Awards are wonderful! Liebster Award #2!

Wednesday - 3.6.2013

Liebster is a German word meaning; sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

"What exactly is a Liebster Award?" Well adventurers I'm glad you asked. I am honored to accept this blogging award, it makes me feel like people actually read my blog! Basically, a blogger nominates other blogger for the award because they enjoying follow/reading their blog. It's an award that gets cycled around by bloggers, maybe you should just read the rules. I was nominated by The Wild and Wonderful Adventures of Gingerssnaps. So a big thank you is in order!

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.

3. I'm a bit on the wild side, I've been snowboarding for 15 years now, riding dirt bike since I was 5 years old and as of 3 year ago riding a street bike. Of course, all of those things have been put on hold while I'm baking this little bun.
4. I love to cook and entertain. Finding new recipes, tweaking them to my taste and serving my friend and family is my ideal way to spend an evening.
5. I'm a graphic and blog/web site designer. Check out my design site at Bombshells Designs!

7. I'm one of the boys, I can do anything boys can do. Even pee standing up, it's not pretty but I can do it. Grew up getting along better with a group of boys then one girl.
8. We watch Motocross. Only sport ever on in my house.
9. I'm a total geek. I love computers, I teach myself how to use any gadget in a matter of hours.

11 Questions asked to me by the Gingerssnaps

1. Where were you born? 
I'm a So. Cal girl.

2. What is your most favorite thing from childhood? 
Playing outside with my brother and neighbor kids till the sun went down.

3. Why did you start blogging and why do you blog now? Is it the same reason you started blogging?
I started blogging because I had a rough start to the beginning of my adult life and needed some where to let it all out. And I thought maybe I could make a little "me" cash from it on the side.

4. What is your favorite silly made up word?
Discomboobulated, kinda like discombobulated but sounds better cause the word boob is in it.

5. Who is your favorite leading man/woman?
Right now I love Elementary and Johnny Lee Miller (Sherlock Holmes) is just a riot.

6. Who is your favorite heroine /hero from any book and why? Catwoman because of her awesome black outfit!

7. Have you gotten to know any of your fellow bloggers personally? Yes! Sarah over at Enjoying the Epiphany is just a hoot, not to mention I designed her page. ;) And Alicia over at Moms don't Say That! has really been there for me through this miserable pregnancy as she was suffering from a equally as miserable pregnancy.

8. What is your favorite holiday?
Don't celebrate the holiday's, too commercialized. After researching them I realized people just celebrate them for the sake of tradition rather than what they truly represent or reasons they were created in the first place. Not enough fact for me to want to celebrate any particular holiday just because everyone else does.

9. Who is your role model and why? 
My mommy, she has proved herself strong and wise over the years.

10. What did you want to be when you grew up? Are you there yet, and are you what you wanted to be as a child?
I wanted to be a supermodel. I tried for a little while in my early twenties, but gave up when I realized I'm too much of a dependent person to be in an industry like that and how easily I would be sucked into the sex, drugs and God help me who knows what else. So now I'm the complete opposite a God fearing, stay at home mom.

11. What is your favorite quote?
Dr. Seuss - "I am weird, you are weird. Everyone in this world is weird. One day two people come together in mutual weirdness and fall in love."
