Liebster Award Nominations

Liebster Award

Last week I was nominated for the Liebster Award by another blogger, Cherie at In Cherie’s Words. If you haven’t checked out her blog you should jump right over there & let her know that I sent you. Cherie thank you for nominating me for the Liebster Award, I am thrilled.

But it also reminded me that I was nominated several months ago by another blogger, Misty at Denverista. In my defense I was still so new to blogging that I just thought it was “pat on the back” blogging lingo. Sorry that I dropped the ball Denverista & didn’t answer your questions.

When a blogger accepts the nomination, she will answer a series of questions that are asked by the nominator, as well as nominate other bloggers with her own questions.

So this time I am following through. I hope that you enjoy the questions and answers as follows:

What magazine do you enjoy reading? I subscribe to a few but if I had to pick just one it would be All You Magazine.

If you could indulge in any meal without gaining any extra weight, what would that meal be? My favorite meal is probably my husbands grilled steak, baked potato, and salad.

Who’s your favorite actor/actress, and why? Not sure I have an actual favorite. But if I had to choose I would say Sandra Bullock. She is great to watch & seems to have a great personality.

What’s the worst household chore you dread doing? Gosh, that is a toss-up between laundry & dishes. Surprisingly many would think it would be scrubbing toilets.

What’s your pet peeve? My pet peeve would probably be smacking. If you can’t chew that gum without smacking then spit it out. Oh, wait! Maybe it’s a bad parking job. ;-)

Taking pictures or taking video? I take more snapshots. I have gotten too comfortable with my iPhone camera that sadly I don’t even carry my camera anymore, but I need to.

Favorite morning beverage: coffee, smoothie, juice, or none? Coffee! Is there really any other morning beverage?

What type of books do you enjoy reading? I like to read books that will better me in some way, self-help books.

If you were to get a FREE car of your choice, (doesn’t matter of it’s cost), what would it be? I would love to have a Tahoe or Sequoia again someday. So you can deliver either any time.

What’s your favorite season (winter, spring, summer, or fall)? My favorite season has always been Fall. I love to watch it changing to the season, all of the beautiful colors.

If you could freeze your age, how old would you be and why? Maybe 40. Oh, wait! Am I even there yet? Because I have realized that we are truly blessed; I have a wonderful husband and 3 wonderful kids, and great friends.

Liebster Award Rules: (Yes, there’s gotta be rules)
1. You must link back to the person who nominated you
2. You must answer the 11 questions given to you by the person who nominated you
3. You pick 11 nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions. You CANNOT nominate the person who nominated you.
4. You must tell the nominees that they have been nominated by you.

This was challenging! There are so many great blogs out there that it was hard to just nominate 11 blogs. It has been great getting to know these bloggers and I look forward to watching them succeed every day. If you have been nominated and choose not to accept, please let me know & I will select another one.

I nominate the following for the Liebster Award:

All Couponed Out
Tim and Angi
Key Rants
Mom Explores Virginia Beach
New Mama Diaries
Comfort Couture
Mending the Piggy Bank
The Pearl & The Pilot
Time With Thea

And the questions that I ask each one are:

1. What movie would you recommend and why?

2. How do you spend time for you?

3. What book would you recommend and why?

4. Where is a place that you have or would love to travel for vacation?

5. What sports did you/do you play?

6. Do you have pets, what kind?

7. What has been a favorite or best gift that you have received?

8. What is your favorite form of exercise?

9. What accessory is a must have?

10. What is your favorite tv show?

11. Do you have a guilty pleasure?


  1. Wow! I am glad that you won again! I guess that I am not the only person that thinks that you are an amazing blogger. Keep up the excellent work that you are doing!

  2. Hi Tamara! What a surprise and an honour. It is interesting how bloggers connect even though we are from different countries. I read your about page and you certainly are busy and have had a lot of change in your life. Alberta, the province I live in also has a strong oil industry. You might end up here one day as we have a lot of Americans living in this province. ~Thea

      I have always wanted to visit Canada! I hear it is beautiful.
      My husband traveled there for work a few months ago, but not sure which area.
      I think it is great to see where other bloggers are and look forward to reading more from you as well.

  3. Congratulation on The Liebster Award. I love to read about how other bloggers live, especially those who are from overseas. I love to see other culture.

  4. Congratulations on the award! Such an amazing accomplishment :)

  5. Congrats on the award! I agree that coffee is a great morning drink! Although I still tend to drink in moderation (if I drink at all) because I am a nursing mama!

  6. Thanks so much for nominating me! Yay! Its always nice to be recognized by fellow bloggers! :-)
