Liebster Award Nominated!

The past 4 days have been filled with throw up, diarrhea and a baby that is not a happy camper, but a midst all of that craziness I received a great gift!

The lovely Marge from Fit & Beyond 40  nominated me for the Liebster Award!
I feel very honored that she not only found my humble new blog but that she liked it enough to give me this nomination! 

What is the Liebster Award you ask?
It is an award that we as bloggers can nominate fellow bloggers that we enjoy reading!

So here are my requirements:

1. Thank the Leibster Award Nominator on my blog & link back to their blog.
2. Answer 11 questions from the nominator
3. List 11 random facts about myslef
4. Present the award to 11 other blogs that have 200 followers or less that you feel deserve the award. Leave a comment on their blog that you did so.
5. Copy & POST the award on your blog

Here are my answers to the questions:
1. Why did you start blogging?
My love for writing and my passion for improving my life collided one day and here I am :)

2. If you could eat lunch any where in the world, where & what would you eat?
I would love to have lunch on the harbor (any harbor, any ocean) eating fresh shrimp and crab!

3. Whom, What or Where does your blogging inspiration come from?
My inspiration comes from every day life. I am always looking at ways to improve my life and when I see someone else who is succeeding at something I want to do it inspires me! For example if I pass someone running on the road I always think... "man I wish that was me"

4. How do you handle a stressful day? 
Honestly, a large Dr Pepper with crushed ice is my saving grace! Also a nice drive with my windows down cools me down as well.

5. What do you hope that your children remember about you? 
Since I am a new mom I haven't narrowed this down quiet yet but the first thing I think of is that their mom worked hard for what she had and always made time for us. 

6. What is your favorite recipe?
Well I am not much of a cook but my favorite thing I make has got to be my Chicken Enchilada soup

7. What is your favorite quote?
"If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything."  - Gordon B Hinckley 

8. What projects are you working on right now?
Wow that's a loaded question! Okay I'll rattle some off really quick.... painting my red bookshelf black, painting canvas for a decorative art piece in my dining room, building box frames for fabric art work. 

9. What is the best thing about you?
I am pretty easy going and try not to let things bother me to much. 

10. Will you follow the bloggers that you nominate? 

11. What makes you giggle?
My baby girl is pretty funny!

11 random things about me:
1. I LOVE to read!
2. I will read just about anything that comes with a high recommendation
3. Being a published author has always been a dream of mine
4. I always have a pony tail on my wrist even if my hair is already pulled up
5. I am very good at procrastinating
6. When I am stressed I chew the inside of my cheek
7. I have killed almost every plant I have ever had
8. When I picture myself in my mind I am not wearing glasses (I have had glasses for almost 15 years)
9. When I was going to college I went snowboarding at least twice a week during the winter
10. I cannot watch scary movies! Even the commercials for them on TV freak me out
11. I am actually very content with where my life is at right now.

Here is a list of Bloggers that I nominate for the award. Please check them out they are really good :)

And of course don't forget to go see Marge at Fit and Beyond 40!
