Liebster Award - Again!

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Thank you Laura at The Horton Family Blog for nominating me for another Liebster award! I am so happy to have found her blog and it is on my list to read daily. If you have never read it, you should go take a look!

So now, you get to learn a little more about me! Here are the questions that Laura gave me to answer...

1.  If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?

This is easy, without question, it would be my brother. You can read about him here. He passed away almost 10 years ago very suddenly. If I could have dinner with him and have one last chance to talk to him, I would choose him, every time. 

2.  What is your favorite childhood memory?

I think my favorite childhood memories, are getting into trouble with my cousin Stacy, who is more like a sister to me. The things that we remember the most and make us laugh every time are the things we did that got us in trouble!! Although not funny at the time, now we all laugh about them!!

3.  Dust, mop, clean the bathrooms or vacuum?  Which is your least favorite and why?

Can I say all of them?? I don't like to clean, but if I had to choose just one, I would say clean the bathroom. 

4.  What are (or would be) staple vegetables in your summer garden?

This reminds me I need to get some seedlings going! We always plant tomatoes, peppers, zuchinni and cucumbers. Then each year we try a few other things. We only have a small raised bed, but I try to grow what we eat all the time! 

5.  What one thing would you do differently on your wedding day?

I would choose a color and let my bridesmaids pick whatever dress they wanted in that color! That wasn't something that started to get popular until after I got married and I just think that it looks great, and is fair to every girl. 

While I am thinking about it, I would also go with a rustic theme, think lots of mason jars and chalkboards :)

6.  What do you put on your hot dog?

Ketchup and Mustard, and when I am not lazy, cooked onions! 

7.  If you were granted three wishes, what would they be?

1. For my 2nd floor to miraculously appear on the house tomorrow! 
2. Take a family vacation to Bermuda (since doing this post, I have been thinking about it a lot!) 
3. Health and happiness for years to come for our family! 

8.  How do you fold your socks?

One inside the other, does that make sense?? Then there is just a pile of unmatched socks because no fail every load seems to "eat" a sock! 

9.  What do you enjoy most about blogging?

I really love getting the chance to document my life. It has been a great outlet for me to talk about my struggles, but is also fun to share the things I love! I have also met some great people and wonderful communities of other bloggers!

10.  If you could have one super power, what would it be?

To be invisible! I am nosy and would love to be able to see some things without being seen. For example, I would love to check out my kids at school when I am not there! 

Now for my nominations...

Mascara and Mason Jars
The Bohemian Housewife

  1. I loved your answers! Thanks so much for the shout out!

  2. Thanks Sandy! I also have a cousin who is like a sister to me and we got into SO much trouble growing up! :)

  3. 1. My Dad passed away suddenly and unexpected 5 years yesterday, I feel your pain and I'm so sorry for your loss.
    7. I would give anything to snap my fingers and our home renovation would be complete.
    8. Haha- I have a bag in the laundry room for socks without friends, when it's full, we go through it and make matches. I hate it!!


    1. So sorry for your loss as well, unexpected death is so difficult. Thinking of you, anniversaries are always difficult. Home renovations...uughhh. You will be seeing a lot about that on here hopefully really soon!

  4. It's funny how getting in trouble always makes for the best memories :)


I would love to hear your comments and suggestions...
