The Liebster Award

I just found out that I was nominated for the Liebster Award.  I don't think I've received any kind of award since 2nd grade.  It's blogging award given to you by another blogger that wants to acknowledge your blog and likes what you share.  I was nominated by Nicole at Just Say Hi at  Thank you Nicole!

Here's what the nominated blogger does:
Share 11 random facts about yourself;
Answer 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you;
List 11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers (as best as you can tell based on their page) They should be bloggers that you believe deserve some recognition and a little blogging love!
Post 11 questions for the bloggers that you nominated to answer; and Let all the bloggers know that they've been nominated. You cannot nominate the blogger that nominated you.

So now I get to give you 11 Random Facts about me:
1) I have freckles . . . lots of them.
2) I sing along with the radio in the car.
3) I run or walk practically everyday.  It's better with a friend.  I do it for health (and because I enjoy eating) but also because it makes me feel happy.
4) I'm allergic to shellfish (like Epi-Pen allergic), cats, and penicillin.
5) I'm Mormon.
6) I hate making my bed, but I love an organized dishwasher.
7) I LOVE life and believe each day is a gift.
8) I like people to be nice.  I'm not always nice, but I try to be.  So I hope other people try too.
9) I believe in laughter.  Laughter soothes the soul.
10) I take a long time to make decisions.
11) I should have died 6 years ago.  Read more HERE

Now I'll answer Nicole's questions from Just Say Hi!:

1. What is your go-to meal when you don't feel like cooking that night? I make taco salad with black beans, baked chips, salsa, and salad fixins.  We have it almost every week (cuz there's always a day I don't want to cook!)
2. All time favorite chick-flick? I love all the BBC-type stuff.  Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Jane Eyre.
3. What is your guilty pleasure? I love the TV show The Middle on ABC
4. I Love Lucy or Gilligan's Island? I Love Lucy all the way.
5. Tea or Coffee? Neither.  I've never had them.  I'm Mormon, remember?
6. Why did you decide to get into blogging? I'm kinda shy and I wanted to have a "voice" and I hope to bring some good into the world.
7. What inspires you? Music and ordinary people who make the world a better place.
8. Have you ever kept your new years resolution? No.  If I did, I'd be pretty amazing by now.
9. How do you break away from all the craziness in life? I try to turn off all news/media, devices, and just think quietly and relax.  If that doesn't work I watch a good movie or read.
10. Where do you see your blog in the future? I see it as a place to help inspire and uplift women to find happiness in motherhood and a place to support each other.
11. Who took a cookie from the cookie jar? Probably me.  I adore homemade cookies.
