An Award Nomination....

So some sweet gal nominated me for a Liebster Award. Her name is Samantha Griffin and you should definitely check her blog out! Thanks Samantha!!

Now, according to the rules for this award, I have to nominate 11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers and have not yet been nominated. I had a hard time finding that many blogs that met those requirements. I then researched this award a bit and found that it originally called for nominating 5-8 blogs. Also, somewhere along the way I read that the follower requirement was less than 2000, not 200. Soooo....I stuck with the 200 follower rule, but went with 7 blogs that I like to read and thought you might too.

The other rules require me to answer 11 questions from the person who nominated me, tell 11 things about myself, and ask 11 questions of the people I nominate. Here goes.

Questions I was asked:
1- Are you an early bird or night owl? Neither really, but if I have to pick, I would say night owl.
2- Where would you like to travel (anywhere, any time)? Italy. Now.
3- What book, as a child, did you love the most? There were so many, but as a tween I loved the Babysitter's Club series (classics, I know! lol)
4- What do you struggle with (meant to be a broad question)? Patience with my kiddos and remembering they are just KIDS! Oh yeah, and my weight. Ugh.
5- If you had 3 days to live, what would be the first thing you would do? Spend time with my girls and my husband doing all the fun, silly, messy things they always want to go, but that I put off because I am too tired and it is too messy.
6- Do you talk or text most? Text.
7- What was the address to the first email account you made? My first email account was the one my university assigned to me as a student. I know my name was involved, but I never used it so I can't remember it.
8- When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? Lawyer. What do you want to be now? Still working on that.
9- What are you currently obsessed with? Owls. Don't know why, but they are so cute!
10- Team Edward, Team Jacob, or Team I Don't Care? Team I can't choose!!
11-When was the last time you read a great book and what was it? I love the Flavia DeLuce series by Alan Bradley, and also the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich (laugh out loud all the time when reading her!!) and it has been a while.

About me:
1- I am a knitter. A very unadventurous one, but a knitter, nonetheless..
2- I LOVE books and libraries!! (Maybe I should have answered #8 with librarian)
3- I love my kindle and my iPad almost as much as real books.
4- I wish I could craft ALL the time!
5- I really think I would open a yarn store if I had the $$$$
6- I have developed a fear of heights since having my second child
7- I have met the Pioneer Woman twice and want to do so again!
8- I heart Harry Potter
9- Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday! 
10- I was a gymnast in my younger days.
11- I also love Friends (the show)

Yes, I am total dork! But I don't care!!

Questions for my nominees:
1- Cake or cupcakes?
2- Books or movies?
3- OCD or spontaneous?
4- Live T.V. or DVR?
5- MAC or PC?
(yes, these are all important questions that readers need to know! lol)
6- What is your favorite recipe blog?
7- What is your favorite holiday and tradition for that holiday?
8- What is your favorite food?
9- Did you have an imaginary friend as a child, and if so, what was their name?
10- Have you met any of your blog idols and who was it?
11- What is your middle name and do you like it?

Well, there you go. Now you probably know way more about me than you ever wanted to. I hope it doesn't scare you off! Here are the lovelies that I am nominating:
