And The Liebster Award Nominees Are (#2)......

And the Liebster Award Nominee is ME!!!  Again! I have the honor of being nominated for a Leibster Award! For the second time! Risa over at Counting My Blessings thought I was  super awesome and deserving! Thank you so much Risa, you rock! I do apologize for the non-timely response.  The delay has been due to my entire household having the sore throaties, coughing, sneezing, upset tummies, watery eyesies, non stop poopies,  achies,and can't catch your nose runnies! Otherwise known as the cold/flusies! Blek. Cough*, sputter*, Hack*, wipe*! (and blogger deleting half of my original post! It feels like I have been working on this post for 10 years! Geez!)

Now you ask, "What exactly is a Liebster Award?"  Well dear readers, it is a nomination from another blogger, that means your blog is an up and coming blog!  It is for bloggers that have less than 200 followers, that deserve some recognition and support. We all need a little support to keep on blogging, right?  Well, the award is passed on to other bloggers that fit the criteria, to help spread the word!  It is also a fabulous way to get to know your fellow bloggers!

 My predecessors  have researched the word liebster.  Liebster is a German word meaning; sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.  I am honored to be called all of those things.  Especially cute.  I can rock cute!

The Rules are Simple

1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5. No tag backs.

  1. I enjoyed reading your answers. I started blogging to combat boredom myself (while on maternity leave). What's the KARMA bus?

  2. When Karma delivers whatever is coming to those who got it coming? In other words, I would love to be around when all the people who have wronged me, or my family, get delivered their helping of bad karma. I fully believe what goes around comes around, and I would love to be "driving the bus" or be a fly on the wall when they get theirs! Has anyone else responded to you yet?

    1. Aww I get it. Yeah that would be pretty sweet. You were the first and the only so far to respond to the Liebster Award. Wouldn't bother me too much but others have made other posts. Either this one is taking more effort so they're taking longer to put it out there or it's just not that important to them. Oh well. I tried.

  3. Thank you! I never thought I would be so HAPPY to be given a homework assignment! hahahaha THANKS! I will work on this a.s.a.p!
