The Liebster Award

liebsterblogaward

Check that out.  Isn’t she a beaut?  This is my first blog award nomination, so excuse me if I make a big, goofy deal out of it.  The Liebster Award is given to blogs/bloggers who are new-ish and are still developing a strong following.  I was nominated by the witty authoress of Balancing Bedlam.  Thank you, Lisa!

Without further ado, here are the rules that  accompany acceptance of this nomination:

I was asked to answer the questions that follow, so prepare yourself to be amazed!

  1. What’s your favorite movie?  I have many, but the first that comes to mind is The Odd Couple 2.  I can recite most of it from memory.
  2. What do you do for fun?  In my dreams, I spend a lot of time solo in the mountains.  In reality, I watch a lot of Hulu and read a lot of books far too quickly.
  3. If you could choose any profession in the world, what would you do?  I would be a librarian in a privately-owned library.
  4. Where would you move with your family if you could go anywhere?  We would move off the road system, but stay in Alaska, aka the greatest land on earth.
  5. What’s one thing you wish you had done before kids or when you were younger?  I would have loved to have traveled out of country for a year or so.  Seeing as my husband and I started out so young, we still have lots of time left to see the world, and we get to include our amazing young people in some of our adventures.
  6. What’s something you look forward to later in life?  I’m most looking forward to shifting priorities one day, from wife and homeschool mama, to wife and full-time community volunteer.  If I could work part-time and volunteer part-time once we are empty-nesters, I’d be grateful for that, too.  I’m excited for the future that I can’t see, but that I know God has waiting for me.
  7. What’s one of your favorite books?  Aside from the Bible, Pride and Prejudice could satisfy my literary desires for the rest of my life.
  8. What’s one goal you have for your blog?  One?  Just one?!  Okay, I’ll play along.  One of the goals I have for my blog is to develop my written communication skills in a rapidly advancing, tech-driven world.
  9. Why did you begin blogging?  I began blogging as a creative outlet, sort of a public corkboard where I could semi-anonymously smash my written thoughts up whenever I took the time to jot them down.
  10. Who is one person, living or dead, you’d love to meet?  Thomas Savage!  He is an ancestor of mine who came to North America in 1607.
  11. What’s your absolute ideal weather?  72 degrees F, partly cloudy, with evening rain as we fall asleep.

On to eleven random facts about yours truly!

  • I have super-tiny toenails on my baby toes.
  • I’m not a fan of massages.
  • I had braces for about four years.
  • I have a hard time taking people seriously if they are provocatively dressed.
  • I would love to have long, thick, curly hair.
  • I take deep pride in being a natural blonde.
  • I knew my husband (before he became my husband) roughly four months before we decided to get married.
  • I want to throw a wet sponge at anyone who says they “don’t read”.
  • As a toddler, I winked at men in uniforms.
  • I wish I’d had more confidence in myself growing up.
  • I rejoice daily that all three of my children thoroughly enjoy reading.
