Liebster Award Blog!

I would like to Thank Lorna K @, Kim M @   and Julia @  for nominating me for this award! I am sorry that it took so long for me to accept it...I REALLY do appreciate the nomination!   So here you go Lorna, Kim, Julia, and the rest of the blogosphere! Happy Liebster reading!

Answers to Lorna K:

1.      Why did I create this blog?  Hmmm…well I needed a way to vent about all of the stupid crap that goes on in my life and what better way than to have a bloggary on the Web! J

2.      On average how much time a week do you spend blogging or doing blog related activities?  I probably spend about 5 hours a week blogging…I am new to all of this so I am kind of a dork when it comes to blogging and what I need to do to get my posts read…hence my post about how I am a Twitter challenged!

3.      What is your favorite season and why?  Well, my favorite season is Winter because I am a shameless shoe whore and I love to wear all types of boots!

4.      What do you like the most about yourself?  I think that what I really like about myself is that I really try to take everything with a grain of salt and not try to be too serious about life and all of the craziness that can consume you if you let it. 

5.      Who is the most important person in my life?  Hmmmm…well you all are going to laugh because I rant about him so often, but that would be my clueless, time challenged, husband who is in a first place tie with of course my four year old daughter and our dog Buster!

6.      What type of music do I listen to most? Well…I listen to pretty much everything…which is obvious because all of my posts have very random artists that I listen to…from country to R&R, classical, to Sam Cooke (who is really my favorite artist if truth be told!).

7.      What is your most prized possession? I think that it would be my wedding ring and my digital photos on my computer.

8.      What is the one thing that gets on your nerves? People who are always Debbie Downers and feel like they need to bring me down with them!  L

9.      What do you love most about your followers?  That they think that I am funny because my husband seriously DOES NOT!  HA!  J

10.  Have you become close friends with your followers?  I have just acquired some followers and I hope that I become great friends with all of them.

11.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?  I am such a perfectionist control freak that sometimes, I get too “wrapped around the axle” and just need to understand that it is OK to have things that are not quite perfect…even though it will drive me crazy, sometimes I just need to let it go. 


Answers to Kim M:

1. What is the main focus of your blog? Ranting about things in life that are annoying and oh yeah…my scatter brained husband!
2. What is your favorite candy? I LOVE Jelly Bellies!!!!
3. Fiction or Non-fiction? Fiction
4. What is your favorite season? Why? I love Winter because of all of the great coats, sweaters, and boots that I get to wear!  I am a serious shoe whore! 
5. Are you an animal momma? We have a boxer named Buster…he is really my other half’s pooch but he knows who feeds him…the dog is smarter than his owner!  HAHAHAHAHAAA!
6. Do you like to cook? If so, what is your favorite dish to prepare?  I do like to cook BUT I really like to cook Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner with all if the fixings…and of course PIE!  I love to bake PIES!!!!!!
7. What is your favorite movie? 16 candles! 
8. What did you find most surprising about blogging? That people actually read my ranting crap about nothing and actually think that it is entertaining! 
9. What sport/ activity did you do in school? Ummm…well…I have a Korean mother…sooooo…I was kind of a forced book nerd…so I would have to say that I played basketball and I was and still am HORRIBLE at it! 
10 What was your most frivolous purchase? Hmmm…I bought a COACH bag…at FULL price…need I say more?
11. What is the one thing you will not leave the house without? My daughter and my cell phone! 


Answers to Julia:
1. Why did you start blogging?  I really enjoy writing and ranting about my husband is just a benefit of the whole writing process…you all in the blogosphere get to reap the rewards of my husband’s lack of brain cells!  J
2.  If you could eat lunch anywhere in the world, where and what would you eat?
I would totally eat lunch in Beijing, China…I would gorge myself on authentic Chinese food! 
3. Whom, what, where does your blogging inspiration come from?
My blogging inspiration comes from all of the things that swirl around in my head all day and of course my bottle blond husband gives me A LOT of material to work with!
4. How do you handle a stressful day?
I really do not stress the little stuff…as long as I remember to put pants on every day and make sure that my daughter has her pants on as well before she gets to school…all is well!
5. What do you hope that your children remember about you?
That I loved her unconditionally and that I spent a lot of quality time with her….
6.What is your favourite recipe?
Oddly enough it is the Philadelphia Cheesecake recipe that is on the back of the box!  I know…I know…no creativity here!  J
7. What is your favourite quote?
It’s the little things that count….
8. What projects are you working on right now?
- My blog and I am finishing up a YA novel that I have re-written a gazillion times but have been TOO chicken to send to any agents or publishers!  J
9. What is the best thing about you?
I am pretty easy going and I think that life is full of hilarious things that just make me laugh!
