It’s My Birthday!

Just kidding.

But it kind of feels like it.


Sweet Jenny from DIY with Jen and B has nominated me for the Liebster award.  (Thank you!)  What is this award?

The Liebster award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 or so followers.  What is a Liebster?  The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

This is what I have to do:

 1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
11 Random Things About Me:

4.  I quit my job as a registered nurse one month ago…by choice…blessed that I am able to take a break.

7.  I was raised a country girl…turned to a wannabe city girl…and now finally returning back to her roots.

Questions from my nominator:

1.  What was your last dream about?

Oh lordy…in my last dream…I was rock climbing…with a chicken.  

Haha!  I think I dreamed that because we are about to get some chickens!

2.  How do you normally start your day?

I wake up and let the kiddos out to potty…make breakfast…then plop my booty on the couch with some coffee and the laptop.

3.  What is one thing you are really good at?

Sleeping.  I can sleep anywhere at anytime.  Actually…I can feel that changing as I get older…

Wow…these questions are making me sound super lazy!

4.  What is one thing you are not so good at?

Time management.

5.  What’s one thing in life you wish you could change.

My Aveda facial products…it has worked wonders for my long battle with acne!

10.  What advice would you give to new bloggers that you have learned from your experiences?

From my own blog…I guess I have to say the post that was everyone else’s favorite…
