Oct 30


You are probably wondering what a Liebster awards is!  Until I heard today that I had received this award, I had never heard of it before either!

It was announced today that I have received the Liebster Blogging Award!  Awesome that your writing gets recognized and I think that is fabulous.

I have been trying hard to make my blog exciting (getting better as I write, I hope!) and thank you to my friend Laura Scriver who nominated me!  She has an excellent blog  about travelling and recipes and knows how to make a killer sandwich and help you save money planning your trips away. Please check out her blog at Laurascriver@blogspot.ca

This award is given to a blogger from another blogger.  This is a means to celebrate with each other the successes and also to get to know each other as well. The way it works is that I will tell you 11 things about myself, answer 11 of the questions asked to me by my nominee, and then I will ask 11 questions to the bloggers that I will award the liebster award to.

About me:

1.  I have 4 children.

2. I have 4 pets – a , cat, rabbit and chinchilla.  At one point, I had more. My bird got out of the house 9 days ago and hasn’t been seen since. 🙂

3.  I love steak, chicken wings, ribs and chilli. (when I am not watching my diet)  mmmmm!

4. I enjoy running but need to give myself a kick in the butt to do it!

5. I enjoy writing.

7.  I love cooking and trying out new recipes.

8.  I would much rather listen to music than watch television.

9.  Laundry is my worst chore. With 6 people in the house, it is never ending!

10. I am very family oriented!

11.  Seriously, 10 things isn’t enough?  I have to come up with 11?  Hehe!   I love renting a cottage every year with my family and making more memories! And ice cream trips on vacation!

Okay, so there you have it. There are a few things you may not have known about me!

My friend had also asked me some questions to answer:

  1. What time do you get up in the morning?  6:30 am
  2. What do you want to be when you grow up? My husband asked me this yesterday- succesful blogger/fundraiser/media guru 
  3. What was the best birthday gift you ever received? anything my husband has bought me
  4. What was your last dream about? something that makes no sense as always, cannot recall
  5. What was on your wall when you were a teenager? GQ photos and Freddy Kruegger
  6. If you could live anywhere (and job and family/friends weren’t considerations), where would you live? Italy
  7. Where is the most interesting place you’ve ever been? Why was it interesting? Canada , True North strong and free
  8. What is a useless piece of information that you know?  hehe selective
  9. If you could spend the day with any public figure (celebrity, author, politician, historical figure), living or dead, who would it be and why? Terry Fox.  He inspired as a kid with his courage and will never forget watching him run past me. I remember watching his funeral at 8 years old, on tv and crying. Such a great role model for children and adults alike.
  10. What is your biggest pet peeve? Being late
