The Liebster Award



OMG!!  Thanks to Anita from discoveringyourhappiness  for nominating me for this award.  I appreciate that she has taken the time to read my blog.  She’s one of my favorite bloggers and the fact that she has read my blog blows me away.

I love her blog.  It’s truly inspiring.  I look forward to reading it every day.  Check out her latest post:  Staying Inspired.

Please bear with me.  There was a few things I needed to learn to finish this post (which I will write about in my next post) and there’s a possibility that I did them wrong.  Forgive me, but I couldn’t figure out the link part of it (and this is probably the most important part) so I didn’t link any of the blogs I nominated.  I tried four times and then my menopause mad kicked in and I gave up.   Any suggestions on how/where I can learn to do this would be greatly appreciated.  I am already a week out on passing this award on and I didn’t want to take anymore time.

1. Where abouts in the world are you from?  I am from the United States

2.  How long have you been blogging for?  A year.  The first six months was hit or miss because I let my fear hold me back.  I was afraid that people wouldn’t like what I wrote or they wouldn’t read my blog at all.  The last six months I have been blogging seriously and trying to post two times a week.

3.   What does your morning routine look like?  I work 2nd shift (2 – 10:30) so I usually get up between 8:30 and 9:30.  I write for an hour.  Shower.  Call my husband.  Make my lunch.  Sometimes I write in my journal.

4.   What do you do for self care?  Breathe.  Write in my journal.  Try to eat healthier.  Get enough sleep.  I really need to get a pedicure.  That’s one of my fav’s.

5.    Lollies or Chocolate?   Definitely hands down  CHOCOLATE!  My fav chocolate is M&M’s.  My coworkers tease me because I think each color has it’s own flavor.  I eat the brown one’s first, then the yellow, green, orange…

6.  What a typical weekend looks like for you?  We have our 5th wheel travel trailer on a permanent  campsite about a half hour from where we live.  My brother has a campsite next ours and my brother and sister-in-law have a site next to my brother’s. My family and my in-laws come to visit.  My sister-in-law and I float on our floaties in the pond while the guys do projects at the camper.  We usually fry out for supper and have a bonfire.  This is part of my self-care.

7.  What is one of your hobbies?  Reading.  fiction, romance, self help.  I am a book whore who definitely doesn’t like sharing her books.

8.  Places you’ve traveled? To the Bahamas on a cruise ship.  The    and The Disney. Disney has a an island, Castaway Cay, which is an old airstrip and very cool.  It they had a hotel on the island I would stay there for a week.  Beautiful, beautiful island.  

9.  Places you want to travel to?  Istanbul, Turkey.  I feel I have lived a past life there.

10.  Where do I see myself in 5 years?  Gosh, I really don’t know.  I am 52 years now…. where do I want to be at 57?   Hopefully I’m still breathing.

11.  Where do you see your blog in 5 years?  Who knows?  Maybe I’ll get a book deal from my blog.   Just kidding!  🙂  I honestly haven’t sat down and reviewed my goals in awhile.  I still can’t believe I’m 52.  I don’t know where the time went.


The reason I nominated the four bloggers below is because they are positive and their posts inspire me.
