? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Nothing peronsal, but if I were a goldfish swimming around in a pet store; and I saw you walk in the door; I swim like hell and hide my little grotto!

    1. I know, my fish track record probably precedes me!
